Want to know some stuff about me?! You may or may not know or care but here’s some questions & my answers! Yay!! ;-D
1.) What Do You Do For A Living?
I guess this question often means work. What do I do for work? Money? I work at a store. Currently. And I always want to. I love having positive, friendly interactions with strangers/families/people everyday or most days and attending to their needs at the moment. But my dream job is a counseling, peer specialist, or psychiatric technician job, helping people heal & empower themselves. I want to dedicate my life to inspiring & helping others. Helping people overcome depression & other mental health issues and helping mentally healthy people be even more happy & joyful. Also, for a living, I take pleasure in simplicity. Just being. Basking & soaking in the beauty of the world, Nature, & love. I don’t get paid in cash but with something much more valuable!
2.) Who Do You Love?
I love almost everyone I know, in different degrees. I am extremely loving. I’m very shy but I’m good at expressing love, especially after I get to know people better. Love can be a sentimental, affectionate feeling, but it can also be,as Norman Vincent Peale says, “a rational esteem for them as persons”. I try to think of every single person, whether I like that person or not, know that person or not, as a person with needs, longings, desires, aspirations, goals, and dreams. Every person has a breath, a life, a story. That person may not be someone I know & love but that person is someone.
“When you are in an upsetting situation, try loving everyone involved and pray for them, hard as they may be. Loving doesn’t mean sentimentality but rather a rational esteem for them as persons.” ~ Norman Vincent Peale
3.) Do You Have Enough Money?
( That’s a very important question. You may have less money than everyone else in your group, but still have enough. Or you may have huge amounts of money and yet not enough to make you feel better. How much money do you need in your life?)
I was never someone with much money. My family has always struggled financially. I usually have enough for essentials but have to struggle with it. I know money does not have to equal happiness. I would love to have more money but I don’t think about it too much! I am in debt and would pay it all. I would help people, give to strangers in need, help animals and yes I would even go on shopping sprees but I don’t need more to be happy in general. I would choose rewarding/satisfying/fun work over money if I can only have one. Also I am the reason I don’t have a lot of money. I know I can work hard to get a good paying job if I were dedicated & motivated enough.
4.) Are You Healthy?
I do think of myself as healthy. I’m not sickly. While I struggle with chronic pain & fatigue somewhat often, I have a good immune system. My body functions well. I don’t abuse my body very much except with eating unhealthy food/drink more than I should. I get good sleep & rest & exercise. So I am healthy, yes.
5.) Do you Think You Are a Good Person?
Just like most people, I am basically good. I make my fair share of mistakes. I’m lazy. I procrastinate. I annoy people now & then. But I don’t kill people/animals/insects intentionally. I don’t hurt people on purpose. I mind my own shit and stay out of people’s way. I go all out to help people. I want to see people win. I want the best for everyone in the world,not just my own country. I am open minded, accepting, tolerant, empathetic, loving…. I don’t discriminat unjustly against anyone for any reason including skin color, ethnicity, religion, disability, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, physical appearance, weight, political views…i guess I’m sort of perfect. in my own way.
6.) How Old Are You?
(You shouldn’t just open your ID and do some math. It’s not the number of years since you’ve been born that matter here. But mostly how old do you feel you are. What’s your perceived age. Because, believe it or not, this is your real age.)
I’m an adult but deep in my heart I’m just a girl. I find wonder & beauty everywhere I look. I get ecstatic over the color pink, rainbow sprinkles, teddy bears & hearts, puppies, glitter, rainbows. I am thrilled just to be. Child -like & full of wonder & awe. But child-like & youthful isn’t the same as immature. I can be immature though occasionally! ;-D
7.) Who’s Your Best Friend?
(Do you have one? Is he or she still alive? Write his name and think at that person for a while. Write a short description of he or she. Where did you met first time? What were the circumstances? What makes that person your best friend, after all?)
I never had many friends since I was a teenager. But I have been blessed through the years with a couple good ones. And I have hope that in years or days to come I will be blessed with new ones as well as the old ones. Other than my fur/ feather friends, two of my good friends are Mike & Christine. I met them in college at an lgbtq support/rights event/group for lgbtq students and their supporters. I get to see Mike quite frequently. I love how they are understanding, accepting, fun, and just great friends. I’m blessed.
8.) How Often Do You Laugh?
(Try to remember exactly how often do you laugh during a day. Is this a difficult thing? Why? Because you laugh so often that you couldn’t remember when was the last time you didn’t had a good laugh? Or because you simply forgot how it is to laugh?)
