The Rules

Say “Thank You” to the person who nominated you & link their blog to your post.
Answer the 10 questions given to you.
Pass the award on to 7 other bloggers and let them know they have been nominated.
Include the Award Badge in your post.

The Answers. (drum roll, please)

What made you want to start your blog?
– My friend Niles held a gun to my head and made me. No, really, he was always going on about how wonderful WordPress was. I finally decided to see what all the Niles buzz was about. I have to say, I am extremely grateful that he directed me here. The blogging community is so supportive. This is my favorite place to be on-line. People are so kind. It’s such a drama free environment

2. What have you wanted to do on your blog but haven’t yet? Why not?
– win a Nobel Peace Prize:) Honestly, I can’t think of anything. Perhaps, posting nude photos. I kid!!!!

3. Name one item on your bucket list, or more if you like?
– I would love to meet Jon Stewart. I’m a tad obsessed with him and James Purefoy.  It’s totally innocent. I just want Jon to feed me grapes while Purefoy (with his lovely British accent) recites Shakespeare.

I would also like to get my MFA in creative writing.  I already have one Masters degree, what’s one more? Oh, only a few thousands of dollars more in student loan debt. Meh.

4. What is your biggest fear
-the loss of my children. I never want to outlive them.

5. What is your best moment in life?
– the birth of my two daughters.

6. With New Years fast approaching, do you make resolutions? If so, name one. If not, why don’t you like to make them?
– I don’t. I think you should resolve to be better everyday

7. If you could host a challenge on your blog, what kind would it be?
– one to see who could pay off my student loans the fastest. 😉

8. What was the name of your first pet? What do you remember the most about them?
– it was a cat named Squirrel. In hindsight, kind of a silly name for a feline. I remember as a five year old, I thought it would be neat to see if he could swing. He couldn’t, but he was a superb clawer.

9. Did you ever go to a high school reunion? Was it fun or not?
– I went to my tenth. It was fun. I was such a nerd in high school. People were shocked by how much I had changed. Note, I’m still a nerd, I just dress better.

10. Do you have a pet peeve?
-so many but the main one- rude people. Manners matters. Kindness matters. Validation matters. It take so little to say thank you, you’re welcome, please, etc.

Now for the hard part.

  1. Yay, you got around to writing it finally. I hope you are feeling better.
    A big thank you to Niles for having pushed you to blog, we’re all the more elated thanks to his suggestion.
    I laughed at some of your answers and also thought again we really have so much in common except that I have two boys and a girl and no student loan, lol. I worked alongside my studies always so never took a student loan.
    Three cheers in advance for your MFA and lots of love and happy blogging. It sure is a very supportive and lovely community which is like a word family with ink instead of hugs and punctuation in place of smiles and kisses. I have really grown to love it and feel so close to many via this blogging world which holds pure gems like you. xoxo

  2. Big-big congratulations, Tosha!!!

    I love reading these accompanying questions because they allow others to get to know you better. For instance, I had no idea that you’re a mother of two. I also thought you were in your early-mid twenties. I think it’s very cool and admirable that you want to earn your MFA in creative writing. You go, girl!:) What did you get your first degree in, if you don’t mind me asking?
    Oh, and this should come as a total surprise (sarcasm,) but I couldn’t agree more about the value of kindness.
