I don’t know what it was about this week, but it left me feeling all sorts of overwhelmed — I even have the kink in my neck/shoulder to prove it! Ow. But I’m currently sitting here in my fuzzy pink socks with a bowl of ice cream in my lap and it just so happens to be Friday (it’s actually Thursday night, but let’s pretend I’m not writing this ahead of time), so things are starting to look up.
I was originally planning on sharing a recipe with you guys today, but because the weather decided to be uncooperative yesterday, the pictures I took didn’t come out quite the way I’d wanted them to so I’ll have to push that over to next week and do what I always do when post ideas fall through — turn to a survey/tag
Would You Rather…
Speak another language or get a higher degree?
I think I’m going to have to go with language on this one.. especially if I could learn it in the natural environment that it’s spoken in (read: Spain and/or Italy). I’m all for higher schooling, but I think there’s a lot to be said about the education that you get outside of a classroom as well, and at the end of the day, I’d rather have that experience.
Have a beautiful singing voice or be a fantastic dancer?
Singing voice. I’m perfectly content with having moves like
Be a CEO of a huge company or run your own small business?
Own a small business… which is a dream that’s quickly becoming a reality 😀
Fly like a bird or teleport?
Teleport…. always, always, always. As awesome as it would feel to fly, think about how much more awesome it would be blink and be somewhere else. I’d be able to visit all my best Blends, save a tonne of money on airfare/accommodations (since I wouldn’t have to take planes and I could teleport back to my own room for the night), and teleport to different countries for all my meals. France for breakfast, Spain for lunch, and Italy for dinner? Please and thank you.
Eat only sweet food or only salty food for the rest of your life?
This one’s a no-brainer — sweet. Life without sugar gives me the sads.
Do yoga or lift weights?
I think yoga. As much as I enjoy (and miss) lifting, I find that the relaxation aspect of yoga helps me a lot more than the endorphins alone that I get from lifting.
Be a SUPER fast runner be SUPER strong?
Super fast. If I were super strong, I’d be terrified of literally crushing someone when I tried to hug them.
Have 8 kids or no kids?
No kids. Don’t get me wrong — I do want kids — but definitely not 8 of them. I’d lose my mind.
Have a small, older home with character or design a big brand new home?
A small older home with character. This is something I’ve noticed since I started accompanying my parents on their house-hunting excursions. As nice as some of the newer homes can be, I find they usually feel a little cold and uninviting… There’s just something about older homes that makes them so much more cozy and homey.
Watch the Today Show or Good Morning America?
Neither? Mostly because I don’t really care much for TV.
Watch only sports or watch only BRAVO?
See above ^^ Although for this one I’m leaning more towards Bravo since I can’t for the life of me watch sports — I’d rather be doing them.
Cook a romantic dinner at home or go to the nicest restaurant in town?
Romantic dinner at home. I haven’t been huge fan of eating out ever since that one time where I ended up in the ER as a result of a slight “oversight” of the cook. I trust no one.
Drink beer or wine?
Wine. And speaking of which, a glass would go great with my ice cream… which is sadly almost all gone 😥
Eat cookies or eat cake?
Cookies… which would also have gone great with my ice cream.
Have only brothers or have only sisters?
Only brothers. I feel like I would have had more in common with them growing up… maybe because most of my friends growing up were guys.
Go to Africa or Asia?
Africa. An African safari is very much on my travel bucket list.
Eat sweet potato fries or regular fries?
Regular fries. I like sweet potatoes on occasion, but my heart will always belong to the white potato.
Own an SUV or a sports car?
A sports car. This girl has a serious need for speed.
Have a personal chef or a personal trainer?
Oh.my.gosh a chef — that would be a dream come true. I don’t care much for following a certain fitness routine or trying to achieve a certain look, but not having to cook my meals? Bliss.
Sleep for 9 hours every night but no coffee, or sleep for 6 hours a night and have coffee?
6 hours and coffee… which is basically how I function now. I love my hug in a mug too much to give it up, and I find that I actually do just fine on 6 hours of sleep — it’s how my body seems to naturally operate. Besides… those extra 3 hours are invaluable.
Read a book or watch a movie?
Going by the fact that I don’t even know if my TV still works since I can’t remember the last time I turned it on, and that I own so many books that I think I’ll need to look into a library for my home, I think I’ll go with “read a book” for this one.
Live on the east coast or west coast?
West coast. Going east just feels strange.
Have your toenails painted or your fingernails painted?
Toes. I’ll often opt out of painting my fingernails just because I hate it when they start chipping (which is basically instantly), but my toes just feel naked without any colour on them.
Go to the beach or the mountains?
Mountains will forever own my heart. There’s nowhere I feel more at home.
I’d love it if you picked a few and gave me your answers! Happy Friday! 😀
