Questions from my nominator
1.  Why do you blog?
I blog because I love it.  It was never about how many people read it or how popular it gets.  It has always been about an outlet.  It is a why to creatively keep your thoughts together.  Kinda like an online journal.
2. What is your favorite color?
3. What bugs you the most?
I hate it when people flake out.  I like to count on plans that I make with people. 
4. What is your favorite go to food/recipe?
Is take out a good answer?  I don't cook much while I live in the dorms.  My favorite take out would have to be Chinese.  American Chinese that is.
5. What is your life's dream?
Ultimately I would like to say that my life dream is to give God glory.  Do His will and worship Him daily.  He has given me passions, however.  I would love to travel and write a book.  I would love to start a business.  I would love to live overseas.  All of my little passions are a way to give Him glory.  
6. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live and why?
I'm not quite sure.  I love traveling and moving about.  I lived in Australia for a summer and loved it.  I would probably live in Australia as long as I'm still able to travel to other places. 
7.  What is your favorite song and why?
I have no idea.  I love Hanson.  Maybe Come to You by Hanson or Carry You There.  For those of you who don't know, Hanson comes out with new albums.  If you haven't heard from them since their Mmm Bop days, than you're missing out.8.  What bugs you the most?
I hate it when people flake out.  I like to count on plans that I make with people.
9. What is your ultimate hobby?
10.  Where have you traveled?
My favorite U.S. place would be New York City.  Outside the U.S., I have traveled to La Nariz, Mexico for one week periods, three times.  I spent a summer in East Fremantle, Western Australia.  That is close to Perth.  Last summer, I spent a little over two weeks in Lilongwe, Malawi.  I want to increase my traveling.
11. What is your least favorite thing to do?
"Lying in bed would be an altogether perfect and supreme experience if only one had a colored pencil long enough to draw on the ceiling."  - G.K. Chesterton
