Answers To Questions..

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!


My blog is titled "A Leap of Faith," simply because for me that is what this is. -- I am extremely shy & terrified of failure... but just like everyone else, I have big dreams. --- I have a passion for the written word, for every story told, & for getting lost in novels. Certainly not the easiest world to go out into... especially not for someone so afraid of failure that trying sometimes doesn't seem worth it. -- This blog is just one small step in the right direction! A way to push myself out into the world & stop being so afraid. -- So here's to writing about life, the aspiring writer's journey, & everything in between. Oh, & of course, my leap of faith! :) -Heather.
