Guys, I love a good blog prompt. Because brain is tired. So this:
1. Do you hate happy clappy church music?
Coming from a parish that had that, I still listen to it occasionally when I'm alone (thought not so much the happy flappy 70's stuff as much as the "contemporary" stuff). I don't like it much in the liturgy. We actually go to a parish that has wonderfully preserved the sacred music tradition of the Church. We don't hear it much now that we go to the 7:30am EF low mass now.
2. What is your priority: eating or sleeping?
Ah, the great debate. Sleep eating? I pick food. I love food. I hate eating alone, though I'm often doing it. Sharing a meal around the table with family or good friends is my favorite thing to do. Ever.
3. What type of milk do you drink in your house?
We drink 2% because I feel guilty drinking whole. But now that Iggy will be drinking whole milk soon, Imma get in on that goodness. Yums. We also have vanilla almond milk because I like to soak chia seeds in it. I also am trying to cut out some dairy. That's why I have half and half in my coffee every morning.
4. What is a book that changed your perspective on something?I know this is a book a lot of people read in junior high or high school, and I know it's not a masterpiece, but it has stuck with me since I read it over 15 years ago.
It's a quick read, and I would like to pick it up again soon. If you haven't read it, you should because you can probably get it done in an afternoon. It's a beautiful story about the human desire for freedom and the reality that with that freedom comes not only pain but great joy. I read it at a time in my life where I life where I faced Truth and had to decide how to respond, because I simply could not ignore it.
5. Who is your favorite saint?
In recent years, I've really taken to St. Josemaria Escriva, thanks to a couple of Veronica's and certain Jose that I know. I was fortunate to have visited the house he founded in Rome and venerate his relics a few years back when I was there studying (but not really studying- I'm the worst student). Why is he my favorite? Because his writings point to the areas of heart that need to be exposed to the light.
6. Introvert or extrovert?
Hmm. I would say introvert. My first reaction to group gatherings is always to decline the invitation, without a real reason. I like my alone time, it's how I recharge. I love my friends and family and I love spending time with them, but if I can get a whole day to myself: heaven.
