Beautiful Blogger Award

And here you all thought today would be a meaty post filled with fresh insights, witty anecdotes and a touch of sarcastic asides after I managed to shirk my blogging duties yesterday by posting about my award, aka taking the easy way out.

Well, if I ever do achieve any of those things on a normal day, I have to apologize and ask you to give me one more day of self-indulgence. Furthermore, I have to thank the lovely Katherine Anne at Medical School Mrs. for thinking of me!

The rules of this one are:

1. Thank the person who gave you the award
2. Paste the award on your blog
3. Link back to the person who gave you the award
4. Share seven interesting things about yourself
5. Nominate up to 7 more beautiful bloggers
6. Link the seven bloggers you nominate
7. Shouldn't there be a seventh rule? There's seven everything-elses. Oh well.

Seven Beautiful Bloggers:

1. J. at Kissing Frogs
2. Jessica B. at Everyday Adventures of Me in the City
3. Stephany at Stephany Writes
4. CJR at Girl v. The World
5. Date Girl at Date Girl Diaries
6. Melissa at Duoly Noted
7. Melissa at So About What I Said...

Now I think I'm supposed to list seven interesting things about me. Maybe that was the seventh rule. That would make a lot of sense.

Seven Interesting Things About Me:

1. I am adopted; the papers didn't officially go through until I was 16! Though I've been living with my adoptive family since I was about 12.

2. I was the sports editor for my college newspaper and have often thought about going into sports journalism; I know I could hold my own out there with the boys.

3. I had never been to New York City until the age of 20 (or, two weeks ago!), and still have never been to Disney World or anywhere in any other continent besides London.

4. I am absolutely clinically diagnosably panic-attack ridden and anxiety stricken about flying. I hyperventilate, cry, shake, vomit, and sometimes do all of the above when I fly. Incidentally, I am also flying four times (so far) in the upcoming year...

5. I am not, however, in the least afraid of sharks (I love them and have been swimming with them), snakes, clowns, public speaking, dogs, rodents, or thunder and lightning.

6. I am, however, afraid of probably everything else.

7. I got my first pedicure at the age of 19. ...But now I am utterly addicted.


  1. you are beautiful :) and so is your blog

  2. I can totally relate to #7. I didnt get my first pedi until I was 25 and now I wont even touch my own toes :)

  3. Ooh, thanks for the award! Also, I think you would be GREAT at sports writing! You have such a great, funny writing style!

  4. Ahh thanks Stephany! That made my whole day =)

    And, since tonight I tried to book my seat to take the GRE and found how how much it will cost/how much of a pain it will be, maybe I'll look more closely at writing as a career goal...
