Here we are with a couple of nominations from our blog friends Janis and Shelly. Thank you for remembering us! It is always fun for us to answer these tags.
Questions from Janis of Momshie Diaries for the Real Neat Blog Award.
What has been a special moment for you thus far in 2020?
Markus: Waking up at the tiny house with Micah.
Micah: Adopting three stray cats that are enjoying our garden every day, not minding our presence, and hopefully growing in trust.
If you have the power to correct one problem in the world. What will you fix and why?
Micah: The disconnect we all experience. The world would be far healthier and happier when we realize that there is no other.
When and where was the longest vacation you have ever taken?
Markus: Technically a year of uninterrupted backpacking.
Micah: One can argue that life as a digital nomad is one extended vacation.
If you could wake up tomorrow having gained any one quality or ability, what would it be?
Markus: Teleportation would be nice. Distance as only something to enjoy, never something to suffer.
Micah: Invisibility would be charming, to have all the space in the world, to be free.
Do you think you can have happiness without sadness? Why or why not?
Markus: No. The one only has meaning through the other.
Micah: Does it really matter? Happiness, sadness, calm, despair – these are all passing emotions.
What is one piece of advice would you give to a child?
Markus: Don’t look away.
Micah: Nothing. Don’t you think we are all partly fucked in the head because of some adult telling us what to do or how to be?
Would you rather make your own decisions or allow someone to make them for you?
Markus: Outsourcing your decisions is in itself a decision. But even outside of that, I’ll make my own choices thank you very much.
Micah: I would rather make all the wrong decisions in the world and call them my mistakes than have someone else control my life.
Questions from Shelly of Growing With Spawn for the Blogger Recognition Award:
How did this blog start?
It was an activity we picked up during this pandemic. Some people decided to bake or buy a gazillion plants while we chose to create this blog.
Advice for new bloggers?
Just have fun! Mainly, we are each other’s audience. There is no pressure or schedule for us. We want the blog to be as natural as possible – the same spirit with our Instagram account, that of our tiny house, and wellness retreat pages. This blog has been really enjoyable so far and our blog friends have given us joy.
Guest posting news
On Saturday, we are guest posting on Growing With Spawn for the Dating Around the World series – The Philippines. Spoiler alert: We went the opposite direction of how everything is supposed to be. But that is okay. Thank you for the support, everyone!
