MY BLOGGING PASSION:

I WOULD HONESTLY SAY THAT MY PASSION OF BLOGGING COMES FROM MY PASSION OF READING. WITHOUT READING SO MANY WONDERFUL BOOKS THAT LET MY IMAGINATION RUN RAMPANT, I HONESTLY DON’T THINK I WOULD CARE TO WRITE AS MUCH AS I DO NOW. I USED TO DREAM OF BECOMING A WRITER AND SELLING BOOKS… BUT I GOT WORRIED THAT MY PASSION WOULD DIE OUT IF I TRIED TO SET OUT TO ACCOMPLISH THAT DREAM. I DON’T FEEL THAT WAY ABOUT BLOGGING THOUGH. I SEE BLOGGING AS A WAY TO TALK TO PEOPLE ABOUT THE THINGS YOU LIKE AND LOVE AT A PACE THAT WORKS AND IS COMFORTABLE FOR YOU.

NOW A DAYS I ALSO BLOG AS A MEANS TO KEEP MYSELF FROM BECOMING LOST BEING A NEW MOM AND LOSING WHO I WAS BEFORE. MY HUSBAND AND MY DAUGHTER, ALONG WITH OUR PETS ARE MY ENTIRE UNIVERSE THOUGH AND I LOVE THEM SO VERY MUCH! THEY ARE WHAT DRIVE ME TO FOLLOW MY DREAMS AND TO TAKE TIME TO DO THE THINGS THAT MAKE ME HAPPY WHILE PUSHING THEM TO DO THE SAME.

GET TO KNOW ME: 10 FUN FACTS!

1. I CAN COOK ANYTHING BUT TOAST. IT’S ALWAYS BLACK AND ALWAYS SMOKING….
2. I AM JAPANESE ON MY MOTHER’S SIDE AND BRITISH ON MY FATHER’S SIDE.
3. I LOVE TO PARTICIPATE IN MUD RUNS AND OBSTACLE RACES LIKE WARRIOR DASH, THE SPARTAN RACE, AND THE SAVAGE RACE.
4. I AM A PLANNER ADDICT… ERIN CONDREN, STICKERS, AND ALL!
5. I AM AMBIDEXTROUS.
6. I AM A HUGE ANIMAL LOVER! I WOULD LOVE TO WORK WITH ZOO ANIMALS OR OCEAN ANIMALS SOMEDAY!
7. P.C. CAST IS AND ALWAYS WILL BE MY FAVORITE AUTHOR.
8. I LOVE PLAYING ONLINE GAMES AND WHEN I DO I ALWAYS PLAY A DPS CHARACTER!
9. I CAN PRETTY MUCH REPLICATE A DISH JUST BY TASTING IT ONCE. I HAVE WORKED AS A TASTE TESTER BEFORE FOR COMPANIES RELEASING NEW PRODUCTS.

10. I AM CURRENTLY STUDYING HERBALISM & I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!!

QUESTIONNAIRE TIME:

