This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging, and they do it with so much love and passion.

WHO NOMINATED ME AND MY THANKS

I was nominated by Andrea from The Perks of being Different . I thank her from the bottom of heart for this great award. I’m glad she thinks so much of my blog. What a great compliment this is especially coming from another great blogger.

ANDREA’S QUESTIONS TO ME

  1. Which Disney or Looney Toons character does your own character relate to? As I thought about this question, I finally decided that I couldn’t think of just one character but my character relates to a combination of characters. I think if we are really honest with ourselves everyone is a combination of characters. 
  2.  Would you like to go back to the 90’s, a time without internet? Actually, I was in college in the 90’s and we had internet at the college. However, I would love to go back to a time without internet. So much simpler. Of course, I’m one of those people who do not own a cell phone only a computer.
  3. Do yo like to cook from scratch?(make your own sauces, own dough from bread/pasta etc.) Cook?(laughing), I don’t cook. I think I cooked twice real meals but otherwise I like making popcorn the best.
  4. What would you do on a first date? I think I would learn as much as I could about my the guy I’m thinking about dating.
  5. Whats’ your favorite way of transportation? Hands Down A Car.
  6. What your favorite emoji? I’m sure there are more emojis out there on cell phones but since I don’t have a phone just a computer, my top 3 favorite emojis are:
  • Cat >”<
  • Graduation Girl 👩‍🎓
  • Santa Clause 🎅

MY BEAUTIFUL STORY:

I was in college and one of my professors took the class to hear Maya Angelou speak. After we listened to her speak we had the opportunity to ask questions and meet her. She was quite a lady. I learned a lot from her. I wrote a post called WHAT MEETING MAYA ANGELOU DID FOR ME .

I not only got to hear Maya Angelou speak but I got to meet her too. Boy was I excited. I learned lots just by listening to her.

One of the main things I learned from her and learned growing up is when someone puts you down smile at them and tell them you hope they have a great day. You will not only surprise them but you’ll find it’ll make your day better too. Also, remember that a good attitude is always better than a poor attitude.

Have a great day everyone.
