My wounded knees are living proof that as a kid, I took my games seriously. Whenever I played tag for instance, my competitive nature would take over and I was always determined to win. That was more of a priority than having fun.
Fast forward to today, I’m participating in a blog game, but it’s not at all about winning. I guess it’s about deriving a sense of fun from revealing things about another person. My blogger friend Joy from Catharsis tagged me, and has tasked me with answering the following questions which seek to divulge certain aspects of my personality.
What is the thing that makes you want to get out of bed each day?
The urge to go to the bathroom. Really.
What do you tell yourself to get through painful, difficult, or challenging times?
This too shall pass.
What can you look back on and remind yourself you were successful at, or were strong enough to come through?
The divorce (in my case, annulment). I came out of it unscathed, and stronger.
Look around you at this moment and choose one thing to smile about or be thankful for. What is it?
Without batting an eyelash, it’s my daughter. She’s everything to me… more than everything.
If you could do anything at this moment to make yourself happy, what would it be?
I’d dance to any Janet Jackson song. Or maybe do a mean Roger Rabbit to the tune of Ice Ice Baby.
Do you have a special place, real or imagined, where you go to in your mind or reality to regroup, seek peace, or just be?
Yes, the bathroom.
Has there been a particular book that you have read that inspired or motivated you to seek your potential?
Oh, The Thinks You Can Think by Dr. Seuss.
What childhood fable, fairytale, or movie stretched your imagination and sticks with you today?
Nothing comes to mind, sorry. Does Ghost (starring Demi Moore) count?
What is your favorite form of art and artist (anyone and anything you consider art qualifies)?
I love 80’s music. But lately, my daughter has managed to convince me that Katy Perry and One Direction are formidable artists.
Do you have a personal anthem, a song, that reminds you of who you are and want to be, that represents the ideal of you?
Borderline by Madonna. I sometimes feel I’m on the brink of losing it.
What did you experience while answering these questions?
I felt like going to the bathroom.
Now, I must pass on the torch to these bloggers who must answer the same questions:
Czjai of The Rebel Sweetheart
Roshni of Big A Little A
Ana Karen of A Blog of Chips & A Jar of Dip
