Ten on Tuesday

Roots & Rings(#16)

1. What is your favorite travel destination spot?

Giving the fact that I’ve never been out of Canada, it’s going to be B.C. You probably would have guessed Toronto because I was born there and miss it so much, but I guess you’re wrong. I have always said that if I didn’t end up moving back to Toronto that I would love to live in the mountains. Having an uncle who has pretty much lived there since I’ve been in Calgary mean we made quite the few visits down there, and every time I fell more and more in love with it.

2. Cats Vs. Dogs?

I have always been a dog fan. I don’t completely hate cats but it comes fairly close. Reason one being the cat pee. I cannot stand the fact that they pee and you can never get rid of the smell. Reason two, my mom has always been very allergic to them, so I’ve never actually got the chance to enjoy them or find an interest in them. Reason three, their claws. I can’t handle the idea of people being their personal scratching posts. I don’t like pain, nor do I enjoy being clawed at whenever they feel the need.

3. Do you believe in fate?

I’m not entirely sure. It may happen to some people, but I have my mixed feelings.

4. Do you believe in Karma?

Sure! If you’re a grouchy person your whole life, something’s bound to happen! And like people have always said, “treat people the way you would want to be treated.'” Which is sooo true. Because not only are you going to get nothing in return, but when you need a hand with anything, you’re pretty much screwed.(Unless you happen to get an extremely nice person.)

5. Everyone has a unique laugh. Do you like yours?

Well I've been told by a lot of people that it’s pretty cute, and makes them smile. But my dear boyfriend thinks that it’s sarcastic most of the time. I’m not too sure how that’s possible, but I do like my laugh, a lot. And usually when I laugh, sarcastic or not, it makes people happy.

6. Is love really all you need?

In my opinion, no! People always need more than that. They need to survive, and love isn’t going to feed you or put a roof over you head. (This question could have been meant for more than one thing, but this is the best I could think of.)

7. What’s your take on the whole 2012 scare?

I think people have blown it way out of proportion. It’s based on a few people’s opinions that got taken out of control and over exaggerated. It’s what you actually make out of it, and what YOU believe in. So I do not believe that the world is going to end, and whatever else that’s going on. But I guess we will have to wait and see.

8. If you won a million dollars and had to give it all away, who would you give it to? (Family and friends not included!)

I’m am going to say two things. One being to starving children ANYWEHERE in the world.( I'm not going to name just one place.) Two being for places for that save and provide for animals. I’ve always been HIGHLY against animal cruelty. And I’ve always wanted to provide tons of money for them because they need it. Yes they are animals, but they are still living and apart of this world.

9. Do you believe in God/religion/the power of prayer?

My mom’s going to kill me if she ever saw this. But I think I'm going to say no to all three. When I was 5 my family started learning more about the Mormon religion and they started attending. When I was 8 I was baptized. I was really into it and loved going and being with all the people. But when I started getting older and learning more and more about it, I was disliking it more and more. They are pretty controlling over almost anything you do to what you wear, drink and how you even talk. And their aspects on life with going on a mission, then getting married young and having lot’s of children. Then, maybe think about school and your career and what YOU want to do. It all got to me. But I must say the thing that really pushed me over the edge is not approving of homosexuals. And coming from a family that has two in it, and being very close to both of them, I was disgusted. Everyone has the right to be who they want to be, as you can see with me being covered in piercings and tattoos, I didn’t fit and extremely proud of it.

Every person has their own opinion about the man in the sky, and in almost every religion it’s different. If God was real I think that he would love you for you and who you want to be. Since he did create you, right?

- Just to whoever reads this. I don’t hate religion and god. And I’m not trying to hate on the Mormon religion, I’m just telling you how my experience was. So please don’t think anything bad and hate me for it. =] -

10. What New Year’s Resolution do you always make but never keep?

Probably going to be losing weight. Like most people in this world, it can be rather difficult. But I’m hoping that this year is different. With already getting one thing started on my resolution list, it’s looking pretty good.


  1. You were baptized when you turned 8. You can't be baptized any younger (at least, not if you're a Mormon).

  2. Are you sure, cause I remember it not being long after we moved here. And I was pretty sure I was seven..hmm, I'll change it.

  3. Ugh about the cats. I hate the scratching. It's so annoying! Why do they think it's okay to sit on your lap and dip their claws into your pants??

  4. oops--- DIG. I meant DIG their claws into your pants. Huge mistake!

  5. I don't completely hate cats but it comes fairly close. Reason one being the cat pee. I cannot stand the fact that they pee and you can never get ...
