Writing brings me a lot of peace and satisfaction. I’m relatively new to the blogosphere and I’m really grateful that some people have discovered my story. Especially the 2 bloggers who nominated me for these little tokens. And Elly, who also nominated me and I didn’t realize was following, but probably didn’t know I’ve been loving her blog for quite some time too.
These badges mean that I must
a) Link back to those who nominated me
b) Tell you 7 things about me
c) Nominate a bunch of other great bloggers
1. I believe everything happens for a reason.
2. I eat chocolate everyday.
3. I have a weakness for sequins. I want them. All of them.
4. I want to marry Jason Segel. I just feel like we’d get along, and that he’d like hanging out with me too.
5. I hate diet-talk with a fervent passion I usually reserve only for paper cuts, Nickelback, and my father.
6. I’m on the market for a pet hedgehog.
7. I love reading and I love poetry. Good books and poems can be better company than some people.
8. My sister and my mom are my best friends.
You may have noticed those were eight things about me, but seven is a horribly uneven, prime number and eight is just better.
To keep the chain going, I recommend 13 blogs that I can’t get enough of. I read these blogs all the time and you should too:
