Phiphi's 11 questions:

1. what is your biggest fear? Hm. snakes. and besides that, getting old and passing away.
2. in terms of your job/studies, did you end up doing what you thought you would when you were younger? yes and no. i majored in english language literature - so i can write and edit things. i originally wanted to be a teacher but got too used to the biweekly paychecks of a full time job.
3. if you could buy one thing without worrying about the price tag, what would it be? oh man. a blazer. or a birkin. ;)
4. what is your idea of a relaxing day? sleeping in, snuggling with my cat, reading in the sun, and then dinner with my FH at one of our favorite restaurants.

6. what is your biggest pet peeve? people who are late.
7. if you could have an alternate career, what would it be? photo journalism!
8. what is your favourite season and why? i love fall. any excuse to wear skirts and blouses during the day but snuggle in warm sweaters in the evening is fine by me!
9. what is your greatest accomplishment? most likely graduating from college. i'm the only one in my immediate family to do so.
10. where do you see yourself in 5 years? to be honest, a mom. hopefully being able to work from home
11. if you could change one thing from your youth, what would it be? to tell myself not to worry too much now. i sometimes feel like i grew up too fast and missed out on being a kid.
