Well I have officially been tagged. I am so excited. This has never happened before. Usually I just play along, not being asked, but this time I was asked. Thank you Flying Mermaid! So now I am going to try to play by the rules the best I can.
First: The Rules
*Link to the blog of the person who taggd you.
*Post these rules on your blog.
*List seven random and/or weird facts about yourself.
*Tag seven random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.
*Let each person know that they have been tagged by posting a comment on their blog.
Now: My Seven Random Things:
1. I love to watch movie credits just to look at the names to get ideas for baby names, even though I am not even married yet and don't plan on having a baby for awhile.
2. I hate driving when it is dark and rainy outside.
3. I don't want a diamond ring for my engagment ring. I would like something unique...I am a mission to find something that really speaks to me.
4. I love to read, but tend to read more than one book at once. It takes me awhile to finish a book because of this. I keep jumping back and forth between books.
5. When Christian is not home I love to dance around the apartment and sing really loudly in the shower.
6. I love cards...sending and receiving them. I think it is so nice to open the mailbox and find a card. What a sweet surprise. It is also so nice to tuck small cards into peoples pockets and have them discover it later on.
7. I prefer to be the passenger on a car ride (if someone I am comfortable with is driving) because I love to look out the window and enjoy the scenery.
The links to seven people I am tagging. I am sorry but I only feel comfortable tagging two people. This is all so new to me. Here are the two:
So if you would like to play along, I would love it. :) Let me know so I can read your seven things.
When I first posted World Hold On on You Tube, I must be honest I never thought people I know would find it. Only a few people I know "personally" read my blog. So it was a little easier for me to post that video. It was so much fun to make and liberating to post.
However, leave it up to your brother to go searching and find it. And now it has spread. Not only has he shard it with my family, but Chris shared the link with someone from work...so now they all have seen it as well.
It is hard to explain the feeling when people come up to me and say as they are laughing: "so I saw your video on You Tube, man you got some nice moves." They question why I did it, and even try to mimic me. At first it was a little hard to take in. It is something extremely out of my element. I am not used to being the center of attention, and people talking to me about something I did. Something like dancing. Heck, I barely even dance at Weddings because I feel like I cannot dance. But as the night when on and more people mentioned it my embarrassment faded away. Yes I know many of them laughed at the video, but it felt good to be able to make them laugh and make them smile. It showed a different side of me. A braver side possibly.

Tomorrow is our big moving day.
People have said congratulations, and that makes me sad inside.
We are not 'moving up'
We aremoving down.
Going from our one bedroom, to a studio.
Of course financially it is much smarter for us,
And will give us the chance to save our money for Mexico.
Yet at the same time it is a little sad.
So many happy memories here.
I love this apartment.
I am really going to miss this apartment.
It is going to be strange to see someone else living in 'our apartment.'
I am also a little sad because the apartment is not what I expected.
I saw the studio next door and thought it was the same,
it had a huge bathroom, and enormous closet.
413 does not have those two great features.
I am not sure how we will fit our things...
How everything will flow easily.
I am nervous about no walls to divide things
and a smaller space.
I am sad, and today I am going to let myself be sad.
Tomorrow will be a busy day of moving,
and finding new places for things, and making our space..."our space."
Tomorrow will be exciting, but today is sad.

Blogging really makes this amazing place a little more special.
I normally sit at home observing others,
comforted by their words,
and being inspired by their courage.
And yes, I do blog...
however I never challenged myself to be so brave.
So today with diving inspiration from the fabulous Jen I decided to challenge myself...
to do something I normally would never do.
I am shy and never choose to be the center of attention.
I used to be terrified what people thought of me.
Although that fear still lurks in the back of my mind, it is not as strong as it once was.
Today I am shedding some more skin.
I am grabbing the world with both hands!
And to be honest, it is exciting!
So here goes nothing .
I really had fun with this, and hope you enjoy!
~Dancing always makes me happy, I wonder why I don't do it more often.
When we are young we all have dreams of "When I grow up I will be (fill in the blank)." Sometimes our dreams become are our destiny, at other times our dreams fall to the waste side. However I truly believe that we should never stop dreaming. So at 27 years of age, When I grow up I want to be....
A "superhero" Saving the world by connecting with people and using my superpowers to allow others to see the 'human side' of things and connect with each other. People would form bonds as strong as superglue. I would make a difference in the world by using my ability o connect well with others.
A "teacher" Inspiring, thrilling, life changing. The teacher you never forget and the one always strive to be a better person because of.
A "travel photographer" Exploring far off places, taking beautiful photos, and sharing them with the world. Telling the story of particular places with my images.
A "ballroom dancer" Dancing beautifully, gracefully, intimately across the dance floor with flawless moves. Simply divine,
A "life coach" Using my ability to listen well, to guide people to strive for the best in themselves. Guiding people to achieve their dreams and be the happiest they can be.
Owning my own sleep away summer camp. Where children come to flourish and grow. Raising their self esteem, confidence, and making them aware of their roles in the world. Boosting self esteem and respect for all individuals.
A "immigration activist" Fighting fora ll the illegal immigrants. Giving them a voice and changing the laws. Also guiding and helping them personally on their journey.
Those are mine, in no particular order of course. What are you going to be when you grow up?

Namaste: A word I have seen around every so often, but never knew what it meant. Today I finally looked it up. And here is what I found:
"Namaste: A Sanskrit word meaning The Light of God in Me recognizes and honors The Light of God in You and in that recognition is our Oneness."
"In other words, it recognizes the equality of all, and pays honor to the sacredness of all."
Possibly this word has various meanings, but for me I am going to hold on to this one. Now all I need to do is figure out how to pronounce it.

I think those photos say it all for a 27th birthday. That is how I feel, and with my nueva computadora I am able to express it very quickly and easily. Thank you Christian!!
Lots to do. Yesterday was my lucky day. Christian and I got the apartment across the street. It is downstairs, but I think that might be better for us. I got my birthday surprise. And I surprised Laurie at her front door trick or treating. I tricked her and I got the treat. It was a great day. Now it is time to continue packing. 14 more days till we are in our new place.
