Day 31, Friday: A vivid memory
This week has been so busy that I don't even remember what I did 5 minutes ago, let alone think of a vivid memory.
I remember when I decided to do this challenge on May 1st--I thought I was crazy then and I still think I'm crazy for doing it, but by goodness, I was determined to accomplish the goal of posting everyday in May.
Prior to the challenge, I had barely posted at all this year. While the challenge reminded me of just how much I missed blogging and my blogger friends, it also reminded me how much I hate being told what to write about.
It might take me awhile to start blogging on a regular basis again, but I'll definitely be back!
Congratulations to everyone who managed to accomplish the challenge!

Day 30, Thursday: React to this term: Letting Go
Goodness, I honestly don't even know where to begin on this topic...letting go is so important.
Let Go of ex boyfriends--they're exes for a reason.
Let Go of people who treat you poorly--humans are creatures of habit and will continue to treat you that way.
Let Go of the past--you can't change it and besides, why would you want to? Everything that happened in the past made you who you are today.
Let Go of things you no longer need--unless, of course, you want to be on Hoarders.
Let Go of things you cannot control--give it all to God.
On the contrary, NEVER let go of your dreams!

Day 26, Sunday: Something you read online. Leave a link and discuss, if you'd like.
Read this article if you would like to discover some absolutely absurd reasoning behind the Oklahoma tornadoes. It's so outrageous, it's almost humorous. Why do people find it necessary to share their dumb opinions on anything and everything?

Day 25, Saturday: Something someone told you about yourself that you'll never forget (good or bad)
When I was in 8th Grade, I got this
real stylish cute hair cut (kind of like a long bob); however, I quickly learned that not everyone thought my haircut was as cute as I did--one of those people being my childhood crush.
One day he looked me in the eyes, making me giddy like the little school girl that I was, and said "Alana, you look like a dyke with short hair."
And that my friends, is why my hair literally has not been cut (aside from a trim here and there) since that day.

Day 24, Friday: Your top 3 worst traits
I know this will come as a shock to you all, but I'm not perfect; you see...
1. It's often difficult for others to decipher whether I'm being serious or sarcastic.
When in doubt, just figure that I'm being sarcastic.
2. I'm an avid interrupter.
I know this is one of the rudest traits a person can possess and it's definitely not something I consciously do, but I often catch myself doing it. I promise, I'm working on quitting this horrible habit. Is there a support group for this?
3. I pick at my toenails.
I used to be a constant nail-biter and
I finally broke myself of that habit my mom finally beat it out of me.
Okay, she didn't physically beat me, but she might as well have--she took away my freakin nail polish until I quit biting my nails!
Now, I only bite my nails if I'm extremely bored (with absolutely nothing to do); but I still find myself picking at my toes (often resulting in me having to cut my toenails too short/small to get rid of ingrown toenails). Disgusting, I know.

Day 23, Thursday: Things you've learned that school won't teach you
I am a HUGE advocate for higher education and have even toyed with the idea of going back for my Doctorate at some point, but I do realize that there are some things in life that school just doesn't teach you...
1. Common sense.
This isn't technically something I've "learned," as common sense can't be taught, but it is very important to note. I've often heard it said that most people don't have both common sense AND book smarts, but I'd like to think that I have at least a little of both. Nevertheless, the general lack of common sense I see in people never ceases to amaze me.
2. The fact that life isn't fair.
This is never an easy lesson to learn and my experience is that this lesson is typically realized as the result of a broken heart (for one reason or another).
3. What goes around comes around.
life another person doesn't treat you fairly, it's always nice to see them get what they deserve; although, I'm not a very patient person, so it never seems to "come around" quick enough for my liking.

I love this photo because it shows my personality--fun and bubbly
I love this photo because it shows me at my favorite place--the beach. No matter how cold it is, I would sit out there all day if I could.
Finally, I love this photo because it showcases my pure happiness at accomplishing one of biggest goals--getting my MBA. (this was taken the day of graduation, right after they gave me my graduation ring).
