  • Wedding: April 2018

Favorite TV Shows:  Hell on Wheels, Rescue Me and Walking Dead

Favorite Musicians:  Van Morrison, Nickel Creek, Etta James and Sarah Vaughn

Favorite Shops:  Nordstroms, Crate & Barrel, Tiffany & Co.

Favorite Food:  Japanese, especially sushi!  French Cuisine and Big Game.

Foods I Hate:  Anything where eggs are the predominate indgredient, I can deal with it, I just don’t want to taste it.

Religion:  N/A, I was raised in a house of intellectuals who valued personal opinions and knowledge, in fact reading was more important than eating in our house growing up.

Relationship Status:  So very married and loving it!

Who Do I Admire and Why:  Billy Collins, the US poet laureat, his work is beautiful, inspiring and simple, we could all take a page from his book.  Betty Davis only because she reminds me of my long lost, and fiery grandmother. My Grandfather, he’s a self made man, at the end of the day, we should all be so lucky.

What do I do for a living:  I’m an insurance broker.

Something I Love About Myself:  My rapier wit, intellect and sense of humor, they have served me well in my life and I adore being a person that can make others smile.

Something I Would Change About Myself:  Same things, being quick witted can become cruel in the blink of an eye, I use my sense of humor to avoid uncomfortable topics and as appreciated as that is, sometimes I wish I were brave enough to let an awkward or sad moment linger.

I’m a new bee and would love to make some friends

 

 

Favorite TV Shows:  Wow, I can only think of the remants of the ’90s, Friends. But my new favourite would be the Newsroom. I don’t watch TV much now, since traveling around. Guilty favourite, Gossip Girl

Favorite Musicians:  Again, the ’90s: Pearl Jam, Green Day

Favorite Shops:  H&M gets me excited everytime πŸ™‚ I like the style of Zara but I’m not skinny enough to pull it off, same goes for Mango. Other than clothes, I love grocery stores, haha!

Favorite Food:  Taiwanese street food! Any street food! Thai, Vietnamese, Japanese.

Foods I Hate:  Coconut shavings. the texture gives me the creeps.

Religion:  None. But if I have to choose, I’d go with Buddhism and get rid of all material things.

Relationship Status:  Engaged

Who Do I Admire and Why:  My FH, for keeping a cool head when I stress out. Though I’m considered calm, he’s even calmer and always makes me laugh.

What do I do for a living:  Hospitality

Something I Love About Myself:  Being able to adapt to most environments, travel anywhere and make the effort to fit in.

Something I Would Change About Myself:  I wish I can stop being so indecisive, constantly going back and forth on one little thing. It drives my sister up the wall. And I think it can be damaging to some relationships as well. I want to be able to make quick decision.

Favorite TV Shows: Big Bang Theory, Once Upon A Time, South Park, Family Guy, Colbert, Jon Stewart 

 

Favorite Bands/Singers: I am pretty all over the place with music preferences–I like most anything, but favorites of past and present include:  I like Death Cab for Cutie, Taking Back Sunday, Paramore, Yellowcard, Meg & Dia, Adele ….honestly anything fun with a cool beat gets me going …or I like really “poetic” lyrics and I love a band/artist that can do acoustic well. 

 

Favorite stores to shop at:  Target : ) Ann Taylor Loft, EXPRESS, GAP…outlets I enjoy the most. I love J. Crew but can not really afford a lot of that stuff on my current student teacher budget. 

 

Favorite foods:  Pizza, most any form of pasta, CHILI!!! I had this last night as my bday dinner. Yum. Ooh–mom’s Italian hamburgers. The best. 

 

Foods you HATE: uh there not a whole lot I am coming up with off the top of my head. Used to be mushrooms…and still is sort of. It depends on how its cooked. I LOVE stuffed mushrooms, but hate them on pizza. Too slimy. Also–  Mom’s potato soup…she normally avoids making it when I come home haha

 

Religion:  Catholicism 

Relationship status: Engaged as of June 2012. : ) I have been dating my wonderful FH for about 5 1/2 years at this point. I am ready to tie the knot and make our future together “official.”

