My nails are kelly green, I'm decked out in Marshall Gear, and after I leave work at noon today, I'm heading down the Ohio River to Huntington, to cheer on the HERD! Tonight is Marshall vs. West Virginia University in the "Friends of Coal Bowl". Typically, I would be hostile and ready to *fight-fight-fight* for my Herd b/c I'm usually a total WVU hater, but for undisclosed reasons, I'm going to be at peace while watching this in-state rivalry for the first time in my life. Yesterday's post is a hint as to why.
This week, I wrote what I am sure will be one of my favorite posts of all time, and shipped it off to Cate for a guest post at her blog, Real Life With Kids! You have GOT to check out "My Dad is a Used Car Salesman" - 5 Things My Father Taught me about Maximizing the Value of Life - I don't get sentimental too often, so this one is SPECIAL and I promise you'll love it!
So, with that rambling jumble of thoughts about guest posting aside, you need to head over to Cate's blog - like, now! I think you'll enjoy what i've written, and I hope it inspires and/or touches you in some way.
Last but certainly not least, I would like to thank Amber @ Life on a Stick for presenting me with the lovely "Cherry On Top" Award!
I've enjoyed Amber's blog for a while now, as she's a wife, a mom to a total cutie girly girl, a nurse pursuing a graduate degree - all ingredients for an always interesting blog!
And now, to accept, I must answer the following question and of course, pass the award on.
"If you had the chance to go back and change one thing in your life, would you and what would it be?"
My Answer is that yes, I would like to go back and change one thing, which I'm thinking wouldn't have a huge effect on the way things currently are, except for my job. I would scrap the whole pre-law idea I had at the age of 18, ditch my criminal justice major/degree, and study art or journalism. Those are my true interests, but at the time, I thought they were only "hobbies" or "fun things", that I could never turn either interest into an actual career, even if i obtained a college degree. Not chasing my career dreams at the beginning of my college career is my only serious regret in life - so i'm picking up now, mid-twenties, and working a little bit each and every day toward pursuing a creative career where I can utilize my energy, creativity, and personality to benefit other folks!
And now, the lovlies that I am passing this award to:
Emily @ City Girl Can Survive
Faith @ Life, Love, & Marriage
Candy@ The Adventures of Candy Graham
Thanks again for the award, Amber! And make sure to check out my guest post today!
