The last few months, I have participated in Farley's link up, Currently! I love this idea. I like the creative style, but I also like taking time out to reflect in order to answer the questions. It also is FUN to "meet" some new bloggers, and visit other's pages.
If you haven't visited Farley's Blog, Oh' Boy Fourth Grade, click on the link below! You will be happy that you did!
Listening: I am listening to the show Numb3rs on Netflix. I can't believe they stopped making this show. I like the characters, but also all of the "math" talk. I like to play movies while I am working. The noise helps me focus.
Loving: It's hard not to think about the freedom that I have living in the U.S. 4th of July isn't about picnics and fireworks to me. I love that I can write what I want to on my Blog. I love that I have the freedom to draw, create, and share with teachers all over the world. I love that I have the freedom to be ME.
Thinking: I was thinking about all of the tasks I completed today. Not too bad! I gave my Facebook page a mini-makeover, including re-doing the "freebie" page. I am in the middle of giving my Blog a little face lift. I also designed a couple custom orders.
Wanting: Not everyone that you will come into contact, or network with always have your best interest at heart or appreciates/likes you for who you are. Unfortunately, I found out the hard way that not everyone claiming to be my friend really were. Nobody should ever have to apologize for being who they are, or for being too smart or funny, or for being better at something. The friends I cherish love me unconditionally WITH my flaws, smarts, and sense of humor! So my WANTING is "to forgive" those who were unkind to me this week. The loss is theirs. A heavy weight has lifted from my heart, and shoulders. My smile has returned, and I am free to be me. Just me. ;)
Needing: A.cabana.boy.to.make.me.a.fresh.drink! :) Yep, the "cabana boy" has been on my Currently before. A girl can hope, right? :)
Tips/Tricks/Hints: I don't know about you, but I think of my Blog (or website) as an extension of me. Just like I move things around in my house, I also like to move things around and change the "DECOR" of my pages. I know some may question if it's a good thing to do or not with branding, but it definitely CAN be a good thing for branding. I try not to go more than a month or two without changing some little thing on my Blog. My customers and readers notice it right away, which is good thing! It tells me that they are paying attention, and enjoy seeing what I have to offer!
I hope that everyone has a safe and happy 4th of July here in the States - and a fabulous SUMMER!!
