Answering the Tough Questions

I'm aware that I just did a link-up post yesterday but this link-up by Erin is just too good to pass up. So please excuse this major blogger faux pas. I just love link-ups especially when  writer's block hits or when I have nothing exciting to talk about. So keep reading if you want to get personal with me ;)

1. If you could do one thing differently in your life, what would it be?
I wouldn't say that I have many regrets since every experience in my life this far has shaped me in to the person I am today. However, I wish I would have got more involved in the social aspects of university. Don't get me wrong, I ran a student group and participated in it for 3 years and I made friends, I just wish I would have gone to more events and allowed myself to meet as many people as possible. Now that I am done my schooling at UofW, I know that I will miss it so much and I just wish I would of taken more time to really truly soak in every aspect of university life (and allowed myself more crazy, spontaneous, drunken nights).

 2. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
This is a tough question to answer. I am only 20, so in 5 years I will be 25 years old. That still seems so young to me. I am not somebody who has my life planned out at all nor do I have expectations of when big life events will happen (ie. marriage, kids, buying a house, etc). I just know that those things will happen when I'm ready for them and that there is no rush. For right now, I will say that I hope to be settled in to a profession I love, I hope to have extra money to travel and explore the world, and most of all, I hope to be happy and satisfied.

 3. Do you honestly want kids?
Yes 100%. I have always known that I wanted kids and adoption has always weighed heavily on my heart as well. Growing up, I always dreamed of having a large family (8 kids to be precise, which is exactly what my mom always wanted to) but now I have calmed down a bit. Brandon says 2 or 3 is a good number, I always try to push that number up closer to 5 or 6. I love the support my huge family provides me and I want my kids to experience the same growing up.

 4. What has been the best moment of your life so far?
Seeing as I'm only 20 and I haven't had made "big moments" this far, but I still have had some pretty amazing experiences. For example, the day Brandon asked me out, graduation day, my first and last day of university, and traveling to Nova Scotia. I also think it's important to find the special moments in every single day too, whether that be a beautiful sunset, having coffee with an old friend, or sweet kitty cuddles.

 5. What is your life theme song?
Hands down "I don't want to be" by Gavin Degraw. Partially because I am a hardcore One Tree Hill fan (and still miss it to this day) but also just because the lyrics have always resonated with me.

" I don't want to be anything other than what I've been trying to be lately, all I have to do is think of me and I have peace of mind. I'm tired of looking 'round rooms wondering what I've got to do or who I'm supposed to be. I don't want to be anything other than me".

6. What is one thing you have yet to accomplish that you want to do before you die?
There are SO many things that come to mind. There are fun things such as traveling the world, skydiving, road tripping, bungee jumping, zip lining, etc. Then there are also more serious things such as getting married, having kids, buying a house, living happily, helping others, volunteering my time, and living a happy and meaningful life. Also another big one is learning to love unconditionally.

7. If you could choose one thing to be known for, what would it be?
Ideally, I would like to be known for my thoughtful, giving, and understanding spirit. For having the desire to help others as much as possible, wanting to give more than I ever hope to receive in return, and having a contagiously positive attitude.

8. If you could do anything you wanted right in this very moment (no consequences, no fear, etc), what would it be?
If money or time wasn't a factor, I would buy two plane tickets to somewhere far away (probably in Europe) and Brandon and I would leave tomorrow and travel for months. Just explore and live life.

9. What has been the most challenging moment in your life?
I have mentioned many times before on my blog, that I have experienced quite a bit of loss for my short 20 years of existence. I have lost two grandpas, my great grandma, and two of my wonderful cousins. These were all incredibly hard moments for me but they have made me the strong person I am today.
 10. Summarize yourself in one word.
Passionate. In other words, stubborn. I get told this a lot. I much prefer the term passionate though and this trait can be blamed on both my parents.

 Are you like me and just go with the flow or do you have all your
 big life moments planned out?
Am I crazy for wanting a million kids?
Feel free to share some of your answers with me, I'd love to know your responses.
