What do you like most about you?
Physically, I suppose I’d go with my eyes. I know how to fake a smile with mastery, but I’ve never been able to hide behind my eyes. They keep me in check in a way. I truly believe that they are the portals into our heart, soul and our past.
Characteristically, I would go with my personality. I’ve been told that I have a sweet and humorous personality, so, yeah.
What is the one country/state/city you want to visit this year?
Australia! I’ve always wanted to visit there. And yes, I want to hold a koala. Oh come on, like you don’t have the same life goal 😉
What is the one book you recommend everyone read?
Well, I’m reading (re-reading) The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, so that’s a book I’d recommend to anyone who hasn’t read it.
What is your favorite Disney Movie? And why?
The Nightmare Before Christmas. One, I’m a Tim Burton fan. Two, I resonate with Jack and his journey with finding where he belonged, with finding himself. And three, Jack and Sally are one top notch couple. Sally is always by Jack’s side, no matter what.
What is your favorite Marvel Movie? and Why?
Is it even possible to have just one single favorite marvel movie? Hmm, I guess I’ll go with Iron Man. Tony became part human, part robotic in a way through challenging circumstances. I know what that’s like in a way. He embraces the changes that curve through his life without ever giving up. I aim to do the same. Plus, let’s be real..we all want an Iron Man suit. It’s frickin badass! Forget worrying about traffic. I’d just fly right over it. Plus, Jarvis would be my right hand man, or right hand program. Lol
What would you do for free?
I’d write for free. Even though I have a book, I don’t get paid to blog. Even without a book, I’d still write. I’d also draw, cook and listen to anyone who needed to vent (which I do. Especially with my bro lol) My ears are yours. And my advice, only if wanted.
What three words would your best friend use to describe you?
Oh geez! I don’t know if she should be asked this question 😂 I’m hoping her three words would be: kind, witty and protective. But, her I and are both sarcastic, so I don’t know. 😅
Where would you rather be right now?
By far my favorite question. I’d rather be on a beach laying on the warm sand, listening to the crashing waves and soaking in those Vitamin-D rays. The beach has always been the one place where my monsters (doubts and fears) can’t get to me. It’s the only place that feels like home.
What is your favorite drink?
We all know that I love me a caramel latte. But, I also enjoy an ice cold peach tea or green tea with honey. I drink a V8 energy juice every morning. And yes, I’m a Dr. Pepper addict. I also like those Bai beverages. They’re pretty tasty.
What is your favorite country/state/city that you visited and why?
New York. It’s just so vibrant with life. The culture so diverse and exciting. Plus, I’m a foodie so there’s plenty of restaurants and farmers markets. I love the theater, Broadway!
What inspired you to start a blog?
I’m not the most open person, I need to have a sense of trust in someone in order to be able to actually open up. I have a tendency to keep a lot of things to myself, fear of having my own insecurities used against me. Blogging was a way for me to release my thoughts and begin to calm the traffic in my head. I never expect my blogs to be read, let alone liked or commented on. The whole writing process has kept my darkness at bay. It has aided in calming my cerebral storm.
Anytime I’m notified of a like, comment or follow…I feel as though a tiny piece of myself has been put back together. In the end, if my pain *past or present* helps someone out there feel less alone in their darkness, then ripping my stitches apart from my scars is worth it.
Say what you mean, tell me I’m right and let the sun rain down on me. Give me a sign, I wanna believe… -P!ATD
