Getting to know me: 26 questions

There is a new topic up on Z & Cinder’s blog and it’s all about getting to know the person behind the blog. Z and Cinder writes: This lovely list of questions has been floating around twitter a lot recently, and we thought it would be a great topic challenge for everyone to get to know each other a little better. 

My answers:

  1. How do you drink your tea? I don’t drink tea very often but when I do it’s usually with honey.
  2. Favorite dessert? Ice cream! Ben & Jerry’s Salted Caramel Brownie, or anything chocolate.
  3. Favorite season and why? Summer because I love the sun, swimming, being outside and not having to wear warm clothes. Our summers are usually short, so we learn to appreciate every sunny day we get.
  4. What cheers you up? A lot of things cheer me up, like my boyfriend, friends and family, watching a show or movie I like, listening to music and animals!
  5. Dogs or cats? If I have to pick: Cats, cause I don’t have to take them out for walks and I’ve always had cats.

  6. What is your dream holiday? There are so many amazing places I would love to visit, but my dream holiday has to be at least a few weeks in a water bungalow with all-inclusive on a small island in the Maldives or a similar paradise. A quiet place I can relax, do nothing if I want, listen to the ocean, swim and eat delicious food.
  7. How many kids do you want? At least two, because I grew up as an only child and I always wanted a brother or sister.
  8. Favorite weather? Sun and 20+ degrees. But I feel weird if it goes too long without some heavy rain cause I’m so used to rain, and I love thunderstorms!
  9. What would your last meal be? Norwegian Christmas dinner: Pinnekjøtt with kålrabistappe which is lamb ribs with mashed rutabaga.
  10. You can spend 24 hours anywhere, where? I would go back in time and spend more time with my grandmother.
  11. Who or what would you haunt as a ghost? Probably someone I dislike a lot.
  12. Family ancestry? I’m 50% Norwegian and 50% Filipino.
  13. What scares you? Losing someone I love, accidents, war and how acts of racism, white supremacy and extreme far-right groups have become more accepted here.
  14. What are you grateful for? My boyfriend, my family and friends, for being born in Norway and being healthy.
  15. Dream job? To work with animals, like on a farm or sanctuary.
  16. Do you believe in aliens? Yes, but aliens doesn’t necessary have to mean conscious and intelligent like humans, they can be other animals, plants, bacteria or anything alive that grows another place in the universe.
  17. Favorite sport? I like to watch football (which some of you call soccer).
  18. How do you relax after a long day? Sometimes I fall asleep on the couch in front of the TV or I relax by playing a game like WoW, Overwatch, Diablo 3.

  1. Oh, there was the post from you :) Thanks for stopping by so! Nice to get to know you better too :)

    What was it you missed the most growing up without siblings, can I ask?

    1. I grew up alone with only my mother who couldn’t work cause of an illness, so I always wished I had someone who was in the same boat, someone else who could help her and understand how it was. I was also bullied in school so I wished I had an older sibling who would stand up for me and protect me, also someone to play with outside school, someone who always were there. I did have a few friends in school and outside school who lived in my street, and relatives on my mother’s side, so we weren’t all alone, but they weren’t always there when I/we needed them :( But I had my mom who despite her illness did everything she could for me. We didn’t have much money, but we managed and I was just like other kids I knew. So I had a good childhood, just hard at times. But I grew up perfectly fine, so don’t worry if you only have one child :) The myths you might hear about only childs are just myths, not truth. I was never spoiled or selfish, I made friends easily and still do :)

  2. Thank you for your sweet response :) It does not sound like the easiest childhood at all; I hope you got out of it in as good as shape as possible.

    I do worry, especially because our son will not have a sibling. But he appears to be an introvert, much like both his parents are, so I guess it’s not all bad- I try to look at the benefits of being without siblings. Granted, though, that might not make it easier for him to make friends, if he needs his share of alone time. Hm…So many things to consider. Yet I cannot change facts, of course.

    Thank you again :)
