How do YOU talk?

How do YOU talk?

A fun quiz I found. Learn what top 3 USA cities you talk most like, and most dislike, including a general map! I’m personally from Wisconsin. My results said I talk most like I am from Fresno/Western California, and least like Houston and New Orleans. 

What about you?

The universe is pretty amazing, isn’t it?

Here are 5 stories for you that I hope will brighten your day

*None of the following stories belong to me in any way*

Today, it’s been ten years since my best friend became ill and needed a kidney transplant. As I was a fitting donor, I chose to donate one of my healthy kidneys to her even after doctors said her chance of survival was only 30%, and that there would be inherent risks to my health as well. But here I am at 10AM, getting ready to drive to her wedding venue where, in just a few short hours, I will be her maid of honor as she marries the love of her life who she happened to meet at the hospital ten years ago. “

Today, it’s been ten years since my abusive ex-fiancé sold my favorite guitar. He sold it on the day I left him. When I went to claim my belongings, he was proud that he had sold it to a pawn shop. Luckily, I managed to track down the guy who bought it from the pawn shop. He was really sweet, and gave it back to me for free, on the condition that I accompany him on his front porch for an hour to play guitar with him. He grabbed a second guitar and we ended up sitting there on his porch for the rest of the afternoon playing music, talking, and smiling. He’s been my husband for nine years now.”

Today, it’s been five years since my mom was in a car accident that resulted in her losing all of her long-term memory from before the crash. When I was little, my mom and I used to quote a ‘Winnie the Pooh’ book as an inside joke. One of us would ask, “Have you ever seen a dragon fly?” And the other would reply, “I have, I have seen a dragon fly!” This evening I was sitting with her while we were watching TV and I randomly asked, “Have you ever seen a dragon fly?” And she responded with, “I have, I have seen a dragon fly!” We stared at each other for a prolonged moment, and then she jumped out of her seat and exclaimed, “Oh my god, I remember!””

Today, I have diabetes. Two years ago, after my mom passed away, I inherited her cat, Kita. At 3AM this morning Kita woke me up by sitting at the foot of the bed and meowing VERY loud over and over again. I had never heard her sound that way, so I sat up in bed to see what was wrong. As soon as I did, I realized I felt extremely lightheaded and weak. I grabbed my glucose meter and tested myself. My level was down to 53. Normal, according to my doctor, is between 70 and 120. My doctor told me that had Kita not awakened me, I may have never awakened at all. “

Today, we live in a lower-middle-class neighborhood. My wife was just diagnosed with breast cancer, so my 14-year-old son decided that he wanted to raise money to help pay for some of her miscellaneous medical expenses. His idea was to go door to door around the neighborhood with battery operated hair clippers and let people shave a part of his head for a small donation of their choosing. He asked me whether a $100 goal would be too much. I told him not to get his hopes up. He came back home ten minutes ago with a totally bald head and $1,223. Two people gave him $100 bills.”

Spirit Animals

I have always been one interested in all things not all believe in. Horoscopes, ghosts, aliens, psychics, reincarnation, spirit animals. While browsing the web, I found the greatest website. You can find this website here.

Anyway, I went through the whole website, looking through every animals characteristics. I found which animal I believe is my spirit animal….can you find yours? (I narrowed mine down to a Lungfish!)

Personal 1

Seeing as this is my first “personal” post, I won’t call it an “update” just yet. I decided it would be good to let you all know where I am at in my life as of now, so you can follow along if you’d please when I start posting regular “personal updates.” 

 

As of right now, I am unemployed. I actually quit my job just on Monday. I’ve been applying to places like crazy while hoping I will get a call and possibly a Christmas miracle…(get hired ASAP).

I’m also doing a holiday lottery ticket. Open a “window” each of the 25 days of Christmas, have a chance to win up to 100 K. So far I am only one symbol away from that 100 K as well as 5 other cash amounts. Wish me luck? I’m kind of competing with my parents, they have one too. I’m way in the lead on this. Wouldn’t that be a Christmas miracle?
