I love these questions!! since the post got a bit long i only posted half of the questions...the other half are coming tomorrow!
What motivates you?
sunshine, pretty photos, daydreaming. daydreaming sounds weird but i can think about things and get myself so excited i just have to start working on something! I also get really motivated by reading other people's blogs. i love seeing what people are up to. it really motivates me to get creative myself.
If you could either be a dinosaur or have one as a pet, any one...what would it be?
.i love dinosaurs! i won a dinosaur book in grade one and ever since i have been very interested in them...that being said...i don't know much about them. is that weird to be really interested in something and not take the time to learn more about it? i have a few things that fall into that category, haha.
anyways...my favourite dinosaur has always been the brontosaurus. apparently it's now called apatosaurus.
i love their long necks and they seem like they would be friendly. that is definitely the dinosaur i would be or have as a pet.
...or maybe a mustachasaurus (made by grrfeisty, roxy) it's basically a more stylish apatosaurus.
at the same time though i wasn't super concerned with fitting in and i didn't want to look/act like everyone else. i wore...interesting clothes. my favourite pants were thrifted men's dress pants that i called my 'old man pants'. i went through a couple pairs because mine kept mysteriously disappearing (my mom threw them out).
i loved changing my hair style and colour (i still do) and my hairdresser used to get mad at me because i often made ridiculous requests.
i LOVED music and i was slightly obsessed with a few bands. my friends and i used to walk to every variety store in the area to check for new music magazines. I also went to a ton of concerts. eventually (i think in gr. 12) i started a band and we played around a lot in the hamilton area.
i did very well in high school without a huge amount of effort (this gave me problems in university, haha).
i was in the school band and very involved with the music department. i loved (and still love) my music teachers. they were a husband and wife team and they taught me so much! i was kind of quiet in most of my classes...but not music. i was my regular silly self. it was such a great environment.
i think i could go on for days about highschool! in general it was a positive experience for me and i really enjoyed that time of my life :)
ahh i wish! :) that is my dream...to support myself with my creativity. i have never been able to see myself in a traditional job. i have a degree in chemical engineering...but i don't plan on using it.
