Weekly Wondering // Week 27

Hola amigos :)
For the explanation of what is going on here, please do click here and have a quick read.
Other than that, in short, I am answering 7 of these 365 thought provoking questions each week until I complete the year. I already did this in 2013 and am revisiting them to compare my answers.

What do you see when you look into the future?
I'm not a phychic so nothing ;) What will be, will be.

What makes you angry? Why?
Oh my goodness...SO much lol!!! Why not check out my 'What I HATE About...' blog series? Click here! The top of the list things are littering, rudeness, animal abuse/neglect/murder of any sort and denial of climate change.

What is the most valuable life lesson you learned from your parents?
I'm not sure about the most value, but the most used is to not spend money you don't have. As in, no credit cards, store cards, loans or anything on finance. If I want something I save for it and pay for it in full...I don't like this whole getting whatever you want without working for it cultre. The only debt I will ever be in (hopefully) is a mortgage eventually.

What does love feel like?
Another love question eh?! Man. I don't know...surely it's not the easiest thing to put into words.

What are your favorite simple pleasures?
Sitting somewhere outdoors where there are no people but lots of birds. Just sitting there and enjoying their company.
Morning naps on the sofa when Baker hugs in, between my first and second jobs.
Being productive. As in crossing things off my to-do list and being able to sit down to work on the blog knowing theres no other housework etc to do haha.

If you could go back in time and tell a younger version of yourself one thing, what would you tell?
I actually don't think I would tell myself anything. I went through a heck of a lot and it all shaped me as a person so I'd prefer not to risk causing a domino effect and changing the course I've taken.

What do you do to deliberately impress others?
Oooh that's a good one! That I know of, nothing, I don't think..? But subconsciously maybe something...especially considering I can be rather anxious and paranoid while out in public. 

Make sure to look back on this same post from 2013/14 here, and see the differences in my answers! (I completed writing this before checking back to my old answers by the way). You can also see the series in whole from last time here and of course last week's Weekly Wondering here.


  1. I agree with you on not spending money you don't have, excluding big things like a house or a car. I was amazed by what I saw in TV shows, like people spending £5,000 on a 1 week holiday in US, on credit card. Why?! It's much safer to spend as much as you have.
    Although I do have card at Argos, it was vital when we moved from a furnished place to an unfurnished house. Buying everything (including white goods) was so costly and it helped to be able to pay for some of the things after 6 months or 1 year.

    1. Exactly!! You are a smart cookie haha. Yes! My Dad has an Argos card which we have utilized for a sofa and the Xbox but Dad has used his card and then we have paid him the money over a couple weeks. I think the Argos card is really good for people moving etc.


  2. Always enjoy these posts Danielle. I really liked your answer to the money question. So true, and I think like you the only loans I'd ever want attached to my name are ones for things I truly need like a house/car or something similar, like my student loan. I've never applied for a credit card or store card because I don't really trust myself not to use it when it's not absolutely necessary and like you, I much prefer to work towards things - I'm not good with hand-outs and it's something I struggle with, maybe a little bit of pride getting in the way, but I can definitely connect with that! - Tasha

    1. Thank you!
      I'd just get far too stressed if I had any kind of debt over my head. I think I'll be the same when I get a mortgage too but that's a must because I've spent over £40,000 in rent over the past 5 years :O


  3. I was always brought up to not spend money I don't have too. I've seen so many people I know get themselves in a big mess,.. I don't think I could handle the stress of it!
    That said, I do have a mortgage and a student loan, and I class them both as a sort of 'reasonable debt' because they can be hard to avoid!

    1. It's crazy isn't it? I would literally be having constant panic attacks...more than usual ha.
      They are probably the only debts that most people have to have though!
