Roxanne’s Questions: Answered

I apologize that it took me so long to finally post a response to your blog challenge/tag, but here it goes!

      1. If you’re married, what’s your favorite thing about being married? If you’re single, what’s your favorite thing about being single?
        I would have to say that the best thing about being single is the fact that I don’t have to worry about spending money on myself. This means that I can buy a plethora of various games, a new tv, computer, etcetera without fear that it’ll affect anyone (other than me), financially. 
      2. Where is your favorite place to shop?
        Amazon… Hands down!!! Everything is just so much cheaper when I buy from them, and the free 2-day shipping (as an Amazon Prime customer) doesn’t bother me in the slightest, either. Granted, when I’m in dire need of art supplies and/or craft supplies, I head over to my local Joann’s store. To be honest, I try to avoid impulsive buying by just looking at things online, as I have more of a tendency to buy things when I go somewhere. I often figure that if I wasted gas to get there, I might as well go home with something.
      3. How many kids do you want? Or if you’re done, how did you know your family was complete?
        I’ve always said that I want “as many kids as I can afford”, but to be honest, I would be fine with a minimum of two. I never really took into consideration the age difference of my kids until I’ve seen friends talk about how the age gap can hinder the possibility of them being friends as they grow up (as well as having things in common).
      4. What’s your favorite restaurant and what do you order?
        Another hands-down restaurant for me is Saburo’s down in Portland. I took some friends from Colorado there and I warned them that the sushi was known to be jumbo-sized, and they were shocked by how much they got for the price. They’ve told me that they spent well-over $80 for sushi before and weren’t even stuffe
        d, but our bill altogether was approximately $80 and they walked away with more leftovers than they could eat. Not to mention the restaurant is Japanese owned, which makes it all the better. Even my Japanese friends love it.
      5. Do you like your name? If you could change it to anything, what would it be?
        Growing up, I never liked my name. The fact that I could never find it on those souvenir license plates at theme parks, and gas stations always frustrated me. Not only that, but teachers were never able to pronounce my first name (let alone my last name) appropriately. Thankfully, it wasn’t until I got out of high school, started working and even started college that I began to enjoy how genuine and unique my name really is. I recall my mom telling me about the various names she was coming up with me and the fact that she contemplated naming me “Michelangelo” seemed pretty awesome (especially with my interest in the arts). It really makes me wonder if my given name would have changed or altered any of the decisions I’ve made in my life.
      6. What’s your dream vacation? Who would go with you, where to, how long?
        If money wasn’t an object I would travel around the world and explore every major continent (besides Antarctica). I think it would take at least a year to accomplish and I would take (or even fly-in) my closest friends, my Mom, and little brother (whenever they were available) to meet me along the way.
      7. What’s your most embarrassing moment?
        To be completely honest, I really can’t recall an event where I legitimately felt embarrassed…
      8. What’s one of the scariest things you’ve ever done?
        I would have to say that although it wasn’t necessarily “scary” as it was invigorating, skydiving was the most incredible experience I have yet to experience. Although it was definitely scary the closer I got to the open door, 5000 feet above the ground, free-falling was evanescent but so amazing at the same time. I’d definitely do it again, someday.
      9. Would you be on a reality show? Which one?
        The Kagi’s and I have always talked about having our own reality tv show, where a camera crew just followed us around and recorded our crazy antics and conversations. A lot of great moments we’ve shared require you to “be there”, so a reality show would be perfect to convey how awesome our show would be.
      10. Who is your celebrity crush? Do you like them or a character they played?
        Hmmmm… I don’t really follow celebrities or their lives, but I would have to say that up-and-coming star Benedict Cumberbatch is an amazing actor. He’s not only an awesome Sherlock on the British Sherlock tv series, but also does an outstanding job playing Kahn on Star Trek Into Darkness and does an even more phenomenal job as the voice of Smaug in The Hobbit
