1. Picture the child you once were, what did that child do very well?
I was good with animals, good at imitating with my body- such as acting like an animal or following along the steps of an instructor in something physical like Taekwondo. I was good with my hands. Also, good at being invisible if I wanted.
2. What are you really good at now?
I'm good with animals still, and pretty much all the rest too. I haven't changed those things.
3. Did you ever expect love in return and not get it?
No, I haven't.
4. Who do you need to get in touch with because it has been so long?
I need to get in touch with my friend who I'm going to see at the end of July. Just to warn her that we'll be in the same place because I don't think she knows! I signed up for a "Wild woman" weekend rather impulsively, because it was free and we're going to learn to tie fishing flies and shoot guns or something. Not things I normally do, but what the heck.
5. What are your thoughts on this: “Every woman deserves her special day. I get that. But does it really have to cost so much fucking money? I mean, c’mon. If you’re serious about building a future with a guy, why bankrupt him?”
Maybe I'm too traditional, but don't the bride's parents pay for the special day? Mine did. I didn't bankrupt them, because they told me how much they were going to spend and it was my job to fit within that budget, including the honeymoon. Master and I had no money at all really back then, being college students. I don't think a huge wedding is a great idea, especially if you have to struggle to afford it or go into debt, and I recently read some study data that there is a trend towards the larger the wedding, the shorter the marriage. Overcompensating, maybe?
Bonus: What is your number one priority?
My Master and my kids. And myself. I get to have 4 priorities, I think.
