The Real Neat Blog Award

WHOA NELLY! From starting this blog on a whim to relate my ridiculous thoughts that I know others have to be thinking at some point in their day, would I have ever thought that someone would read this nonsense, let alone nominate me for an AWESOME award! I want to recognize thetrenzznetwork for nominating me for this award! I highly recommend you run, don’t walk, over to her page for a plethora of great content!

Now for the good shit! Selling my soul, and responding to the questions I have been provided. Let’s get down and dirty readers!

What is the bravest thing you have done?

Wow, coming in hot with a tough question! I wouldn’t necessarily peg someone who calls herself a grandma at the mere age of 25 brave. There really isn’t an instance that comes to mind where I would have considered myself brave. I guess I could say starting this blog was a moment of bravery for me. I have always been the quiet one growing up, kind of living out the motto of keep your head down and maybe no one will realize you’re here kind of lifestyle. Starting a blog has always been something on my bucket list of things to do, and mustering up the courage to write my truest thoughts out online for the world to criticize was one of my bigger acts of bravery, but I suppose it is working out for me! I will also say, I bravely killed a very large spider that showed up on my door all on my own the other day, and I am TERRIFIED of spiders!

If you didn’t have to work to make money, what would you do instead?

Now you’re speaking my love language. I love me a good day off of work! I recently found myself living out my creativity though my Cricut craft making machine. I would probably spend my days creating an endless supply of punny, inspirational, wooden signs, along with spending my evenings by a nice campfire with a glass of wine in one hand, and a s’more in the other.

What is the most difficult thing you have overcome?

Oh goodness, I have been very fortunate in my short 25 years on earth to have had a pretty generic life with not much noted difficulty. I will say that finishing a 6 year college Master’s degree within a 5 and a half year time span was not the easiest experience. While being a full time college student, working weekends for gas, grocery, and drinking money, you can imagine that brings out quite a bit of anxiety and stress on a kid.

What is the weirdest realization you have ever had?

The weirdest realization that I actually recently heard, literally blew my damn mind. So, like you and I, well I hope you! I watched an entire video of a guy explaining that he does not have an internal monologue. Like what?! I talk to myself in my mind all day every day! How in the world do these people stop themselves from saying “What the f*ck” out loud every time it needs to be said if they can’t say it internally?? I swear, I am not making this up, I watched an entire video on this, look it up!

What is the newest thing you have learned about yourself?

Having the last 4 months of being forced to slow my life down due to COVID, I have really had the time to truly look at myself as a whole. One of the newest realizations I have had with myself is the fact that I work extremely well under stress. I work efficiently, and handle multitasking on many different things at one time. That being said, I have also learned of the importance of taking time for self-care. Although I am awesome at being a stress ball in a perfectly timely, planned out manner, I am slowing learning the importance of taking care of myself (not just over my summer vacation). I highly recommend you all also slap on a face mask, get some fresh air, and a bottle of wine.

What is the most ridiculous you have ever heard?

As a professional working with students with special needs, as well as being a person who has spent the majority of their lives working with and taking care of people with special needs. One of the most ridiculous things I have ever heard is that those with special needs can not do all of the things that you and I can. This is in fact not true. Although those who have special needs may have obstacles that make a simple task more challenging than it may be for you and I, with a little extra time, help, and encouragement they’re just as capable as any one of us. This is something that I think not everyone understands. This is absolutely a cliche, but before you assume, don’t judge a book by its cover.

What on earth are you particularly grateful for?

I am absolutely grateful for the standard answer that most people reply with when asked what they’re grateful for. I have awesome parents who have supported me my entire life, a good relationship with my brother, a wonderful Fiance, and the most perfect puppers who deserves all the toys in the world. Although one random thing that I am extremely grateful for is the fact that my parents taught me how to handle my money responsibly. From the time I started my first terrible high school job at good ol McDonalds, I had to, against my own free will, put part of my pay check into my savings account, but I couldn’t thank my parents enough for making me do so. My mom (against my dads knowledge) supported me getting a credit card in college to build some credit.

  3. Woah woah woah, there’s a guy out there in the world who doesn’t have an inner monologue?? That’s crazy. So do they not stay awake at night running through random scenarios in their head? They just fall asleep? I’m going to have to look this video up. I already know I’m going to spend all of tomorrow having an inner monologue about how this isn’t possible.
