My Answers to Krystle's 11 Liebster Blog Award Questions

  1. What would you do differently if no one would judge you?I would have taken a ton of loans out so I could finish college on time.
  2. What is your favorite holiday and why? Halloween because we have party and a haunted house and our neighborhood is filled with children dressed up and neighbors get dressed up and have haunted houses.  It's really a day of fun.
  3. Why did you start blogging?Really I started vlogging for a class I took in college, blogging seemed to be the natural progression.
  4. Have you done anything lately worth remembering?
    We, the family and I went to the Grand Canyon and other parts of Arizona.  We really enjoyed Walnut Canyon.  We did lots of hiking and want to go back to hike to the bottom.
  5. Do you think crying is a sign of weakness or strength?
    I don't think of it either way.  I think it's a sign you're upset and a release of your frustrations.  I see it as healthy. 
  6. What was your favorite school subject?Computer Science
  7. What makes you smile?  I think I smile easily, so almost anything. 
  8. What activities make you lose track of time?HA!  Social Media
  9. Time or money?Uhm, can I say both?  I'm at a point in my life I'd like the money.
  10. What is your favorite movie?This changes, I don't think I have an all-time favorite.  Right now, Star Trek.  One movie I go back and watch over and over is Jane Austen's Persuasion.  The 1995 version.  I don't know why.
  11. What is your favorite blog post?By Procrastination Coach:
    I did do the challenge but really it was the introduction of the Pomodoro technique and Eat the Frog that really helps me be productive.