  1. WHAT’S THE WEIRDEST THING YOU HAVE EATEN? WELL I DON’T THINK IT IS WEIRD, BUT SOME OF MY FRIENDS DO: AN APPLE, JELLY, AND CHEESE – GRILLED CHEESE! IT IS SO SO YUMMY!
  2. IF YOU HAD TO STAY IN ONE PLACE (CITY OR TOWN) FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE, WHERE WOULD IT BE AND WHY? I CANNOT SAY ACTUALLY… I HAVEN’T BEEN TO ENOUGH PLACES TO SAY, BUT I WOULD WANT SOMEWHERE QUIET AND REMOTE, BUT A SHORT DRIVE TO THE CITY IF NEED BE. 
  3. WHAT IS THE MEANING OF “HOME” TO YOU? WHEREVER MY HUBBY, DAUGHTER, AND PETS END UP. 
  4. YOU ONLY CAN PACK 10 ITEMS TO BRING WITH YOU TRAVELING, WHAT ARE THEY? HAHA, I’M PRETTY SIMPLE. I WOULD SAY: MY WALLET, MY SUNGLASSES, CHAPSTICK, PHONE, CHARGER FOR PHONE, A REUSABLE BAG FOR ANY PURCHASES, SOAP, DEODORANT, HAIR TIES, AND BUG SPRAY *JUST IN CASE*
  5. PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION OR OWN MEANS? TOTALLY MY OWN MEANS. I GET ANXIETY FROM PUBLIC TRANSPORT.
  6. YOU CAN TIME TRAVEL, YOU ONLY HAVE ONE OPTION: TRAVEL INTO THE PAST OR TRAVEL INTO THE FUTURE. WHICH DO YOU CHOOSE AND WHY? I THINK IF I COULD I WOULD ACTUALLY GO BACK TO THE PAST, AS LONG AS WHAT I KNOW NOW, I WOULD KNOW THEN AND WAS GUARANTEED TO END UP WITH MY HUBBY AND HAVE MY DAUGHTER. I WISH I WOULD HAVE TAKEN THE STEPS TO JUST SET MYSELF UP FINANCIALLY BETTER FOR MY FAMILY. I AM NOT IN DEBT OR ANYTHING, BUT I WOULD HAVE SAVED MORE RATHER THAN SPEND ON USELESS CRAP.
  7. WHO WOULD PLAY YOU IN A HOLLYWOOD MOVIE ABOUT YOUR LIFE? ANNE HATHAWAY I THINK. 
  8. IF YOU COULD BE ANY ANIMATED CHARACTER (DISNEY, ANIME, ETC.), WHO WOULD YOU BE? OUT OF ALL THE QUESTIONS, THIS ONE IS BY FAR THE HARDEST FOR ME TO ANSWER, BECAUSE I LOVE ANIME SO MUCH. IF I COULD BE ANY ANIME CHARACTER THOUGH, I THINK I WOULD CHOOSE RIMURU FROM THAT TIME I GOT REINCARNATED AS A SLIME. HE HAS AWESOME ABILITIES, IS ALMOST INDESTRUCTIBLE, AND CAN TAKE ON VARIOUS FORMS. THERE ARE SO MANY DIFFERENT CHARACTERS FROM ANIMES THAT I LIKE THOUGH…
  9. YOU CAN ONLY DRINK ONE BEVERAGE (BESIDES WATER) FOR OTHE REST OF YOUR LIFE, WHAT IS IT? THE CUCUMBER MINT LEMONADE FROM THE CHEESECAKE FACTORY. IT IS SO ADDICTIVE TO ME…. 
  10. WHAT IS THE CRAZIEST THING YOU HAVE EVER DONE? BUNGEE JUMPED!
  11. LET’S MAKE 2019 THE BEST YEAR YET! WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS? I LIKE TO ALWAYS GIVE MYSELF 3 GOALS FOR THE NEW YEAR. THEY ARE: 1) GET INTO BETTER SHAPE AND BACK TO HOW FIT I WAS BEFORE MY DAUGHTER. 2) BECOME MORE “GREEN” AND LESS WASTEFUL TO THE ENVIRONMENT. 3) LEARN TO BE MORE CARE FREE AGAIN AND LET GO OF LITTLE STRESSES.

  1. Love love love this post and getting to know you better! Plus, we completely are even more in common than I already realized! I’ve been meaning to watch “that time I was reincarnated as a slime” (it’s next after SAO and Index are over… I use to watch SO much every season but been trying to limit as I spend so much time blogging) and now I’ll have to watch it in a different light :).

    PS. I LOVE planners (I just ordered my new Sailor Moon one and it comes with stickers this year!)…however, I’m HORRIBLE at using them. Any suggestions? I’ve always been addicted to paper products since I was little lol.
    P.P.S. I love PC Cast’s stuff too :).

    1. You will definitely have to watch “That Time I was Reincarnated as a Slime” as it is amazing! We are watching SAO as well when it releases on Saturdays for us. Have you seen Black Clover? That anime is really great as well! I usually have anime on in the background when I am blogging if it’s one that I have seen before (background noise)

    2. I also love planners! I have been using mine constantly for the past 5 years or so. I used to use them more as like a simple diary to show what I did during the day using stickers, but now that my life as gotten busy, it is more like a checklist. However the most important thing of the day, or something I need to remember I use a sticker for. Like someone’s birthday, A doctor’s appointment, An anime episode being released.

      My favorite stickers are from Ani on Etsy. Her store is super cute and I think you would LOVE her stickers. Her shops name is JoyofPlanning!

      Also which book/series is your favorite from P.C. Cast? I am fond of the Parthalon series
