Ten on Tuesday (Vol. 13)

As usually, head on over to Chelsea's blog to link up if you complete this on your own blog.

1. Of your current hobbies, which would you choose to spend more time, money, and effort on? Why?

I would definitely love to spend more time writing. For one, I could spend more time blogging and keeping up with the blogging world. Plus, it would be cool to get paid just to blog! And writing is just a passion of mine. Up until December of last year, I always had a number of stories I would be working on. I was constantly working on character bios and plotlines and it's really rare for me to go so long not writing anything on my stories. And it all comes down to time. Any downtime I do have I give to blogging.

2. List the two other hobbies/habitual activities (not chores) besides the one listed above that you regularly do now and didn’t choose in question one.

Exercise, because I loathe it. I do it because it's good for my body and pretty useful if you want to lose weight. But I don't like it. I will make up every excuse in the book to get out of it. And I'm just waiting for the day where I become someone who loves it, but looks a long time coming.

Cooking. I'm not good at cooking at all. I like simple recipes like my recipe for salsa chicken. Just take chicken breasts, pop them in the Crock-Pot, pour in a whole jar of salsa, and cook on low for 8 hours. Voila! Chicken! I can't do complicated recipes. I mean, I haven't even mastered how to make Hamburger Helper right! I do envy people who love to cook and have a talent for it.

3. Why are you spending time on the above two hobbies/habitual activities at all if you really wanted to spend your time on the first one you chose? …or to put it another way, what are these two hobbies/habitual activities fulfilling that the first one doesn’t if you don’t want to put all your effort into the first hobby?

Oh, wow. I think I understood that question. It was a little jumbled. I spend my time exercising and trying to cook because I'm trying to lead a healthier lifestyle. And that's more important to me now than writing. Plus, I spend less time writing because of school. I'm busy with all my school projects, some of which involve writing, that my blogging/free writing takes a backseat right now.

4. Read John 3:16 in the Bible. In what way does this passage affect you? What are your feelings towards these words, positively or negatively?

I don't have to read John 3:16 to know what it says. It's probably the most well-known verse in the Bible. It's the essence of God's message. He sent His Son to die for us, the ultimate sacrifice. There is nothing but positivity in that message. And if you don't believe in this passage, then you don't believe in God.

5. M&M’s: nuts, no nuts, or peanut butter?

It depends. I love ice cold regular M&M's. Those are so delicious. But then peanut M&M's are so good, too. I guess it depends on my mood?

6. Putting away the feeling of pride being a bad thing: what secretly/openly are you proud about yourself?

Right now, I'm proud about how well I'm doing on Weight Watchers. Granted, I'm only in my third week but I'm not screwing up as much as I usually do. I've been staying under my 35 Extra Points, drinking a whole lot more water than I ever drank, and getting in regular exercise. I'm just trying to take everything one day at a time and not worry about what will happen on Friday or even 3 months from now. Just focusing on today and being healthy on this day.

7. Given one room in the house to do with what you want, not changing the actual size of the room and with all the money you would need, what would you do, and be specific?

I would love to make over my room. I was hoping to get a desk because I don't have one and desperately need one. But it will be a while until I get one of those. I would definitely get a desk, a flat-screen TV to mount on my wall, some sort of organizational system for my closet, a dresser, new bedsheets, artwork for the walls, a rug, and maybe a new, expensive camera to put on my desk.

8. What’s the next movie you’re going to see? Not what you’d LIKE to GO see, but the next movie you realistically are going to watch.

I have no idea, since I can't say the movie I would like to go see. I can't foresee into the future for the next movie I'll realistically go see. (Did these questions annoy anyone else but me? Because they're annoying me. And the grammar errors are annoying, too.)

9. Use the keyboard only and make your best smiley/funny/cool face –> like this! 8^)

No, thanks.

10. What makes you cry? What makes you pray? What makes you laugh?

Cry: sad stuff
Pray: anything
Laugh: funny stuff

(Oh, dang. I just got downright ornery with those last 2 questions.)


  1. LOL it's okay, bad grammar annoys me, too :)

  2. Bad grammar drives me NUTS! I totally get where you're coming from with that!

  3. I agree with the bad grammar. Writing is a passion of mine as well. I would love to hone it into a skill that would allow me to make a living from it.

  4. Congratulations on how you're doing with weight watchers! That must be an amazing feeling =)

  5. Ha, your answers at the end made me smile. I'm not going to answer these questions because only the first few are interesting to me.

  6. Weight Watchers worked SO WELL for me. Congrats! Three weeks is a long time for diets/changes in eating habits, or even habits in general, so don't be hard on yourself at all.

  7. You people are feisty. I will be sure to not let my husband visit your blog today. He's not a blogger... he's the husband of a blogger and he thought it would be fun to post some questions. Sheesh!

  8. I absolutely envy people who are whizzes in the kitchen! Thankfully the BF is one. One of us needs to be :P

  9. Haha I like the questions but I was confused about the one about hobbies as in why you spend any time on the other hobbies when you biggest passion lies in one. I think it's good to have more than one passion, even if one is larger than the others :)

    Anyway, congrats on how well you are doing on weight watchers!

  10. I'm another one who hates bad grammar!

  11. This post made me crave m&m's.


Comments make me all giddy with excitement.
