Getting To Know Each Other

I saw that Fran did a littler questionnaire from Holly's blog and I wanted to give it a try myself. 

1.  Would you rather never have internet access again or never be able to travel outside your home country again?

I had some wanderlust when I was younger and always dreamed of visiting Spain or Europe in general but never could. Then my husband and I got accepted into a teaching program where we could live in Spain and travel throughout Europe. It was a blessing be able to have that opportunity and we learned a lot from that experience! But ever since we came back in 2013 we've been happy to settle back into the USA and enjoy all the pleasures that comes with living here. So I would rather never leave my home country again~ 

2. What's your naughtiest habit during your working day?

I carve out some time on Mondays and lay out all my planning supplies and plan out my week. Oh and sometimes I work on editing some photos for the blog .///. 

3. Where do you do most of your people-watching? 

I guess lately it's been in classes. I like sitting in on classes and observing the students and teachers and the way they teach. I like seeing the dynamic of the modern classroom!

4. On average, what time of day are you most happy and content?

This is going to sound cheesy, but it's when Josh comes home >///> When he comes home I'm either making dinner, in the middle of laundry, cleaning or watching something trashy on tv. I feel like as soon as he comes home my day is practically over because we usually eat dinner, watch our show, then go to bed <3


5. What are some of your strangest pet peeves?

I don't like it when people blow their nose at the dinner table. I don't like seeing cups too close to an edge while eating, I always move them. I don't like it when Josh leaves his desk chair not pushed in the night before. I hate when my purse has things in it that I didn't organize myself. I hate when people don't excuse themselves before leaving the table. I'm realizing that most of these revolve around the dinner table. 


6. If you could choose, which decade would you have grown up in?

I wish I was a teenager in the 90's! Maybe even the 80's. I love music from then and there wasn't as much technology to worry about. But I would have slow internet and no Instagram so... TOUGH DECISION. But overall I like when I grew up. I would have hated being a teenager right now. Kids have it tough.

7.  Would you rather be Penny Crayon or have Bernards Watch? (apologies if this is a bit obscure - google it!)

I have no idea what this is omg


8. Where can you be found at a big house party?

With the puppies. At the food table. I don't do well around too many people.

9. Which talent do you most envy in others?

I would love to be able to brush off what people say more easily. I don't think I'm too sensitive, but I take a lot of things that people say to heart and get anxious very easily. I would also love to be able to naturally pick nice color palettes. I feel like I'm not good at choosing color combinations!

10. When and why did you start your blog?

I started blogging on Blogger in 2012 and moved over here in 2014 I think. I used to blog on Livejournal since 2005 but I don't really count that because those entries were more personal and it was more like an online journal that only a few people could read. I like blogging and sharing my processes with people and hopefully inspiring people to be creative. I like sharing parts of my life, but not all of it.

11. What are your goals for 2016?

I started this year knowing I wanted to live more creatively and I think I've been doing a good job with that, but I would like to do more! I want to update regularly on here and draw everyday for at least an hour. I would like to be more active and try more new things (like baking banana bread for the first time!) So I think it's going well~

I had a lot of fun with this! If you would like to do it as well, please leave a comment with your answers or a link to your blog! Here are the questions:
