I've been tagged...

So our delicious crockpot dinner last night will have to wait until tomorrow. Contain your suspense.

Debra has tagged me in a grown-up game of tag/self esteem boost in one.


Here are the rules:

1) Write 3 things about myself I like
2) Tag 3 more people
3) Go on in peace

Hardest part for me? The going on in peace. I'm the girl who lies in shavasha at the end of yoga thinking about her grocery list. I don't do peaceful very well! Here goes:

1) I am motivated. Maybe a bit too motivated! I took every school class/project to the limit - think back to the volcano project which could have been a simple spewing volcano, which I made into a lean, mean, toy burning machine. My career is of great importance to me, as is finding a job which fits my personality and strengths. Working out - you may call me crazy, I call myself motivated! So it could be motivation driven by ADHD - but nonetheless, motivation!

2) I can get-er-done! I am a decision maker. I do not sit and dwell, consider every paint color for a wall for 6 years, wait to see what others will do, or wait to see if someone else will get something done. I do it. I seize opportunities and I get-er-done. Again, this may be attributed to my ADHD, or, as I like to think of it, I am a project 'completer'. If you want something done, and you don't want to question whether it will REALLY be done...give it to me. I promise, you won't think about it again. And I think that is pretty darn good.

3) I can be funny. Once in a while. Humor cures all wounds, and crosses all divides. If you don't know what to say, or don't know how to react, you usually can't go wrong by making someone laugh. Lighten the mood - keep people smiling! Do you remember superlatives in the yearbook? Well in middle school I was declared 'funniest' in the 6th grade year book. Let me tell you, to this day, that is one of most important things to me. Middle school, right? Who cares, funny means you tell potty jokes. Whatever, that means my potty jokes must have been pretty darn funny!


Now go on in peace. I'll try. Really. But I can't promise anything.

Now it's time for me to tag 3 others! None of you have blogs (I reccomend you change that), so just comment on mine - or email it - and tag 3 others.

Sara Bongers, Stacy Ta-ta's, Robyn, Liz Edlavitch....

So I've been tagged huh. Ok here goes three things I like about myself:

1. I am a really good friend. I'm not kidding I'm the type that once you are my friend I will do anything for you. Call me at 2am, ask me to watch your dog, vent about your bad day, have me drive with you from Boston to Austin, I'll do just about anything for someone I care about.

2. I can laugh at myself. Seriously sometimes I say and do silly and stupid things but I'm the first one to laugh at myself. For example my friends were once discussing change and I said we'll I'm good with change I used to work in a bank. They weren't talking about coins in someone's pocket they were talking about the other kind of change. I thought it was the funniest thing ever, so much so that I've not shared that story with everyone who reads Kara's blog.

3. I can be introverted or extraverted. Seriously I take that Myers Briggs test and depending on my mood I can score either way. It kind comes is handy. I know how to be quiet when I need to buckle down and get things done. On the other hand I can be friendly and outgoing in social situations (see #1). So I'm happy doing errands on my own or going shopping in a big group. I don't need to have people around me all the time but sometime I love having a big group and talking to lots of people.

Ok my turn I guess..
1. I love that I love myself (and not and the annoying narcissistic way). I accept who I am, faults and all and live each day trying to make myself and the world a little better.

2. I love that I have some how won over some really great friends (a la Kara :) ) who I would do anything for and who would do anything for me. I love that whether we're able to get together every week, or only once in a while, we can still catch up and connect just the same.

3. I love that I'm going to do something with my life that will rarely be easy or simple, and surely not as financially rewarding as other paths, but that I'm committed to it just the same.
