Twenty Things About Me

Thanks for joining me here at the Hodgepodge Hippie! My name is Jessica Hilty, and I am a wife and mama (and daughter…and sister πŸ˜€ ) living here in the Midwest. I have lived here my entire life, only going between two adjacent counties. I thought it would be fitting for my first post to answer a few questions about myself so we can get to know each other. Without further ado…

With whom do you feel like you can be yourself?

Mostly? My two year old son. πŸ˜‰ Also, my husband and my mom and siblings.

What quality do you admire most about one your closest friends?

Her determination to succeed, coupled with her constant consideration for how her actions affect others.

What would make you fall out of love with someone?

Dishonesty. Lack of humility. Though I don’t know if I’d fall in love with those qualities to begin with. πŸ˜‰

If money didn’t matter, what would be your dream job?

I am living one of them right now. πŸ™‚ Other than being a mama, I’d love to perform. Sing, act, dance…or run an orphanage, if I had unlimited funds.

What’s more important to you; intelligence or a sense of humor?

Probably a sense of humor. What good is intelligence if you can’t have fun with it?

What is your favorite book and why?

I could not choose! Books are life. For nostalgic reasons, I’ll say the Harry Potter series.

Are you more liberal or conservative?

Neither πŸ˜‰ but I guess I’d say my ideals tend to fall more into the conservative camp.

Is money or power more important to you?

Eek. Both are really dangerous in the wrong hands and I don’t think anyone should have too much of either…power would probably be the better one to have though. But not power OVER anyone. Just the power to make a real difference somehow is what I would want.

Do you follow your heart more or your head more?

Heart. 100%. Highly empathetic woman, here…my feelings tend to decide things for me…LOL.

If you had $1 million to donate to any charity in the world, which one would you donate to?

Honestly? None. I would personally give the money to those in need around me.

Who is your favorite singer/band/musical group?

Not possible. Maybe a favorite out of each genre…but I cannot choose overall! It changes all the time.

Do you believe in second chances?

It honestly depends on the offense. I tend to give second chances though..and thirds…and fourths…

Have you ever thought about what names to give your future kids?

Of course! I am a very family-centered person, and I love names. Aaaaand I’m a planner.

What memory do you wish you could erase from your head?

There are a few, actually. I know; not a juicy enough answer, right? πŸ˜‰

Have you ever resisted temptation?


Are you more attracted to brain or brawn?

Brain, for sure. Luckily though, my husband has both. πŸ™‚

Would you consider yourself more spiritual or religious?

Definitely spiritual. I don’t feel like one set of rituals (religion) is better than another, but I do like to have a routine and a place of worship. I was raised Roman Catholic.

Would you spontaneously take a trip with someone you just fell in love with?

Absolutely! Carpe Diem! I almost did, with my now-husband. It would’ve been three to four months after we started seeing each other.

Thanks for hanging out with me for a bit! Comment your thoughts and I’d love to see you guys recreate this post with your own answers! πŸ™‚