  

Who do you admire, and why?   Ugh, tough question for the end of the day. My father and mother–for being a great example for my siblings and myself throughout the years. They have shown us what marriage is–tough sometimes, but worth the work. I will come back and maybe add something if I come up with something more intelligent to say. 

 

What do you do for a living?  Currently, I am making no “living.” I work very few hours that are paid–I am doing a student teaching internship. So full time job, no pay. BUT hopefully will get a paying job shortly!

  

What is something you love about yourself? I genuinely try to like everybody. I like to imagine myself in someone else’s shoes…I have an affinity for empathy. Not to say I am always perfect or treat everyone wonderfully all of the time–but I typically catch myself and fix it if I can. 

 

What is something you’d like to change about yourself?  I get really stressed out sometimes and forget to enjoy my life for what it is NOW…I am so afraid I am going to look back on my life and regret all the worrying I did haha FH is soooooooooo much better about this so I am glad I have him around to (metaphorically) knock me upside the head whenever I get too much into a “planning” the future mode instead of enjoying the present. 

@Kings7911:  Hope this is what you were looking for !! : ) Nice getting to know you !

Who do you admire, and why?  Firstly, I admire my mom and dad for different reasons. Both are extremely intelligent individuals–dad is more analytical whereas my mom is more creative and artistic. Both are familiy oriented and love the Lord. My mom is one of the most kind and caring people I’ve ever seen. Secondly, my pastor–he is a one of a kind man who is truly dedicated to the Lord. He never has judged anyone based on their morals or beliefs, and actually follows what he preaches.

I’m a great listener and a shoulder to cry on when needed. πŸ™‚ When someone asks me to keep a secret, I keep it! Also, my passion in life is to help others who are in need! 

 

What is something you’d like to change about yourself?  I’ve been way to trusting in people and wear my heart on my sleeve. There have been times in the past where certain individuals have deliberately taken advantage of my kind nature. I’m working on this.

  • Wedding: July 2012

Favorite TV Shows:  Big Bang Theory, The Voice & any cooking shows

 

Favorite Bands/Singers:  I would say Rascal Flatts, just because I actually like almost all of their songs. Its hard to find a band that makes more then a few good songs.  

 

Favorite stores to shop at:  I dont shop much because I’m a saver, so I usually go for the cheaper stores like Dots or Macys.

 

Favorite foods:  Spanish food!!!! (Which is why I love that my husband is Puerto Rican)

 

Foods you HATE:  Olives, Cucumbers, Cherrys & Shrimp

 

Religion:  ugh this is so difficult for me. I guess you could say I’m Christain. I havent gone to church since i was 4. I feel weird going to church or even watching it on TV, I guess because I dont understand anything, I have never even opened the Bible. I do believe in God, I just say I’m non denominational.

 

Relationship status:  Married πŸ™‚ 3 months

  

Who do you admire, and why?   I honestly don’t really admire anyone. I don’t have a hero, I dont look upto to anyone. Kind of sad now that I say that

 

What do you do for a living?  I am Administrative Sales Assistant. But my boss is currently wanting me to go to Web Deisgn school…so hopefully I’ll have a better future with that

  

What is something you love about yourself? hmmm…thats a hard question. I really dont know, ummm I guess the fact that I dont take crap from anyone, I dont let people push me around. 

 

What is something you’d like to change about yourself?  Ha the normal stuff…whole body image. But other then that I hate that I’m so emotional, if I’m watching TV and someone is crying I will start tearing up, its so lame. Also I’m scared of everything, I have lived a very “safe” life because I scared to get into trouble, Im scared to do things I have never done, if I think I will get hurt in anyway I wont do it. I have missed so much of life.
