Once Upon a Survey...

Spring has sprung and the break has been glorious! 
Today is my last day of spring break (not counting the weekend) and it has been oh so nice. 
I've been entertaining myself with Netflix, cleaning, cooking and laundry (I know the last 3 don't sound particularly amazing, but I've not had time to do them in the last weeks so I rather appreciate them now). 
I'm definitely not yearning to get back to the books, but I will have a little more energy to do so I suspect.

Before the survey, I have a couple show recommendations for you all!
1.) The BBC's Sherlock. It stars Benedict Cumberbatch (what a name!) and Martin Freeman (the new Bilbo) and it is a modern take on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's beloved tales. Give it a watch!
2.) Once Upon A Time. It comes on ABC and is a take on Grimm's fairytales, with a twist of course. I am quite in love with all things whimsical, so this is a major favorite :)

On with the sure to find references to the above shows in it :)

1.  If there was a fairytale my life would fit into, it would be Little Red Riding Hood. Why? Because Little Red is one of the only ones who does NOT make a deal to find success. I mean, she gets eaten by a wolf, but thanks to the huntsman she comes back. After all, we've all been tricked by a wolf or two in life but then learned from it :)  

2. If I had to say only one phrase for the rest of my life it would be G-D is good. Because no matter what is going on, no matter how crazy things get...He never changes. He is always good. That's the one thing that never changes. 

3. Sherlock Holmes or John Watson? That's a toughy. We all love Holmes, however I like Watson because he's more of a relateable person. He falls in love and he feels and he messes up. Holmes, by his definition, is a high functioning sociopath...not very inviting, haha.

4. If I had 3 wishes, they would be 1. I'd wish for my school loans to be paid off. 2. For Toby's and my mom to not have to work and be financially taken care of. 3. a nice house!  

5. Between the woods and Baker Street, I would choose Baker Street. I can always take a camping trip :) 

6. Speaking of woods, if I were lost in the woods, the 3 things I'd carry with me would be matches (to make a torch and make a fire), a bow and arrow (because it's quick and quiet; this is of course in a fictional land where I can actually USE a bow and arrow), and a notebook and pen (creative ideas often come from strife).

7. In an enchanted wood (sorry guys, I'm super obsessed with fairy tales) I come across a looking glass, a spinning wheel, and 5 beans. Unaware of the meaning of these items, I choose the 5 beans because the image in the glass may lie, the spinning wheel may break, but the beans will yield food and are easy to carry.

"And they lived happily ever after."



  1. LOL I loved it ! Very Very cute!

  2. super nice survey and the pic at the beginning looks super yummy!!!!

    1. Oh thank you...and OH it was! It was a drink called a joyride...and that's just what it was haha.

  3. Me and my fellahave recently got into the Sherlock series and are seriously hooked! Cumberbatch makes a great Sherlock.
