versatile-bloggerThis was such a lovely – and timely – Christmas present! I say “timely” because I was just counting my blessings this holiday season that, between my PR courses and this blog, I get to spend every day doing something I love.

Thank you, Ambitious Poet, for thinking of me for this award! It’s always a wonderful thing to know that somebody enjoys reading my blog as much as I enjoy writing it.

Now down to business.  According to the rules, I must now make you all aware of seven things about me:

  1. I believe in extraterrestrial life. I do. Not necessarily the little-green-men-in-flying-saucers type of life.  I just think that it’s more impossible to imagine that in the vastness of space, we are the only planet able to sustain life.
  2. I failed the written test for my driving learners’ permit three times.  I still maintain that a driver who makes sure everyone in the car is wearing a seatbelt is the best answer.
  3. I can’t roll my “r’s”, like how some people can when they say things like “Arriba!”. The catch is that French is my second language and rolling r’s is pretty key, so I kind of just learned to emulate the sound by doing interesting things with my vocal cords.
  4. As an only child, I had to create my own fun when I was little. My solution was to dream up an imaginary boyfriend, Peter. I remember telling my mom once that he didn’t have a job, so she told me to dump him.  I did.
  5. I was traumatized by a swim instructor when I was five which resulted in me being terrified to put my face in any water for about another five years. To this day, I don’t so much put my face under the shower head as cup a handful of water and throw it at myself.
  6. I completely believe in karma. What you do will come back to you, so don’t be a dick!
  7. I may have inappropriate reactions to movie deaths. If a teenager in a slasher film gets axed I barely blink, but if someone tries to shoot an animal I cover my eyes until I think it’s over.
