1- I speak Spanish and English. When I speak Spanish I think in Spanish. When I speak English I think in English. Funny story. Once I went to Puerto Rico with a friend who didn’t speak Spanish. We were hanging out at a bar in Old San Juan and we met some guys. I’m sitting in between her and the guys. They say something in Spanish and I translate in to English for her. She replies in English and I translate to Spanish for them. About 3 drinks in I am repeating what they said in Spanish to her and what she said in English to them. I didn’t even realize I wasn’t switching anymore. LOL A little buzz and my ability to translate was gone. It all made sense to ME. LOL
2- My favorite color is purple. I love every shade of it. Purple makes me happy.
3- I notice the sky every single day. It’s free art from God that is always different. I remind myself to look up and appreciate the beauty surrounding me daily wherever I am.
4- When I was a teenager I had a crying bench in my room. It was an old wood toy box that I covered with pillows and a blanket. I would sit there, put on some sad music (Mariah Carey’s I don’t want to cry was a favorite) and just cry. Sometimes my best friend would come over and we would take turns sitting there and crying.
5- My favorite poem is Iyanla Vanzant’s, “Yesterday I cried” If you have never read it you totally should. I love that piece.
I really want to go back to school and be a teacher. I’m going to go back to school and be a teacher.
7- My biggest regret is not finishing college.
8- Self confidence is my Moby Dick. I work so hard at it but I can never seem to hold on to it.
9- I write erotica but I don’t write it down. Jasmine and Steve entertain me on a regular basis. I don’t know why I don’t share them with the world. One day.
10- I miss wearing make up but I don’t put it on. I love the way I look with at least eye make up on but I rarely take the time to apply it.
I am so tempted to rewrite this list in an attempt to be more interesting. LOL
I miss Dana blogging. You know I’ve always found you fascinating…right?
Awwwwww heeeey sis. *waves hard* Really? Fascinating? *blushes*
Good job lil sis.
Thank you sis. 😀
Who is this Jasmine and Steve? I need to meet them! LOL
Giggles Soon come Marshall
I love your lists sweetie! You are very talented and yes, you WILL finish college. I, too, regret not being able to finish my bachelor’s degree but gosh darn it, I don’t care if I’m 90 years of age and too senile to know why I’m walking across the stage to get my diploma and probably too crippled to boot, but I also WILL do it! And you will too because your determination shines through. And I love your comment about the sky because it is a free, beautiful canvas with ever-changing wonderful works of art every minute of every day and night. 🙂
Thank you. I kept putting it off because I work full time. I was thinking it will take me forever to finish. But time just keeps going by doesn’t it? I’m going to do it and so will you. 🙂 Thank you
We both will! Good luck in everything you do sweetie and please know that I’m sending lots and lots of good thought and hugs to you for your recent loss.
Oh my goodness, I had a brain fart, I am so, so sorry! I got my replies goofed up 😦
I again profusely apologize, I have been feeling like a horse’s patootie ever since 😦
No biggie love. It happens. Seriously don’t worry about it at all. 🙂
Thank you for you understanding, you have made me feel so much better! Have a great weekend sweetie! 😀
