TAG: Confessions of a Blogger

I haven't been posting a lot recently as my lift has been hectic. I was tagged by Katie to do this so I thought I might as well give it a whirl.

When did you start your blog?
I started this blog in September 2012.

What you had any online presence before?
I started blogging in 2010 under a different profile.

Why did you start blogging?
I originally started blogging because I wanted a way to feel liable and keep track of my Project Pan progress. I may have taken on a bit more than I can handle.

When did you become serious about starting a blog?
I'm still not super serious about it simply because I don't have the time to dedicate myself to it like I'd like to.

What was your first post?
My first post was indicating why I'm starting Project Pan and my rules.

What has been your biggest challenge about blogging?
I'm having a hard time keeping track of everyone's blogs. How do you guys do it? Advice?

Where do you see your blog in one year?
I'm not sure but hopefully at 200 followers. I might have to give it up though.

What is the most rewarding thing about blogging?
I love reading everyone's comments! I like to see other's people's opinions as well.

What is the most discouraging thing that happens to you?
Honestly, making time to read other people's blogs. I really need to find a way to do it.

What's your lasting impression or motivation?
I really want to save money to buy a house, and now afford a wedding. I love seeing everyone's comments and love other people's opinions on products.

Any advice you guys can give me on trying to manage my time? What about you? How did you get started?

The Boredom Tag

Yesterday I was tagged by Annabelle at Beauty & Lifestyle to do the Boredom Tag. So let's begin.

Let's start off with your relationship status?
I've been with my boyfriend for 3 years. This is a picture of us when we first started dating. As you can tell, we are losers. We originally took this picture to send to my sister and make fun of her Facebook pictures.

Is the last person you kissed also the next person you'll kiss?
I would hope so :)

Have you ever done something you told yourself you wouldn't do?
I always tell myself that I'm going to stop eating junk food. I'm sure you know how that went.

Have you ever fallen asleep in school?
Oh yes multiple times. I actually fell asleep once in an International Marketing class and I actually enjoyed that class. I was just super exhausted and my blood pressure was really low.

Who's the biggest douche bag you know?
I'm gotten all those people out of my life finally. Let's not reminisce.

Do you have any siblings over the age of 21?
No, I am the oldest and my younger sister is 16. This is an old picture of us.

Are you missing anyone/ something?
I miss my grandfather. He's been gone 1 year 2 days go.

What do you usually do right when you wake up?
Check the time to see if I can hit snooze.

Would you rather have orange juice or milk with your breakfast?
Can I pick coffee? No? Orange juice it is.

Once a cheater, always a cheater?
Yes. If you've been accepting of doing it in the past, it will happen again. History has a tenancy of repeating itself.

Ever sat on someone's lap because there were no more seats available?
Yup, back in high school. More recently we put a friend of mine in the trunk of my smart car. It's a hatchback, no need to get overly worried.

What are you sick of?
The cold. It's been freezing lately. I just want it to end.

How many days until your next birthday?
Are you really going to make me count? Sigh. 175.

Do you think you are a good person?
I wouldn't consider myself a "good" person only because I have high standards for that word.

Have you made a mistake this past week?
I forgot to attach a document in an email to a client. Oops.

How many piercings do you have and what are they?
My ears are pierced once each. Nothing too interesting.

Do you believe what comes around goes around?
No, I believe what goes around comes around. Sorry, pet peeve of mine.

Why did you last cry?
Just remembering my grandfather.

Are you happy with your life?
I'm content with my life. I'd like much more from it.

How would your parents react if you got a tattoo?
They'd be upset at first but eventually learn to kind of deal with it.

What's something you need to do?
Start making more time to workout.

Ever wished you could freeze time at a specific moment in your life?
Just like Annabelle, while I'm sleeping so I can sleep longer. This is me falling asleep on the couch with the dog.

What can you hear?
A coworkers conversation with a customer.

How do you feel right now?
Pretty good actually. Just waiting until I can go home.

What would make you happiest right now?
If I could teleport home and not try to fight the weather conditions.

Okay, it's your turn to do this tag. Either post this tag on your blog and comment with the link below or just answer these questions below. I can't wait to read your answers!

