30 Day Blogging Challenge: Day 21: Superpower #SocialChallenge

Filed under: Memes @ 7:00 am

Tyonne of Auri’s Closet is holding the 30 day blogging challenge.

Day 21 topic: If you could have one superpower, what would it be and what would you do with it?

TELEPORTATION!!

I mean, seriously, you can get to any place in the blink of an eye. No more traffic. No more long trips to visit family. No more not getting somewhere in time because you had to travel at regular human speeds to get somewhere. If someone was in trouble, all they have to do is call and I’d blink over there and rescue them. I could visit my parents immediately and bring them over for longer visits with me. Because I can teleport others too. Otherwise, what’s the point right? How awesome would that be people?

30 Day Blogging Challenge: Day 20: Childhood Memories #SocialChallenge

Filed under: Memes @ 7:00 am

Tyonne of Auri’s Closet is holding the 30 day blogging challenge.

Day 20 topic: Describe 3 significant memories from your childhood.

I’m not much of a memories kind of person, mainly cause my memory recycles after a few years. Seriously, I have the worst memory among my friends and family. But, there are a few bits here and there that I do remember, so I’ll share those.

I remember asking my Grandpa to make me tea. I don’t know how old I was, not very. It was my first sentence according to my family. I wanted tea, and only Grandpa knew how to make it right, the way I like it. Not too dark and served in a saucer so it would not be too hot. Yea, I was picky even at like, what, 2?

I remember being left to my own devices at a young age. I’ve always been a quiet introvert who preferred to be left alone. I learned to read at like age 4. Grandma taught me how to read and I’ve been bookish ever since. I also had a button collection and I played pretend with my buttons and no one had to pay attention to me for hours at a time.

I remember walking from elementary school by myself to the apartment we lived in. All I had to do was cross the street (with the help of a crossing guard) and walk less than a block to the building. I was a big girl and both my parents worked. I never needed supervision. Nowadays that kind of thing is a no-no. Kids had more freedom when I was growing up.

30 Day Blogging Challenge: Day 19: Where Would I Live? #SocialChallenge

Filed under: Memes @ 7:00 am

Tyonne of Auri’s Closet is holding the 30 day blogging challenge.

Day 19 topic: If you could live anywhere, where would it be and why?

Hmm this is a hard one. I live in the Houston area and that was a specific decision made between me and hubby based on what we both wanted and needed in our lives (taking work, school, political climate, etc into account). So really, I guess I already do live where I would. However, I wouldn’t mind bringing with me to Houston some of the milder weather I grew up with in California. Even the more extreme weather in NorCal is mild compared to the summers we have here in Houston. And the bugs! OMG THE BUGS. I would do away with those in a heartbeat. So… I would like to live where I live, but tweak the climate a bit. And maybe add more public transportation options since traffic just plain blows.

30 Day Blogging Challenge: Day 18: Difficult Thing to Forgive #SocialChallenge

Filed under: Memes @ 8:00 am

Tyonne of Auri’s Closet is holding the 30 day blogging challenge.

Day 18 topic: What has been the most difficult thing you have had to forgive?

Honestly I’m having a hard time answering this question. If someone really wrongs me, I would cut them out of my life. But I suppose there are quite a few things family and friends have done that hurt, but as part of being family and friends, we get past those things. I don’t really want to dwell on any of those. I just can’t think of anything especially significant or specific that I’ve had to forgive to talk about today.

30 Day Blogging Challenge: Day 17: Wish I was Great at #SocialChallenge

Filed under: Memes @ 7:00 am

Tyonne of Auri’s Closet is holding the 30 day blogging challenge.

Day 17 topic: What is the thing you most wish you were great at.

The thing I wish I was best at would be conversations and speaking to and in front of others. I’m very much an introvert. I often get shy and quiet and just let others do all the talking for me, later realizing there were smart things I could have said. But those ideas don’t come until much later and the conversation is no longer going on. Likewise, it would be great if I could give presentations, tell stories, etc, in front of others well. Hubby is really good at this and I’m proud of him for that.

30 Day Blogging Challenge: Day 16: Greatest Accomplishments #SocialChallenge

Filed under: Memes @ 7:00 am

Tyonne of Auri’s Closet is holding the 30 day blogging challenge.

Day 16 topic: What are your 5 greatest accomplishments.

1. My engineering degree. It was hard-earned for sure, took 5 years (since I switched majors in the college of engineering) and was stressful to say the least.

