A bunch of bloggers are doing similar variations to this fun idea. I was asked to participate by Melissa from Chaos and Cheer. Her blog is amazing, definitely check her out! She was asked to answer 11 questions about herself, to see her answers click here. She then asked a few other bloggers to answer 11 questions about ourselves.
Here are the questions for me:
What is your favorite movie you have watched this summer?
I would have to say Unbroken. I love movies that make me want to be a better person. I loved that this was based on a true story. The main character was strong and persevered. I was sobbing while watching it, but definitely one of my favorite movies I have ever seen.
If you had to choose between good looks or being smart which would you choose?
Hands down being smart. Looks fade. And looks are so subjective, a beautiful person with an ugly heart starts to appear ugly in my mind. Same with someone who had a beautiful heart, their appearance improves. I think being intelligent just adds so many valuable layers to who you are as a person.
What TV show is your guilty pleasure and your are embarrassed to say you watch?
Bachelor in Paradise. I am not usually a big fan of these types of shows. I am totally sucked in though. Watching it as I’m writing this now actually. Don’t judge, we all need some mindless TV every now and then.
What is your favorite place to go on vacation?
Oklahoma. Hear me out. I grew up in the Midwest and miss it dearly. I love going out there because it reminds me of my childhood, even though I didn’t grow up in OK. The lakes there are huge, warm and perfect. It’s the most relaxing place and there isn’t pressure to explore a new place. I prefer to feel like I’m at home.
How do you like your coffee?
No. No coffee for me. It’s too adult. Even with all the sugar in the world it tastes like dirt to me. I worked at Starbucks once. I lasted 2 weeks. They made me have a coffee passport so I could tell customers what the coffee was like. It all tastes disgusting to me, I asked them to just tell me what they wanted me to say to customers. We were not a good fit. Bye bye Starbucks, I don’t miss you.
What is your favorite dessert?
Brownies. Always brownies.
What song do you put on when you need something to brighten your day?
“I won’t give up” by Jason Mraz. Or anything pop, like Taylor Swift. Taylor has some great upbeat music. It makes me feel young to listen to her.
What is something new you have been wanting to try but have not done so yet?
Trapeze lessons. It looks so glamorous and I could be graceful!
What life lesson do you wish you had listened to when you were younger?
To not give up opportunities to travel abroad because of a guy. With a little one, it’s so much harder to travel. Also, my standards for where I stay are much higher. Bed bugs and all freak me out. 10 years ago I don’t think I really cared. I gave up an opportunity to study abroad for a semester in Europe, stayed for a boyfriend. Another semester I had an opportunity to study abroad in Australia. Guess what I did? Yep, stayed behind for a boyfriend. No I didn’t marry this man. What was a thinking?! I don’t regret much in my life, but not traveling when I had the chance is one I think about often.
Would you rather have a big mansion or a nice home in the country with lots of land?
Country house with land!!!! I think I was born to be a country girl. I like space. I want more space to do all my activities. I am afraid of small talk and don’t want to be soooo close to my neighbors.
What’s your favorite holiday?
Christmas. You can celebrate for a whole month and most people are a lot nicer. But during the summer I will say 4th of July. I love patriotic music and fireworks.
