Share Your World – 2015 Week #12

Standard

When was the last time you sat on a park or garden bench for more than ten minutes? Describe the occasion.

We found a great pier to sit on at the Carolina Beach State Park. I am in love with this park. I can gaze out at the Cape Fear River sunset, love!

Would you ever be interested in observing a surgery or do you turn away when the nurse brings out the needle? 

Oddly enough, I am an acupuncturist so I needle people everyday, however an acupuncture needle is so much smaller than a hypodermic needle, those I do not like and have to look away and nope not interested in seeing surgery 🙂

acupuncture-needle-comparisonsWhere’s your favorite place to take out-of-town guests?

The beach!

If you had an unlimited shopping spree at only one store, which one would you choose? Why?

Oh this is tough, clothing wise probably Old Navy because I wear mostly solid colors, but for home stuff, probably Target 🙂

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I’m grateful we finally got our tax return so we can pay some bills! I’m looking forward to visiting my mom this weekend!

I am scrambling to catch up with all my challenges, moving to a new town has been quite hectic. Overall though I live at the beach, so how can I complain? 🙂 It will all work out.

When you lose electricity in a storm, do you light the candles or turn on the flashlight? How many of each do you own?

I usually light candles, I used to have a ton of them but we’ve downsized in the move.

You are given $5,000 and the chance to exchange it for one of two envelopes. One envelope contains $50,000 and one contains $500. Do you make the trade? Why or why not?

Hmm, I think I’d keep the $5,000. I do have pretty good intuition, but I wouldn’t be able to forgive myself if I chose wrong. I could put a dent in my debt with the 5K 🙂

What’s your first memory?

Being at my Paca and Grandma’s house in rural Alabama. They didn’t have air conditioning or modern conveniences, but they were the most honest, loving people I ever met. I loved hiking in the woods with Paca and making cookies with Grandma. I still dream about them all the time, even though we lost them almost 10 yrs ago.

What do you do if you can’t sleep at night? Do you count sheep, toss and turn, or get up and try to do something?

I have a hard time sleeping with my monkey brain. I usually just toss and turn for an hour or so.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I’m grateful this move is done and the unpacking, now to get our jobs situated and wait for summer!!

We are officially moved to Wilmington. That’s why I’ve been MIA for a few days. I’m so happy to be living at the beach and have internet again. It’s funny how much you miss it just for a few days 🙂

How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are? 

25 was a great age! I think in my head I am forever in my 20s lol

Are you left or right handed? 

Right, my left hand is basically useless lol

If you HAD to change your name, what would you change it to?

In my novel my name is Moselle, I love that name 🙂

Where do you hide junk when people come over?

In the linen closet, I shove everything in there, already doing it in the new place

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I’m grateful for my mom and aunt helping us move, we couldn’t have made it without them and I’m looking forward to starting my new job!

Your favorite blog post that you have written? (add link)

I loved the Fun Foto Challenge of “My Favorite Things” I had a blast finding the subjects of the verses. I particularly had fun with the cream colored ponies and crisp apple strudels. I found one of Lyla’s ponies and bought a delicious strudel to photograph…and eat 😉

What do you feel is the most enjoyable way to spend $500? Why?

I would love to take my family on vacation. My mom has done so much for us over the years and I’d like to do something for her.

If you could know the answer to any question, besides “What is the meaning of life?”, what would it be?

Oh that’s a tough one, “What is the secret to happiness?” Yea, I’ll go with that 🙂

Where do you eat breakfast?

Honestly, on the couch, we keep making plans to all sit at the table together, but it hasn’t quite happened yet.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I’m grateful that my yard sale went fairly well and I’m looking forward to getting this move on!

Is the paper money in your possession right now organized sequentially according to denomination and with the bills right side up and facing the same way?

Actually it is 🙂 I had my moving sale yesterday, which is why I’ve been MIA from the challenges this week. I usually don’t have cash so it was fun to play with a little cash and align the bills 🙂

What is your favorite type of dog?  (can be anything from a specific breed, a stuffed animal or character in a movie)

Shiba Inu is my favorite, they’re such cute little balls of fluff, sadly my husband and I are allergic so we can’t have one.

If money was not an issue, would you go on a cruise?  If so where would you go?

I would go to the Galapagos Islands to see all the amazing creatures and beaches 🙂

Would you dare to sleep in haunted house overnight?

OOh scary, I’d like to think I could. I love scary movies, but I probably would wuss out and leave lol

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I’m grateful I made a little money with the moving sale. I’m excited to move next Saturday!!!

What was the last time you went to a new place?

