Here are my response to Mymischiefmanaged’s Questions
- Are you a morning person or a night Owl?
I am a night Owl, always have been always will be. I nap in the afternoon in order to get enough sleep.
- What is the one thing you are incredibly bad at?
I cannot count. I can administer a million dollar budget, but don’t expect me to go out onto a warehouse floor, count the number of pallets of pop produced that day and give you the correct number. Even if I count the product four or five times, I will give you a different number every time. I know it, I accept it and I no longer worry about it.
- What is your favorite movie soundtrack?
The soundtrack to “The Keep” by Tangerine Dream. I watch the movie almost yearly, just to listen to the music.
- Describe yourself in three words.
Spiritual, Round, Creative
- On a scale of 1-10, how adventurous are you?
Depends on the circumstances. 1-3 when it involves my work, 6-8 if I am out camping or rafting.
- Where do you live? Do you like it?
I live in Calgary, Alberta – Canada. I love it. I’ve lived in many cities in Canada, one in Germany. I selected Calgary as my permanent home.
- What is a piece of advice you would give to your future self?
Learn to listen to your inner voice earlier. Don’t listen to others when they say you can’t or shouldn’t do something. You can and you should.
- Are you more of a cat person or a dog person?
I am both. Each touches my heart and soul in different ways. The dogs in my life have shared their enthusiasm for everything with me. The cats have taught me to love gentle solitude and independence.
- What is your guilty pleasure?
A hot bubble bath in the middle of the afternoon and a good book.
- What is your favorite color?
Green, the verdant green of the newly opened leaves of the spring.
- Do you have any advice for me and/or other bloggers who are just starting?
Find a way to write everyday. Connect with other writers who will encourage and support you. For me this has meant registering for the Blogging 101 challenge. I need the discipline and accountability offered by completing the daily assignments. When all is said and done, I am hoping it will become a habit, one where I will write on my own daily, without the formalized schedule.
