Holy shit! I just realized I've gotten to 69,000 hits since setting up my counter here in August. I moved my blog to this link in June of last year. Then I set up the new counter in August last year once I found one I liked that didn't suck. Almost to 70,000! Crazy shit. Thanks y'all!
Seriously. I need help setting up a tag/label cloud. I was hoping Blogger would have one in their "Add A Gadget" thing in layout editing but nope, not as far as I saw. I tried using a couple different codes I found on some help sites but couldn't get it right. Any help would rock hard, thanks so much.
My friend BB asked me if she could do a blog interview with me and I said go for it. So, she thought up some questions for me, asked them, I answered and here they are. Oooh yeah.
1. Out of all the people in your life, who do you admire the most?
My dad. He's very hardworking. He listens. He will tell you straight up how something is and doesn't sugarcoat things. He can be a bit of an ass but I admire his honesty. I admire his hard work.
2. What has been the hardest decision of your life?
I've had some difficult ones to make. Ones that have kept me up at night because I just didn't know what to do. Ones that made me want to punch things and cry at the same time because I knew someone would be hurt any way that I went about it. Yeah, there have been some stressful, difficult ones but I don't want to mention any of those things in detail. I don't think I've had to make one that could be qualified as the "hardest" yet.
3. What is a decision that would have been the hardest had you actually had to make it?
Okay so I had to email BB and get clarification on the question to make sure I was answering this one right, lol. She explained it as this: "What I mean is in a situation that could have happened differently, how would you have handled it? Pick something that would have been very difficult to decide had it gone differently than it had." I'm still not sure I'm answering it the way she was hoping for but here we go.
I think the one time when I was 21 and thought I might have been pregnant could have been the hardest one. I was three weeks late on my period. Mine is very irregular and inconsistent as it is but it's never been that late and I've never flat out missed one before. I was at Boyfriend's house and we had gone to get some pregnancy tests. That was the scariest few minutes of my life and I think had I been pregnant, the following decisions would have been the hardest I've ever had to make.
Ironically, a while later when I was working and living with family, I was having anxiety issues worse than I normally do. I was trying to overcome an experience that still had too much hold on me. I was sick to my stomach and puking a lot because I was so damn anxious and stressing so much that I was making myself sick with it. My mom thought I was pregnant though and wanted me to take a pregnancy test because she seemed convinced that is what it was. I was so relaxed and didn't stress at all taking that pregnancy test because I knew there was no fucking way I was pregnant. My boyfriend and I hadn't been having sex at all. I did the test anyway just so my mom and family could know I really wasn't pregnant though. I laughed about it later because out of all the times I've taken a pregnancy test, (which hasn't been a lot but more than twice because I used to freak out about being a week late when I was younger and would think the worst instead of saying, *Duh you're cycle is irregular and crazy!*) that one was the absolute easiest because I just knew it wasn't it.
4. Do you get along with your boyfriend's family?
Yeah. I didn't get along with his mom at first but we had some mutual misunderstandings because neither of is knew the other and we both misinterpreted some things about the other. We get along great now. When I went to visit in November, she was so excited to see me. And at Christmas time, she spent too much money on stuff for me. His mama spoils me too. =) His grandmother is awesome and sweet. And feisty. I really enjoy sitting and talking with her. His sister and I get along okay enough. If I had to see her more, not so sure we would still get along so well, lol.
5. If you could be a fictional character from one of your favorite books, who would you pick and why?
Probably Anita Blake from Laurell K.Hamilton's Anita Blake books. I adore the shit out of the character. She gets to slay and go toe to toe with all kinds of supernatural beings. She's smart, sassy, strong, feisty. The personality of the character reminds me a little of myself in some ways. Plus, she's a fucking badass.
