The Versatile Blogger Award

I first want to begin by thanking Catherine for nominating me for the Versatile Blogger Award. She not only posts great book reviews on her blog but many amazing bookish things. Her most recent posts include Aesthetically Pleasing Character Mood Boards | Simon vs. The Homosapiens Agenda. You should go check out her blog!

Now, let’s continue…shall we?

The Rules

  • If you are nominated, you’ve been awarded the Versatile Blogger Award
  • Thank the person who gave you this award
  • Include a link to their blog
  • Select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly
  • Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award
  • Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself

I know…I know…you are waiting to read my 7 things. Well, let’s get to it then. I cannot guarantee you will find them interesting, but it is a lot more difficult to come up with 7 interesting things about yourself than you think.

  1. I recently finished my second Bachelor’s degree. I now hold a B.S. in Criminal Justice with minors in Forensics and Sociology as well as a B.S. in Biology and Sociology with a minor in Chemistry. I did microbiology research analyzing the bacterial growth from mouse fecal samples. Fun summer research haha.
  2. I am a mom of two beautiful boys monsters. I am joking, I love my boys. They are 6 and 1.5 years old. Both are super smart, making me proud every day.
  3. When I walk on a sidewalk, I always take an even number of steps in each square. Not sure why, but odd numbers bother me, with the exception of 5.
  4. Building off of my last one…my plates have a lined pattern, one end brown and the other orange, I have to have them all facing the same direction. I line them all up properly. My husband enjoys playing games with me by switching them around. He usually switches the ones on the top shelf so I have to get a chair to reach them (I am 5’1.5″ tall, yes that 0.5″ matters…it makes me taller than my mom).
  5. I love Asian culture and music. I dream of visiting Japan and South Korea. I love Kpop! Go ahead…judge me as you will…I cannot get enough of it.
  6. I have hyper-flexibility in most of my joints. When I was younger I could put both feet behind my head and walk around. Though I can no longer do that due to my hip problems, I can rotate my left shoulder 180 degrees. I can also bend my fingers back toward my wrist. I am also able to walk on the knuckles of my toes.
  7. My inlaws own about 250 bee hives. It was about 400, but last summer the neighbor sprayed and the first half they brought back from Georgia died. Once I was healed from the surgery on my right hip (getting the left done in April) I was able to help care for the bees. I wore a bee suit (way too big haha. I looked ridiculous.) and help treat the hives for mites, split the hives, and place queen cells in queenless hives. It was hard work, especially on the hot days. Though it was sweaty work…I really enjoyed it. Honey bees are something too many of us take for granted. I will forever advocate for their protection.

There you have it everyone, 7 things about me. Now for fun part, at least fun for me, my nominations! I remind you that these nominations are in no specific order. I do not play favorites.

    1. I worked and had kids while getting my education as well. It was incredibly difficult, but I did it! My gpa is low, so med school might not be attainable at the moment…but I’m not giving up. I want to be a forensic pathologist. Basically a medical examiner.
      Working with the bees was not as bad as I thought. They get a bad reputation.
      When putting the queen cells in, I only wore latex gloves…never stung once.

      Yes! I loved that I could pick and choose what to share. Very versatile.

      1. Well best of luck with that! I will reveal my major when I post for this, LOL I had no plans of ever being a doctor! My older two children are in college right now both actually have double majors but nothing leading them to med school although they are both going to grad school

      2. I’ve thought about teaching. I’ve been told is be great because I’ve done so much with my boys and I’m great with kids. I don’t know though.
        I might work in a lab or become a death investigator. I could go back for medical technologist…. but I have so much debt already haha. School is crazy expensive.

  1. Thank you so much for all your kind words 💕 I’m happy you decided to do the tag! It is very hard coming up with 7 things, I had trouble myself. But every fact of yours was so interesting, especially the part about the beekeeping, that’s awesome!!

    1. I loved it!
      Sadly my in-laws are most likely selling the bees. They just don’t make money from pollination like they used to. I have to hoard free raw honey now!!! Thinking of buying store bought makes me cringe. Theirs is so good…and they only charge $7 per pound. I even helped extract honey over the summer. It was sticky but fun!
