You ASK, I ANSWER.

A month ago, I posted "ASK" and welcomed any and all questions you had for me. I promised to answer every single one... for the most part.

So, you ASKED, and now you get your ANSWERS.
All 35 of them.
Whoa. Baby.
I hope you enjoy my Part 1, Part 2, and oopsy-daisy Part 3.

Part 1: Dobby, Daniel and Faith

Part 2: The Blog and Me


Part 3: Part 2 of Part 2

I have NOT watched these videos. I recorded them and promptly walked away in order to resist the urge to delete them and re-record. What you see is what you get. I really am not sure what I'm doing in them half the time... but I tell you what, it was some well-spent fun!

Next time I vlog, I promise I will try to express a little more enthusiasm.
I think I was a little nervous about trying to fit 35 questions into a vlog that didn't take forever and a day.

Oh-- and I'll also try to make more attractive faces during the entire vlog so YouTube will give me more favorable thumbnails to choose from. Unless, maybe... just maybe they were playing off my "saucy-ness" and giving me thumbnails that they just knew would make you smirk at my awkwardness.

You are brave! I refuse to do vlogs because I hate the way my mouth moves and I'm pretty sure everyone would make fun of my accent, haha. You look super cute though!

Shauna said...

Great vlogs, you did well!

P.S. Love those scarfs.

Aunie, you are wonderful in front of the camera! I know the second video got cut off, but I did see your "Pulling Back" post earlier, so I know the answer to the Trich question. My love goes out to you, dear!

I don't even have words.... you are absolutely not the friend I made 4years ago!!! I can't believe the hypocrisy you have demonstrated. You promised that you would post any answer to ANYTHING you were asked and you skimmed over half the questions asked. Just because the answers are hard doesn’t mean you should skip over them. A lot of your friends from your earlier history are still interested in how your story will end, and by refusing to acknowledge these things happened it feels like you are disregarding all the messages you learned from these lessons. I’m so happy you found God and are onto a happier life; just provide readers what they have been promised. I unsubscribed after this video because it seems you only want to talk about how amazing your life is now and how you don’t have any troubles with your new relationship/life. For your religious followers, it seems like you are discrediting any experiences you have had are having now and only reporting how much better your life is. I’m glad it is better, but you have to fully explain the bad to be able to recognize the good. I was looking to you as an example, but with the hypocrisy you have demonstrated between blogs and blog posts has made me question you as a person, as a friend, and has even made me question my religion. In one blog you say you feel beautiful without makeup and doing your hair… the next you say you feel frumpy. In one blog you say you lost so much weight before your marriage because you were so depressed…. then you advertise for the personal trainer you used to lose weight…. You cannot simply “choose” religion and have all past/present trial removed…. Skipping over your past makes it seem like you avoid things that are challenging and not choosing to talk about your past in this blog has revealed that weakness that you have. It appears that religion is working for now, but as soon as you find the next best thing you will be moving on. I’m frustrated that you posted, ‘I’ll answer anything even from anonymous responses’ and you simply didn’t. Have you ever stopped to think that the anonymous responses you received are from your old, true friends that are so scared to lose your friendship because of your intense change that they will not reveal their identity?? You promised to respond to all questions and didn’t. You’re not the reliable person that was once well known…… I hope that Daniel and church keep you happy for now and your next obsession will keep you happy for the time being. I’m sorry to say goodbye to our friendship…. I honestly tried.

^ Wow.

I was just about to leave a comment on how sweet and awesome you are, how much I've loved getting to know you, and to thank you for the lovely shout out which totally made me blush, but I was caught off guard by the irritating Anonymous comment above.

It really makes me sad to read such a judgmental response from someone in your past, especially after seeing how much of yourself you expose on here. Some things are too personal and emotional to vlog about, and if that person really cared they would understand why you didn't want to rehash the whole marriage/divorce thing. Not to mention, that question was inappropriate. I wouldn't expect you to answer ANY question out there just because someone asked... that would be like me asking, "Hey Aunie, I want to know what your favorite sex position!" *watches videos* WHAT?! YOU DIDN'T ANSWER ME?! OMG I HATE YOU!

OK, enough sarcasm.

You know I love you girl. Stay strong- you are amazing inside and out and the epitome of wonderful <3

Miranda @ All Things Lovely said...

Ditto on what Kristen said regarding Mr/Mrs Anonymous. Reading their comment got me very heated, but I think Kristen addressed it on point :)

You are wonderful dear, and it is completely more than okay not to want to rehash the bad. There's a past of mine I've only briefly discussed on my blog, and not in detail because there's a reason its the past: its wher its meant to stay. It's a part of who we are, but dwelling on it and revisiting it isn't always healthy.

Love you girl <3

Lauren said...

Hey lady! Your guest post is officially up! Thanks for being patient :) Have a great day xo

Emily said...

Aunie,
You are so lovely...and your vlogs are a really nice way to get to know you better. Thanks for sharing and being open. Don't let the nasty anonymous comment get to you...just delete and move on! I believe we should not dwell on past sorrows and it's important to live in the present and embrace happiness.

Cheers,
Em

Dana @five30three said...

You are so great on camera. And you are just as sweet as I thought you'd be!

My voice is not sweet like your yours!

Annie said...

I am amazed that you fit 35 questions into these vlogs! I ramble a lot so I feel like it would take me far longer to answer all those questions.

I'll have to look into Michael Connolly's books. I've been into the mystery/crime genre more often than usual lately.

You and I have the same vlogging style: film, upload, done. I never watch my vlogs again and I forget what I say within about twenty minutes of filming it, haha.

Katie said...

aunie you are adorable and wise and honest and I loved your videos! thank you for sharing! you are awesome!

Brittanie said...

Love your blog and vlog! I'm a fellow BSU Alumni and Idaho lover now living life on the east coast! Crazy train above needs to move on and post somewhere else. If you have the balls to air out some dirty laundry, have some balls to say who you are and try to work it out.

Either way, love your answers and so glad you did this!

I am dismayed by your public attack on someone who essentially has found some happiness and peace in their lives, found balance between unhealthy weight-loss and healthy exercise and has moved forward in a personal and spiritual way. It's not the mistakes you make but the way you rise from them that should be applauded. As a 'friend' you would celebrate in her happiness not dwell selfishly on what she 'owes' you. This is spiteful, cowardly and unfair. And in the spirit of your own anonymous attack I will not be leaving my name. I for one don't want your poisonous rants anywhere near my part of the blogosphere.

Jamie said...

Love love love the vlogs! Like I said about your first vlog, it's nice to put a voice and face to the blogger :)

Thanks for sharing and I can't wait to see more!

<3 Jamie

Brenda said...

As someone who knows the history and considers myself one of your friends, I am very disheartened by the comments by Anonymous. If that person was truly your friend they would already know and understand why you don't want to publicly discuss it. I am so sorry they feel they need to do this in a public forum. I am proud to be your friend Annelise!

Kelsi said...

Thank you for sharing! Please continue to be YOU and someone who can be that hateful and hurtful was never a friend. Head up pretty girl! :)

Chelsea said...

Aunie - you are ADORABLE and you should not have to justify not answering questions about your past, because it is YOUR past and you have moved on! Love ya girl :)

Nicole Marie said...

You are soooo pretty! Glad you had enough guts to do this!! I am still trying to get some.

5ohWifey said...

Wow what an unbelievably hurtful and unnecessary comment.

Lisa @ MMT said...

So glad you posted these videos! Feels like we got to know you better. You are so soft spoken, sweet and funny. I love how honest you are in these videos and on your blog.
