While blog surfing today, in order to increas my blog traffic, and in search of something new and interesting I found something! Thanks to Gwynne I have discovered the blog meme.
1. What purpose do you think God has for you on earth?
I really wish I knew, because I would work arduously at fullfilling it; however, as I do not know, I will take it all one step at a time until my purpose is revealed.
2. What do you love most about yourself and why?
The traits I love most about myself are my independence [both financially and emotionally]; If we are talking about physical traits that I love the most about myself, they would have to be my legs and my voice [although that is not so physical].
3. What issue - social, political or anything else - is most likely to make you get up on your soapbox?
There are a couple actually. Anything that has to do with racial excuses, welfare, education, and the social dehumanizing of the "big girl" will have me up in arms with closed fists ready to fight [well not fight really because I don't know how to, but I'll definately bring out the polysyllabic words!]. I really hate when people talk about the pathology as opposed to just saying "I have the power to make a decision and affect my own outcome."
4. Have you ever had an experience which made it clear to you that your angels are looking after you?
Absolutely. My grandmother died 5 days before my sophomore semester finals were supposed to start. That semester I attended classes from 8a.m. to 12noon, and I worked from 1:00pm to 11:00pm 5 days a week, and then studying Calc and Physics at IHOP from about 11:30pm to 2:00am on average everyday for an entire semester. I was living off of Red Bulls, and coke, and IHOP pancakes basically [ I grocery shopped but only really had time to cook on weekends]. Well when my grandmother died, I spent that last week of classes in my home town attending mournnig services and spending time with my family while studying for my upcoming finals. The semester had completely exhausted me, and on my way back to San Antonio the morning of one of my finals my tire went out in a very racist town in between Houston and San Antonio. I fixed it on the side of the road, but as I had been sleep deprived, I still found it hard to stay awake, and after I returned to the road, a few miles into San Antonio, I fell asleep behind the wheel, and drove clean off of the highway onto the grassy area inbetween 10W and 10E. I ended up right next to 10W facing E. I cried and realized that the degree after which I was seeking so diligently would be worthless if I killed myself in the process of getting it. I thanked God that falling asleep and driving off the freeway into the other side of the traffic didnt kill me. I took my finals, and scored very well on them, and I transfered back to a less financially stressful university in Houston. I am glad my angels were watching over me because my family wouldn't have been able to handle loosing both me and my grandmother in less than a week's time.
5. How did Jesus become your Savior?
I've been told stories of Jesus since my own inception. I'd known of Jesus from birth and He was as important to me as air in the respect that I've always had it so I never really thought of what life would be like without him. However, it was not until I moved out on my own and developed a relationship with a God I'd come to seek, not my parents' God [well same God but I feel he has a different purpose in my life] did I see Jesus as my Savior. His story, while far out and hardly plausible, made sense to me, so I accepted it.
1. Did you have an allowance as a child? If so, how much was it? What did you spend it on?
Well, from what I remember, I received an allowance of $20 a week from the time I was like 7 to about hmm I can't remember. It went up once I got my car at 16 and had to start paying for gas. Then I got a job and "allowance? what allowance?" I didn't really spend my money on too much. I'd tithe 10% to church. Save 20% and then loan shark out the rest for with interest!2. What song do you hate the most? Why?
My least favorite song right now is Fantasia's Free Yourself. While I have nothing against Fantasia [hence her song title as a part of my blog title] this song and Baby Momma are just rediculous. She really needs to ask Simon if someone can write her better choruses.3. List the 10 best things about being you.
I am single; I am saved; I live on my own; I have a good job; I work with all guys; I'm very good with math/money/numbers; I am not sick; I have loyal friends and a loving family; I've only been hurt once;... oh that was 10 right?4. What is your reason for getting out of bed each morning?
Wow, what a great question. As sick as it sounds, my main reason for getting out of bed every morning is work. I truly enjoy it. I look forward to it everyday. Other than that, I kinda just get up to look forward to whatever new thing comes my way. I also look forward to reading my daily devotional by Joel Osteen; it is really starting to help me get my priorities straight.5. Tell one thing about yourself that nobody knows.
If given the opportunity, I would like to either rewind my life back to tenth grade, and make some different decisions; or fast forward ten years to see where I would be then; and if I was not happy with the fast forward versionthe I would definately want to rewind to tenth grade and make a few different choices.As per the rules:
Other than that I um speak English backwards fluently, and I was a contestant on Family Feud (and we lost).
