Lazy Days




























 (Napping/bonding time with the love of my life) 


I know I mentioned in my last post that one of my New Years resolutions is to keep up this blog - and I'm still planning on doing that! - but truthfully, right now, there's just not a lot going on in my life for me to blog about! I've been home for exactly one month, and in that time I have basically been the laziest fat ass known to man. Okay, I do work part-time, I re-joined the gym, I have started some school applications and I've been working on some radio and voice over ideas. So not all time has been completely lost! But to be honest I spend most of my time at home cooped up in my bedroom. Though being lazy is completely and totally glorious (there will probably never be another time in my life where I can do this!) I am starting to get the infamous "January Blues". The holidays are over, which means all my friends are now scattered all over the country doing their own thing while I sit at home and figure out my life. I have some small travels planned in February that I'm looking forward to, but until then I've been trying to figure out ways to occupy my mind. 



My main solution as of lately: Tumblr. It has been my absolute salvation and creative outlet. It's one of those websites that I go on expecting to browse for ten minutes and then before I know it I'm glancing at the clock saying "WHEN THE SHIT DID IT BECOME 4AM!?" A link to my personal Tumblr is in the sidebar, if you have one follow me and I will follow you back! 



So the other day I while I was browsing, I found this survey going around. The idea is that you fill it out now (in January) and then in December you go back and take it again and compare your answers to see what's changed.  I thought this was a neat idea so I figured I would do it and post it here! Some are just basic "get to know you" questions but most of them warrant a change of mind.


1) Do you have any strange phobias?
Whales scare the crap out of me. Also I’m terrified of getting stuck
in an elevator.

A younger brother named Trevor and an older brother named
Rick!

      course.

23) Put your iTunes on shuffle. Give me the first 6 songs that pop up.

     I Wished On The Moon - Billie Holiday
     It's Only Rock N' Roll (But I Like it) - The Rolling Stones
    Trampled Underfoot - Led Zeppelin
    Wait - M83
    You Really Got Me - Van Halen
    Chop Suey - System of a Down

   This is actually a pretty awesome playlist. Random, but awesome.

25) Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 23, give me line 17.

     Dorian Gray, everyone. Oscar Wilde is a deep guy!


26) What does your latest text message from someone else say?
      My brother sent me a photo of his lunch. He was eating at Boudin Bakery
      and wanted me to be jealous! It worked. 

27) What does your URL mean?
      It’s just my name. But my blog name came about because my name
     is French for Alice & Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is my
     favorite book. So I made a not-so-clever play on words and got
     “Alyse in Wonderland”

28) What is your greatest weakness; your greatest strength?

     When I was fourteen I moved away from my hometown. I often think of what my life
     would have  been life if I stayed there.

      To blow all my money traveling Europe!

38) One night you wake up because you heard a noise. You turn on
      the light to find that you are surrounded by MUMMIES. The
      mummies aren't really doing anything, they're just standing around
      your bed. What do you do?

       Freak the FUCK out. Anyone who says they would do otherwise is LYING!

39) You accidentally eat some radioactive vegetables. They were good, and 
      what's even cooler is that they endow you with the super-power of your choice!
      What is that power?

       I’m ALWAYS torn between invisibility, teleportation and telepathy. This time I’ll pick 
       teleportation. I could REALLY use that at the moment! 

40) You are walking down the street on your way to work. There is a
      dog drowning in the canal on the side of the street. Your boss has told you
       if you are late one more time you get fired. What do you do?
  
       Save the dog. Then get a new job! 


**** 2014 update: I went back to this post a year later and realized that NONE of the answers to my  questions had changed!! So it was never updated! Still a nice "get to know you" survey though!
