I'd like to first and foremost thank God for blessing me with this award. I'd like to thank my mother for instilling honesty in me. I'd like to thank all members of my blog family and all those that "stroke my ego" -joined my blog- for allowing me to be honest and open with them about my life and all those things I go through. I've been blogging since Aug 28 2005 and I've never received any awards, so this means a lot to me.
The rules were for me to:
(1) Brag about the award..----Check!
(2) Choose seven blogs I find brilliant and link to them.. ---Check!
The 7 blogs I find to be brilliant and also haven't already been given this award are:
(In ABC Order)
Another Day One
(3) List 10 honest things about myself.
- I love chocolate bars, but can't stand the taste of chocolate cake.
- When I was younger, the kids I went to school with were horrible to Africans. They would say that we stink, we eat elephant, etc. So for a long time I told people I was Jamaican to hide the fact that I was African. Now, I love being African and I feel liberated knowing that we have a Black President.
- I used to be a town boy! Wore baggy jeans, sneakers, wore my hair in a pony tail and did all kinds of wild things.
- I have really big ego which translates into confidence and I come across to some people as arrogant.
- When I was younger I was a Daddy's girl and then things switched around and I'm a mommy's girl. I forget to call my dad for weeks and he lives right here in NY, but I call my mom everyday and she lives in RI.
- When I cook dinner I sit and stare at my fiance to see what his reaction will be to the food.
- I went to a different school for every grade during elementary school.
- I have a friendly relationship with my ex boyfriend that Coco Puff doesn't know about.
- I'm more insecure now about my body after losing over 60 pounds then I did when I was 230 pounds. There just wasn't any pressure then....
- I was born with a cataract in my right eye and I'm legally blind in that eye. I hardly notice it at all because I still have peripheral vision, but I'll never be able to experience seing things in 3D.
