3: I love fitness and healthy lifestyle. I love eating healthy and have started this journey a little over a year now. It’s been a struggle but I continue on to hopefully be the healthiest I can be. I love zumba and dancing in general (most specifically Belly Dancing which is my passion and I’ve been doing it for five years). I love Jillian Michaels 30 day shred. And I highly recommend DailyBurn (such a fantastic website dedicated to exercise. There are literally new workouts everyday with their DB 365 and it’s live!)
4: I’m obsessed over YouTube and spend the majority of my time on there. I originally wanted to make videos but then I realized I’m way too shy to record and I can’t really edit videos well either.
5: I am a recent college grad!
6: I am a foodie! I love many different foods and I love trying out different cuisines. I’ve tried sushi which I found it to taste amazing. I love pizza.
7: I am a history buff. Since long long time ago when The Mummy movie came out on VHS, I loved history. This movie compelled me into be a history buff. I’ve spent countless hours at the library or on the computer searching up anything and everything about ancient Egypt. This search lead me to ancient Rome and Greece.
8: I love listening to music, Melanie Martinez is my all-time favorite artist along with Rising Appalachia and Carolina Chocolate Drops. My music taste varies.

11 questions for the me:
1: What is your favorite childhood memory? One of my favorite childhood memories is receiving my first harry potter merchandise. I was about 12 or 13 and I had gotten a small harry potter deck of cards. I loved it so much.
2: What inspires you to write? Many things inspires me to write. I can watch a movie and get a vague idea that won’t go away and thus I have to write it out. I can be listening to music and also just walking down the road. But what also inspires me to write is the need to put my imaginations and my thoughts out on paper. I am an avid day dreamer and so writing helps me put words to the dreams I have.
3: (From other bloggers) what has been your favorite or most memorable piece of writing? Well, my favorite has to be a vampire story that I’ve been working on for a year now. It started out as a short story and turned into something more. Right now, it’s a novel or a novella whichever one it turns out to be.
4: What is your favorite quote and why? Marilyn Monroe’s saying was “I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.” I really like this quote because it’s, to me, honest and it’s the story of my life and possibly everyone else’s lives. People deserve someone who will love them with their good and their bad side. Loving someone for who they truly are.
5: What movie/cartoon/show character do you identify the most with? I like Neal from Attachments by Rainbow Rowell. The reason why is because of his personality. I can totally relate to how he reacts and acts in situations.
6: If you had only 12 hours to do anything that you please and have always wanted, after those 12 hrs you will never be able to do that/those things ever again, what would it/they be? I’d go sky diving, horse back riding, and eat as much junk food as I could possibly tolerate.
7: Do you believe in supernatural things? Why or why not? Hm, this is a tough question. Even if I haven’t seen supernatural things happening, I kind of believe in the supernatural or paranormal because I believe there is more out there that we don’t understand or we can’t see. What is on the other side? Is it nothing or is it heaven or hell? We don’t know.
8: What motivates/inspires you to do what you do in life? Many things to be honest; family and friends for one. They inspire me to continue doing what I have to do. Especially graduate from college. Readers and other writers online help me and motivate me to continously improve my writing.
9: What is one superpower you would like to have and how would you use this power? I would like to have Storm’s powers because then I can control the weather. Make is sunny whenever I want to or snow.
10: What is a bizarre talent of yours? Well, let’s see. For me, I can do The Hunger Games whistle. Haha.
11: Which song do you feel the most connected to or feel that it describes you? I will have to say Crybaby by Melanie Martinez because I wear my heart on my sleeve so I connect a lot with the song. Though I am a secret crybaby inside. And the most important part about it is, that it’s a good song with a great chorus. I repeat the chorus almost every single day.
