One Lovely Blog Award

I got another award!!

Gwen over at A Geek and her Oven awarded me the One Lovely Blog award a while back. I've just been terrible at blogging! Haha... but here I am ready to answer!!


The rules:

1. Thank the person nominating you (Thanks Gwen!!) and link back to them in your post. 
2. Share seven things about yourself.
3. Nominate fifteen or so bloggers.
4. Contact your chosen bloggers & let them know. 

Seven things about me:

1. I have never lived anywhere else. I have been living in the same building, same neighborhood, and same city for all my life. My mother never moved us around and when I got older, I never felt the need too. Still to this day I don't ever feel like leaving San Francisco. The housing situation gives me a headache but it will not defeat me.

2. I learned how to play the violin in the 3rd/4th grade. It was a free program in my elementary school and I made an announcement to my mother that I will learn the violin. I kept at it all the way to senior year but stopped. I still have my violin and sometimes will mess with it but it's now to small and the A string is broken.

3. I didn't start my college education until I was 29 years old. I'm a late bloomer but I'm totally ok with that fact. I never understood how as children we had someone make our choices for 17 years of our life and one day we wake up and we had to know what we wanted to do. Thanks. I was an 18 year kid with no idea so I just worked random jobs and traveled. 

4. I am deaf in my left ear. I went to bed and woke up with nothing. To this day I have never been able to get an explanation for the loss. I went years not telling anyone and would make an excuse if someone was talking on my left & I didn't respond. I didn't want the pity. I was 18 when it happened and to proud. I'm okay with it now. If we meet up with each other and it seems that I may be ignoring you, I'm not. Also, I'm sorry if I ask you to repeat yourself a few times. My hearing was/is too gone to have an hearing aid.

5. I love mushrooms but I hate eating them. I have an entire set of the Merry Mushroom set from the 70s, bathroom accessories, and other assortment of items but I don't like eating them. Maybe I was a mushroom in a past life. Mistah J doesn't understand. They are a food group for him. 

6. I have a fifth wisdom tooth that went no where. (It's tough coming up with facts!) I had all four pulled and when I went in to see about getting braces, they asked if I was sure I got them all out.I had to assure them that I did. That's when we discovered number 5!

7. I have never gotten a diver's licence. You just don't need on in San Francisco. If I want to buy something and can't find it locally, I can get it shipped. The public transit is pretty good in the city and there are so many buses if I need to head out somewhere in the Bay Area. I have gotten permits, I have driven around, but never made that final step. Also, I feel like I would be a terrible driver. I hate other drivers when I'm a passenger and I already have walking rage. Put me behind the actual wheel and we may have Grand Theft Auto on our hands.

Now, I'm suppose to nominate 15 people but most of the folks who's blog I read have been nominated by someone else!

This maybe be rude of me but I'm gonna leave it up to you, lovely person reading my post. Go ahead and write seven things about yourself and leave a link in the comments so I can read it!



  1. I agree with Mistah J, mushrooms are a food group. And nothing wrong with being a late bloomer. I really think it makes more sense to wait until you have a clearer idea of a career path + the money to do it + the maturity to take it seriously. Says the girl who did a 4 year degree right out of high school. :s

  2. Have you tried going to a Ear, Nose, Throat specialty doctor and having them check? I had sudden hearing loss one summer and it lasted for four months until I finally went nuts and made an appointment with the ENT who also had an audiologist working in the same practice. They found out I had an impacted ear and cleared it out and it was the most amazing feeling ever! It may be worth it just having them do a simple check-up to see what exactly might be affecting your ear.

  3. "Put me behind the actual wheel and we may have Grand Theft Auto on our hands." Haha! I feel the same way!
