Manic Monday

What I'm Reading: A Journal for Jordan by Dana Canedy, Close to Shore by Michael Capuzzo, and The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

What I'm Working On: I'm actually going to write something today -- probably notes by hand, but that counts.

In an effort to blog more -- and more interestingly this year -- I'm trying to find some standard blogs that I can always count on. I discovered Manic Monday. I love that it's so random. I'm going to try to participate for awhile.

The point is to answer the random questions posted every Monday. This Monday's questions are:

1. What gives you hope?
For me, I guess hope comes from seeing the world and people as they could be, not as they are. I make a point to look for ways to see this. God gives me hope, too. For what it's worth, I believe in a loving, forgiving God, and for a person who messes up alot (like me) that is a very hopeful consolation.

2. How often do you get your haircut? Describe your worst haircut.
About every 6 to 8 weeks. This usually includes new color, too. My worst haircut must have been when I was about 13 or so. My mom took me to a new lady and she waited in the car while I went in. I kept telling the lady that my bangs curled in a weird way and that she should leave them long. She didn't listen and instead whacked them off. The were awful and curled up so tight that it looked like I had no bangs at all. I wanted to pretend I was sick for a week.

3.What's your most treasured piece of jewelry? Why?
My wedding ring. And, seriously, do you need to ask?

So, if you're reading this, you're tagged. Post away.
