Ten Things You Didn’t Know About Me


Hello dear readers… I’ve been tagged by the wonderful Stacey over at Poot’s Notes for this fun post of sharing. This is a great way to get to know your fellow bloggers a little better. Thanks Stacey, here we go!

The rules are as follows:

  • Link back to the blogger who nominated you and answer their 10 questions
  • Add the badge to your post
  • Write your own 10 questions and tag 10 bloggers to do the same

Here are Stacey’s questions and my answers:

  1. What is your favorite type of music?

My taste in music can be somewhat eclectic but I am very partial to hard rock and heavy metal.

  1. Who would you call your hero?

I’ve seen my big brother go through a lot in his life, but he has always gone above and beyond the call of a brother time and time again for me, so I would have to say it was him.

  1. Why do you blog?

You wouldn’t think that was a tough question lol. I guess I’m hoping it will turn into something bigger one day. I love to write but we already have an author in the family so I get a bit self-conscious and start thinking people might think I’m a try hard or something. So for now, I blog!

  1. What is your favorite TV show?

I’m a big Star Trek fan J I also enjoy The Big Bang Theory.

  1. If you could have lunch with anyone, dead or alive, who and why?

Probably I’d have to say Leonard Nimoy. I went to a Star Trek convention in 2011 and met William Shatner, it was awesome, but I was disappointed that Nimoy hadn’t come out to Australia (apparently he toured with the convention in America but didn’t come over here with the rest of them). I really wanted to meet Leonard Nimoy and thought due to his age, I might not get another chance. I was right 😦 I was devastated when he passed away. I guess I just wanted to tell him, like I’m guessing he’s heard a thousand times before, how he impacted on my youth. It would have been great to meet Gene Roddenberry for the same reason.

  1. Do you have a degree?  What is it in?

I hold a Certificate I, II & III in Security Guarding and Crowd Control, a Certificate IV in Youth Work, a Diploma of Community Welfare Work, a Diploma of Beauty Therapy, a Certificate I &II in Reiki and a Certificate of Achievement in Crystal Light Healing® Practitioner’s Course.

  1. What is your dream job?

Currently I’m setting up a business for me to practice my Crystal Light Healing® and Reiki… to be able to do that as my bread and butter would be my dream come true.

  1. What is your greatest accomplishment?

The birth of my daughter 🙂 She is all I could ever have dreamed of and more.

  1. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Blogging lol, and helping people via the healing powers of crystals and Reiki.

  1. If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?

Egypt. I have always wanted to see the pyramids in person… I don’t know about going in them because I’m claustrophobic, but I want to see the rich ancient culture and feel it’s magic. I would also love to travel across Europe, see Italy and Spain where my heritage lies, and also see Stonehenge in the U.K. (I am a witch after all).
