All Things Go
More Question Time!

Once again, I’ve been tagged, this time by Emily! She makes me very happy. So round two— let’s go!

Rule 1: Post the rules

Rule 2: Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post and then make 11 new ones.

Rule 3: Tag 11 people and link them to your post.

Rule 4: Let them know they have been tagged.


1. Do you like glitter? Why?

Yes.  My best friend, Nikki, says it’s the Herpes of the craft world because it never goes away.  I just think it makes things look snazzy.

2. What is your favorite kind of ice cream?

Mint brownie, Oregon strawberry, caramel butter toffee, Brown Cow, STICKY BUN (but only as a breakfast food)!!!

3. Have you ever been in love?

 I don’t know.  Some days I wake up with a fully formed notion of what that kind of love is.  I’ve been thinking about it recently, and I realized that I love a lot of people in different ways because there are so many types of love.  My favorite author, Jonathan Safran Foer, said, The more you love someone, he came to think, the harder it is to tell them. It surprised him that strangers didn’t stop each other on the street to say I love you.”  And I wholeheartedly believe that.  So I realized the way I try to feed my friends constantly has nothing to do with food or starvation, and when I say you’re spiffy, it means I love you.  I feed people because a wise, beautiful friend of mine taught me to cook good food for people you love.  I make mix tapes and CDs for friends because they say things better than I can and I edit people’s papers even though I live in a different state because doing that for them is love and leaving notes in people’s stuff is love and staying up so late that I get sick the next morning so that I can spend time with you is lots and lots of like.

4. Tell me of a really good day you’ve had.

One July morning, I snuck out of the house early and picked up a lovely girl named Prioyshi.  We drove to the coast to celebrate her and Aden’s birthday.  ”Wild Ones” and toxic pink cake and mermaid tails and sand castle wars.  It was perfect because I’m in love with the ocean and also with road trips.

Sitting by our Christmas tree, all lit up; decorating cookies with my little siblings; wrapping presents; listening to old Christmas tapes; the smell of potpourri.

Another fantastic day.  Midnight Walmart run; early weekend; drive down to Cedar City with a wonderful friend and the new Taylor Swift CD; snacks.  {Your shoulder made a nice pillow.}

5. Guilty Pleasures? 

More— listening to Hello Saferide songs loudly when I’m detangling my hair each morning, bringing up controversial issues at my conservative college to elicit reactions, Snapchat, chocolate covered cinnamon gummy bears (they taste like cancer, but like good cancer), Smart Water, stealing hotel room keys.

6. What are five little things you like that make you happy? 

  • Canadian television
  • receiving letters
  • writing other people letters
  • the ocean
  • The Mellow Mushroom

7. What is your favorite class you are taking/ have taken?

 My honors writing class is quite lovely right now, but my favorite is Political Science 110 because I like politics and also because I met a neat person in that class.

8. Nicest person you’ve ever met?

Amber Manning.  Michelle Milne.  Brogan Bouwhuis.  Just one?  Ack.  Mallory Matheson.  She’s my little sister and we’re pretty much best friends, nbd.  I can’t even tell you how much she means to me.  It’s kind of crazy.

9. What is the wallpaper on your phone?

My three siblings and I hiking near Mount Hood.  I miss them so it’s a reminder of them and of one of the prettiest places in the world.  I want to go hiking very badly.

10. Ever punched/been punched?

I got sent to the principal’s office in fifth grade for getting into a fight on my birthday.  Also, my beloved debate partner punched me at prom last year.

11. Last dream you can remember?

I was trying to impress a guy in my ward for my roommate Kenzie’s sake and there were zombies; my little brother and I were trying to fight off one that looked like Princess Leia in an attempt to make this guy fall madly in love with Kenzie.

New Questions!

  1. Favorite period in time and why?
  2. What song captures your soul in a soundbite?
