10-4 Good Buddy: Just a fun post about nothing.

Do you feel like this year has been none stop craziness, events, and tests? I do! And it's only May! Maybe it was grad school or maybe it is the significance of this year. I don't really know. But I am looking forward to the coming months full of no homework and much less stress. To kick that off I stayed in bed until 10:30 (I am a little ashamed to admit that one) and answered questions found on Abby's blog for her 10-4 series. Click on the picture of her adorable son below to read her post and responses of many others. Enjoy! And happy reading!

1. What is one quirky thing about you?

I can not stand to hear someone make a request without following it up with "Please". My family used to call me the politeness Nazi. --Or maybe it was the grammar Nazi. That is until I started using Ebonics.-- Either way, anytime I hear someone (usually my Father) make a request with out a certain magic word, I help them out and follow up with a "please". I can't help it. It's a natural reflex.

2. What does your perfect date look like?  {Not the person...the activity} 

The perfect date that comes to mind is one I have already been on. It always must include someone that I enjoy being around and am comfortable with. We were hiking/walking around beautiful trails and paths in the hills of southern Virginia. We held hands and my date listened to me talk and talk and talk and talk about life, my ideals, and what I imagined happened in the abandon shack we came across. He was and still is such a patient man. Then we came to a swimming hole called panther falls.
We laughed and talked and hung out on the rocks. That is until my date threw me in. I was not about to take that I the man was pulled in right after me. We splashed each other and swam around for a while, until an old couple came and thought he was drowning me. It was the perfect day spending time playing and enjoying the company of someone I enjoy.

3. What is your favorite picture from last month {April}? 

This picture was taken by Tessa Cordova. I wont even start on how much I love about that woman. This was taken at my best friend's wedding. We were playing around and being silly while Tessa, the photographer, was snapping away. I love this girl and am so happy she is happy!

4. What are your top 3 favorite TV shows? 

The celebrity apprentice 
The Amazing Race
....I can't think of a third because I really don't watch much TV unless it's Sunday night and I am with my mother. Hence the two listed above.

5. What is your favorite outdoor activity?

It's a toss up between playing at the beach or hiking in beautiful mountains. I get a high from both!

6. What is the last movie you saw?   

Better off Dead....No comment. 

7. Look up from your computer right now.  What is the first thing you saw?  

I will show you. It's not too exciting.
My jewelry, temple pictures, place card from another wedding, family birthday lists, and picture.

8. What area in your life are you working on improving right now?

How much time do you have? I am trying to improve the spiritual part of my life and strengthen my relationship with the spirit and receiving revelation. Oh and I am also trying to learn patience. (Never has been my forte)

9.  What is your favorite post that you wrote last month?  

Confession: I have been a TERRIBLE blogger this year. I only wrote one post last month so it makes my decision easy. Perfect Moment Monday. It is on my personal blog. One day I may merge the two. One day. It was wonderful to take a moment away from the things I needed to do and talk to my best friend.

10. What would be your dream job?

I have my dream job! Unfortunately it doesn't go along with what I just got my degree in at all and I am taking some time off (two years) to get the hours I need to be an LCSW. My dream job: I am staging houses with the fabulous Kristi Birch, owner of Energizing Spaces. I love the instant gratification that comes from making a home beautiful!

Hello. Found your blog via the link-up. I agree, I think you have a dream job. Staging houses would be a blast! Are you working on hours for your LCSW? I graduated nearly a year ago with my degree in SW, but can not decide which direction I want to go in with it.