25 Random Facts Tag

I haven't finished a lot of products lately so I'm going to do another post from a tag by Latie Alyse. I love her product reviews and especially love her tutorials. They're very easy to follow.

So right on to the tag!

  1. I'm working from home today because it's freezing cold outside, my car won't start, and I'm not feeling the greatest. All signs point to "don't go into the office today".
  2. I truly believe that women should invest in a proper fitting bra. Most women are wearing the wrong size and it irritates me to no end when I see things like band riding up or double boobs.
  3. I named my dog after my favourite hockey player- Darcy Tucker. Meet Tucker! 
  4. I live in Canada but my family is from Italy. I am the whitest Italian you will have ever met :)
  5. I am really happy with the shape of my eye brows.
  6. This season I've been wearing a ton of sweaters. Most of them I purchased at American Eagle, which is not a store I frequent often.
  7. My favourite type of blog posts to read are empties. I dislike reading religious posts. Everyone has their own beliefs (even within the same religion) and I think everyone should form their own thoughts and grow from them.
  8. If I could live anywhere else in the world it would probably be Sweden. I love the culture, and the government structure.
  9. I love the shows "Til Debt Do Us Part" and "Princess". Gail Vaz Oxlade is my idol. I love how she just tell's it like it is.
  10. I actually like my boyfriend's friends. They're great people (well, kind of :P) and I understand why he gets along with them.
  11. Here is Puff. Her and Tucker are really funny together.
  12. I invest in Mutual Funds through my RRSP. I am by no means an expert, so please don't ask for advice lol
  13. 1 am addicted to Shoppers Optimum points. I am always tempted by the elusive 20x the points!
  14. I love Bath and Body Works candles. I will only buy them when they're on for 2 for $25.
  15. I love to cook with garlic.
  16. I work 2 jobs right now (full-time and part-time) because I'm trying to save up for a down payment on a house. I'm hoping that I can continue to keep this up.
  17. I listen to Kiss 92.5 every morning on my way to work. I love the Roz and Mocha show.
  18. I would love to find some fun, free or inexpensive, things to do with my boyfriend. Any ideas?
  19. I love 90s music. It just makes me happy.
  20. I don't understand the need to buy "crystal" or "fine china". If I can't use it, why is it taking up space?
  21. I have a hard time functioning on a computer without a dual screen. Once you switch over, it's hard to go back.
  22. I used to love to play Super Smash Bros. N64 was my favourite version, and Samus was my favourtie character. That girl kicks butt!
  23. I know a lot of people say that high school was the best time of their life. For me it wasn't. I'm glad It's over and that I've learned from it.
  24. I can't whistle.
  25. I've always preferred rollerblading to riding a bike.

NOW I TAG ALL OF YOU!!! This was a hard one for me to do. I really don't know what to say about myself.

My Bucket List TAG

I was tagged by Annabelle at Beauty & Lifestyle to do the Bucket List TAG. I have to admit that there isn't really anything too interesting on my list.

My Bucket List:

1. I want to go sky diving. I already have the tickets.

2. I want to buy a house. My boyfriend and I are currently saving up but putting 20% down is proving to be a challenge.

3. I want to learn how to bake. I can cook, I just don't have the precision to bake. I like to throw things in, not measure.

4. I want to try surfing. Living in Canada proves to make this a difficult task.

5. I want to go to Japan. I love the culture (and the anime), so I want to experience it first hand.

6. I'd like to climb a mountain. I used to go rock climbing, but only indoors.

7. Get my Master's degree. I have a bachelor's in Business and as such, if I want to continue to get my Master's in Business I need to have 2 years of related work experience before I can even apply. Truth is, I have no desire to start writing essays again.

8. Learn French. I know a BIT of French, but not enough that would qualify to be able to put it on a resume.

9. Visit a volcano. While in Sicily I saw one, but did not make the effort into climbing and looking down.

10. Ride a camel to to pyramids in Egypt.

11. Learn archery and fencing. I love the whole medieval era.

Now I TAG you! Leave a comment below telling me something on your bucket list, or post a link to where you have done this tag.
