Since I’m still in the midst of Blogger’s Block, I thought I’d let you into my head:
1. Leave me a comment saying you want to be interviewed. (I’ll take the first five or so, if there are that many of you interested.)
2. I’ll email you five questions of my choosing.
3. You update your blog with the answers to the questions.
4. You offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions. They will answer the questions on their own blog and carry on the process.
My questions are from one of my bestest blog friends:
Much More Than A Mom.
1. If you could have any job in the universe EXCEPT the one you have (and being a parent doesn’t count – this job has to pay in actual money), what would you do? What do you think would be most rewarding about it? Do you see any negative qualities to your dream job?
I think I’d like to be a free-lance writer. Over the past four years I’ve grown to completely love writing my blog and writing articles. In particular I’ve liked writing fitness based editorials, as it combines my love of writing with my love of fitness and will make great use of my B. Sc. in Kinesiology. (I bet you didn’t know that about me). The most rewarding part would be that I’d be combining a lot of my interests and allowing me more time to spend pursuing those interests and spending time with my family. The negative qualities? Finding work and getting paid well.
2. You are walking alone in the forest and come upon a meadow. In the centre of the meadow you find a box, about 6″x6″x6″. Inside that box you find something you’ve always wanted but never thought you’d get, and it’s not jewellery or money. What is it? Why did you think you’d never get it? How do you feel now that you have it?
I have to honestly say that I already have a lot of things I never thought I’d get: a wonderful hubby, two beautiful daughters (Sierra and Brooke), a nice 4 bedroom home, pool in the backyard, dog, etc… Much as I’m ambitious and want a more rewarding career, I do believe that I am truly living a dream. That said, inside the box would be a housekeeper/cook/nutritionist to keep my house clean and prepare healthy home cooked meals for my family and I. I don’ think I’ll ever have this because of the cost but it’s nice to dream. If I had this I’d feel free, happy, healthy and full because of the awesome food I’ll be eating that I didn’t have to spend the time cooking.
3. What do you see yourself doing in 20 years? You know, once the kids have moved out and/or are in post-secondary education (hopefully) and you can actually focus on yourself for a while.
I hope to be working part-time, spending my mornings golfing with my hubby or jogging then going into work for a few hours, then coming home to have a nice relaxed dinner by the pool, followed by a swim and a walk with my dog.
4. Define failure, for you.
Right now I feel like a failure – although I have a University degree and a ton of education in my field, I still haven’t been able to break in and get up from the bottom of the totem pole. I’m still the lowest rung on the ladder and we all know that the crap flows down.
5. Describe the very best friend you’ve ever had. We want to know everything. Are you as good a friend as he/she is or was? What makes you a good friend? What makes you a crappy friend?
I’m lucky to have 3 very very good friends. One calls me weekly and the other two check-in via email weekly. One I have been friends with since grade 3 (though she was in my Jr. Kindergarten class), the other one I met in highschool, and the third was my room mate in University. I love them because they “get” me. They understand my unique sense of humour and I have tons of fun with them. I absolutely do not deserve any of their friendships as I was an awful person in my younger years and didn’t appreciate my friends. I talked smack about them, and did some horrible things, but all three still love me, and I love them more than they’ll ever know. LYLAS KImmie, O and T!
