What would be on your bucket list if you were invisible? 😀

Ooh, interesting question. I think I’d sneak onto flights and explore all over the world. It would be a bit of a bummer to not be able to interact with locals, being invisible and all, but I think the pros outweigh the cons.

What word do you overuse?

“Theoretically.” Which I didn’t realize until one of my co-workers pointed it out at camp last summer, so thanks Ethan. XD Now I notice pretty much every time I use it, lol.

Would you like having a child named after you?

Maybe? I’m not sure. It might depend on which name of mine was used and who it was naming their kid after me?

What’s the dumbest way you’ve been physically hurt?

*cracks up laughing* Um… I have a handful of contenders. I can think of three or four off the top of my head from last summer’s camp alone, lol. Arrogantly trying to catch the biggest horse on the farm, running full-tilt into a friend’s face because we went the same direction trying to get out of each others’ way, agreeing to be flipped off a teeter-totter by a different friend, poorly catching a football and jamming my finger… I got hurt a lot over the summer, and it was pretty much always for dumb reasons. XD XD

Which word would you use if you could only use one for the rest of your life?

“Please” could be a surprisingly versatile word, I think. But I had to sit here staring into space for several minutes to come up with that one, lol. Using only one word would be practically impossible. I’m a writer. XD XD

How many times a day do you have to ask people to repeat themselves?

On the average day, not a whole lot since most of my interactions take place online/over text or involve loud siblings. But when I’m out more… more than I would like. ;P

What song is playing in your mind right now?

“Don’t You Want to Thank Someone” by Andrew Peterson, because I’m actually listening to music right now, lol. If you’d caught me with no music running (ha), of late it would probably be “We Don’t Talk About Bruno.” (Everyone keeps using it in Instagram reels, so pieces of it get stuck in my head and now I’m trying to listen to it more in full so that I can play through all of it instead of just one piece on repeat. :P)

On a scale of 1 to 10, how much fun do you have actually writing blog posts vs brainstorming ideas for them?

Hm… Brainstorming is probably a 5 or 6 lately, but when I’m in more writing/reading discussions it shoots up to an 8 or 9 because I get lots of inspiration from other people and things we talk about. (Give me a blog post and I can probably tell you who inspired it.)

How much I enjoy writing blog posts can fluctuate wildly, lol. It can be anywhere from a 3 on days I’m really not feeling it to a 10 on days I’m really excited about the subject matter.

Bubblegum or pistachios? (Randomness alert 😉 )


Which is less risky, in your opinion: choosing truth or a dare?

Truth. I’m a pretty open person, if and when I think you’re interested in hearing about me, so there are few things someone could ask me that would make me really uncomfortable. Dares, on the other hand, tend not to be my thing, lol.

If you were a color, which color would you be? (Be as specific as you want!)

Ooh! So I actually have a really fun answer to this question. I actually asked my friends a few months ago what color they associate with me, and I got kind of a variety of answers, some of which made sense and some of which I found a bit odd. Burgundy was a relatively common choice, since that’s the color I wear most often and therefore it’s ended up pretty tied to me. And I’ve had friends say it suits me personality-wise, which I guess I can kind of see.

But ANYWAY. One of my friends pulled a very specific shade of yellow: #ffd45c

It made my day, because it’s exactly the color I want to be. Sunshiney but soft, bright and happy but not over-the-top (not that over-the-top is bad; it’s just not usually me, lol), able to make people smile… So yeah, I’d be #ffd45c. ^-^

(If I weren’t yellow, though, I think I’d be a green similar to my blog’s new accent color. Soft, peaceful, refreshing… still happy, but in a different way.)

      1. Of course! :D

        (Haha! I dunno, I guess because, first of all, you’re wearing burgundy in your profile pic. XD And second, because burgundy is like a mix of purple-ish red and brown, so it’s like the perfect balance of passion and down-to-earth-ness [I need a better word for that…groundedness, maybe? IDK XD], which you are, so… XD)

  1. This was SO fun to read!!! Hahaha sounds like you had a fun but slightly painful summer ;) Now that I’m thinking about it, please really is a surprisingly versatile word! Interesting. Ahhh I LOVE that shade of yellow – so soft and happy. Lol now I’m curious… I’m gonna have to ask that question to my own friends (which color they associate with me). XD

    1. I’m glad! Yeah, definitely. XD The pain was well worth it, lol.
      Me toooo! It’s one of my favorite things. ^-^
      You should! It can result in some pretty interesting answers and discussions.
