I’d like to meet you

Now, I usually don’t try to fill out these sort of questionnaire type of things, but I’ve seen this going around several blogs and decided to give it a shot. The blog in particular that I got this from is called New Romantic, and the site is so beautiful and inspiring. Evelyn, the blogger, is awesome. Check her out!

Something about this “meme” is interesting to me. Maybe it’s because I try to use too many words to describe simple things, and it gets tiring. In any case, I decided to have a change from my usual extremely wordy posts.

Enjoy!

  8. so when I filled this out earlier I wasn’t paying attention to the answers I erased and rewrote mine. I just noticed we both put obsidian… :D. I don’t know why, but I’ve always found it to be so pretty!

  9. I love this! I wish I had more time right now, so I could fill it out. It is 4am and I still haven’t slept. So I must be trying to get some sleep….and I mean TRYING! It has been quite hard lately. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Even though things aren’t bad for you like you said, I hope they do become as good as they should be!

  10. Abby, I love this — I do feel like I know you better. I thought about what my answers would be as I went along and read yours: some came to me easily, others I’d have to think about more. But I can tell you that if I were a time of day, I’d be 6am, and if I were a color, I’d be blue (the color blue the sky is sometimes at night, before the sun goes down completely). Your blog is always such a dream.

  11. The writer writes.
    The reader reads and interprets.

    From this reader to you, the writer, here’s what you told me in your post: you’re introspective, earthy, relaxed, open-minded, creative (but, oh so practical when you need to be!), expansive, imaginative, brimming with love and aching to share it, adventuresome (but the casual observer would NEVER know it), you’re always hopeful and you have a long-held, unshakable belief in the triump of good.

    Have a great weekend, Abby!

    Love-
