Day 31 happy, photo, and randomness

last day of the happy in August challenge. i like challenges and do not mind doing another one if there is one for September? i think i saw one about movies...that should be fun. i have been doing blog challenges now since May! wow! well, today i am happy b/c i have made it through the month of August. I am also happy that my area is finally shape and that i can give some things away. also happy that football season is here! wahoo! GO TEAM GO!!!

august photo challenge prompt today is dangerous! way to end the photo challenge right?

smoking is "dangerous" to your health!! (my Public health schooling is kicking in now!)

ramdomness-hmmm, why is it that often times you can tell when an engagement or marriage has ended often time by viewing facebook? they do not even have to tell just notice b/c some things are missing off their page now and their engagement pics or wedding pics are not longer in their colletion of photos. so sad, really. it breaks my heart everytime i see it happen.

NEVER again. they still joke with me about it, especially if we eat pizza or i eat too much and get a tummy ache. good times!

Sunday Social

here we are again. before Sunday is up, as it is Sunday Social! link up by clicking on the pic below:

Sunday Social

1. 3 items you cannot live without on a daily basis (other than food, water, shelter, clothes)--hmmm, my phone, my wallet (although it has no money it, but it does have a credit card or two!), and some type of purse.

2. all time favorite book and why? "Their Eyes Were Watching God" by Zora Neale Hurston. i wrote a paper on this book and made an "A" in high school english class with my great comparison between her life and a "pear" tree. she wanted to have children "fruit" and also their was rape involved under the pear tree and rape and pear have the same letters in it. it was a sad story but i made it work and got the grade!

3. something you want to accomplish before the end of 2013--a better job, a graduate school, and to move out of parent's home.

4. if i could go back and re-live any year in my life what would it be?-- the time in 2009 when i met my love. it was magical!

5. what do you wish people knew about you without you telling them?--that i usually get what is said to me the FIRST time around. i really do not like having the same thing repeated to me more than twice. i know how to ask a questions if i am stuck or confused. thank you!

**what are your answers?
