(Because I'm bored) Tisha pulls a Vanity Fair

Ever checked out the back page of Vanity Fair? There's a little thing called the Proust Questionnaire that all these famous people would answer. And since I don't think I'll ever find myself on the page, here I go... haha.
  • What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery?
      Having given up hope.
  • Where would you like to live?
      Somewhere quiet and secure.

  • Who are your favorite heroines in real life?
      My mom.

      I have yet to read about someone I would consider a favorite. Perhaps Lucy in Narnia, if only for her honesty and purity of intention.
  • Your favorite painter?
      Van Gogh because he's behind my favorite painting. But I regret to say that I don't know enough about art to actually give a proper answer.

      This is a weird answer, but maybe Pharrel Williams because he's behind many of the catchiest beats of our time.

      That I'm tamad. But I'm working on it.

      Editor of a food magazine, and a kick-ass food stylist.
