So I was asked a set of questions when I was nominated for a blogging award, which I really appreciated btw, and because I was nominated last year & have already done a post about it, I decided not to do the whole thing again, but that I’d do a post just to answer the questions that were asked of me. — Being courteous & all that good stuff! 🙂 Plus, gives me the chance to shamelessly talk about myself… 😉 — So here goes…!
1) What made you get into blogging?
That’s an easy one. I am a writer who is a little socially awkward & not very good with people. I lack a confidence in conversing & connecting with others. I am also kind of chicken about sharing my opinions & things. (mean people scare me, lol.) — I needed a way to help me break out of that. — I felt like blogging would be a step in the right direction. — I can honestly say that it has helped. — I still have a long way to go, but I’m getting there! 🙂 Slow & steady! — I was also hoping I’d find a place where I could write & feel encouraged, which I felt would keep me encouraged to continue writing my book. — I still catch myself failing to work on it regularly, but I have gained a lot of confidence in my writing by blogging & the ever so kind bloggers I connect with. — You guys are awesome! 😀
2) What’s your favorite season?
— Winter. I love cold weather!
3) If you could describe yourself in three words, which words would you pick?
— Shy. Compassionate. Lost. — Shy because I most definitely am. Compassionate because I love people & my heart is always going out to others. & Lost, because I tend to feel like I’m getting swallowed up in the world.
4) What’s your favourite quote/saying?
— “I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.” -Gandhi! —
5) Nike or Adidas?
— If we are talking shoes… Nike. If we are talking apparel? I could go either way really! Lol.
6) Where would be your dream place to live?
— Somewhere cold. Lol, but to be more specific… probably somewhere there are mountains. Snow capped mountains? sign me up! Lol!
7) If you were a dictator, what laws would you make?
— Oh my! I’d be a horrible dictator! I am indecisive & super crazy caring & kind! Lol…. Can I be a dictator in a land of hippies? — Peace, Love, & Happiness… We’ll get us a national anthem going & everything! — I know, I know! I’ll pull a Donald Trump! — I will be the one in charge, but I will then hire a bunch of people to make all the decisions for me since I don’t know anything about it! — Winning!! 😉
8) Do you have any regrets in life?
— A few, yeah. But don’t we all? I think that’s just one of those things that come with life itself.
9) Why did the chicken cross the road?
— I don’t know. But I saw one do it the other day! Not even joking… I tried to snap a picture, but by the time I pulled my phone out & got the camera up he had already made it to the other side. (I’m not making this up either! Lol!) There were three of them. One was hanging out in a yard, one was across the highway already on the other side, and one was smack dab in the middle of the road crossing over. — Lol… that chicken seemed to do it because the other chicken had done it already… Are chickens susceptible to peer pressure? I think maybe so. — So I think that’s my answer. Peer pressure made him do it! 😉
10) What’s more painful, childbirth or getting kicked in the balls?
— Well, I have yet to have children & I lack the anatomy that goes with the latter…. However… I’ve seen those t.v. shows where women give birth…. Childbirth for the win! Lol!
