I've been in a... mooood. Which is just a dramatic way of saying that the sun has gone away, and for some reason I was in denial that it was going to happen, so now I'm suddenly having to scramble to do all my winter-mood stuff so I'm capable of being a nice, cheerful, fun person. So, as a side effect, I have been having a really hard time staying motivated to write here, and coming up with things I think people might want to read. So... since I'm out of ideas, I'm going to do one of those question-thingy-deals in hopes that it might bring me out of my mood.
1. When was the last time you cried? And why?
Wednesday night. I was having a serious talk about family and love and life and... well everything with my dad, and I always cry when I have a serious talk with him! To be fair, he usually cries too, and my grandpa cries whenever he feels any emotion strongly (happy, sad, angry, anxious, excited, etc) so it's basically a family trait. We cry easily.
2. What are your 5 favorite TV shows?
Currently I love: Supernatural, Doctor Who, Bones, The Walking Dead, and Teen Mom. I know Teen Mom is trashy, but I just feel so connected with those girls and their struggles because of everything I went through... the TV show started right after I had Buddy and was going through a whole lot of stuff so I will watch it through till the end!
3. What is your greatest accomplishment?
I think probably raising my son. Obviously there are things I wish I had done differently, but my kid is usually respectful, kind, cheerful, creative, smart, full of faith, and unbelievably loving and accepting. Those are all amazing traits that I like to think I had a hand in nurturing!
4. Morning person? Or night owl?
Night owl. For sure. Which doesn't work that well with my lifestyle! Generally, I get to sleep around 2am and wake up at about 6:30am. Then I'm tired and crabby ALL DAY until it hits about 6pm, at which time I'm all of a sudden AWAKE!!!! and ready to be productive until 2am again.
5. How much cash do you have on you?
$6. I'm not a cash person.
6. Household chore you hate the most?
Dishes. It's disgusting to have to stick your hands into old food. Yuck. Conversely, my favorite chore is vacuuming. Although I now live in an apartment with all wood flooring, so I never vacuum anymore!
7. If you could be fluent in any other language, what would it be?
Currently, Hmong. Since I work primarily with Hmong students, and whenever they want to say something inappropriate or tell a secret or be mean they switch to Hmong so I don't understand them!
8. List 5 songs you know every word to:
Lonesome Road by James Taylor, Wannabe by the Spice Girls, every song from the musical Rent, Bobby McGee by Janis Joplin, and Gravedigger by Dave Matthews Band.
9. Who was your first crush on?
Haha! Dan Archiquette. He was in my class from 2nd through 6th grade, so when I started liking boys he was an obvious first choice. I grew out of it by Junior High, haven't seen him since high school, and haven't thought about him in years either. I wonder what he's up to these days?
10. What are three things you cannot live without?
Food, water, shelter. Obviously. But as a less literal answer, my son, my cell phone, and my daddy.
11. Name one thing you wish you did better.
Had confidence in myself and my abilities. I think it would really help me to be able to interact more comfortably with people if I didn't so often feel like everything I do and say is the "wrong thing".
Is there anything you are just dying to know about me? Leave me a comment with the question, and I will do my best to answer it :)
