It’s crazy knowing that I’ve had my blog site published for six months already! Being able to document this journey through my eyes and being able to look back at all that has happened is really cool! I thought today’s post could be something a little different: a question and answer format to get to know me some more. My writings show one side of me, mainly my thoughts and emotions, but today you’ll get to dig a little deeper in my life and learn about my preferences or more of my opinions on certain topics. Let’s dive in!
Do you prefer writing with a black or blue pen?
Now a days people love writing on tablets or their smartphones… it’s just easier. I am holding on to my black pen and paper, I’m old school like that. I don’t know why I still like the classic pen and paper way of writing. Maybe because it’s something I can physically hold on to? Regardless of the reasoning, nothing can beat a black pen. It looks official and classy. I like being classy.
If you could learn a new skill, what would it be?
Oh this is a good question! There are a lot of things I would like to try. I think sewing is a useful skill, however I never learned how to sew. I didn’t take much interest in sewing when I was younger. Such a bummer! Something else that would be really cool to learn would be pottery. I took a pottery class in high school and had a blast, but it’s a skill that requires lots of materials that can get expensive.
Tell us about an early childhood memory?
Unfortunately I don’t have many memories from childhood… they’re all fragmented and don’t fully keep together in my head. I do have one favorite memory that I will never ever forget about. I don’t know how old I was, probably no older than five years old. It was a Saturday morning in early summer, so the windows to the house were open upstairs. My dad was in his bedroom blaring The Knack’s “My Sherona” and I was dancing on his feet. For whatever reason that memory is ingrained in my brain. It’s a happy memory.
What was your favorite book as a child?
I read a. lot. as a child. If I remember correctly, most of what I read were series, not so much stand alone books. The Nancy Drew series were probably my favorite. The original series I think had fifty books, and I must’ve read about thirty or so. I enjoyed reading A Series of Unfortunate Events, too. The inner child in me was jumping up and down when Netflix adapted the series into their own tv show a few years back. I also dabbled in reading Shel Silverstein poetry every once in a while. My middle school reads included The Lightning Thief and The Maze Runner series.
If you had to get a tattoo, what would it be and where would you get it?
I’ve kinda secretly wanted a tattoo on and off for a few years. I don’t think I’ll ever bite the bullet and actually get inked, but I’ve thought about it a few times. There would be two tattoos that I would get if I had to. The first one would be my anniversary date in roman numerals on the inside of my ring finger (VII.XV.MMXV). This one is the most meaningful to me but probably not the most realistic place because the skin on your hands shed cells and rub off more frequently than other places on the body. The second tattoo I would get would be a watercolor tattoo of a flower on my shoulder blade. This just looks so pretty! I think watercolor tattoos are very feminine and can sometimes look better than classic black ink tattoos. Like I said, I would probably never actually do it, but it’s fun to dream!
Do you have any questions for me? Are you curious about anything in my life? I am more than happy to make another question and answer style post with more get to know you questions in the future. These are great conversation starters, ice breakers, or just a great way to dig a little deeper.
