30 Days of Blog Prompts

As you may have noticed, I do not update my blog on a regular basis.  If I don't have something to say, I just don't share it.  And I think that's ok.  I blog for fun, and it's ok if I don't have 1000 followers.  That's not important to me.  I would rather have 20 people that read my blog and interact with me because you think I'm awesome, than just collect the numbers.  I also understand the bloggers that commit to blogging for whatever reason, and spend a lot of time on budgeting, advertising, giveaways, and analyzing the numbers and coming up with new avenues to increase their numbers, and the numbers are invaluable to them.  It's just not for me.  I don't have any "rules" for my blog, and right now due to not having steady employment, I cannot afford to make the beautiful quilts and other sewing projects that I have bookmarked in my folders, that someday will get done, which was the original purpose for my blog.  Actually, I like reading other blogs than updating my own.  I'm just not that cool or focused to have a Super Sweet Blog, and I'm fine with that.

Because I don't blog regularly, I wanted to commit myself to daily writings on my blog.  You can never get to know me, if I don't share about myself.  I did not make up these 30 writing prompts, but I swiped them from Sarah at the fontenot four.  I LOVE reading Sarah's blog. She is amazing.  She has two beautiful daughters, and the youngest one needs 24 hour nursing care.  The family is regularly in and out of the hospital, and that is a hard life.  I remember it, because my sister was in the hospital for most of 2011.  SO go check her out after you read the list:

INSTEAD of posting 3 posts today, I'll just continue my first day here:
DAY 1: 10 Random Facts about Myself.

1. I am 33 years old but most people think I'm under 20.  I get carded for lottery tickets.

2. I am a teenage Mom.  I got pregnant at 16 and had my beautiful daughter a month after I turned 17. Refer to #1-Strangers DO NOT believe that I have a kid.  They think she is my sister if we are together.

3, Even though I had a baby, I completed my senior year of High School and continued on to college at Eastern Michigan University.

4.  My first major was Accounting.  When I got to the "College of Business", I decided I couldn't stand all the stuck-up snooty people around me, and freaked that I would be around them forever so I changed my major.

5.  I graduated in 2006 with my Bachelor in the Science of Nursing.

6.  I passed the NCLEX on my first try.  I found it super easy.

7. I started quilting a year ago, and have finished a few tops, but I'm scared to do the actual quilting.  This is a goal I have that I want to finish before the Spring ends.

8.  My bday is in MAY!!!

9.  We have 1 dog, 2 cats and a hedgehog living in our house.

10. I'm also a substitute teacher because I took some time off from nursing when my sister was sick.

BONUS: I love to read, I love to walk in the woods, I love animals especially Owls and Octopusses, I want to make beautiful quilts, I love to laugh and make others laugh, I want to buy Modcloth.com and wear dresses every day of my life, and I want to help others that are having a hard time-no matter what it is.

SUPER BONUS: Except for last year, I go trick or treating every year with my daughter.  MEANING, I dress up and get candy! If I have to make the walk, and are lucky enough to look 16, then I'm going to take advantage of it!  Plus it's super fun.  I will find pictures to post for Day 2.
