Versatile Blogger Award

I’m incredibly honored to have been nominated for another blog award by Former Fish Taco Fanatic, a blogger I’ve been enjoying since starting my own blog a few months ago. I think these awards are a super fun way to give props to blogs you follow you and enjoy, and I’m grateful to be included in the conversation. 🙂

Here are the details (from the VBA blog):

If you are nominated, you’ve been awarded the Versatile Blogger award.

  •  Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
  •  Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy.
  •  Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly.
  •  Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award.
  •  Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

Without further ado, 7 fun facts about yours truly!

  1. Becoming vegan for me was sort of a whim, a challenge to myself, and I didn’t think I’d make it 2 days. Now it’s been nearly two months and I’m going strong. What’s even most surprising to me is the ease of the transition and the fact that I don’t. crave. cheese. ONE. bit. 🙂
  2. I adore beer. Craft beer, namely. Many ladies dislike beer or keep away because of the calories/carbs/fat, but damn if I can keep myself from this delicious nectar of the gods. My boyfriend and I belong to a “craft beer of the month” club and we so look forward to our new shipments! It’s like Christmas all over again.
  3. I majored in English and always thought I’d be a writer. I did write at my most previous job but the position and company weren’t for me. In my free time I (occasionally) pen poetry and I’ve been strategizing a method for knocking out a screenplay my former coworker and I used to discuss at work. It’ll happen one day!
  4. Speaking of college, I minored in French and am in love with French culture. I visited Paris on a school trip in high school and I recall it as one of my fondest memories of my adolescence.
  5. I never thought I’d say this but I work for the man. 😦 Adolescent-me would be so disappointed. My work is in the sales department of a not-for-profit–at least it’s a not-for-profit, I tell myself, but in all truth we operate like a for-profit company, as seen by the mere fact that we have a sales department. Boo.
  6. I so believe in comfort. The first thing I do when I get home is change out of my work clothes into sweats, even at 5:00 pm. I’ve always been this way. Even in college I’d come home and change into sweats immediately. Apparently normal people aren’t like this.
  7. These past few months have been the happiest of my life. I’ve struggled with some sort of (undiagnosed) depression for as long as I can remember, which was the main impetus for starting this blog: getting over myself and opening my eyes to a happy, peaceful life. So far, I’d say I’m succeeding.
