Listen to the episode here:
In honor of starting the podcast, I wanted to start off with a Q&A, so I asked you guys to send in questions on my Instagram, and today I am going to answer them. Follow my Instagram so you can see more updates and take advantage of other opportunities to ask questions. I am doing this so you can get to know me a little better and also catch some bits of advice here and there.
- Favorite vacation spot?
I absolutely adore to travel, so this question makes me very happy. I have two places that I would go to right now if I could. First, Cinque Terre, a coastal part of Italy built on the mountainside. There are small villages in this area that are for the most part connected. If you think of the Italian Aesthetic, this is it. I feel most at peace in Cinque and feel at home there. A few highlights for me are the basil gelato, which is surprisingly delicious, and sitting in an archway near the cemetery in Manarola watching the waves down below. The second place is Paris, my favorite city in the world. In both of these places, you feel like you are in a Pinterest board. I adore the French language and the French culture and there is so much to see in the city. It is incredible. Stay tuned for travel posts on Italy and Paris.
- Favorite high school memory?
High school was a very hard time for me and I do not associate it with a whole lot of positivity, so this question forces me to find the positives. Being cast as the lead in Anne of Green Gables was a huge highlight for me. I grew up going to the theater so being passionate and part of the theatre came along with it. I created amazing relationships and fell in love with the behind the scenes of creating a production. The energy of being in the theater and the memories that come out of it are things I will never forget. The show proved that I am capable of anything once I set my mind to it. It was one of the best experiences I have ever had and I highly encourage you to check out local/high school theaters once it is safe.
The second is simply the relationships I was so fortunate to create. I have met some incredible people because of high school. These people made everything I did so much better. It was even from the little things like jamming out during lunch or dancing around my kitchen with my best friend. They taught me so much about myself and helped me grow in so many ways.
- How would/do you cope with feeling out of place in the city where you live in?
I will do my best to word this one (listen to the podcast episode, it might make more sense). I had to think about this one for a while, but I narrowed it down to this: find what makes you feel good. This could be surrounding yourself with people, hobbies, clubs, hidden gems, etc. There are so many bodies that make up a city so you are bound to find a few that don’t make you feel so out of place. Work on putting yourself out there or connecting with people out of the area (finding a pen pal could be cool). You have to find things that make YOU happy.
- What has been keeping you busy during quarantine?
Figuring out watercolors
Working on my website
Learning about my spirituality (astrology, LOA, all the things)
Going on drives
Watching the sky
Lots of walks
Learning about new things
Listening to podcasts
Planning trips for when it is safe
Watching new TV shows and movies
- One thing you learned from high school?
Surrounding yourself with people who make you feel good will make the experience ten times better. I don’t know where I’d be if it weren’t for the friendships I have created. They help with more than you realize, so make as many memories with them as you can and cherish it all because after high school a lot changes. Also, be happy.
I hope you got something out of this Q&A and I hope you enjoyed it. Stay tuned for more. And of course, don’t forget to stay vibin!
