Cherry On Top!

And I have been tagged!! :)

Here are the rules and I'll do the tag as I go along...

1. Thank the person who gave it to you - Thank you Chanz.

2. Copy the award and put it on your blog - Here goes...

3. List 3 things you love about yourself

i) I love my honesty. People who I like know that I like them, and those I don't, know that as well! And I make no efforts to pretend otherwise. Sure, this gets a lot of bitchiness coming my way...it also gets me the tag of 'arrogant' & 'snobbish' by people who don't really know me. But it keeps my life simple and I wouldn't have it any other way.

ii) I've been told I am a pretty cool person :) I don't poke my nose in other people's business. I am non-clingy, non-possessive. I try to be as non-judgemental as I can be. I don't judge people by their actions immediately. I try to give them the benefit of doubt at least once...try to make external attributions for their actions. I label them only if they exhibit the same behavior over & over again. I won't get offended if you forget to return my call...or didn't do it b/c you were feeling lazy. It's okay if you want to take a raincheck on meeting up an hour before we're supposed to meet! That's not to say that I'm a push-over...just that I have very few hang-ups in life.

iii) I love the fact that I'm reasonably stylish. Because, you know, appearances do matter. Deny it all you want, they do. Besides, it adds a little bit of excitement to a dreary work day!

4. Post a picture you love (e.g. a person you adore etc.)

Well, I'd like to leave the people I love & adore out of this public forum. So I'm putting up the picture of the University I did my undergrad from - The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. My Alma Mater. The place that changed my inside out & made me who I am today. The place I spent THE BEST four years of my life & gave me friends for life. The place I love & will miss till the time I die.

These pictures are just a glimpse of the heavenly campus and don't even begin to scratch the surface.

5. Tag 5 people you wish to pass this award on to.

Well, I'm going to tag 3 people instead of 5:

Moonshine - That "little bit extra" spunk!

The Knife - Beautiful food blog with that "little bit extra" that has made him a celebrity food writer!!

Serendipity - She pours her heart out in her blog.

Heyyy... just when I was dreaming of a nice sundae in the middle of a harrowing day which just doesn't seem to end. And a cherry did feature in the image :)

Thanks so much Scarlett. The college pic looks so heavenly.

And completely agree with you on the honesty part. Which is why I love reading your blog

Moonshine said...

Thanks Scarlett!!!! You are so sweet :)

You talk straight from the heart!!!! Love that about you, how can anyone not!!! And no one can be gloomy around you.. no one!!!!!!!!

Scarlett said...

@The Knife - Thank you. I would say I'm pretty candid on the blog.

I'll try & post some more pics of my college...it was the most beautiful campus in the world! The entire town was a college town.

BTW, what's with unending harrowing days/phases in life? Even Moonshine will agree!

@Moonshine - Thank you, how sweet. Though I've mellowed down quite a bit now. You'll be able to tell when you meet me! Can't say I like the change completely though.
