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 🎅

WHY I LOVE ME TAG

2658149737babd63f8095af21bbe8792

You’ve heard the saying “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”. How true this is because what may be ugly to one person may be pretty to another. So before you go calling someone ugly or different remember there’s someone out there that might consider you ugly and also remember we are all different in one way or another.

  2. I LOVE HOW I CARE. I love how I can care about others when they come to me with their problems.
  3. I LOVE THE FACT I’M A BULLYING SURVIVOR. You read right I survived being bullied. I was bullied through college and with the support of my family and my faith in God got me through it.
  4. I LOVE THE FACT I ACHIEVED 2 DEGREES.  I graduated from a community college with an Associate Degree in Elementary Education then transferred to a 4 year university where I achieved a Sociology Degree(BS Degree). I was told after Highschool by a counselor that I would never achieve either of these degrees.
  5. I LOVE THE FACT I’M SINGLE. I must admit that this was something I wasn’t crazy about when I was younger but as I got older and wiser and I got I actually love being single. I can do things when I want and can change my schedule if need be.
  6. I LOVE HOW I’M DIFFERENT/SPECIAL. I’m one of a kind and despite what others may think I love the fact I’m special/different from other people.
  7. I LOVE THE FACT I HAVE ROYALTY IN MY ANCESTRY. Yes, that’s right, I have royalty in my ancestry. Queen Elizabeth is in my ancestry(Not the current one). I didn’t even get an invitation to either royal wedding either. Guess it got lost in the mail. LOL 
  8. I LOVE MY BLUE EYES. I love my blue eyes because they go with every outfit and I don’t need to wear colored contacts.
  9. I LOVE MY KINDNESS. I’m one who likes to meet new people and go up to people and say hi and welcome them. I not only enjoy meeting new people but learning about others and where they come from.
  10. I LOVE LISTENING TO OTHERS. I like listening to others problems and giving them advice. Sometimes it’s easier because we’ve been through the same/similar situation.
  11.    I Love Me Because I’m  A Christian. This may seem like a crazy answer to some people but when I asked Jesus into my heart my life totally changed for the good. I’ve been blessed  many times over. Is my life easier? Not always but at least I know Jesus is there to help me.

           I could go on and on about What I Love About Me but won’t because my post                 would be too long.
