7 questions #14

i missed the 7 questions #13 because i was without blogging capabilities on my last day in vegas, but i'm excited that the 7 question posts are back! now on to #14:

(my mom & i at father's day dinner on sunday. i asked my sister to snap a photo of us and she took a "prep" shot.)

1. what do you do when you're sick? (do you act like a baby? tough it out? have any weird cravings? cry?)
i do tend to act like a baby, lol. i get some comfort food (as long as i don't have the flu) and watch endless amount of tv curled up in bed. recently my allergies were just awful when i was working late one night, and my sinuses started to hurt really bad. the last time that happened i had a sinus infection for 10 DAYS. i was pretty upset, and ending up calling chester whimpering & crying a bit. luckily he was able to recommend some medicine and i was fine the next day. again, i'm a baby.

2. what do you do to find motivation when you feel you've lost it?
i guess it depends on what i need motivation for. as far as staying fit, i usually ALWAYS need a kick in the butt to go to the gym. and almost every time i think about skipping it "just for today". but then i put on my workout clothes, and by then i tell myself to just get it over with, haha. by the time i get to the gym, i get pumped and work out longer than i was planning to.

as far as motivation for photography or craftiness, pinterest does a good job. but is that more inspiration than motivation? :/ maybe.

3. do you wish time away or do you savor every moment?
i guess it depends on what i am doing. a slow day at work? i wish that time would just fly by. hanging out with chester, my friends, or my family? i definitely try to savor every moment, especially if it's a vacation or out-of-town experience.

4. if you could be any mythological creature, what would you be, and why?
ok, i had to google "mythological creature" to make sure i was choosing from the right group of creatures, lol. when i first read this question, i immediately thought that i'd like to be rob stark's direwolf from "game of thrones". i wouldn't mind following rob into battle, haha. and those wolves grow up to be pretty badass!

but if a direwolf doesn't count (i don't know, does it?) then i would be pegasus because it would be pretty cool to fly around.

5. what is your current biggest weakness and are you working on fixing it?
um, probably overanalyzing everything. that's been a weakness for a while, which brings along a lot of worry and stress. i definitely try not to overanalyze as much as i used to, especially if it's over something that i cannot change. but it's a gradual process.

6. how do you greet someone when meeting them for the first time?
"hello, i'm stephanie. it's nice to meet you", and i'll shake their hand.

7. how do you grocery shop? (do you write up a list? go in with no idea what you're looking for? have meal plans? bring your own shopping bags?)
ok, if you are a list-maker like me and haven't downloaded the clear app yet, then you are missing out!
i usually add to my list within that app before i need to get food, then if i want or need more, i branch off the list while i'm at the store. i definitely don't plan out meals, but get ingredients that give me a little flexibility.

i'm glad that 7 questions are back! i missed them! if you want to join in, be sure to link up!
