i've been included!

August 16, 2013

I'm not gonna lie - inside I'm still that awkward kid who is hoping not to get picked last...or get overlooked completely. Even in blog world, these feelings can sneak up on me. That darn liebster award finally made it my way (twice, I will have you know)! And then suddenly this "you should know" starts circulating. I was feeling left out again until the lovely Miranda sent a nod my way. Thanks girl!

So, here you are: the things you get to know about me that I'm sure you were just dying to.

If you could meet any blogger in person, who would you choose?

Oh my. Many of them make my day. I will narrow it down to three but I would love to meet so many!

Karla and Veronica from The Newlywed Game linkup. Love them! And Aleshea, one of my Cara Box partners. I read her "about" page and knew we were supposed to be friends!

Oh, I lied...my first "little," Mandy! She lives somewhat nearby so really I have no excuse!

Blogs you're loving right now?

Carolina Charm is the one that really got me back into blogging, so I always read her posts.
I also enjoy Back East Blonde. Half of her posts are things I've thought but never actually written...and funny!
Last but not least....he's not a social blogger and he certainly isn't a "20-something," but oh how I love Jack Spence of The "World" According to Jack. I am a Disney nerd and love love love his various write ups regarding the parks. He is on leave and I am counting the days til he returns with new content in January.

What's your biggest struggle in life?

I would say financial worry. My love life is where I thought it would be, but the rest of life often seems rough because my career is nowhere near where I thought it would be! I am often frustrated that I did so well in school only to earn what I did with just my HS diploma. Losing my job recently didn't help either. I'm currently in an OK place, but I know once I see some bills, I will go right back to panic. I need to trust that God will provide, even if I don't understand how.

How did your blog come about?

You can read more here, but I wanted to improve my quality of life and learn to do more myself. I thought of this during the New Year, but didn't want this to be some flaky resolution that came and went in a week. So, I started the blog to document what I wanted to do/have done, and also to be writing regularly again (I was a journalism major).

Name one good deed you did that went unseen.

Here's where my cynical side comes out:

"No good deed goes unpunished."

Yep. It's true. So I'm not telling. I'm OK to let it be.

Favorite thing to do in your spare time?

Right now, I'm really really focusing on getting my Arbonne business up and running. I LOVE the stuff and I really want to succeed. I haven't had much of a personal life because of work, and I feel ready to just take my life back! So I am increasing my online presence and trying to get more workshops booked!
