I have been blogging over here for like... 3 months? And I have gotten numerous emails asking for me to write more about myself because apparently, lots of people are fascinated by me.*
So I found this cool "Story of My Life in 10 Simple Questions" that a lot of the other cool and hip bloggers seemed to be doing and I thought, "Why not? I'm cool. I'm hip." So here goes:
1. If you could do one thing differently in your life, what would it be?
Can I be annoying and say nothing? I can? Ok- so nothing. I really think that everything happens for a reason and I have seen that play out several times throughout my life. When I think things aren't working out, something amazing comes out of it. Case in point: when I was frustrated because I had planned to move abroad and was waiting for my passport to arrive so I could get the H outta town, I ended up meeting the love of my life. Things happen for a reason so when things go "wrong", I have to trust that something better is coming around soon. Easier said than done, of course, but I do believe it.
2. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
In 5 years it will be 2018. In addition to my sincere hope that we have flying cars, I hope to be a homeowner. I will have graduated from grad school and be in my 3rd year of working as a social worker. I hope I make above $40,000 and have some savings in my IRA. I will be 29 so I hope I have already started using my night creams and wrinkle removers. I hope I am cured of my Lyme. And maybe, I will have a little kid in tow. I hope in 5 years I have a baby actually. And I hope it's in wedlock so I guess I will be married in 5 years (come on Pedro.... where my ring at?)
3. Do you honestly want kids?
For sure. I have so much knowledge to impart on the world and why not start with a little infant who literally has to listen to me for 18 years? And I know with Pedro's caramel skin and my luscious Jew mane, we will make either a gorgeous mocha baby or this:
I'm hoping for the former.
4. What has been the best moment of your life so far?
Meeting this guy:
Cheesy, I know. But I don't know where I would be without him. He's my rock. He's the messiest person I know and he has a questionable jalapeno addiction, but I guess I'll keep him.
5. What is your life theme song?
No reason. Just because.
6. What is one thing you have yet to accomplish that you want to do before you die?
I would like to do some athletic-y just to prove I can. Like run a 5k in under one hour. That would be enough to satisfy me. Otherwise I want to travel the world with Pedro and just explore. Maybe find a mummy or some gold nuggets along the way. That would be fun, too.
7. If you could do anything you wanted right in this very moment (no consequences, no fear, etc), what would it be?
Is it bad that I would rob a bank? Just to do it... And I am assuming no consequences means I get to keep the money too? I feel like I am totally misinterpreting this question and in reality, it is a very deep question that I am far too shallow to comprehend.
8. If you could choose one thing to be known for, what would it be?
I would love to be known for how compassionate and giving I am. I would want to be remembered as a helper and a giver. I would also like to be known as the best couponer that ever lived- but I am working on that one.
9. What has been the most challenging moment in your life?
It has actually been this past month. I have been struggling a lot with this diagnosis and the awful reactions from the medicines. Every day has been a bit of a struggle and there have been some pretty low lows. I have probably cried every day this month and luckily I have such an amazing support team there to wipe my tears. I have such a long journey ahead but I have the best cheerleaders in the world.
10. Summarize yourself in one word.
Brave. I don't feel brave every day but it is something I am striving for.
*In the interest of full disclosure, I feel I must admit that I actually have not received any emails requesting that I write for about myself, but I have an inkling that a lot of people are interested.... Right? You're interested?
