Questions from Matthew G


What was the reason to start blogging?

I started blogging as a class project on ambition. It changed my life.

Where would you like to be in 3 years time from now on?

Writing movies, books, and with my family in a home full of love and gratitude.

The most shameful thing you ever did?

I accidentally snitched on my best friend at the time, over something so stupid. Haven’t done it before then and haven’t done it since.

List 3 things you would pick up for the desert island!

Well, unlimited food, water, and books. But if it can’t be unlimited the journaling bible, a pen, and a bottle of water

If given a choice, would you rather change humanity or yourself?

Myself because changing humanity is a lost cause. There’s more hope if I work on changing myself.

Types/traits of character you admire and hate most?

I admire characters with brash inappropriate honesty cleaned up with a little charm. And as for traits I dislike most, I’d say flat characters. I don’t hate or love them, they just slip into non existence.

When finding the perfect crush with obstacles, give up or fight and reason why?

Fight, but I do have pride in myself and I’m well aware there’s like a billion fishies in the sea. However, I’m married so I don’t really fight anymore. But if the occasion was to arise that I had to fight for my husband, I’d fight. Don’t confuse this with the idea that I don’t work on making my husband fall in love with me over and over. I put in work.

How would you use Death Note if given one?

I wouldn’t. I don’t wish death on anyone at this point in my life. And have you seen the one on Netflix?! No thanks. lol

Are you rather predator or prey?

I like to switch between the two.

Give me 2/3 thoughts about me based on my blog!

Matthew, You seem to be a creative and deep thinker.

Also, write down your addiction and explanation why you won’t stop it!

Eating sweets and I won’t stop because I can see myself on my death bed wishing I ate that cookie when I had the chance. Yes, this is really how my head works.


I nominate the blogs that have inspired my most since I’ve started Jayne.Press:

Notes From A Summer Of Discontent


Eyes Straight Ahead


Feral Rumination


Revolution From My Bed


Behcets And Borderline


Here’s your questions:

What two dead writers/poets would you have tea with?

Favorite thing to write with (type of pen, pencil, etc)

Top three movies you could watch on rotation for days

Craziest idea you gotten in the shower

One sentence that sums up your 2017

Just one annoyingly bad habit

Worst injury ever


Congratulations! Can’t wait to see your answers. It’s totally for fun so if you decide to opt out it won’t hurt my feelings. 😀 Here’s a link to the Official Rules and descriptions and more information.  We’re going to keep this going for the New Year. 🙂 so ignore the dates. It’s all in good fun.

Jayne is a writer. On her free time she likes to be with her family hiking outdoors and traveling. New England is her home and place of birth. When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.

  1. Congratulations! It was great to see your answers and get to know you better through them. I like the “unlimited” qualification for the island! I agree with your thought on changing yourself versus humanity.

    Thank you for the nomination! I really enjoy your blog and am honored to be included in this list! Going to read the others and find some new reading for this year!

    As for your questions, I will share a post with the answers so folks from my blog can see a link to yours.

    Happy New Year and congratulations again!!
