    Hi Taralynn! In one of your answers, you said in ten years you hope you’ll be where you want to career wise, and not blogging full time. Out of curiosity, what are your career goals? 🙂

    I choose 3 questions 🙂

    * Are you scared of anything?
    Yes, the dark and insects in general, yuck, I can’t help it. All of them! And then death, but I try not to think about it.

    * Favorite city?
    Probably Paris, though when I lived there for a month I hated it, but for holidays… the best. And I would love to visit Charlotte, your pictures make me look forward to it!

    * What’s the last thing you’ve done that was crazy?
    This was 4 years ago but it’s the craziest I can think of right now: taking a bus to a city that was 540 km from where I live (around 336 miles) to spend a weekend with a guy I had met through the Internet (and hadn’t seen in person yet). It didn’t go well xD He was nice though.

    ***My question for you***
    Would you like to visit Spain one day? If so, which city? 🙂 (and can you say something in Spanish? :P)

    (sorry if this appears twice but I never see the confirmation message after I post!)

    I love this! I missed it when you posted it. Surveys like this are so much fun! I love doing them! Ok my answers are: 1) Yes I remember lyrics. It’s weird how many and easily I do. 2) I am allergic to cedar and any laundry detergent besides Tide. 3) I always sing in the car. I even have playlists just for that! Question for you: If you could choose one thing to do all day, what would it be?

    OMG popsicle sticks seriously make me cringe just as bad as spiders do. It is the absolute worst feeling ever and I don’t eat popsicles because of it. I have no idea what it is, texture maybe? SO glad to hear of someone else hating them because everyone thinks I’m so weird haha.

  • Caitlyn

    Would you eat a live spider for one million dollars?
    No, and not for the reason you think, spiders don’t bother me. It’s the fact that I would feel SOOOO bad for eating a live spider making it suffer like that, most of the time I don’t squish them, I just take the outside.

    Do you own any pets?
    Yes, I actually have 3 fur babies, 1 dog and 2 cats and they are the most important part of my life, I work to provide them the best life that I can (and to pay bills, but ya know)

    Ever won a spelling bee?
    Actually, back in middle school I almost made it to the statewide level, but they made us spell this word that I couldn’t even begin to tell you how to spell now that I’m in college. It was ridiculous.

    Reply to Caitlyn
    • Taralynn McNitt

      That makes you a better person than I am!

      So man pets 🙂 love it! & my dog is my child too lol

      Well congrats to you for making it statewide! I was good at memorizing words for spelling test, but don’t ask me how to spell something on a whim! lol

    Just now seeing this post, but I love these random surveys, they ask questions // things that may never come up otherwise.

    My lucky # is also 13, I think because growing up everyone hated it. And it meant I never had any competition if we had to pick a number for a sports jersey or something.

    39. What’s the best music gig you ever attended?
    Big All Time Low fan, but the best show I think I’ve ever seen was Blink 182 – when they still had all their original members. I saw them here in Pittsburgh & then drove to Philly with my BF at the time to see them there since he was from the area. Travis Barker still blows my mind.

    83. Do you like pie?
    Hell yeah I like pie. I make a pretty good pie from scratch, crush included when I want to, but actually, my brother makes pie to end all other pies. So. Good. Even when we follow the same recipe.

    100. Ever won a spelling bee?
    Actually, yes. I won with the word “definitely”. Which, I once got into a fight with my ENGLISH teacher about in HS because she was spelling it wrong, over & over. Then she sent me to the principals office.

    For you…what are a few new to you destinations (domestic or international) that you’re itching to visit?

  • Kaila

    Favourite Disney Princess? Rapunzel always and forever! But before her it was definitely Ariel!

    What was/is your favorite school subject? History has always been my favorite school subject! So much that I’m majoring in it at college!

    Do you believe in ghosts? Yes yes yes yes. I’m on a mission to visit as many haunted places as possible in Boston/MA!

    Question for you: What is your favorite holiday and what is your least favorite holiday?


    Reply to Kaila
    • Taralynn McNitt

      I love Ariel too!!!I really love them all.

      So cool! I like history too.

      THAT IS AMAZING!!! Let me know if you visit any really cool places. I love ghost stories/encounters.

      Favorite Holiday is Christmas. Least? St. Patricks Day.

    Favourite Disney Princess? Definitely Belle, as a child I found her easy to relate to because like me her head was always in a book.
    Ever peed in the woods? Funnily, I was never into nature as a child and my grandmother took me for a bike ride and had to teach me. I found the entire event to be traumatizing and so disgusting. I have had to do it multiple times since then, when hiking or whatever but that one event always sticks out in my mind.
    Food I crave for no reason? I’m definitely with you on sweet potato fries, or just sweet potatoes in general, I could eat them all day everyday.

    Here’s my question: if you had to move to a country, other than the states, where would you move?

    If you could choose one color to wear for a whole year, what color would you choose?

    Do you believe in ghosts?
    Yes, not the spooky halloween ghosts thought, more like spirits.

    Summit (beer) ice cream!
