Ask @SkylarkMelody:

LARK!!!!!!!!!! I bloody miss you. Like times a thousand. Tell me what is the best way for us to stay in contact more frequently?! I just sent you a Yahoo IM after playing with the Yahoo devils for 20 minutes to recover my dusty password. LOVE YOU

FLORENCIENNE!!!!!! I haven't popped onto Yahoo in ages, but will now to send a hello your way. My goodness, my lovely and beautiful friend, I've missed you too. I'm sorry for being so terrible about staying in touch. I'd felt a bit rudderless for a while, trying to figure out what to do with myself until September when the school year begins again, and so when I encountered an opportunity to go abroad I seized it. I've been in South Africa since April!! I was studying in Cape Town, and am now working for a couple of months in a Zulu settlement called Embo teaching HIV intervention and education programs.
I have all the faith in the world in you. I can't wait to catch up and learn more about what's been going on in your life recently. I love you --- always have, always will! :)

Are you afraid to fly in airplanes?

No, I'm not, which is definitely a good thing because on Friday I'm heading back to South Africa, and that entails a flight from LA to Dubai, then from Dubai to Johannesburg!

Omg, is that you on the LinkedIn log-in page (picture that is just to the right of the top left portrait)?

Ha, no, that's not me, but she does sort of look like my doppelgänger. 😀

Do you like the flavor mint in your sweets/drinks/food? What about products like shampoo/lotions/candles?

There's a coffee shop near school and in my hometown called Philz that has an iced mint coffee mojita I adore on hot days. I love the peppermint drinks during three holidays, too. As far as products, I like Dr. Bronner's peppermint soap and the spearmint Stress Relief line from Bath and Body Works.

Hey , would you be willing to sell your anthropologie love letters duvet cover to me?

I gave it to my little sister some time ago, and she still adores it, so unfortunately I can't sell it to you. I hope you find something else you like as much.

I’ve seen a lot of questions bouncing around, asking how you’ve changed from your childhood self and I want to flip the question. In what ways have you remained the same?

Habiba
I'm still OBSESSED with the color green and peacocks! I love walking on my hands. I make an art out of procrastinating sleep. I get a sugar high quickly.

Hope you haven't been too busy and are doing wonderfully, Lark! :) best wishes to you wherever you are

I popped back on here for the first time in ages and was greeted with your ray of sunshine. I've been busy, hence the reason I'm rarely on here anymore, but primarily with happy and fulfilling things. I wish you the bluest of skies. :)

Can we email please! I've missed you so much. :( Not sure if just hormonal, but I cried because I missed you!

Oh my goodness! I'm so sorry for taking ages to reply to this question. I've popped on here very rarely this year due to being perpetually busy. Of course you can email me anytime! skylarkmelody@gmail.com
Love and (((((Hugs)))))

HI I missed ur responses :)

Aw. I'm sorry I've been missing in action from Ask. I keep intending to dive into my inbox, and then life keeps throwing something else at me that will need to take priority. I do hope everyone here is happy and healthy, and I wish you all the bluest of skies. : )

Is it right to assume that women who don't post pictures of themselves as their profile picture on social media platforms are not good-looking?

It's a fallacious assumption. Though many people who post pictures of themselves on social media simply to chronicle and share their lives, there are also many who do so seeking validation. A woman who is at peace with herself and knows her worth without needing affirmation by "likes" might simply want to maintain her privacy. She might be so focused on living her life she might not want to give the time to sharing pictures of it online.

When you've deactivated in the past, have you ever read the answers of people you follow? If you haven't deactivated, in a hypothetical situation, would you read those people's answers?

Habiba
When I've deactivated in the past it was simply to prevent more questions from flooding in when I knew I wouldn't have the time to answer them. Some people felt slighted by the lack of a timely response, when it wasn't personal at all. Now that questions come in at a trickle due to my inactivity there's no reason to deactivate. But to finally answer the question asked, haha, no, I do not read anyone else's posts when I've deactivated. I don't come to the site at all then.

"Ignorance is bliss"- Thoughts on this?

I think children should have the pure bliss of naivety-crafted ignorance, but in adolescence and adulthood we all need to become aware and mindful. Knowledge is empowerment which when utilized thoughtfully can lead to fulfillment and bliss.

What's the biggest 180° turnaround you have had in an opinion you held strongly, and what happened to trigger that change?

In my early teens I believed that everything labeled natural or organic was inherently better for you and the environment. I didn't want to get the HPV vaccine. I was prey to the naturalistic fallacy. "Holistic healing" had a wholesome appeal to me. It seemed far gentler, kinder, and benign. Then I found out that it can actually be harsh, brutal, and detrimental, with little effectiveness.
I do still believe that nourishing your body with nutritious foods and habits such as exercise and mental self-care are imperative, but I'm definitely an ardent believer in science-substantiated medicine with a proven rate of efficacy when it is necessary. And I am a huge advocate of vaccination.

Pancakes or waffles?

Pancakes, though I've literally dreamed of these Belgian waffles from the Brentwood Sunday Farmer's Market. The almond one tastes like marzipan and bliss. Anyone on the Westside of LA should consider popping in for one.

Do you think laziness is the main reason as to why some women choose to not wear any makeup at all? Why?

No. Many women who don't wear makeup simply feel confident and comfortable in their natural, unembellished skin. Many are not lazy at all but simply choose to prioritize their time differently and not include a makeup routine. Many are budget-conscious and feel that their finances are better spent on other things. Many have other valid reasons, such as sensitive skin that doesn't react well to makeup.

What little things are enough to make your day?

little woman
A good hug; a rainbow; my Golden Retriever; an excellent iced coffee; an unexpected dash of joy such as contact from a long-lost friend. I had on fleek strawberry cupcake with strawberry icing today, and it was sort of ridiculous how giddy it made me.

It would be amazing to have search features in our inboxes :( I remember a while ago you answered a qs about studying and said something like 'retyping lectures notes everday'. I'm trying to be more eco-friendly and type my notes and was wondering if you had any tips about that &tips about retyping

I retype my notes on my laptop and do not print them, so it is still eco-friendly. : ) I find that retyping and organizing my class notes helps me to better understand the material and imprint it on my mind. I also will add in other relevant material. I mainly use EverNote. Have you ever tried it? If not, give it a go and see if you like it.
