We Want to Know...

I copied this WWTK from Ramblings of a 30-Something Year Old Carolina Girl ...

1. Everyone seems to have a quirky family situation, what is something unique
about your family dynamic?

I have a plethora of cousins on both sides of my family; however, I’m closest to my mother’s side. Although we don’t get to see each other often (most of them live in So Cal), my immediate family and I try our very best to see everyone when we go down to the valley to visit. Some funny moments occurred during our April trip to San Diego for my niece’s wedding. Within a 2-day span, about 20 of us gathered in my aunt’s hotel room to chat. I hope the other hotel guests didn’t think we were being too loud, but we were having a great time!

2.What is the most stressful aspect to blogging?

Not knowing what to write about. Sometimes I don’t have a topic in mind, so I’ll just rant or rave about something that’s going on in my life.

3. We all end up on a blog at some point in our day, but name your top 3 favorite websites you flock to daily. (Non-blog)

*Note: I'm slowly trying to wean myself off one or two of these websites, but it's difficult sometimes.

4. What's your sign? Believe in it or not does any of it ring true for you?

I’m on the cusp of Scorpio/Sagittarius. I don’t base my life around this, but I do believe I possess some traits that are associated with both signs.

5. Ice cream Ice cream, we all scream for ice cream!!! Name your
favorite flavor!

Häagen-Dazs Chocolate. Yeah, just call me a Plain Jane! ;-)

I Think About You In The Summertime...

No, the above title isn't in reference to the NKOTB song that was released in 2008. Actually, it's in reference to the fact that I am now officially on summer vacation! :-)

I took my last final exam two weeks ago and I feel so happy! I received two 'B's' in two courses and now I'm just waiting to find out what grade I received in my third course.

In other news, I think I've seriously lost my motivation. My intention was to do some spring cleaning during my break, but I think I've only accomplished two days worth of work. UGH!! And my writing is also at a standstill. I've seriously been thinking of creating another blog, which would focus more on my writing and the stories, and articles I've written & had published. However, the idea is on hold for a bit until I can do more research on what it would take to get this new blog more attention. Anyway, I need to get moving and start putting my plans into action!

Lastly, I can't believe summer begins in 20 days. Nonetheless, the last few days haven't felt anywhere close to summer. We've been experiencing rain showers & some cold temperatures. In fact, I think some call this earthquake weather. :-( Speaking of earthquakes, we had one earlier in the week, which registered 3.7 on the Richter scale. It shook me a little, but you would think I'd be used to them by now. Nonetheless, they are so far and few between. Oh, and on the same day we had the earthquake, I saw snowflake showers a few hours later. Go figure! Anyway, we've had some weird weather this year and I think it's all due to "La Niña."

Until next time!
