I saw this a while back, and thought it was super interesting. It’s 73 questions & answers coming at ya. I thought I did this a while back, but I must not have because I can’t find it anywhere. Its based on a Vogue magazine with celebrities. Just like online video series, I am answering the first thing that comes to mind.
What is your favorite time of day? This is a toss up because I really love sunsets while we are traveling. If we aren’t traveling or together it’s morning because it’s so peaceful. I am usually the only person up, so it’s nice to have my own time before the day begins.
What’s your biggest weakness? Overthinking. I spend a lot of time thinking about situations in the past and future. It is something that I am currently on working through.
What’s the biggest learning experience you’ve had? It’s ok to ask for help. It’s really hard for me to ask for help. I saw it as a sign of weakness for the longest time.
What’s your idea of a perfect date? This is such a tough question because I just love quality time. Also I have become much more of a homebody. I like being at home and in my own space. During the baseball season, it’s anytime we can go out for dinner and talk.
What’s one vice you wish you could give up? Drinking. I wish I would only drink to celebrate. We do drink during the week or when we are upset.
What’s a cause that is important to you? Bullying. Adults bullying or being mean to other adults is so dumb. I absolutely HATE when I see it and I ALWAYS feel obligated to speak up. Everyone always tells me not my monkeys, not my circus. While I do get it, I feel like if I had more people stick up for me when I was bullied it would have given me more confidence.
What’s the best compliment you’ve ever received? I have 2 that come to mind. The first is always about my eyes. I have extremely blue eyes. They are really noticeable when I wear blue or cry. My eye color are almost glass blue color. I love it! The other is how much I care about people. I really do generally care about the overall well being of people. I have a small circle of friends, but in general I hate when people are upset or something bad happened to them.

We decided to go to the baseball games.
