So I’m slowly starting to post a bit more on my blog after months of zero motivation. It’s still not fully back but we’ll just see what happens. I was tagged by one of my favourites, Laura @ thebookcorps to do the 100 Truths Tag and it looked pretty fun! Please check out Laura’s blog, she does great posts and reviews, and I love talking to her because she is an awesome human being!!
1) What’s Your Name?
2) Any Nicknames or Alisases?
I get called Steff or Steffy by most people because I actually hate being called by my full name, it makes me feel like I am in trouble. Also, Steffy Jay is my stage name. I’m not a performer, it’s just what I would autograph if I was famous haha.
3) Your Gender?
4) Your Star Sign
5) How Old Are You?
32 – THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH IT
6) Your Relationship Status?
Married for 10 years in January, and it’s our 15 year anniversary in November this year.
7) Any Children?
8) Any Pets?
I have 2 beagles (Melvin and Lucy), 3 kitties (Peanut, Poppy and Bluey) and a turtle (we just call him Turpin because it’s a mix between Turbo and Franklin).
9) Any Tattoos or Piercings?
I have my ears and nose pierced. I also have a half sleeve of the Heir of Fire cover on my right arm.
10) What Do You Like About Yourself?
I’m a very honest person. Not in a “in your face” kind of way. But if I fuck up I will tell you. If I’m unhappy I will tell you (in a nice way) and if I love you I will tell you.
11) What Do You Dislike About Yourself?
My mental illness, I wish it would fuck off.
13) The Last Thing You Drank?
14) The Last Thing You Ate?
Oats with milk and honey…mmmmm
15) Your Last Phone Call
My beautiful sister, just talking about life and how she really needs to get Netflix.
16) Your Last Text Message
Me messaging my husband about taking time off at Christmas. Boring.
17) Your Last Email
Ehhh I send emails all day at work so I couldn’t even tell you.
18) The Last Song You Listened To:
I am OBSESSED with Santigold’s new album and I absolutely love this song.
19) The Last Book You Read:
Ruin by John Gwynne (Book 3 in the Faithful and the Fallen series). I am loving this series so much!!!!
20) The Last Time You Cried
Last week when I found out someone I know passed away.
21) The Last Blog Post You Read
Laura’s 100 Truth’s Tag hahaha.
22) The Last Person You Spoke To:
My husband. I told him to have a nice day and he was like “naaah”.
23) The Last Place You Visited:
The Gold Coast to see one of my sisters.
24) Your Last Holiday Abroad
I went to Wisconsin and New York in December 2016/January 2017. It ended up being bitter sweet because the people we went with who were our best friends, decided to ghost us when we got back to Australia. So now when I look back on that trip I find it hard to feel happy, even though I met some amazing people and did some awesome things over there. Oh and I highly recommend cheese curds!!!
YOUR BELIEFS AND OPINIONS
49) Do You Believe In Aliens
Of course I do!!! There is absolutely NO WAY we are the only ones in the universe.
50) Do You Believe In Miracles
I really, really don’t. I think things happen can happen that are unexplainable, but how do we know that it wasn’t already meant to happen?
51) Do You Believe In The Power Of Positive Thinking?
Umm no. I could be the most positive person in the world and still feel anxious and get depressed. I do think that positive thinking is contagious though, just like negative thinking.
52) Do You Believe In Love At First Sight?
Nope. To me, falling in love at first sight means that you fell in love with looks. It’s really like falling in love with a celebrity. You are loving them based on their exterior and most likely their persona they display for the media/fans etc.
53) Can Money Make You Happy?
As someone who grew up in a low income household, I would definitely say yes. I can think of a million times that it would have made me happier or just made life easier. That being said, having money doesn’t take all of your worries away.
54) Would You Describe Yourself As A Feminist?
Yes!! Although I like to think of it more as “equalitist” (if that’s a word). Feminism is about raising ALL women up. It’s about equality for EVERYONE. It’s about supporting everyone and not tearing people down. It’s about progressing and ensuring that EVERYONE is treated the same and that certain groups aren’t treated differently.
55) Are You Pro-Life or Pro-Choice?
56) Do You Have Strong Political Beliefs?
Hell yes I do. I very much consider myself left-wing and that doesn’t always go down with people who don’t have the same opinion as me…i.e. Donald Trump supporters. (Or if you are in Australia, Pauline Hanson supporters).
57) Do You Have Strong Religious Beliefs?
Nope. BUT I do like to think there is something out there. I believe in ghosts and the afterlife. I even believe in angels to an extent. But when it comes to the other stuff, well, I’ll just have to wait and see.
58) What Do You Think The Most Important Thing You Can Give A Child Is?
Unconditional love. Unfortunately this is something that wasn’t really provided by my family, either because I wasn’t born a boy, I didn’t live in the country or I wasn’t like my other family members. It’s amazing how much it has affected me and how ready I am for rejection or for someone to leave me.
59) Are You Eating Anything Right Now?
Nope. I wish I was eating a doughnut or something though.
60) Are You Drinking Anything Right Now?
Just trying to keep hydrated with water…boring.
61) What Are You Listening To Right Now?
My brain which is usually thinking a thousand things at once
62) What Are You Thiking About Right Now?
Work, my upcoming surgery, my sisters, my cat, and that I really need to pee but don’t want to get up.
