A written snapshot of myself (1websurfer) via Q&A

I thought I'd try something different this time. Instead of reporting on interesting websites, I'm going to answer various questions derived from the internet. I'll be adding to the list when I want to respond to thought-provoking questions.

Do you know your ancestry? What nationalities are you? My blood line is fused with French and Irish. Evidently, my grandmother’s lineage includes royalty and political officials!

If you could give the world one piece of advice, what would it be? If you are against something, do not tolerate it. I endured physical abuse because I tolerated it. Not anymore.

What is the scariest experience you've ever had? My ex husband was cleaning his rifle when it went off. It missed my three year old daughter a few inches, who happened to walk by. The bullet penetrated the glass, the balcony, a bird and lodged in a nearby tree.

What is the most beautiful image, place, thing you have ever seen? Why? If I wait to answer this question, I’ll never post it. See my flickr page to get a fast answer [].

If you could confront anyone from your past, who would it be and why? I would confront myself. The guilt from wrong decisions still plague me. In order to get closure, I’d encourage myself that whether wise or unwise, if I’ve learned from them, nothing was in vain. No one has a perfect track record when it comes to decision making.
What’s something you know you do differently than most people? When I open my snail mail, I put it in a 3-hole binder with monthly tabs. I save on envelope clutter, and I can find bills and such things much faster.

More to come...

  1. Hi Monique,

    That is very interesting. I, too, was an abused wife many, many years ago and am so thankful to be safe and alone again.
