When I first started blogging or facebooking or whatever, it was so popular to do these little self interviews. But I finally decided to put myself out there and try to meet some other bloggers from around Alabama, and actually try to get this blog up and going.
So here we go….
1. What part of the state do you call home?
I’ve lived in Birmingham for about seven years. Before that I called Auburn home for the entire four years. I am by no means a native, but pretty much consider this my home, since I’ve lived here the longest.
2. How long have you been blogging?
I started blogging when I started college in 2002. I started it off with easyjournal.com (which I don’t even know if it still exists), then went to xanga.com, and then found my way to Blogger. I was so embarrassed by the stuff I posted on my easyjournal site that I eventually deleted it all together. But if you search super hard, you can still find my xanga one! Although, I don’t recommend reading it, because it makes my head hurt.
3. Why did you start blogging?
Started blogging as a way to bring my friends together. We used to all journal from one account, and it was awesome. As I grew up and graduated and started living not so close to my family, I started using it as a way for them to see what was going on with me.
4. What do you love most about blogging?
I love that it allows me an outlet. Since I’m not too big and don’t have many followers, it allows for more personal information. Even if this did turn into a gigantic blog with a million followers, I don’t think I’d ever change that.
5. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I want to live in New Orleans. That’s pretty much the only standard I’ve set for myself.
6. What is your favorite movie?
Almost Famous or American Beauty. I love Kevin Spacey. I love the music in Almost Famous, and that the kid wanted to be a journalist, which was what I wanted to be in my former life. You know, before, the trucks and stuff.
7. If you could use any actress to play you in your life, who would you choose and why?
Anne Hathway, because she’s beautiful and awesome. I got nothing else on that one!
8. Name the top 5 things on your bucket list.
*Live in Spain for a year.
*Visit every SEC stadium to cheer on Auburn
*Own a rescue shelter. (of course on the barn that I will eventually have, too)
*Go to a Chicago Bears/Packers game. And of course root for the Packers.
*Learn how to blow dry my own hair so I look like a supermodel.
9. Who or what inspired you to blog?
I always loved to write, and this was an easy way to do it without being judged or graded.
10. If you could be known for one thing in your life, what would it be?
Being a good friend.
11. Where is your favorite place to go on vacation?
New Orleans, hands down. I love that city. If you stick around this blog enough, you’ll see a trip to New Orleans pretty much every three months or so. The culture, history, food. You can’t beat it.
12. Describe the best moment in your life.
Graduating from Auburn. I had dealt with a sickness that left me not knowing if I was going to be able to graduate. I got really sick two weeks before graduation. Through some hard work and convincing on my parents end, I did end up graduating. Still with honors. I didn’t get to walk, but I got to watch the ceremony on TV, and my best friend at the time wore my honor cords for me since I couldn’t be there.
13. We’re headed to your neck of the woods for one day. What is one thing we have to do, and what restaurant we must eat at?
Must go to Saw’s for their amazing BBQ. After that, head next door to Dream Cakes for one of their awesome cupcakes. If they have the Grapico one, do it. If not, go for the wedding cake one . Full of deliciousness. Then hit up Vulcan Park to see Vulcan. You know the statue man that watches over Birmingham? After that, head to Avondale Brewery for one of their awesome beers (or Good People!). Then if you’re in the mood for some music, hit up Workplay or Zydeco!
14. What is a tradition you and your family have?
Doughnuts from Dunkin Donuts on Thanksgiving morning!
15. We all love social media, share your links so we can follow you.
They’re down there…yeah, down there at the end!
