Big Hair

Freshly washed and blow dried big hair inspires me. This is kind of weird but I'm thankful - I would never refuse some inspiration!..

Okay now, usually I wouldn't do this within this blog, since the purpose of it is pretty clear, but being all filled up with gratitude and gladness over the following, I'm giving in! So, absolutely amazing baked goodies artist (because this describes her best) Ms. Humble of Not So Humble Pie has presented me with an award and tagged me to share 10 things about myself. Let me tell you, being one of the 10 chosen bloggers out of 1462 Humble followers feels so special! I so not expected to see my name there.

10 things about me, in no particular order:

1) I was growing up knowing I wold be a singer until at 14 I realized I had absolutely no skills whatsoever. It hurt back then, I'm over it now.
2) I'm very practical and rational when it comes to falling in love and love has never been blind to me.
3) One of the nicknames given to me by the boys back in school was something in the lines of 'Miss Cold-Blooded Tranquility'... Tough, eh?
4) I like English more than Russian.
5) I don't like talking in the morning and would rather have my early breakfast in silence.
6) I'm a very physical person, touch is extremely important to me.
7) I love to learn but I don't like to study. Go figure.
8) I've had the same cell phone number ever since I got my first cell phone. Talk about being loyal!
9) I hate it when people are jealous of me, reasonably or not.
10) I'm honestly a very thankful person.

In turn, I need to tag 10 other people, but like I always add in such cases, do it only if you feel like doing it! Here's your award, guys:

  16. This was a funny post! (the blow dried hair portion)

    The singing aspiration was fascinating to me, since I just took a singing lesson yesterday. What style?

    #10 made me laugh for some reason.

    Awww, THANK YOU, Thanksgiving Girl for the tag. I noticed you put us in alphabetical order: very clever ;)

    I'll have to think about how I'd answer these questions!

  17. Haha, thanks for noticing! :)

    Wow, you took a singing lesson? How cool is that! Best of luck with it :) And I wasn't really stuck on a certain style, I just wanted to sing... I'd still love to be able to, but it's just not given to me lol

    Yes, I didn't want you guys to know who I thought of first :p


I appreciate you taking the time to connect and share your thoughts, so thank you for your comment! And while you're at it... Why not tell me what you're thankful for today? ;-)
