One Lovely Blog Hop

Award Post

Aspirations of flight picked me to do the one lovely blog hop!

The rules for One Lovely Blog Hop are as follows: list 7 interesting facts about myself and nominate 10 other blogs I find awesome to join the blog hop.

7 supposedly interesting facts about my life: (Let me just preface this with a…”I don’t find these interesting at all,” comment. Because I don’t.)

  1. My birthstone is garnet. Classy. Yet still so bold. According to Google, it is considered a great gift to symbolize trust and friendship….Ha.

2. I had a twin in the womb. It did not exactly make it out of the womb. There is something deep inside of me that wants to shrug my shoulders and be all like…Survival of the fittest man.But I feel like there’s a bunch of con-choice lookin’ at me all like WTF?! Can you imagine two of me though? Epic, but let’s get real.

There can only be one.

  1. I have had blonde hair, red hair, black hair, brown hair, straight hair, curly hair…well, you get the picture. Every time I go through a break-up, I dye my hair and then pretend I’m Sydney Bristow from Alias for 7 minutes and 30 seconds. It’s a thing.

4.Every childhood picture of me I am wearing the craziest outfit you can imagine. Think leopard pajama pants, striped tee and bunny ears. Not all that different from my fashion sense now, but I always look towards my mom bitterly like…Could you not have done something with that situation?

5.Every time I hear sirens or see an emergency vehicle I panic. Oh God! What do I do? Pull to the right of the road? The left? Follow my heart?Which side of my chest is my heart on? After a scenic google search, apparently the heart is relatively close to the center of your chest, which doesn’t really seem like the best place to stop my car when I hear sirens. But hey, it’s not life and death ya know?

6.I have always wanted a song written about me. I know that it’s not that groundbreaking, but it’s true. I always tell my musician friends to which they respond, “Everyone wants a song written about them!” to which I respond, “Wow you just categorized me with everyone…no wonder you can’t write a song about me!” Ugh. Musicians.

7.Wow we are already on the last one of these nifty facts. I haven’t even had nearly enough time to talk about myself yet! It’s like you think you’ve come this far (*insert hand gesture*), when you’ve really come this far (*insert hand gesture*) but to everyone else, you just seem like a crazy person typing 7 facts about yourself on your work desktop ya know? So #7. Not my favorite number exactly. I would tell you my favorite number, but we only have 7 facts and why would I waste one of them on my favorite…16. My favorite number is 16.

THE GUIDELINES

Thank and link the person who nominated you.
Add the award to your post and site.
Answer 10 questions provided to by the person nominating you.
Provide 10 questions of your own to be answered by those you nominate.
Nominate your bloggers for the award. (AND comment on their blogs to inform them.)

THE Questions (I did not do all 10 because I’m sort of a rule breaker)

If you could change one thing about your country, what would it be?

The name…I would change it to cluster fuck.

What is one thing about your country that makes you unbelievably proud?

Freedom of speech obviously.  Read my blog.  Eek, the government’s like…We should probably do something about that.

Do you remember your dreams? If so, what is the last dream you had that affected you?

Yes, a lot lately for some reason.  I recently had a dream that my roommate, friends, and coworkers threw me a surprise birthday party.  Mid-party they all gave me the cold shoulder and stopped talking so I dramatically said, “Party’s over!  Just go home!”.  The dream made me feel alienated….surprise surprise.  I always have dream hangover too, so the next day I was like all bitchy to my friends thinking they ruined my birthday…which is months away for the record.

If a blogging genie came to you and offered you three blogging-related wishes, what would you wish?

  • I wish I had unlimited inspiration 24/7. Sometimes I fall asleep writing my posts they are so boring.
  • I wish I got more fucking comments. I love meeting new people and hearing what they have to say.
  • I wish that everything I wished for in my blog posts came true. Like…Oh I could use my school loans paid off, better just make a blog post about it.  BAM no more debt!

Do you believe in ghosts? Aliens?

Neither.  Both.  Fuck I don’t know.  I’ve had some creepy/borderline ghost potential occurrences for sure.  The first day I started working at the church, the music started playing from a radio where no one was in the room.  I was like…fuck I need a drink.  Cheers to divine intervention!

Questions for My Nominees:

1. What is your favorite book and why?  (One question at a time is overrated.)

2. Arranged marriages.  Yes or no?

3. Explain in your own words what pension means?  I’m mostly just confused about this and looking for answers in all the wrong places.

4. Do you believe in jinxes?  Like jinx you owe me a coke jinxes…I guess superstition in general.

5. Where do you stand in the whole nature versus nurture debate?

6. Do you believe in fate and why?

7. What is your favorite phrase or saying?

8. Where exactly do you think Waldo is?

9. What is the last song you listened to?
