It’s time to answer your questions! Two days ago, I opened up the floor to all of you to ask me anything you wanted. I got a few questions so I’ll do my best to answer them now.
Karin asked: I still haven’t seen a single episode of Doctor Who… If I were to start watching it, which season would you recommend to begin with? Would it be OK to skip some of the earlier seasons?
I was introduced to Doctor Who by a friend of mine who was obsessed with season 2 at the time so that’s what I saw first. After that, I watched some of her favourite episodes from other seasons completely randomly. Only then, when I was completely hooked, did I start from season 1 and watch them in order. The seasons do make more sense (and you’ll start to understand a lot more hidden things) when you watch them in order but episodes or seasons when watched out of order can also make sense unlike with other shows I know. Seasons 1&2 and 5&6 are my favourites.
SassyRay asked: What are the top 5 places/countries on your “must see before I die” list.
Five places I’d love to visit are Switzerland, England, Egypt, Germany, and I’ve always wanted to see the Grand Canyon. I change my mind all the time, though. I really love travelling and I’d love the opportunity one day to be able to see as much of the world as I can!
Amanda asked: What is/are some of your irrational fears?
I have a bit of an irrational fear of uncooked meat. I have a hard time dealing with it at times. The germs, the source, the… gross. I don’t like to touch it and I wash my hands a million times after I do. Not having to touch uncooked meat is one of the main things I miss about being vegan. Wow, that sort of feels good to say if not a bit pathetic. I guess everyone has their quirks.
What is something you really want to do, but always put off doing?
Take up playing an instrument again so I can accompany myself when I sing. Piano or guitar will do.
Do you think that having money (enough to not have to worry about it anymore) would change how you act or what sorts of things you do?
I like to think that it wouldn’t except that it would augment the type of person that I already am. In other words, I like video games so I might buy more of them. I like certain foods so I might buy better quality ones. I would be able to do the things that I already do but I would do them in an augmented way. That’s what money does. So no, it wouldn’t change the sorts of things that I do but it would sort of change the way that I act slightly because I’d go about doing those things with a bit more gusto (and gusto doesn’t necessarily mean greed). Lets be realistic.
Kristie asked: What is your absolute most favorite thing to eat/drink currently?
Well, Josh made me this burger tonight and it was amazing. I’ve still been trying to be healthy and I have been loving Yoplait’s Lemon Thick N Creamy Greek Yogurt since I can’t get Chobani over here. For lunch I eat carrots and hummus with rice crackers and some sort of sandwich. For a treat once in a while I indulge in a meat pie which I have come to adore. My favourite is mince and cheese.
Which age group do you enjoy and are most comfortable teaching? Little kids, middle school, high school?
I am certified to teach intermediate and secondary so I’ve never taught little kids before. As far as the other two are concerned I like both for their own reasons. I think middle school kids can be really sweet and not as hard to deal with disciplinary wise. I also love teaching high school too although I haven’t done it as much. I prefer teaching high school subjects because I find them more interesting and I think my own love for the subjects shows in my teaching and it becomes more interesting for my students.
What is your favorite brand of laundry detergent?
We are using one here now called Fab. It works fine. I’m not too fussy about laundry detergents. I usually buy whichever one is on special at the time that I run out. As long as my clothes smells nice and look clean, I’m happy. We wash our laundry and hang it outside to dry.
