Three Things About Me
- I have an unhealthy obsession for lotions. Bath and Body Works, to be specific. And candles. Anything with a lovely scent. Black Cherry Merlot? *dies*
- The older I get, the less I enjoy sweets. Growing up, “no dessert” was the line that made me drop everything and do what I was told. As a teenager, I used to keep a tube of icing in my purse for a quick fix. But as of the last few years? I’ll sooner leave it than have something with sugar in it. I’ve made plenty of cakes and cookies and desserts that have gone untouched by me.
…Except for pastries.
Now you know my weakness.
- I was dead set on being an architect, but my fear of math and engineering prevented me from pursuing a career there. Instead, I majored in paralegal until life changes took me out of college. And now, all I want to be is a librarian.
The Questions I Have to Answer
- What’s the book you always wanted to read (or should have read) when you were younger but couldn’t because you never found it/it didn’t exist? Like, what would you have felt truly represented you?
It’s an odd thing, because it seems that I seem to read books at the most pertinent times in my life. Les Miserables initially comes to mind because it probably had the biggest impact in my life. I was going through a trial in my life that did require forgiveness on my part, and if you know the story, you know how large of an impact that story can have. Other similar books that pertained to my life while reading it would include Brothers Karamazov, Great Expectations, and The Red and the Black.
- Are you good with directions? (I’m not.)
Absolutely. I have an internal compass in my mind, and I’ve no need for a GPS. I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve been lost. Once in a city I’ve never been to (Baltimore, yikes), and the other times at night attempting to skirt traffic in North Jersey.
- Starbucks, yes or no? Explain why.
Ehhh, I used to be at Starbucks all the time in my youth about 10-15 years ago, but then it became “the spot” and its appeal left me. On average, I go to Starbucks about once a year.
- What are you the most hopeful about for 2017?
Improvement in my writing.
- Weird question: Do you have a favorite airport? (Mine’s SeaTac.)
EWR (Newark). Probably because it’s my airport to home. My least favorite would be SAT (San Antonio) because that is where my seven weeks of boot camp hell commenced.
You don’t have to make a blog post, unless you want to of course. You’re welcome to just answer in the comments. In fact, anyone can put in their answers in the comments if desired! 😀
…And Their Questions
- Weird question: Are you afraid of the dark?
- What is your favorite genre to write? Or, what genre do you wish you could write?
- What are your thoughts on vampires? As in, do you find them corny, overdone, classic, entertaining, or something else?
- Your favorite movie, along with your favorite actor/actress.
- The last book you read.
Lastly, My Best Post
But does that mean stat-wise, or according to me? I guess both would cover all the bases:
- Stat-wise: 9 Reasons Why I Don’t Use Scrivener
- Personally: None. Okay, well I really really feel for Using Modern Colloquialisms in the Fantasy Genre
