Tell us about your first bicycle or car?
My first bicycle was too big for me! I couldn’t actually even use it in the end. My feet didn’t even touch the ground! I did end up getting a bike a couple of years later that I could actually use. I swear I was just thinking about this the other day. There was this one time our Dad made my brother and I cycle for the longest time. He was going through a health kick himself.
What fictional world or place would you like to visit?
Without question, I think I have said this a gazillion times. I would LOVE, not just like, Tolkiens world to visit. Either the book world or the movie. I love both of the worlds (even Tauriel included). It’s one of the reasons I want to learn to draw, I am very visual person. I could totally imagine myself being in that world, I literally have dreams about being there.
If you could have someone follow you around all the time, like a personal assistant, what would you have them do?
In all honesty, they would probably be driving around a lot. Picking things up, getting me food. I would totally love that! There would be a lot of driving involved.

Share Your World … January 15, 2018
Complete this sentence: I’m looking forward to….
the rest of 2018…After the start to 2018, I feel like it can only go up…right? I have the opportunity now to do something else with my life. Not panic and look at doing the things I’ve been putting on in the background and bring them to the front!
What is your favorite comfort snack food?
- Nacho Cheese Doritos
- Chocolate chip cookies
- Yogo Yoghurt
- Chicken flavoured Twisties
My favourite comfort snack food can also be dependent on what I need to be comforted about.
What was one of your first moneymaking jobs (other than babysitting or newspaper delivery)?
My first paying job was a call centre operator, and I never want to go back to that! I am serious, I would rather strip than go back to that!lol…People over the phone can be so nasty!
What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
I went back to work this week. I haven’t been to work since I had my panic attack. The morning, I was a little wobbly…but as the day progressed I became better. My brain is inspiring me this week =D
This or That? #72
This week Bookmark Chronicles would like to know:
Did you have a favorite book as a kid? (before the age of 13)
If so, what was it and what was it about?
There is really only one book that instantly came to my mind when I saw this weeks question.
Linnea in Monet’s Garden (Amazon Link)
I still have this book and it is still one of my favourites and I hope to pass it on to my children. The reason it was my favourite childhood book wasn’t even because of the writing though, or even the most gorgeous pictures (it is about Monet after all). I’ve also always had a soft spot for Monet, because of this book.
The reason I loved this book so much was because I could have sworn that the book was about my Great-Grandfather, who I was incredibly close too, before he passed away. I honestly believed that Monet WAS my Great Grand-Father and I so I thought that this book was about us. I can’t even remember who actually gave it too me, it was probably my Grandmother (his daughter) as she was a Librarian, but I couldn’t swear to that.
It probably sounds really sad, but it’s the first book I can remember and it was the first book that also got me reading.
Share Your World … Week 39
Just a note from Cee’s Photography:
“For the next three weeks the questions are from kids. The Happy Quitter wrote me this weekend and told me about her workshop she does for neighborhood kids and the some of the kids had some suggestions for the Share your World challenge. I realize there are more than 4 questions so feel free to answer all or only 4 questions.”
- What’s your favorite comic figure and why?
My favourite comic character would have to be “The Archies“. I have been reading those comics since I was a child. In this crazy world, I have access to so much that I am able to purchase a lot of Archie things lately. I know a lot of people would probably be a little shock since Harley Quinn could be classified as a ‘comic character’. I am just trying to look at this as purely comic characters.
- Name something you wish you could like.
I wish that I could like things straight away as soon as they come out, like the normal people do. I’ve always had this thing if people are pressuring me or pushing me to like something, to watch something, I pretty much will instantly hate it. Whenever a new show comes out and everyone is pushing for you to watch it the moment it comes out. I wait a whole season and THEN start watching it,lol…I think it’s really freaky that people will just push and push you to watch a show, like their life depends on who gets to watch the show the fastest.
- Tell me about your first crush / first date / first kiss.
I remember my first non-celebrity crush, I still remember what he looks like…And I still like to point out that I had a crush on him first before Hanson came out,lol. I still remember thinking how gorgeous he was, with his long flowing blonde locks, he was the first boy I liked who was a blonde. Then I find out he drove a mini and he had me.
- What sign are you? Do you believe in astrology?
I am a Taurus (The Bull). I do to a certain degree, I do believe that they give us certain characteristics. I mean if you were too look up what it “means” to be a Taurus, you’d probably find that’s pretty much me. Even the personality trait for wanting the finer things. While I generally am known for being happy with my lot, somehow whenever we go shopping. I can always pick out the most expensive item. It’s a little knack, that I can never afford!
My Mum is heading off tonight on a overseas trip for the next couple of weeks and I am not sure whose more excited, her, myself or my Gran who is going overseas with her. My mum and Gran are going overseas mainly to celebrate my Gran’s Aunty 90th birthday and it’s the first overseas trip for my Mum.
I’m mainly excited because I get the house to myself for a bit. I am so going to experiment with so much food!…It’s a long story but pretty much my family think that I can’t cook >.< A very long story that wasn’t even my fault, can I just say…That’s a story for another day though!
On a completely different path I am actually really excited for my Mum. I think she’s going to have a great time even if she is she is going through the UK’s winter time. I am hoping that it will motivate her and kick her butt into gear. Makes her want to make seriously needed changes in her life!
That first Winter night,
That first time you put on that familiar jumper you’ve had for years,
That first warm bubble bath, that you never want to come out of,
That first time you have to wrap the towel around to keep warm.
The first time you put on that heater
and wrap that warm blankie around you, falling asleep, warm on the couch,
The first warm cup of hot chocolate, warming all of your insides,
The first hot shower you have after running to get home in the rain, soaked through.
It’s what I’ll have to count on during these next few months…
