How Well Do You Know Me Tag

Recently Dulce from the blog A Juxtaposed Mind nominated me for the how well do you know me tag.

For the challenge she gave me, along with 10 other bloggers, 11 questions that we had to answer. In return we get to make up 11 new questions for 11 bloggers of our choice.

Let’s get started!
