Dear Readers,

Quite some time ago, I was nominated for the Sunshine Award by heatherbcosta.wordpress.com. I thank God for this blessing and Heather as well for nominating me! Thank you so much, Heather!

So, one of the rules of this award is to tell you ten things about myself. So, here I go!

1) Xena: Warrior Princess was my favorite show growing up. I’m still huge fan.

2) Sticking with the same theme, Lucy Lawless was my “idol” along with Mel B and Mel C from the Spice Girls and Serena from Sailor Moon.

3) I fell in love with my husband when I was sixteen years old. He’s still my one and only.

4) My favorite color is red.

5) I bawled my eyes out at the ending of 2012’s Les Miserables. Religious themes touch a special place in my heart.

6) My favorite food is an authentic Caribbean beef patty with coca bread.

7) This year I added Cloud Atlas to my list of favorite movies that only includes one other: The Lover, ’91.

8) I learned how to back a car and a commercial truck in a parking space just this year.

9) I tried eggplant, pomegranate, kale, collard greens, and brussel sprouts for the first time this past couple of months.

10) I am currently following the TV series Almost Human. Michael Ealy, if you’re reading this, I think you’re awesome!

Alright, here are ten bloggers that I am nominating for this award:

1) Faith Life and Compassion

2) Prince’s Daily Journal

3) Miss Ananda

4) Charis: Subject to Change

5) The Life-Charged Life

6) Inspirational Reflections

7) Unforced Rhythms of Grace 

8) Teaching in New York City

9) Poutine and Kimchi

10) Faith & Virgin Cosmopolitans

Thank you so very much for sticking with me on this journey, and congrats to all the nominees!

Peace and Love,

7 Interesting Things About Me

1) I really don’t like text messaging. I think it makes people less personal, and I also believe that it negatively impacts the comfort and skill of one’s verbal communication.

2) Red is my favorite color.

3) I love animals and nature, but I hate studying science.

4) I am painfully horrible at math.

5) I usually drink 3-5 cups of tea a day.

6) If I had no self-control, I could eat an entire bag of spicy Doritos in one sitting.

7) For some reason, I am a very, very grumpy sleeper—at least that’s what my husband says.

Thanks again, everyone.

Peace and Love,

Ariffa
