older, wiser, funnier, happier, more loving, etc etc

#23 - give pictures of 5 guys who are famous who you find attractive

little white lies - a french film really caught my heart a few years ago, and its one of my favourites, but i have so many! i wrote about it here

#25 - someone who fascinates you and why
i just adore maggie beer. she is such an inspiration to me, she discovered what she wanted to do later in life after experiencing a few different careers, and ultimately it was food that captivated her heart. i just love her approach to growing fresh produce, and cooking simple wholesome meals.

#26 - what kind of person attracts you
confident, happy, funny, rugged, driven, loving, caring, mysterious, who has the same sort of values, committed, someone who is willing to fight for what they want, someone who will challenge me... the list goes on

#27 - a problem that you've had
where to start?! ha ha

#28 - something that you miss
my grandparents on my mothers side

#29 - goals for the next 30 days
getting into a healthy routine and sticking to it. eating better, exercising more.

#17 to #21

#17 - your highs and lows of this past year
highs = spending time with my nephew and family, going to bali with the girls for my girlfriends wedding, meeting that same girlfriends twin boys (swoon), pulling off another successful year of 'a real affair'

lows = the passing of my grandmother

#18 - your beliefs

honesty, happiness, treat people how you expect to be treated, laughter, karma, respect, love, be genuine, be good, always be yourself.

#19 - disrespecting your parents
gosh. this is not ok. in saying that - teenage years did not always see me in the best light. there was defiance, and angst. but i was saying to my mum the other day, that i see both her and my dad as friends now, people i want to spend time with, go to the movies with, cook dinner for, and overall i enjoy their company, we're friends now, i have the utmost respect for the pair of them. it couldn't have been easy dealing with teenage me, total respect to them!

#20 - how important do you think education is
important. what ever happened to times tables, spelling bees and the difference between nouns, verbs, pro-nouns etc?
i believe strongly in educating yourself in something you love doing, not something you think others believe you should study.

#21 - one of your favourite shows
i have so many... but one of my all time favourites would have to be
"love my way"

depends what day it is, beautiful nomad, they all hate us, veronica loves archie, a momentary happiness

#16 - your views on mainstream music

it serves its purpose. i'm a triple j listener, but every now and then i like to switch over and listen to the others stations - its fun, the songs a catchy. what i don't like about mainstream music is the sexualisation and how it promotes the use of bad english.
