wow, I have A LOT to be thankful for this year. It for sure has been a tough one, as one may gather from reading my blog here. I try to post every time I have a new thought or poem that seems to flow naturally right from my brain out to the keyboard in front of me. I love that I have been nominated for a Liebster Award! This makes me so happy, and is such a wonderful thing to wake up to on this thanksgiving day that i’ve been dreading due to my not so lovely family I have to deal with.
Alright, here are the questions asked, and my answers to them:
1) What is your earliest memory?
sadly, my first memory is my little fingers throbbing because of my father shutting them in the door by accident. He was always in a big rush to get to work. my little 2yr old self wanted to hug my father good bye before i didn’t see him all day. I reached out for a hug and got my fingers slammed in the door as he was leaving instead of a hug. This event shaped how I have viewed my father and his values my whole life time.
2) Describe your natural environment.
I always decorate a lot when able to let loose and make a space my own. This includes my art on the walls, Christmas lights of purple,red,blue, and other stands of other colors intertwined within each other upon the walls, random things like socks (clean socks), lol hanging from random nails in the wall, my corsets, upon my wall hung there to dry from washing, but then made apart of my attempts to decorate, and taken down when i wear them but hung up when washed again…. bits of magazine clippings, written out quotes i enjoy, other’s art work pieces, fabric, t-shirts, and anything else that will possibly keep my attention for a bit hung on the wall. comfy floor cushions adorn the floor, incense hangs in the air, a record player playing simon and garfunkel, sunlight streaming through the layered sheer fabric on the windows, many rugs scattered about, and good energy from my amazing friends who share in my understanding of life.
3) What is your pet peeve?
i have a few things i live by. one is that no matter what, no matter how bad it is, I’d rather know than not know something that affects me and/or someone close to me. being able to know things like this make it easier to deal with what is happening or what might happen. my parents always kept me away from such information. to this day i continue to have to shoot blindly in the dark and happen upon vital information, only when they feel pushed up against a wall and have no choice to tell me something. I have very much so grown to hate this not only when my parents keep info from me, but also when others do so as well. please, just be honest with me, that’s all i ask! I dont like to lie or keep secrets, it makes me very anxious to do so. I dont know how people do this on a grand scale on a regular basis!
4) What is your favourite colour?
red. always has been. i’ve been drawn to it ever since i knew what a color was. it’s the color that radiates from my being.
5) What is your maybe-one-day dream car?
how about a horse instead. i like that idea much better.
6) And your keep-on-dreaming dream car?
ummm, an elephant? lol
7) Name 3 items of clothing that define your style.
that is a hard one to answer. i am constantly finding new things to wear. i love my green boots that come up to my ankles. they are forest green, and have laces. probably one of my many pairs of jeans that have a smattering of paint in random places upon them, and then either a t-shirt with my friends art screen-printed on it, or one of my own designs on it.
8) Do you have any scars on your body?
yes. I had back surgery after complaining 7 years to my parents that my back hurt a lot, from falling off of a horse. they finally listened and it turned out that i had a slipped disk. got surgery and 3 weeks later was re-injured, so i don’t even know if the surgery was a success or not. I only have a large scar on my lower back from it.
9) What inspired you lately?
a family member who i connect with.
10) What was your last awkward moment?
hmmm i think i have these on a regular basis because i say things without holding back. I am the first girl in the group to say “that’s what she said!” this doesn’t go over too well when i’m with people i don’t know very much. yup. that happened last night. haha.
11) What was the last thing that made you smile?
The nomination for this Liebster Award! thank you busydarling ( http://busydarling.wordpress.com/) for the nomination!!
