While sipping on a nice hot cup of blueberry cinnamon tea and scrolling through blog posts, I came across these questions originally posted by The Perks of being Different . So I thought I’d answer them. Enjoy 🤓
What scares you?
Anxiety…mainly because I never actually know how intense an attack might get. While I pretty much know what triggers my anxiety and how to even get ahead of an attack sometimes, anxiety is just one monster that has a mind of own.
If you could guarantee living until you’re 100 years old, would you?
No 😜 I’m shooting for a solid 87 years of life. I know that may sound odd, but I’ll be honest with you, when you’re born with a rare disorder you grow up twice as fast. You’re 10 going on 25. I was signing a DNR for my medical file at the age of 16. There are moments where I feel like I’ve lived forever, yet I’m still a young whipersnapper lol.
What would your dream vacation be like?
My dream vacation would be to tour Germany, Norway and Ireland as I’m an adorable mix of German, Norwegian and Irish. I’d also love to visit Australia for a couple of months.
What’s your morning routine?
First things first, get up and pee, that’s a must lol. Then stand in front of the Keurig as it makes my coffee. Take a sip and then make breakfast. After that it’s shower, get dressed, hair & makeup then take a deep breath before taking on the day.
What is your biggest motivation?
At the moment…money.
What is your favorite time of day and why?
The night is my favorite time. Even though this darn insomnia and these crazy dreams steal my slumber, there’s just something so calming about that black midnight sky studded with stars and the soft ambient sounds that only sneak out at night.
When do you write most and why? (day of week, time of day, etc.)
I feel most inspired at night. Guess that’s what happens when you’ve been a night owl your whole life.
What time do you usually go to bed ?
I usually head towards bed around 11pm. After washing my face, brushing my teeth and taking my vitamin, I snuggle under the covers. Now as far as when I actually fall asleep, that’s pretty much a crapshoot.
Are you subscribed to something which seems like a waste of money?
Ummm, probably Hulu. I don’t watch much on there however I got a great bundle deal with Spotify which I use every day so…I keep it.
Are you afraid to speak in front of a group of people?
Yes, terribly. That is probably the biggest trigger that sets off my anxiety. There is a bit of a process I need to go through. I always listen to Lose Yourself by Eminem to get focused.
What food have you been craving the most these days?
I have been craving these short rib empanadas from one of my favorite restaurants, Lunas. They are soooooooooo tasty. 😋
Have you ever gone a day without talking?
I have, but usually because I was at a concert the night before and the next morning my voice is shot lol.
What do you consider your biggest talent?
Making others turn their frowns upside down 😉 and I’ve been told that I’m pretty good at writing.
