What questions would your best friend ask?

4 02 2009

My very good friend Abby passed along an interview meme.

If you’d like to play along, just follow these instructions:
1. Leave me a comment saying, “Interview me.”
2. I will respond by emailing you five questions. I get to pick the
3. You will update your blog with the answers to the questions. Be sure
you link back to the original post.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone
else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five

Ok, here goes 🙂

1. Looking back on your 25 years, what is one of the most difficult decisions you have ever had to make?

Wow, that’s a tough one right off the bat.  The one that comes to mind first was deciding to go to Goshen College.  I was in a serious relationship in Oregon and I didn’t know anyone who was going to Goshen.  I had some family in the Goshen area, but none that I was especially close to.  Luckily I definitely think I made the right choice.

2. Would you rather be limited to only comedic or dramatic roles for the rest of your life?

I think I’d have to go with comedic.  I’m better suited to them.  And I’m oddly drawn to dark comedies.

3. Would your rather be a marine biologist living in Florida or a midwife living in northern California?

I’m going to answer this question under the assumption that I’d be good at both jobs.  I think I’d have to go with being a midwife in NC.  Working with people is very important to me and I think I’d love being a midwife.  Also I don’t know anyone anywhere near Florida!  and if NC at least I’d be close to Oregon.  I also strangely have no desire to live in warmer climate USA.  I really have no idea why, because I love being warm.  I think it has to do with my love of the seasons.

4. How do you think your birth order impacts your personality?

I’m the baby of the family.  But at the same time, after the age of 8 I was the only kid at home.  I also started having nieces and nephews around the same time.  My sister, brother-in-law and their kids lived with us for a while when I was in middle school.  In some ways, and to varying degrees, I’ve experienced everything except middle child.  I have the confidence, and talkativness of a youngest child.  I think I also have a sense of entitlement that comes with being the youngest.  I think I also have the need to please that comes with being a youngest.  I have the independence that comes from being an only child.  I also have that wistful feeling that only children have when they hear people talk about being close to their siblings.  I don’t think I have very many “oldest” attributes, but I do feel protective toward my neices and nephews.
5. What inspires you to blog/not blog?

When I started blogging, I love the idea of sharing my story.  It became a habit.  Then I got busy with the wedding and multipule jobs and being married and I just didn’t feel the motivation as much.  I also found myself more and more intimidated by other blogs that I felt were well written.  Now, I think my friend’s blogs inspire me to want to blog.  But I still struggle to feel like I have something to stay.

Thanks Abby, love you too!
