Hi everyone! I was nominated for the Real Neat Blog Award for the fourth time! The lovely Maggie, from Dreaming of Guatemala, nominated me so I’m finally doing it! If you don’t know Maggie, you should check out her blog. She is a great writer and blogs about her life with her beautiful family while she looks forward to someday living in Guatemala!
So before going into the award just a bit about my day yesterday. I took a day off work and used that time to be super productive! I went to the dentist, who said I do not have cavities or mouth cancer, so that was great.
Then I went back home for lunch before submitting two homework assignments for my accounting class and completing my FAFSA for next year. If you don’t know, the FAFSA is an annoying online application to get financial aid for school. Since I’m filling it out for the 2018-2019 year, I don’t have to do it again (unless I go back to school later on). As a graduate student I don’t really qualify for scholarships anymore but I do get federal loans at student discounted interest rates so I still fill it out.
After that I worked to find resources for one of my two final projects before I headed out again. This time for a massage! It was my first massage and it was so relaxing! I plan to go every few months or so but I won’t go all the time or anything. I kind of want to try a chiropractor instead though since I do spend a lot of time sitting for work and school (and blogging).
I do have another day off scheduled in December so I have to find something fun to do after my eye appointment that day. I have no idea what I should try to get done!
Okay, back to the award!
- What are your favorite treats?
- What was your last dream about?
The Tenth and Eleventh Doctors were fighting over which one was better. I sided with Ten.
- The best prank you’ve ever played on someone?
I love telling my coworker John that he forgot about my birthday yesterday. Our birthdays are in the same month (May) but somehow he falls for it every time (about once every three or so weeks).
- Your favorite things to do when you have free time?
What’s free time? Haha kidding! I love reading a lot and decorating.
- What’s your favorite zoo animal?
A beluga whale! Actually I haven’t been to a zoo in awhile so I don’t know if they have belugas at zoos. They might just be aquarium creatures. If they’re not at the zoo then I’ll pick colorful birds.
- Broken any bones? If so, when and where [on your body]?
Luckily no and I’m actually quite terrified that I might do so someday.
- A favorite quote of yours?
“There’s a million things I haven’t done, but just you wait!” from the musical Hamilton.
- What’s the last blog post you read?
Besides the post I was tagged in to get the questions the last post I read was Stella’s What’s In My Bag post. Not only do I love what’s in my bag posts, I’m also obsessed with Stella’s blog so it all works out!
- Have you ever built a snowman?
Actually yes! I wish I had a photo but it was years and years and years ago. It was at my old house so it was at least 10 years ago but more like 15 probably.
- Are you happy with the layout/design of your blog right now?
I would say so. I do wish it was more customizable but for that I’d have to go self-hosted and that sounds like a whole new set of problems that I don’t have time for! I’d love to change more of the colors on it instead of having only the preset numbers. But I like the general layout.
And that’s the Real Neat Blog Award! I don’t really tag people anymore as I know lots of people don’t do tags and awards but if you want to do this one, I tag you! Go ahead and answer Maggie’s fun questions!
Thanks for reading!
