Blog Every Day in May: Days 7-10 -- What I'm Afraid Of, Advice, Moment, Embarassing Moment

Friday, May 10, 2013

Catching up!

DAY 7: The thing(s) you're most afraid of

Death: Not so much my own, but losing others to it. I'm always afraid of some sort of accident happening, and whenever I or my husband get a phone call late at night, I expect it's to inform that someone has died/been in an accident.

Space: I am both in awe of and afraid of space. It's just so massive and we still know so little about it. I love reading about it, and I love space-based science fiction, and I'd love if there were some sort of intelligent life form out there. I think this video is great at putting the size of stars compared to our planet in perspective.

Fish: Yeah. I can look at them, I find them neat and all, but the thought of touching one? No, no, no.

Weird fish at the Toronto Zoo

DAY 8:  A piece of advice you have for others. Anything at all.

One of the best pieces of advice I received from a therapist: When faced with a conflict, ask yourself, "Will this matter in a week, month, year?" It really helps to put into perspective whatever trouble you're facing and to help you move on. 

 DAY 9:  A moment in your day (this can be just a photo or both a photo and words)

Digging into one of my storage boxes for items for an upcoming post! Kudos if you can name any of these products/brands.

DAY 10: Most embarrassing moment (s). Spill. 

Probably a couple weeks ago when a little bird decided to poop on my shoulder in public! I'm not sure if anyone (aside from my husband) saw, but I was still pretty mortified.

  1. That piece of advice is really good, really really good! Sometimes we are just so caught up in the moment that we blow things out of proportion.
    And ok I'm gonna try to name what's in your storage box:
    1. Marcelle Skin Enhancer
    2. Some Too Faced Palette
    3. Sample of Porefessional
    4. Some face wipe?
    5. A maybelline mascara's pink packaging peaking out
    6. And a set of lipgloss... from benefit?

      6. Benefit Ticket To Glossytown. I don't think it's available anymore, but you might be able to find it online maybe!

  2. I spy Detrivore, everything else I don't know xD

    I find space to be VERY overwhelming but so intriguing at the same time. It's definitely not good to think about the vastness and the possibility that we might be alone in the universe, and how the universe is doomed to kill itself.....when you're having a bad day xD

    lol years ago D got peed a the middle of the afternoon. He's rolling in all sorts of luck surely.

    1. Yay Detrivore!

      I always want to know -- what made space? I mean how did it exist before the Big Bang and all that, like how did it come about? That blows my mind.

      Oh gosh that is even worse!

  3. This is such a fun little challenge! I like the piece of advice you shared... always good to get perspective on things :) And YES, I am afraid of touching fish too! I went snorkelling with fish one time and was so terrified at first that one would touch me!

    1. I couldn't even go snorkeling -- you're brave! I'm glad I'm not the only one here afraid of fish though!
