75 Questions and Answers About Myself: Let’s Get to Know One Another
I am so excited and beyond grateful to share with you guys we have reached over 1000 WordPress followers, as of June 6, 2019. I set out a goal at the beginning of my blogging journey, last November, to reach at least WP 1000 followers and once I did, I would do a question and answer post so readers can get to know me a little better and hopefully have some commenters who share some of the same favorites, views, outlooks, and even opposing outlooks.
I am sharing this awesome news with you guys because I am very grateful. I have extreme social anxiety, but I want to help so many people overcome the darkest parts of their mind. Building up such an amazing, encouraging, and kind-hearted community helps in so many ways, especially with overcoming my social phobia. You guys have no idea how appreciative I am of you.
There was a time in my life I was afraid to post anything on Facebook, do online gaming with other people, or talk on the phone to my closest friends. I still have days where it spikes, but I have come a very long way. All the kind encouraging comments and messages are so appreciated, I just wanted to say thank you for all the support.
I also wanted to let you guys know that I do reply on every comment on here, I was emailed not to long ago asking why I only commented to some people and not others. Confused I went through and realized my mistake. Instead of hitting send when replying back, I would hit the reply button instead, accidentally erasing comments unaware my reply did not send. I try to comment back to everyone who comments on the posts, I apologize to those who have commented before and felt as if I ignored them. I assure you I was not, I mistakenly hit the wrong button.
Additionally, I will be posting a copy of the questions down at the bottom of the page if anyone would like to do this as well. I used 2 different websites to get the questions, as well as asking a few people to write out some questions I could answer.
I have also provided links to some of the items in this post. These are affiliate links to Amazon, as I am an Amazon Associate. Affiliated links are just links that redirect you to a product; if you chose to buy a product I get a small commission for redirecting you. It costs nothing to you.

75 Questions and Answers About Me:
1. Are you named after anyone?
My mother’s name is Christy and my dad’s name is Chris, so Crystal it was. My middle name is my grandmothers’ middle name, Jean.
2. When was the last time you cried?
Yesterday when reading a post on some of the cruel activities that are going on in the world. It breaks my heart seeing so much hatred and violence going on in the world.

We are all here trying to find our way through life, why is there so much hate?
3. Do you have kids?
I have a beautiful baby boy who is my world. I want him to be full of love, compassion, and acceptance towards everyone around him, so I try my best to be this way, to show him by example and not just by word. I hated when my parents would say, “do as I say, not as I do.” We learn by watching those around us, so I want him to learn by my positive example. Before my little one was born, I was not who I wanted to be and it was miserable. I did not want him to see that, so I started changing. Yes, I have one child who is my inspiration.

In the second grade, I had a friend a grade higher than me. The third graders were scheduled to go on a field trip. Through a misunderstanding, my friend invited me and my brother, who was in kindergarten at the time, to go with her. She misunderstood the teacher when the teacher said it was okay to bring up to two visitors, meaning parents. Both I and my brother went on the field trip and no one noticed until the end when they were doing a headcount. We got our very
first detention that day and a story for the ages.
My brother told his kindergarten teacher that our house flooded, and our refrigerator floated down the street because he was hungry. The teacher called our mom and my mother had no idea what she was talking about. My brother got in so much trouble when he got home, looking back it was hilarious.
17. What is your favorite drink?

20. What sports have you played?
When I was younger, I was a cheerleader for 3 years. Cheering is very competitive and can become dangerous. I will always argue that cheering is a sport, not just a sports sidekick. I was also in gymnastics for a short time. My softball interest depleted when I knocked 2 different people’s teeth out. Never play softball or baseball with me unless you are prepared to accidentally get teeth knocked out, ha-ha. I’ve tried a handful of sports, but I enjoy writing, drawing, and creativity more.

Some of my favorite YouTubers are Markiplier, Jacksepticeye, I Am The Real AK, John Green, and Maya Imani-Amani. There are countless others, but these are the ones off the top of my head. I have provided the YouTube links to each channel if you would like to check them out.

23. What is one of your bad habits?
One of my bad habits is overeating when I get upset or not eating at all when I become too depressed. It is very challenging, especially when I am trying to lose weight. I started at 250+ and lost over 50 pounds but have gained 15 back due to water retention from eating salty foods and backtracking to soda. I am in the process now of detoxing from caffeine once more. However, I know I can get back on track and continue moving forward to a healthier me.

