50 Questions, Myspace Style


Remember MySpace? Maybe I’m showing my age. For the record, I’m 27, nearly 28. That puts me solidly in the middle of the younger half of millennials.

Felt silly taking this, but mirror selfies were totally the thing during my Myspace days.

I don’t really enjoy social media, but thinking of Myspace makes me nostalgic. I especially miss filling out surveys and posting bulletins, and of course, those cheesy mirror selfies. That was the original selfie. Also, all of this Zuckerberg nonsense that’s been in the news has me missing Tom. What a flower he was.

Since my blog is new, I thought a Myspace-style survey would be a good “get to know you” activity. So I decided to bring back the survey in this post below. If you’re reading this, I would really love it if you filled this out too, and let me know so I can read it!

  1. Do you like blue cheese? Yes, it’s actually my favorite.
  2. Have you ever smoked a cigarette? A few in my day. Not that I’m proud of it.
  3. Do you own a gun? No, but my boyfriend does and we live together.
  4. What flavor do you add to your drink at Sonic? I don’t go to Sonic. Any recommendations, in case I ever go?!
  5. Do you get nervous before doctor appointments? A little bit, yea. But I don’t really know what I’m nervous about.
  6. Do you like hot-dogs? Nope
  7. What do you prefer to drink in the morning? Water & black coffee
  8. Can you do push-ups? I can do about 5 before I need a break, and probably 20 total in 1 session.
  9. What’s your favorite meal? I don’t have a fav, it depends on my mood. Right now, I’m craving a burger & potato chips with corn on the cob. & crabs to pick. Clearly this craving is fed by nostalgia of picnics past.

  12. Do you work with people who idolize you? No…I don’t understand the motive of this question.
  13. Name a trait that you hate about yourself? My tendency to make a strong, bold statement without thinking, then realize it doesn’t reflect my actual feelings, then I need to back peddle and it always sounds disingenuous.
    Everyones hates it.
  14. Middle name? Elizabeth
  15. Name 3 thoughts at this moment: Am I really doing a myspace survey? Are people going to think that’s conceited of me? Are they going to fill out their own?

  37. Worst injury you’ve ever had? A few months ago when I started my marathon training, my quadriceps were pulled and I was afraid I was going to permanently damage them. Also a few months ago, I got rear ended really hard while stopped at a red light and had some whiplash. To be fair, this may not have been my worst ever, but it was my scariest. It took me a long time to think of this. I am lucky enough that I really haven’t had many injuries!

Except perhaps, raisins. I just don’t like that wet cherry stuff that tends to be in those chocolates. But toffee, caramel, peanut butter, peanuts (any nuts, really) are all tied for first place.
