EYM - Playing Catch-up Has Become My Norm

As usual, lately, I am playing catch-up with my EYM posts. Here we go...



June 8-12: You have 30 seconds to change your whole name, what is it?!

Sugar Plum Buttercup

What? I only had 30 seconds and that's the first name that came to me.


June 15-19: You have been blindfolded & taken to a secret place, when the blindfold is removed, where are you?

An upside-down condemned building.

Why is it upside-down you ask? Because I am being held prisoner, with my hands bound & my feet tied to the rafters. I've been a bad, bad girl.


June 22-26: If you could learn one out-of-the-norm skill, what would you choose?

Knife throwing. Level = expert.

I'm a HUGE Loser and Here is Why...

I'm a HUGE Loser and Here is Why...

I have not been around lately!

I've been in my new position at work, shy a couple of months, and I've been swamped with new tasks and just the workload is keeping me on my toes. So to make up for it, I'm gonna bombard you with a ton of EYM answers....


May 18-22: What quirks does you BFF have that you adore, because it makes them unique?

1. She does this cute sound with her mouth when she is thinking. It's a cross between a chirp and a snap.
2. I'm also a hair twirler but she has longer hair so when she gets in one of her hair twirling frenzies she'll slap herself in the face/eye every time.
3. We have favorite sides when it comes to taking pictures.
4. She views her left and right differently than most people. I've learned to give directions as if I'm the seekee not the seeker.

I love everything about her!

May 25-29: Name a few things you like to eat while writing.

1. Chocolate
2. Chips & Salsa
3. Anything in arms reach.






June 1-5: Pick ONE of your 5 senses you find most important to you.

Sight.

Touch... taste... those seem super important too but I think sight would be the most important to me. I wouldn't want to miss watching my kids grow up. Sure I'd want to hear their sweet voices and feel their sweet kisses but I'd want to see their sweet smiling faces. I wouldn't want to miss the colors, or animals, or experience things live, die, grow, everything that has to do with life. I think you can experience a lot through your other senses as well but sight is the one I'd like to keep. And I'm sure some feel the same about the other senses as well.


Thanks for stopping by.

I promise I will make time to post at least on Fridays for EYM and Fast Fridays.








June 5: Books You couldn't put down. (I only chose series)

Hunger Games series by
Anna Dressed in Blood series by
Rot & Ruin series (aka Benny Imura) by
The Lunar Chronicles by
Finishing School series by

Express Yourself  is a weekly meme hosted by myself and Jackie. It's goal is to help our fellow bloggers get to know one another better by being nosey of course.

Each week we will find something different to post about. It will correlate with writing, blogging, and life in general. Then, we hope, you’ll follow suit and post what it is that motivates you.
 
May 4-8: Tell us about something you haven't tried yet, but would like to.
I would like to skydive. I'm scared shitless about the thought of it but I've always wanted to try it at least once.
 
May 11-15: We are 1/3 of the way through the year. Name something you have achieved thus far.
1. I've been promoted at work.
2. I made it through this years A to Z challenge (again)!

3. I've made new friends at work in the new building I transferred to (which I share a office with my cousin).

4. I've made it through my sick faze of my migraine meds so it's smooth sailing from here on out.

First came love, then came marriage, and then...

For seventeen-year-old Tam, running off to marry her musician boyfriend is the ideal escape from her claustrophobic high-school life on the island, and the ultimate rebellion against her father and stepmother. But when Tam becomes a widow just weeks later, the shell-shocked teen is forced to find her way forward by going back to the life she thought she’d moved beyond—even as her struggle to deal with her grief is forcing her to reinvent herself and reach out to others in ways she never imagined.
