Here are the questions I was asked…

  1. What Is One Piece Of Advice You Wish You Had Listened To?

    I don’t know if I’ve ever had advice I’ve regretted not following, but I DO regret following the advice of my guidance counselors in going to college right away. I should have taken a year off to figure out what I really wanted to do, or should have gone to community college for the first two years.

  2. If You Were Your Favourite Celebrity For A Day, What Would You Do?

    If I were Chris Pratt, I’d probably just go meet all of the actors involved at Marvel. And probably say hi to some kids and make them happy 🙂

  3. If You Were To Throw A Dinner Party, What Would Be Your Starter, Main Course & Dessert?

    Starter would be steak bruschetta with fresh tomatoes and basil drizzled with a balsamic reduction. Main course would either be salmon avocado rolls with tobiko on top, or salmon topped with lemon slices and asparagus. Dessert would definitely be fried ice cream!

  4. What Do You Love Most About Blogging?

    It gives me motivation to write a lot, after a very long stint of neglecting my writing. I also love the community it’s brought me into; I get so many ideas from you guys!

  5. Have You Met Any Bloggers In Real Life, Who Would You Love To Meet?

    I’d love to meet pretty much any of my UK followers! I’ve never been there and would love to go. I need to find a blogger meet-up in the US…

  6. Have You Ever Taken Part In Any Extreme Sports? Sky Diving? Roller Derby? Skiing etc?

    I haven’t, but perhaps sky diving someday!

  7. Who Was Your Childhood Celebrity Crush?

    I honestly wasn’t into celebrities, now or ever! I tried to get into celeb boy crushes but it was never a thing. I do remember having a picture of Hilary Duff in my room… I was probably pan before I knew I was LOL.

  8. Have You Ever Shown Your Blog To Family, Friends, Work Colleagues etc?

    I’ve told many people about my blog! I don’t really have anything to hide; I’m done posting things on the internet that I wouldn’t want certain people to see. It’s just not worth it.

  9. Do You Believe In Ghosts? Have You Ever Seen A Ghost?

    I don’t really know if I do? I believe in spirits lingering, but I’ve never really experienced anything ghostly.

  10. If You Could Choose To Go On Any Reality TV Show, Which Show Would You Choose?

    RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE 5000000000000%

  11. If You Could Design Your Own Perfume, What Would You Call It? What Colour Would It Be And What Would The Scent Be?

    I’d probably call it “All is Well,” and it would be a combination of lavender, lemongrass, and rosemary. Nice, peaceful scents!

Here are my questions for my tagged followers:

  1. Where is your favorite place to go to when you’re feeling down or disconnected?

    I agree with your #1 for sure. In our generation, we were all just pushed toward college as the natural next step and we were told a degree was necessary for getting a job. But then at the end of the day, we’re saddled with all this debt for a degree many of us aren’t even sure we wanted…because who knows what you want at eighteen years old. I hate that I felt so pressured to follow that path. If I could go back and do it again, I’d study something completely different at a much cheaper school. I’m glad to see people are really starting to shed light on this topic.

    • Haha, sort of glad to see another Emerson student thinking the same way! Though not glad that we’re both in similar situations, student debt-wise. My parents wanted me to go to school, which is understandable, but I wish they really stuck it to me just how much this debt would affect my life. I know they wanted me to be happy, and my education at Emerson was great for the most part… it just doesn’t really have a lucrative value. I’m glad I have become a better writer, because it really is my passion, but I honestly don’t think 100k in student debt was worth it.

      I hope you’re doing well, lady! You were always so much fun and down-to-earth in our writing classes together. I appreciated that a lot 🙂

        Yeah, it sounds like we’re in the same boat. As much as I enjoyed the writing classes…in hindsight, I don’t think I would choose to spend the $$$ again. Especially since I pretty much just stopped writing after school (which is actually what brought me to your blog–inspiring to see someone else fall off the writing wagon but then get back on in such a positive way!).

        I hope you’re doing well, too! I really enjoy your posts. Seems like we’ve had a similar-ish life trajectory after college with trying to find work as self-taught designers (I actually lost my design job that I didn’t want to be at right before you did). It’s just been nice to feel like it isn’t just *me* trying to figure it all out. I hope that’s even more incentive for you to keep writing, so I can keep reading!
