1. When do you feel happiest?
when i’m creating something (painting, writing, taking photographs, etc), when i’m spending time doing something fun with the hubster, when traveling.
2. How do you take care of yourself?
i walk/jog two miles most evenings. this is something i’ve started in the last few months, and i hope to be able to work up to running longer distances eventually. i’m trying to eat healthier. i’ve banned fast food unless absolutely necessary, and i’m making the transition into becoming a vegetarian.
3. Are you internally (by yourself) or externally (by others) motivated?
a little of both. i have to admit that i have a little bit of a rebellious nature, though. more often than not, the more someone wants me to do something, the more i want to do the opposite. however, i live for praise & acceptance. but the best motivation for me is to feel proud of the work i’ve done. i am my own worst critic, so when i do feel proud of something, i know it’s good. lol
4. What do you do for fun?
write, read, travel, shop, swim, draw, paint, craft, collage (art journal), sing & dance (mostly when i’m alone! lol), watch old movies…
5. What intimidates you?
crowds, speaking in front of large groups, meeting new people, sharing my creative work with others (especially those i consider far more talented than myself).
6. What is something you’re proud of?
i’m proud of how my creative talents have grown over the years. taking a drawing class has definitely changed the way i look at things. and while i thought that i was a decent doodler before, i know my abilities have grown so much.

9. Today is a (rate from 1 – 10).
hmmm…i’ll give it a solid 8. i haven’t done much yet, even though it’s already 3pm…heh… i slept in, did a little laundry, and i’m getting ready to shower & go to the verizon store, starbucks, and photography class. nothing too exciting. p.s. i might give it a 9 if it was sunnier out. 😉
10. Finish this sentence. If you knew me really well you’d know _____________
