If you wanted to de-clutter where you live, what room / space would you start with? (And why, if you’re feel like admitting to it.)
Hmm, I’m not sure, probably the shelf in the garage or the two sheds outside. It might help me find my tripod for the camera. It’s there somewhere.
If you want to remember something important, how do you do it (sticky note on the fridge, string around your finger, etc.), and does it work?
Sticky notes are not my thing – they’re too small for me to put anything on it – and I’m positive a string around my finger won’t work either. If I need to remember something important, I usually mutter repeatedly under my breath. A few hundred times ought to stick to my brain.
If you could create a one room retreat just for yourself, what would be the most important sense to emphasize: sight (bright natural light, dim light, etc.), hearing (silence, music, fountain, etc.), smell (candles, incense, etc), touch (wood, stone, soft fabrics, etc.), or taste (herbal tea, fresh fruit, etc.)?
If I can create a one room for me, I would emphasize on all five senses. Bright natural light would be great and add a view of natural scenery, that’ll be perfect. For hearing, quiet zen music with water sound would do. For smell – nothing smoky, the smell of fresh air would do. Touch – no carpet, maybe a soft rug beneath me? The rest of the floor must be wood. I would prefer no taste. Now that’s a sanctuary.
If you could interview one of your great-great-great grandparents, who would it be (if you know their name) and what would you ask?
Well, first I have to find out who my great-great-great grandparents are. I barely know my grandparents let alone so many generations back. I’m not sure what to ask. I don’t really know much about Chinese history. Perhaps, I’ll ask something like, “Have you ever seen the emperor?”
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I am grateful for the trip to Bonneville last week. I’m thankful my mom drove and even though we only stayed for a short time, it helped with my anxiety. Living where I live with the airplane noise and constant traffic makes me anxious. My weekend began early this week – fall break (yay) – I have to do an extensive test for my heart and then I’ll be in the mountains for Saturday and Sunday. Of course, I’ll still go to church on Sunday but after that, I’m heading up the mountains.
