Questions For Me
Do you like rainy weather or really sunny weather better?
I prefer rainy weather always! I tell people I’m not made for extreme temperatures in either direction. I do enjoy a sunny day, but there is something comforting about listening to the rain fall on your window. And of course when I have the time, I’m usually under a blanket with snacks, tea, and a good book.
What are your favorite books, movies, or shows to fangirl over?
So my favorite franchise of all time would be Lord of the Rings and a close second (and by close I mean it’s like half a smidgen) is The Harry Potter series. Both of these series defined my childhood and opened me to the world of fantasy. So anything dealing with Hobbits or Hogwarts, I’m all over that. I can make a LOTR or HP reference in almost any situation.
As for a show, I am a huge Bob’s Burgers fan. I’ve watched each episode at least 3 times over. I personally identify with Tina, though I love Louise’s spunk and Gene’s…everythingness. It’s a fun show that’s got some heart, but lots of humor as well. And much like my book obsessions, I can reference BB at the drop of a hat as well.
What is your greatest fear?
Oh this is a tough one. I have many fears, but I would say the one that impacts my life choices the most would be dying alone. Any time I hear a story about an unmarked grave or an unnoticed death (Charles Parker, Bobby Driscoll, or Mozart all break my heart) I internally freak out. And I don’t mean just physically being alone, but my life passed unnoticed as well as my death. That I made so little impact. I wonder what that says about my ego.
What is something that you enjoy?
I love writing. It is relaxing and soothing to me, and I am able to let my mind wander wherever it wants to. Am I feeling like dialogue? I will open that play I’ve been working on. Or do I want to write some exposition? There’s that story I’ve been slowly chipping away at. I would not consider myself a writer, but I definitely enjoy it and hopefully one day I will actually finish something that is not a play!
Do you prefer the mountains, the beach, or the countryside?
I prefer the mountains. I’m from the North East so mountains have been the background of my life. There is something so magestic and humbling at looking up at a piece of earth that has been around longer than you and will continue to be after you are gone.
What is your favorite dessert?
This is a tough one, but if I had to choose it would be a warm piece of brownie with vanilla bean ice cream on top of it. Or apple pie with ice cream on top of it. Really depends on my mood.
What is your favorite flower?
I really like the hibiscus flower. It’s so pretty and colorful with such a lovely scent.
Who are your favorite celebrities?
If you know me, besides being a reader, I am an actress so most of my celebrities are actors who I would give my left hand to meet (I’m a leftie). So in no particular order I’ll name 5:
Audiobook, ebook, or physical book?
Physical book 100%. I have yet to find an audiobook that I have liked, and ebooks for me are Lite Books if that makes any sense; books without the experience of having a book.
What’s your creative outlet (writing, reading, drawing, painting, etc)?
It would defintiely have to be acting. Its my hardest creative outlet, but its defintiely my favorite. Why? Because as an actress, my job is to tell a story. And at my heart of hearts, I love telling stories. I get to tell a story so different from mine while playing make believe. I absolutely love it.
What place do you love most in the world?
Another tough one. There are several places that I love, but I will just say any place that is overflowing with books is my happy place. My room, a library, a used book store, a convention, street fairs…if I’m surrounded by books I’m in a place I love most.
