Question 23 – Talk about a moment when you got annoyed with a married friend, a person in a relationship, or a person with kids (Be honest! No judgment!)

I would have to say a friend of a friend with kids. One night my friend’s friend came to visit with her 3 year old daughter and 9 year old nephew. I was about to have my cool glass of water when her daughter comes over to me trying to reach for my glass. I realized she wanted to have some so I let her have a few sips. After which, I went to get a fresh glass of water which I drank. To my surprise, her nephew observed what I did in bad light and told his aunt I threw out the glass of water his cousin drank from. The mother was taken aback but I’m sorry, I wanted water not water mixed with baby saliva!


Question 22- What fictional character in a movie, tv show, or book do you identify with and why?

Well this character resonates with me because she resonated with my brother. He was ecstatic that the little girl Rue in the first Hunger Games ┬ámovie resembled his sister (me) when I was a kid. I didn’t have too much interest in the movie before this and had to go see it myself. Love my brother!

Question 20-Describe your most difficult breakup and what you learned from it

In 2010, my relationship of five years ended. It was long distance but we’d see each other whenever possible. Unfortunately graduate school along with fears got in the way causing certain unforeseen actions to play out which I refused to forgive. It was difficult in the sense we established love, spoke of marriage after undergrad but plans changed on my part and I decided to go further with school. I asked him to wait (maybe selfish perhaps) but he tried to start something new and maintain our relationship. Nothing remains in the dark and I found out. I wasn’t angry at her, I was angry at him and at myself for maybe being too selfish. I didn’t accept his calls and apologies in the aftermath and we went our separate ways. My learnings from the relationship have been primarily positive opting to remember the good times, words in action and love nurtured. Souls may kiss but not necessarily stay together but that’s life! Pick yourself and try again!
