  1. Screen Shot 2016-05-06 at 5.57.43 PMWhy did you start your blog? I first started my blog as a way to hold my self accountable. I had hit rock bottom and was miserable. I wanted a place where I could be brutally honest with my self, and a group of people. It has turned into a tool that has helped make me a better and healthier person! Now I hope to help other people in simillar situations see that they can be happy and improve their life as well!

  7. Favorite season and why? Winter! I love the cold and the snow, there is something to peaceful and calming about a fresh snowfall
  8. Favorite artist/band? This answer is always changing, I love finding new music all the time,  I have to say one of my relatively new favorites would be Patrick Droney!
  9. What inspires/motivates you? I try to find motivation in everything I do, but probably the desire to create a better life for my self and family. My aunt is a huge inspiration for me. Also everyone on here and everyone I meet through youtube, and instagram! Screen Shot 2016-05-06 at 6.02.34 PM

  2. Thank you so much for your nomination Ruzele! I don’t know many bloggers, so I won’t nominate any new ones, but I thought at least I could answer your questions:

    When and why did you start blogging?
    February 2016 I think. But I was blogging for years about ten years ago. I have since removed that blog though.

    The most impactful quote you have ever heard?
    “I am the architect of my life; I build the foundations and I choose its content” – don’t remember where it’s from, but it has been key to my change

    What book changed your life?
    I’m not sure any one book changed my life. I read a lot – but I guess the first book I remember made a big impact on me was Khalil Gibran’s “The Prophet”

    Your favorite place to workout?
    In nature! hiking with good friends

    What motivates you in a time of depression?
    having lived with depression most of my life that’s a difficult question to answer. But something that often helps is spoiling myself. Make a good cup of tea, listen to my favorite music, Have a hot bath, go for a walk in the sun, call a friend. Anything that takes my mind off how I feel.

    What movie could you watch over and over?
    The BBC version of “Pride & Prejudice” and Avatar

    If you could travel anywhere, where would it be and why?
    Machu Picchu – Total History geek 🙂 and I already have been to Pompeii which has always been on top of my bucket list.

    Who has been the most influential in your journey so far?
    Probably my friend TJ who is also Trans. He’s an amazing support even if he lives on the other side of the big ocean 🙂

    Do you listen to music through head phones or speakers?
    Headphones – unless I’m home alone. I share a house with 4 others

    What do you hope to accomplish in your life?
    To finally get to know the real me – and to accept who I am.

    If you could do ANYTHING with no consequences and no limitations, what would that be?
    oh my… So many things *lol*
    but mostly I would like to be an inspiration to people
