WHEN I FOUND MYSELF SITTING AT THE COMPUTER READING SOME OF MY FAVORITE BLOGS I CAME ACROSS THIS POST ON Pam's BLOG.
"Oh, that's interesting", I thought to myself, "seven weird, or random things.......... wonder what unusual things I would say about myself?",
and the next thing I knew Pam had mentioned my name in her blog. IT SEEMS SHE WANTS TO KNOW THE SAME THING. AT FIRST I THOUGHT IT WAS A MISTAKE, THERE ARE OTHER PEOPLE NAMED MELINDA, BUT THEN I READ FURTHER AND IT SAID, "MELINDA, IN UKRAINE".
There's no doubt about it that must mean she is definitely talking about me. She has tagged me. That means I have to post 7 random/weird facts about myself. And I just have to say. I have been obsessing about it ever since. So I finally decided to just do it now before I made myself sick with worry. So here goes.....
FIRST: I couldn't think of weird facts about myself. And that was making me nervous. I found myself wondering, "am I so ordinary that there is nothing unusual, strange, or weird about me." That in itself is weird. Shouldn't we want to be considered normal. I mean we spend all of our young adult life trying to "fit in", which basically means trying to be like everyone else. Which leads me to
SECOND: I obsess about things. I get completely lost in my head worrying and obsessing about things I have no control over. Like, "should I agree to play this tag game, you know, I am on a mission, I don't want to give people the wrong impression. I don't want people to think I am not working hard on my mission, or that I am spending too much time blogging, which leads me to.......
THE THIRD WEIRD FACT: I worry too much about what other people think. You would think by my age... (we won't talk about that, let's just say, my "over the hill party" seems like a very long time ago.....) I would have conquered that little character defect, but I'm still working on it.
FOURTH: I still have to use my fingers to count. I found myself doing it the other night for Family Home Evening with the Mission President and his wife. I use to hide them under the table, but since I am working on number 3 now, I just let all the fingers fly right in front of everyone.
FIFTH: My husband thought I should mention that I have absolutely no interest in Harry Potter, or Lord of the Rings. I have never read a Harry Potter book and I hated the Lord of the Rings movie, it was pure torture for me to sit through.
Sixth: I never ever ever kill bugs, spiders, or insects of any kind, not even an ant. I pick them up and take them outside.
SEVEN: My favorite time of the day is just after we finish our evening prayer and I get to snuggle up next to my husband, who is my very best friend. It is truly a moment when I feel an overwhelming sense that all is well with the world.
So now I get to tag 7 of you. I tag, Mandy, Earlgirl, Abby, Angie, Annie, mothergoose, Stephanie
