What is your preferred mode of transportation?
My preferred mode of transportation is actually flying, if traveling long distance otherwise I enjoy road trips and sightseeing. A chauffeur service around the city would be quite exciting.
Why did you start blogging?
I started journaling, writing, card making to my family and friends, when I was eight years old. My actual blogging started as a result of a response to a question on Twitter. I was touched about a story about a couch. The woman was so kind, she liked my comment and encouraged me to go WordPress. I setup initially and used it for my own personal journal until one day I accidentally pressed publish. Lol 😆
Do your friends and family support you in blogging ( or any other passion of your’s)?

What would be your dream job?
The ideal Dream Job for me would be to actually
Who is your favorite actor, or author ( if you don’t watch movies)?
Now, this question I found really hard since, I don’t watch television often. I would have to say Taraji P. Henson. The top movies “Karate Kid, Hidden Figures, Proud Mary, Acrimony, Ice Age (Ethel), and No Good Deed.

After waking up I shout Good Morning to the Lord! I set my day with prayer, reading and meditation.
Are you a morning person?
Yes, I am a morning person. I enjoying singing and making up random songs.
What are your ambitions for the coming year?
This coming year, there is much in store. I hope complete various writing projects. I will be Advocating in Richmond, Virginia in January.
How do you think the world is going to cope with environmental challenges?
Environmental challenges are happening in the world everyday from one extreme to another. When we look at Global Warming in our climate and the unusual weather catastrophes that have happened which claimed lives, separating families. It called people to put their differences aside and unify for a common cause of Help.
It is heart wrenching to read, watch and see the fire in Thousand Oaks, then to know that he land and the environment and it’s inhabitants are going up in smoke. People have lost homes, crops, clothing, their lifesavings of investment. Insurance is in place to offset it, if you were fortunate to have it. What happens when FEMA goes bankrupt, the Home and Rental insurance go belly up. Food 🥘 and water 💦 become a scarce.
The evacuations themselves then cause overpopulation to happen suddenly. Our highways, roads, schools, stores, are over crowded because the infrastructures were not apart or in place to host the sudden increase in people. This makes unemployment numbers jump. The cost of living sky rockets, making it less affordable for those who lower income to rent or buy which increases homelessness.
What would be your ideal holiday vacation?
The ideal holiday vacation would definitely be to get out of this chilly cold weather and my first cruise ever to a beautiful Tropical 🌴 Paradise Island Resort with my girls. Whether it is the Caribbean, Bahamas, we would have a fabulous time during our seven day adventure.
How many of Harry Potter movies you have watched and which one is your favorite ( or books, if you haven’t seen any of the movies) ?
I’m not the biggest Harry Potter Movie fan, so I’ve only seen one movie;drum role please “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone”