It is a difficult thing to know exactly how often I laugh because I laugh so much I can’t remember not being so easily amused. As a little girl I would get in trouble in school for laughing at kids being bad. I laugh over everything & nothing. My mom gets angry because I laugh at “inappropriate ” things! Lol ;-D. I have a few good belly laughs a day! I amuse myself & laugh at myself. I’m a light – hearted, simple girl. I don’t laugh at other people’s expense though. I’m not cruel or negatively sarcastic. Or thoughtless.
9.) Do You Think You’re Strong?
(I would be really curious to know the answer to this one. I love strong people. They have this power to change their life and to create incredible things. What “strong” means to you? It’s a question of force? Or endurance? Of speed? Or intelligence?)
I’m not physically strong. I don’t have much muscle/built muscle. I’m kind of on the thin side. I have become very strong, emotionally though. I struggled with severe depression for most of my life and have turned my life around, strengthened myself, worked on my own personal development and love all that I am. I can handle pain, problems, destructive criticism, betrayal, loneliness, and challenges very well, positively, and often even ready for the challenge to be tackled. I now see opportunities for growth & development & creativity in pain & struggles where I once saw bleak hopelessness. To me, true strength, means being able to realize when we need help in some way, seeking it, staying positive that things will eventually work out well, having hope, and still finding joy & gratitude, even through pain, having a strong will and desire to live no matter what.
10.) What Was The Most Important Thing You’ve Done So Far?
(Have you really done something important? Something that changed your life fundamentally? Or something that changed somebody else’s life fundamentally? Why was that important? Answer with first thing that pops out in your head.)
Some of them are Healing my depression & inspiring people, giving animals a sweet, loving, furever home. Being a friend.
11.) What Was The Most Stupid Thing You’ve Done So Far?
(Do you consider you’ve done stupid things in your life? I think everybody does but not everybody admits that. Most of the people blame the circumstance, the karma, the others, everyone except them. Do you have the power to accept you’ve done a really stupid thing?)
I have done the dumbest things at work & learned my lesson well. I am extremely trusting and trusted the wrong people, giving hundreds of dollars of my bosses money away to someone who lied to me. It could have cost me my job but luckily my boss let me stay. Also I have done other dumb things which could have resulted in serious consequences but did not, thankfully. I don’t believe in karma or that circumstances are usually stronger than me. I believe in choices. I believe in me. That lady shouldn’t have lied and tried to steal. But she did. She wasn’t responsible for my bosses’s money. I was. It was I who allowed her to take it. I take full responsibility for all I am truly responsible for. I am where I am because of choices I, myself, have made. The choice to do nothing is still a choice. I have the choice to react positively or negatively. This thought empowers me. I take responsibility but not in a “feeling guilty” way but in a way where I know that I have power for myself, admit when I make mistakes or can do better.
12.) What Is The Best Thing That Could Happen To You Right Now?
(In this exact context, what’s the only thing that could shift your entire existence if it will manifest right now? Many people tend to give a certain amount of money as a number, but in my experience this will only maximize the problems, not making them go away.)
There are actually two things which I would love. To have more friends. I want a group of friends where we all love, support, and cherish one another. And I want a job as a peer specialist. I am very happy in general. This life of mine is quite beautiful but there will always be room for development. Always. And I don’t need a whole lot of friends like I used to think I do but as I have stated, humans are social creatures and crave loving, social relationships and I can really go for having a few more good friends! I don’t need friends to be happy with myself or be worthy. But it would help the social aspect of this life of mine. And an amazing job helping others! :-D. I feel great things coming my way! Yes, please!
13.) Name The Thing That Annoys You The Most
(Is this a mosquito humming? The sounds of a knife on a porcelain plate? Or is it people calling you in a certain way? Friends breaking promises? Being stuck in traffic? Try to remain calm while answering.)
I’m not easily annoyed, I’m very easy -going, easy to get along with. But one thing that does annoy me is when it seems people try too hard to come off as “cool” or “bad” when they aren’t really that way. That attitude comes very naturally to some people which doesn’t annoy me at all but for some it seems so forced. I also can’t stand hiccups. They annoy me to the point of anger sometimes.
You know what I DON’T find annoying? Which many, many people do?! The duck face!! Lol!! The girly duck face! And when girls do that right, it can actually be quite sexy! Go girlies! <3. I think I only ever did this once on purpose in a pic and that was before it became a trend. But I don't quite have it down. Not yet! 😉
So I got these questions here. http://www.dragosroua.com/33-questions-for-an-interview-with-yourself/ It’s a self interview. There are about 33 questions but I only answered the ones I felt like. I definitely don’t mind answering them all but for some, the answers are so simple or obvious/ I write it so much here in this blog I did not feel like answering at this moment. But no question is off limits. And some I felt like just aren’t worth answering at the moment. I’m sick with kidney pain and that’s that. Lol 😉
I hope you all are having a beautiful day/night! Much love & blessings to you all! And hugs!
