Make up ten questions for your nominees.
Nominate ten people.
I was nominated by a blogger that I follow pretty much everyday! Stumbling Through Faith is a great blog. I know lots of people don’t really get into the faith thing, or really anything “religious”. Most people are totally against it actually. I love the hope that this blog gives. The realness of it’s words, and knowing that I’m not one of the only ones that believes in something bigger than me out there. In the universe. In the kindness of people to lift us up and propel us forward. Thank you for that, and thank you for the nomination…
- Why is your favorite color, your favorite color?
My favorite color is blue. It always has been and it always will be!
- What experience in your life has changed you the most?
Spending 2 months in a psychiatric unit and then almost 2 years outpatient doing a really intense DBT program. Hard work, but the most important and life-altering time.
- What is the worst advice you were ever given?
I’m kind of stumped by this one. I’m not really a person that gives much advise actually. I like people to try and figure things out on their own (for the self discovery part) but i will say, I have said a few times, “Oh just take one more drink!”. Not very good advice most of the time.
- If you could change one thing from your past, what would you change and why?
The only one thing that I regret my whole life is not going away to college and experiencing that part of young adulthood. I stayed home because I fell in love. I attended a community college, which was great and all, but I didn’t have the same experiences that some of my friends, siblings, and cousins did. I don’t really regret anything in like, but that I do. If i could go back, I would change it in a heartbeat.
- What is your dream job?
My dream job would be a traveling singer. No one famous our anything big, but just playing small bars around the country and having a small but dedicated fan base. That would be awesome! I never wanted to play shows of thousands, just small intimate “jam sessions” where I can make out Callie’s face in the crowd. Where I can hear Marco singing along, and Nikki screaming out, “Go Swipply!” (My friends and I have been calling each other Swipply for over 10 years now, and it’s funny because when we are all together and someone says “Swipply” you would expect the 3 others to turn around, but we usually know who it’s being directed at…its so funny!) That would be the best!
- If you could live anywhere on the planet, where would you live and why?
I would live in Holland. I’ve been there and up until then I would have said Aruba, but Holland is the place to be. I love that everyone rides their bikes everywhere and that people are so friendly. I love the freedom and the respect that comes with it. I love the culture, the food, and the art. I loved everything about it! There are also the more obvious reason, but what really drew me to the country was the chill in the air, the floating laughter that seemed to serenade me every time we left our hotel, and the kindness of the people.
- What is one thing you wish you could get rid of?
Callie’s tons of crap! Oh, and the birds! I HATE those damn birds!
- What is the best advice you were ever given?
You have to live in the now. Don’t go behind, don’t go ahead, just breathe and think “NOW”. Think it often. Best thing…helped me survive!
- How do you sleep at night?
I don’t really, but when I do, it’s usually fetal position on my right, with an arm around Callie. I start on my back, but it never stays that way. And i snore! LOUD! Like, I don’t think you get how loud. Like wake the neighbors loud. My friends say my snoring is ridiculous. It’s so bad, that I fight sleep on the train on my commute to work because I feel that everyone will stare at me and be completely annoyed and file complaints.
- Do you have any pets?
Do I have pets! I have a freaking zoo! I have a kitty, 3 birds (that I hate and am DYING to get rid of, but they belong to Callie, so ugh!), and a Rabbit. If you count my kids, we round the count out 7 wild animals in my house!
