Quit Gossiping And Shine My Shoes!

Thank you to everyone for their kind words & thoughts over the past two days. I’m planning to launch the Etsy shop tomorrow with another giveaway! Speaking of which, the last giveaway ends tonight! Winners will be announced tomorrow! Authors for the new project – I’ll be emailing you tomorrow as well.

My friend over at The Tsaritsa Sez tagged me for a “random-ass survey” and quite frankly, it’s exactly what I needed to get my mind off of yesterday’s events.

P.S. The title was chosen by her and has nothing to do with any part of this survey.

{ And the survey says . . . }

1. If you have pets, do you see them as merely animals, or are they members of your family?

Considering my post yesterday, that’s probably pretty obvious. We don’t have children yet and quite frankly, like Tsaritsa, they’re much easier to handle compared to children. I love them like they were my own flesh & blood.

2. If you can have a dream to come true, what would it be?

Like Tsaritsa, I would love to “receive a crap-load of cash.” Other than my current events, money is always weighing on my shoulders with me working from home and relying solely on myself for a paycheck.

3. What is the one thing most hated by you?

The times I doubt myself. The times I stand in the way of my own success.

4. What would you do with a billion dollars?

Buy a house, travel the world, move to a warmer state, focus on expanding my business, pay off my debts, and save some of it.

5. What helps to pull you out of a bad mood?

Normally just time to myself, focusing on something creative to get my mind off of it. Or listening to music and exercising.

6. Which is more blessed, loving someone or being loved by someone?

Both. They bring very different emotions out of someone.

7. What is your bedtime routine?

Pretty lame, honestly. Brush my teeth, wash my face, put on pajamas, say goodnight to the pets, say goodnight my fiance, kiss him goodnight, and curl up on my side.

8. If you are currently in a relationship, how did you meet your partner?

We met online through EHarmony.

9. If you could watch a creative person in the act of the creative process, who would it be?

Honestly? Myself. I find so much peace and solitude when I’m being crafty/creative and I feel like I could learn something from that if I watched from the outside. Because outside of that, I struggle to find my sanity at times.

10. What kinds of books do you read?

Pretty much any kind floats my boat. I love reading Uncle John’s Bathroom Readers books though. I love to learn new things.

12. What’s your fear?

Dying with regrets.

13. Would you give up all junk food for the rest of your life for the opportunity to visit outer space?

Nope. I love food far too much for that.

14. Would you rather be single and rich or married and poor?

I think happy and content, no matter my earnings.

15. What’s the first thing you do when you wake up?

Turn off the alarms.

16. If you could change one thing about your spouse/partner what would it be?

I would have him believe in himself more.

17. If you could pick a new name for yourself, what would it be?

I have no clue. I’ve been told multiple times that I look like a “Sarah,” but I don’t think that’s fitting for me.

18. Would you forgive and forget no matter how horrible a thing that special someone has done?

I’ve forgiven, but I’ll never forget. Forgiveness doesn’t mean that it’s acceptable, though. It’s just allowed me to move on.

19. If you could only eat one thing for the next 6 months, what would it be?

I think I would die because I love far too many kinds of food to just pick one thing and settle on it for 6 whole months.
