  1. Thank you again for nominating my memoir blog. Below are my nominations and responses.

    1. What is your favorite free time activity?
    Reading, I’ve always been a book worm.

    2. Do you have any role models?
    Not in person. I started my writing career last year so I’ve been trying to read the best writers out there and learn from their experiences.

    3. What would you prefer: book, theater or a movie?
    That’s a tough one. I suppose I can put them in my preferred order: book, movie, theater.

    4. Which 3 things would you take with you to Desert Island?
    A tool that will open coconuts. A book of Rilke’s poems. My iPhone it might just help me find my way off the island.

    5. What makes you smile?
    My children.

    6. What would your perfect family event consist of?
    A big breakfast, followed by a long hike in a beautiful location.

    7. What is your way of relaxing or do you have any special way to vent out?
    It’s hard to relax with a toddler at home, so I’m almost always busy but once a week, I allow myself some T.V. time, what I consider chewing gum for the brain.

    8. Which part of your daily routine couldn’t you live without?
    Hugging and kissing my hubby and toddler in the morning.

    9. If you could have any pet, what would it be?
    I never had pets growing up so it would be a big adjustment for me to have a pet, but perhaps I would consider tropical fish.

    10. When was the last time you hand wrote something longer than a note?
    When I’m not at my laptop I write in a notebook. I also like to send cards to friends and family whenever possible.

    11. Internet – miracle/ useful tool or a waste of time?
    I think the internet can be both, it all depends on the user.
