The Versatile Blogger Award

Dearest Runaway Nuns and Leprechauns:

A few days ago, I was having one of those, “one of them days” type of days which I incessantly rant about here.

I honestly felt like doing nothing other than drowning in a tub full of my own tears and liquid-drama. I couldn’t even get myself to write anything since last Monday, and I was feeling pressure from every angle and direction in my life. To spare you any further melodrama, i’ll fast forward to the part where I received a notification with a comment from you on the blog. And while this may sound  is super corny, my heart kinda skips a beat every time I get a like, a new comment, or a new follower. But upon reading your comment, my heart didn’t skip a beat, it stopped. You literally killed me. I was like WHAT? WHY ON EARTH!? REALLY?! NO SERIOUSLY?! THAT’S INSANE! 

I mean to be honest I’m often kind of just expecting something along the lines of:


So you can only imagine that you nominating me along with a group of other INCREDIBLE writers for the Versatile Blogger Award, hit me pretty profusely in a sensitive spot. And for sure, I made a tsunami out of what many others would label as “a light sprinkle of rain”. I’m the one who turns the “pencil-drop” into an “atomic-bombing”. But I do that. It’s just a thing I do. You know? I just overdo everything.

So THANK YOU!!!!!! For making me feel like I am worth *something* as an aspiring blogger  a nut job with a laptop.

BACK THE FUCK UP KANYE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So here are THE RULES

  1. Thank the person who nominated you. BAM! DONE! 
  2. Share 7 facts about yourself. BAM! DONE!
  3. Nominate 10 other bloggers of your choice. I really couldn’t do 10… but I can explain…
  4. Link your nominees and let them know of your nomination. This was the hardest part, if anything!


  1. Before having kids, I randomly left Miami for the first time ever, and decided BUFFALO, NY would be the ideal move. I studied hardcore Chemistry there for 2.5 years at the University at Buffalo. But the weather depressed me enough to send me running back home for good. I did not finish my chem degree and this is one my greatest regrets, which I rarely like to talk about.
  2. My fiancé/baby daddy and I met when we were 16. We were in a relationship all through high school and through my first year of college. It ended pretty badly, thus my decision to move to NY. 3 years later, we ended up together. This time for good. (He had a daughter during this gap) and here we are 9 years, and 2 other kids later.
  3. I have an issue choosing a style of handwriting. My handwriting goes from elegant, to graffiti from one sentence to the next. It’s impossible to keep track of.
  4. I believe (profoundly) in aliens & mermaids. But I’m 100 percent certain, there is no Tooth Fairy, Easter Bunny, or Santa Claus. Why didn’t anyone warn me that I would also become all 3 of those fuckers upon entering motherhood?!
  5. I’m super girly, but I’m not afraid to get dirty! One of my greatest hobbies is MUDDING! We own several ATV’s and it’s such an escape from the pressures of city life…
  6. When I grow up, I want to have a bank account with money in it. Thanks. Carry on.
  7. I absolutely LOVE storms, rainy days, lightning, thunder… something about sad weather makes me happy. It just soothes my soul.

And now I nominate… 

a few blogs that though I may be new to…have already sparked inspiration, laughter, and a will to continue to push myself as a writer.  I wanted to nominate another 3-4 of my top fave blogs, but to no surprise, you’ve all already won this award if not MANY many others and are already WP-Famous. So I chose writers that I feel i connect to/relate with, and that are well on their friggin’ ways to being WP-Famous so maybe they’ll remember the little writers later on (like me!). Hahah

Anywho, I have chosen:

The Extra Inch

How Do I Grown Up

Skinny and Single

Actual Conversations With My Husband

I’m so glad I’ve bumped into you all!  And I’m so excited to keep reading and I hope that we can all help each other grow as women, and writers!


Unapologetically Yours,

  1. Wait, what is mudding? I was imagining wrestling in mud…but you mentioned ATVs, so is it driving around in the mud!? Or is it driving out to some kind of exotic mud bath for a spa day!?

    My sister did a similar thing with her degree. She had some horrible things happen and left uni without finishing…but then, around 10 years later she used some of the credits from her first degree to get a degree in a different subject by studying with distance learning. Maybe you could do that? If you only have a few more courses to take to finish it should be doable…and then you’d have less regrets. 🙂 If you decide to give it a go, the blogging world will be behind you to support you. If you did it with distance learning you wouldn’t have to be cold in Buffalo again!

    I’ll have a peek at the blogs you mentioned too. I already love the conversations with my husband one- she cracks me up!!

    1. HAHAHA I’m over here laughing out loud at work lol!! This is awesome! So ATV’s are actually like 4-wheeled motorcycles used to ride through the mud, or rough terrain! We do this in the middle of nowhere… the “woods” whatever THAT means here in Florida lol, But I’m not even gonna sit here and LIE by saying I’ve never mud wrestled either! LOL!!!! As far as school goes-man I spent a year after that mess pulling myself together and tried transferring over but the local universities wouldn’t match my credits up enough and made it nearly IMPOSSIBLE for me to continue. Education in NY is by FAR, more advanced than it is here. So they were like wait what? Physics with calculus 2? Yea no… you’re gonna have to start all over with basic physics. Assholes. They asked me for another 3 years when I needed 1.5 to graduate from UB And that took a toll on me. Anywho I’ve since moved into the corporate surgical/healthcare scene and I’m quite fond of what I’ve become. There’s always a nagging little chemist inside of me- but ya know.. LOANS. Blah. Thank you for the encouragement and the super enjoyable comment!!

      1. Ahh, gotcha. Lols, it sounds pretty fun and scary to go mudding…but I am little sad that it doesn’t involve a spa! 😀

        Yay that you managed to get where you need without the degree. If you have a good job already it is much easier to keep the nagging chemist quiet. Plus you can always change your mind and go back to studies when you reach number 6 – the bank account with money in it! (although…then you’d go back to being like the rest of us non-functioning adults with no money.)

        Omg I am with you with the loans thing. 😦

        I always wanted to go back and do a masters but blooming ‘eck! I’d have to sell my kidneys and probably my soul, and that wouldn’t even cover the deposit. 😦

  3. Congrats! I am so proud of you on even attempting a Chem degree. I studied Health Sciences and Chemistry caused me major depression💔I re-took it and the second time went better in terms of the grade, but still sucked in terms of learning it. Thank goodness in my job I mostly only work with biology!!

    Oh and I’m super girly too😍
