Good morning, darlings!
A quick follow up on yesterday’s run. It was somewhat tough because my legs were sore from my Sunday’s workout. However, I did manage to run 6.5 km in 37 minutes, which is okay. I SHALL NOT GIVE UP!
Needless to say, my foam roller became my best friend yet again *read here for more foam rolling tips*! Today, thankfully is my rest day, so I will probably do some stretches, nothing major though.
As you most likely remember, I was nominated for the Liebster Award about a month ago. However, when I was nominated again last weekend by She Does Write, I was truly honored and couldn’t decline it. Not to repeat myself, I decided just to answer the questions. I find, it is a great way to provide give you with another glimpse into my life. *For some strange reason, I noticed that I don’t tend to talk about my private life in here that much.*
So there it goes.
1. What is your favorite word or phrase?
The first phrase that came to my mind is…
2. Dogs, cats, or other–and why?
I am definitely a dog person. It might sound somewhat funny *and RIDICULOUS*, but I am actually scared of cats. Not that I want to run the moment I see one, but I am really afraid that it will scratch me. I think I’ll blame my grandma’s cat who is super cute and WILD at the same time! On the other hand, I’d love to own a tiger! *How confusing!*
As for the dogs, I am a German Shepherd lover. Meet my beloved Sanda who passed away last year.
And here is my little 4.5 months old pest and trouble-maker, Bella:
3. What was the best part of living where you grew up?
I was born in Kyiv, Ukraine.
When I was little (about 2-3 years old) my parents decided to move to my dad’s home city Cherkasy, where I ended up living for about 13 years of my life. My fondest memories of my childhood are the moments I spent with my family at the beach close to our house, where we would go quite often: in summer – to swim, play soccer and volleyball, and even camp, in winter – to skate and ski.
4. What’s the best part of living where you are now?
Montreal is one of the most beautiful cities in the entire world! I might be biased, but my heart belongs here.
The nature is breathtaking.
There are plenty of events happening all year long.
And the architecture is beautiful, and yet not overwhelming: a mix of old and new.
5. What was your last dream about?
To be honest, I don’t really recall, but it was something in James Bond style, meaning me running away from someone to stay alive. All jokes aside, that’s how I felt. Haha!
6. Have you ever pranked someone in an epic way?
Okay, so I don’t really remember pranking anybody recently, HOWEVER… I was pranked pretty badly about a year ago by a local show Les Détestables. It is a Montreal’s hidden camera comedy program, where elderly people say or do inappropriate things trying to get a reaction out of innocent people *me!* who do not suspect a thing!
Since the video is in French (Montreal is a bilingual city), here is the translation:
Elderly lady, ‘Excuse me, but I haven’t finished reading… Can you turn the page back?’
Me *clearly shocked*, ‘Excuse me?!?!’
Elderly lady *turning the page of my book*, ‘I stopped reading right here.’
You won’t believe, this encounter lasted for much longer, but they didn’t show it all on TV. What you need to know about me is that I am NOT a rude person. That being said, this situation gave me a pretty intense headache from conflicting emotions and feelings that I had experienced for the rest of the day! Haha!
7. If you could ask your future self anything, what would it be?
How was child labor?! Ahaha! *I am terrified!!! Not that I’m pregnant either! LOL!*
8. How would you describe your personal style?
I am not sure I understand this question properly, but I am very determined and competitive. Definitely, a good friend and a family person.
9. Have you ever met a celebrity?
Multiple times! My problem though is that I don’t know who they are!
10. What is your favorite thing to do in downtime?
I love to read, take pictures and edit them!
11. What is the last thing you photographed?
I actually took this picture of myself.
Not that I’m one of those girls that loves to constantly take selfies, but I thought the idea behind it was really nice. #nomakeupselfie was done in order to show support and raise breast cancer awareness.
So tell me, do you like these posts where I give you some random facts about myself? What would you like to know about me?
