Questions from Sofia

1. Why did you begin blogging? when deciding what to post, what inspires you?

I began blogging my senior year of college to remember my trip to South Africa. I now blog about my adventures in running and everything else that I want to remember. I am inspired by good people, who find themselves in difficult situations, but choose to help others despite their personal pain.

2. If you could live anywhere else in the world, where would you live and why?

If I could live anywhere, I think I would live in Hawaii or Walt Disney World. Although I have never been to Hawaii, I think it would beautiful to wake up and see the beautiful ocean everyday. I love Disney World and wouldn't mind living in Florida. I would miss the snow in Michigan, but wouldn't mind visiting during the winter either.

3. Do you have any pets?

I wish we could have a tea-cup yorkie, but our apartment complex won't let us have animals . Maybe someday when we live in a house!

I could watch Christmas Vacation over and over or Home Alone!

To work at Disney World! I don't care what the job would be! I just would love to work at the Happiest Place on Earth!
