So I got my first award this week…

I was pretty excited when fellow blogger The Boyfriend Drama awarded me with the Life is Good award this week.  I’ve been wondering if I would ever join the club of the decorated bloggers because let’s face it, everybody loves to be recognized for their work.  Of course, with great power comes great responsibility, and now I must answer the questions that go with the award and pass it on to some deserving bloggers.

1. Thank the person (people) that gave you the award.

2. Answer 10 survey questions.

3. Pass along the award to bloggers you think are fantastic.

4. Let those bloggers know you have given them an award.

Here we go.

1. If you blog anonymously, are you happy about doing this? If you aren’t anonymous, do you wish that you had started out anonymously, so you could be anonymous now?
I definitely don’t blog anonymously, but I have tried to move more towards my pen name in some of my outreach.  I don’t think I would have had any early success blogging anonymously since my original base of fans were people that knew me.  I think my content is universal enough not to put me in any real jeopardy, though I am definitely careful about how I say things (you know, to protect the innocent and all).

2. Describe the incident that shows your stubborn side.
“The” incident. Ha!  I can hear my friends laughing now.  I can be very, very stubborn, and for good reason. Because usually, I am right. 🙂

3.What do you see when you really look into the mirror?
It depends on how long I look in the mirror, the time of the month, if the lights are on or off, and whether or not I am intoxicated. It ranges from super sexy and confident to a real hot mess.

4. What is your favorite cold summer drink?
I nice Corona usually does the trick, and if I’m at an Indian restaurant, a good Mango lasse… ooh and smoothies. Love smoothies.

5. When you take time for yourself, what do you do?
Writing, resting, playing with the puppy, watching mindless tv.

6. Is there something you still want to accomplish in your life?
There’s a lot I want to accomplish. Hopefully I have the time to get to it all. I am young, right?….right?

7. When you attended school, were you the class clown, the overachiever, the shy person, or always ditching?
In high school, it depended on what I could get away with and how good or bad I was at the subject.  I was quiet or “missing” in the classes I did bad in.  In college, I guess I was an overachiever in some ways since I graduated early, but I still managed to have fun…a lot of fun.

8. If you closed your eyes and wanted to visualize a very poignant moment in your life, what would you see?
Wow. That’s a tough one.  There are so many moments that had a real effect on my life. The first ones that come to mind are actually kind of sad.  I think I have to save this one for a full blown post.

9. Is it easy for you to share your true self in your blog, or are you more comfortable writing posts about other people and events?
I write about my life in a way that I feel others can relate to.  I know I’m not going through unique experiences.

10. If you had a choice to sit down and read a book or talk on the phone, which would you do and why?
I’ve had a lot of trouble reading lately — I just can never clear my mind long enough to get into a good book.  I usually sit down and call a friend.  I keep a list of people I should call regularly in my bedroom for these occasions.  Sad, but if I don’t do it that way, I sometimes don’t keep in touch.

And the winners are…

Dezolutions: I’m bias to this blog because the author is my BFF, but it’s really an inspiring, fun, and entertaining blog worthy of recognition.

Live Laugh Love: This blog is basically the epitome of this award. Very entertaining and high energy.

Sara Swears A Lot: Because this girl is just too funny.

Now it’s your turn winners. Share the love!
