Would you ever go skydiving?
Yes, I think it would be a little scary but overall super fun and freeing! I’ve always wanted to fly and skydiving would be as close as I could get!
Would you rather be a peasant or royalty?
Before 2020 I would’ve said royalty, but today I would for sure say a peasant. I definitely don’t want to be in the spotlight.
What is the most memorable event from your childhood?
That’s a tough one, tennis comes to mind right away. I am an avid tennis athlete, and my dream was to be the best professional tennis player in the world until I woke up to the truth of what that would mean. But, family doubles with my brother and my parents were some really good times, we use to play every weekend together when my brother and I were little, and it was always so fun. I would also say our trip to Chicago was the best, we visited so many cool exhibits and museums, the food was fantastic and I still remember it all so vividly.
Do you write in a journal/diary? Why or why not?
I go on and off. I have this black book that I write in from time to time, sometimes I write my posts in there first. But, the writing on my blog is like my journal; all my thoughts just flow out onto the page I’m typing on. I also have a document in Word that is like my diary, sometimes I just type away in there. It really depends on my mood, writing always helps me clear my head and if something is really bothering me, I’ll write or type away and just express how I feel.
What is your idea of the perfect day?
I’m an early bird so, wake up at 7:30 and get a nice hour workout in. Then check my reader, make breakfast and my protein shake, publish a poem or any piece of writing on my blog, read a good book, train on the tennis court for a couple hours, have a nice healthy lunch, go on an adventure of some sort (like a hike, joyride, walk on the beach or find a peaceful place in the woods), connect with my friends including you through the comments 😁, let my mind daydream and listen to some music, cook a nice dinner, write and create some more, wind down with my favorite tv show (Arrow), set my intention for what I want to dream about and then travel to another world (my sleep). 😁
What’s the top thing on your wish list?
To go to Sedona, Arizona!! There have been so many signs from the Universe telling me to go there and the energy in Sedona seems unlike anywhere else. The timing hasn’t been quite right yet but hopefully someday soon I’ll be posting about the magic of my time in Sedona!! 😁
What does your room look like?
My room is my sanctuary and it is so me! I have a lot of inspirational quotes on the walls, above my daybed I have a heart that lights up and across from that I have a sign that lights up that says, believe. I have a beautiful light colored wood dresser and matching desk; my dresser is filled with my shell collection that seems to grow every day! Above my desk is a bulletin board that I’ve filled with my favorite quotes I’ve seen and written myself and the most meaningful things that have been said to me by my family and friends. But my favorite part of my room is my orbit chair, it’s like an open dome if that makes sense! It is grey, so comfortable and I do all of my writing and video-making in it! My desk is literally right next to it but I always opt to work in my orbit chair!! Behind this chair, is my giant bookshelf/trophy case that matches with the dresser and the desk, it holds a lot of family photos, trophies, books, and fun little souvenirs I’ve found or been given.
Pen or pencil?
Pen. I would like to say pencil, but I don’t even know the last time I’ve used a pencil!
Would you ever try going vegan? (if you aren’t already)
I’ve been vegan for 13 years and I’ve never looked back! I don’t remember what meat or dairy tastes like. These days there are so many amazing options for vegans; although, I try not to eat too much of the meat and dairy replacements because I like to stick to whole foods.
Who is the most inspirational person you know personally?
My mom. She taught me how to be strong because she is the strongest person I’ve ever met, she taught me how to be fearless, she taught me how to love myself which, is the greatest gift I think you can be given, she taught me how to live what I know and she taught me to believe in myself. She inspires me every single day and has been the best role model to me since the day I was born! Thank you Mom!!
What’s the kindest thing you’ve ever heard?
The truth because even though it can hurt, that is a choice. Truth sets you free, awakens the fire within you and strengthens your relationship with your soul. Those special people who show you the truth, are the kindest souls for they truly care about you and they really know who they are!
