Haha! That was hard! Next question!

Oh there are so many places I would like to go! China, Japan, USA. If I had to pick one, I’d choose New York. Or Tokyo. Oh I can’t decide!

Are you a registered organ donor?

Yes! Also I have to say that I live in Wales, UK and the law is changing soon where you will have to sign up if you DON’T wish to donate, we will presume consent here in December 2015. Awesome, eh?

  1. Thank you so much for the nomination! I loved reading your responses, and you have such good questions for us! It might take me a little bit to write the post; I am horrible with procrastinating. (well, I suppose good at procrastinating? haha) But I will try to get it done in the near future! 🙂
