So I return from my little blogging vacation to find out I was nominated for an award! I cannot simply ignore this award I need to thank, http://reflectionsofasinglegirl.wordpress.com/2013/03/22/who-me-well-thank-you/ for nominating me! This is truly an honor and I am so sorry I didn’t notice it sooner! Part of the rules of accepting this award is answering 11 questions that the nominator laid out so without further ado…
1. If you could have one song as the theme song for your life, which song would it be?
I think in the mode I have been in lately my “theme song” would have to be “B*tch” by Meredith Brooks. I know the song is a bit off color but it really highlights my personality. It also shows that it to be with me “you may need to be a stronger man” aka I am not changing for anyone even though I acknowledge my crazy. I just happen to like my crazy 🙂
2. Do you believe that it is better to have loved and lost than to never loved at all?
I really do. I have to say that even when you have lost someone the memories are always there. The memories can bring a smile on a lonely day. Sure, the pain can creep in but imagine never having that amazing feeling of being in love? I dont think you have lived if you havent loved.
3. What can always bring a smile to your face?
Music. Music is seriously my cure for every mood. It can pump me up when I am already happy, it can be sad with me when I feel like being miserable, it can fire me up when I need to be angry. It is basically the all in one drug.
4. Words you live by?
Everything happens for a reason. This is so true in so many departments in life. Sometimes we dont know what the reason is at the moment but at some point you will find out and it will be worth the wait.
5. Biggest fear?
Ending up alone. But I am becoming more and more comfortable with this possibility as I get older. With a family like mine you are never really alone 🙂
6. What is your favorite book?
To date my favorite book is still “Poppy”. It is a little kids book but it brings back to me so many good memories that I can help but love it.
7. What do you believe are your three best qualities?
My compassion for others- although in some ways it can be seen as my biggest flaw.
My ambition- I work hard and never give up. This is a quality I really wish more people had but it seems nowadays it is not common.
My sense of humor- I can be down right funny if you find dry sarcastic humor entertaining. I love being the girl that can bring a smile to your face when you would otherwise be upset.
8. If you could have any super power what would it be?
The power of persuasion. There was a character on Heros that could persuade people to do whatever she wanted by her words. It was more powerful than pure manipulation. Her words had some kind of magic that entranced the victim and made them want to bend to her will. I have been obsessed with that power ever since I saw the show.
9. If you could marry a movie star would you? Who?
Of course. Johnny Depp. Age is only a number! Dont judge!
10. What is the most important thing life has taught you.
That it is too short! Too short to worry, to short to work your life away and too short to not appreciate every moment you get because each moment you are given someone is living their last.
11. What is your funniest childhood story of yourself?
4) What’s the #1 most played song on your iPod?
