Hey everyone! I am actually having a more normal Sunday. Yesterday, I was able to get my hair done by my favorite hair guy. My hair was in bad shape after my last appointment with my other stylist. I feel and look completely different. It was a makeover.
This is the after 🙂
Now that I am done showing off my new hair, LOL, it’s time to ramble happiness to all of you amazing people!
1. What is at least one thing that makes you happy today?
My hair was the first thing that made me happy. It had been an uphill battle growing it out to cut it. The second thing that made me happy was the fact I am here today being able to blog instead of the usual hustle and bustle of my hectic schedule.
2. What is one thing that happened last week that made you feel positive and happy?
I was able to practice with my team for my conference. We are almost to the time of meeting with legislators, and it’s been a learning experience for me. I have been a leader before, but normally I am just happy to participate in the conference. When approached to be a lobby captain, I was afraid that my lack of experience would be a crutch, but I volunteer with some very amazing people. That makes me feel more positive than anything. We are finding voices for people who have never had one.
3. What is your positive personal mantra? (Mantra means “a statement or slogan repeated frequently” via Oxford Dictionary.)
“And if at first you don’t succeed, then dust yourself off and try again…”(Aaliyah, 2000)
It’s been the story of my life, and it feels good to sing that song when there is a possibility that I will fail.
4. What is the nicest act you secretly did for someone?
I always attempt to do things in secret, like for birthdays and surprises for people. My problem is that I suck at keeping my own secrets. I suppose the nicest act I have done in secret is feed people. We had a spaghetti dinner fundraiser at the end of my time at my college with my local PTK chapter. I bought up as many meals as I could, and when we left…I drove around for two hours finding homeless people that looked like they needed a hot meal in their tummies. It felt good. The sad part is that not everyone appreciated what I was doing, and a week later, one of the people I fed tried to break into my car at the train station when I went to Oakland.
5. What is one hobby you would like to try?
When I was in school, I loved doing the poetry unit in Art. I would love to get a pottery wheel and get back to it.
Bonus Question: What is your go-to song to belt out in the shower?
It would definitely be this one:
