-Answer the 11 questions from the person who nominated you.
-Choose 11 bloggers you adore with less than 200 followers.
-Create 11 questions for them to answer.
-Let them know you nominated them!

Sooo let’s get this started!
   1.    I went to an Aerosmith concert last night so I’m incredibly tired right now, excuse my lack of creativity!
   2.    My favourite smells are burning wood (like, campfires), old books, coffee, and grass after it rains
   3.    Candy cane hot chocolate is my Kryptonite and since its Christmas time right now, its finally out and I’m struggling to resist it.
   4.    I love love love comic book things. Specifically Marvel Comics, but I am a huge Superman (DC) fan as well- also I met Stan Lee, creator of Marvel this summer, it’s only been my dream since I was 5, nbd
   5.    I hate wearing shoes and socks. I’d much rather be barefoot
   6.    I hate being cold. I have a heater on at my feet as I type this
   7.    I’m writing a book about my year living with a hooker a couple years back. It’s already blossomed into a series… it’s taken me 2 years and I’m still on the first book…
   8.    I get distracted really easily. I forget things, and I procrastinate, so everything piles up and I’m basically ALWAYS swamped with work
   9.    I adore the crunch of leaves in the fall. And I’m never too old to mess up a stranger’s leaf pile by jumping in it. I love the snow, playing in it and I’m a rockstar snowboarder (14 years in my young 21-year life). Summer is also beautiful, I love the heat, swimming in the lake, etc. Because of this I never complain about the seasons because I love them all and can’t choose! Expect spring, I don’t care for April Showers bringing May allergies.
   10.  I fell out of the top of a massive tree when I was eight (I should basically be dead), as a result I have tiny scars (hardly noticible) all over my knuckles and inside of my biceps- I think they’re kinda cool
   11.  I have a birthmark on my ankle shaped like a heart

Emma’s Questions:
1)    What are two colors you love?
I’ve always been crazy for the colour green. I’ve also had a recent fascination with burgundy, I’m not sure why but it’s such a comforting colour.
2)    What is your favorite movie?
Ever After with Drew Barrymore. Hands down. That’s the movie that I watch whenever I’m sick or upset. I know it by heart so its really comforting to fall asleep to. But that’s followed close behind by the first Harry Potter movie. Definitely a fave in my books!
3)    Do you like pens or pencils?
Both! Pens are for notes and lists, pencils are for crosswords and filling in my calendars and agendas
4)    What is one of your guilty pleasures?
Only one? Well you already know about my candy cane hot chocolate addiction, so I’ll gove a different one- ice cream. I’m so suggestible when it comes to ice cream. Its awful.
5)    What is one thing you can't leave the house without?
I can’t leave without my clothes. Yeah think about that, nobody ever answers clothing to this question. Haha. But actually, a bottle of water. I’d be a mess without it
6)    What is one thing you'll never ever do in life?
I will NEVER sit in a bathtub full of creepy crawlies (bugs, snakes, etc)- no fucking way. Those people on Fear Factor have my respect, but no way in hell would I do it.
7)    What is one thing you've always dreamed of doing?
I’ve always dreamed of travelling the world. There are so many places I want to see and things I want to do and friends worldwide that I’d love to visit.  I’d also LOVE to be in the Olympics, but let’s be realistic, I’m good at a lot of things, but not Great at anything
8)    Has blogging changed your life at all? If so, how?
Blogging (albeit I’ve been terrible lately) has given me such a great support network to rely on. I know you guys are always around if I need you, and I know I’ve been terrible lately, but even still I can count on you guys to be there.
9)    How would the perfect date night go for you?
For me, the perfect date night would be doing something super romantic with my boyfriend (like going to the beach and having a night picnic, or camping, or basically anything, and it would end with a sparkly ring. We have been dating for EVER.
10) What's one thing you wish you could do better?
I wish that I could be a better blogger so I don’t disappoint you guys, and I wish that I was better at any one of my many sports so I could be a pro at something.
11) What's one thing you love about your family?
I love that my family is so relaxed. Being the first born, I had a lot more lenience by my parents than my sisters did, which has been great; my mom and I are really tight which I love. 


Sammy’s Questions:
   1.    who did you have sex with and why where were you on the night of yesterday
Babe, you know you want to know the sex question, butt last night I was actually at my boyfriend’s house ahaha ;)
   2.    describe your sexual orientation 
I’m hetero, but I’ve dabbled (once or twice)
   3.    what turns you on and no light switch jokes guise im onto you
Arms. Omg Idunno what it is lately, but my boyfriend has been working on getting into better shape, and his biceps are killing me lately, sooo sexy.
   4.    same thing; what turns you off
Feet. I think that other peoples’ feet are so disgusting. I, however have the most beautiful, ladylike feet ever. I love my feet. But others’ feet gross me out. I’d also have to say that my biggest turn off in the feet sense are wearing socks during sex. NOPE I’m out….
   5.    wat r ur views on incest
I read this book wayyyy too young (I don’t even know how I came across it) that was about incest, and thanks to that book, I can’t even handle the thought of incest, it gives me the heebie jeebies. Not that I’m being judgy, I just can’t think about it because it all goes back to that book.
   6.    coffee?
YES FUCKING PLEASE. Black. Looooveee me some coffee!
   7.    you are injected with something  that makes you so hypersexual you are attracted to every gender and need to have sex like right now; what do yo do
I would go have sex. Like right now. With whoever I came across next that I found attractive hahaa. (Basing this question on the theory that I’m single, the next person would probs end up being my roommate. Way she goes I guess haha)
   8.    what would you do if your Father was Satan
Dude, how’d you know? But seriously, being a strawberry-blonde (freakish mix of red and blonde hair), I’ve heard all the jokes, from “Satan’s Soul Collector” to “Satan’s Love Child”- I’ve accepted it, and I think Dad and I would have a lot of fun together ;)
   9.    did you once think your nipples were weird or is it just me
Nipples ARE weird.  Especially on boys. WHY DO YOU EXIST!!
   10.  how many times have you worn the same bra/underwear/boxers whatever for more than one day
Oh god, too many times to count. Every winter my friends and I go up to the chalet for a couple of days. No heat, etc, except for the wood fireplace. No fucking way am I stripping down to the nude to change my clothes when the ones I’m wearing are keeping me warm and I’m strapped into a snowsuit anyways so who cares haha!

In a Nutshell...

So, I promised that I would post again soon, and here I am, posting again soon.
Let me update you on my life from the past 6 months.
So I’m still dating my boyfriend, and we’ve been living together part time. I’m on a work term this semester at school, as you already know, so I spend some nights at my house and some at his. This will change in May however, because it looks like we’ll be moving in together for a little while at least! I graduate in May, which is scary as hell, but I’m totally ready for it. Minus the fact that I’ll be needing to find a job. So, naturally I’ll start looking soon, but depending on where I get a job, all of these “living together” plans may very quickly change, depending on what city I end up getting a job in. If it’s not one close to our school, that plan’s going to have to go out the window, since he has a year left in school still.
Oh, and over the summer I met Stan Lee! (She says, nonchalantly) – BIGGEST FREAKING DEAL OF MY LIFE! Like honestly, such a great experience, anndddd he hugged me. AND I got the hug captured in photographic evidence FOR EVER! WOO!
This semester I’ve started my final thesis project, which has been going swimmingly. I’m looking at dating violence in university/college aged students’ relationships, and how it correlates with attitudes people have about dating violence. It’s pretty interesting and I’m enjoying it so far which is great!
So I struggled with my restricting this summer since I spent most of my time with my family close by eating together and such, and since there’s no gym near our chalet, I was only able to run, which is fantastic, but I wish I could have done more in terms of working out.
That being said, I was able to get down to 144lbs, which is pretty friggen awesome if I do say so myself. I spent most of my summer at about 145 though, until a couple of weeks ago when I had friends down for Halloween (my favourite holiday of course). We drank, and ate. For 4 days. I gained 4 pounds. FML right? Well, since my last post, I’ve lost a pound, so I’m now at 148, and I intend to keep working my ass off for the rest of this week. I WILL be 145 again by Monday!
Soo, in terms of eating. Yesterday I fasted all day (yes, that’s also my latest thing, since I’m working, I just drink a TON of water, and don’t eat during the day- which works great, until I get home and binge. Sighhh) So I fasted all day, and then came home and my boyfriend had made these cheesy scalloped potatoes. Sounds deeeelish right? NOPE. Fucking disgusting. They were honestly like cheesy cardboard soup. Sooo I ate a few spoonfuls so to not offend him, and then I had a small piece of apple pie that he bought and that was it. Today, I’ve fasted so far (but I have a WICKED headache right now- because its cold in the office, not because of fasting), and I plan to go home and have some orange juice (fresh pressed of course). Buttt if my head is still killing me, I might make up some lentil rice business that I bought the other day.
Yes, that’s another thing, I bought myself a friggen juicer this summer. Best. Decision. EVER. Honestly, I’m pretty sure I managed to lose all that weight because of this juicer, I find it better than making smoothies because I can dilute it like crazy with water and it still tastes amazing, and I can get my veggies in there without it tasting disgusting!
Also, I got a tattoo. Of butterflies one for me and one for ma mère. I’ll post a picture eventually..
I feel like that’s everything up until now. Life’s been pretty busy, but boring for the most part. But how have you all been! I know I’ve talked to some of you pretty often via emails and such, but please, share with me your lives!
I’ll also of course check up on your blogs and such, but that will take some time to get all caught up on for each of you (alas, the downfall of being gone for so long).
À bientôt! xox

EDIT: I wrote this last Wednesday (yes, it took me until now to remember to post it- I wrote it at work and emailed it to myself in a document) Anywhoooo, its Monday now (as mentioned above my goal was to be 145. well, I'm not. 144.2 bitchesssssss! WOOOOO! SOOO HAPPY!!
That's all for now! xo
