11 Random Facts
  1. I didn't watch Disney movies until I was 16 years old. My first film was Aladdin {still my fav}, and I watched it while babysitting.
  2. I took piano lessons for 12 years and competed on a provincial level. 
  3. I hated anything zombies until The Walking Dead came into our family's life a week ago. Now obsessed.
  4. I refused to go swimming past my knees in the Indian Ocean due to my phobia of sharks. Biggest fear.

  6. I grew up in a small country town with a total of four traffic lights and walked around barefoot in the summers.

Questions from Janine

What does the last text you received say?
  • "Night!" From a friend. Sorry nothing interesting.
Look out of your window. Now tell me what you see (even better take a photo to show me).
  • I am currently sitting at my school desk and see a beautiful sunrise and an empty field.

What would your last ever meal on earth be?
  • Pizza. Yep. I could eat pizza forever.
If you had to be locked in a room with a song playing on repeat forever, what song would it be?
  • Oooo, such a good question! This is a tough one, because I {probably like so many} listen to music according to my mood. I love loud, dance music, but I also love chill music. However, staying true to myself, it would probably be a Taylor Swift song. Maybe Long Live?
Would you rather have brains or beauty? And why?
  • Brains. Hands down. Beauty is overrated. Brains last forever and can be used in so many good ways. Beauty fades and is mostly a self-centred thing {I know I'm generalizing}. 
What is your proudest achievement to date?
  • The fact that I made it to my third year of nursing school. Post-secondary education seemed so daunting and long when I first began pondering it. Now I have a year and a half to go.
If you could change just one thing in your life right now instantly, what would it be and why?
  • Ooo, that's a tough one. Especially since we are our own worst critics. I would change my impatience. I want to be more relaxed and low-maintenance in terms of things happening the way I want them to. I'm a bit of a control freak {first-born-child-syndrome}.
What was the last thing you ate?
  • Spaghetti and garlic bread for dinner last night. Speaking of which, I should probably eat breakfast . . .
Comfort or Style?
  • Style. Besides if you do it right, you can have a comfortable style. But ya, I'm a dress and heels girl through and through.
If you could give your 13 year old self one piece of advice, what would it be?
  • Twofold. {A} Going back to my flaw of impatience, I would tell myself that everything will fall into place. {B} Also I would tell myself that I would find my style and personality and I would love it, so don't waste time trying to live up to everyone else's expectations and opinions.
How many pairs of shoes do you own?
  • I had to go count and the final tally is . . . 31!!! Wow, I didn't even know it was that many. That's a lot. Yikes.

Thanks for the link back to my blog. I really enjoyed reading your facts and answers (thanks for doing the photo out of your window, what a beautiful view!)

I can't believe that you first watched Disney at 16 and that you lived in a small country town where you could walk around barefooted, that sounds idyllic.

And get some breakfast eaten ASAP missy!Thanks for doing this with me :)

I cannot believe you didn't watch a disney until you were 16! Where have you been?

I am jealous of your pianoing abilities. I am trying to self learn after having many years of keyboard lessons. Do you still play now?
