Five Things

I’m writing for the Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop this week on “5 Things!”



5 things we don’t know about you:

This is hard because I don’t hold back much and I’ve told ya’ll a whole darn lot. So, I will try to think of more.

1. The only way I can truly “re-charge” is by being alone.
2. I worry a lot about what others think of me, but I have managed this better as I get older and oh-so-wiser.
3. I wouldn’t say I “collect” angels, but I sure do have a lot of them around, and I like that.
4. I do not like Nicholas Sparks’ books, nor do I like any of the movie adaptations of his books.
5. Even though I consider myself to be intelligent, I can also be an air-headed ding-bat.

5 things you’re knowledgeable about:
1. Disney Pixar Cars
2. Liking kids
3. Reality TV
4. Relaxing
5. Lean storage manufacturing and aluminum gutter systems (a result of writing freelance articles)


5 things you know nothing about:

1. Car repair
2. Football. I know nothing about it. It is like a foreign language.
3. Correct table settings – I never remember
4. Grilling and mowing the lawn – I have never done either
5. The Stock Market

5 things you believe:

1. People take themselves way too seriously very often.
2. There is so much more to this world around us than we could ever imagine.
3. Love and God is all around us in many places and in many forms (and CERTAINLY not only found in a church).
4. All the people in your life exist to teach you things about yourself.
5. Creativity is more important than industriousness.

I have to be alone to recharge. I start to implode on the inside if I don't get enough of it.

So with you on reality tv, yes indeed.

Aimee said...

Ditto your comment to me exactly - I love your "I believes!" The hardest part for me was figuring out what I'm knowledgeable about...I began to feel very unaccomplished, since I tend to know a little bit about a lot of subject, but I'm not an expert on much of anything!

Tina said...

I worry what people think sometimes too but you can only be yourself can't you! :-)

Carolina said...

OMG are five thinks ARE almost the same! Especially the one about Nicholas Sparks books and the movie adaptations. My 14 year old loves his movies...gag!!
I too believe in laughing and drinking wine..yeah!

Eva Gallant said...

I've only read two of Nicholas Sparks' books; they were tear jerkers....I refuse to cry over books or movies. There's enough in real life to cry about! When I read or watch a movie, I want to either be on the edge in suspense or laughing my ass off!

angie said...

I'm so glad you picked this one. I learned a bit more about you!

Arnebya said...

My 11 yr old asked to watch The Notebook or one of the others. Um, ok, if you wanna watch alone. I haven't read any of his books. I read the jacket and just...eh.

Jerralea said...

I have to be alone to recharge, too! I love my alone times, but they are few and far between.

I will never understand football, either!

Jessica said...

I too have to be alone to recharge. Im actually alone at Starbucks right now, while hubby is with the kids, so I can recharge.

Anti-Supermom said...

I'm so bad with anything car related. I blame it on my dad being a mechanic. Fun list.

Amanda said...

Such fun!! I would never have guessed that you semi-collect angels! :) I probably should get a few for my house, so they can watch over me while I drink. Ha!

Cam | Bibs and Baubles said...

I feel like I'm never alone so the re-charge thing... I don't know. I'm working on it. As for football, I'm glad I'm not alone. My ex tried to explain it to me and he said "see, it's like war". Immediately I thought no wonder I don't like it!

jazzygal said...

Yes, I am indeed getting to know you very well through these posts!! Am with you on the grilling and mowing the lawan...I've done them once or twice but generally refuse to. That's hubby's jobs as far as I'm concerned ;-)

xx Jazzy

Dionne said...

I don't a thing about the stock market either and yes, I take myself way too seriously sometimes. At least I catch it, then I have to laugh at the stupidity of it.

I have to agree from your blog that laughter and a good wine go hand and hand.

Diane said...

I was nodding my head in agreement to so many of these! But I do love The Notebook...the book and the movie. :)

Marie said...

That was definitely a fun read! :)))

Anonymous said...

I didn't mow a lawn or grill until I was 50, so you still have time! Life is one huge adventure! ILY, Mom

Jenners said...

I love all your lists. I can so relate to much of them ... especially the ding bat one and recharging while alone!

Thanks for the visit earlier.

Rachael said...

Love your lists! I also do not dig Nicholas Sparks. I read one of his books this summer and wanted to punch myself in the head when I finished. I've never seen The Notebook, even though people think it's SO great.

Isn't it funny what freelance article writing can teach you? I know way more about horse ulcers than I ever thought I would...

championm2000 said...

I like your things you know nothing about list. My advice--don't learn about any of these things...then people expect you to do it or like it or explain it.

The Naked Mother said...

I also need my alone time to recharge. And chocolate.

The ZB said...

I most certainly agree that everyone you meet has some sort of purpose in your life--and you in theirs, as well! This, in fact, is what I love most about the blogging community.

Jessica said...

I am right there with you on the topics you know nothing about.

Clipped Wings said...

Thoughtful post. We are so much not alike, lol.

jm@inspirationforweightloss said...

Correct table settings ~ I agree with you there, I never remember either, just recently though, my daughter learned how to set a table in home economics at school and she ended up setting a beautiful Thanksgiving table for me!

MamaMash said...

What is a-l-o-n-e?

Tina Lane said...

I am with you on number 1. As I get older I need my solitude.

Venus said...

Love your lists, thanks for sharing!!! I relate very much, especially to the list of things people don't know about you (except for number 4, I don't know who Nicholas Sparks is, should I be worried??).

:-)

The Pepperrific Life said...

I also worry too much about what others think of me, and I hate Nicholas Sparks! His books lull me to sleep. Sure beats counting sheep!

Those are interesting things about you :)
