I can’t believe that I’ve hit 1,000 followers here at my li’l spot on the WWW! Thank you SO MUCH to those of you who support me and always comment with the right words to make me feel better when I’m down. Also, a big thank you to those who just read my mumbo jumbo on the daily… even if you don’t comment, I know you’re reading. Silent support means a lot to me, too. ❤
I was contemplating on if I should do a Q&A or a giveaway when I hit this milestone aaaand I decided… that I’ll be doing a giveaway for my blog’s first birthday, in August, and for this (hitting 1,000 followers); I’ll answer the questions on ALL of the award posts (with questions) that I have piled up.
Questions from Key at Aesthetikey – A Mystery Blogger Award
1. What kind of blogger are you & why (i.e. lifestyle, beauty, travel, etc.)?
I’d say I am a personal blogger. I blog about whatever I want to.
2. What’s your favorite song at the moment?
This is the hardest question, ever, isn’t it? Ugh. I can’t pick. Sorry.
3. What bloggers do you look up to?
Jad at Sensuality, Sex & Something Else because she’s been through so, so much and is still the strongest woman, ever and she has a great sense of humor. She always reminds me not to be so hard on myself. Julie at Julie H Cares because she’s made a goal to work out and get in shape and she’s pushing through and working hard every single day to actually reach her goals. She has improved her eating habits and fitness routines and it’s truly inspiring and she never fails to find the right words to encourage me/make me feel better. Todd at Serendipity, Encouraged because he has such an open mind. He’s always looking to learn new things and he invents fun ways to motivate himself to do daily tasks. I really look up to the strong relationships he has with his partner and his son. Rossy at AyR Galaxy because she’s a stay at home mom (and she’s obviously great at it) and that’s seriously the hardest job in the world! I also look up to her for her makeup skills and her blog graphic making skills. Britney at Surrealistique because she just bought her own house!! She has her own personality and sense of style. She doesn’t do anything just to fit in. She is that rare kind of person who is simply herself. Noriko at Diary of a Book Fiend because she is able to a read a TON of books in such a short amount of time and is able to express her thoughts into such articulate, entertaining reviews without giving away too much about the story. She also has a similar interest in books as I do so a lot of the books on my TBR list were added because of her. And last but not least, Mia at Beautiful, Creative, Inspiring…Life because she’s only 18 years old and she is killing it in the blogging, social media, and career game. I was a such a mess at 18, I wish I was even half as business-minded as she is.
4. In five years, what do you hope to be doing?
Oh my gosh. It will be 2022… how weird is that? I’ll be 27. I have no idea what I hope to be doing. I hate to think about the future. Maybe I’ll be working in a fancy casino on the strip or going to a community college for something and paying for it by dancing still. Who knows?

Following and keeping up to date with porn stars on Twitter, haha.
