The Questions I Was Asked To Answer Are:
The Questions And My Answers:
1- What is one thing you’re bad at but really wish you were good at?
Oh, I am bad at keeping a sensitive conversation going on for more than 1 min, especially if it has to be directed at my person. I find my self-running into trees in my head. Usually, I am a very shy person and if I don’t keep eye contact I lose interest too soon. I wish I am good at keeping such conversation going.
2- What do you think your spirit animal is / would be?
I think dragon, I get easily pissed and spitfire-(yell/angry) although I am doing everything to change all that. As anger could damage a lot of hard work and sometimes whats said can never be taken back.
3- If you could live anywhere, where would you go?
This might come as a surprise I have always wanted to live in South Korea, or Japan, because I like their simple way of life in the provinces Koreans, are obsessed with beauty and fashion. Their standards of beauty are pretty high. They will easily start a conversation out of curiosity. However, Japanese on the other hand-they approach foreigners and offer help if they realize foreigners got lost or just out of curiosity. However, they are extremely shy and introverted so they most probably won’t approach first to make new friends no matter if they are Japanese or foreigners. I also love Ramen- Japanese food and Kimchi South Korean food.
4-What is your favorite hobby?
My hubby might come as another surprise, I love to cook, yes; cooking is another hobby of mine, I am even thinking of starting a foodie post or a new blog entirely soon, I love to try my own recipe as well as recipes from other cool foodie bloggers. I love singing a lot I might not sound like Cece Winans, Whitney Houston or Celine Dion but I surely like singing whenever I feel sad.
5-What was the most challenging part about your blogging journey that you’ve overcome and how did you do it?
Hmmm, this one here is dicey, I have only overcome spiritual battles, but I am not challenges- If any I was able to keep my cool and still taking care of my self and my daughter without any external or internal support from anyone. I am proud of that. Otherwise, I am looking forward to starting a family hopefully this time with a non-narc and a good guy.
6-Cat or dog?
I love cats but I prefer dogs better. So yes to dog, please.
7- Do you prefer being fashionably or comfortably dressed?
I pretty much being comfortably dressed for me its comfort or nothing.
8- What is one long-term goal you hope to accomplish?
To run a successful blog, to make friends and meet them in person through my blog.
10- Favorite movie of all time?
I love “Sound of Music” A tuneful, heartwarming story, it is based on the real-life story of the Von Trapp Family singers, one of the world’s best-known concert groups in the era immediately preceding World War II. “Julie Andrews” plays the role of Maria, the tomboyish postulant at an Austrian abbey
11- What’s your biggest pet peeve?
My pet peeve is when a dog chooses to eat my stuff” When I was a little kid one of our mum dogs ate my shoe, I chased him around the compound with one thing in mind to beat the crap outer him but he was smart enough to outrun me hehe hehe.
12- What is one tip you’d give to new bloggers?
