Hey so I thought we'd try something different for a change! I realise that a lot of the times my posts aren't the happiest, and are mostly updates on what's been going on in my life. Which has been a bit of a rollercoaster for the past months.
SO, I decided to do a get to know me post, with around 10 questions each time! If you do have questions you'd like me to answer aswell, you can always ask them here or on twitter!
Here goes nothing!
- Are you named after anyone?
I am named after my great-grandmother and my aunt. My great-grandmothers name was Constantina, which my mother dutchified to Kirsten-Ann, which isn't the same, but it's similar in honour of her. My second name is Joëlle which is how my aunt was called. She was there to catch me when my mother gave birth and has been a big part of my life. I am honoured to be named after two really strong women.
- When was the last time you cried?
I cry a LOT. I am a very emotional person and I will literally cry over anything. A cute kitten post, a sad commercial on TV, receiving flowers, ANYTHING. So the last time I cried was.. two days ago.
- Do you have kids? If no, how many do you want?
I do not have any kids at the moment, and for the longest time I didn't want any in the future. However, biology works in funny ways and with all my friends/aquaintances getting pregnant I'm finding that baby fever is a thing that I haven't been vaccinated for. There are no plans on getting a baby, and I have no idea how many I would want. I'm an only child(with two half brothers from another mother), but I grew up as an only child, so I can't really imagine what it's like having brothers/sisters. Therefor one child would be logical, but who knows, maybe I become some kind of broody hen and can't stop having children?? We will see when the time is right. For the next 4/5 years I'll definitely be child-free!
- If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?
That's a difficult question. I am a very introverted person who can only stand people for so long. Knowing this I probably wouldn't be.. or maybe I would, because I am quite a low maintenance friend? We don't have to call every day, we don't have to go out every week. I'm like those plants that you can just leave unwatered for 6 months and will survive and love you regardless. You know what, hell yes I'd be my friend.
- Do you use sarcasm a lot?
Only when it's needed.
- What’s the first thing you notice about people?
Their eyes. Definitely their eyes. I think there is so much to them, every one being a little gem and seeing the fire flicker in some of them is a wonderful thing.
- What is your eye color?
My eyes are hazel.
- Scary movie or happy endings?
I'm terrible with scary movies so happy endings all the way!
- Favorite smells?
The rain, firewood, peaches, fresh cut flowers, anything with musk in it, home baked goods.
- What’s the furthest you’ve ever been from home?
I'd say when I lived in Sweden because it's also the longest I've been gone from 'home'. But I don't know if that'd be true because Sweden was my home for nearly 2 years. It was a good place to come home to, always made sure it was cozy, had some candles and blankets and we always tried to instill it with good vibes, right until we couldn't any more. So you know what, I'm switching my answer to Greece, even if it was only a vacation, because the appartment I lived in was home.
I'll be doing around 10 of these questions each week, and like I said, don't be afraid to ask/comment on any of them, whether it's here or on twitter/instagram.
Until next week, my loves!
How do you define happiness? How do you define success?
