Inspirational Blogger Award

I’ve taken entirely too long to do my post on this, which the wonderfully talented, funny, and amazing Mindy nominated me for. Please check out her blog here–she’s the best!! And thank you, Mindy–even though I think I’m the opposite of inspirational, it means a lot to me that you nominated me for this 🙂

Here are the rules: 

  • Thank the person who nominated you and add their link to your post
  • List the award rules so your nominees will know what to do.
  • Tell 7 hidden facts about yourself.
  • Nominate other bloggers (I broke modified this one again, sorry! I hate to put a numerical limit on these, because there are always a ton of bloggers worthy of the award, but I just do a few to make everyone’s life easier, because you know how lazy I am).
  • Contact your nominees and provide a link to your post.
  • Display the award logo on your blog.

My nominees, all of whom I think are genuinely inspirational, are:

Banishing Loans–She gives GREAT advice, resources, and ideas, not just on debt-related issues, but life in general, while being relatable, funny, and honest.

A Work in Progress–She’s wonderfully bright, imaginative, creative, and honest, and gives me hope for the youth 🙂

The Confusing Middle–He manages to be funny while addressing real-life issues, and strikes me as a good, stand up guy.

Discovering Ratchet–She’s hilarious, refreshingly true, honest, real, and always a pleasure to read!

7 facts about me you most likely don’t care to know and who could blame you because I don’t even care to know these things about myself (also I hope I’m not repeating myself):

1. If I could opt to have early-onset menopause, I would.

2. I wrote my thesis on underground Hip-Hop, was the Hip-Hop Director at a non-commercial radio station, and had a Hip-Hop radio show in college. I know the fact that I’m a white girl gives that away, but just in case you had any doubts.

3. I just. don’t. care.

4. Simultaneously I care. so. much.

5. I ruin any remotely positive things that I have going for me before they have the chance to fully manifest themselves.

6. I can’t stand it when people sign emails to me with “Best,”–it strikes me as the most disingenuous sign-off ever.

7. Similarly, there’s nothing I hate more than being told “good luck”– it’s basically like saying, “See ya! Wouldn’t wanna be ya!” or, “Geez, so glad I’m not you right now.” Nothing makes me feel utterly hopeless quite like hearing it.

Thanks for indulging me!

    And I loved rap music growing up. Run DMC being my gateway drug into the scene. It got a little much in the gansta rap era, but I still love a good Eminem and a few others these days. You know, cause Eminem is so underground. On the other hand, I’m just like you. I. just. don’t. care. and yet I do. Ugggh.

    Hip-hop? Can’t see ya doing it. However, perhaps, that should be my cue to know that you did. As for all the other things you said, do know this: you are, without a doubt, one of those bloggers who, if I could, I would love to meet and talk to for an afternoon just to see what makes you tick and how you feel about things other than menopause and oysters.