63) What Are You Waiting For Right Now?
I go for breast-reduction surgery on 29 October. I’m excited but so fucking nervous.
64) What Are You Most Excited About Right Now?
2 of my sisters are due to have babies in January. I can’t wait to meet my new little niece and/or nephew or both.
65) What’s Your Pet Peeve Right Now?
The state of Australian politics and how we can’t keep our Prime Ministers….because the people surrounding them are backstabbing idiots. Australia likes to be super critical of America, however we have refugees rotting away on an island and we refuse to let them into the country. We have a PM that doesn’t support teachers supporting trans-kids because they “don’t need gender whisperers” and “let kids be kids”. We have politicians who give zero fucks about the minorities in this country, and it breaks my heart.
66) What’s Your Favourite Thing Right Now?
My pets. Always.
67) If You Weren’t Answering These Questions, What Would You Be Doing Right Now?
What most people who are reading this would be doing….reading 🙂
68) Your First Best Friend:
Her name was Anna. We lost touch in highschool but then met up when she moved to Brissie. She is still as beautiful and lovely as ever.
74) Your First Job:
I worked at Red Rooster as a cashier. Some of my best times were working there, they really got me out of my shell.
75) Your First Childhood Memory:
I lived across the road from a football oval. There was a televised game on tv, so I kept running between the lounge room and the front room to look at the oval, so that I might be on tv.
WHICH WOULD YOU CHOOSE
76) Love or Money?
Love definitely. Because you need to have good people around you when you are broke as fuck.
77) Twitter or Facebook
Twitter!!! I deactivated my facebook a year ago because I got over all the bullshit on there. So much negativity, and too many life stories and attention-seeking for my liking.
78) Hook up or Relationship?
Relationship. When I was in highschool and I was at parties, my friends would be hooking up with people while I would be sitting on my own waiting for them to finish…not sad at all hahahaha.
79) Dogs or Cats?
Both. I absolutely LOVE animals, so couldn’t choose one over the other.
80) Coffee or Tea?
Coffee first thing in the morning. Tea for the rest of the day.
81) Beer or Wine?
Scottish whiskey haha.
82) Sweet or Savoury?
Omg I LOVE sweets. It’s a problem.
83) Introvert or Extrovert?
Depends on the situation. I would get up and sing in front of people I don’t know and generally make myself look like a fool because I don’t really care too much what people think of me. However, I am shy and don’t like going to social events and would prefer being at home with my husband and pets. Get to know me and I won’t shut the fuck up. So I guess you could say I’m an ambivert, leaning more towards introvert.
84) Vampires or Werewolves?
Vampires for sure. I never liked werewolves, probably because they are always portrayed as bikies….which I have never really understood.
85) Seaside or Countryside?
Countryside because I’m not a beach goer at all. I almost drowned at the beach when I was a kid, so I don’t like going in the water. The countryside is beautiful and peaceful, and there are usually cows. And I love cows.
86) Summer or Winter?
Ummm….I don’t really prefer either. Spring is really the best time because it’s a bit cool but a bit warm. Summer in Australia makes you want to rip your skin off from being so uncomfortable.
87) Books or Movies?
I love both!!! I am who I am because of movies, I was practically RAISED on them. So I think my sense of humour and my way of viewing the world comes alot from the various movies I watched.
88) Horror or Comedy?
I absolutely LOVE horror, even though it is really, really hard to find a good horror movie.
A FEW RANDOM QUESTIONS TO FINISH UP ON
89) Do You Wish You Could Change Your Past?
Not at all. Even when some of it was shit and fucked up, it made me who I am today.
90) What’s Your Dream Job?
Veterinary or cinematic make-up
91) What’s Your Guilty Pleasure?
Reading a book non-stop while eating doughnuts.
92) What Are You Afraid Of?
Humans. I generally keep away from shows about true crime because humans are capable of such horrible things, and I literally get nightmares from watching true crime.
93) What Was The First Thing You Wanted To Be When You Grew Up?
A teacher! I used to hang out in my bedroom all day and play schools with my teddies. I would draw up exams for them, answer them for each teddy and then mark them. Of course, I would give bad marks to my least favourite student haha.
94) If You Could Have Any Super Power, What Would It Be?
A shapeshifter, like Mystique on X-Men!!
95) If You Could Change Anything About Your Life What Would It Be?
The only thing I would change would be to not have anxiety/depression. They rule my life, even while I am on medication, and I have lost friends/experiences because my life revolves around me being anxious about getting a panic attack and not having an escape option.
96) Would You Want Immortality?
Only if I was beautiful and stayed that way haha.
97) If You Could Interview Anyone Alive Or Dead Who Would You Choose?
I know she’s a character, but Jess of New Girl. I think we would be great friends because we are quite alike.
98) Would You Say You Are Happy?
Mental illness aside, yes I would say I am.
99) What One Piece Of Advice Would You Give To Yourself At Age Eighteen?
Be your wonderful, wierd self and don’t let people dictate how much of your personality you should show. Don’t try to please people because it will just end up making you unhappy. And eat as many doughnuts while you can.
100) Where Would You Like To Be In Five Years Time?
Omg I would be 37!!!!! I would hope to be the same as now. With my husband, chilling with my animals, reading books and talking shit on twitter.
I’m not very good at tagging people, but if you want to do this one consider yourself tagged!!!!
