Versatile Blogger


I've been blogging for a while now, but only fairly recently have I become more active in the running blogging community.  As I participate in  Megan's (WatchMeGoRuns) Operation Hardcore Fit  I've begun to follow a few new(to me) blogs and viceversa.  For the first time I was tagged in Versatile Blogger Award by Michael over at Marathon After Fifty.


The rules: To share 7 things about yourself.  Then to tag 15 people.

1.  I sleep with the fan on every. single. night.  I managed to break the habit while traveling in Spain, but as soon as I returned, I fell back into my old ways.  It doesn't matter if it's -20 degrees outside, the fan will be on and often blowing on my face.

2. I desperately want to own a dog. Preferably a Beagle but I also have a soft spot for Airedales, Boxers, and Westies.  I hope that once I am fully employed (and no longer nannying or part time work)  to adopt one.

3. I am obsessed with Starbucks.  My goldcard membership is one of my prize possessions especially because it saves me 1.10 off of my favorite drink (Soy Misto with Vanilla)


4. I have 3 major interest, running, traveling, and summer camp.  In an ideal world, I'd be employed in a way that I could do all three.

5. I am mildly obsessed with completing my bucket list.  It's a bit hard to actually complete it, since I add things quite regularly.  But currently I have completed 15% of my life goals.

6.  I love duct tape especially the new colored ones that have come out.  I used to make a variety of wallets and really wanted to make a prom dress out of duct tape in high school, but didn't have the guts!

7. Currently I am rocking out with a samsung flip phone that doesn't even have a camera.  I couldn't justify spending 100 dollars on a smart phone when I spend most of my day sitting in front of the computer at home.  Initially it was a bit of a struggle, but I found that I text less and spend more time with the people I'm with when I'm with them, except for the roommates/parents since I'm usually trying to find someone else to hang out with :)


Much like Michael, this is my first one and I am new to the community and between this one and the 11 facts one - I think I'll skip tagging anyone except for my college roommate that has recently joined blogger!

  1. I always sleep with a fan! Thank God my husband did too! I have a Yorkie and they are WORK! Beagles are so cute. Westies are in the Yorkie family. I'm partial. :-D Thanks for stopping by Mrs. Miller's Miles, hope to hear from you again! Love your blog!

    1. I once had a westie but my uncle adopted him from me while I was in graduate school. Personally I like almost all dogs, so it will probably just be whatever is at the shelter when I'm ready :)

    1. It's actually quite easy! If you register a reuseable gift card and use it 30 times within one year = gold!
