1. I love music. I love all types of it! I listen to a lot of Panic! At the Disco lately, but I have a pretty eclectic taste. My parents exposed me to all different music types when I was a kid and it stuck with me. As I’m writing this, I’m listening to Selena Quintanilla Perez. (If you’re unfamiliar with her, check her out. She was, unfortunately, killed in 1995. But her music lives on. In 1997, Jennifer Lopez did a movie about her. A talent that was taken way too soon–she was only 24 when she died. But her story and her music is so good!)

I think the only genre of music I don’t really like is polka, haha! But I definitely listen to a lot of different things.

2. I love representation. I am biracial; I was adopted and I know my biological mother was white, but I know nothing of my father. However, it is blatantly obvious that I’m mixed. So for me to see other women who look like me succeeding in different fields, be it music or publishing; it inspires me.

3. I hate most Christmas movies. Cannot stand them. Hallmark movies have destroyed them for me, honestly. They start airing them in October, for heaven’s sake! And they air them for two weeks in July too. (I know this because my mother is watching them. -_-) The plots are all the same and I just loathe them. Ugh. At Christmas, I like the Peanuts special, the Rockefeller Tree lighting, the little specials from when I was a kid–Rudolph, Frosty, etc. Beyond that, miss me with Christmas movies.

4. Sunflowers are my favorite flowers. I find it impossible to look at them and not feel some sense of joy. It’s my goal, actually, to get a poster of Van Gogh’s Sunflowers for my wall. 🙂 I like to smile. If a poster can inspire one, why not? 🙂 I don’t remember precisely when I got into Van Gogh; I know I was young and in high school. My tastes always ran a bit left of center than that of my peers and friends. But it made my art teachers happy.

5. I adore art! I can’t draw, sculpt or any of that to save my life. I really can’t. But I can appreciate it and I do. As stated above, Van Gogh is one of my favorite artists. There is a great deal of ugliness in the world and I find that art, along with books, is a saving grace from it all. This is a clip from Doctor Who, that always makes me cry. In a good way. Enjoy that. 🙂

Some of my other favorites are Michaelangelo, Leonardo, Frida Kahlo, Modigliani, Mary Cassatt, Toulouse-Lautrec…etc.

6. I am me! I’m quirky and I know it; I don’t care if people don’t like it. I’m 32…almost 33. I’m tired of trying to fit into lines that I will quite literally never fit into. I am who I am. The song ‘This Is Me’ from The Greatest Showman has become my theme song. I absolutely love it.

7. I think it’s rude… when people ask me when I’m going to have kids. Drives me nuts. I don’t even have a boyfriend. I know they mean well. But I don’t want children of my own. I like kids. I have no issue getting right down and playing with them. I had an absolute ball when I visited one of my long-time friends and got to spend time with her and her family. (Shoutout to my little pals A and C! ❤ Not posting their names cause they’re tender age kids.) I’m happy to be a presence in their lives, but as to having kids of my own, that’s always going to be a ‘no’.

Now….my nominees are….

  1. I listen to a huge variety of music too. My tastes are far reaching, but rarely have depth. So I’m like, “Oh yeah, Panic! At the Disco! I love their one album I’ve heard!” and “Selena! I love that one song!” My favorite music tends to come from the 60s, though. My favorite flowers are daisies, but sunflowers are nice too. 🙂

  2. Interesting about not having your own kids. If you had a partner, would you want to adopt? My son and his partner don’t want kids, and I’d be thrilled if they decided to adopt an older child. But that’s their decision, and no one should tell you what you should or shouldn’t do with your own body and life. You go!

    1. I don’t find myself capable, honestly, of taking care of a child. I don’t think I”m emotionally mature enough for it. I have issues of my own that need dealing with, and I wouldn’t feel 100% comfortable trying to raise a child up. I donate, as able, to programs for kids and at the holidays, again, if able, I donate for Toys for Tots. Love kids, just not for me. ❤

      1. Better to be self-aware of our own capabilities than attempt to do something that might end up harming someone else, no matter how unintentional. I mean, we are talking about a human life here, and there are so many children already out there who aren’t getting the care and help they need. Good for you!
