One. Tip-toe monkey walker
When I first began to walk, I apparently walked on my toes and raised my arms high above my head…this is where my nickname “little monkey” came from…and the fact that I was apparently a hairy baby…thank the LORD that didn’t stay as I grew older. To this day, my dad gets at me for walking on my toes…I should’ve taken ballet.
Two. Clowns are the plague
So…I have an obnoxious fear of clowns…people think it’s funny, but it TOTALLY isn’t. My colleagues remember how I “jumped 10 feet in the air and bolted to work when I saw a meshed faced clown”. Point One…I obviously didn’t jump that high. Point Two…there were NO festivals going on, so why in the world was there a clown walking around!? I apparently liked clowns as a kid…I learned better as I grew older.
Three. Yoga is life
I was definitely that “overweight-gamer-girl-who-ate-way-too-much-crap-and-didn’t-take-care-of-herself” teenager. It was really hard, especially because I just couldn’t find any form of fitness that was fun. Then…I found yoga…and my goals are to be this epic yogi and show off my skills wherever I go! It’s both a mentally and physically demanding form of fitness and way of life…and I’m so glad I found it.
One. What is the saddest book you’ve ever read?
It’s a mix-up between “No Telephone to Heaven” and “The Little Prince”…don’t make me choose, because I can’t ha-ha.
TWO. If you could replace one character in any book with yourself, who would it be and why?
This is a REALLY good question…I have no idea ha-ha! I feel like this is cheating…but I would love to just be placed in the Harry Potter series. Instead of it being the trio…it would be the quartet! I used to TOTALLY pretend I was part of the adventures ha-ha.
THREE. Book to movie adaptation…thoughts? WHich one is your favourite?
I tend to REALLY not like book to film adaptations – they always miss way too much content (and it’s ALWAYS the GOOD STUFF) and I never feel as satisfied. I did enjoy “The Outsider” and “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe” though!
FOUR. How photogenic is your pet (if you have one…if you don’t, then how colourful is your bookshelf)?
When the puppies stay still, they are SUPER photogenic…however, this is a RARE occasion…they just tend to lick my phone when I try to take a photo of them ha-ha!
FIVE. Sci-Fi or Fantasy?
Fantasy…100% Fantasy. I’ve always wanted to get more into Sci-Fi. Funny enough, I prefer Fantasy in novel form and Sci-Fi in film form…don’t ask why, because I have no idea.
