13 Questions

One of my favorite YouTube gurus, Ingrid, posted a video on her vlog channel answering these questions. Hers were really interesting and they inspired me to answer on my blog.

1. What do you order at Starbucks?
Nothing! I don't like coffee so I don't go there.

2. What's one thing in your closet that you cannot live without?
My UGGS. I've mentioned in other surveys that they are one of the few types of shoes that don't kill my feet. They are so cozy and usually quite comfortable.

3. What's one thing that most people probably wouldn't know about you?
I'm left-handed. Most people don't notice. I'm pretty open with most things about me.

4. Name one thing that you want to do before you die?
Find true love and hopefully have a family... I think these go hand in hand. I want to marry my soul mate and be a mother.

5. What's one food that you cannot live without?
Pizza. Lucky for me, it's one of these easiest to come by.

6. What quote/phrase do you live your life by?
I don't necessarily live my life by any particular quote but one that has stuck with me for a long time is Eleanor Roosevelt's "The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams." I actually have a wall sign of it hanging in my bedroom-not my ideal place to display it, but it's there.

7. What do you like and dislike about the YT community?
I am fascinated by the world we live in. I enjoy learning about different people and the things that they love. The sharing of information and freedom of expression is what I most admire. The thing I like the least is the negativity. When you put yourself "out there", you always run the risk of being criticized but when people can hide behind their computers, it can sometimes bring out the worst in them.

8. What's your number one most listened to song on iTunes?
I haven't used iTunes since I got my laptop. I still have a gift that I need to use. The song I've listened to the most this year is Radiohead's "Lotus Flower". Of all time? Maybe "Crash Into Me" by Dave Matthews Band or "Wolf Like Me" from TV on the Radio... Who knows? I listen to a lot of music.

9. What kind of style would you define yourself as having?
The vast majority of the time I am in sweats. You would think that I have no knowledge of fashion or any style to speak of. But at my best, my style is a cross between classic (75%) and trendy (25%). Words to describe my stlye include sophisticated, elegant, casual, romantic/feminine, rocker, indie, boho... it depends on my mood, the weather and the occassion.

10. Favorite number?
20. I like the number 2 on its own but I like that 20 is even. It's a mature number but still youthful, lol. 20 was actually one of the best years of my life.

11. Two hobbies?
Shopping- thrifting, finding a good sale, etc. and reading things online. I'm constantly searching about things I'm curious about. I've been told I teach people a lot of things they never knew, haha.

12. Two pet peeves?
When people don't use their turning signal or if they use it too late is one pet peeve. Another would be walking behind someone who is smoking or just being in the presence of cigarette smoke in general.

13. Guilty Pleasure?
Listening to Coast to Coast AM and reading conspiracy web sites/watching YouTube videos. I'm a total nerd. I'm fascinated by all the theories out there on subjects from aliens to 9/11 to 2012.
