This will be a weekly post of the most random of random questions to answer- to share my world! Thanks to Cee’s blog for being the brainchild behind this!
How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are? This is a very interesting question. Do I not know how old I am because I am ignorant of the concept of time? Or because I am a Time Lord? (Should I open that fob watch…?) If I were ignorant of the concept of time, I would not be any age, because I wouldn’t know that there are numbers associated with the passage of time. It would be like what heaven will be like: eternity, where time doesn’t pass, it just is.
So, you’re on your way out and it’s raining. Do you know where your umbrella is or do you frantically search for it all over your apartment/house? My umbrella is always in my car. Good old Gust-Buster. That thing is 13 years old and survived the wind throughout six years at my very windy college (seriously, there’s a wind farm next to campus now) and has never once turned inside out.
Do you recharge your energy by going out with friends for a good time or by spending with quiet time alone? Alone! I must be alone! I am an INFJ.
Name three things you and your spouse, partner or best friend to have in common. Ok, what do hubby and I have in common?
- We are both pharmacists.
- We both love cats.
- We both love Doctor Who.
Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? From last week, I am most grateful for the response of the endometriosis community to one of my blog posts. I have been reblogging my endo-related posts (that I wrote last summer when I started my blog) all month since March is Endometriosis Awareness Month. I was going to share this post, which for some reason unbeknownst to me is my most popular blog post ever, but before I could, other endo organizations picked it up from when I published it last year, shared it to their social media networks, and my blog set two record days for views last week, adding 3,629 views…without me having to lift a finger. That post has now been viewed 6,020 times, which for my little blog is an astounding number. I am grateful that the endo community found such worth in that post, and I am hopeful that it helps people, which is the whole point of this blog, to raise awareness about various chronic illnesses.
For this week, even though I am not participating, Saturday is the 4th Annual Worldwide EndoMarch, taking place in over 65 countries around the world. I marched in 2015 in Washington D.C and it was amazing. Someday I will again, I hope. But I love how the event is getting bigger and bigger every year and more awareness is being raised about this terrible disease that 176 million women (that’s 1 out of 10) suffer from.
