Three things about myself:

  2. I love music, writing, singing, traveling, friends and family
  3. I am going to try hard to do some sort of writing 1 to 2 times a week this year


Questions from Sadje of Keep It Alive ;

If you could choose one super power, what would it be and why? ( Funny, If it’s not already apparent) My one super power (of which I find a pain in the arse) is my sensitivity to others and my surroundings.  I am learning how to work with it now.  It used to rule my emotions and life.

What stimulates your brain to produce its best, a beverage, a muse or anything else? Music is one definite stimulant.  Reading is another.  Sometimes even a glass of wine.

If you are alone in the house and a door slams upstairs with sound of running feet, what are you going to do?  Thank goodness I don’t have an upstairs, but if I did, knowing I was alone and know one has been there, I would most likely think it was my imagination and go check it out cautiously (with cell phone in hand, just in case, of course).  😉

Seeing your image in the mirror, what is the predominant thought?  My hair is a mess, I need to call my girl! Ha!

What sort of movie you have to go and see, even if the ticket is $100? And there will no Netflix or DVD release!  There is not a movie worth that to me! I can do without.

Is climate change theory real or a conspiracy to save the earth?  Well, just looking at all the crazy weather we are having each year, and it seems to get worse each year, I would say it is real!

Okay, now the hard part… who to choose, who to choose….

So many of those I know have been chosen time and time again.  No doubt they are great and deserve it.  I know this for a fact.  I am picking 5 bloggers that I have recently found and follow for my nominees:

Jade M Wong

Bee of Bee Writes

Therapy Bits

Jay-len Doerksen

Victoria Stuart

My questions are:

Where is the one place in the world you would most like to see?

What is one thing you would like the blogging world to know about you?

Do you believe in magic?

What helps you focus on your writing?

If you could, what would you like to do differently for your blog?

You guys are great and all those reading this, please check these bloggers pages out and give them your support! ❤

Caramel’s Questions for her nominees:

  1. Do you have any blogging achievements you are pleased with…or a particular post you are really proud of? It seems that many folks go through things I go through.

  3. What are your next door neighbours like? Do you get on with them? I really have no “next door neighbors” I am on a street that we are separated by woods and so can’t really interact very easily.  Which is really okay by me.  :p

  5. What is your favourite food “on toast”? BLT! Yummy!
  6. Do you have any bad driving habits? Hmmm….maybe getting irritated when there is a lot of traffic and I feel anxious and stressed so let it change my mood to irratable.
