Get Inside My Head: Part Two

Exams are over! Hallelujah. That was almost painless. Almost. Ha. Exams are never easy – open book or not. I’m now looking at three (ish) weeks of holidays before the second semester starts. How’s that for a proper break? I’m heading up to Kuaotunu today and I’m going to be there for a week (or so). Nothing says ‘holiday’ like being at the beach, right?

This post is part of my goals that I’m trying to complete. I’ve already written one post, which you can see here. Enough of the procrastination though, let’s do this!


You’re having lunch with three people you respect and admire.  They all start criticising a close friend of yours, not knowing she is your friend.  The criticism is distasteful and unjustified.  What do you do?

I would tell them to back off. I’m pretty sure they (whoever they are) would pick up that something is wrong because I tend to get a bit emotional when it comes to my friends. I have been in situations when people have criticised/picked on some of my friends, and I ended up in tears over it. So yes, telling them to back off would probably be the mildest of things that I do. Worst case scenario: I end up throwing my lunch in their face. Because I’m twelve. Apparently.

If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be?

I have a whole board on Pinterest dedicated to things that I want to have as a reminder and they are phrases that I would absolutely repeat to anyone else. My favourite would definitely be a new discovery. If you don’t want to click on the link then it says: I hope you know you’re capable and brave and significant. Even when it feels like you’re not. I would tell them to remember that. That would be my one piece of advice. Failing that, I would tell them: Sometimes you have to do what’s best for you and your life, not what’s best for everyone else.

Would you break the law to save a loved one?

It depends if they broke the law themselves, and then it would depend what law they broke. Ha. In all honesty, I probably would break the law for them. You know, short of murdering someone.

Have you ever seen insanity where you later saw creativity?

Yes. I think all creativity looks like insanity at first. Don’t you?

What’s something you know you do differently than most people?

Dating. Ha. I have a taste in men that is different to most of my friends. Am I ashamed? Hell no 😉 You know what they say about older men. They have more “worldly knowledge”. Ahem. I’m also one of those people who could pick up and leave in a second. Without hesitation. I’ve done it once, and I know I will do it again in the future. I also buck the tradition of wearing high heels on a night out. Flat shoes are 10000000 times better than having sore feet at the end of the night. Comfort over fashion 😉

How come the things that make you happy don’t make everyone happy?

We’re all different. I would be a bit concerned if everyone found happiness in the same things. That would make for a very boring world.

What one thing have you not done that you really want to do?  What’s holding you back?

Travel. I want to travel so incredibly badly. I almost lived in England (Lancaster to be exact) for a year, but I ended up pulling the plug on that trip. That is something that I regret. A lot. I’m probably the only thing holding me back. Well, that and money. I’ve had an epiphany (of sorts) and I’m incredibly happy where I am right now. Life is oh so good.

Are you holding onto something you need to let go of?

Nope. Well, I don’t think so. I am way too good at cutting people/things out of my life. If it doesn’t benefit me in some sort of way, then it has to go. End of story. I can appreciate that some things in life will be harder to let go of, but I haven’t come across that thing/person (yet).

If you had to move to a state or country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why?

Italy. For pizza. In all seriousness though, I probably would move to Italy or somewhere in Europe. I’ve always been fascinated by the area. If all else fails, I would probably move back to America. I liked it when I was fifteen, so I should love it now that I’m twenty-one 😉

Do you push the elevator button more than once?  Do you really believe it makes the elevator faster?

No. Ha. I do push the sidewalk buttons more than once though, especially when it’s raining.

  1. everyone liking the same things and finding happiness in the same stuff would definitely be boring! I think that’s why it’s so much fun when you DO find someone with similar interests… it’s exciting! it’s like “omg yay another weirdo like me!! BE MY FRIEND!!” lol



  2. This is great!! I stumbled (literally through Stumble Upon) onto these questions and decided to answer them myself! They are incredibly thought provoking!!

    Love your blog 🙂


  3. My advice , don’t let money hold you back from traveling. I know that you may think ” oh I need to save for this or that” but travel while you are young! Coming to Europe has done wonders for me mentally and physically and wouldn’t change this experience for the world! I agree with Italy though , the pizza is just too good!


    1. Yes! I so regret that it did. I got accepted into Lancaster university for a year, but I simply didn’t have the funds to get me there…and keep me there for 365 days haha. I’m thinking of reapplying with my current university though, so you never know what might happen! 😀


    1. I love them too! A few of them have left me staring at the screen for a good 10+ minutes before I could come up with an answer though. Some people have started answering the questions on their own blogs too! It has been so cool to see how our answers stack up 🙂


  4. Randomly stumbled upon this post – what brilliant questions. (and answers!) I 10000% agree with the flats thing. you won’t catch me dead in heels. the things they do to your feet!! not worth it. 😉
