1. What is your happiest memory?
I think it was between the ages of 5 and 8 when I spent my summers with my grandmother. Every evening we would have dinner, eat junk food and stay up late watching old films. Klondikes and summer breezes still keep those memories fresh in my mind.2. What is the most important life lesson you've learned?
One of the lessons I've learned is everyone is born with something (a gift, a talent, a strength) which is meant to help other people and protect ourselves from the evils of the world.3. What is the most difficult decision you've had to make?
Deciding to wait a year to go to school. I'll be twenty-two years old when I go to college next year (I kind of feel old going to school so late XD) but it was a decision that had to be made because of the economy and the financial crunch my family found ourselves in.
It was a difficult decision that seemed like the Kiss of Death at the time, but since I'm going to wait a year, I've already set wheels in motion for things to happen. I've always believed that there's both a good side and a bad side to every decision. The positive to this decision is that I will be getting a job/growing my own "boutique" business and possibly moving out to be closer to school - I'll feel like an adult and not a person who graduated from home-schooling a few years ago and now is going to be in school again. I won't feel like an "eternal student."4. What is the best thing about your life?
I didn't realize it until my best friend told me once that with everything that has happened to me (which I don't dwell on often because I'm a person that keeps moving forward), I should be a statistic or a stereotype, but I'm not.
I am a very lucky person.5. What is the biggest challenging you're facing right now?
I have a few challenges going on right now - I'm going to get my driver's license in January and over this next year, I want to earn some income through my writing either by publishing a book (either traditional or online) or by writing from multiple "small" places with submissions. I'm also trying to get a job/grow my own "boutique" business *cough* which is currently swelldameink @ Ebay
and swelldameinc @ Etsy
