The Mama behind Millennial Motherhood

I love a good blog survey. I always click over to read when I see other bloggers do them because it’s fun to learn more about people outside of the normal stuff we post. Since I love to read them, I thought you might like to as well. So I thought it might be fun to play a get to know me better game with you. If you have a question, leave it in the comments below! I love doing these types of posts!

6. Where did you go to college?
I went to college in Vancouver, BC at Visual College of Art & Design! I was in the Fashion Marketing & Merchandising Program and funny enough I excelled in my photoshop 101 class the most.

Nothing in the fashion industry! I ended up moving back home to Vancouver Island & trying to find myself again.

10. What kind of music do you like?
This is an easy question. Music has always been one of my top passions when it comes to singing, playing music or listening. I love all music genres! Bring me to an orchestra and I will feel ever piece in my soul. Bring me to a screamo band I will mosh hard. Bring me to a rave & I will be in bliss, bring me to a country concert and I will be so so happy! I really don’t dislike any music.

11. What’s one hobby that you’d like to take up?
I would love to learn more about photography and get into it more again. I loved photography for as long as I can remember. However, I broke my fancy camera in grade 12 and never really picked up another! Even in 2016 when my husband bought me a camera.. I just didn’t have the same feelings about photography but I would like to take it up again.
I would love to also take up piano music again. It is one of those instruments besides the Cello that hits me deepest emotionally.

12. What did you think you wanted to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be a singer!

13. What’s the biggest project on your to-do list right now?
My blog! Always looking for ways to improve.

14. Do you have any irrational fears?
Hmmm, my anxiety is specific to health. I often think I have cancer & have a huge fear of death.

Yes, I have been to Miami, Hawaii, Mexico, Seattle.

16. When’s your next vacation and where are you going?
Seattle! This weekend.

17. Do you speak any other languages?

18. What’s one talent that you wish you had?
I wish I could play an instrument like a child prodigy.

19. What’s something that you wish you could do one more time?
One thing I wish I could do one more time would be to see my mother and tell her I love her more than she ever knew. I wish I could have talked on the phone one more time with my grandfather before he passed away. My mother passed away when I was 21 (I am 25) and my grandfather passed away when I was 24. They were truly the closest people to me besides my husband. I would give anything to talk to them again because they were the only two people I could say absolutely anything to. I would talk to them daily/weekly & when that was taken from me I felt like I was lost. I dont have that anymore. I became a mother without a mother. My grandfather was my father figure because my father was in & out of my life growing up. It gets tough sometimes for me so I just wish these two didn’t leave me so soon. That selfish of me but it’s true.

20. If you weren’t in your current job, what would you want to be doing?
Currently I am a Legal Secretary. I absolutely love my job but if I had the choice and could be a stay at home mom & blog I totally would! That’s what I would be doing but I would like to make enough money where I could still save for retirement etc. Right now that seems like a pipe dream BUT I’m always finding ways to improve. :)
