Just a little q & a passed onto me from Jane. I'll keep the tag going following my responses.

01//if you could listen to any conversation between two famous people- alive or dead {or combination of either}- who would they be and why? my grandfather and my grandmother on my mother's side. because i want to know what his last words were to her before he never came back from the war. (i suppose i didn't read the question correctly the first time, but i don't really know which two famous people have conversations that i care about hearing.)

02//where were you born? Hollywood, CA, Queen of Angels Hospital

03//what does your name mean and is there a story behind it? {i.e. how you were named, why you were given your name} as far as i know, my name is pretty ordinary and not special. i don't know if my parents just wanted both their daughters' names to start with the letter ''j".

04//what was the most recent compliment you received? a younger guy at the farmers market said i look younger than i said i was.

05//have you ever won an award? yes. a few military awards and a poetry award and scholarship.

06//what is typically in your bag? my phone, a few chapsticks/lipglosses, pens, wallet with cash, military id, drivers license, debit card, credit card, costco membership card, golden spoon rewards card, pinkberry rewards card, keys, journal, olympus camera

07//what was the strangest thing you believed as a child? that if i stuck my hand(s) or arm(s) out of the car window, they would get cut/taken off (my mom told me that!)

08//what is a favorite local place you would recommend to your friends should they ever visit your town/city for the first time? i have so many favorite places in san diego...i'd say Barleymash

09//what does your life so far say about you? this is definitely open to interpretation by others- but as far as i would say: i love adventure; i crave variety; i eat a lot; i celebrate life; i like people but i also need alone time; i'm easy going; i'm self-conscious about certain things; i worry easily; i've made a lot of mistakes, but turned out okay; i can appear scatterbrained & i do forget a lot, however i'm highly organized and am capable of achieving goals.

10//what is really great advice you've received? {could be anything - beauty, life, surviving school, etc.}follow your heart, but use your brain.

11//what was your first job ever? being my grandmother's (my mom's mother) in-house aid

i tag the following bloggers, if this is something you would like to do: Steph, Charlotte, Sophie, Lori, Chels, Harley & Jane, Kizzy, Rachael, Fenn, Carla. here are my questions:

01//if you could live any place in the world, where would it be?

  1. Really enjoyed reading this post!

    I was apparently named after Hayley Mills :) and the strangest thing I thought as a kid was that ginger hair was the spice so I always presumed I'd snip my hair off into food when cooking. It took me a long time to realise this wasn't true...

    Hailes Hearts Fashion.
