So, I haven’t done these random questions in a hot minute so I felt it was time to do another one. Because you know, some of my new subscribers don’t know me too well yet, unless they read all my blogs. I haven’t read any of them yet, so my answers will be on the spot.
1. What would be harder for you to tell someone you love them or that you don’t love them back?
Me: Oh my goodness! Definitely telling someone that I love them. It’s even hilarious if a guy knows that I like him. My little heart beats a million times as I panic and think, “Omg,omg, OMG he knows I like him!” But whatever.
2. Would you give a homeless person CPR if they were dying?
Me: Of course. There are ways to still give mouth to mouth using a barrier and still save a life.
3. What would be the hardest thing to give up on?
Me: Sugar. Hands down sugar.
4. What makes you bored?
Me: People that talk about philosophy all day long. To be or not to be? TO BE, OK?! Now let’s go and buy pizza because I don’t have time or patience for this shizz. I used to like philosophy, but the older I get, the wiser you become and you don’t have time to think about life. You know life and you just want to live it. AMIRITE?!
5. What is your favorite four legged creature and why?
Me: Wait, this isn’t a fair question! I can’t choose! Dogs, I guess. I know it’s a boring answer, but it’s true. They are so sweet and loyal.
6. Do you like spicy foods and why?
Me: A big fat no. I’m Brazilian. Our foods are not spicy, therefore, my pallet is not used to feeling like I’m eating fire. There isn’t anything comforting to me to have my mouth burn up and my nose run. It’s just a taste preference. Nothing wrong with liking spicy foods, I just don’t like it. Don’t like Thai food either.
7. Are you old fashioned?
Me: In some ways, yes. I’m very independent and a leader, but it’s nice also to feel like a lady and have someone open your car door etc. It doesn’t bother me if a guy tells the waiter my order along with his or if I tell my order to the waiter. Do guys still walk their dates to their doors anymore? Just curious.
8. Something or someone you miss the most from childhood.
Me: Family vacations down in Brazil. My mom and I were great friends with a Swiss family and their son and I were like brother and sister since the age of 4. To this day, we are still friends. He’s married now, but he’s remained a loyal friend to me. We’d vacation with them many times. Just the carefree, lazy and warm nights by the beach chatting the night away as the Brazilian music softly swirled in the night winds. There is something about Brazilian nights by the beach that is unlike anything on earth. Truly special.
9. Are you happy with life so far right now?
Me: Yes, I am. I am glad I am getting justice. Last month, I got a letter stating the perpetrator got denied parole by the parole board members. So, he’ll be in jail for another 14 months. A Parole board committee will look at a person’s behavior while in jail as well as his other criminal offenses. Something must’ve sparked them to deny him parole.
10. You can have one of the following two things: trust/love.
Me: Trust. I’ve experienced love only to have it broken with trust issues. So, I’d prefer trust over love because with trust, love can develop. I give people my trust, but they end up breaking it. People can’t keep their word. Is giving your word not an honor anymore? Even for the smallest thing people say they will do, they don’t do it. That’s where trust comes in. If you can’t keep your word for something simple, why would I trust you with my heart? In the heat of a moment, trust is furthest from their minds. I respect someone who when given a situation/temptation that would break my trust, that they would step back and ask themselves, wait. Would this cause her to mistrust me or will this only make her trust me more? Find me a man who I can trust easily and I’ll have found the man of my dreams.
11. Have you ever been in love?
Me: Like truly in love? No. I’ve said this many times, but I’m saving being “in love” with the person I will marry. I’ve loved before, of course, but I believe the “in love” feeling should be for your soulmate. They deserve your whole heart. I don’t want my future husband to feel like sloppy seconds. I don’t want him to say to me, “Well, you’ve been in love several times already. How am I so special to you?”. I want him to feel like the most special person on earth and the only one who truly captured my heart. People invest their heart so fast in a person they just met that they end up having a broken heart because they gave their heart away way too fast to a cheap person. There is nothing wrong with being “in love” several times. People are different. I’m just saying this is my way of thinking and I’m sticking to it. Call me stubborn.
12. Tell me about someone you really admire?
Me: It’s kind of funny because I’m currently single, but there is this young 20 something couple on Instagram I follow. I follow the husband and the wife. I admire their mature and wise marriage advice. For a couple that young, I’m so impressed by their advice on marriage. They are just the cutest and their baby is cuteness overload. They are writing a book about their dating life and how they prepared for marriage. Their names are Jeremy and Audrey Roloff: beating50percent.com I learn new things from them everyday.
13. Any cooking adventures?
Me: I’m determined to make homemade mac and cheese. I’ve never made it before, so I might do that today.
14. Current feeling status?
Me: I’m not stressed out with uncertainty as I was 1 1/2 months ago. I am on the verge of feeling burned out by my job, but I’ve decided sometime next year I’ll find something else. I’ll be getting injections in my lower back to help with the inflammation next week. My knee situation has really made me not able to do much. I’m usually such an active person. Hopefully soon I’ll be doing many fun things once again.
Peace out everyone! Talk to you soon. I still need to check all my notifications so give me time to stop by your page & answer comments.
