Wednesday Hodgepodge - 5/12

1. How many times in your life have you moved house?

     Once.  I moved from my parents' house into the house I live in now.  And that's probably for the best because I have a remarkable amount of stuff for one person.

2. What subject would you study if you had a year to devote to it?

     Photography.  I would love to be able to really know what I was doing and do it well.  Unless I meet that nice, independently wealthy man to finance this, I think I will have to stick to the "learn as I go" method.

3. What in this world breaks your heart?

      So much.  But before much else, it's anything relating to children in peril.  Whether we are talking their health, their home environment, this country or abroad--whatever--it both condenses me to mush and calls my heart to action.

4. What is one item that symbolizes the times in which we live? Why?

      The cell phone.  It's annoying, but I don't know how we functioned before we had them.

5. Share a favorite bumper sticker or t-shirt slogan.

     "Well-behaved women rarely make history."  or pretty much any shirt by The Junk Gypsy Co.

6. How do you like your spaghetti?

     In my belly!  HA!  I am a pasta fiend.  Spaghetti is a friend to the single girl who does not love to cook.  I mean, eight minutes and a little sauce and you have dinner.  Not exactly South Beach Friendly, but it works.

7. What is one piece of advice you would give a recent, or soon to be recent, graduate?

      Take a minute and really drink it all in, because this moment is really good.  But, don't be afraid of your next steps, whatever they may be.

8. I have a hair appointment next week and I can hardly contain my excitement!  It has been too long since I had this mop thinned out and colored.  (And I'm afraid it's starting to show!)


  1. Love the t-shirt : )

    Getting my hair done is one of my favorite things to youngest daughter is home and I'm treating her to highlights this week. Enjoy your salon day!

  2. So far you're the only one I've seen that's only moved 1 time!!! I can't imagine!!

    PS - we did quiet well before cell phones...we had this thing called peace and quiet and we had opportunities to lose ourselves in thought without being interrupted by something ringing, buzzing, or flashing at us!! Ah for the good old days ;-)

  3. First of all, I love your answer to #5. My students recently completed research projects, and three of my girls presented information about women's suffrage. One specifically covered the suffrage movement in England. Those ladies were radical, let me tell you! One gal even threw herself in front of the king's horse to try to grab the reins...all in the name of voting. She died on the spot.

  4. I can't imagine having just one move in my life. Wow! You get the prize for staying settled:)

    Love the slogan.


Comments make my day! Leave me one here...
