The Pinterest Q&A: Part One

I saw these questions posted on Pinterest. I thought it would be good to have the list saved for future road trips or get-togethers with friends and family. Warning: It's a bit long-winded. I actually made the questions much shorter but it's still lengthy. I really love asking people questions and getting to know them. I don't expect everyone or anyone at all to be particularly interested in my answers but here they are...

1. List 10 random facts about yourself.

  • I haven't touched my hair- never colored, highlighted, permed, or dyed, etc.
  • I'm close to blind without my contacts. I have the type you can sleep in because I hate waking up and not being able to see what's in front of my face.
  • I'm left-handed but I can use my right hand as well for a lot of things.
  • I was born on a Saturday afternoon in the middle of winter. 2/1/86 4:01 pm.
  • I'm incapable of achieving a tan. Not at all. Not ever. SPF is my best friend.
  • I like my full name and use it as much as possible.
  • I hate milk. It makes me gag.
  • I love water. I'm always drinking ice water.
  • I went to Catholic school for K-12 and spent all those years wearing a uniform and knee socks.
  • I have an INFJ personality type.

2. Describe 3 legitimate fears you have and explain how they became fears.

  • Bees: They've always scared me because they sting and can fly pretty quickly.
  • Tractor Trailers: I drive a sports car. I watch the news.
  • Losing the people I love: No explanation needed.

3. Describe your relationship with your parents.

I love and respect them tremendously but we don't always see eye to eye on things. I'm not even the black sheep of the family. I'm the ginger goat or something.

4. List 3 things you would tell your 16 year-old self, if you could.

  • Always wear a condom.
  • Find a different date to prom.
  • Work for the D.A. when you get to WVU

5. What are the 5 things that make you most happy right now?

  • Music
  • Alcohol
  • Writing
  • My dog
  • Travel

6. What is the hardest thing you have ever experienced?

Life after college. The past few years have been a confusing and difficult time in my life.

7. What is your dream job, and why?

I want to be a successful author/writer. I love to express myself through thoughts, memories and opinions. I love when other people take something away from the viewpoints that I share- especially laughter. I also would love to be a great wife and mother someday but that's a long ways down the road.

8. What are 5 passions you have?

  • Individuality
  • Writing
  • Learning
  • Experience
  • Expression
9. List 5 people who have influenced you and describe how.

  • My Dad, Ernie: He's the strongest man I know and taught me the importance of taking pride in everything you do, working hard, staying modest, thinking critically and remaining genuine.
  • My Mom, Mary: She taught me the importance of showing appreciation, love, kindness, creativity and patience. She doesn't have an envious bone in her body. Because of her, I enjoy helping others and like to see them succeed.
  • My older sister, Natalie: She's been right next to me since day one. I couldn't imagine this life without her. She's hardworking and cares strongly for her friends and family.
  • My older cousin, Michelle: She's 12 years older than me but one of my best friends. We're traveling this world on the same bizarre wavelength and always understand each other.
  • Pittsburgh: she's my home and I wouldn't be the person I am without having grown up on her beautiful hills. 

10. Describe your most embarrasing moment.

I don't think I really have one moment that truly shines above the others. I can laugh at myself and move on with it.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
I'm living life in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I hold a journalism degree from West Virginia University. I have worked in television news, fashion marketing, PR, and cosmetic sales. My love for writing and sharing with the world my various passions is strong. One of my many ambitions is to be published and continue creating in the fields of digital and print media, literature and film. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, following Pittsburgh sports and traveling as often as possible. Some of my favorite things include beauty, style, architecture, books, tarot and astrology, thrifting and my shih-tzu, Ireland. I’m engaged to the love of my lifetimes and we look forward to starting our next chapter together. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
