I just came across this here and decided to give it a shot. I make take my time with it and keep coming back. We’ll see how it goes. And yes, I’m a blogging fiend today.
1. What Do You Do For A Living?
Art direction for a web development company and graphic design and web design/development on a freelance basis.
2. Who Do You Love?
I love many people (and animals too). Family, friends, pets.
3. Do You Have Enough Money?
Never. Though I guess I do when it comes down to it because I have a house to live in, heat (usually!), a car, food… but more would be very helpful.
4. Are You Healthy?
Yes, I am healthy. Can I be more healthy? Yes. But I think I’m on track. Need to get back on track with exercising but the working full-time (and doing freelance work) in the third trimester is wearing me out.
5. Do You Think You Are a Good Person?
Definitely. I think my heart is usually in the right place. I forgive easily. I’m loyal. I’m honest. I care. Sometimes I may be too blunt or too harsh in my speech, but it’s not coming from a place of malice.
6. How Old Are You?
Well, 34 (35 next month) but I feel like I’m in my 20s most days.
7. Whoâ€™s Your Best Friend?
Dave. And in at second, it’s a tough choice – can’t pick just one.
8. Whatâ€™s Your Childhood Dream?
It was to live in California. Still on my list.
9. How Often Do You Laugh?
Lately, I laugh every day (or pretty close). Pregnancy makes me laugh!
10. What Makes You Smile?
Waking up well-rested on Saturday mornings, Dave’s late night dances, our dogs, visiting my family in NJ, belly kicks, snow days (when we DO have power!), girls nights, dirty martinis, exhausting hikes, taking a perfect photo, finishing a project, gigantic family get-togethers (especially since I don’t get them much anymore), Christmas tree hunting, first days of spring, relaxing by candle-light, impromptu late nights with friends, camping, blasting music, late-night conversations, road trips, walks on the beach, naps on the beach, dolphins, dreaming, getting my hands dirty, seeing old friends and having it feel completely normal and comfortable, talks with dave about our future (talks, not “talks”), writing, rainbows, vacations, new jobs, romantic dinners, long loud dinners, date nights, NYC, art openings, bare feet in summer, long summer days and nights, the future.
11. Whoâ€™s Your Most Dangerous Enemy?
Probably myself, thought not lately. Besides me, mum is the word.
12. Where Do You Live?
I live in a temporary spot for now. It’s sort of like transitional housing. It’s not really a home, but a house, and that’s okay for now. The future knows more about home than I do at the moment.
13. Do You Think Youâ€™re Strong?
Yes, usually. Strength in my beliefs but flexible enough to let them change and grow.
14. What Was The Most Important Thing Youâ€™ve Done So Far?
Probably getting pregnant. And in at close second, letting go.
15. What Was The Most Stupid Thing Youâ€™ve Done So Far?
Most stupid? I’ve done many stupid things, but it’s tough to pick a most out of them. Probably not trusting myself.
16. Do You Love Yourself?
17. What Do You Fear The Most?
One of my biggest fears is being apathetic and/or being content with being content. Not striving for more, not caring to try or getting too caught up in life’s mundane things to find the time/energy/etc. I like to think that being aware that that happens to too many people will ensure it won’t happen to me.
18. What Is Your Favorite Word?
Enigmatic. Well, either that or fuck f&*k.
19. When Was The Last Time You Cried?
Yesterday. Hormones. No heat. Work suckage. Tiredness.
20. What Is The Best Thing That Could Happen To You Right Now?
Well, there’s the easy one – things can continue going smoothly with pregnancy and we will have an amazingly perfect baby. Next up? Dave gets a job in the perfect spot (northern Cali, Oregon coast, right here, western Mass) making the perfect amount of money and I get lots of freelance work with excellent and fun clients.
21. What Is The Worst Thing That Could Happen To You Right Now?
Hmm. I’d like to pass on this one.
22. Picture Yourself In 5 Years From Now
Happy, creative, running my own (design) business from home, living in our perfect home in a progressive town/city with 2 or 3 kids.
23. Do You Regret Anything?
Hmmmm. Not going to art school but only twinges of regret. I think it all worked out perfectly.
24. Whatâ€™s The First Thing You Do In The Morning?
Cringe (I hate waking up early), then hop in the shower; well, more like drag myself into the shower than hop.
25. What Are You Thinking Just Before Going To Bed?
Lately, I’m so tired I’m not thinking about anything before going to bed except for how tired I am.
26. What Was The Highest Point Youâ€™ve Ever Been To?
Somewhere in Yellowstone or Glacier but I’m not sure which is higher. Glacier is my guess – Going to the Sun Road? I’ll have to look it up.
27. If Thereâ€™s One Thing In Your Life You Want To Change Right Now, What Is It?
I’d like more time and I’d like more financial security.
28. What Are You Proud Of?
Proud of getting some clients and doing freelance work and continuing to learn the ins and outs of it (now, if I could only master taxes).
29. Sum Up Your Life In One Sentence
An incomplete journey toward creativity, peace, and happiness.
30. Name The Thing That Annoys You The Most
31. What Is Your No 1 Question To God?
Why did you let money come into being?
32. Do You Have Secrets?
Of course. For various reasons.
33. What Makes You Laugh?
Well, this was also in my smile list, but Dave’s late night dances crack me up (and no, I can’t describe or share them).
Ok, I lied. There are 34 questions:
34. Are You Happy?
Yes, despite feeling drained lately and poor and tired, despite the feeling like a dark cloud tends to follow us at times, I am very, very, very happy.
