More Qs – Mind Over Heart, Dead Plants and Superstitions

I came across another Q&A post and found it to be one by crunchityfrog which pcguyiv rolled into one post (thumbs up, pcguyiv!). Here goes:

In your opinion, is it harder to exercise more or to eat healthier?

Yes, it’s harder to exercise, at least for me. Exercising takes more time/effort although eating healthier can be more costly in most places.

What funny or embarrassing story does your family often tell about you?

I don’t consider them funny or embarrassing, ok maybe kinda funny. They say I used to sleepwalk as a kid but they didn’t realize it until after several instances because they could still have a conversation with me when I was in that state (while rummaging through the pantry or fridge a few flights of stairs from my bedroom lol). They had to add/change locks every now and then because I can still work them in my sleepwalking state.

What holiday did you enjoy as a child but do not celebrate today?

Surprised to realize it’s Lent c/o my aunt who was actively involved in raising me and my siblings. She would always bring us somewhere nice during Holy Week. Now I’m no longer Catholic and even if I still were, it would be an odd, unlikely choice.

Does your heart rule your mind or vice versa?

Vice versa. I always thought my guardian raised me in the military style. I had to work on acknowledging and working on my emotions almost as an adult.

What superstitions do you have regarding the kitchen?

None. Come to think of it, I haven’t heard of any particularly regarding the kitchen.

Does a person have to be either a night owl or a morning person?

No. I think it boils down to what works for the person. I used to be a night owl, then I became a morning person with traces of night owl tendencies lol.

Have you ever carried a one-sided friendship along? When did you stop watering that dead plant?

Yes, for too long. I had an unhealthy messianic complex up until my late 20s. I stopped when I realized it wasn’t worth it. Life’s too short to waste on unhealthy relationships.

  1. I list some of my kitchen superstitions on my original blog post for that question. ^_^ They’re out there. I agree with you that a person doesn’t have to be either a morning person nor a night owl, but it seems a lot of people identify as one or the other. Lent is one I haven’t heard for that question yet. Interesting. 🙂
