As random as it gets (30 Days of Blogging Prompts – 1)

I promised myself I’d be in bed before midnight and I am. (Ten minutes to go before the bell tolls..)  I did, however, want to write a quick post before turning in because I’ve been agonizing about writing 10 random things about myself.

I’m doing a “30 day blogging prompts” journal swap and I have yet to start.  The way the swap goes is we are supposed to write according to a daily blogging prompt which number 30 in all, and at the end of the 30 days, we are supposed to send the journal to our partner.

The first prompt seemed simple enough but it turns out, it isn’t that easy.  So I’ thought I’d do “top of mind” and list here 10 things as they come without thinking.  (Random, indeed!)

1. I love pink.

2. I am a chocoholic.

3. I’m very tactile.

4. I discovered I could cook when I moved to the US.

5. I know how to drive (went to driving school) but can’t get behind the wheel because I’d need my own highway.

6. I love to write.

7. I consider myself more of a crafty person than an artist.

8.  My favorite cities are Manila, New York and Paris in that order.

9. I have always loved Snoopy so it’s a a happy coincidence that I work for a company that uses him as it’s mascot.

10. When I was a child, I wanted to become a doctor but when my mom had a tonsillectomy and I held the bag containing her tonsils, my stomach almost turned, so I went for the “other” choice and became a lawyer.  (Which is a secret in my current life because I’m overqualified for what I do…)


I knew that writing spontaneously without thinking would make me come up with a random list quickly.  It worked.  See the succeeding prompts below and follow the links from post to post if you want to see how I do with this 30-day blogging prompt gig.
