The Versatile Blogger Award

A New York Minute graciously nominated me for The Versatile Blogger Award–thank you so much, I’m truly flattered and honored! And it has taken me entirely too long to write my post on it, so please forgive my slowness. And everyone reading this, please check out their wonderfully witty blog if you haven’t already! 14

The rules for The Versatile Blogger Award are:

1. Thank the person who gave you this award.

2. Include a link to their blog.

3. Select blogs/bloggers that you follow and love and nominate them for The Versatile Blogger Award. (*I amended this rule in the name of laziness making my life and the lives of my nominees easier, sorry! Sorry I’m not sorry?)

4. Tell 7 things about yourself.

While there are tons more blogs worthy of this award, for laziness’ simplicity’s sake, here are my 3 nominees in no particular order:

1. Ben’s Bitter Blog

2. AmuseMyselfMusings

3. the story enthusiast

Here are the 7 things about myself you probably DGAF about:

1. I LOVE coconut–anything coconut flavored, I will eat or drink happily. You could date rape me–so long as you throw some Malibu in that drink, we’re good to go.

2. I firmly believe that “I can’t” is a real thing–it just seems obvious and makes total sense to me and frankly I don’t get people who don’t get it. I say it at least 15 times a day to no one in particular.

3. I’ve never been punched in the face and would really like to be, just so I know what it feels like. And so I could sport a black eye and be able to use it as a conversation piece/writing prompt (like come up with inventive stories about how I got it). Unfortunately all of the guys I’ve dated have refused to do it.

4. I feel confident that I never know what I’m doing ever in any situation in life ever at all.

5. There’s no one I hate more than a person who won’t jaywalk when there’s ABSOLUTELY NO REASON IN THE WORLD NOT TO. THERE ARE NO CARS COMING. FUCKING WALK. I WILL LEAVE YOU BEHIND. YOU KNOW HOW PEOPLE IN THE ARMY OR WHATEVER SAY “NO MAN LEFT BEHIND”? I DO NOT BELIEVE IN THAT.

6. I find it really hard to come up with things to tell about myself when prompted like this (HEY-O, see what I just did there?!).

7. My mom recently ran into the mom of a girl I used to play soccer with. This other mom apparently told my mom that I was the only girl on the team who was nice to her daughter. I was surprised to hear this, because I don’t recall being aware of that, or feeling like I had to be extra nice to the girl to compensate for everyone else being mean to her, or anything like that. To me, she was just my friend and I liked her. It was a nice reminder that we don’t know the impact we’re really having on others, and even the ‘acts of kindness’ that we think are a given have the potential to have a much larger, more positive impact than we’d ever guess.
