Inspirational Blog Nomination

Inspirational Blog Nomination

Thank you, Tracy at FEC-THis for nominating me for this award. I am shocked; I have not been blogging long, and I am touched that I am inspiring anyone at all.

From what I understand, I am to post about this award and the blogger that nominated (see above), tell 7 (random) things about myself and nominate & notify 15 other very inspiring bloggers. Here goes!

1. I am an only child.
2. I have no children, and have never wanted any.
3. I love punk rock, classic rock, alt rock, and hip hop.
4. As much as I wanted to move to the big bad city when I was in high school, I have remained in my small town//rural area, and I love it.
5. A talking tropical bird with limited vocabulary once bit me on the foot.
6. I am a liberal, but I think I look conservative (few piercings, no tattoos, despite coming of age at a time everyone got them to express “individuality”).
7. As much as I kick against the idea that because I had cancer I was supposed to learn a big life changing lesson, I did actually learn that while I cannot expect life to be all rainbows and puppy dogs after cancer, I can sure as hell work to make it NOT miserable. I spent the last year excising things, people, and situations that made me miserable. So I am going through a mini-mid-life crisis in which I have reverted to behaving like my late teen/early 20s bratty self, and I LOVE it.

Since I am still new to blogging, I hope I am following proper etiquette in my nominations:

Lindsay Sarah Interrupted
Riding the BC Roller Coaster
My cancer journey
I Can’t Complain Any More Than Usual
My Eyes Are Up Here
The Pink Underbelly
Journeying Beyond Breast Cancer
Telling Knots

  1. Dear Curmudgeon, Thank you for the nomination. Unfortunately, the process resembles nothing less than a chain letter for bloggers and I don’t feel comfortable passing it along.

    You have inspired me to contact my favorite bloggers and tell them they are awesome.


  2. You inspire me every single day and I love your bratty 20something self. You manage to keep me laughing through all the crappiness of cancer.
