Herro der! (read: hello there) Happy Tuesday!
Tuesdays are a good day for surveys. Why? Mostly because Mondays tend to be pretty manic and, by the end of the day, I need specific questions laid out in front of me to direct my thoughts in some coherent way. I’ve been seeing this survey floating around the blog world lately and figured I’d join in on the fun. So may I present you with: The ABCs of Me…
A. Attached or Single? Mum’s still the word on this one for now 🙂
B. Best Friend? Coffee. It really brings out the best in me.
C. Cake or pie? Definitely cake – especially if we’re talking Black Forest. Truth be told, I don’t really like pie… The cream ones are still tolerable, but if we’re talking things like apple or pumpkin? Not so much.
D. Day of choice? I honestly don’t have one. I’ve had crappy Saturdays and amazing Mondays… and vice versa. Every day has the potential to be good or bad, and since I wake up ridiculously early regardless of what day it is, it’s really all the same to me. Back when I was a kid, it was definitely Saturdays though. Eating cereal and watching cartoons in my pyjamas? Bliss.
E. Essential Item? Contact solution… or I suppose if we want to get down to the bare essentials, glasses. My vision is pretty bad (like -4.5 and -5.0) so without my glasses/contacts, I’m pretty much useless.
F. Favorite color? Black. I like other colors, but no matter how often I try to add more color into my life, I always gravitate back to black. And I know black isn’t technically a color, but let’s not get caught up in details.
G. Gummy bears or worms? Bears, simply because they’re easier to pop into your mouth and you don’t have to worry about biting them into smaller pieces.
H. Home town? Edmonton, Alberta. Born and raised.
I. Favorite Indulgence? Beauty products. I think it’s probably pretty obvious by now that I’m a complete beauty junkie. Makeup, hair products, perfumes, creams… I’d go as far as to say that I prefer shopping for and buying these things more than food.
J. January or July? I feel like I should say January because of my birthday and all, but let’s be honest… no one in their right mind would choose January over July… especially if you live in Canada.
K. Kids? I’d love to have some someday. For now, I have a plant… And I’ve nearly killed him more times than I can count, so let’s hope I do better with little people.
L. Life isn’t complete without? Love, laughter, and chocolate…
M. Marriage date? Awwwwkward…
N. Number of brothers/sisters? Zeer-oh. I’m an only child, and I’m seriously starting to feel like a rare breed – seems like everyone has brothers and sisters but me! I remember loving the fact that I was an only child when I was younger, but now I really wish I had a brother or sister to confide in.
P. Phobias? Needles. There are other things I don’t like (snakes, horror movies, dentists, being in water where I can’t see my feet), but those I can still tolerate… Needles, on the other hand? No way. No.freaking.way. I actually have to drug myself when I need to get blood taken or there’s just no way I can do it.
Q. Quotes? You can check out my Pinterest board if you’d like to see more, but a few favorites are:
R. Reasons to smile? Everything? Honestly, why not smile? Sure, there are plenty of crappy things to deal with, but it’s all about what you choose to focus on. Keep your attention fixed on the negative and, sure, you won’t find many reasons to smile; but they’re always there if you just open your eyes to them.
S. Season of choice? Fall. Even though it’s slightly tarnished by the fact that winter is right around the corner, there’s nothing [else] not to love about fall. Beautiful colors, delicious flavors, fun fashion trends, and that calm and cozy feeling in the air. I only wish that it lasted a little longer…
T. Tag 5 People. Nope. I don’t play favourites.
U. Unknown fact about me? I actually considered trying to become a professional race car driver. I don’t talk about it a lot here on the blog because I have a feeling that not many people in this community share my interest, but… cars [and driving] are another one of my biggest passions. I blame it on the fact that my dad’s in the business and I basically grew up in a garage, but I have a serious love affair going with all things automotive related. I’ve rebuilt engines, I’ve raced on and off the strip, and there’s almost nothing I find more therapeutic than going for a cruise late at night. So yup… cars – I like them.
V. Vegetable? Corn. Whether it’s fresh, frozen, grilled, popped, or in candy/cereal/grain/chip form, corn is pretty much amazing no matter which way you choose to eat it.
W. Worst habit? Oh geez, where do I even start? I guess I’ll go with the fact that I tend to put everything off until the last possible minute; aka: I procrastinate like crazy. This was a big problem when I was still in school because I’d put off essays until the day before they were due and end up writing them until 3 in the morning, but even now, I tend to procrastinate until I really can’t get away with it anymore… and my bad habits are only reinforced by the fact that the outcome is always positive.
X. Xray or Ultrasound? Does anyone honestly have an opinion on this? The only way I could ever see someone preferring one over the other is if they were pregnant and able to see their baby. Otherwise, both probably mean something is wrong so it’s like choosing between shi… two undesirable things.
Y. Your favorite food? Almond butter. Not only is it amazing on its own, but it makes everything you put it on taste 100x better. I can’t even tell you how many kitchen failures I’ve saved by smothering the disastrous results with almond butter. This stuff can do no wrong.
Z. Zodiac sign? Capricorn. I don’t really pay much attention to horoscopes or Zodiacs, but I have to admit that most of these are spot on…
