What is your favorite meal?
It’s hard to choose just one thing because I’m such a foodie. I’d have to say pasta is my kryptonite specifically Fettuccini Alfredo. I would eat that everyday if I could with a side of bread dipped in olive oil with parmesan cheese. My cravings are kicking in as I write this. I guess I know what I’ll be having for dinner tonight.
What’s your favorite thing about blogging?
I talk about this in detail in my 1 year blogging anniversary post. But to reiterate, my favorite thing, other than the actual writing part, would be connecting with other writers / bloggers in the community. It has been so nice to connect with like minded souls (especially during quarantine last year). It felt a lot less isolating being able to spark conversations with you all through the comments of my posts or via social media. And what’s so unique about the blogging / writing community is the amount of genuine support we have for one another. We all just want everyone to succeed in their own way. I have yet to meet anyone who was cruel. Well…minus the person who stole my work but other than that it has been an amazing experience. Read about that story here.
What was your favorite class in high school?
Being a writer & not saying English class would be a crime wouldn’t it? I was the type of student who would prefer writing a 20 page paper over taking a standardized test. I just wasn’t the best test taker for some reason. I guess you’d call it testing anxiety because I definitely knew more than what the results said, I’ll tell you that much. In my junior year of high school, I took a journalism class which would have to be my ultimate academic favorite. After this course, I was eligible to be a news writer for my high school paper my senior year which was such a great experience. I would also pick dance but that wasn’t necessarily a class & more so a dance company team. But the performances & outfits were a highlight to my high school experience.
Are you a dog person or a cat person?
Why can’t I just be both? I have an orange tabby named Tigger who is the family pet. The only downside to moving out of my parents house is not having the luxury to snuggle up with him or greet him when he walks into a room. But Todd & I definitely want to adopt a golden retriever puppy at some point. I think we want to wait until we are closer to having a family ourselves before we venture into that chapter. I’d also love to have a kitten of my own one day along side the dog, but I’m still trying to convince Todd on that one.
How is adulthood going for you?
When I would read quotes about how life will fall into place eventually, I never wanted to believe it. I spent a lot of my 20’s feeling so lost & out of place. But now that I’m reaching 30 next month, I can honestly say I’m in a really good place. Not to say adulthood isn’t difficult at times because it sure is. Keeping up with a house of your own & juggling finances & random responsibilities like going for your car’s emission test are not fun activities. But I also feel really proud I’m at this phase of my life & with a life long partner & perfect teammate. I wouldn’t consider myself the most grown up adult in any means. I still have plenty to learn. But from where I was 10 years ago, I can at least look myself in the mirror & feel proud of how far I’ve come. Never in a million years would I have thought I had started a blog & am sharing my writing with people across the globe. Not to mention to have accomplished an entire year of this passion project. That in itself is going outside my comfort zone & has helped me evolve into the person I am today. I think the key factor to managing adulthood is not to get too comfortable & always allow yourself to grow as an individual. Just because you are an adult doesn’t mean you’ve lost your chance to become someone new.
I really enjoyed answering these questions from Quiet Girl Blog. They were a nice mix of light hearted & thought provoking. I love sharing little bits of my life & perspective through random questions such as these. Again, thank you so much for the nomination. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! I sure will – – I have my engagement party to look forward to on Saturday!
