15 Interesting Questions Tag


I really love answering surveys. One of the popular guru girls on YouTube, AllThatGlitters21, posted a very interesting set of questions. Here are my responses!

1. What do you think you can do but can't?
Walk in high heels. I can generally make it from point A to point B without falling but the backs of my feet are so messed up. Like many girls, by the end of the night, my feet are killing me but my Haglund's Deformity makes it that much more uncomfortable. Yet I continue to be delusionally optimistic that my feet won't bother me. I can sometimes look like Jimmy from the show South Park when I'm leaving the bar.

2. What's a difficult word for you to pronounce?
The word "rural" used to be tricky for me to say but I think I mastered the rolling r's. I don't usually get corrected for pronunciation- that's one area where I think I excel. In other words (no pun intended), I'm sure there are some but I can't think of any at the moment.

3. What is a favorite TV show from your childhood?
Under the Umbrella Tree- I loved Gloria the gopher, Avonlea/Anne of Green Gables, Mr. Rodgers, Mama's Family, Salute Your Shorts, Clairssa Explains It All, Full House, Kids Incorporated, Are You Afraid of the Dark?, The Mickey Mouse Club, The Munsters, The Brady Bunch, Supermarket Sweep, Doubledare, Saved by the Bell... I have so many. I miss the old Disney Channel, Nickelodeon and Nick at Night classics.

4. What are your virtues and vices?
If I'm sticking to the Catholicism set- I'm kind and patient. But on a broader scale, I'm very compassionate, loving, caring and considerate. My vices (under Dante's guidelines) include vanity (I love beauty products), sloth (I'm lazy) and gluttony (I love too much pizza and beer).

5. What's more important: love, fame, power, or money?
110% LOVE! Fame would be interesting for a bit but it doesn't interest me much. I have no desire to be in power of anyone's life other than my own. Money is great but it can't make you truly happy.

6. If you could live in any era/time period, when would it be and why?
I really appreciate the time in which I am currently living (and my location in the world). Not too long ago, I wouldn't have the sames rights that I do, today (in America, atleast). A psychic once told me I was British royalty during the victorian era- I loved hearing that. I connect with the history, architecture and fashions of that period of time. The roaring 20s also seemed like a fun decade. I am fascinated by the distant future- when we are capable of traveling to different galaxies and our technology is far more advanced.

7. If you had to redo your entire wardrobe with 2 stores, what would they be and why?
Nordstrom & Forever 21. Forever is my favorite store bc it's current and affordable. I like to mix classic staples like jeans, shoes and bags (Nordstrom) with trendy blouses or other pieces from Forever 21. Blending high and low is an art form, lol. It's fun for me. I was tempted to say the thrift store but I prefer those for random treasures or vintage pieces.

8. Can you recall what you were doing a year ago on this day?
Probably still digging out from Snowmageddon 2010. Pittsburgh had more snow than I had ever seen in my life. I was also starting to look for a new job.

9. Do you have reoccurring dreams? If so, explain?
I may dream of the same people from my past who are on my mind but I don't have any particular dreams that play out the exact same. I sometimes dream that I have a big event but not anything prepared or the things I need. I love to interpret dreams- there is a lot of psychology involved. I'm a pretty good dream decoder if you're ever looking for someone to explain what yours may indicate.

10. What's your horoscope?
Sun: Aquarius (I'm quadruple Aquarian)
Moon: Scorpio
Rising: Cancer
I am fascinated by this ancient study of the stars.


11. What does your dream bedroom look like?
Shabby chic! Antique furniture. Floral bedspread. Four post, canopy bed. Elegant chandelier. Lots of candles and bookshelves. Wall-mounted flat screen TV. Fireplace. Picture window with seat. Master bathroom/closet off to the side. French/Cottage style. Pinks, lavenders, mint greens, creams, whites, golds.

12. What position do you sleep in?
Fetal- curled-up, on my side. I wish I could sleep on my back because it's supposedly better for breathing and causes far less wrinkles. I sort of need to grip or hold on to something to fall asleep- teddy bear, pillow, etc.

13. Who is your favorite vampire of all time?
It's a toss-up between Brad Pitt's Louis from Interview with the Vampire (I loved his complexity) or Alexander Skarsgard's Eric Northman on HBO's True Blood (his sexuality and humor get me going).

14. What are you currently wearing on your feet?
A Hello Kitty blanket- my slippers are somewhere around the house.

15. Do you have neat handwriting? Show us!
Yes! In grade school, I used to teach the other kids techniques at recess. Over time, my handwriting has slightly gone down hill because I type so often and don't write nearly as much. But it's still pretty good when I want it to be. Everyone in my family has nice handwriting. My mom and dad write almost identically which I find to be odd. I have some images of my handwriting saved on my old computer but nothing on here. My cell is broken- otherwise, I'd definitely share.
