Our GirlBoss for this month is:Junie Haloway
I asked her some questions and here are her anwers:
1. Who is your biggest inspiration?
My biggest inspiration is myself, at this point. Who else can inspire me as much as the best version of myself?
2.How do you handle rude people?
Honestly, I can boil inside when meeting rude people, but I try my best to remain calm. Odd fact; I tend to cry when I’m angry or feel some sort of injustice. It won’t look pretty if I were to actually engage in a coversation with them.
4. What is the last thing you Googled?
“Flowers and Magic”
5. If you could donate 1 million dollars to any charity which one would it be and why?
I would donate to Progeria Research Foundation, just because I used to run a club at my school for it. I also want to see a cure for this rare condition. It’s quite heartbreaking.
6. Name one series you binge-watch
I love watching Grey’s Anatomy and I must’ve cried a billion times. I rewatch sad scenes and find myself buried in sadness. Basically, I highly suggest watching this show but at the same time, don’t if you’re already heartbroken.
7. If you could travel anywhere in the world for free where would you go?
I would go to Japan. I absolutely adore the culture there. I want to see that part of the world, especially nature. I want to visit some mountains and find myself, if that makes sense. (Refer to Eat, Pray, Love)
8. What is your favourite thing to do when you feel uninspired?
My favorite thing to do when I feel uninspired is read quotes and look at really amazing photography. It inspires the writer within me, and that’s when I find myself writing.
9. What is your biggest fear?
10. Celebrity crush?
Ed Sheeran. It’s probably because I had a dream about him a few years ago. I wasn’t really a fan back then. To put it shortly, I was very sad and he saved me.
11. What would your life theme song be?
I honestly can’t decide on this.
It isn’t exactly a poem, but I absolutely love this:
“I have lots of things to teach you now, in case we ever meet, concerning the message that was transmitted to me under a pine tree in North Carolina on a cold winter moonlit night. It said that Nothing Ever Happened, so don’t worry. It’s all like a dream. Everything is ecstasy, inside. We just don’t know it because of our thinking-minds. But in our true blissful essence of mind is known that everything is alright forever and forever and forever. Close your eyes, let your hands and nerve-ends drop, stop breathing for 3 seconds, listen to the silence inside the illusion of the world, and you will remember the lesson you forgot, which was taught in immense milky way soft cloud innumerable worlds long ago and not even at all. It is all one vast awakened thing. I call it the golden eternity. It is perfect. We were never really born, we will never really die. It has nothing to do with the imaginary idea of a personal self, other selves, many selves everywhere: Self is only an idea, a mortal idea. That which passes into everything is one thing. It’s a dream already ended. There’s nothing to be afraid of and nothing to be glad about. I know this from staring at mountains months on end. They never show any expression, they are like empty space. Do you think the emptiness of space will ever crumble away? Mountains will crumble, but the emptiness of space, which is the one universal essence of mind, the vast awakenerhood, empty and awake, will never crumble away because it was never born.”
13. What was the last picture you took?
14. What’s your biggest weakness?
My biggest weakness is feeling like I’m not good enough. When this happens, I find myself losing hope for life, and just wanting to sleep for a couple of years.
15. When you were younger, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be a whole lot of things, from Artist, Chef, to Astronaut, and even a soldier.
16. Tacos or Nachos?
This is like picking between your children. I love Tacos, but I would definitely say Nachos for this one. Ever had Vegan nachos? They’re amazing.
17. How would you describe yourself in one word?
“What’s meant to be will always find a way”
