Hiya mates, here's some tantalising tit bits about me!
Anna B Bomb
24, I hit the quarter century milestone in November
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN BLOGGING FOR?
I started blogging before it was called blogging when I was 13. I can't even remember the name of the site now, but it helped me sort through some pretty tough pre teen, and teen issues. I've had a break for quite a number of years since then, and just started back up in August of this year after a couple of stalled starts.
WHAT IS THE BIGGEST MISCONCEPTION THE MEDIA GIVES OF WOMEN?
That we're obsessed with our appearance and we're huge consumers. I know this may be true for many women, but most of the women I know are much more complex creatures than the shallow portrayals of us in the media.
WHAT INSPIRES YOU THE MOST?
Being outdoors and getting fresh air in my lungs. Nothing gets the brain ticking over better than a good shot of oxygen. Top it off with some amazing scenery like white sand beaches, a gorgeous sunset, waterfalls or mountain views and I'm well inspired.
WHAT DO YOU ENJOY DOING IN YOUR SPARE TIME?
Depends on my mood!
Sometimes I love to just veg on the couch and take in some trashy movies or catch up with a novel and listen to some good tunes.
Other times nothing beats a cold beer at the local pub and playing pool with my boy, but then again I love to dress up, put on a bit of makeup and hit the town for cocktails and dancing with my favourite girls too.
I love AFL football, so weekends during footy season are usually spent watching my team play and then going out for a meal or drink afterwards.
Plus I try to spend one day on the weekend cooking up meals for the week ahead. So cooking and baking are big pass times for me.
Mostly though, I like to get outdoors and do something active like go for a run, take a mates dog for a walk, go fishing, snowboard, ride my bike around the neighbourhood, hike a bush trail, swim at the beach and the list goes on.
Finally, I love camping and like it rough ;) Combine camping, outdoors, friends and some live music for a weekend festival and I'm in heaven.
WHAT MADE YOU DECIDE TO CONTRIBUTE TO THIS BLOG?
I was asked, I had a look, I jumped right in without hesitation. Seriously, I can't pass up an opportunity to flex my writing muscles a little more, and be part of a diverse project. I didn't really think twice, I just did it.
DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE DISH?
I know I'm not alone here, but anything with peanut butter or bananas or chocolate - or a combination of all of the above for maximum awesomeness.
YOUR FAVORITE PLACE TO SPEND TIME
Anywhere outdoors, or if I'm forced inside - the kitchen!
WHAT MAKES YOU PROUD TO BE A WOMAN?
Mateship, and the sense of "sisterhood" I feel amongst all women.
It makes me proud to think that if ever I, or one of my girlfriends, has a problem there's always somewhere to turn. The support, friendship and care I have received from female friends and strangers alike when in times of need has been immense. I know that there's always someone to talk to, someone who's been there before and has some advice, someone with compassion, or someone with a joke to ease the burden.
BEST PIECE OF ADVICE YOU EVER RECEIVED WAS...
From my Mum, the cliched "everything happens for a reason". I am constantly surprised by life and the road I'm on, but I know that bumps and failures are a normal part of life. If something doesn't go my way, I know it wasn't meant to be, and instead of dwelling I try to take the learning and move on to the next thing.
