99 questions you should ask yourself: part two

Happy Friday everyone! Today it’s time to get into part two of “99 questions you should ask yourself”. You can read my friend Katrin’s answers here!


11. How many minutes do you look at your phone each day?


Not a lot, I guess. I text my husband a bit if he’s gone at work but I don’t have all the fancy stuff (Instagram, etc.) on my phone, so unless I’m talking to someone, I don’t use it much at all.


12. Do you call your parents for no reason?


Sometimes, but with our schedules it’s easier to write or e-mail. Having a calm period of time to talk on the phone with my mom is a treat!


13. Do you know the story of how your parents met?


I kind of remember it, if I think about it! It’s weird to think about one’s parents before they were parents. :P


14. What do you miss when you are on vacation?


My cats!


15. What is the word of your childhood?

I’m going to go for something random and say “snow”. Where I grew up, we could get quite a lot of snow in the winter, so those months were filled with sledding, snow forts, ice skating, etc. Now I live in an area that tends more toward cold and dry or possibly rainy, but we don’t get a lot of snow. I miss it, but I do have very good childhood memories of it!


16. When was the last time you played a game?


I don’t even remember. I’m not big on board games, honestly, and I don’t have time to get into video or computer games. Or rather, I do, but I choose to spend it buried in a book!


17. Do you think more about your past or your future?


Probably the future. I have a tendency to start worrying about things. I’m trying to change that and be more positive.


18. In which language would you like to be fluent?


Well, my German is getting off to a non-start, though I feel that if I can ask for kaffee, bucher and katzen than I have my essentials covered. I have an app downloaded to learn it but I haven’t found a lot of time to play with it.


19. Do you try not to look like a tourist when you are on vacation?


I can’t remember the last time I went somewhere tourist-y. I always try to blend in wherever I go though.


20. Do you like yourself better when you are drunk?


Well, I’ll put it this way: I don’t like other people when they are drunk, so I avoid it myself because I assume I wouldn’t like myself that way! Besides, I feel like I have so many things to do in life and so much to enjoy, and I’d rather experience those things wide awake than with through a hazy filter of alcohol. I don’t judge other people who want to drink, I just kind of prefer not to. It’s my choice. 


Part three will be coming soon! :)

  1. #14 – me too! That’s how I knew I was having a really good time in NYC it took me 3 days to say “who misses the kitties?” Usually its 3 hours.

    #20 Amen!!!

  2. Thanks so much for answering too! And for mentioning me! You really are a great friend and I love to read your answers. :) Always looking forward to it!
    And yeah, you know how much I love the fact that you learn German! I am sure you are already great! But asking for Kaffee and talking about Katzen is definitely very important!

  3. I got an Icelandic app, I think I must look really funny when I am alone in my house playing with it :) I found German pretty easy to ick up when I lived there but I lost a lot of it when I left :(

  4. This is fun! I tend to look at my phone too much, I sometimes even try to hide it in my purse or far from my desk :-)
    Loved your answers! Good luck with German!

  5. haha drunk people can be obnoxious and I totally know what you mean. I’ve seen people act all weird and crazy when under the influence. My ex bf used to say that alcohol amplifies the mood that you are currently in. I believe it’s true. I rarely drink but when I do, I’m awfully quiet and in my zone.

  6. I am by no means fluent in German, but I have picked up the most from watching movies with English subtitles on and listening to songs in German with English subtitles and German versions of songs I already know in English.
