Melissa from SugerCoatIt tagged me in a game of sharing things about yourself. Well kinda, she said 'you' meaning anyone but I was reading so it meant me. If you know what I mean.
Some interesting questions, some you may not know or suspect the answers to. But it's me.
Describe yourself in 7 words
Goofy, creative, kind, funny, self-aware, open, animal-lover
What keeps you up at night?
Thinking. Always thinking. I can’t seem to turn my brain off. Anything from big life decisions to what I’ll wear on the weekend. My brain is constantly moving with all these ideas and questions. I think that’s part of why I like having this blog so much – a space to purge and hash it out. Helps to calm my mind a little.
Who would you like to be?
The best version of me. Blech. Sounds cheesy right? And it kinda is, but to be honest, all the people who’s beauty, skills, talents or lifestyles that I covet I can also see the down sides to. So I haven’t actually come across the person I would like to be just yet. And I’m hoping that means I still have the chance to make it me.
What are you wearing right now?
A little black dress with leopard fur belt and black and leopard bow platform wedges. I know right!
What scares you?
Pretty sure most of you already know this. Sharks and crocodiles. Eugh. Heebie jeebies. Although sometimes I also get scared of being hurt and being alone.
What's best and worst about blogging?
Best – The amazing stories I get to read and the awesome people I have come to know both online and in real life. Having only been in the blogging game for a little while, I was pleasantly surprised by how friendly the QLD blogging community is and how much it has grown, even in the short time I’ve been around. I love the personal vibe of blogging and the connections you form with people, feeling as if you have known them for years when really it’s only months and you’ve never met them in person. It’s pretty cool.
Worst – The pressure I put on myself. I expect so much from me because I appreciate the little audience I have built up and don’t want to disappoint them but I don’t always have the time or ability to create the kind of content I’d ideally like to put on the blog and sometimes that makes me feel frustrated and a little guilty. But I just keep plugging away…
What was the last website you visited?
The test blog for my new blog design ;) Pretty exciting really!! Can’t wait to show you guys! And not long now…but I will tell you one thing…it’s looking freakin AWESOME!
What’s one thing you'd change about yourself?
Learn to be more proactive, independent and not be afraid to stand up and promote myself.
Tell us about the person that tagged you
Melissa is an awesome blogger, a great friend, a wise soul, a super fun girl, a fashionista and a kind heart. She is also a chronic hair toucher, knee feeler and boob grabber. She is like my bloggy big sister. I wish we got to hang out more.
Ok, feel free to make it your turn now. I'd love to get to know you all better :)
