WWTK Wednesday

I cut the grass last night. Which means I'm a big, sneezy mess today that the Reactine has only mildly helped with. Oh, and I still have my incurable lung disease, which is making me more and more nervous every day. The more people say, "You should get that checked," the more I want to pretend it's somehow just a side-effect of my allergies.

Yeah. That's what it is. Pollen. In my lungs. I'm dealing with it, alright?

So. To distract myself from the allergies and the lung disease, I'm linking up with these fab hostesses - Impulsive Addict, Mamarazzi, Janette, and Seriously Shawn - for "We Want to Know Wednesday".

Here are this weeks questions:

{1} You have been asked to give a 10 minute speech to teenage girls. What is it about?
{2} Do you have a pet? Tell us about them. No pets? Why?
{3} What is the biggest inconvenience about the place you’re currently living?
{4} What do you think is the single best decision you have made in your life so far?
{5} What are the THREE "nevers" of your life? (things you would never do or have never done)

{1} You have been asked to give a 10 minute speech to teenage girls. What is it about? Enjoy every minute of your youth. You think you want to be grown up, but it's really not all that it's cracked up to be. Dance with the cute boys, but don't hang all your hopes on them. Be a strong person, continue your education, and make sure you're capable of looking after you, because you can't always count on the "happily ever after". Be able to make yourself happy, because at the end of the day, that's all that really matters.

{2} Do you have a pet? Tell us about them. No pets? Why? I have two fish, Marley and Jackson (named after Bob Marley and Michael Jackson). I also had a Presley, but he died only a few days after I got him. But Marley and Jackson are doing quite well, despite the days they have to swim around in green slime. They're tough fish. You can read about the day I got them here!

{3} What is the biggest inconvenience about the place you’re currently living? I'm actually pretty lucky in where I live. A nice, big, old house that is in fairly decent shape, and the rent is cheap. There have been some kinks over the past few years (bats in the walls and attic, being the major one), but they've pretty well all been worked out. Sure, there's things I would like to change (my next project is painting the stark-white walls), and ultimately I'd like to own my home rather than rent. I also would like to move out of "the downtown core" of my small town (I'm surrounded by questionable characters who hold drinking parties on their front porches at all hours of the day). But otherwise, not much to complain about!

{4} What do you think is the single best decision you have made in your life so far? Accepting the job here at Mountainview. I was miserable working in the city. I hated traveling, I hated where I worked, and I cried every morning when I had to leave. Coming to work here has made a huge difference in my life. I'm happy. I like being so close to home, and I like that I don't have to get up for work at 5:30 AM!

{5} What are the THREE "nevers" of your life? (things you would never do or have never done)
I have never and will never do drugs.
I would never settle for anything less than I believe I deserve.
I will never cheer for the Toronto Maple Leafs. Ever.
