There are so many questions, this is ending up being a series, rather than two parts. Haha.
These questions are actually helping me. I'm still depressed as hell. But answering these questions has been a major distraction, which I desperately needed.
Jack W. asked, "Spirited Away or Princess Mononoke?"
I am ashamed to say I have not seen either of these!
"Kill Bill or Pulp Fiction?"
This one is tough...I feel like Kill Bill is one of the greatest action films ever made, but then again Pulp Fiction defined a new era of cinema...
I'm going with Pulp Fiction, for its sheer historical value.
Sarah asked, "What is your favourite book of all time?"
This sounds so freaking cliche, but I can't lie: Pride & Prejudice. I'm in love with Mr. Darcy. I want sisters. I am Elizabeth.
Lightning Bug's Butt asked, "What subject, if any, have you begun blogging about only to decide it was too heavy, deep, intimate or risqué, and then mothballed?"
About two years ago, I started blogging about my crazy family on here, but then stopped. I realized that no matter how angry I am at my parents, I don't want any of it floating around on cyber space for the rest of my life. I would never forgive myself when I got older and more mature.
Shannon asked, "What are three things you love about yourself and three things you wish you could change?"
Haha I can think of a million things I'd want to change! Well, the three things I love about myself include my writing skills, my long hair, and my smile.
The three things I wish I could change would be my height, my mind (if I had a photographic memory, life would be a lot easier), and my forehead (there is something wrong with it, which I can't quite figure out, but it needs to be changed).
Aimee asked, "What is your favorite trend that's surfacing?"
Ever since I was a kid, I have been in love with seventies fashion, so I'm really happy that style has returned. I was the weird kid in seventh grade who wore my mom's old bell bottoms. I wish I could fit into them now!
Sandy asked, "When are you coming to visit??? :)"
If I had money, I would be there right now! Seriously though, when I find myself in a better position, one of the first things I'm going to do is visit you & Barry.
David asked, "If one thing could make you instantly happy what would it be?"
One word: money. I know it sounds materialistic, but whoever said money doesn't buy happiness has clearly never been unemployed.
Dahl asked, "I know you have a boyfriend, but when did you get your first? Did you ever worry about never having one? (haha I remember your story about boyfriend in a box!)"
Believe it or not, I didn't have my first serious boyfriend until I was 21 years old. In high school, I only dated two guys who both turned out to be gay. During my first two years of college, I was severely depressed (much, much worse than now). I didn't wear makeup and I wore pajamas to class every day (and not in the cute way). It was during those two years of college I really thought I was never going to have a boyfriend or ever get married. I was so sad for various reasons and I honestly thought I was the ugliest girl in the world.
The sports editor at my college newspaper during my junior year was super hot. I had a huge crush on him. He kept asking me to write sports stories, which confused me because I don't know anything about sports. Finally, he confessed that he really liked me and wanted to ask me out. I was stunned. With no makeup and no cute clothes, somehow this handsome Egyptian guy wanted to date me!
We dated for almost two years. Falling in love for the first time actually dragged me out of depression. I started to care about my looks again. My obsession for fashion returned. I was happy. He ended up being a tool in the long run though. Haha. Obviously no big loss for me because I have Rian now.
Just Me asked, "How often do you nourish your body and spirit, and how do you do it?"
This is exactly what I need to work on, I'm afraid. I don't even know where to begin. If I had the answer to this question, I probably wouldn't let unhappiness swallow me up all the time...
Heather asked, "If you could live in one other city in the United States, where would you go and why?"
I really love San Diego. My dad let me tag along on a business trip he took there eight years ago and it changed my life. The weather and scenery are beautiful. The atmosphere is so much more serene than Los Angeles. I could very easily see myself living there one day.
"Who is your favorite haute couture fashion designer?"
I hate to sound so generic, but my heart will always belong to Chanel. For the past few years, I have been obsessed with Etro as well. I own more Etro clothing than any other designer. But would Etro be considered haute couture? Probably not officially...
"Three favorite stores to shop in?"
Forever 21, Anthropologie, and Urban Outfitters
Nicole asked, "What is your favorite movie of all time? Actually pick two. One that is your favorite and one that is your guilty pleasure."
My favorite movie is Girl, Interrupted and my guilty pleasure is Clueless.
The Factory asked, "Do you read other blogs when they come around your blog?"
I try to!
Twenty Something asked, "if money wasn't an issue, what you be doing right now?"
Traveling somewhere fabulous and glamorous, like Sri Lanka or Italy. If I won the lottery today, I would be gone tomorrow.
Chic 'n Cheap Living asked, "What is your dream job? Is there someone that can help you get it?"
Meri asked, "I want to know what you dream of doing, what you would do if you could do anything!"
I would be a prolific author, who gets paid millions of dollars to sit at home and write all day. I'm the only one who can help myself get there right now. Lord knows I'm trying...
...and more answers to be posted soon!
