Blogger Talk – Let’s Share Experiences


  1. Have you ever thought about deleting your blog?
  2. How many people do you follow? How many blogs do you read/comment each day?
  3. Do you have blogger bff’s? Do you guys talk outside of the blogging/WordPress community?

My answers:

1. I’ve been thinking about it lately, that’s actually why I’m asking.

2. I have know idea. I follow a bunch of people but I haven’t been reading or commenting at all for the last several months, which is very strange for someone who used to read everyone every single day and comment on everything.

3. I do. I have 4 blogging bff’s and we talk a lot and have become quite intimate and inseparable last year. I feel they are the best thing that’s happened to me through my blog. I do love my blog, but I would delete it in a heartbeat if I had to just so I could keep them. They’re just some of my favorite people and best friends and I love them. I don’t think they’re less important because we’ve met online or because we’ve never met in person. They’re mine just the same.

How about you? I’d love to read your answers.

100 Questions Tag – Borrowed from Brooke Jade!!

I saw this lovely post on Brooke Jade’s blog 100 Questions Tag and just loved it!! It was so nice reading about her. I miss this kind of post so I asked if I might be tagged and do it and she kindle said “yes”!! Thank you for the inspiration, dear!!

1.) What’s your favorite season?


2.) Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 18, and find line 4.

I don’t have a book here, so I’ll go to my kindle (on my phone), find one of the books I’m reading and get back to you.

So I opened The Player: The Wedding Pact #2 by Denise Grover Swank. I read the first book and liked it, even though this is not really my favorite genre. I decided I would buy the second and have yet to start it.

Page 14, line 8:

«(…) but the look of recognition in her own eyes proved she was real.»

3.) Who was the last person you texted?

My mom, last night. I always text her before I go to bed to say goodnight.

4.) Before you started this survey, what were you doing?

I was looking at a few old posts, to check to-do lists and see what I might have forgotten to do, so I can write a new, compiled list.

5.) What is the last thing you watched on TV?

Outlander – season 3, episode 6.

6.) Without looking, guess what time it is.

10.45 a.m

7.) Now look at the clock–what time is it?

10:35 a.m (10 minutes is not so bad)

8.) With the exception of the computer, what can you hear?

I’m at the library so nothing too loud. But the air conditioner running, a few cars outside and someone just coughed.

10.) Do you like fish?

I do like Salmon, codfish and tuna. I eat anything I absolutely have to but don’t like it much. I prefer meat for sure.

11.) Mac or PC?


12.) Do you remember your dreams?

I usually do.

13.) When did you last laugh?

Coming here this morning. Rui and I were listening to the radio and a guy was telling this story of a man who decided it was a good idea to masturbate in the car and the police pulled him over and found him butt naked and completely covered in Vaseline. Go figure.

14.) Do you remember why/what at?

Oh, I just answered it in the previous question.

Not yet!

 I love some comfy socks.

 The Ring.
19.) If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?
 USA. I think.
20.) If you became a multi-millionaire overnight, what would you buy?
At the moment, I would focus on helping the victims of the wildfires that destroyed such a big part of my country this year. Some people lost EVERYTHING, so I would help them in building new houses, furnishing them and getting back on their feet.
Then I would obviously buy all of the extravagant things you imagine you would buy if you became a millionaire, like a big house, clothes, etc…
22.) What’s your favorite band?
 One Republic, Coldplay, Queen.
23.) Have you ever had to have surgery?

The pilot of Mindhunter (TV show).
29.) Last time you swam in a pool?
 This Summer. 4th of July (I went through some pictures on my phone to check the date). It’s still pool weather but I feel like Fall and school season so it doesn’t make sense for me to go lol
30.) Type of music you dislike most?
Heavy metal, too strong for me. Any kind of music you would play at a club.
31.) Are you listening to music right now?

This season of American Horror Story, the fact that two of my best friends are missing my birthday party on Saturday and the weather!

44.) Do you turn the water off when you brush your teeth?
Definitely. And it makes me nervous if people don’t.

I don’t have a car or a license. Rui’s car is the only car in our household. He changes the oil in his car and takes care of some other things as well. He’s quite handy and we save a lot of money because he buys the parts and does things himself.
 46.) Do you have any phobias?
I have this thing with electronics and electricity. I hate surveillance cameras and I’m terrified because I have to get two CT scans on Thursday and I have no idea how I will feel inside such a scary machine. Even x-rays scare the crap out of me.
