I thought it would be fun to do a Get to Know Me Q&A. There’s been a lot of changes over the years. Especially just with my blog in general. This way you can get to know me and hopefully if you like it, I can do more in the future.

Questions & Answers

Full Name

My name is Erika Elizabeth Alexandria Parks. My brother gave me my first name. His name is Eric. My mom and father both had a grandmother named Elizabeth. And Alexandria was the name of an actress that my mother liked.

Meaning Behind My Blog Name

I talk about this a little bit in,Where Would We Be Without Support?, I think. But my intention with this blog is to share my thoughts, views, and opinions. So essentially, I’m sharing myself.

With my first blog, PAE reviews, I wanted to involve my name somehow. EAP Reviews didn’t look or sound good to me so I settled on, PAE Reviews. The blog title, Join The ME Project came about on its own in a way. It was the name of my side project and then it became my blog.

3 Fears

Bugs, disappointing my loved ones, big bodies of water

Last Song I Listened To

Bad by Tablo featuring Jinsil. This song is one of my absolute favorites.

Favorite Movie

Night at the Museum is one of my favorites. I actually like the sequel and the third one. I’ve always been a history buff and I tend to stick to comedies and family movies so this is right up my alley.

Favorite Songs/Music

I have too many songs to list them all, but I’m pretty selective when it comes to genres of music. At the moment I like: 90’s R&B, Classic Rock, Funk, KPop, some Pop.

A Fact About My Personality

I’m an introvert, usually, in conversation, I’m the listener, not the talker. I’ve always been better at communicating when I could write things down.

What I Dislike Most About Myself

I’m constantly overthinking and worrying too much. I’m naturally an anxious person. I’ve gotten better at it over the years, but every once in a while, I’ll drive myself crazy worrying over something.

What I Like About Myself

My sense of humor. I try not to take things too seriously, my mom always says that you need to have humor in your life.

My Relationship With My Parents

As I mentioned before, my father isn’t in my life. But my mother is just about my favorite person on this earth. I tell her just about everything because I know that even if I don’t like her advice at the time, it’s what I need to hear in the end. Plus, she’s simply hilarious.

Last Time I Cried

I cry about small things frequently. I think it’s a good stress releaser. But the last time I had a huge ugly cry was when I found out that a good friend and mentor had not only passed, but he died months before. I talk about that in, Teen Ink| Personal Experience & Saying Goodbye

Favorite Sports Team

I like College Basketball in general. I’m not loyal to one team, I just go crazy during March Madness.


Plenty, I have scars on my knee from two surgeries. Then I have scars on my right elbow, forearm and wrist from a Carpal Tunnel and Cubital Tunnel surgery. And now, I have scars on my hip from my recent hip surgery.

Day or Night?

Night. I’ve always done my best writing and thinking at night. I can barely function in the morning, especially without coffee.
