Dec 17: You’re a mean one, Mr. Grinch

What is your least favorite personal quality in others? Extra points for sharing your least favorite personal quality in yourself. My least favorite personal quality is neutrality and passiveness. I always live by this quote, “If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything.” I get that you’re not going to have an opinion…

Nov 20: Safety first

Share the story of a time you felt unsafe. I can remember two things right now. I like travelling by myself and while I enjoy it, there are times when I did feel unsafe. Maybe it was just my paranoia but honestly, when you are a woman, this is a normal feeling. The first one…

Oct 19: Home sweet home

When you’re away from home, what person, thing, or place do you miss the most? I don’t miss home at all. Is that bad? LOL. Well, I spend most of the year at home so when I’m traveling, I just don’t miss it. I always dread the day that I need to go back home….

Oct 7: Exhale

Tell us about a time when everything seemed to be going wrong — and then, suddenly, you knew it would be alright. The first thing I thought of was when I was applying for a new job before I got my current one. I was at a really low point in my life and I…

Oct 4: The clothes that (may) make the (wo)man

How important are clothes to you? Describe your style, if you have one, and tell us how appearance impacts how you feel about yourself. I love clothes. I always say that the only thing I will probably leave to my children (if I ever have them) are clothes and shoes. LOL. I have a huge…

Sept 19: Are you being served?

What’s the most dreadful or wonderful experience you’ve ever had as a customer? The first thing that popped into my head as a wonderful experience was during our trip to Fukuoka in 2018. My friend, Celine, and I have been doing these birthday trips every November for a few years now. So during this trip,…

Sept 18: Naked, with black socks

Are you comfortable in front of people, or does the idea of public speaking make you want to hide in the bathroom? Why? I hate public speaking. I just hate the idea of being in the middle of the room where there are people listening to me and looking at every move I am making….

Sept 12: Toy story

What was your favorite plaything as a child? Do you see any connection between your life now and your favorite childhood toy? Just like most girls, I played with Barbie dolls. They were a staple toy for girls and I got them as presents from my parents. I was lucky enough to have about 4…

Sept 4: I am a rock

Is it easy for you to ask for help when you need it, or do you prefer to rely only on yourself? Why? I am definitely a rock. I have always been independent, so I hate relying on other people for anything. I just hate the feeling of bothering someone no matter how big or…

Aug 30: A little sneaky

Are writing prompts a useful exercise, or do you find them to be too limiting and/or hokey? I do think that it is a useful exercise. I started doing these writing prompts because I want to write more and post more on this blog. But you know, sometimes, there is just nothing to write about….

Aug 24: These boots were made for walkin’

Tell us about your favorite pair of shoes, and where they’ve taken you. I’m going to deviate a little bit from the question and just talk about my favorite pairs of shoes! I have never talked about shoes on this blog before. I remember doing something like this when I was on Multiply and that…

Aug 19: On the edge

We all have things as need to do to keep an even keel — blogging, exercising, reading, cooking. What’s yours? This is very timely question, because we are living in uncertain times and it’s so easy to go crazy! I go through it every now and then, and usually takes a few days before I…
