What do you do on a Tuesday afternoon when you’re sick and can’t think of a witty post or take a good photo or tweet until the cows come home? I’ll tell you what you do.
You try to catch up on blog posts and hope that you’ll be struck by some form of divine inspiration. I must have struck gold, because I found it on Amanda’s blog: Running With Spoons. She recently posted an A-Z survey and I loved it. I love reading those types of blog posts. Such a quick and easy way to get to know someone. Right? I’ve completed a similar one before, but I thought I would give this one a shot as well.
A – Age: Twenty-one. Believe it or not 😉 Baby face for days.
B – Biggest Fear: Driving in the rain. The ocean.
C – Current Time: 2:20pm.
D – Drink You Had Last: A cup of ginger tea. I’m sick, and ginger tea is all I want to drink. All the ginger tea for all the time.
E – Easiest Person to Talk To: I’ve met a couple of people that I just clicked with and they are the best people to talk to. I can talk to them about anything. I get no judgement and honest opinion in return.
F – Favourite Song: It depends on my mood, but this is the song that happens to be on repeat at the moment:
G – Grossest Memory: Once upon a time, I had a gumboot that got stuck on the race of my uncle’s farm. I was a kid, so I decided that it was best to abandon the gumboot and walk home with one shoe. It was a race on a farm, so it was covered in cow shit. Yeah, gross.
H – Hometown: Every place I’ve lived in has felt like home. I was born in Tauranga, but moved and grew up in a rural farming area, Ngatea. Ngatea and the surrounding area is my hometown. I spent fifteen years of my life there. I’m just a small town girl at the end of the day.
I – In Love With: Coffee. Sushi. The beach. Sunny days. Rainy days. Sleeping in. Massages. Forehead kisses. Fizzy candy. Jaguars. I’m in love with life. The good, the bad and the ugly.
J – Jealous Of: Anyone who currently isn’t sick. I woke up yesterday with the worst flu I’ve had all year. I’m feeling a little better today, but I’m still not going far from my bed. I’m slowly learning that staying in bed when sick is the best thing you can possibly do…even if it is incredibly boring.
Unless you’re like me and have been powering through episodes of Suits like there’s no tomorrow.
K – Kindest Person You Know: Am I a mummy’s girl if I say my mum? Ha. I’m not kidding though. Never have I ever met someone who is so kind, giving and selfless. I might be a bit biased, but she really is the greatest person.
L – Longest Relationship: Pass. Ha. I don’t think I’ve ever been in a “serious” relationship before. Dating, casually sleeping together or being an official “girlfriend”, I don’t think anything has lasted longer than four consecutive months.
M – Middle Name: Victoria. I love my middle name. My parents did good.
N – Number of Siblings: I have one “proper” sister, three step-brothers and one step-sister. Big family? Hell yes, and I love it.
O – One Wish: I wish I had a photographic memory. I reckon that would be pretty neat. I mean, who wouldn’t want that? Failing that, I agree with Amanda. I think teleportation would be pretty awesome too. I could also go the childish route, and wish for three more wishes 😉
P – Person You Spoke to on the Phone Last: My mother. Ha.
Q – Question You’re Always Asked: “How old are you?” To which I reply: “21. I promise. Imagine what I looked like with braces. Ha.”
R – Reason to Smile: Life. Just the fact that I (and you) got to wake up this morning is a blessing. The world is still spinning. I finally feel like I’m doing something that I love. I finally feel like I’m in a good place in my life.
S – Song You Last Sang: I’m a bit obsessed with Empire, so I’ve been singing a few songs from the show. Not even ashamed.
T – Time You Woke Up: 8.30am. So good to actually sleep in. I’m definitely not hating it.
U – Underwear Colour: Perv. Nude. How boring.
V – Vacation Destination: I’ve been dreaming about going to a lot of places. Wellington. Queenstown. Sydney. Gold Coast. Melbourne. Rarotonga. Hopefully I’ll get to all of them one day.
W – Worst Habit: Biting my nails. Still. I love my nails, but I always bite them when I get nervous or bored.
X – X-Rays You’ve Had: A handful. I’ve had some x-rays of my lungs/chest and a couple of my foot.
Z – Zodiac Sign: Taurus. I’m the epitome of a Taurus woman too. Look out world 😉
