Answers to My Questions-  Followed by My Questions for my Nominees

1. What do you like to do first thing  in the morning, if you have a choice?

Have coffee, I can’t start the day without coffee, simply doesn’t work.

2. Do you think we should strive to be “normal” or just be ourselves?

I suppose we should try to be as normal as we can be, all the while being as much ourselves as we can be. What is normal anyway?

3. Does anyone know you well enough that you trust them to “give you advice” about your path and your life? If so, who?

Yes, some friends and my sometime therapist. I definitely trust her, she can be objective, and she is highly intelligent and empathetic, so I definitely trust her. I just wish she took insurance so I could speak to her more regularly.

4. Do you feel more connected to the people you interact with on WordPress, or the “real life” people in your life? Or is it even and balanced?

I do feel very connected to the bloggers with whom I have conversations on WordPress! We, most of us, suffer from bipolar d/o or another mental illness, so we understand a lot of things about each other without having to explain a thing, which is really amazingly nice!

5. Do you prefer to be with people the majority of the time, or prefer time alone?

Sometimes I want to be with people, sometimes not. Sometimes being with people makes me very anxious and I have to come home and be solitary.

6. What do you miss about your younger self?

The being young of course. Also the hope for things to turn out well, the time to work on things, time, really it’s having the luxury of time, that’s what I miss.

7. Favorite tv show? or favorite movie?

Favorite TV show is “Downton Abbey” and “Sherlock”. Favorite movie lately might be “Madame Bovary” and all time is “Amadeus!”

  1. I love Sherlock. I feel the same way about missing having the time to make mistakes and still work things out about life.
    It feels very different betwern 20″s and 40’s.
    So many wrong turns I wish I could fix.
    I enjoyed your post.
    Thank you for taking time and answering the questions so thoughtfully.

    And I do not know what “normal” is except that I tend to be accused of being not normal by the people I live with and my family….so that is why I wondered what other people thought.

    Thank you for the post. It is nice to get to know each other.

    Much love,
    Annie💕💕
