Survey Says: Ideas

Where/When I get the best ideas: In the shower or on a walk by myself in the park.

The best idea I ever had: Facebook. I didn't call it Facebook but the idea was there. 1999-ish.

The worst idea I ever had: If you were to ask my bank account, probably my major in college but I'm good with my choice and so thrilled with where I went to school. There really wouldn't have been anything else I was more interested in studying.

An idea that others didn't understand: People look at me like I'm crazy when I tell them I occasionally do water fasts. I suppose it sounds pretty extreme (which it can be) but it's very beneficial when done properly.

An idea that someone stole from me: I wrote this frivolous little poem called "A Pittsburgh Girl." I only posted it on a few of my close friends Facebook walls back in '05. It then spread all around the world in e-mails, message boards, blogs, social media, etc. I obviously never got credit for it. I've seen it slightly rewritten so many times or with other people's names attached to it. I wrote it almost jokingly and in just a couple of minutes. Crazy that it became so popular. My friends don't even believe me when I tell them I wrote it and I'm an extremely honest person. My sister is the only one that knows it was me because she watched me write it.

An idea I had when I was little: I thought the world was literally black and white before color film was invented.

An idea I had today: This little survey. Of course, I was in the shower... thinking of all the previous ideas I've had and want to follow through with.

An idea I'll probably have tomorrow: The snooze button is always a good idea.

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!
