Here’s 11 random facts about me
*I’m left handed but write with my right. Why? Because I went to a private school with nuns and they forced me to write with my right. I tried writing with my left hand again but it’s pretty hard.
*Even though I’m left handed, I can throw and catch a ball with both hands.
*I enjoy cooking but I hate cleaning up afterwards. I wish I had more time to do it but I’m usually running around with my 9 year old and I’m tired when I get out of work.
*My favorite beer is Bud Light.
*I love to read. Reading allows you to learn new things everyday.
*When I was a freelance writer, I got to interview several bands and comedians. Some included Transiberian Orchestra, Godsmack, Larry the Cable Guy, Breaking Benjamin, Queensryche, Chicano rappers Lil’ Rob, Brown Boy,DEVO, etc.
*The funnest class I ever took in my life was wine tasting. All we did was eat delicious food and drink wine in the class. Lol.
* I still like talking on the phone, even though I don’t do it as much.
*Me and my mom both have tragic birthdays. My birthday is 9/11 and hers is November 22, the day John F. Kennedy was assassinated.
*I’m a big fan of the History Channel, especially of the show Pawn Stars.
*I’m a picky eater but I still love to eat!
What matters most to you?
My health, family, true friends.
How much do you enjoy what you do for a living?
I don’t really enjoy it. I would rather be writing about fun stuff like music and concerts, etc. It’s just a job I have to keep because I haven’t found another one yet. I get to write at my job but not the way I want to.
What would be the hardest thing (physical) for you to give up?
Right now, my struggle is giving up sweets and soda. I’m trying to do it because I want to lose a few pounds.
When is the last time you’ve gone outside of your comfort zone?
Maybe about a month ago. I don’t like it but I know it’s necessary.
What painful situation are you now most grateful for?
An ex fiance breaking up with me.
What are you so afraid of?
Being stuck at a dead end job forever. I’m working on it though ;).
If you could meet one person from any period in history (it may even be fictional), who would it be? Jim Morrison
What’s your favorite quote?
“This world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place. It will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me or nobody is going to hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard you’re hit, it is about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward, how much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!”
How and where do you like to spend your holiday?
Relaxing in nice, sunny weather. I would say going to Orlando.
What is your favorite thing about blogging?
Getting back into writing and meeting bloggers from all over the world. I’ve also enjoyed interviewing fellow bloggers and others.
