You guys always hear me ramble about things in my life, so I thought I would join Acting Balanced in the Monday Quiz about me. It’s a great way for readers to get to know a little bit about me, Ashley aka Crunchy. Then you can answer the questions too so I can get to learn more about you guys!
And don’t forget to add a 5th Question on your own blog so we can answer as we hop around!
1. What is the most interesting fact you have learned recently?
This one is actually tough. I am learning all the time. Um, the most interesting fact I have probably learned lately is that whales are part of the dolphin family. My daughter Bayla is OBSESSED right now with dolphins. She is reading up on them in homeschool, and about every five seconds she is sharing a new fact she has learned about dolphins. She told me this the other day, and I didn’t realize that dolphins and whales were in the same family. Go figure.
2. The alarm goes off on Monday morning. What is your first thought?
Get ready to go green with envy. I don’t have an alarm. My alarm in the morning is usually my bladder. Working from home, I pretty much set my own hours. Now that my kids are older, I usually get up before they do. So, I guess my first thought is “man, I gotta pee!”
3. What is the most memorable movie line of all time?
Man, I should’ve drank more coffee before answering these questions. Making my brain hurt. Most memorable movie line. There are only so many brain cells to spare for memory. I can’t say that I have a most memorable. “I’ll Be Back” from Terminator is always a favorite of mine to quote. I love scaring people with the thought of my return. Mwhahahah
4. Describe a situation that always seems to try your patience.
I could write a novel on this one! Between being short tempered (Irish here), OCD (like constant thought, not crazy organization), and ADD (look at the squirrel) there is pretty much NO patience in my being. I have managed to improve it to about 10 seconds, but being patient is not one of them. My patience is non-existant when it comes to ignorance and close minded people.
I really don’t get peeps that think their way is the one and only way. Being different and individual is what makes us who we are. I mean of course you have plus or minus societal norms. Not going to say a serial killer is “just who they are,” but plus and minus normal we should be able to be us without fear of some idiot harassing us.
5. What inspires you?
Being totally honest, I am not a naturally positive person. (Can anyone that is a smart ass be one? I will get back to you on that) Having to work to be positive, I am always searching for inspiration. Life is way to short to take things for granted, so I try to find inspiration anywhere I can. First and foremost my husband inspires me, (insert awwwws here). He is truly one of the most amazing people I have ever met.
He didn’t grow up with much, and definitely didn’t grow up with a strong sense of family. Despite that he has helped me raise our three children, and make a wonderfully happy home with me. He’s too hard on himself, and works hard each and every day.
Kindness is another thing that inspires me. Too many people are self involved nowadays. It really amazes me when I see some show genuine empathy for another person, or just do something to be kind. There needs to be more people like that in the world!
Ok, Crunchy peeps, now it’s your turn. Answer one, answer em all! How would you answer these questions!
