So. I got a chance to get away this weekend for once. I have not traveled in quite some time…at least two years or more. I have not had the time, money, or physical health to do so. So You can imagine how happy I was to be able to go away somewhere new, even for just a weekend. Sometimes that’s all you need. I went to a friends family reunion in Atlanta, Georgia this past weekend. I was pretty excited but nervous. I’m a reserved person when I meet new people. Granted, I know a good number of them because I know the family well enough…but none of them had really seen me since I had gotten sick a year ago…so I was very apprehensive about the whole thing. I can kind of “clam up” in these social situations. But, it wasn’t as bad as I had thought. I didn’t die on the flight (I HAD a fear of flying…) and I was happy with the kind treatment from the airport workers with the powerchair situation. I had not flown since becoming ill, and wasn’t sure how it all worked. Either way, things went pretty smoothly. It was H O T as balls in Atlanta…but then again it was just as hot back home in chicago 😛 And humid too, jesus. It’s very pretty in Atlanta, where we were. I believe we were in the central downtown area. I won’t go into details about the reunion itself cause that part is irrelevant…but I will say I wish I had more time to go and do more touristy things. I didn’t really get a chance to. I mean I saw some things in passing in the car, I got to see CNN studio and went to Hard Rock Cafe. Otherwise, not much else. That’s my regret. I DID have a good time and enjoyed the weather, but I could have done that at home 😛 Next time, I’ll do a lot more. Oh, I also went to Centennial Park for a brief moment. Twas nice.
I have now been bitten by the travel bug. After coming back from my vacation, I know have this sense of adventure and want to see what else is out there. I would LOVE to go on another weekend trip before school starts…I really want to and if I can find someone to go with me, I just might. We’ll see. I AM planning on visiting my boyfriend in Canada for the Christmas Holidays this year AND going on a trip to London next summer before I have to start Grad school. I have never really traveled much and now I just want to see everything. If you have good suggestions of places to travel (for both a weekend getaway, or longer), feel free to let me know. 🙂
So I think I found something kinda cool from stumble upon called “Past Life Analysis”. Granted, it’s nothing real or factual about it. But I do think things like that are fun to think about and play around with. My ‘analysis’ was actually pretty spot on to who i am today…which I found out. And I did go into this not really thinking much of it, other than it just being something silly. So, if you want you can give it a go and see what you end up with. It’s kinda fun, if you let it be.
My Analysis: (figured I’d post it…those who know me in real life when attest to it sounding just like me)
Your past life diagnosis:
I don’t know how you feel about it, but you were female in your last earthly incarnation.You were born somewhere in the territory of modern Israel around the year 1400. Your profession was that of a seaman, dealer, businessman or broker.
Your brief psychological profile in your past life:
As a natural talent in psychology, you knew how to use your opportunities. Cold-blooded and calm in any situation.
The lesson that your last past life brought to your present incarnation:
Your task is to learn, to love and to trust the universe. You are bound to think, study, reflect, and to develop inner wisdom.
So yeah. Here is the link to the site. I hope you all enjoy!
Oh. And Bro Tip of the Day: Talent is Natural, excellence is a choice.
If you end up doing the analysis and get something cool, feel free to post your results
Day One: Top Five Favorite Excuses Day Two: Top Five Favorite Books You’ve Read For School
Day Three: Top Five Names You Wish Were Yours
Ok. So…this one is funny to me because I have a bit of a stigma against my name. A lot of people have mispronounced my name since I was in grade school (I’m a senior in college…that’s many years of dealing with name destruction). I don’t see HOW it’s that difficult because it’s Nadia…nah-d-yuh. Jesus christ. Anyway…I’d like to have a different name. SO…
1. Isabella (so my nickname could be Izzy)
2. Veronica (It’s a sexy name, me thinks)
3. Felix. ❤
4. Natasha (kind of like Nadia..but easier to pronounce…)
5. Chester….(don’t ask. it would be awesome).
Day One: Top Five Favorite Excuses
Day Two: Top Five Favorite Books You’ve Read For School
This shouldn’t be too difficult…I had to read A LOT of books for school.
1. Slaughterhouse IV (my favorite book of all time)
2. The Shining
3. Dracula (by Ann Rice.)
4. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
5. Devil in the White City (I HIGHLY recommend…if you want to read about a seriel killer 😀 )
I think I was one of the few students who didn’t mind assigned reading (so long as it was a good read…) What books did you have to read for school (high school or college)? 🙂 Or at least what books did you wish you had to read?
So I really like doing challenges…and I searched around for some I might like…I hit the GOLDMINE…but Had to settle on just one. SO. Since I’m really elitist in what I tend to like, I figured it would be great for me to do a challenge concerning my Top 5’s of various things. Here we go.
Day One: Top Five Favorite Excuses
1. I was really busy (I’m sure you were)
2. Oh, my phone was on silent.
3. It’s not you, it’s me (has never been used on me but…I always find it a funny excuse anyway)
4. I’d hang out with you but…the doctor said I can’t have cheese on tuesday (Don’t ask…my friend Dan made this one up LOL)
5. I forgot. (I use this all the time. People probably think I can’t keep a thought in my head).
😛 Any others? Feel free to comment.
I’ve been so busy…lol I forgot to post what I found last week…so here we go 😛
This is a “Would you Rather” quiz type deal I found on stumble. At first I wasn’t sure about it and then I found myself answering more and more questions. I also like that it shows what other people have answered (shown as a percentage). So yeah, give it a go 😛