One word that describes me is loving. I have a deep love for everyone, even when I’m done wrong I don’t hate anyone. The way I see it is I might not have liked the action taken against me, but there is no need for hate. Hatred is so heavy, I don’t like it so I choose to focus on one good thing about the person who wronged me, though I keep a distance after, depending on the severity of the wronged action.
29. What is one of your favorite quotes?
“Whether you think you can or cannot, you’re right.”

Before I found out Killian was on the way, I had experienced a miscarriage 4 months prior. Furthermore, we both almost died while I was giving birth to him. He was a month early, but if I hadn’t of gone in at the time I was having complications, we both would have lost our lives. Ladies, if your body is feeling off while pregnant, please don’t hesitate to go to the ER. I was going to push it off for 2 days until my appointment if I would have done that both my little one and myself would not be here.

My favorite anime changes all the time, right now it’s a tie between Fairytail, Black Clover, Black Butler, Naruto, Food Wars, and Seven Deadly Sins.

Like to always keep going no matter what, to always be a great friend, to fight for what you believe and more.

Harry Potter will always have a special place in my heart because I grew up with the books.
54. Who is your favorite author?
J.K. Rowling for creating a magical childhood for millions. She and Stan Lee are two creative producers that I look up to. My childhood was not always that great, having an amazing, magical world to dive into was my escape for many years.
55. What are your religious beliefs?
While many may disagree with me, I believe every religion holds some type of truth. The people who bring their religious beliefs and come together are what make it real. To me, Jesus was a teacher, just as Buddha, Muhammad, and countless others who brought light into this world through powerful guidance. I believe there is a God, yes, however, I do not believe in traditional teachings. I believe in mother nature, I believe in being kind to everyone you come across and fixing the times when not so kind. We all are one, trying to find our place in this great big world. I believe hell is something you can experience here on earth. I don’t really have a set religious belief because I believe if you treat others with love, respect, and kindness, you don’t have to worry about the afterlife. I don’t judge those around me, I have friends who are Christians, I have friends who are atheist, I have friends who are Pagan, etc. My point is we are all different, and that’s okay. We should all accept one another as is, just as Jesus taught. We should be mindful of others just as Buddha taught. Sometimes I think the road less taken is the road of acceptance, guidance, and love, even when our views are different.
56. What is your favorite musical instrument?
My favorite musical instrument is the piano. I love the sound of the keys being played. When I was younger I had a keyboard and started making up songs, I wish I could remember the ones I composed. I also enjoy the sound of the harp, it’s beyond beautiful. Those who can play the harp are truly impressive.
57. What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
My favorite ice cream flavor is chocolate. I can’t eat a lot of ice cream due to a very sensitive stomach, however, when I do decide to eat ice cream, I always go for classic chocolate.
58. What is your favorite physical activity?
My favorite physical activity is hiking or swimming. I enjoy nature and I love love love being in the water. I could swim all day every day.
59. What is your favorite way to pass the time?
My favorite way to pass the time is reading, writing, drawing, or gaming. While everyone was growing up and having fun together in their teenage years, I was in a facility for self-harm. I learned how to pass the time with creativity, a lesson I am very thankful for teaching myself. I do not need wifi or electronics to pass the time, which in today’s world is now rare, well to the younger generation at least.
60. What was your favorite subject in school?
My favorite subject in school was English, as well as History. I love writing and history equally. History gives us a look at how the past was, what we can learn from, what we can take from, and so much more. English is our way to communicate with the world, write our own stories, and leave our written works behind for future generations.
61. Did you go to college?
I went to college at Ivy Tech Community College for Computer Science and Graphic Design, I am a Sophmore on a break until I can save up and go back to finish my degrees. After I finish my Computer Science and Graphic Design degrees, I plan on going back for a Business and an English Degree.
62. What was your favorite tv show as a kid?
As mentioned earlier, my favorite childhood tv show was Rugrats. When I was pregnant with my son, I rewatched the whole show along with all the movies. I was feeling a deep sense of nostalgia when pregnant.
63. Are you afraid of heights?
I love the heights, being able to see the world at an elevated view is breathtaking. One of my favorite theme park rides is the hot air balloon ride at Six Flags Over Georgia.
