3 Things About Me
1) I have an obsession with teen soap operas! (BTW I just ordered five issues of the Entertainment Weekly’s Dawson’s Creek 20th Anniversary!)
2) I used to have an unreal obsession with the Hanson band for four years straight and I even got a rat tail that resembled Taylor Hanson’s! Only his rat tail was straight and sleek and mine was all wavy and frizzy! (Don’t judge my 15-year-old self!)
Yeah…Hanson would totally boo this look!
3) My dream is to go on a writing retreat somewhere in Europe! Ideally Florence because I just went there last year for my honeymoon and it’s freaking beautiful!!!
- Is there anything you’re proud of doing/achieving and what is it? I am proud of working on my masters and finishing in two years while working a full-time career!
- In your perfect dictatorship day-dream, which book would you ban and which one you’d give to the masses for free? This is a no-brainer! I would ban 50 Shades of Grey because it is completely sexist and anti-feminist! I was guilty of reading and once enjoying these books but over time I have seen the error of my ways! I would give the book Weetzie Bat, which is my favorite magical realism novel because it’s a book that makes you see the beauty of life and you can read it in one hour!
- If Edward Cullen bit you and you gained immortality, what would you dedicate your life to? After being properly disinfected and de-sparkled of course. I would dedicate my life to reading every dang book and eliminate my reader guilt of not reading popular books (Sarah J. Mass cough cough) and writing my novel of course!
- Imagine your ultimate reading moment – the setting, the time, the weather conditions, the chair coziness aspect, every bit. My ultimate reading moment would be to read in a vineyard located in Florence, Italy on a nice spring day, with a glass of wine in my hand, lots of pasta, and a comfy reading chair that overlooks the beauty of the vineyards!
- Why is a raven like a writing desk? Uhhh…say what?! Ok, I had to google this! Based on what I found it says that the bird’s wings flap up and down like a desk flapping up and down?! Maybe…eeek
