10 Questions with Amy Lorraine Lohbihler

By Good Read Magazine Editors

What better way to follow Amy Lohbihler’s recent series than to ask her 10 "hard hitting questions". She’s shared her health and food experience, and she’s shared her personal journey with our readers. However, our editors still need to know a bit more. 

1. What do you think about when you're alone in your shower?

Amy Lohbihler: It's a time to let my mind wander, and lemme tell ya, it wanders! My thoughts in the shower ranges from anything between what I am I going to eat next, to something I said 14 years ago, to contemplating the meaning of life and society's constructs. Ya know, the usual. 

2. What's your favourite '90s jam? 

AL: Ok this may be a double question cover-er (something people don't know about me), but anything Green Day from the 90's does good for my soul. Geek Stink Breath will anyways be a top favourite. 

3. If you could be any animal in the world, what animal would you be and why?

AL: I would be a cheetah! I have always been drawn to cheetah print, so why not rock it everyday? In the gym I am a sprinter! So I wouldn't mind being the fastest animal in the world. They are dominating and like to hunt, but deep down, they're just big kitties who purrrrrr. (Fun fact: they purr instead of roaring)

4. What was the last gift you gave someone?

AL: My roommate is an artist and her work uses a lot of cow print. It was her birthday the other day and I found a new Ontario craft beer with cow print on the label, so I was like hey, perfect! 

5. What's the last thing you watched on TV and why did you choose to watch it? 

AL: American Dad. I have seen the entirety of this show but always go back to it because oft he character Rodger. He  just puts me in the best mood! I think he is hilarious! 

6. What should everyone try at least once in her life?

AL: Another double-questioner (bucket list), but I think everyone should go on a trip alone. From what I hear, and believe, it helps you grow as a person and experience places in a different light. Not a vacation, but a backpacking trip that you have to submerge yourself in the culture. 

7. What is the best advice you've been given?

AL: Somebody's gotta do it [in reference to being successful]. Why can't that somebody be you? IT CAN BE YOU. 

8. What is one thing people would be surprised to know about you? 

AL: I have the back of my head tattooed!

9. What are the last three items on your credit card statement? 

AL: Boring things because I like to pay in cash, and these things I can't:  1. Refilling my Presto Card 2. Netflix 3. Wifi Bill 

10. What quote do you live by?

AL: "The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do". Also, "Be Bold, Be Beautiful, Be You!"
