I've Been Tagged_ Random Facts about Highly Favored

 I was tagged by Ms. Cookie to write 20 15 (sorry ms. Cookie) random facts about myself. 

1.  I wanted to be in the Funeral Home business really bad. About the second semester of my early college days I took Mortuary Science classes for 1 semester. I had an awesome business plan too.  Don't worry I'm not an undertaker.

2. I am my Mothers only child.

3.  As a little girl I daydreamed about living in America and fantasized about what life would be like as I saw in movies.

4.  I have a gap between my two front teeth.  It's really cute if I can say so myself.  I like my smile.

5.  I've had natural hair since 2008, however in 2012 I decided to cut it ALL off and start over  again.  My goal was to be more intentional of taking care of my hair.  So far so good.  I get compliments and questions all the time.

6. I am an easy-going introvert but still manage to be friendly and get along great with most people.

7.  I observe the Sabbath and attend church services on Saturday.

8.  My favorite fruit of all time are MANGOES. In the US, we are restricted to varieties without taste but In the spring I look forward to going to my local international store to get Haitian imported mangoes, sweet, juicy, rich orange in color, high mango smell.  While eating my eyes roll and I'm making mmm, mmmmm, mm sounds.

9.  I live in the State of Maryland.

10. I am originally from Jamaica.  Check out these Cultural Expressions Posts.

11. I love pastries and have a weakness for cakes, pies etc.  I'm getting better though. I'll now have two slices of cake and be satisfied rather than 5 or the whole thing. lol....(just kidding, kinda).

12.  I love Nature

13.  I love Jesus

14.  I am abundantly Blessed.

15. I am Highly Favored :-)

  4. Awww.. It's great you did this hun!
    @ no 1! *eyes wide open*.. You are the first person I know who desired this as a career path.. Why didn't you pursue it?
    I like the fact that your dream of living in America came to pass.. I hope it's all you dreamed of it and more :-) xx

    I think I'm going to do this too.. I have put it off for so long. Mainly because I don't know what to write.. lol xx

    1. You should Ayo, I thought of tagging you but then I figured someone else probably had already. I'd love to read/learn more about you.

      Long but interesting story...Perhaps I'd do better justice in explaining by writing a post about it one day.

  5. You definitely are the only person I know who wanted to be in the Funeral Home business....say WWHHAATT......that's a lot of liver right there..knowing the Naija mindset, some people will be scared to visit you or talk about business with you

    wow....you are from Jamaica....thought you were Nigerian

    1. The plan was to hire someone to do the actual work but this business would never see deficit you know....there would never be a lack of 'clients'

      I know I cheated .......I could have done better and found 5 more. Here is number 16 just for you (tongue back at you)......I fear all animals really, really bad..... if it walks on four legs and it's not human I'm terrified...especially dogs...even when on a leash and being walked by their owners. Interestingly though, I'm not afraid of insects (bees, spiders, flies etc.)

  8. Oh, I don't like dogs that much too but yours is higher than mine. Insects too? Lol.
    Thanks for the extra, I feel special :-)