2. My career. My  degree helped open doors, but I guess people like me and my work to keep me around ;)

3. My home. Ok, this one is kind of interesting to include because how is a home an accomplishment, but it is! We deserve this awesome house with how hard we’ve both worked to be able to have what we have.

4. My blog – well, maybe not this one since I’m just now trying to bring it back to life ,but my other one, the book  blog chapterbreak.net. I guess it is pretty successful and we have a good following and I love interacting with our readers. I hope to get a similar following here again soon (but *hi* to the few loyal readers I still have).

5. Smurfberry. So, I think just finally agreeing/deciding to embark on this parenting journey is an accomplishment in itself, and I’m sure I’ll have plenty of small victories ahead.

30 Day Blogging Challenge: Day 15: If I were an animal #SocialChallenge

Filed under: Memes @ 7:00 am

Day 15 topic: If you were an animal, what would you be and why?

Ooh what a fun topic. I would definitely have to be some kind of large cat. Maybe a real panther, as opposed to a house panther, because they are sly and fast and pretty smart not to mention graceful and amazing to watch in action. Plus, we already know I’m part cat anyway.

30 Day Blogging Challenge: Day 14: Strengths #SocialChallenge

Filed under: Memes @ 7:00 am

Tyonne of Auri’s Closet is holding the 30 day blogging challenge.

Day 14 topic: Describe 5 strengths you have.

1. I’m organized. I mean, when I want to be and when things matter, I can be very organized. I used to be overly so, and went as far in my middle school days of having my closet color-coded. I’ve learned to relax a lot since then. :)

2. I’m loyal to my family and friends.

3. I’m intelligent, most of the time ;)

4. I want to help if I can, and I like to feel like I’ve helped and supported someone.

5. I’m dedicated to my work and my projects that I take on.

 

What are your strengths?

30 Day Blogging Challenge: Day 13: Weaknesses #SocialChallenge

Filed under: Memes @ 7:00 am

Tyonne of Auri’s Closet is holding the 30 day blogging challenge.

Day 13 topic: Describe 5 weaknesses you have.

1. Food (sweets especially). I really do like sweet foods. That isn’t to say I eat a lot of dessert, but I tend to stick to the sweeter flavors (um, chocolate) and I do tend to overeat when yummy food is available. It is something I struggle with for sure. I lost a lot of weight last year when I was being disciplined but now I’ve given myself permission to indulge my hormonal appetite heh.

2. Signing up for stuff. I find that when something sounds interesting, regardless of whether I realistically have time to participate, I sign up. Like this challenge. It is taking up a lot of my time.

3. Distractions.  I do get distracted easily these days and I find it hard to keep focused on a specific project at hand.

4. Attitude. I’m not saying I have a bad attitude, but there are times when I’m not in a good mood and mean Julie comes out and bites people’s heads off when they annoy me. So maybe don’t poke the bear ok?

5. Sometimes I cannot brain. That is a weakness for sure, when my brain refuses to cooperate and I end up putting my foot in my mouth or just coming across as dumb.

 

What are your weaknesses?

30 Day Blogging Challenge: Day 12: typical day #SocialChallenge

Filed under: Memes @ 7:00 am

Tyonne of Auri’s Closet is holding the 30 day blogging challenge.

Day 12 topic: Describe a typical day in your current life.

 A typical day is not going to be typical for very long, but let’s just go with this for now. On a work day, we get up at 6, unless either of us snoozes a bit. Do the whole get up, get dressed, you know do the whole bathroom routine. Hubby and I make and eat breakfast and feed and let out the dogs. He leaves a bit before me and I settle down to finish my breakfast and check my email and my blogs. Then I drive my 1-1.5 hour commute to work depending on traffic while listening to an aduiobook. I don’t think I could handle traffic if it wasn’t for my audiobooks. Then I’m at work putting in my 8 hours doing what I do (which is environmental compliance). At lunch I either read a book or work on blog stuff. After work I drive home my 1-1.5 hours listening to audiobooks. I typically get home before hubby for now since he works 10 hour days so I get some stuff done around the house and work on blog stuff (typically replying to emails or comments) a bit before he comes home. Then we feed the dogs and sit down to dinner and a TV show or two. Then it is time for the evening bedtime routine and sleep. Rinse and repeat on regular days. Obviously all of this will change once Smurfberry makes his appearance into the world :)
