Happy Friday the 13th! I have had quite a few adventures in my bee class this week and hopefully I’ll be able to write soon! But for now, here’s 5 Question Friday!
1. Tube socks, calf socks, crew, ankle, none?
Honestly, it depends on my footwear! During the summer, I hate wearing anything that resembles a sock! If I could, I would wear sandals every moment of every day! However, if I’m wearing sneakers, boots, or any footwear that fully surrounds my foot, I have to wear socks! I prefer no-show or ankle socks; that way, I can still wear shorts or capris and not feel like I look ridiculous!
2. Was your child’s (children’s) name a mutual decision or was it a debate? If you don’t have children, do you plan on giving your spouse a say, or do you have a name you MUST have, regardless if your other half likes it or not?!
I would like to once again say, that I do not have any children-unless you count my dog-Titan- who often requires just as much attention as any child I have ever met! When I have children, I want to make the decision together with my spouse. Although, I am partial to less-common names and often I like names from characters in some of my favorite novels. Since I possessed one of those “less-common” names growing up, I know the dangers that come with that: constant mispronunciations and questions of where your name comes from, but I think that’s why I like the idea. The first time I met someone who shared my name was when I was 13 years-old at summer camp; and until the ABC Family TV Show “Make it or Break it” came out, I had yet to meet anyone who spelled it the same way as I do! However if there was a serious objection I would respect my spouse’s opinion.
3. What is your favorite type of weather?
Any weather you can swim in! Now I must say, that I’ve swam in some pretty cold weather! My freshman year, my cousin and I did a Polar Plunge in a lake up near Buffalo, NY. We did the plunge the weekend before Thanksgiving in November; there was snow on the ground and it couldn’t have been more than 40 degrees Fahrenheit out! It was for a great cause (we were raising money for the Special Olympics) however-if given the choice- I think I’d prefer for it to be sunny and at least 60 degrees out! And I still love rain storms as long as I’m near a field or lawn so I can dance and then go slip-and-sliding!
4. If left to your own devices, what time would you wake up every day?
Around 8:30 a.m.-9 a.m. I tend to go to bed fairly early so I like waking up early. As I’m beginning to learn from my time in Sweden, if the sun is out, I feel like I need to be up and doing stuff! Here in Sweden, that would mean I’d only get about 6 hours of sleep right now; fortunately in New York, I’m able to get 8 hours of sleep a night and not feel guilty about wasting daylight!
5. Have you bought your cemetery plot yet?
This is a very odd question! I have not bought a cemetery plot yet! I’m not even old enough to buy alcohol in the United States so before I read this question, buying a cemetery plot was the furthest thing from my mind! After all, I’m still a college student; let me pay off my student loans and then I might have time to think about such serious topics as cemetery plots!
