At this moment, it's 7:56 p.m. The Eagles have just secured their spot in the second round of the NFL playoffs, and I'm wearing a hydrating, green tea sheet mask, relaxing on the couch with Mark.
I've been brainstorming ways to make this blog feel authentic to who I am and what I enjoy, and my mind wandered to the days of Myspace, and of Facebook notes, when people used to fill out surveys and post them for their friends and family to read, share, and answer themselves. Call me corny, but I have such a nostalgia for those middle and high school nights when I would log on to these platforms after finishing my homework, and answer questions that were mostly silly (those that were invasive got deleted).
Flash forward to this afternoon, and I thought to myself, why not take time out of my week to kick back, decompress, and fill out a survey for old times sake? Maybe I could even make this a mini series, or something I do on occasion just for kicks.
So here we are. As much as I love doing these surveys, reading them is also a guilty pleasure of mine. I'd love to see your responses, too! Give it a go in the comments below!
This or That
Mac or PC?
Mac for sure.
"Life is great" or "life can be better"?
For the most part, life is great, but certain aspects of life could be better. But, isn't that always the way?
I help others or I help myself?
I guess it depends on the situation, no?
Friends or family?
Well, my family comes first always. I do have a handful of friends who've become like family to me, though.
Fast food or home-cooked meals?
Home-cooked meals for sure. (I don't count sit-down restaurants fast food, though.)
Books or TV?
Vacation or staycation?
This or That Personality Traits
Book smart or street smart?
Ha! I am definitely more book smart than anything else. Though, I definitely think working in the city for a few years made me a tad more street smart than I ever was.
Leader or follower?
Being a part-time freelancer, I'm forced to take a lot of initative in my work. So, in that sense, I'd say I'm a leader. However, I can definitely be a follower, too. Again, it depends on the situation.
Organized or messy?
Introvert or extrovert?
I am a true ambivert. I like a lot of time to myself, and re-charge internally. Too much time by myself, however, and I crave company.
Night owl or early riser?
Early riser! The morning is my favorite time of day.
Planner or spontaneous?
I can be spontaneous, and have a lot of fun doing so once in awhile, but for the most part I thrive on a schedule.
Chatty or quiet?
It depends on my surroundings. If I'm comfortable with you, and know you well, I can talk for hours.
Focused or head in the clouds?
Rebellious or responsible?
Psh, please. I'm not sure I have a rebellious bone in my body. Responsible.
Easy or hard to please?
Both. Hey, "a girl's gotta have her standards."
Clumsy or graceful?
Soft spoken or outspoken?
Outspoken, I think?
Mainstream or out of the ordinary?
Both, in different areas of life.
This or That Celebrity Edition
Kim Kardashian or Kylie Jenner?
I like them both for different reasons.
Pink or Ke$ha?
Emma Watson or Emma Stone?
Ohh, I like both of them! But I feel like I grew up with Emma Watson, in a way
Kate Middleton or Meghan Markle?
My knowledge of Kate Middleton is extremely limited due to the fact that I'm not super interested in the royal family. I liked Meghan Markle when she was on Suits, and she seems to be doing well as a Duchess. Final answer? Meghan Markle.
Megan Fox or Angelina Jolie?
If I had to choose, Megan Fox. I'm not crazy about either one of them.
Nicki Minaj or Cardi B?
I could take or leave either.
David Beckham or Tom Brady?
I respect both of them! I think they're both extraordinary athletes. Plus, they have great taste in women.
Jake Gyllenhaal or Ryan Reynolds?
I've seen more Gyllenhaal movies, which isn't saying a whole lot, but I guess I'd go with him.
