Okay, today’s questions are just random ones I couldn’t otherwise categorize, so enjoy!
It seems like you traveled and moved a few times. Where are all the places you have you been and lived? Do you speak different languages?
I’ve traveled a lot. True story. I’ve traveled a lot in the states so I don’t think I’ll even bother telling you where I’ve been because the list would be ridiculous and only exclude a few states. (But I have been to Puerto Rico, hehe.) Internationally I’ve traveled throughout Austria, Italy and Honduras, and to Greece, Hungary, Czech Republic, Germany, France, England, Belgium, and Mexico. I’m hoping next year to get to Australia, New Zealand, and Canada. Woohoo! Because of these travels I speak a little bit of Spanish and even less German.
As far as places I’ve lived, most of my life has been spent in various places in Tennesee: Franklin, Tn; Grantham, NH; Millington, TN; Memphis, TN; Jackson, TN; Salzburg, Austria; Cordova, TN and Ludlow, VT.
What is the coolest thing you have learned from blogging?
What is the coolest freebie you ever got from blogging?
Coolest thing I’ve learned from blogging is that there are people out there who are going through the same thing I am. It’s strange, but when you don’t have anyone near you going through similar things you feel very lonely and odd. You feel like you are the only one in the world with certain problems and you feel bad about yourself because you have those problems. Thanks to blogging and just the general power of the internet I’ve realized that isn’t true and there is a whole lot of people out there who have similar issues and and doing similar things. It’s nice to have the support.
Coolest freebie? I don’t know. I’ve gotten a lot of cool things from blogging but nothing really free pops to mind. I mean, I did get a freaking awesome gig at Green Mountain and a boyfriend via my blog, so I can’t even compare freebies to that. Although I’ve gotten some cool food products to try out before – yum, yum, yum.
And a cool question from Jen(@bwjen):
You seem to be such a southern girl….where and how did you get into snowboarding? I am kinda klutzy so I have never even gone skiing! The closest I get to the slopes are on the tubes! lol! Give me the snowboard experience!
I am a Southern girl, despite my barely noticeable accent. And while we do have mountains on the other side of my state I have never been on them. My first year in college my college church group went on a ski trip to North Carolina and I decided to snowboard. It was a terrible experience. I didn’t learn how to stop myself until the third day so I spent a lot of time falling, trying to pick myself up, and feeling miserable. Finally I got a lesson from an awesome dude who was teaching another girl on her first day and once I learned how to stop and lean back into the mountain it all fell into place. The last half day of my first trip was pretty cool even though I was tired.
I went on a couple more trips with my church group, twice to Colorado where I’ve boarded at Keystone, Breckenridge, and Vail. When I went to Austria it only snowed twice and the second time we went to some resort in the Austrian Alps. I’ve mastered carving but I’m not good at jumps because they make me nervous. However, I’ve done a few and I’ve also done a few rails with one ending badly with me and a painful tailbone. Generally I just stick to carving down the mountain enjoying the experience. I try to go at least once a year for a couple days… this year hopefully I will be snowboarding at the mountain I’ve been staring at for the last two months.
Snowboarding is one of my favorite things in the world. I really, really enjoy it.
And finally, JackSh*t asked me:
How many miniature Three Muskateer bars could you fit in your mouth at one time?
Hope you have a terrific Tuesday! And to satisfy my own curiousity:
