What is your favorite thing about blogging?
Blogging is the best and easiest way for me to express myself and be creative. I grew up singing, dancing, and performing in general so I really need some kind of creative outlet. To be able to write about whatever I want, whenever I want, and not have to answer to anybody about my thoughts and opinions is really wonderful.
What do you find the most challenging about blogging/being a blogger?
Finding time is definitely the most difficult thing. I work 45 hours a week pretty regularly, and I’m lucky my job is very creative as well. Sometimes the last thing I want to do when I get home is open up another computer and stare at another screen. I try to write consistently, but working full time and freelancing make it difficult.
If you had to eat only one food for an entire year, what would it be?
This is hard! I love all kinds of food and my cravings constantly change. I guess I would say chicken and rice. My grandmother makes an amazing chicken adobo that I haven’t been able to have regularly since I moved to NYC. I could live off of that plus rice and soy sauce forever. Although I’m not sure my figure would hold up!
If you could have any super power, what would it be?
I normally say time travel, but lately I’m feeling the whole “no regrets everything happens for a reason” kind of thing and I don’t think I can be trusted to not change history if given the chance! I would love to be able to teleport, and teleport with anyone and anything. This way my fiance and I could travel the world but still have the ability to sleep in our own bed each night! And save on air fare, of course.
