the 411.

Cruising around blog land and reading some of my favorite blogs I saw this link up on Krysten's blog and thought this would be fun. It starts all the way over at Becky's blog.  Both blogs are amazing and you should check them out!  If you'd like to join me in this link up, which I highly recommend,  check out Becky's page and we can all get to know each other a little better.

1. How long have you been blogging? And what got you started on blogging? Has your blog changed? 
I've been a blogger since August 2011. I started blogging when I knew I was going to be moving from my home of Hawai'i to Nebraska.  I also knew I'd be doing some traveling so as a way to stay connected with my friends at home and share with them what I'm doing up here in the mid west and having a love for writing, I "gave birth" to Kailztales.  All that you read are the tales of my love for positivity,  my life, my adventures, my thoughts, and everything in between. I'm working towards having regular subject blogs that I plan to follow through with as much as my school work allows.  It has changed a few times, but I feel like I'm finally at a place where I know where I'm going with it.
2. Did you go to college? If so where, and what did you study?
I did.  I went to a few...I went to Washington State University in Pullman, Washington, where I was incredibly homesick...then I attended Creighton University here in Nebraska, thinking being with my sister would make me feel less homesick, only to find out the brutal winters made me want to go home to Hawai'i even more.  I finished up my undergrad degree at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa in English and have found myself back in school starting last year doing all my pre-requisites I need to apply for an Occupational Therapy program.  So I'm currently at a community college here.  
 3. Where have you traveled? 
I've been very fortunate, since I first became a passenger on a plane leaving Hawai'i, when I was 18, to have traveled to several different places in the past ten years.  
On the continental United States:
I've been to Washington State, Idaho, Nebraska, Colorado, Minnesota, Southern California, Orlando Florida (specifically Disney World), Chicago, Iowa,  Las Vegas (with my amazing boyfriend, it's really become one of my favorite places to visit), New Orleans, Kansas CityMissouri.
Outside of the Continental United states:
Hawai'i Island: Kona & Hilo, Maui, Kaua'i, Paranaque, Las Pinas, and Manila Phillipines, Bangkok Thailand
4. If you won the lottery, what would be the first thing you would buy? 
If I won the lottery I would probably buy my mom her own apartment and build my grandpa and Uncle a new house on his property. Then I would pay off my student loans, buy a house, donate some to charity, and save some.  
5. What are your 3 biggest pet peeves? 
Not in any particular order... when lights, TVs, fans, etc are left on when no one is using them, being interrupted when I'm trying to say something, and when people aren't genuine. 
6. What is your favorite movie? 
hands down... The Sandlot, the original.  I can laugh over and over again!  
"You're killing me Smalls!" 
is my absolute favorite line in a movie....ever! 
7. What is your drink of choice; wine, beer, or liquor. Or Water, Soda, Tea?
Occasionally I will drink some wine and a mixed drink, and sometimes soda, but I have to say Water is truly my favorite drink of choice.   It's good for you, it's refreshing, and it always quenches my thirst.  
 8. What is something you enjoy to do when you have me time? 
I enjoy writing, watching movies, reading and doing crafts. 
9. If you could have a $10,000 shopping spree to one store, which store would it be? 
H&M, for the win! 
10. Share with us an embarrassing moment of your past? Or present. 
Probably the first time I went over to my boyfriend's family's house, I tripped on the step and fell down.  Forget about impressing my guy, I just showed my full clumsy colors, and he held his laugh too.  A sweetie.  
11. What day would you love to relive again? 
There are really so many and I could list them I'll just list a few.
Each time I would see my niece after awhile and she would hug me.
When I met my boyfriend...I still think about that day sometimes.
When I did the Walt Disney World Marathon with my sister, it was such hard work and took so much mentally...that I'm happy I did that.  And Disney is always the way to go when you want to have fun!
12. If your life was turned into a movie... what actor would play you? 
I think Zooey Deschanel would do a pretty good job... or Kate Beckinsale
13. What are the jobs you had in high school/college/the early years? 
Oh my gosh...I've had so many!!
Here we go:
Price Busters-cashier
Student help at all the colleges I've attended
American Eagle
Kahala Nui- a retirement community 
Cinnamon Girl 
Hair & Makeup by Bev
Soul Restaurant
Milan Laser Aesthetics
Children's Hospital & Medical Center
14. Show us a picture from high school or  college. 
This is the youngest picture I've found at one of my best friend's graduation.

15. If you could travel anywhere in the world, all expenses paid, where would you go?
I'd definitely go here with my boyfriend! For 3 weeks to Tahiti, one week in Bora Bora and two weeks on the Aranui3 sailing to different islands and to the Marquesas!

 16. Show us the most current picture of you or you, or your family, or anything of meaning to you. 
I love this picture my boyfriend took of me with my family

I really love this picture of my boyfriend and shows how much of an adventurous couple we are and that we don't mind getting muddy and doing obstacles just for fun! 
 17. Where do you see your life 5 years from now?
Five years from now I see myself as a graduate of an OT program, working in my profession, living closer to home, married, and with a dog. We shall see!! It's so exciting to see how these next few years will unfold, there's also a lot of work.  Staying focused during this time is crucial.

I hope you enjoyed this and I hope to learn more about you!

Take care & Smile!
