Getting personal.






Things are getting a little personal around here. Lots of questions. Some anonymous and then some deeper thought questions thanks to Erin!

I always find it strange when I get anonymous questions asked on Tumblr. At a time I had Formspring, but I deleted it because it was pretty much an excuse for my ex & Lucas' ex to start drama. Then I would get questions on Tumblr and at a time you were able to easily track it, which never surprised me when I found out who the person was. I was checking my e-mail and noticed I missed an anonymous question. I go onto Tumblr and to my surprise I had missed 28 questions! 

Most of them were asking the same thing as other questions so I'm going to try and cover whatever was asked by picking a few of the actual questions. I just want to remind you that if any of you ever wonder about something I write about feel free to contact me! I have no issue answering anything even if it's personal.



You keep saying that your life is so crazy at the moment. You blog about everything I mean isn't that what blogging is about? Why have you not come out about your break up and your tough time? Some people may be able to relate to your story.
We didn't break up. As far as life right now, it's been a little hectic. Some things are turning around and others I'm still working on. There are some things I don't want to discuss until they get better because other people are involved and I don't know if any of them read my blog. As far as break ups go, I've been through my share so if anyone ever needs someone to talk to about one their going through I can for sure help!

Do you even go to school? You don't talk about it enough to convince me.
I feel like that's pretty much all I talk about lately. Yes, I'm currently in school. I've been going full time since I graduated high school.

Whats with the weight loss because stress isn't a valid excuse. 
Some people are emotional eaters and some people can't eat when their stressed. I'm one of those people who can't eat when I'm stressed or upset.

I read your blog and you won't come clean about your personal issue you mentioned multiple times. Are you pregnant? If you are you need to remember that any alcohol consumed will harm the baby.
I'm not pregnant. You're right, babies don't like alcohol.. I do. 

I follow your blog spot and you never talk about your boyfriend Luke anymore :(
Holy crap! I had about 12 different versions of this question. After 33 months, LBZ is still around. No worries.

How do you drink so much beer & manage to lose weight??
Fabulous question! 

How often do you work out? I need your diet secrets make a blog post about it
I don't workout, I seriously need to get back to the gym. I don't have any diet secrets. Maybe one day I'll get motivated enough to get back on track.

I remember seeing pictures of you being a promo / shot girl whatever happened with that? 
The shot girl thing was just because they needed someone. I started doing promotions before I started working where I do. It pays well and it's easy, but I can make a lot more in a night at my work. 

I've been reading your blog since you started it. Why are you not posting or updating it? I  look forward to new posts and it's like you have no interest in making them or keeping your readers. 
Yikes. I have interest in blogging. I just haven't had much motivation to actually blog. I plan to start blogging more frequently.


That pretty much covers anything that was asked. I was about to post this when I saw Erin's post show up. I figured since there's so many questions people have asked me recently, I'll just keep this post going a little longer.

1. If you could do one thing differently in your life, what would it be?
Not dated in high school. That set me back, a lot. It ruined a lot of friendships and I wasn't able to do all the things I wanted to back then. I dated all the wrong people and found myself in a lot of situations that I shouldn't of ever had to deal with. 

2. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I have many things I want in the next 5 years however, I'm not sure what will happen. I would love to be married with an amazing job in the city I love the most. I can honestly see myself in Nashville. Possibly going for my masters.

3. Do you honestly want kids?
Absolutely. But, not until I feel like I've done everything I wanted to do in my life without kids. I love kids and plan on working with them. I also love my freedom, only being responsible for myself and craft beer. I'm not ready to give that up anytime soon.

4. What has been the best moment of your life so far?
I don't think that I could pinpoint one moment of my life. I've had a lot of wonderful moments so far and I still have so many more to come.

5. What is your life theme song?
I had a hard time deciding which song best described my life. I'll have to go with My Highway by Jason Aldean.

"On my highway I've broken down 
Cried when no one else was around 
And prayed that God would save my soul 
Yeah I've paid a lot of heavy tolls 

But what a feeling, chasing the sun 
Living my life like a shot from a gun 
Laughing a little bit more with every mile 
Oh what a freedom racing the wind 
Dying to know what's around the the next bend 
And smiling as I watch the years roll by 
I'm learning how to take it day by day on my highway." 

6. What is one thing you have yet to accomplish that you want to do before you die?
Overall success.


7. If you could choose one thing to be known for, what would it be?
Myself. I never want to be or seem like I'm anything but who I am.

8. If you could do anything you wanted right in this very moment (no consequences, no fear, etc), what would it be?
Move to Nashville. If it wasn't for school, I'd be there. Lately I keep thinking about how I wish I had known what I wanted to go to school for earlier so I would of been able to just go to school in Tennessee. But, it'll happen.

9. What has been the most challenging moment in your life?
Finding myself. It's still a challenge, but I'm making progress. It's taken a lot of time for me to realize what I want to do in life. It's been hard to accept that I can't make everyone happy and that no matter what I need to worry about my own happiness. I've had moments that I felt insecure and completely lost. In the past I found it hard to not be hard on myself when someone else hurt me. Overcoming negative thoughts about myself has changed so much about my outlook on life.

10. Summarize yourself in one word.
Strong.

  1. Wow, those are some pretty, well, rude questions you got asked! (Like the school one and what you're going through.) I don't really think it's anyone's business about whatever it is you're going through. If you want to talk about it, you will. And THAT'S what blogging is about: sharing what you want. Great answers though!
