Unresolved arguments keep me from getting a good night’s sleep. I absolutely hate feeling as if someone is going to bed feeling mad or upset with me. It sucks, and it’s even harder to sleep if the argument came from a place of misunderstanding that wasn’t really resolved. For someone to be upset over something that was misconstrued? Ugh! No way!

If I was given $100 under the condition that I had to spend it all on myself, I could oblige. I would spoil myself at the mall with a new outfit, new shoes, or maybe even makeup. If nothing really catches my eye at the mall I’d spend it all at the bookstore because I NEVER have a hard time spending money on new books and journals.

List 25 things you will never do.
My bookshelf is full of hobby items! I have books to read, as well as journals to write in. I have rocks & bouquets from some of my hikes. There is a pile of schoolbooks from EMT school, as well as some notebooks that I will be taking to graduate school. I even have a box of craft supplies, as well as my camera & computer equipment for my vlogs.
What kinds of items fill your bookshelves?
I don’t really have facial hair, since I’m female. I’d have peach fuzz at most; but I LOVE facial hair on men. It just looks so rugged & manly. Even if it’s just weekend-scruff. There’s just something natural & human about it. Groomed facial hair is cool too, but I wouldn’t expect everyone to want to put in that kind of effort on their appearance all of the time.
Do you like or have facial hair?
Right now my favorite TV series is Grey’s Anatomy. It’s fun and dramatic, and I also enjoy watching all of the surgeries! I hope to be working in a hospital like Seattle Grace someday, even if life isn’t going to be as big-screen amazing as the TV show.
I think that more people should watch shows that inspire them, as opposed to watching reality TV garbage.
What is your favorite TV series?
I definitely prefer taking risks over having a safety net. Risks are a great way of exploring something new or pushing yourself outside of a comfort zone. Personal growth lies outside of the comfort zone, and it’s important to me to continuously grow as a person so that I can be good to myself as well as those around me.
Taking risks, like moving across the country, have been my best experiences.

Right now, spending money on my cousins is worth it. I love going to the Dollar Tree or somewhere, and picking up either toys or treats for them. Something as simple as popsicles or squirt guns makes them so happy, and it’s nice to treat them to a little bit of extra fun every once in a while. And in the words of my stepdad Walt “It’s nice to buy gifts for people who appreciate them.”
