Dee from Fit, Fed and Happy sent me the nicest email a few days ago. When I checked out her site, she had posted a list of fun questions and I thought, why not? I’m such a sucker for memes.

1: Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed?
Open and yes, it’s a MESS!
2: Do you take the shampoo and conditioner bottles from hotel?
No. I have enough junk in my house, but my mom does and it cracks me up.

I don’t use a top sheet. Hate them, always have.

HA! Just posted about this.

Hmm, a bear. I think I’d have more of a chance against only one attacker. Does playing dead actually work?

That was fun! If you blog you should totally do it!

Between those questions and the Throwback Thursday post I wrote on TheUnworldlyTravelers I’ve been spending a lot of time reminiscing. (Click here to check it out)


Yup, that’s me, age 15, TWENTY TWO YEARS AGO. I’ve been feeling old lately, not in a bad way. It’s hard to explain. I’m kind of fascinated by the whole aging process.

Anyway, I should say I actually had a quote I was going to share thanks to someone (I can’t remember who, I’m SO sorry!!) on Instagram but I lost it! Apparently you can’t search for @ mentions. So if you are reading this and you shared a photo of a quote with me please leave a comment. I can’t find you!

If you decide to answer the questions on your blog leave your link in the comments. I’d love to read your responses!

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

      Reserves. I needed money for college. Never really served. Completed basic, started college and then was discharged the next summer for medical reasons.

    This has nothing to do with your post but just wanted to tell you that I travelled by bus through Maryland last week and saw a little bit of Baltimore and a beautiful nature you have in Maryland. No wonder your beautiful pictures from the hikes and your runnings.

    FYI – in that picture, you look just like Hermione circa Harry Potter 2. LOL. So cute!

    When it asks for your Chinese sign, it’s actually by year and not time of the year you’re born in. I’m a Leo, but by the Chinese signs, I’m an Ox. Yo should google it, it’s very interesting

      HA! Didn’t even catch that. I’m a dragon. :)
