Here are the questions given to me and my answers:
1 What is your favourite cuisine?
I absolutely love vegetarian meals. I was a vegetarian for about ten months and have recently transitioned back to a selected few of white meats only. All things vegetables are just my go to because it tastes great, I love seeing a colorful plate, and I feel amazing after eating a clean meal. 🙂
2. What’s your ideal day?
My ideal day is waking up very early, getting the kids ready for school, knocking out all the chores, working out, yoga practice, meditation, personal development reading, meal prepping, connecting with awesome people, reading fiction, knocking out schoolwork early, freewriting for a solid two hours straight, and quietly drinking tea while journaling and listening to Coldplay. 😉
3. What inspires or influences your writing?
Life inspires me. Beautiful sunny days, a clear heart and mind after meditation, the sweet calming feeling I get when rain falls and the sky goes gloomy; so many things inspire me. Living inspires me so as long as I am alive, I will write.
4. Is the glass half-full or half-empty?
Ha! Does the toilet paper go over or under? I suppose we will never really know. It’s really all on how you view things. I say, the glass is half full.
5. Who inspires you?
People inspire me. Those who fight for what they believe in, who create the life they so desire by hard work and determination, who choose to really live instead of settle for mediocrity are who inspire me.
6. What is your favourite book?
This question, I feel like it’s a loaded gun. It’s a trap for avid readers and writers. There are too many! I will say However, the last book that had me head over heels was The Wrath & The Dawn by Renee Ahdieh It was an amazing read and I simply can not wait until next year to devour the sequel!
7. Why did you start a blog?
I started my blog because I felt I had things to offer the world. With a love of life, reading, writing, meeting people, making true connections through common ground, jumping into a pool filled with others who want to be heard just intrigued me. I’m glad I made the leap because I’ve met amazing people and I’ve learned a lot about who I am as a writer while pushing myself out of my comfort zone and sharing my thoughts, interests, my work, my love; turns out, people actually dig it 🙂
8. What is your favourite animal and why?
Cat! Oh, how I love cats! I love how regal they look to me, how they lounge around and come and go as they please.
9. If you could go on vacation anywhere, where would it be, and why?
Europe! I would love to go backpacking and see all of Europe! I have always been fascinated with the culture and architecture and I picture myself roaming beautiful places as I take note of each scene for stories I have yet to write.
10. What job did you want to do as a child? What job do you have now?
When I was very young I remember saying I wanted to be a nurse. Now I am a stay at home mom, wellness coach, writer, college student, and well, I suppose I’m still a nurse in some ways as I tend to my family when they are ill 🙂
11. If you could tell your past self advice in one sentence, it would be?
Believe in yourself, you can do anything and be anything!
