Real Neat, That’s Me

Another nomination, The Real Neat Blog Award, was passed on to me from Wide-eyed at Finding my Opti in this mist. Thank you, Wide-eyed!


The Rules:

1) Put the award logo on your blog.
2) Answer the questions asked by the person who nominated you.
3) Thank the people who nominated you, linking to their blogs.
4) Nominate any number of bloggers you like, linking to their blogs.
5) Let them know you nominated them (by commenting on their blog etc.)

The Questions:

  • If there was one moment you could get back—which would it be? Would you do it differently?
    I know I should say that I would do something differently. It’s not as though I don’t have so-called regrets, but honestly, I’m not sure I believe regrets are worth regret. You follow? It seems to me, in hindsight, the choices I made, although initially producing unpleasant results, were important things to do. Those are called consequences and they’re crucial to personal growth. In retrospect, maybe I should never have bit my tongue for two years, or built that house on undeveloped land, or trusted that old boyfriend. It took a long time to see the way it all worked out was actually perfect, and they weren’t actually mistakes. Lots of things happen because they’re (often) inevitable or (almost always) better in the long run.
  • What is the one thing about yourself you’ve always liked?
    I’ve always liked my moxie.
  • Advice to your future self
    Hmm. I have no idea. My advice to my tomorrow self is to work in the garden in the morning, before it gets hot. Feel free to pass that around, I think it’s solid advice.
  • What is one thing you’d like to change about the present?
    Oh! Well, I’m almost out of peanut butter, bananas, Coke, and shampoo. I would like all those things to appear as if from nowhere, so that I could avoid the store!
  • Favourite quote?
    No matter where you go, there you are.
  • Piece of advice for young girls everywhere?
    Only ONE? Use sunscreen.
  • If you could undo one of the most defining moments in human history, which would it be?
    No thank you. I would not like the power. Much like the first question, I think it all happens for a reason.

My Nominees:

Josh at My Friday Blog

Veronica at Owl Wonder

Judwina at Edwina’s Episodes

Per the usual, I am not invested in your acceptance of the award nomination, and am merely delighted to share your links (and my joy in reading them) with others.

Questions for any willing nominees:

    I’m not sure whether it was intentional, but the answer to advice for young girls reminded me about that article ‘Advice, Like Youth, Probably Wasted on The Young’
    Use sunscreen. XD

    Regrets about choices I’ve made–I suppose there are a few. But as you allude to, we wouldn’t be where we are without the choices we’ve made, and who knows? We could end up somewhere we wouldn’t want to be. So yeah, that regret is probably not worth it.

    We all like your moxie too. 🙂

  12. This: “work in the garden in the morning, before it gets hot.” My kind of advice. Doesn’t leave much of a window of opportunity, though. But that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Happy yard work – get those pansies in, now, willya?
