Sept 12: Toy story

What was your favorite plaything as a child? Do you see any connection between your life now and your favorite childhood toy? Just like most girls, I played with Barbie dolls. They were a staple toy for girls and I got them as presents from my parents. I was lucky enough to have about 4…

Sept 4: I am a rock

Is it easy for you to ask for help when you need it, or do you prefer to rely only on yourself? Why? I am definitely a rock. I have always been independent, so I hate relying on other people for anything. I just hate the feeling of bothering someone no matter how big or…

Aug 30: A little sneaky

Are writing prompts a useful exercise, or do you find them to be too limiting and/or hokey? I do think that it is a useful exercise. I started doing these writing prompts because I want to write more and post more on this blog. But you know, sometimes, there is just nothing to write about….

Aug 24: These boots were made for walkin’

Tell us about your favorite pair of shoes, and where they’ve taken you. I’m going to deviate a little bit from the question and just talk about my favorite pairs of shoes! I have never talked about shoes on this blog before. I remember doing something like this when I was on Multiply and that…

When you were 10, what did you want to be when you grew up? What are you now? Are the two connected? I remember that whenever I get to this question on slum books when I was in grade school, I would answer “businesswoman”. I guess that was the easiest answer I could come up…

Aug 2: Origin Story

Why did you start your blog? Is that still why you blog, or has your site gone in a different direction than you’d planned? Man, this will be a long story because I have gone from blog to blog to blog to blog to blog. And I’m totally exposing myself today. LOL. I started my…

Jul 29: State of My Year

Write up a mid-year “State of My Year” post. It’s July 29th. It is my mother’s 64th birthday. And today, I will be doing a State of My Year address. This year sucks ass. It actually started out great for me. My social calendar was thriving, I was doing OTs and earning more money than…
