WHY DID YOU START A BLOG IN THE FIRST PLACE?
I always had a passion for writing and kept a diary from little on. It was my confidant, something that always listened to me, even though it never spoke back. It knew my heart and my struggles growing up without a Father. It always had time for me when I was ready to talk (write) and it never judged me. Qualities that I still found missing in the real world as an adult. I decided to share my journey in the hopes of helping others who might struggle. To offer a different perspective, to show that it can be done and to hopefully inspire and motivate. Further I would like to become a writer (Storyteller) and this platform is a great way to see if anybody would even care to listen to my ramblings 😉
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE BOOK?
This is very difficult to pick only one and if you follow my blog, then you know that I’m a bit of a bookworm. If I had to pick one for the sake of the “Now” and what is currently inspiring me, I would have to pick a recent book that my friend Kyle Rohrig has written after finishing a Thru-Hike of the Appalachian trail. This book inspires me beyond means and has been a key piece for me on my own spiritual journey of living to the fullest vs. being alive. It is down to earth as he writes in the same manner he would talk to you and it is a true testament to the human spirit and that anythjng is possible. It is full of dedication and discipline, a hunger for a life away from conventional norms. Inspired by comradeship and bonds, a means of finding what truly matters while being stripped down to a “less is more” theory, it showcases the adventures that will fuel the memories of a lifetime. It’s a must read for anyone who considers themselves to be an adventurer, hiker, freedom seeker or has questions on how to escape the routine and do more of what YOU like. Since completing the Appalachian Trail, Kyle and his Shiba Inu Katana aka Catfox have completed the Pacific Crest Trail and are starting their triple crown adventure of the 3100 mile long Continental Divide Trail tomorrow. If you would like to follow their adventures you can do so here at Boundlessroamad. Let’s cheer them on in the quest of a lifetime.
WHAT DO YOU DISLIKE THE MOST?
I would have to say arrogance and entitlement while belittling other people. We are all in the same boat, we all bleed the same and it is not about cutting the next person down but rather lending a hand while helping each other. Nobody is better and we all deserve only the best. Life is tough enough but it’s also beautiful.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE FOOD AT THE MALL?
Mmmmh that is a tough one since I don’t eat at the mall. But if I had to, I’d probably have Chinese food to offset the fast food guilt with lots of vegetables and something halfway nutritional.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE PAST TIME?
Being on my own time to pursue whatever of my many interests peaks at that given time. I love hiking, writing, travel, photography, art, reading, music, my motorcycle, creating some sort of crafts, animals, knitting etc. It’s really limitless as I explore many different avenues to always discover new hobbies and favorite past times. I love to push the boundaries between reality and the fairytale that I try to encompass into my artistic expression. I’m a dreamer…..
As always, please have fun with this but do remember that there is no obligation to participate.
