Me, Myself And I Link-Up

Today I'm linking up with the Me, Myself, and I Linky Partay :)

Me, as I write this.
Yes, I am totally lying in bed on my belly.
I'm not a desktop kind of girl.
And it's 3:40am
1. What is your favorite season?

Autumn. I actually didn't realize that until I graduated college. Fall had always meant the end of vacation and the start of school and I was too busy to notice its beauty. But now I am delighted by fall. The wonderful fall smell. The leaves. The invigorating snap to the air, without being too cold. And most of all, the sky.

It's that incredible blue. Ahhhhhh, I love that blue.

2. Talk about a moment that changed your life.

It's hard to think of  a "moment" because most of my changes happened as seasons... or are blurry from trauma.

But, oh, I know! When I was laid-off from my first job after college.

It was my birthday. Four other people were also let go. I could tell my supervisor felt awful with it being my birthday, but it was from her bosses.

But what was amazing was God had prepared me. See, I had had this "I'm not supposed to be here anymore" feeling for weeks, but it was a project to project commitment job and I'd committed to it. And God wants us to honor commitments, so I felt stuck. So God, He made downsizing my birthday gift. I felt joy. Don't believe me? I posted about it the next day.

If I'd kept that job, well, my life would probably been different. It started 11 months of unemployment. But... I know God was there in my lay-off, so I don't look back with sorrow.

3. If you could be any crayola crayon color, what would you be and why?

Cerulean. It was always my favorite Crayola.

4. Describe yourself as a superhero: Superpower? Name? Sidekick?

Superpower: Hmm. As adolescent I'd have said invisibility. And I've dreamed of teleportation, especially since I could be with Ryan without worrying about money or paperwork...

But what I think I'd really like is the ability to project the emotion of my choice, so by entering a room I could bring peace and joy and love to everyone. And I'd also want part of it to be control over my own emotion. So I don't spew rage or something without meaning too. It'd be an intentional power.

Name: Hmm... The Beam? Because I'd beam emotion at people. Okay, that's lame. Suggestions?

Sidekick: Hmm... maybe a cop. Like I could walk into a robbery, calm down the robber with beams of calmness and compassion and repentence. And the cop could arrest them.

5. If you had all the money in the world and could only shop at 3 stores, where would you shop?

Hmmm... well I don't know what stores they have in India, and since I'm moving there soon it'd suck to pick American stores and not be able to buy anything in India!


  1. hi there! I saw your blog on GFC blog hop and I'm now following you! I hope you follow my blogs as well... cheers!


  2. These are some really nice responses for those questions. My favorite season would be Christmas just for the joy and family time it brings.
    I am following you now and look forward to your next post. I would love for you to follow back.

  3. Stopping by from the link up! You have some really well thought out answers, I like the stipulation you put on your emotion controlling superpower. And I used to LOVE cerulean too! :)


  4. That's my favourite crayon colour too. I used to hoarde them at school and then get told off for not sharing that colour. I found you via the GFC bloghop, hope you'll follow back :o)

  5. I'm a new follower from the GFC hop!

    So you're moving to India? What part? My parents have been living in Mumbai for the past two years. I got to go visit them this summer and it was one incredible experience! Good luck with your move!

  6. Newest follower here! I found you through the Sunday link up! Cute blog, I can’t wait to read more!

  7. I hardly ever sit at my desk with my laptop either :)
    Also, I love that crayon colour, though I think I'd be a purple one. :D
    Dropping by from the GFC blog hop. :)