I have mentioned we’re moving to the beach and recently we took a drive from Beaufort to Wilmington, NC. It was all back roads through small towns. It was a slow drive, but lots of interesting scenery 🙂

If you were or are a writer do you prefer writing short stories, poems or novels, other?  And what type of genre would you prefer?

I am an aspiring paranormal mystery writer, I have a novel I’m trying to finish up and get out into the world!

Out of your five senses (touch, taste, sight, smell, hearing) which is your favorite?

Taste for sure! I am really into food textures and tastes, I admit I’m extremely picky, but I love food 🙂

If 100 people your age were chosen at random, how many do you think you’d find leading a more satisfying life than yours?

I have this strange habit of wondering if other people’s lives are more interesting than mine. When I walk, I wonder what people are doing in their houses and I love looking at these photo blogs because it sort of satisfies this curiosity. I feel like I’m not that interesting, but maybe a lot of people feel that way?

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I’m grateful my Lyla is ok, she had a 103 fever and we ended up in the ER for the flu. She’s doing better today and I’m looking forward to us all being in better health in the next few days 🙂

Do you prefer shopping or going to a park?

Definitely a park! I would always rather be outside playing 🙂 Although now and then I don’t mind shopping if I can buy something I want. 😉

If you were a shoe, what kind would you be and why?

Probably a combat boot lol that was my shoe of choice for about 15 years, can’t beat them 🙂

What’s the story behind a time when you got locked out?

Several times when I thought he had the keys and he thought I had the keys haha he had to crawl in the window.

Do you prefer eating foods with nuts or no nuts? 

No nuts, I prefer Mounds 🙂

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I’m grateful for the amazing family I have standing by me in rough times! I’m looking forward to moving to the beach soon!

Where did you live at age five?  Is it the same place or town you live now?

At age 5 I lived in Ocean Springs, MS. We moved to Biloxi, MS when I was 6 and since then I have lived all over North Carolina and Colorado.

You are invited to a party that will be attended by many fascinating people you never met.  Would you attend this party if you were to go by yourself?

I would be very nervous, but I would go if there were fascinating people 🙂 I imagine going to a masquerade party like the scene from the Labyrinth movie with David Bowie!

Did you grow up in a small or big town? Did you like it?

I grew up mostly in Biloxi, MS which I thought was bigger, but I looked it up and in 2010 the population was only 44K so I guess it was smaller than I remember. I do know my graduating class was around 1000 so not too small.

As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I always wanted to be a marine biologist, I did a report on it and interviewed a professional in 2nd grade. Somewhere along the way I got a Biotechnology degree and then a Master’s in Acupuncture, so I went to the far end of the opposite spectrum from marine biology. 🙂

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I’m grateful that I got to travel to the beach in Wilmington, NC and I’m nervous and excited about hopefully moving there in the next month!

Given the choice of anyone in the world, whom would you want as a dinner guest?

The first person that pops into my head is Eddie Vedder from Pearl Jam. He is an amazing musician and I adore his philosophies and beliefs. I have watched several interviews with him and have seen him live. I think it would be very Zen to hang out and talk with him.

When did you last sing to yourself? To someone else?

I sing to Lyla all the time. She is obsessed with the carebears and my little ponies so she sings their theme songs with me a lot.

If you could wake up tomorrow having gained any one quality or ability, what would it be?

Patience! That has been my biggest struggle with being a mom. I need more of it!

What, if anything, is too serious to be joked about?

Child Abuse.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I’m grateful that I’ve gotten a lot done. We are possibly moving so I’m excited to check out this new place this week. I may be MIA until Friday. Have a great week everyone! 🙂

Are you a hugger or a non-hugger?

I have to be honest that I’m not a big hugger. My Dad is kind of a one arm pat you on the back kind of hugger and it’s worn off on me. I guess our family wasn’t super affectionate. I am all about snuggling with my guy and my Lyla, but not much of a hugger of anyone else 🙂

What’s your favorite ice-cream flavor?

Chocolate, Chocolate, and more Chocolate. Although I am now lactose intolerant so I get sick everytime I have ice cream anymore which is sad 😦

Do you prefer exercising your mind or your body? How frequently do you do either?

I would say my mind. I love to write on my novel and read. I need to exercise my body more, but I mainly like to take leisurely walks in the woods instead of using the gym membership that I pay for lol

Are you more of a dog person or a cat person? Why?

Sadly, I’m allergic to both so I don’t have any animals.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I’m kind of in a funk, not really connecting well with people this week and feeling a little isolated. Hoping this week will be better!
