30-Day Writing Challenge Days 26-30
Here we are folks, at the tail end of the challenge. Officially Tuesday was the last day, but I had to work overnight, and had some other things to wrap up, hence its delay.
Day 26: Things you like and dislike about yourself
There isn’t really a lot I don’t like about myself. My time management is getting better. Things are getting done in a timely fashion, and I also take off days.
I do like how I’ve been able to just be brave. I think it started around the time I’d started high school. I wanted to learn ballet so I did. I didn’t know how to swim, so I joined a team and learnt. Yeah, a part of me was ashamed to admit I didn’t know, but then I realized, why is that something to be ashamed of? It’s like not I grew up in Hawaii, or constantly around water.
Day 27: A quote you try to live by
I couldn’t just narrow it down to just one, so here are a couple that I love:
- Life’s too short to be drinking the wrong tea.
- You can never cross the ocean unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore.
I said the 1st one to myself after leaving Panera one day. I’d tried some new tea and it wasn’t working. I actually got out of my car, walked back inside, dumped it out and started again. But for a minute, I’d contemplated keeping the nasty tea, thinking it’d get better if I gave it a chance. Then, I realized how crazy that sounded. Life’s too short.
The 2nd one came from my Awesome Quotes board on Pinterest. It reminds me to stay brave everyday.
Day 28: Somewhere you’d like to move to or visit
You guys already know about California, but there are about 50 countries I have on my list to visit. Some of these are:
- New Zealand
Day 29: Five weird things that you like
This one was hard because I’m not sure what would be considered weird. I am weird about stuff, like gasoline. I don’t mind the smell of it, so long as I’m not breathing it in for longer than it takes to fill up my car (after that, I start to feel a bit nauseous, as I’m sure a lot of people do). But because I like the smell, it led me to research how gasoline is made, and why it has that scent.
Long story, it’s due to the aromatic rings that make up its construction from the many ingredients. Anything comprised of aromatic rings will have certain aromas.
Day 30: One thing you’re excited for
There are a few things happening this year that I’m really looking forward to. Until they’re confirmed though, I’m keeping them to myself.
