You said you'd like to be a chef. Is this something you'd actually consider or is it more a dream job?
This is what my main problem is. I think at the end of the day it's just a dream job/fantasy
I don't think it's particularly feasible or something I'd ever do all things considered
I guess I'd only do it if like... I was out of a job and totally lost and needed to start over for some reason, you know? Otherwise I think don't think I'd go back to school/get trained etc just to start a career from scratch. But I do love cooking/watching cooking shows etc, I find it very interesting.
How many states have you visited?
Let's see... New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, Illinois (only for a lay-over), Missouri (only for a lay-over), Florida, Arizona, Nevada. So 11.
How many states have you driven in?
3 - New York, New Jersey, Connecticut.
What was the best thing about today?
Getting *some* relief from the dentist for my issues going on. I'm feeling better. I also did not go to work so that was a plus
Which of your siblings are you closest to?
Definitely my younger sister. My two older brothers are only a year and a half apart, I'm 4-5 years younger than them, and my sister is 7 years younger than me - we have quite a spread
I think based on age though we just naturally grew closer in pairs - my brothers, and then me and my sister. It also helped that they were away in college when she was really growing up and we kinda just had each other, you know? We also have by far the most common interests. I will say though that my whole family is really close.
What's the worst thing you ever did to one of your siblings or that they did to you?
I really feel like I have been quite drama free so anything I say will probably be petty
There's some major stuff that happened between my brothers that just makes my stuff pale in comparison! When my sister was very young I told her we had another sister who was sucked in by the bathtub drain and we never saw her again, so if my sister took a bath she would only hit the drain switch after she got out and would start screaming if it happened before
I think it was quite traumatic
This one definitely lasted a while, lol.
Why did your parents name you Matthew?
I asked them once for a school project, hoping for some juicy story, but it was more so just something that fit and seemed right to them and came naturally
My middle name is my maternal grandmother's maiden name, though.
If you could have chosen your first name, would Matthew be in consideration? What other names would be?
I think so, I quite like my name. My confirmation name that I chose is Patrick which I also like.
