21 Questions

Over the weekend I was tagged by Jenny from Breakfast at Lilly’s to join in on the fun little Q&A post floating around the blogosphere. Every time I see the title (21 questions), I can’t help but start humming the 50 Cent song, ha. Anyone else?

  1. Are you named after anyone? Nope! Rachel just seemed to stick when my parents were deciding on my name.
  2. When was the last time you cried? Sunday night when I was watching Room. If you haven’t seen it yet, make sure you keep plenty of tissues nearby! Holy emotions!
  3. Do you have kids? Just my furchild (dog), Sheba
  4. If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself? I’d like to think so!
  5. Do you use sarcasm a lot?  Oh yeah!
  6. Will you ever bungee-jump? I want to say yes, but I feel like I’d chicken out at the last minute.
  7. What’s your favorite cereal? It’s a tie between Cheerios and Chex. Kind of plain, I know.
  8. What’s the first thing you notice about people? How they carry themselves/interact with others.
  9. What is your eye color? Blue-green-grey. They kind of change, so it’s hard to pinpoint a color!
  10. Scary movie or happy endings? Both! Which one I watch depends on my mood, I suppose.
  11. Favorite smells? Fruity things and Bath & Body Works candles!
  12.  Summer or winter? Winter! Despite living in Florida, I’m not a fan of the heat, so I love when we get a few cooler days in the winter!
  13. Computer or television? I am addicted to both but as a blogger, I’ve got to say computer wins.
  14. What’s the furthest you’ve ever been from home? Budapest! It’s one of the best places I’ve ever visited!
  15. Do you have any special talents? My memory is a steel trap for song lyrics and pop culture trivia.
  16. Where were you born? New York!
  17. What are your hobbies? Blogging, traveling, hanging with friends/fam, and Netflix binge-watching, of course.
  18. Do you have any pets?  Yep! My pup, Sheba!
  19. Favorite movie? Hands down, Love Actually. Christmas + British people + romcom. YES.
  20. Do you have any siblings? Two younger sisters, who are my favorite people in the world!
  21. What do you want to be when you grow up? Is it possible to un-grow up instead? I just want to always be doing something that I enjoy and can learn and grow myself from!

To continue the fun, I’d like to pass the fun along and tag Alanna and Chelsie to complete the “21 Questions” thread!

    • Thanks, Annessa! I’m hoping to get back to Budapest again soon to do more exploring!

    Love this idea for a post! What a great way to get to know other bloggers.

    • I think so too! I love reading these kinds of posts too!

  • Your answer to favorite movie including British people in the reasoning cracked me up!

    • Welllllll, British people are the best! Haha. Happy to provide some laughs :)

  • Bree Hogan

    I’ve heard from several people now that Room is a movie well worth watching. Great round up :-)

    • Brie definitely deserved that Oscar for her performance! I hope you like it!

  • Live by Surprise

    What a great way to get to know you better!

    • Thanks! These types of posts are so fun to do and read from others!

  • That’s such a cute photo! Also your warning for The Room has been heeded!

    • Thank you! Did you get to see any of the Oscar nominated movies?

  • Belle Vie A Deux

    Oh My gosh thats so awesome you went to Budapest!!! I bet that was amazing!! Fun post!

    • We are! I realized that when I was filling out the questionnaire and comparing our answers, haha!

  • If you figure out how to un-grow I totally want in on it :)

    • You’ll be the first to know once I can figure it out! haha

  • So fun! I’d like to be tagged!

    • These are so fun! Tagging you via comment, so now you can “officially” do it too :)

  • Ooo, I want to see Room!!

    • It’s so good! Surround yourself with a few boxes of tissues though – you’ll need them!

  • love actually is the best! i don’t think i could ever bungee jump, for some reason i’d rather jump out of a plane haha.

    • It really is! Jumping out of a plane is something I wanted to try in “my younger days,” haha. Now I just have the worst case scenarios playing in my head. It seems like it would be SO fun though!

  • I love Love Actually too! Plus, it’s even better that it’s the original of those types of movies! I still need to finish up the book Room, but I’ve heard such great things about it and the movie!

    • So true! I seriously can’t get enough of it. I didn’t realize Room was a book! You’ll have to let me know what you think of the movie once you get around to seeing it!

  • I loved reading your answers! & I, too, think of the 50 Cent song every time I see this type of post!

    • Thanks, Lexi! Glad I’m not alone in jamming to 50 when these posts come up :)

  • I am dying to bungee jump or skydive in the very near future!

    • It wouldn’t surprise me if you end up doing it soon! I love your adventurous streak!

  • How fun! I love learning more about my fellow bloggers. :) I love all things British, so Love Actually is a favorite of mine, too!

    • Thanks, Natalie! I love reading these types of posts from other bloggers too! Yay for a fellow Anglophile!

  • Aww, I love these! Reminds me in middle school when we used to all do these surveys and email them around to each other.

    • Right! The high school Myspace days. I could do these for hours!

  • I love Chex and everyone always thinks I’m crazy haha I hope you celebrated National Cereal Day that was just a few days ago! I had about 3 bowls :)
