Saturday 9: Hey Nineteen
1. What was the best thing about being 19? I was in college, so I think the new found freedom was the best thing. I was finally in charge of dictating my life, and I loved it.
2. Where would you go if you wanted to spark your creativity? I’ve gone to a few different places, depending on what I wanted to spark. Nature sites, long drives to just let my mind wander, riding the subway to people watch and observe mannerisms. It honestly depends on how focused, or how free-form, I’m desiring to be.
3. Complete this sentence: I am embarrassed when… I do something that makes me feel stupid, regardless of whether it’s stupid to others.
4. Name 3 fads from your teenage years. Hypercolor clothes, Swatch watches, crazy colored mascara (I recall owning blue, purple, and yellow)
5. What’s the best birthday present you’ve ever had? It’s not technically a birthday present, but it happened four days after – so I think it counts. My engagement ring. :) A close second to that is my first cat, Colley.
6. What’s your oldest possession? Packed away safely is my first-ever doll, a 1970s era Victoria doll from Madame Alexander. I’m pretty sure it dates back to my Christening. She still wears her original gown, although her booties are probably long lost. If we’re talking actual age of the item… we have a couple books in the house that date back to the 1860s.
7. Do you have any phobias? Heights – specifically of falling from heights, and large groups of people.
8. This is pretty much the start of Spring (regardless of the snow in the east this week!); what’s on your to-do list for the next few weeks to transition away from this long Winter we’ve been having? Giving my house a good scrubbing & airing it out, sorting through my clothes so I can make donations and give myself the excuse to buy new ones, and we’ll get our vegetable garden planted once the weather’s safe enough to plant (sometime mid-May).
9. Which of the 50 states in the U.S. would you rather die than live in? Florida – I’d be miserable there with the heat, but with all of the elderly residents, they seem to have plenty of resources for those who are dying. At least I could hope to find a place to be comfortable.
