Hey everyone! Happy Wednesday! I hope you all have been enjoying your week, it’s been so sunny and in the 80’s here in San Diego. Through my classes and working endlessly on my graphic design portfolio, I’ve been trying to appreciate my city and take advantage of the sun and beaches. It’s been about a week since I’ve posted and I was nominated for the Mystery Blogger Award, so I thought I’d answer some questions today. Thank you so much to Moonlight and Macaroons for the nomination, definitely check out her post to learn more about her, I loved reading through the answers! Since I’ve done so many of these award posts now, I’m just going to get straight on into the questions.
Three Facts About Me
1. I’ve been to five different countries in Europe, but only been to one city on the east coast of the United States.
2. I was a complete tomboy when I was a kid. My sister and I loved going to the skatepark and wearing camo (yikes).
3. I’m a complete art kid and have nerded out just standing in a room full of Monets and Picassos.
Q: If you were a season, what season would you be and why?
A: I believe I’d be Summer (or Spring, since my birthday is in March). Summer has always been such a happy time for me, especially as a kid. We had so many traditions and my parents would always hype up the beginning of the season. I’d spend my days in our pool, lounging on the beach, or playing in the waves. My favorite thing to do at the beach was to stay in the water for as long as possible!
Q: What/who is your spirit animal?
A: Considering I was obsessed with bunnies as a kid and had a Peter Rabbit room as a baby, I’d say a rabbit is my spirit animal. Although, dolphins absolutely fascinate me and I see them fairly often back home. They’re beautiful and extremely intelligent.
Q: Where would you like to travel?
A: My answer would usually be to go back to London. I haven’t announced this on my blog formally yet, but I’m going back to England with my family this summer! You better believe there will be plenty of posts about that!! As for places I’ve never been to, I’d love to see somewhere tropical like Bora Bora or the Maldives. Scotland and Ireland have also been pretty high on my bucket list as well.
Q: What is the craziest thing you have ever experienced?
A: Moonlight and Macaroons mentioned being robbed in her answer, and I realized I had a very similar story that was one of the craziest things I’ve experienced! When I went to Athens, Greece this past summer, my friends and I were walking around one evening through a pretty touristy spot. This is where a lot of the local kids would attempt to pick pocket or sell things to unprepared Americans like ourselves. Don’t get me wrong, I wish I could’ve done something to help these children so they wouldn’t have to pick pocket anymore. Anyways, one of my friends was a great photographer, so he had some sort of bag with him. Many of the kids were reaching into his bag to try and take what I believe was camera equipment. They got very close to stealing from him, and we were shocked by the whole experience. Combined with the hustle and bustle of a big crowd while trying to stay with our group, it was pretty crazy.
Q: What would you choose as a superpower?
A: I think a fun superpower would be the ability to create healthy food out of thin air. I struggle sometimes when I come back from class, I’m super hungry, and I just want to stuff my face with whatever is available. Most of the time, it’s not very healthy things. So to instantaneously be able to create a preferably vegan and delicious meal would be so amazing!
