Q1. If you blog anonymously, are you happy doing this? If you aren't anonymous, do you wish you started out anonymously so that you could be anonymous now?
I don't blog anonymously, at least not really. I choose to not purposefully share my last name and location, but otherwise, my details are out there. I've never really wanted to be anonymous...I'm fine with people finding my blog through various outlets (scrapping, my ward, BlogHer, etc) and have made many friends that way. I know that wouldn't have been possible if I had a private blog. This is definitely a personal decision, and I am comfortable with my current stand.
Q2. Describe an incident that shows your inner stubborn side.
Totally stubborn in my refusal to join FaceBook. Do I think it would be fun? Sure. Do I think I'd reconnect with those long lost? Definitely. Will I join? Heck to the No.
Q3. What do you really see when you look at yourself in the mirror?
Oh gee, lots of things. I see wrinkles, but a happy person who has earned every laugh line. (cheesy!!) I see cellulite but I also know that I have worked very hard to slim down from my prior 200lb frame and am very happy with my current look. I see a maturing woman who finally knows what she wants to be when she grows up. :)
Q4. What is your favorite summer cold drink?
Diet Strawberry Limeade from Sonic.
Q5. When you take time for yourself, what do you do?
Right now? Study! Beyond that, read. Ideal? Reading in the bathtub with a bowl of peanut butter M&Ms at my disposal.
Q6. Is there something you still want to accomplish in your life?
Finish Nursing school in 2 years! Serve a mission with my honey when we are old and retired. Raise happy kids, have grandkids.
Q7. When you attended school, were you the class clown, the class overachiever, the shy person, or always ditching?
Definitely not the clown and I never ditched. But I was shy and I did do my best to get the best possible grades I could. It was really my only thing...I wasn't into sports and I grew up in a teeny tiny town where sports were really the only Thing To Do. That and get drunk after the sports games, which of course I refrained from as well. But yes, I was totally shy, but comfortable with my very small group of friends.
Q8. If you close your eyes and want to visualize a very poignant moment in your life, what would you see?
First of all, Merriam-Webster has several definitions of 'poignant'. Yes, I had to look it up.
Q9. Is it easy for you to share your true self in your blog, or are you more comfortable writing posts about other people or events?
I'm pretty comfortable about writing about myself online. I'm not perfect and I'm just as likely to write about my failures as I am the successes. Yet, ask me to talk about those things in person, I'm likely to shut down and lose my words.
