For some reason, Babe comes to mind. I just looked it up and it came out in 1995, which seems right since I would’ve been around 7 at the time. Now I want to go back and watch this movie! Who didn’t love Babe?!
2. What is a bad habit you have? Are you working on breaking it?
I think my worst habit is talking bad about myself. I do it all the time and I’m trying to make a conscious effort to stop. My mom does this as well and it irritates the heck out of me when she does it. I need it to irritate the heck out of me when I do it as well!
3. Describe your father in 3 words.
Distant, jerkface, gambler.
4. Which character in the Breakfast Club were you most like in the ’80s?
I’ve never seen this movie, actually. I remember renting it once but only getting about an hour or so in, but Molly Ringwald annoys me immensely. I can’t stand her on Secret Life Of the American Teenager and she just rubs me the wrong way. Plus, I was all of two when the ’80s ended, so this question doesn’t really apply to me.
5. Name 5 songs you know ALL the lyrics to.
There are so many, but ones that come to mind:
- Beauty from Pain – Superchick
- Jesus Freak – dc Talk
- His Cheeseburger – VeggieTales
- How He Loves – David Crowder Band
- Hope Now – Addison Road
6. Do you make pancakes from scratch or a box mix?
I don’t make pancakes. I think I’ve made them once in my entire life. They’re just never something I crave or even want to eat, so the only time I do eat them is when I go out to breakfast. My mom makes them a lot, though, and uses a box mix.
7. What was your worst job ever? Why?
Probably my job at Panera Bread in high school. I worked there for 3 months, only for a few hours on Saturday and Sunday. It was a horrible job. The only job I had was cleaning up the dining area/dishes. I was trained to work the bakery, but never scheduled for it. I was also trained to work the register, but never scheduled for that either. And have you seen a Panera Bread register?! There are so many different buttons to press to get to different menus. They didn’t give me enough time to learn it at all.
Anyway, I had to close the restaurant on Saturday and Sunday nights which entailed sweeping down everything, making sure all the dishes were clean and put away, mopping the place, making sure the coffee pots were rinsed out and ready for the morning, cleaning the bathrooms, vaccuuming, wiping down the tables, etc. It was such a hard job! I absolutely hated working there.
8. What was your favorite class in high school?
Psychology. I took it when I was a senior and it was college-level, but my teacher was amazing. I swear she was Ms. Frizzle from Magic School Bus come to life. Her hair was crazy, her outfits were hilarious, and she was such a hands-on teacher, even for college. But she made the class so much fun and our final was that we had to come to class and watch Garden State. So tough!
9. Favorite summer guilty pleasure?
The hot weather. Honestly, I love it. A lot of people hate how hot and humid it is here but there’s nothing like the feeling of the sun beating down on your face and shoulders to lift your mood. Plus, after 22 years of living here, I’m used to Florida humidity. It doesn’t phase me all that much.
10. Please share your best money saving tip!
Oh, I’m the worst person to ask. I guess my best tip is to make a budget and stick to it. It’s something I keep telling myself I need to do, but I never get around to it. But making a budget will help you see what your bills are, how much extra you’ll have left over, and start the savings process.
