Time for another about me post. I am using some of the questions from the Root Report 25 New Get to Know Me Questions.
- Are you named after anyone?
Yes, but not directly. When my mother was growing up my grandmother always had a bottle of CHANEL perfume neatly displaced on her dresser. She would put a dab on for special occasions. My mom always liked the way the name looked on the bottle.
- When was the last time you cried?
UHM. Last two weeks ago, at work. Stay tuned for my Crying at Work Post. It happens to everyone,
- Do you have kids?
Nope, but I do have two cats. The kitten just got spayed and is currently wearing 0-3M baby clothes. Adorable.
- If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?
This is something I ask myself a lot actually. And I would like to think so, but I would probably also be annoyed from time to time too.
- Do you use sarcasm a lot?
All the time, do I get points for being blunt too?
- What’s the first thing you notice about people?
Honestly… how they treat others. It sticks out to me like a sore thumb.
- What is your eye color?
- Scary movie or happy endings?
I hate scary movies, I am known for “watching” with a pillow in front of my face. Sometimes the world is rough enough as it is, so when I want to be entertained it has to be a happy ending.
- Favorite smells?
The smell of a wood-burning furnace, fall and oddly enough a sea salt spray I used in my hair on a trip to Iceland. I used it the whole time we were there and now when the smell hits my nose I am right back there.
- What’s the furthest you’ve ever been from home?
- Do you have any special talents?
I am creative and good at coming up with solutions for problems.
I am a highly sensitive person or as I call it a collector of emotions. It can be difficult but it also helps me be in tune with my environment.
- Where were you born?
In a hospital.
- What are your hobbies?
How much time do you have? I like to do a lot of different things. I have recently gotten into podcasts and audiobooks. I knit regularly, right now I am working on a cropped sweater for yoga class. I like to bake, cooking is not really my thing, I had a phase with royal icing that was intense. Writing is something I have always liked but never devoted much time to, until now.Board games Sunday’s are a thing in our house. We have a few friends over to play our favorite games. I also enjoy skiing and hiking. Being outside and in a thick forest is one of my favorite places. Yoga is something I have recently picked up again, I have tried it many times but I think it will stick this time.
