Life is Good

Man, this is my weekend! I received another award today! Granted, it was from my Dad and he may be a little biased but I'll take it. Dad is super funny and has a great outlook on life. If you haven't already, stop what you are doing and go take a look. I'll wait.

Back? Ok. Where were we? Ah, yes, the award.

Yes, Life is definitely good.

There are rules to this award.

1. First, thank and link back to the person that gave the award.(Check)
2. Answer the 10 survey questions
3. Pass the award along to other bloggers whom you think are fantastic.
4. Contact the bloggers you have chosen to let them know about the award

1.  If you blog anonymously, are you happy doing this?  If you aren't anonymous, do you wish you started out anonymously, so that you could be anonymous now?  I am anonymous for the most part. Only a few of my friends and family members know of Jumble Mash. I like it that way mostly, but sometimes I wish I would just tell everyone. I'd love to just post on my Facebook about new blog posts. Maybe some day.

2.  Describe an incident that shows your inner stubborn side.  I don't think I really hide my stubbornness and there are probably a lot of incidents that prove that, but one thing that really sticks out is that I always have to have the last word in an argument. 

3.  What do you see when you really look at yourself in the mirror?  I normally like what I see. I mean, I wish I still looked like I did in high school...but I'm comfortable in my skin for the most part.
4.  What is your favourite summer cold drink?  Sweet Tea Vodka and Lemonade
5.  When you take time for yourself, what do you do?  Blog, play Xbox, read, play video games, play on my iPad, take hot baths, nap, and shop.
6.  Is there something that you still want to accomplish in your life? There are a ton of things I still want to accomplish. But my goal at the moment is to finish getting my degree.
7.  When you attended school, were you the class clown, the class overachiever, the shy person, or always ditching? Hmm, I was never an overachiever or a class clown, but I wasn't shy either. So I'd say just an average student? I don't know. I did ditch a lot my senior year, but then again so did almost every senior.
8.  If you close your eyes and want to visualize a very poignant moment in your life, what would you see?  Um I don't really know. I may have to think about this one for a while.
9.  Is it easy for you to share your true self in your blog, or are you more comfortable writing posts about other people and events?  I have no problem sharing my true self. I don't exactly wear my heart on my sleeve, but all in all I'm a pretty open person.
10.  If you had the choice to sit down and read a book or talk on the phone, which would you do and why?  Read a book for sure. I normally dread talking on the phone. 

Now to pass it on. I don't know how many I'm supposed to choose so I'll just pick a random number.

I hate talking on the phone, too, and yet people insist on calling me. Go figure.

Congrats on the award! Check my latest post for a little something for yourself. ;)

Congratulations on the award!! Life definitely is good! Talking on the phone is tiresome, I would also prefer reading.

Woop Woop, I've got an Award!! I'm thrilled to bits, so thank you for that Jumble. Strangely enough, there's an Award on its way to you from me in a couple of days (I've got a few posts already drafted, which is most unusual for me!!,) so watch out for it.

Bubbles said...

I like the concept of this award, great to learn more about you and woo passed it on to me!!! said...

Jumblemash I came via your Dad's blog and via Bouncin'Barb before that. Congratulations on the award having nosed about your blog I see it is justly deserved. I noticed to that you've forwarded it to Thisisme - I love her blog and only discovered it recently.
Great to meet you. I've joined your merry band and am your latest follower.
Do please drop by and maybe follow me if you wish I'd be delighted to welcome you.
Warm wishes from
Carol - Warning I am a vision of the future.

Bouncin' Barb said...

JM, your blog is a joy. I love your honesty and I knew Dad would pass it on to you. Great that you forwarded it on to the others. They all deserve it. Loved your answers and look forward to every post you put up. Hugs!!

becca said...

aw thank you sweetie you totally rock and love the post the questions are very good.

Amy said...

I'm the same way about my blog - I don't like that if it goes on FB then everyone will know - there is no stopping it at that point and then I feel like I will have to be discrete because I don't want everyone in my small town to know about me. We are the exact same way in our discreteness. It's funny I've never seen that question posed on blogs before and added it in my challenge questions for tomorrow and then I saw it here today! too funny!

congrats! that's a great award - even if it did come from your dad!
i love your survey answers. they allow us to see "more" of you. Never heard of "sweet tea vodka and lemonade." is that a mix or a bottle that you can buy?

Corey said...

Tress said...

Thanks everyone!! You guys are the best.

SkippyMom said...

You are so sweet Jumble. Thank you. It is fun to read the answers and get to know you better. I have no idea what to answer. Will have to think about it.

Hope you are having a great weekend.

Eek, eek, eek! Thank you so much for the Award JM, what a wonderful way to end the weekend. Now I will have to do justice to it and put my thinking cap on.

Great news about the award, I think it's sweet that your dad gave it to you. The questions were different, and I enjoyed reading them.
I've been following you for a while, but I don't know if you're aware of my blog, so here it is

christi said...

Fun getting to know you! I'm not a phone person either!

I did the whole "senior skip" thing too. Pretty sure I had like 30 absences my senior year.
