Who are yoU? And TMI about me


I mean Really, who are you. What do you like to do? What are your natural skills? Were you born with a guitar in one hand and a mic in the other? Who are yoU?


I cover my head in the winter and I love to read.


As for me, I am really really good at getting stuff done. No matter what. As children, we all knew our parents view on driving their cars. My folks worked long and hard for their vehicles & there was no way they were going to let one of the four of us crash one of their cars. So at sixteen, I took matters into my own hands ... got myself a job (which my folks drove me to) and bought my first car a month after my eighteenth birthday, three months before my high school graduation.

I continued to work for a mass retailer in the camera department to pay for design school, although it was so pricey, I had to wait a year after High School before I could actually attend. I graduated in 1985 with a 3.5 GPA.


While working full time, little ole me decided to buy & renovate my first home. How did I do this? By cleaning office buildings at night.


A big dreamer, but even A bigger doer.  Yet, with the loss of  my parents to remind me of who I really am, I almost forgot.


This spot, this little space on this World Wide Web ... has helped me to clear the dust, while reminding me of my own personal greatness.


What about yoU, who are yoU really?

Blogging Revelations - A Kelly Rae Roberts E-Book reader Confession

... re posted from bloggingrevelations.com - 1/10/11 My very first private e-class was Kelly's and it was awesome! I learned so very, very much. But some things are never in a book, never written down. In her e-class/book Kelly stresses the importance of blogging in so many ways. Blogging was the first item of discussion in class. Blogging is the first chapter of her e-book.  Blogging ,  blogging ,  blogging . I've been a loyal follower of Kelly's &  Anna 's  for years now. Yet I'm not on any of their list. I've searched through their archives for the secrets to their success and found them on more than one occasion. I'm a speed reader. I read super more then the average person in one day. I love books! I love information & like Reed on Criminal Minds, I love to share tidbits of what seams to be the most unrelated information that I've gathered. When my Daddy, would say something is very important. I listened, then acted on his prompt. Liste
