Questions you should ask yourself

I've been in a bit of a blogging slump lately. I want to write, honestly, I really do.. But I struggle with knowing what to share, how much is too much, etc., and so I tend to err on the side of caution. I can always put it out there later if I want to, but once it's out, it's never coming back. So in the interest of posting something - anything - I decided to steal an idea from Kelly and answer some questions. Because when you're not sure what to write, answering some random questions about yourself is always the best idea, right??


And we're off...

1.) What are you addicted to? (or, for a grammar freak like me, "To what are you addicted?")
The TV show Chopped. It's basically like, my favorite show of all time, ever. Except for "Friends". Which is also awesome.

2.) What's the first thing you would do if you were invisible?
Figure out a way to get away with some nefarious activities, i.e. pulling an "Oceans 11" kind of prank or something similar. Or just go to the house of someone I didn't really like and proceed to scare the ever living daylights out of them. Because a.) it would be hilarious, and b.) I'm apparently a really terrible person.

3.) Pictures or plants in your office?
Why can't I have both?? Ugh. But if I had to choose just one, I'd choose pictures. They don't often end up dying because I forget to pour water on them.

4.) If you could magically change a part of your body, what would it be?
Toss up between flattening my stomach, or leaning out my thighs a little bit. Probably the thighs thing, because I'm pretty curvy generally, and I could always flatten my stomach through diet and exercise, but with thighs and a waist like mine, it's dang near impossible to ever find a pair of pants that fits.

5.) Do you know people who would want to have sex with you immediately?
I feel like this is a strange question, but whatever.... Yes, I do. But I really couldn't care less about it one way or the other, because I'm not interested in that with any of them. So that's just weird and awkward.

6.) How often do you Google yourself?
Only when I am applying for a new job somewhere. If I were a recruiter or hiring manager, that's the first thing I'd do with every application I received, so I figure it's a good idea to know what someone would see if they googled me.

7.) Have you ever been depressive?
Since the actual definition of this word is "tending to depress", meaning that I depress others, I'm gonna go with probably, but I'm not really sure.

8.) What is the most embarrassing thing you could find on the internet about you?
I honestly don't know. I mean there are some pictures from college parties and stuff on my Facebook, I guess (I really need to take those down), but even those aren't that embarrassing. Suffice to say at this point that if there's anything all that embarrassing of/about me out there, I don't know about it.

9.) Do you think that time heals all wounds?
Huh. What a timely question this is... No, as a matter of fact, I don't think so. I think time can maybe form a scab, as it were, over wounds. But, just like when you have an actual scab, if you leave it alone, it's still there and may still hurt from time to time, but you do generally okay. If you start to pick at it, though, everything from the original wound can come rushing right back. So no, time doesn't heal all wounds. The only thing it can do is make you used to them, and used to the pain to the point where maybe, if you're lucky, you won't feel it or think about it much. But it never really goes all the way away.

10.) Which words of wisdom from your parents would you never say to your kids?
I would probably teach less of a black-and-white approach to things... I'd be a bit more "live and let live" than they are.

If you're interested in answering these questions yourself, I'd love to read the answers. Feel free to either leave them in the comments, or even do your own post, should you feel so inclined.

  1. I know how you feel. If it wasn't for the scheduled posts I already have then I wouldn't have much to write about either. I try really hard to come up with things ahead of time so I don't have to go days without posting. Its hard.

  2. i google myself but only from a blog perspective... i'll check to see if i enter my name in and the word "blog", if my site comes up and thankfully it doesnt (i think people at work suspect i blog but aren't quite sure).

    Vodka and Soda

  3. I google myself about once a month, just to see what I find. You never know!

  4. Oh my stars, your blog looks absolutely beautiful girlfriend. I just noticed it. Your button - I love them too.

    Anyways, I have never heard of Chopped. And like you, I Googled myself to see what potential employers would find, etc. and deleted things that popped up. Damage control baby!

  5. Yeah I would need pictures not plants in my office to prevent any death occuring.! :)


I'd love to know what you think! Leave me a comment - it will make my day!
