The Versatile Blogger Award

Ms. Blasé nominated me for a blog award about two weeks ago and I completely got caught up in everything! It just caught my eye in my inbox as I was clearing my way through it so I’m posting about it right now before I give myself the chance to put it off again.

Thanks for nominating me for the Versatile Blogger Award! And I apologize for taking so long!

Anyhow, I am supposed to share seven things about me. Wasn’t that one of the most difficult things you had to do for introductions in school? How am I supposed to share 22 years of life in said amount without talking about the generic stuff!

Here’s what I just came up with:

  1. I love love LOVE the color purple. As if you couldn’t tell by my blog that’s all purple. My room is purple too!
  2. I was born in Pakistan. Grew up in Canada. And now reside in the U.S. Talk about confusing! 🙂
  3. Until the eighth grade, I was absolutely positive that I wanted to be a teacher when I grew up. So much that at every family get together or when my younger cousins came over, I would play school with them, teaching them what I was learning then in school. Can you imagine teaching a kid five or so years younger than you what you are learning when you are in elementary school?
  4. Then in the eighth grade, in my history class we discussed the constitution in great lengths. I could not be more interested! I immediately became more and more interested in the law. I remember I went home that day and researched online as much as I could. Soon, studying law and becoming a constitutional lawyer was something I aspired to do. Let’s see what happens with this one.
  5. I met two U.S. presidents in two consecutive days. In my own state! One of them came to my university.
  6. I love politics and ESPECIALLY elections! Click here to see what our living room looked like for the 2008 Presidential Election night. It’s never the same and oh so intense.
  7. In sixth grade, I got the Principal Award (I think that’s what it was called) for having the best grades in my entire middle school (sixth, seventh, and eighth grade). We had an assembly for the awards and after all the other awards were called like the honor roll (for everyone who got all A’s I believe it was) I started crying because I thought I did bad in school for the first time in my life. I was so upset with myself that I completely missed the whole introduction about the principal award and the only thing I heard was my name and then applause and my whole class smiling and urging me to go up to accept the award.

By the way, crying should have been a number on it’s own – I am the most sensitive person I know! I cry about everything — happy, sad, whatever.

Thanks Ms. Blasé! It was a nice way to reflect back!

P.S. Don’t forget to leave me a comment below on your thoughts! As always, I’d love to hear from you.


  1. You&#39;re welcome!<br /><br />Your list was amazing! And my favorite color is purple too!… so much so that I had my car painted that color :)<br /><br />And TWO American presidents! Whoa! And that photograph of your living room at election time was hilarious. I stayed up late to watch as much as I could, but that pic took the cake!<br /><br />Again, CONGRATS!!!

  2. Thanks!<br /><br />Ms. Blasé – Haha, that photo sums up our crazy interest in politics pretty well :)<br /><br />Karen, are you participating in the challenge? Thanks for reminding me about it actually! I had completely forgotten!
