The Batty Broad loves awards of any kind. The other day I discovered that I have saved all of my ribbons from cheerleading camp, which are completely useless but clearly point out that I was coordinated at one time in my life. So it was pretty exciting to receive the Versatile Blogger Award from Erin from Analyfe! Read her blog. She’s pithy, smart, interesting and inspiring.
So, here are the rules of the game:
- Thank the person who gave you the award and link the blog back to them
- Tell us 7 things about yourself
- Pass the award to 7 bloggers
- Contact the bloggers to let them know they’ve received the award
You’re not obligated to pass this along but don’t break the chain, man!
7 things about the Batty Broad:
1. I refuse to associate with people who have no sense of humor. Life is challenging and if you can’t laugh at yourself and each other, why go on?
2. I have moved 28 times in my life. I don’t recommend it. It does however ensure that you don’t keep a lot of unnecessary junk. I mean after you have moved your sports trophies a few times, the garbage can seems like a fitting final resting place.
3. I have a deep abiding passion for books. I am fairly certain that I would not have survived my childhood without access to a library. Even though I would spend every hour of my day reading and learning if I could, I don’t have a lot of books (see fact #2). My dream would be to have a library in my house.
4. I’m the person you want to tell your problems to. Everyone does, even strangers. I don’t have an agenda or feel that it is necessary to place any judgement on people, so I think they feel open to talking to me. We are all struggling and trying our best and having someone who is really able to listen and provide objective, non-judgmental feedback is something we all need.
5. I will never ceased to be amazed at the effect music has on me. Music should be one of the major food groups. I could live without many things but music is not one of them. It’s like air to me.
6. The older I get, the more I realize that I am less certain of what I know all the time. I think everyone, should ask themselves everyday – but what if that isn’t true? I mean at least consider the possibility. We spend so much time looking at things in a single direction, that we don’t even realize there is more to the story then we ever imagined.
7. I’m going to leave #7 open so that you can ask me a question. I like Erin’s idea about this…so have at it!
