    ...no

    What are the things that stand between you and complete happiness?

    I wish I was closer to my family and didn't have any financial uncertainty. The latter is a part of life, I guess.

    What will people say at your funeral?

    Nice words, hopefully..

    If you lost everything tomorrow, whose arms would you run into to make everything ok?

    Any of my closest friends.

    Does this person know how much they mean to you? When was the last time you told them?

    Yeah, I'm not really one to talk to people about things like that. I guess I should make an effort to change that.

    If you could send a message to the entire world, what would you say in 30 seconds?

    Something to tell them to stay in school and shut up about things they don't know anything about, and wish them the best.

    If today was the last day of your life, what would you want to do?

    In all honesty though, I'd probably thank and apologize to everyone I know and then just chill.

    If your entire life was a movie, what title would best fit?

    "Winging It", probably.

    How would you describe yourself in 5 words?

    curious, introverted, friendly, creative, empathetic... I guess..?

    What are the chances you’ve passed up on that you regret?


    I regret not making myself socialize more early in late middle school and early high school (around the time I was most active on this site, funnily enough).

    How do you apply the learning from this regret to your actions today?

    I make an effort to meet new people and do things with them. It's really fun getting to know different kinds of people, especially in a diverse place like my college rn!

    Which player, in your opinion, didn't play enough international cricket?

    A very unfortunate case - Phillip Hughes. He was only about to turn 26.

    Similarly, which player has played far too much international cricket?

    Shahadat Hossain. Don't even get me started.

    Which Cricket World Cup, in your opinion, was the best of all time?

    2007, the most inclusive one with the most reasonable format. Did a world of good for us and Ireland, and I can imagine a very competitive tournament with that format now with 12 test playing nations in the mix. Also that Australian team was an absolute joy to watch.

    Which non-cricketing athlete would you most like to see trained up into a cricketer and why?

    Usain Bolt. He is actually into cricket, has played in charity games, and is overall an incredible athlete.

    Which eight teams would you include in a Premier League made up of franchises from anywhere in the world?

    I actually don't have an answer to this, haha. I'm very out of touch.

    If sleep was unnecessary, what would you do with that time?

    Actually listen during lecture. :p Also, spend more time on things like graphics and photography. I'm usually swamped with schoolwork when in college and would like to fit in time for my hobbies, and also manage to stay awake during lectures.

    An honest magician offers you the chance to live forever. What do you say?

    I'd pass, but ask for a set date for a natural death during my sleep. I can imagine things getting severely boring after one point.

    What common thing will you never experience?

    Can't think of any off the top of my head, since I always go out of my way to try new things.

    What is something that you will always buy the expensive version of?

    Anything tech-related, once I enter the workforce, of course.

    Do you ever find yourself wanting to answer your own questions on your AMA?

    Not really, but I do want to answer more questions from others!

    What's is the best and worst thing about uni according to you?

    Best thing is the fact that I'm out on my own figuring things out by doing them. Not only learning how to manage my workload and social life, but also learning how to take care of myself when I'm sick, managing money, or learning what to buy at the grocery store. Also the fact that I'm surrounded by 30k+ people around my age who are in a very similar situation but with different perspectives and backgrounds makes it enriching since I'm able to learn about the same things in different ways.

    Worst thing is the stress that comes along with everything. Granted it was my first semester so things got to me a little too easily, but I wish I'd get the chance to take my foot off the gas without having my entire world just crumble.

    Which uni are you in (PM or ignore if you want)?

    Shouldn't be too hard to narrow down, but I'd rather not say.

    In what ways do you think your uni life could be improved? Satisfied with your uni or did you want a better one?

    Well, when all my decisions came in, I was pretty bummed that I had to stay in-state. Got rejection letters from my dream schools, got waitlisted and then rejected at a couple of places and kinda had to settle bc I couldn't afford out-of-state tuition. I didn't have to settle for anything low bc my school is really up there for my program of study (electrical & computer engineering) but I still would've liked to have more options. Having come here though, I feel like I wouldn't trade it for any other place. I've met and got closer people who are genuinely nice and caring, and probably won't graduate with a significant amount of debt while still getting almost all of the opportunities of my dream schools. My life is great and I'm happy where it is. Only wish my future apartments would come with meal plans like my dorm. :p
