It's another first!!! Yea, I've been tagged!!!

My buddy, The Relentless Bride, has tagged me......................

So here goes my seven random facts!

1) I am obsessed with the action of speedometers turning to a "thousandth". From back in the day when they would roll over to now when they change digitally, I love when the speedometer is on an even number in the thousands. it's gotten so bad that my friends will pull off to the side of the road and take pictures with their camera phones & text them to me to make my day. I get so excited when mine rolls over! There is something magical when it says 43,000. hahahaha

2) I love hospital food! Absolutely love it! When I was little I used to beg my parents to take me to the hospital to eat hospital food when all the other kids wanted to go to McDonald's. Even to this day, I don't like a whole lot of seasoning on my food and prefer hospital food. Photo Source

3) I am a shark fanatic. I belong to seven different organizations that are for shark protection and preservation. Sharks are not horrific creatures, they just get a bad rap. Even the guy who wrote the movie jaws, has now spent his life trying to educate people on this amazing animal. I'm not surprised they come inland to try to feed with all the trash and pollution we dump in the ocean, millions of pounds a day. Cruise ships just sail out a little ways (only 3 miles to be exact) and open the hatch and there ya go! I'm not surprised sharks are hungry enough to bite since we are extremely over fishing and robbing them of the food and resources they need to survive. They have been around since the age of dinosaurs so I doubt they are not going to use their survival skills to continue to exist. Plus, people kill these creatures to make soup out of their fins and throw the rest of the body away. The killers don't even recycle it to "half-way" justify the killing! They just freakin' kill them! We treat the oceans like God will just give us another one when we finish abusing this one. But I digress. Not cool, not cool at all people!

4) I usually keep about 3 jobs at a time. I am not sure if I am afraid of commitment or what but I do not want to just have one main job and leave it at that. However, I usually keep about three different gigs that all take different talents to give me some excitement and variance to life. Maybe, it's a generational thing. I know lots of people my age that are like me. Photo Source

5) I HATE shopping, any kind of shopping, especially clothes and groceries, even if it's with YOUR money. E'nuf said!

6) I love to take pictures. By no means am I a photographer or am I good at it, but I love it. I truly believe a picture is worth a thousand words. Plus, looking at pictures, helps you develop analytical skills, creativity, reasoning skills, and a whole host of other things that are good for you.

7) I have a terrible memory/I'm a "post-it note" queen. people even buy me post it notes for Christmas and my birthday. This "random fact" kind of stems from number 6. That's one reason why I take so many pictures. Because my memory is bad, I need proof that it happened the way you said it did.

Now I must tag one person. I had a hard time choosing so I decided to go with whoever my newest follower is, hold on.......let me go take a look..........okay, I'm back......It's:

EARTH DAY!! One of my favorite celebrations! 3 ways you can help relieve the burden we've placed on the Earth!

Every time you turn around, there's a new holiday popping up like National Compliment Day celebrated on January 24th or International Dot Day celebrated on September 15th.

But who doesn't LOVE a reason to celebrate? I sure do!!

And one of those grand times for me is EARTH DAY!! I've been celebrating Earth Day since I was about 7 years old and each year, I execute some action, whether big or small, to contribute to protecting the planet.

Earth Day is an annual event celebrated on April 22 each year. Worldwide, various events are held to demonstrate support for environmental protection. First celebrated in 1970, Earth Day events in more than 193 countries are now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network. Additionally, many people also celebrate EARTH WEEK and plan activities throughout the entire week to celebrate nature and our beloved planet.

Plant-Based Eating Plan - Meal Prep (11/19) - 1 Week Trial

Hey Corner Clique!!

So it's mid November and while Thanksgiving and Christmas are still approaching, I have my eyes set on another upcoming holiday....... New Years Eve!!

Living away from my family means that there are some years when I am unable to go home for the holidays. This usually happens especially if it's the holiday season before our big family reunions, which happen every three years. This coming summer, we will be headed to Sacramento, California for our big gathering!!

I guess that brings me to my why..... I hope this doesn't sound shallow but..... I really want to wear (and look good in) a sequin dress for New Years Eve. Not just this year, but year after year, after year, after year, after year..............................Let's be real, sequin can be very unforgiving, it's just not one of those fabrics that everyone loves. But it can be so beautiful and festive during this time of year. Sequin makes me happy!! :-) Therefore, I'm going to work ha…
