Q & A: Get To Know Me

At this point, it has been about a couple weeks into blogging for this website. I have enjoyed it thus far, and have seen the challenges of reaching an audience, that many new bloggers face themselves.

That’s okay though, because like anything worth pursuing it takes time and I largely believe that if I am able to provide good content and keep consistently writing then eventually (hopefully) there will actually be readers interested in what I have to write.

If not, I will have an online portfolio of my writing that I can always look back on and think to myself –

“Remember that one time when I started a blog and wrote 1,000 articles and had no readers, those were the days.” And then I laugh at myself, because this would be very funny. But seriously. But, no really.

Let’s get to the topic at hand with this impromptu post that I am bringing to you today.

Snapchat filter, otherwise ME

I decided that since I am new to this community and the story that I have to tell is going to be released at different points in time, I thought I would set up a Q & A consisting of “Get To Know Me” questions.

Sound like fun? Let’s get started!

What is your name? You can call me HP – those are my initials
How old are you? I’m 32
Are you married? Yes, I’ll refer to him as Mr. FTD or hubs
How old is Mr. FTD or hubs? He’s 32 as well.
How did you both meet? Online, through AIM – does anyone remember AIM?
Do you have kids? No
What is your nationality? Vietnamese, born and raised in USA, 1ST generation US citizen
What is your job? I don’t have a job right now, but that will change soon, hopefully.
What was your job? My background is in Accounting.
What is the hardest thing you have ever done? Study for the CPA exam and get myself (with help from hubs) out of the woods while injured
What are some qualities that you have? I’m loyal, have a sense of humor, and I like to give what I do 100%
What are you not good at doing? I’m not good at sitting through long, boring lectures and I can’t do travel directions well
What is your favorite food? Foods I dream about are pizza, pad thai, and Vietnamese food
Are you a coffee or tea drinker? I drink both, but I prefer coffee (with a little bit of creamer and a dash of sugar)
Why are you retiring early? Multiple reasons, but a big one is that I want to live my one and only life and experience it without being tied down to a job
Introvert or extrovert? I’m an introvert around most people, but if I really like someone they will see that I am really an extrovert with qualities of an introvert. Does that make sense? 🙂
What’s the most surprising thing someone has called you to your face? A peon, I have a story about this in a future post.
Did you slap this person? No, but I should have – joke 🙂
Are you a lover or a fighter? Lover, but I stand up for what is right
What is your writing style? If it were to fall within the four writing styles, mostly narrative. I want to entertain, but also provide insight and knowledge. There will be some expository style in there, but not 100%.
If you could be or do anything what would it be? I would be a backup dancer for the pop or hip-hop genre. I love dancing.
Where have you traveled? San Francisco x 2, Seattle x 2, Chicago, Dallas x 4, NYC x 2, Paris
What’s your favorite song right now? It changes regularly but, “Get Low” by Zedd and Liam Payne

I hope you enjoyed this and learned a little more about who this “HP” character is. To sum me all up, I’m a fun-loving girl that enjoys personal finance, dancing, and eating, among other things.

Now, it’s your turn to ask me a question, and I will try to answer as best I can. Thanks for reading!

    1. Thank you for visiting. Yes, it took me down memory lane. I used ICQ briefly, but I don’t think I liked the interface. Mr. FTD says it was somewhat unique because you could see the other person typing in real time. AIM was AOL messenger. I got a kick out of it when I used it back in my teens. So crazy because I just googled “AIM” and just today they announced that AOL would be shutting the service after 20 years! Now, do I feel old, or what?
