My mind needs a break. I have SO many thoughts in there, but they’re all swirling around. I need them to get into formation before I can coherently string them together. So, tonight, 50 random questions I borrowed from a few people I follow, who I have no idea how to tag.
1. Were you named after anyone?
My mom swears she made my name up, but I refuse to believe she did. She must have heard it somewhere It’s unique, but it isn’t a Myka’s mom original. I do credit her for the unique spelling, though. Myka. It’s very feminine for such a masculine name. I disliked it growing up because it was different, and never pronounced correctly. But the older I get, the more I like it – and other people do, too. Guess my mom knew what she was doing (once again).
2. When was the last time you cried?
Oh, bother. This morning at my desk at work. Someone from another department talked down to me, to protect his team member, and I shed a few alligator tears. I was already upset that I woke up early only to find out it was dumping snow outside & I couldn’t make it to get a chocolate donut, and was therefore at work 35 minutes early.
3. Do you like your handwriting?
For the most part, yes. I have that mix of cursive & print that not many people can read. But I think it looks lovely. I mean, I must. I have over 6 journals full of it.
4. What is your favorite lunch meat?
Favorite? Probably salami. With cream cheese. Mmm. Or, classic oven roasted Turkey.
5. Do you have kids?
I do not.
6. If you were another person would you be friends with you?
Yeah, I would. I’m kind of a lot to handle, & I have serious social anxiety – but I treat my friends with the utmost respect, sincerity, and I am incredibly thoughtful. Be my friend.
7. Do you use sarcasm a lot?
8. Do you still have your tonsils?
9. Would you bungee jump?
I highly doubt it. I can barely eat a breadstick from a buffet. I don’t think I would trust a bungee cord.
10. What is your favorite cereal?
Cinnamon life. But you have to eat it super fast or it gets really soggy. oh, and add sliced strawberries.
11. Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?
Yes, I have OCD.
12. Do you think you are strong?
Yeah, I do. I go to the gym 3-5 days a week and lift weights, so I’ve got some muscles. I don’t think I’m stronger than most people, but I think I’m strong for the body type that I have.
13. What is your favorite ice cream?
Mmm. Favorite? Probably classic chocolate. But I also really like Cookies n Cream. Add magic shell. I might have some this evening, actually. (is 9:36PM still evening?)
14. What is the first thing you notice about people?
Probably if I think they’re attractive, or not. Call me shallow. It’s the first thing that pops into my head when I see someone. “Oh, he’s cute. Who is that?” “Damn, she’s pretty. Think she’s nice?”
15. Red or pink?
Pink! Blush colored. Hot pink, blech!
16. What is the least favorite thing about yourself?
My paranoia. Good lord. I drive my own self up the wall. I fixate. I overthink. I’m paranoid.
17. Who do you miss the most?
Damn. I feel like this is similar to that question “If you were drunk in a room full of everyone you’ve ever loved, who would you run to first?” Who do I miss the most? Today? Right Now? Overall? I miss my Grandpa a TON. Our family fell apart after he passed away. But I also miss my mom, daily. I miss her ice cream cones & the positive attitude she always has about my life. I miss people from back East I haven’t seen in months. I miss the boy I saw yesterday who makes me giddy. I miss my best friend David. & I miss Tata (shoutout).

Tan. Because I love caramel. Super light colored coffee. Getting sun in the summer. Sand. & Donuts. (they’re kinda tan, no?)
