She is courageous.
She reads at a big girl level.
Her head is on straight, kids.
The blog is Based on a True Story. The blogger is Lindsey Dubois and she’ll make you smile with her refreshing attitude and optimism.
1) Aquaman: Under-valued hero or fishy freak?
The fact that I had to Google and then watch Aquaman on YouTube should say a lot here. After subjecting my eyes to Aquaman, here is what I came up with: He is sort of a fishy freak and an under-valued hero all at the same time. Anyone who can let their freak flag fly like Aquaman does so freely is a hero in my book.
2) Your favorite number is…
Eight. Eight is GREAT! To me, the number 8 signifies the infinite flow of life- that which goes up must come down and what is down will inevitably come back up. The number eight reminds me of the need for balance in life, that nothing is promised to anyone (other than change) and to be humbly thankful for what you have or are (not) given at any moment. Pythagoreans are said to have called seven the most spiritual number, but I have to disagree. I think the better choice would have been eight.
3) Do you have a role model?
I believe before we look outward to define someone as a role-model, it is equally as important to go within and look at how our own self has served as a guiding light on the path to our highest potential. I usually always answer this question as myself, based on how much I’ve overcome and where I am in my personal journey today.
However, I do have a few role-models outside of me as well. One of them is my fellow blogger, Jackie (6monthstolive.me). She discovered my blog a few years ago and has not only supported my writing and the way in which I express myself, but she has become a dear friend and confidant as well.
Jackie is someone who left the corporate world and is literally creating her dream life, making a living doing what she loves. I am touched that she is such a cheerleader for my writing and I do look toward her work in order to gather inspiration as I pursue my dream.
4) What makes you laugh/smile uncontrollably?
I work as a pre-school teacher with one and two-year-olds (yes, it really is a psychotic profession). However, the thing that makes my heart melt and sparks a huge and delightfully painful smile on my face is when a one-year-old who is just learning to talk says, “I hold you,” when they want you to pick them up. No matter how many times I’ve heard this, it never gets old.
5) Your favorite flavor of cake is…
I. LOVE. ALL. CAKE. I love it so much that I would marry it over and over again. I dream of rolling in creamy, glutinous fields of the culinary delight. Sometimes, I only accept birthday party invites, simply due to the fact that cake will be there.
I generally don’t discriminate against any kind of cake, as they all equally make my taste buds sing AND my butt grow more cushiony at the same time…. But if I had to choose just one to have an indulgent, somewhat torrid affair with, it would be carrot cake slathered in a THICK decadent layer of cream cheese frosting. If there is a Whole Foods near you, I highly recommend going to the pre-made cake slice section in the bakery and raiding all of the carrot cake they have.
Go ahead, give it a try. You’ll thank me later.
Cake rules, no question.
Well, I don’t know about you, but I’m now craving something sweet….
My thanks to Lindsey for being such a cool do-gooder and all-around good sport.
See you soon, kids.
