Oops. I’ve been a little preoccupied this week. I suppose it’s time to catch up.
Day 6: What is the hardest thing you have ever experienced? This is a difficult one because there are a few things tied for first place. I’m going to go with the car accident. It’s the thing that has left physical and emotional scars. I will always have titanium in my neck and some long lasting back/spine issues. I also have severe anxiety when it comes to being a passenger in a car. That day will always be forever ingrained in my memory.
Day 7: What is your dream job and why? My dream job was always to be a teacher. And I’m doing exactly that. I look forward to waking up and going to work every morning. How many people can say that?
Day 8: What are 5 passions you have?
- Knowledge. I think everyone is entitled to information. I also think that everyone should want to learn and constantly grow. Knowledge is power, people.
- Equality. Ever human being is equal to every other human being. It’s that simple.
- Spaying/Neutering your pets. Bob Barker here. Seriously, go to an animal shelter and look at all of those sad faces. There is no reason to let your pet have more babies to contribute to the problem.
- While we are on the spaying/neutering subject, people should be more proactive with birth control FFS. I used to be 100% anti abortion, but I have seen the error in my ways. That being said, I still don’t think it’s ok to use an abortion as birth control. Wear a condom, take the pill, or don’t have sex if you aren’t ready for children.
- War. What is it good for? Absolutely nothing.
Day 9: Ten people who have influenced you and describe how
- My grandmother. This woman played a huge part in raising me and she’s the one person in my life that showed me what is was like to love someone unconditionally.
- My mother. Didn’t see that one coming, did you? The question didn’t say positively influenced. She should probably be numbers 1-10. She’s the reason I don’t trust women. She has shown me a lot of “What not to-dos”. She’s also proven that blood means nothing at the end of the day.
- My father. He really stepped it up when the egg donor left. I love him dearly. He’s always been there.
- My elementary school gifted teacher. She was there when things were going haywire at home. She pushed me to be a better student. She was a shoulder to cry on. Years later we still kept in touch and she never stopped believing in me. I actually dated her son for a short period of time, that was weird.
- My ex husband. I don’t feel like that one requires much explanation.
- My best friend. I don’t know how he does it. He’s going through a divorce of his own, but he’s got a beautiful little girl thrown in the mix with the crazy ex-wife. He stays positive and gets shit done. I love him.
- My Aunt K. I used to be extremely close to her. We are definitely very similar.We both have big hearts. She has let everyone around her take advantage of that. I have seen the error in her ways and learned to not let everyone walk all over me.
- My algebra II teacher. While I always knew that I wanted to be a teacher, she was the one that made me sure I wanted to teach math.
- A dear Russian friend of mine. She has a love for life like no one I have ever seen. She moved and got married recently. I miss her.