64. Are you high maintenance?
Not at all. I don’t believe in buying name brand items unless that name brand is doing something positive for the community. Why would I pay $200 for a pair of jeans that I can find at Walmart for $20?
In a relationship, all I ask is for my partners time. I have me, I just want someone’s time, not money, gifts, or anything like that.
65. Are you more inclined to build your own empire or unleash the potential in others?
I strive to build my own empire that helps unleash the potential in others, so both. My goal is to help others out of the darkest parts of their minds. I am building a place for people to come to for answers about things like depression, anxiety, stress, how to cope with death of a loved one, and more.
I want others to know they can overcome anything life throws at them. When you go through something traumatic and hard to deal with, overcoming that trauma can be difficult. Sometimes by helping those around you, you tend to help yourself in the process.
66. If you had more courage in your life, what would you do differently right now?
I would host webinars and go to conferences, I am working towards doing both in the future. I have a YouTube Channel set up and ready to go. I will be doing the first video very soon. You can subscribe if you would like, hit the notification bell to be the first to know when the first video is posted.
67. What is the weirdest thing you’ve seen?
I believe the weirdest thing I’ve ever seen was when my brother and I were walking in a meadow behind our nanas house, we came across a snake was laying flat on its back playing possum. We almost stepped on it, out of fear we turned around ran a few paces back, and watched it for a second. My brother tossed a rock next to it and it still did not move. We walked around it thinking it was dead and made another lap. Once we got back to the spot the snake was at it was gone. It was crazy.
68. When did you have your first kiss?
My first kiss was in daycare and amusing, to say the least. We were having a Halloween party and all the kids got to come to daycare dressed up in costumes. I was a proud pink power ranger and my friend Skyler was Superman. We decided to run around and play a game of superhero, protecting all the other kids from the ones dressed as monsters. Remember the old tall metal slides? I climbed up one and Skyler thought it was a grand idea to tell me to jump off the slide, that he would catch me like Superman does in the show. I did and I ate gravel, rocks, and pavement. Frightened Skyler gave me a peck on the lips trying to calm me down. He saw his dad kiss his upset mother in the past, and thought it would help. It quieted me down for a second, only to scream ewwwwww and cry even harder. It was an unforgettable moment.
69. If you could be a Disney princess, who would you choose to be?
If I could be a Disney Princess I would be Belle. My favorite princess movie is between A Little Princess and Beauty and the Beast. Belle loves reading, going against the norm, and fighting for what’s right.
70. Do you have a collection?
I have a Disney collection. I am a huge Disney fan, my son has Mickey Mouse and Stitch everything. His first movie, show, anything to do with television was Stitch. It is still his favorite movie and clams him down when he begins to get extremely fussy.
71. What is one odd thing about you?
I come with my own dictionary. If I can not pronounce a word or think of a word I often come up with my own.
72. What is your greatest dream?
My greatest dream is to help guide the world into becoming more loving, accepting, and heartfelt. There is so much hatred, violence, and heartache it’s unreal. I want future generations to strive for a better world. My greatest wish is to build a solid foundation for the future. Silly and impossible it may seem, but it is my dream.
73. Do you sing in the shower?
I perform in the shower like I’m the lead singer in a band at a concert with millions of people. I love singing, it’s a great way to feel better after a long day.
74. Where is your favorite place to shop in the mall?
My favorite place to shop in the mall is Greenfields. I love how earthy and beautiful the store is. The one I go to where I’m located has amazing people working the counter. They are always so friendly and welcoming when you enter the shop and are genuinely helpful. It’s always refreshing when you see someone who is friendly, especially while they are working.
75. Where is your favorite place to eat?
My favorite place to eat would be Bob Evans. I love country cooking and the food there is amazing. I also enjoy Mexican food, Chinese, and Italian foods. Though, honestly, nothing beats a homecooked meal from the grandparents.

Thank you all for reading and supporting Maybe Crazy Help. While I know and understand this post is a bit different from the usual, it was a lot of fun to do. Here in the next few weeks, Maybe Crazy Help will not be posting as much. I have decided to take a few free courses in business management and English. Furthermore, I am in the process of developing an app for the website Maybe Crazy Help.
