from one gal to another.

wow, i have been posting a lot today! ah well, i have a lot on my mind plus i don't have anything else to do since i do not feel good.
okay i am going to take a small risk. i was reading a blog today called the loveliest tragedy. the author is not apart of blogger but posts on

anyways, she requested that her readers ask questions so that they could learn more about her. i thought it was such a great idea, plus i really liked the questions that were asked.

so i have decided to answer some of the same questions. i am giving the loveliest tragedy full credit for all these questions so do not believe that i am stealing them.


1-What's the last major life-change you made?
the last major change in my life that i have made is working out again. being healthy is really important to me and i have not worked out in a very long time. my body is starting to feel it. i have already gained a few pounds. so by starting to work out again, i feel moer energetic and alive.

2-What's the most amazing thing about you?
hmm, the most amazing thing about me is probably the fact that i am still alive and that i have made it this far. having gone through many disorders, depression, anorexia, medication experimentation, hurting myself, and even trying to take my own life, i have seen hell and know what it is like to want to die. i am proud of myself that i was able to conquer all of my downfalls and believe in myself to cure my sadness and trials.

3-Do you have a birthmark?
yes, i happen to have a few. you can not really see them however. only if you were to look closely.

4-Who do you love that is special in your life?
someone i am so grateful for and wouldn't be alive still if he wasn't in my life would be my best friend j. i adore him and if he never let me lean on his shoulders when i couldn't move, i just do not know what would have happened. he accepts me for everything i am and not who i am not. he accepts my stubborness, my different and elaborate opinions, and he loves to debate with me just as much as i love debating with him.

5-Do you have any pets? If so, what kind?
yes i have two pets. i have one cat named hannah. she seriously believes she is the whole world and that everyone should bow to her. and i have a kick-ass gerbil named edward. and no, he is not named after the twilight boy. he just looks like an edward and bites everyone but me.

6-When have you laughed the hardest, tell us the story?
hmm, i can not really recall a specific time. i love laughing and do so often. i tend to laugh the most when i am with my closest friends because we all have inside jokes with each other.

7-What's your favorite color?
i like red, black, and purple.

8-Do you eat your popcorn with salt or butter or both?
i love a lot of butter and a little salt. i have to say that my favorite kind of popcorn is the kind you get at the movie theatre. i love it.

9-Do you color your hair?
i got my hair colored for the very first time about a month ago when i dyed it black, aburb-brown, and purple.

10-What's you religion?
i am christian.

11-Do you think that wearing bright pink patten heels in public is a GOOD idea?

sure, if the person likes to why not?

12-If you could live in any time in history, when would you choose and why?
oh this one is so easy for me. i would choose to live in the late 1700's to early 1800's. the time of jane austen. i have always adored the romanticism of living the way they did. and i also love the 70's. everything was so funky and fun back in that time.

13-Have you ever read any Harry Potter?
i have read some of them. but i think that seven books to make a point is just too long. i don't like them very much. the movies are even worse.

14-What is the biggest life lesson you learned?

forgiveness means that you have let go of the hope that the past will be different.

15-What is one thing that you wish everyone knew about you?

i am so much more than meets the eye. i just wish you would not judge me on first impression.

16-What's your favorite smell?
i really love the smell of the ocean and rain. i also love perfume. i can not get enough of it. and believe it or not, i am a big fan of the smell of pike place market in seattle. the salty air just gets to me.

17-What's the one thing you'd like to tell a newcomer to your blog before he/she starts reading it?
i just want people to know that i am nothing but a dreamer that loves musing and thinking about life. if you do not appreciate what i have to say then that is alright. we all have our opinions and i respect yours as well. i enjoy feedback. not because i am one that enjoys getting attention through blogging, but because i love other's views on things. i love opinions. so feel free to say anything you want.... as long as you do not be too mean. but i have never had a rude comment so far so i don't think i have to worry about that too much. haha

18-Who is your favorite author?
right now i am highly enjoying chuck palahniuk. he is a genius and so inventive. i also have always been a fan of jane austen and shakespeare.

19-What is your raisn d'etre' (your reason for existing)? How has this made you a better person and influenced the people around you?
it is funny, but i feel like the main reason i survive is to help other people with their existance. haha i know that sounds silly but it is true. i love giving advice.

20-If you could go somewhere..anywhere where would you go?
i want to go to the ocean right now. i miss it with a heartache.

21-How often would you LIKE to have sex?
i have to be honest. i have never had sex. i know, i am eighteen and a lot of people my age have already lost their virginity. but i am very, very protective of myself and do not want to give myself to just anyone. i do not see anything wrong with sex at all. in fact, i look forward to it. but when i am giving myself to someone i just want to know that i am not wasting anything. but as soon as i find that someone, i will want to have sex a lot.

22-What is your earliest memory? i can remember things clear back when i was two years old. i have a good memory when it comes to things that have happened. the first thing i remember was a dream i had. my family was living with bears. :)

23-What is your biggest pet peeve(s)?
i hate, hate, hate, immaturity. and i hate small-mindedness and people that are always happy. i wish people would know when to be serious.

24-What is your favorite body part, and why?
oh my, i have never really thought about a "favorite" body part before. i guess on a guy i really like hands if they are strong and big. you can do a lot of things with hands you know? ;)


okay so i would love it if anyone would ask me some more questions as well. i love answering questions. anything would do. and i thank the loveliest tragedy for the question ideas.
