An Interview With Myself

Updated: Sep 1, 2023

I've been going through my old blog posts from the previous version of Shadow✨N✨Shine I had over on Wordpress and came across this gem that I'm sharing today. It's basically an interview with myself. This post though really and truly goes way back! I had this up in my "About Me" section when I had a Square Space website prior to Shadow✨N✨Shine. It had so much information and details on it I couldn't part ways with it over on Square Space, so I brought it over to Wordpress, and now I'm carrying it over here, just updated and brand new. I was looking at the date when this was last published and it was late August of 2020, so timing wise, here we are again. Same post, just updated, and three years later at the exact same time. I kinda did that on TikTok too. 🤣 Last August I posted a Halloween at HomeGoods video and here we are a year later and I posted a new Halloween at HomeGoods video. Apparently that's becoming a yearly tradition! I'm not sure if the Interview with Myself will be, but I do find the timing to be ironic with these things.


In other news, I figured I'd share this here and now, I have something BIG coming up in September for you guys! It's something I haven't put out there in two years and has been long overdue. It's festive, it's right in time for all of your autumn shenanigans, 🍁🍂 and I'll just leave it at that for now. 😉 I know, this is kinda a teaser, but I don't want to fully announce it just yet until it's physically in my hands. Once it's here, you guys will be in the know. 👍 So stay tuned!


Without further adieu, let's begin the interview with myself:

What Are Three Words To Describe You?

Loving, Bubbly, Fun

What’s Your Favorite Number And Why?

7, I just like it.

If You Had A Super Power What Would Be?

Read minds. I’d like to know what people are up to and how they tick, within reason of course. Some things I probably don’t want to know and of course it’d be nice to have the ability to turn it off so I wouldn’t be overwhelmed.

Tell Me About A Random Dream You Had?

In 6th grade I had a dream my teacher turned into a killer strawberry. For whatever reason I still remember that dream very well to this day. When I told her about it when it happened she rolled with it and told me not to tell her secret.

What Do You Bring With You Everywhere You Go?

I carry all my things in one of my Disneyland LoungeFly backpacks. All the necessities are in there like my wallet, keys, phone, makeup beauty bag with makeup products in it, antibacterial hand sanitizer, lotion, sunglasses, reusable straw, feminine products and a mini tarot deck in a tin container in case of any impromptu readings, as well as business cards. Thankfully those Loungefly backpacks hold a lot!

What Was Your Best Subject And Worst Subject In School?

Best: Music. Easy peasy, I love it, so it flowed naturally. Worst: Math. I don’t have the patience to find x,y,z,1,2,3. Once they started throwing the alphabet into it, I was like forget it. And not once in adult life have I used any of that.

What Sounds Like A Good Idea, But Really Isn’t?

Staying up late when I know I have to get up early. It’s like there’s two different versions of myself. The night owl that thinks I can handle it and it will be no problem and then there’s morning me, who hates night owl me because I feel like the living dead every single freaking time.

What’s Something You Can’t Do?

I can’t say the word statistics right. I screw it up every time.

What’s To The Right Of You Right Now?

My huge California coffee mug, phone, and my dog Shadow, fast asleep.

Tell Me About A Fun Childhood Memory?

Before my dad passed away every Christmas Eve just me and him, just the two of us, would take Christmas Eve horse and buggy rides. It was a special little tradition I will treasure in my heart forever.

Tell Me About Some Of Your Travel Experiences?

I love traveling! I’ve been to majority of the continental USA, minus the southern states (Florida exempt). Most of my vacations involve returning home to Chicago to visit family, since I’m in the Denver area. I used to travel by air a lot pre-Covid, but now road trips are my main way of travel, which is fine because I love a solid road trip. I’ve been to New York, the rockies, all the way up and down the west coast to Forks Washington, and everywhere in between. When I lived in Los Angeles for 15 years I spent much time all over Southern California. LA made it easy to access other places like Santa Barbara, San Diego, the Bay Area, Vegas, and more. Blessed to have had so many wonderful experiences and seen how beautiful our country is!

What Advice Do You Have To Give?

Never give up and always pursue your dreams! I know it’s cliche, but it’s true! Life is full of peaks and valleys. No one else is going to live your life but you, so you better be living it to its fullest so you don’t look back one day full of regret. Try not to live life just for the perks, but for purpose. It's in purpose you will find peace. There will be bumps along the way. It won’t always be easy, but oh my God, it will be worth it!
