About ten days ago I let you ask me and here are a few of my answers to you. Finally.

Thanks for participating, all of you!

Christianna - What is your comfort movie? Like the one you watch when you can't sleep, are sick, need a good pick me up....

me:
It certainly depends on my mood, but my most favorite comfort movie is A Lot Like Love.
There are times I also watch Sleepless in Seattle, Fried Green Tomatoes, Turner & Hooch3 Men and a Baby, or just Big and smile from ear to ear when they dance/hop around that gigantic keyboard.
My comfort movies are easy, those movies you don't have to think too much into it, and especially when you're sick you don't want any of that! And if you haven't noticed, my comfort movies besides just one are from the 80's, early 90's, and include lots of Tom Hanks. Ha! ;)

Ashley - Tell me all the places you've lived and traveled to :)

me:
The places I have lived in include Switzerland, Trinidad and Tobago (when I was very little), and California (north and south).

All the places I have traveled to are: Turkey, Spain, Portugal (just Lisbon), Italy (Como, and various little towns in north Italy), France, Germany, Austria, Amsterdam, London, Kos, a quick trip to the Czech Republic (but really that doesn't count!), and Switzerland (obviously! BUT I haven't seen everything).

...then oh yeah the US...almost forgot about that one... ;)  Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Florida, Louisiana (only the northern part though!), Missouri, Illinois, Nevada, and California.
I have been to Phoenix and Houston airport only...so that may not count! ;)  

I could get into details, like which cities in which European country etc, but this would be awful. And I really don't wanna bore ya, besides, did you see? I haven't seen a lot. Never fully made it to Asia or Australia (yet!).

Kelsey - What's your favorite thing about living in Southern California?

me:
I would be lying if I didn't say the weather. It is however mainly the feeling I get when I think of all the many options I have here. I know that one day I can be by the beach, and the next in the mountains, or even see and walk on snow. I get to walk and have iced drinks in the middle of the winter, and wake up They not only make me wake up every morning, but also enjoy every moment. I feel happier here in Southern California - as cheesy as this may sound...but it's so true!

Jennifer - Where would you love to travel to that you've never been to? 

me:
On top of my list is Japan. Why? For many reasons...I have a lot of friends from Japan, and I even have someone in my family from Japan. She's one of my best friends and understands me no matter what. Besides all this, for almost 20 years I've been fascinated with that country and its culture...so why not?! Really.
But of course...I'd also love to go to Australia, and Ireland. :) 

Anonymous #1 via email - I know you are single, and since I recently split up with the love of my life (or I thought he was the love of my life) I was wondering if you liked being single.

me:
This is a funny but interesting questions. There are times I absolutely hate being single; so much that I want to scream all kinds of nasty stuff so at least it's said and out there somehow. I want to have someone that I can come home to, I can cook with/for, surprise, laugh with, you name it...however, I also enjoy being single. I can do whatever I want to do (not that you can't when you're in a relationship!), and not think twice about why I'm booking a flight or why I'm driving to that one city without telling anyone. I don't have to share the TV, and I don't have to worry about "my other half" if he doesn't come home on time or whatnot. I love both sides, and right now I believe being single is what I have to be.

For all I know...once I'm back in a relationship...we're having two TVs! ;)

Anonymous #2 via email - are you back in school? Why? It's so awful!

me:
I admire your honesty here. I know going back to school isn't everyone's cup of tea and let me tell you it isn't easy and it wasn't an easy decision for me. I needed something else in my life than the redundancy of every day work. Not being fulfilled with what I had and with what I was doing was horrible. I worked, and earned money yes, but my brain needed more than this. I felt like I needed another degree, one step more in education and even if this doesn't work out I am learning. Every day I am hearing something new, something that teaches me about life, love, the past and the future...my brain loves it and I'm happy. School can be horrible, but it's really not that bad at all when you look at the big picture...the horizon that slowly opens up in front of your eyes...it feels amazing!

***************************************************************************************

This was fun!

And yes I know I owe you more pictures of when my friend visited, and all...I know. I suck.
But I am working on it...slowly!

Loved all of your answers! I haven't seen "A Lot Like Love" before. Maybe I should change that?

And you've been so many places, but I guess if I started making a list of places I had been it would get pretty long too.

Loved learning even more about you lovely...and I had no idea that you have been to so many places in Europe, even though it makes sense because you lived in Switzerland (still do kinda, lol).

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...
