#190: What will you never do? Wear fur.

#191: Excluding romantic relationships, who do you love? My family and my pets.

#192: What is your earliest childhood memory? Probably hiking in the forest near our home or loading up on books from the Bookmobile when it stopped at the park in our little town. The outdoors and reading–obviously two of my favorite things.

#193: What book has had the greatest influence on your life? The Art of Happiness. It’s really changed the way I look at everyday situations and setbacks.

#194: What three questions do you wish you knew the answers to? What happens after we die? (Everyone has a theory, but obviously no one can prove it for certain.) When will I die? What will the world look like over the next 100 years?

#195: What is the greatest peer pressure you’ve ever felt? Hmm. I avoid people in general and tend to only make friends with people whose viewpoints I respect, so I can’t say I’ve felt a lot of peer pressure in life. I guess I do get a lot of pushback for being a vegan. People seem determined to convert me to eating meat.

#196: What’s the biggest lie you once believed was true? For years I told myself I’d never be able to juggle writing full-time while also working full-time, and still have a life. But with willpower and time management, I’m making it happen.

      Yes! It came by once a week. You could browse books on the bus or, if you had ordered a book on loan from another library, pick it up at the bookmobile. That was the highlight of the week when I was a kid!

    I am in complete and utter awe of you for #196. YOU’RE FABULOUS, YOU KNOW THAT RIGHT? I only work parttime and even that tires me out so much I don’t feel like writing. I either feel like working OR writing and managing both…gah, it does my head in. >_< Hopefully I'll figure it out one day. *nods*

      You’ll get there! Hang tight! It took me YEARS to find that balance. No lie. O_o But eventually it all came together. (I will admit that sometimes I still get exhausted and throw myself down on the sofa whining, “I just want to read and drink teeeeeeaaaaaaa!” But those moments are becoming fewer. :D )

    Humans really need to stop wearing fur. It makes me so angry and sad.
    I love the fact that you had a bookmobile. I wish I would have had something like that in my childhood!

    • writergirlm

      Oh, you would have loved the bookmobile! I agree, fur is senseless and cruel. So glad I never got into that “fashion” statement. I rarely even wear the faux stuff because it reminds me too much of the real thing.

  • Frannie Pantz

    Good for you for writing while you are working! I often wonder about when I will die or how or what will happen. But obviously I guess that will just have to remain a mystery! And OMG you had a Bookmobile too??? I thought my school was the only ones!!!

    • writergirlm

      It took me years to get there. And I think it’s still a work in progress!! I hope you’ll get to that happy medium soon. <3
