The Blonde Behind The Blog: What If and Giveaway Winners!

October 17, 2014

[Every "About" post requires a "Ana Steele waiting for Mr. Grey type of selfie #AmIRite]

If you could meet anyone, who would it be?
Marilyn Monroe

If you change one thing about your life what would it be?
I would like to change the way I feel about life. I have been struggling a lot to get back to the "normal" me. I am closer than I was yesterday, but I am still struggling.

If you could change one thing about the world what would it be?
I hate to say this without sounding cliche, but I want the world to be peaceful; especially with all of the beheadings and killings "in the name of religion" that have been going on. It makes me sick.

If you could eliminate one of your human needs which would you get rid of?
I would have to say caring about how I looked. I do not mean this health and fitness wise, but the way of hair, makeup, and fashion. I love it, but at times it gets expensive and tiring.

If you could change one thing about your physical appearance what would it be?
I would have my last 30 pounds off. Other than that, I love everything about me, even my imperfections.

If you could change one of your personality traits which would you choose?
This trait makes me, so I don't know how I could be without, but I am so energetic, loud, and outgoing sometimes that I am like "too much", ha. I am a shot of whiskey when all you want is a strawberry daiquiri.

If you could change one law in your country, which would you change?
It would be the law that if you are commenting on political and religious forums, posts, etc. online, you could NOT be anonymous. I'm sorry but the absolute arrogance, ignorance, and closed mindedness I read is infuriating. Plus, people tend to have "bigger balls" when they can remain unknown. I'm sure that would change in a second if that were not the case ;-)

If you could choose anyone, who would you pick as your mentor?
Maya Angelou 

If you could know the answer to any question, besides “What is the meaning of life?”, what would it be? 
What happens to us after we die. Yes I know, the answer is found in our faith and what have you, but I am talking about solid, irrefutable scientific science. 

If you could be any fictional character, who would you choose?
Sookie Stackhouse! Or perhaps Ana Steele, ha.

Which celebrity do you get mistaken for?
Christina Aguilera or Christina Applegate 

What do you want to be when you grow up?
Blogger/Writer... I am halfway there, at least. I would also love to be a Forensic Psychologist. If I am ever able to afford it and dedicate the time, I am going back to school to finish my psychology degree and move on to a PhD. 

What would you name the autobiography of your life?
The Trials and Tribulations of a Perpetual Dreamer... ha. I don't know.

Have you ever had something happen to you that you thought was bad but it turned out to be for the best?
When a job offer I got fell through 2 days before I was to start, and I had resigned from my then current job. I thought I was done. I was left with no job and no unemployment, but I quickly hit the ground running applying for others, and a week and a half later I had a new job that paid a lot more and offered full benefits and 401K. My 1-year anniversary is quickly approaching and I can say this job has been the most rewarding, but exhausting thing I have ever done!

What did you do growing up that got you into trouble?
Disappear without my parents not knowing where I was. I would turn my cellphone, off. That time the cops were out looking for me ended that though. Ha!

At what age did you become an adult?
I grew up fast but I would have to say living on my own, paying my rent, utilities, and living almost 3 hours away from my family when I turned 20 really made me feel like an adult.

  1. I love posts like this, it's great to get to know the blogger a bit better. Love the selfie, looks very book coverish!

  3. I love these posts! It's great to get to know you better!

    And good job being halfway to your goal of writing! I actually have a post on this topic planned in the next couple of weeks!

  5. Love your answers. Marilyn would be on my list too. Whisky is not a bad thing! ;)

  6. I love this one! I did not expect to see Sookie Stackhouse on here. She is pretty amazing tho. Marilyn would def be on my list and I understand the whiskey thing. I have been in scenarios where I was wound up to a 10 where everyone else was like a 6 and had to reel it in a bit. Sometimes it happens but as long as you recognize it you can adjust to your surroundings when needed. Or everyone else can rise to the whiskey level! That sounds way more fun.
