Very Inspiring Blogger Award

I woke up today to the unexpectedly pleasant surprise of having received the "Very Inspiring Blogger Award" from When In New Places. Quite serendipitous to have an expat living in Korea teaching English randomly connect with me, no? 

The rules of accepting the Very Inspiring Blogger Award are:

  1. Display the Award Certificate on your website.
  2. Announce your win with a post and link to whoever presented you with the award.
  3. Present 15 awards to deserving bloggers.
  4. Drop them a comment to tip them off after you have linked them in the post.
  5. Post 7 interesting things about yourself.
And now to pass on the honor:

Unfortunately, I'm apparently kinda lame, and I only have 9. Please feel free to suggest other awesome blogs that I should check out sometime. ^_^

Seven Interesting Things About Myself:
1. I was imported from Seoul, Korea.
2. Once upon a time I used to (try to) spin fire.
3. I'm a giant nerd at heart. (Lord of the Rings, anyone?)
4. Internationally, I've traveled to Ireland, Italy, Belize and Kenya.
5. I'm not satisfied with #4 and have a pretty wicked case of wanderlust.
6. In my past lives I've been a barista, bartender, server, fitness counselor, logistics management specialist, yoga teacher and an intern counselor.
7. In spite of #6, I still have no idea what I want to be when I grow up.


  1. Spin fire is something I've always wanted to learn. When you add Korea to your #4, and if you come to Busan, you'll have a tour guide and friend in me :) Also, I don't think we're ever supposed to figure out long as we're busy living it's too difficult to limit ourselves to one thing, in my opinion. Wonderfully serendipitous to have met you for sure. Keep up the amazing writing, you have a great gift.:)

    1. Thank you so much. The thought of visiting when I "know" someone who knows how to get around makes it much less daunting.... Let's stay in touch. :)

      P.S. I was never very good- I left Hawaii before I really got a chance to get into it. Maybe in another life I'll try again. ;)

    2. Just trying the whole spin fire thing is awesome, I'm so afraid I'll torch my hair. Staying in touch is a big definitely! :)

  2. I quite like reading at Blogs are fun :)
