I was REALLY surprised when I saw my name at the bottom of Mauri’s beautiful blog post, so I would like to thank her for nominating me!
Being a bit of a techno-phobe and moron, and being very new to the WordPress way of blogging – I may have panic’d a bit about how to do everything the rules stated 🙂
But luckily….. I’m up for the challenge
QUESTIONS TO ME:
Why did you start blogging?
I actually used to have a blog many, many moons ago, but just stopped writing. I started this blog about two weeks or so ago because I felt I needed an outlet for some of the craziness in my head, and feeling like I haven’t got any of my sh!t together. I thought that by starting to write again, I could beat my demons, express how I feel, and try and get a little of me back and keep me from going into the dark and connecting with people who feel the same as I do and even explore with those who don’t.
What is your favorite scent?
Ooooh, so I love the smell of the first rains, as well as freshly cut grass and cut watermelon. There is also nothing nicer than the smell of a braai (bbq for those not living in South Africa). I must admit I’m a fan of Hugo Boss (the dark blue bottle) on a man
What’s the most ridiculous thing you’ve purchased?
Wow, the most ridiculous thing I’ve purchased…. I had a bit of a shopping addiction a while ago (what with the instant gratification and all that) and would often just spend money on anything and everything. I can’t say that I’ve purchased anything completely ridiculous….. I am a bit obsessed with Boston Terriers, so I did buy a pair of white sneakers, and had them painted with Bosties – they aren’t ridiculous – just fabulous!
What makes you the happiest?
Now this is a bit of a loaded question. I’m in the process of finding my happiness, but I can honestly say that my dogs make me happy. They give unwavering love and support and they make me laugh. They don’t care whether I’m in the dark or in the light, and they don’t care if I’m in a good mood or bad, they’re just there.
I really enjoy colouring (yes, I’m an adult), and I love making people feel special on their birthdays…. I’m super fussy about birthday’s and believe everyone deserves to have the best day
Where do you see yourself in 5-10 years?
I’d honestly like to be happy. I want to have a life where I am loved, and can love back. I would like to own my own home, and have traveled the world a bit and made amazing and beautiful memories.
What is your favorite song or favorite artist? (the inner music geek in me decided to reuse the question that was given to me :P)
I have insanely eclectic taste, so I can go from rock to RnB without batting an eye. I am REALLY enjoying Alessia Cara at the moment. especially her song Scars to your Beautiful
How do you like to spend a day off?
I’m such a lazy person (even though I hate to admit it), and an ever bigger couch potato (again, something I want to change), so I really enjoy watching tv, and I enjoy taking my dogs to the local off-leash dog park where we get out into nature, and just exist in the moment. I do love theatre and live shows too
What will finally “break the Internet”? (if it’s not already broken)
This question for the techno-phobe/moron :)P
I think humans are. I think some very clever internet-knowing person is going to push a magic button and make the internet just stop which will force us as human beings to be just that… human beings who will need to start interacting face to face and not sit behind a screen in the fear of rejection
What is your favorite time of the day and why?
I’m a morning person, so I’d have to say that time just before sunrise, where everything seems to get really quiet, and then slowly the sky fills with colour, and then things come to life.
Is there any trivia you know that is interesting, yet also useless?
My mind has a plethora amount of useless information….. but it very seldom works on demand.
oh, so everyone knows how slow and lazy a sloth is right? So their mating ritual is anything but….. from foreplay to well, the end of the deed, takes a whopping 5 seconds!!!
What do you want to be remembered by?
I think my unwavering love and loyalty even though it seems to be more of a negative personality trait at the moment, but it’s who I am in my soul.
I’m supposed to nominate people now – but unfortunately I haven’t spent enough time here to be able to nominate people – so at least I now have a goal, to go through and discover more blogs 🙂
