Random Questions part 2
Please see questions 2-10 here.
11) Do you have any strange phobias?
I don't think so. I am afraid of scorpions, but come on, that's just logical! I am afraid of dark parking lots, too, but that's because I watch too much news.
12) Ever stuck a foreign object up your nose?
Again, I don't think so. My mom may be able to tell you differently, though. I was kind of a weird kid.
13) What's your religion?
I do not follow any religion. I do believe in a higher power, but I'm not she what he/ she/ it is called. I believe in living a life of honesty and doing good for others and myself. Really, every religion believes in those principles, so maybe I'm ALL religions rather than none.
14) If you are outside, what are you most likely doing?
Walking. Daniel, the girls, and I go out walking at least a couple of times per week. Now that I CAN I take advantage of it every opportunity I get!
15) Do you prefer to be behind the camera or in front of it?
I am definitely the one behind the camera in most cases. There were times I asked Daniel to take pictures of family gatherings just so I could prove I've been a part of our daughters' lives!
16) Simple but extremely complex. Favorite band?
I don't really have a favorite band. This is something that changes daily, depending on my mood.
17) What was the last lie you told?
I told a student I wasn't angry with her, even though I was furious. I wanted her to get on with the day so I could, too. I don't stay mad at my students for too long, anyway.
18) Do you believe in karma?
Absolutely! I think that is why I have a hard time accepting being so sick for so long. What did I do to deserve this pain? I know... it's silly.
19) What does your URL mean?
My blog originally started as a health blog to keep me accountable on a weight loss journey. Little did I know that it would eventually become a life-line to me through the worst year of my life.
20) What is your greatest weakness; your greatest strength?
What is this, a job interview? I hate this question. My greatest weakness is my ability to see both sides of a situation. It makes me look two-faced because I can flip-flop often. My greatest strength is my ability to see both sides of a situation. I think it gives me compassion in a lot of areas. I rarely see absolute right or wrong.
21) Who is your celebrity crush?
I can't really say I have a celebrity crush. The two trainers on Biggest Loser, Bob and Dolvett, are both pretty nice to look at, though!
22) Have you ever gone skinny dipping?
I can't remember a time when I did, but that's not to say that it didn't happen.
23) How do you vent your anger?
I scream, I cry, then I get very quiet lately. That quiet part of me is my dad coming out. Once I blog about the situation or let it ease on its own I usually don't talk about it again. This is kind of a new way of handling anger for me. I used to do a lot more of the screaming and be more physical in my anger. I couldn't do that during the months I was confined to the couch, though. I definitely started turning inward at that point.
24) Do you have a collection of anything?
Yes, I have a collection of picture books and stuffed animals to go with them. Kohl's sells these sets, and I started collecting them for my classroom when I thought I would be teaching in an entirely different environment.
25) Do you prefer talking on the phone or video chatting online?
Neither, I enjoy texting or emailing.
