Awh I love this! 

Age: 25

Location: NJ

Best vacation: Las Vegas

Last book you read: Confess by Colleen Hoover (the BEST book I’ve ever read)

Favourite food: pizza 

What makes you laugh: hmm Idk. I feel like I find most things funny, maybe too many things

Favourite song: That’s tough… I will say Mayday Parade and A Day to Remember are my favorite bands

Cat or dog?: I have a cat and I’m obsessed with her, she’s the sweetest pet I’ve ever had

Day or night?: Night

Coca-Cola or Pepsi?: Neither 

Fruit or Veg?: Fruit

Heels or flats?: flats. I can’t stand heels

Hot or Cold?: in the middle? I like when its hot outside but cold inside

Facebook or Instagram?: Facebook 

Mountains or Beach?: Mountains I guess. I love places where you can see palm trees and mountains 

What quality do you notice and admire in others?: When people are calm and Understanding

What skill/talent do you wish you had?: I wish I was good at doing my hair

How do you relax?: weight lifting, hitting a punching bag, watching tv

Your idea of a perfect day off?: sleeping in, having a good workout, and playing a fun game with my husband and friends 

What could you give a presentation on, with no preparation? Weight lifting/strength training

If you could live your life again, would you do anything differently. I wish I didn’t go to college. I got a degree in something I don’t even want to do and ended up leaving a job I LOVED for another job in order to make enough money to afford my loans. I don’t like my job, but luckily after my husband and I pay off some more debt we’ll be in a place where I can quit and be a stay at home mom when we have a child. I also wish I would have realized that ultimately I wanted to be a stay at home mom and I could have made better financial choices earlier in life

If you could live your life again, would you do anything differently? I would have studied in business rather than in arts, as that’s what I’m currently working in.

rendezvous89 :  I was born in Switzerland and in the region where German (Swiss German) is spoken in a Turkish household. So, I actually acquired 2 languages but I lost my bilingual status when we moved out of Switzerland.

I do speak German now in B1 level at least but it’s learnt instead of acquired (from birth till the the critical age).

asummerbridet7 :  Yesss I feel you on the college stuff. I always knew I wanted to be a stay at home mom (if I could) but I wish I’d just gone for early childhood development (I did elementary ed) and maybe been smarter with student loan stuff. Forever in debt with a degree I’m not using yaaayy…
