What is the Mystery Blogger Award?

The award was created by Okoto Enigma. It was created as a way for blogs that haven’t been discovered to gain some recognition.

Three Facts About Me

So as not to bore you by rambling on about myself, I’m gonna keep my answers here short. If you need more elaboration, let me know in the comments!

1) I’m a Third Culture Adult.

2) I’m shorter and older than you think.

3) I really, REALLY hate adulting.

Julie’s Questions

What are your thoughts about the paranormal?
I believe that some people believe, but I’m gonna need some proof.

Do you think humans will overcome the climate problems, and why?
Sadly no. For several reasons, the biggest being money. People with money that have interests in industries that are environmentally destructive aren’t about to lose money over the environment. Greed is a bitch.

Aside from that, there are still too many people denying that climate change even exists. It’s impossible to take the required action when you can’t get the proper consensus.

Furthermore, even if we stopped producing everything that’s environmentally harmful and implemented clean strategies TODAY, we’d still have an impossibly large amount of waste left behind that would take years to eliminate.

I’ll still keep doing my part regardless.

What’s a story that really stuck with you?
Not so much stories, but things that I’ve seen while travelling tend to stick with me and remind me how lucky I am to be in the situation I’m in.

What’s your favorite trait about yourself?
I’m awesome! Haha, just kidding. I’m tenacious. I will keep going long after I think I can.

What is your hope for 2020?
I think you can guess what I want; more travel!

  1. What is a 3rd culture adult?

    Thanks for the nice write up of my blog! And your very logical take about the climate crisis. I’m glad you’re still doing your part nevertheless.

    I actually agree with you. I’m not optimistic, but I still harbor some hope.

    1. I actually made it up, but it’s like a Third Culture Kid, but instead of growing up in a different culture, I’ve spent my adult years in different cultures.

      With climate issues, I think it’s kind of one of those expect the worst but hope for the best situations.
