So, here are Carrie’s questions for me!

1) one thing that can always make you happy no matter what?

Choosing one single thing is ridiculously hard but I will have to say that no matter how shitty my day has been, a hug from my grandmother instantly makes me happy. It’s like being wrapped in  instant happiness, love, and comfort.

2) favorite season and why?

At this point, I would say anything but winter.  Am I right? It’s really hard for me to choose between fall and summer, but I would say fall. I love the warm but not hot temps, the colors, SCARF WEATHER, pumpkin everything, thanksgiving, pumpkin carving, candy corn and corn mazes.

 

3) if you could eat any meal from any restaurant regardless of price or proximity in the world to you what would it be?

Nutella crepes & a fancy latte in Paris. Preferably with a clear view of the Eiffel Tower. I’m no fancy foodie, so crepes will do just fine!

4) 3 of the biggest influences in your life?

The person who influences me most in my life is most definitely my grandmother. I consider myself so blessed to have this amazing woman in my life. She is my absolute favorite person in the world, the strongest, kindest, most selfless person I know who is always willing to share her wisdom with me. She’s been through more in her life than I can even imagine, and she keeps me going with her unconditional love and support.

The second most influential person would have to be my best friend. I cannot imagine life without her. We are so similar in so many ways that it is scary, yet at the same time we are so different, yet we support and love each other despite those differences. I feel most comfortable around her, and when I haven’t seen her in more than three days, I feel like a piece of me is missing. She’s also one of the few people I feel comfortable sitting in complete silence with. We have supported each other through extremely tough times, and I would not be where I am today without her. I feel like the luckiest person in the world to consider her my best friend. The below photo is from Grade 12 Prom, 2010. We look like babies! It’s crazy to think how far we have come in 4 years.

Who I consider to be the third greatest influence in my life may sound bizarre or cliche to some people, but I’d have to say Amy Poehler. Maybe it’s weird to consider someone you have never met as an influencing factor in your life, but I find myself constantly inspired by everything she does. I’ve learned a lot about strong women, feminism, hard work, and comedy from watching/reading interviews, and following her work  and it has helped me solidify my views/values on important social conflicts. I now openly express my views as a feminist who believes in strong women and equality, whereas before I was nervous about being judged for labelling myself a ‘feminist’, as I was previously led to believe it was a negative thing. I believe everyone should have a role model that they can look up to, one that inspires them to do more, be better, and not be ashamed of what they believe in! Shit got serious for a minute there, my apologies! 🙂

 

5) something you always have to do every night before you can go to bed?

I have to spend atleast ten minutes reading before bed or it takes me forever to fall asleep. I spend a lot of time during the day staring at screens, and we’ve all read a million articles about how screens right before bed can disrupt sleep. It’s true, I haven’t to put away my phone before bed or it is nearly impossible for me to fall asleep!

6) next place on your list to travel to?

Well, I’m going to VEGAS in March. After that, NYC is on my list. If you know me, you know that visiting NYC is one of my biggest dreams, and am I beyond excited to finally go there. I’m hoping that everything will fall into place and I will be able to visit this fall!

7) favorite thing about were you live right now?

My backyard. I love love love looking into my backyard and seeing my ponies, and the woods. I love the hills, the trees, and even I will admit it looks very pretty covered in snow. I do love cities, but I’ve always been an outdoorsy person, so I am happiest when I am surrounded my nature.

8) what you’re thankful for right this minute?

My health. My job. All the opportunities I have been granted so far. The endless support from my family & friends. My animals. The Internet, for allowing me to connect with people whom I otherwise would never have been able to. My education. I could go on forever. I think it is extremely important to keep in kind how much we have been blessed with in life. We all have bad days,weeks, even months sometimes, but in the end, we have SO much to be thankful for. Gotta have some perspective, right?!

apparently I am feeling rather nostalgic about prom today? I love these people. 

9) where do you picture your life 5 years from now?

Questions like these give me anxiety. Bad. I’ve never been one of those people with a 5,10,20 year life plan. I’ll be 26 in five years, and my automatic response would be to say I’d be just graduating from grad school for Physiotherapy, and working at a hospital, most likely in my hometown. While that is the path I am currently on, God only knows where I will actually end up. All I can hope for is that I am healthy, happy, and doing something I love! The rest is just details.

10) something you want to be remembered for?

I would like to be remembered as the person who encouraged and supported her friends no matter what. I’d like to be remembered for my laugh, for the fact that I always will find a way to be sarcastically funny, and I always will hug you,whether you like it or not.

Alright, the rules of this are you that you tag 10 other bloggers to complete questions you have asked. I’m going to pull the old “anyone who wants to do it” thing!  My questions for you are :

1) What is your favorite time of day, and why?

2) What song/artist never fails to cheer you up when you listen to it/them?

3) If you could do any job for one week, money/education not being a factor, what would you choose?

4) If you could have a conversation over coffee with anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would you choose and why?

5)  What inspires you the most? Person/place/thing, what gives you life?

6) Describe your idea of a perfect day.

7) If you had one piece of advice for your younger self, what would it be?

8) If you could guest star on one television show, what would it be and what role would you play?

9) What are you currently reading? Album you can’t stop listening to? Last movie you watched? TV show you are binge watching?

10) What do you do first thing in the morning? First thought that usually pops into your head ?

  1. I’m in the process of filling this out for one day this week 🙂 Love these responses! I’m with you on the bedtime thing. I have to read and put away ALL technology in order to sleep.

  2. I’m going to answer these, just not tonight haha. I ALWAYS read before bed. That or I play candy crush. Both make me sleepy which is what I need lol. Apparently it’s frowned upon to drink wine to help you sleep 😛 I think it’s perfectly acceptable.
    I love that you want to stay in your hometown! You don’t find that often. I can’t wait to be getting away from mine. I move to a new city in about a month 😀 My home will always be my home but it’s just not doing enough for my life right now. I need something new. I also love the stuff about your grandma. My grandma is my best friend in the entire world. They are seriously the best!

    • Haha I had to delete the candy crush app from my phone, for my health & my sanity! Can’t wait to hear about your adventures in a new city! I definitely don’t think I will live in my hometown forever, but for now it’s giving me what I need 🙂 thanks so much for commenting!!

  3. Hey girl! Just found your blog thanks to Carrie! Love your responses to these, especially the people who are most inspiring and what you’re thankful for. It sounds like you have some pretty special people in your life, and you appreciate the little things that so many take for granted. And my favorite time of day is early morning…I love being awake and going for a run while the world is waking up. Everything looks peaceful and beautiful, and you can just sense the promise of the fresh start of a new day in the air 🙂

  4. I really dislike the whole where do you see yourself in 5, 10, etc years question. It makes me nervous too! Props to you for attempting to answer it. I’d probably have just said nope, not gonna answer it.
    I love seeing how people answer the question about eating anything/where in the world. I’d love to have pizza with red wine in Italy.

    • Haha glad your with me on those types of questions! Italian pizza was another one I considered, I’m glad you answered that one because you’re the most food savvy blog I read! 🙂

  5. i LOVE hearing all your answers to my questions!!! i purposely made it so they weren’t easy peasy lemon squeezy because i want to know the real stuff, not the fluffy on the top stuff everyone sees. basically i’m real real real nosey! haha i kid i kid. the more i get to know you the more super of a girl i think you are. don’t ever change 🙂

    • Hahaha you picked really good questions, I must say! I’m actually the nosiest ( is that a word? ) person alive soooooo don’t even apologize!! Thank you for tagging me my love! 🙂
