I was tagged by the adorable Amber from The Butterfly Papers to do this fun questionnaire. I loved reading Amber's answers and getting to know a little bit more about her, so I thought I would participate and encourage any of you that want to do it to go ahead as well!
If you could meet anyone, real or fictional, who would you choose?
I know I could pick someone famous or someone who did something amazing in our history, however I think it would have to be my Grandmother. My father's mother passed away a few days after I was born. The last conversation my Dad had with her was telling her about me. She never had the chance to meet me. She died very young, and extremely unexpected from a brain aneurism. My birth and her death were so close and I have always felt some odd connection to her, I can't really explain it. I would have loved to have known her and talk to her about her life and how my dad was growing up.
What is something you wonder about a lot?
I wonder a lot about how "good" I am doing. I can put a lot of pressure on myself to make sure I get everything done, and am improving. I have really worked on being kinder to myself over the years, and while I am a lot better, I still find myself getting pretty hard on myself. I believe in self improvement and sometimes I get frustrated with how hard it can be to change. This probably isn't making any sense, because you guys aren't in my head! But basically, I want to make sure I am always becoming a better person, and learning.
Where do you find your greatest inspiration?
I find my greatest inspiration in other people's culture, and experiences. When I was fourteen I was able to be an exchange student in Japan and I was blown away by how different my life was. It was a total culture shock and it sparked this desire in me to learn more about other people, especially those different from me. I love to travel and experience different cultures, music, art, heck even food can be inspiring! I love to absorb other people and everything they are about, it ignites me to challenge myself, and to keep on growing and learning!
