Not very interesting stuff …but some things about me!


# Answer 7 Questions:

1. Do you remember your dreams – and if you do what do you think they mean?

Yes parts of them …sometimes they are way off the grid of reality and some would make great movies! Wouldn’t have a clue what they mean… I also sometimes dream of the future …weird insignificant stuff like a place or event!

2. Would you rather share your life with a pet or a person? (or a person who is a pet?)

Hmmm… haven’t met a person as yet other than family and have always have a easy connection with animals!

3. What is the most submissive aspect of your life and your personality?

Hmmm… in a sexual relationship I like a Alpha Male! I like to make people happy, don’t like conflict and/ or letting others down! My “Enneagram Type is mean’t to be No. 9 ~ The Peacemaker” 

4. What is the most dominating?

In my job and role as a mom I take charge and am very protective of people I care for! In my job I am often sticking up for others…. when I see right from wrong!

5. if you could retrain as something, would you want to do that?

No not really I love my job as a Nurse, but there are things I would still like to try!

6. Which do you fear more – fire, water, or wind?

I’d have to pick Fire – it can be unpredictable and I’d hate to get burned!

7. How long on average each week do you listen to music?

A couple of hours per day at least!
