Four Questions

san francisco | almost getting it together

I don’t usually do surveys but Ang tagged me to answer sets of four questions so I feel basically obliged to do it because she’s my bae. Also I’m going to SoulCycle late Monday so I know I’m not going to come home and write a post for Tuesday. I have some real exciting posts coming your way though, so get excited.

Four names that people call me, other than my real name.
1. Chip (My dad’s nickname for me)
2. Bug (My grandfather’s nickname for me)
3. Cassie (I guess that isn’t technically my real name?)
4. Sassafrass (old lingering term of endearment)

Four jobs I have had:
1. Working “top of house” at Theatre West Virginia, aka running the concessions register/hanging out with my friends and flirting with boys
2. Sales associate at AEO (hah)
3. Social Media Coordinator (ha)
4. Professional actor (no really, I used to do professional theatre when I was in junior high/high school… see above)

Four movies I’ve watched more than once:
1. Lost in Translation
2. The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou
3. The Royal Tenenbaums
4. Marie Antoinette

Four books I’d recommend:
1. Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple
2. One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories by BJ Novak
3. The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
4. Less Than Zero by Bret Easton Ellis

Four places I’ve lived:
1. San Francisco, CA
2. Pittsburgh, PA
3. Morgantown, WV
4. Hong Kong, China (wildcard)

Four places I’ve been:
1. Siem Reap, Cambodia
2. Buenos Aires, Argentina
3. Rome, Italy
4. Hawaii, USA (four different continents, boom.)

Hawaii vibes.

4 places I’d rather be right now:
The real answer is nowhere, I love San Francisco so freaking much. BUT if I have to be somewhere else:
1. Pittsburgh (GAME CHANGER, I KNOW.)
2.  Hawaii because, duh.
3. Morocco
4. Iceland

Four things I don’t eat:
1. Anything that isn’t real… i.e. all processed foods
2. Refined sugar, for the most part.
3. Shrimp, because I’ll die.
4. Pasta/gluten/bread (except I am planning a trip to Tartine, whoops)

Four of my favorite foods:
1. Greek Yogurt
2. Avocados
3. Nut butter
4. Ice cream

I have got to stop with this.

4 TV shows that I watched:
1. 30 Rock
2. Parks and Recreation
3. No Reservations (and it’s cousins The Layover and Parts Unknown… loveeee Anthony Bourdain)
4. The OC

4 things I’m looking forward to next year:
1. Angela visiting
2. Having another visitor in February :) (!!!)
3. Hopefully going to Morocco (HEY JESSI)
4. Finally going surfing on a regular basis once I buy a wetsuit haha

nutty for life | almost getting it together


Four things I’m always saying:
1. “Okay, perfect”
2.  “Like, WTF” (except I actually say what it stands for)
3. “OMG really?”
4.  “I’m running late” <- HA, there’s my New Year’s Resolution

Chat with me:
Did any of my answers surprise you? Answer one (or a bunch) of these questions so I can learn more about you!

I think that you win at this survey. Definitely some of the most varied experiences! And yes, please don’t eat shrimp and die, I would be ever so sad! The Goldfinch was an incredible book, even if I was a bit over some of the characters (it sounds silly, but I was just ready for them to fish or cut bait after a while!) but the wordsmithing of tat book was absolutely un real. UNREAL

This was a fun survey. I did it a little while back. You have some really interesting answers. One of my New Year’s resolutions is not to be late too.. :-)

I went right after Asia so I was a little biased… it wasn’t the safest city (BA) but the food was amazing. I’d like to go back and do wine country and more of Patagonia.

Please discontinue all future use of “throwie” for throwback. Ew. Rome is my #1 worldwide place I want to visit.

Rome is pretty. freaking amazing. Kind of reminds me of LA with ruins but not sucky like LA.

So jealous of all your travels! I have only traveled within the US- except Canada because I practically live on the border. I would love to go to Europe and explore!

You’ve been all over the map! I love it. I say “okay, perfect” all the time too!

Four places I’ve been: Australia, Croatia, Ukraine, and France. Argentina is one of the next places on my list!

The Goldfinch is the next book I plan to read – I’ve heard so many good things!

I say “oh my god” more than I care to admit, and Noah always thinks somethings wrong. TV shows I’ve watched: LOST, The Wire, West Wing, Breaking Bad, Scandal, Orange is the New Black.

I keep forgetting that I’ve been meaning to read The Goldfinch… does that make sense? I need to add that on my list of books to read in 2015. And I had no idea you lived in Hong Kong. I’d love to explore Asia, but I have no idea how I’d survive with my allergies. I’d probably have to stick to eating nothing but fruits and rice :lol:

I did this survey about a week ago, and it was a lot of fun! I’m definitely with you on Hawai’i. I’ve been trying to see if I can finagle one of my rotations there for school, but it’s looking like it probably won’t happen (if I’m being realistic and all that goodness; sigh!).

What is that beautiful concoction with the sprinkles!? <3

You are the cutest! I just want to put you in my pocket & carry you around with me all day. Or maybe hire you to follow me around & point at people/exclaim “Like, WTF!” to really drive my point home.

We should go to Maui together. I made a blogger friend who is moving there & she invited me to stay with her.
