Day 5: Kickin' It Old Skool Blog Challenge

Throughout December I am Kickin’ It Old Skool with Jamie Ridler, Shannon Ridler, and a whole group of other creative bloggers. We’re bringing back the days when blogging was fun and not just another chore on the social media frontier. Join in any time! The more the merrier.

10 things about me? Hmm... okay, here we go.

  1. I have ducks. Two of them. Beautiful, white, silly ducks named Squackers and Buttons. Until they were big enough to go outside, they lived in my bathroom and swam in my tub.

  2. My favorite piece of jewelry right now is a simple silver bracelet with a blue star, which I bought from a lovely woman on Etsy who donated most of what I paid to Make-a-Wish Foundation.

  3. I believe in magic. Not like hocus pocus, and while I'm a big David Copperfield fan, I realize most of his tricks are illusions. But I believe that we can create magic for each other and that we can find magic in the world around us if we really look.

  4. My favorite movies are Jumpin' Jack Flash, While You Were Sleeping, and Die Hard.

  5. I am deciding on a logo for this site. A logo that someone else is creating. Someone whom I am paying. This is a big step for me on my life work journey.

  6. I enjoy reading oracle cards. I have only done it for myself and two best friends, but maybe someday I might branch out. Saying this out loud is massively scary as I am also a Christian and some would say these notions conflict. (And by the way, saying a religion in public is also massively scary.)

  7. My chest is actually thumping from number 6 because I've always tried to blend in and not make waves. I'm not used to taking stances. Knowing what I think and owning it is something I am working on.

  8. I am not to be trusted with glue (except maybe an occasional glue stick). I have inadvertently glued things to mugs, tables, floors, and myself. So... yeah. Don't ask me to glue anything.

  9. My very first blog post was in February of 2007 where I first started blogging about the internet and technology and their effects on humanity. This topic still intrigues me.

  10. I have a Facebook page for which I would love to have 100 likes by the end of the year. Would you care to "like" it?

  3. I love oracle cards and use two sets of them. I don't worry about what others think or say about that. I am Catholic, but I believe being spiritual is better for me than being religious. =) I enjoyed reading this - it is scary sometimes to share things about ourselves.

  4. Love your beautiful site and learning more about you. I believe in magic too. I do oracles readings. I believe in God, The Divine, and Oneness. And I hopped on over and liked your FB page, thanks for the invite!

  8. Thank you, Donna. I agree about spirituality and religion. They are somewhat separate (though not necessarily dissimilar) concepts, and both intrigue me.

  9. Thank you, Jen! I love how you stated believing in "God, The Divine, and Oneness." I may need to adopt that phrase myself. And thanks for the FB like!
