Answers to the K’s Questions
I went skydiving when I was 18. I willingly got in a cage with a full grown tiger when I was 28. I literally just noticed the trend in the 8 number. I’m not sure how I will celebrate 38, but I am sure it will be epic.
2. If you could have one superpower, what would it be?
Time travel. Maybe? Or maybe flying?
I’ve always struggled with this question. I never felt it was grounded in reality, because it’s impossible to actually have a superpower. Batman, Superman and Spiderman don’t actually exist.
3. Do you have any fur babies?
I amazing dog. She’s a rescue, from an agency that works with feral dogs on first nation reserves. She was found at about a four weeks old, and then lived with a foster home until we found each other when she was 9 weeks. We thought she’d grow to be about 50lbs, but she kept on going and is now a healthy 82lbs. She sheds constantly and it drives my husband crazy because our house is constantly covered in black fur.
4. What was the last book you read?
The Opposite of Loneliness by Marina Keegan. Good book. It is a collection of short stories, so it’s very different style of book for me. But, the story of Marina herself drew me to the book, and I’ve enjoyed reading it. I wouldn’t say it’s the best book ever, but nor is it the worst. If I were into rating books, I’d give it a solid B+.
5. What is the biggest thing you’ve learned through blogging?
That no matter how alone I might feel as we are going through Recurrent Pregnancy Loss, someone else out there, somewhere in the world, is likely feeling very similar to me. Even though I am yet to meet a single person from the RPL/IF community in real life, I feel as though I have found a community who understands the emotional rollercoaster we are on, and I love the comradery and support that the group offers.
6. What did you want to be when you grew up?
A lawyer. I am not a lawyer. I chose a different field, spent nearly 7 years in post-secondary education to achieve entrance into the profession, and then 8 years working in it. And now it turns out I don’t love it. Some might even say I despise it. I’m now on a search to figure out what it is I am going to do with my life. Any suggestions?
7. Are you a morning person?
When I was working full time, I was always at my desk and working by 6:30am (the office was quite until about 8am, so I could get stuff done). Now, I don’t set an alarm, and I usually wake up around 8am. I still tend to like mornings and am known to be annoyingly cheerful in the morning, but I much prefer that morning now start at a more respectable time.
8. Name one positive thing you do to lift your spirits?
Go for a walk with Sadie and my husband. There is something about the fresh air that just makes me feel better and lifts my spirits.
Or, grabbing my camera, and forcing myself to go find something happy. Even if it’s something extraordinarily small, the act in itself helps me to refocus my thoughts. And, usually I end up finding multiple happy things, which clearly lift my spirits.
9. Is there a word that irks you? What is it?
The work irk actually irks my husband – it drives him crazy! As for me, I cannot think of anything off the top of my head. I despise spelling definitely – for whatever reason I spell it wrong every single time and have for my entire life. For some reason, I believe that the l should come before the e, as in definitley. Thankfully my computer is smart enough to correct it for me. Although, to be fair, the word doesn’t actually irk me. So, I think I just answered this question wrong.
10. Describe the last thing that made you laugh?
My dog. Today, she found a way to intertwine herself into my leg as she slept. She slept for 2 hours. If I tried to move my leg even just a little bit, she woke up and gave me a look that seemed to say “I’m comfortable, what do you think you are doing?” The look make me laugh each time.
