Welcome to all of you who just recently started following. The blog has changed a lot in the past couple of years, as well as meeeee. You can always check the FAQ page, and here are some fun little questions I answered recently. Comment, rate, or shoot me an email if need be.
How old are you?
I’m about to be twenty-three.
When did you start blogging, and why?
I want to say in August of 2012 because I had finally figured out I was okay with my disease (Pulmonary Hypertension) and had a lot to say about it.
What is your blog’s primary focus?
Honestly, just things that capture my heart.
Do you still work on writing outside of the blog?
Yes, I’m finishing my book (I’m re-writing the ending) and I’ve dabbled in poetry.
Where are you located?
A very colorful, and cultural state. :)
Describe your personal style?
Boyish with a few jewels, and vintage pieces thrown in.
Which fashion icon has most influenced your approach to style?
Janis Joplin, Millicent Rogers, Stevie Nicks, and Betsey Johnson. I could never narrow it down to just one.
What is your greatest splurge?
Food, purses, jewelry and art.
What is your best feature?
My Kat Von D cat-eyeliner that is painted on, always.
Where do you find most inspiration?
Within nature, my culture, and music.
How has Education influenced your career?
If we’re talking about the piece of paper you pay a lot of money for, then it hasn’t. I’ve taken my college courses, but everything that I’ve learned that has truly helped me in meeting other people, talking with them, loving them and learning through them…I’ve learned by living. I love learning. Not everything important comes by a paper earned by sitting within four walls. But if you have that piece of paper because you worked your butt off for it, that’s cool too. I have to get that one day too.
What are you currently most frustrated with?
I can honestly say I’m not…is that insane?
What most boosts your confidence?
When I’m tan, having a good hair day, and when people compliment my writing.
What is a woman’s greatest asset?
Independence, and knowledge.
Which character trait do you must value in others?
Probably humor, and honesty.
How do you relieve stress?
Painting, drawing, and writing.
When are you happiest?
When I’m in the mountains, making new friends, and when I’m cuddling with Rocco.
What do you want people to know about your disease?
Yes, I’m actually sick.
What do you think is the most important thing in life?
Never stop learning. And of course loving other people.
