I stumbled upon this post from Millennial Life Crisis, and I was inspired to write my own. It’s also been a while since I last posted, so enjoy it. Feel free to answer them yourself! 🙂
“73 Questions With” (Blogger Edition)
1. What was the name of the first person you ever had a crush on? Why did you like them? Can’t recall exactly, but it was on a girl named “K.” We went to elementary school together, and I remember she was a dancer and absolutely adorable with long silky hair. Always wanted to be around her, wanted to be her friend, only to realize years later that I was definitely not straight at all.
2. What is one thing you regret having done or not done in your life? Currently can’t think of one, although I’ve had various regrets before.
3. Which parent do you identify with the most? A little of both my mom and dad.

5. If you could change your first name what would it be? I’m fine with the name I currently have.
6. Can you hula hoop? Yes, but it’s been a while.
7. What embarrasses you the most in front of other people? Blanking out when I am put on the spot.
8. Have you considered running for president? Nope, but maybe VP!
9. If you had to choose one thing you were most passionate about, what would it be and why? Travel, because of the feeling of being free and seeing so much beauty and terror in this world.
10. Who are you most envious of—real or fictional—and why? Don’t have a specific person that comes to mind– I try not to be jealous of other’s success, or at least use their success to push myself to my own success.
11. Where is the most beautiful place on earth and why? Tie between Iceland and Taiwan.
12. Are ghosts real? Nope.
13. Are aliens real? Maybe, as I’m sure that there’s some other lifeforms out there.

19. What’s under your bed? A yoga mat that I never use.
20. Have you ever prank called someone? Nah, that’s extra!

23. Why or why not? I have a job, but I don’t know if I’m cut out for it.

39. Is there something you wish you had said sorry for but never did? I’m pretty sure.
40. Have you been on your first date? If so, how did it go? That’s tricky to answer. I don’t recall ever going on dates, but looking back, some of the one-on-one “hangouts” had some romantic/sexual undertones to them. So I guess I’d say yes, and they were chill.

65. If you were presented with two buttons, one that allows you to go 5 years into the past, the other 5 years into the future, which one would you press? Definitely 5 years into the future: I already know what happened five years ago, and I’m curious to see where I end up later on!
