Questions from nominees:

I decided to pick 11 questions out of  55. I can't answer that many questions lol.

1. Why did I start blogging? I started blogging because I felt I had alot to say that could help single women. I also love to make people laugh and think so I figured, why not. I also like to read. I've found so many great blogs in the process of growing my blog.

2. What's your favorite color? Green! Although, most people think pink because I wear it so much.

3. Who taught you the true meaning of love? My god mother and father. They cared for me, a child who is not their own. That's love!

4. What's your earliest childhood memory? I have the best memory when it comes to the past. But if you ask me what happened last week, blank stare. Anyway, my first complete memory was when I was three or four. my god mother took me to get my picture taken. I remember this because my hair has always been curly. She brushed my hair so hard to make it stick to my scalp. By the time we made it to the studio, my ends were curly.

5.What drives you nuts? I have two major pet peeves. Dogs unleashed in the back of a truck AND people who are always late.

6. Are you an early bird or a night owl? Early bird!

7. What's the last book you read? 72 Hour Hold by Bebe Moore Campbell. I wanted to understand the struggle of mental illness from both sides.

8. Dream vacation. My dream vacation would be Hawaii. I would love to spend a week soaking up the sun and food. maybe one day...............

9.What makes you a rare commodity? My ability to stay calm when everyone around me is freaking out.

10.Paris or NYC? NYC baby! Can't wait to go back.

11. If you could pick any other career you wanted, what would it be? A freelance writer. I know I could do that now, but I want to make a decent amount a money. You know, enough to pay rent and buy food lol. Maybe one day. I'm working on it!
