Feb in Feb


For February, hopeandthedresscode and aworkingmomscloset are hosting "Fabulous in February." Every Monday in February, they ask us all to name three things that we just love about ourselves.

1) I love my brain. Yes, I can act ditsy and spell things wrong occasionally, but I have a pretty nice brain. I went to the University of Massachusetts, Amherst for undergrad where I partied hard and managed to maintain a pretty sweet GPA, graduated cum laude and was admitted into Psi Chi, the national honor society for psychology. After college, I scored a perfect score on the writing portion of the GRE and was admitted into Tufts University for my graduate degree. I'm most proud of this. Tufts is listed as the 28th best college in the entire U.S. Getting into my graduate program was NOT easy. Our entire program was 14 students and hundreds applied. They picked me. I'm so thankful for my brain.

2) I love how I love. If you make your way into my heart, you will know you are loved.

3) I love my open mind. I am happy that I'm interested in almost everything that others suggest and open to trying everything at least once. If people want to take goofy classes or learn weird trades, I'm the first one you should call. Life is about adventure and I want to learn how to decorate cakes, sew, quilt, zipline, ride a horse etc. I'm thirsty for knowledge and I hope that I never lose that thirst.

Amen on #3 (and the others as well...:)! I love that I am not afraid to try different things. I don't ever want to look back and think how I missed out on something because I was afraid to be too different, people would look at me funny, or I was too scared. I hope I never lose that part of me as well!

You sound like such a wonderful person - I wish I could meet you! The joys of blogging..."meeting" people but not actually MEETING them. Sometimes it makes me sad!

Tufts is an awesome school! We had like 8 kids in our graduating high school class apply there, and I think they accepted 3. My neighbor applied, had a million AP classes, great SAT scores, and straight A's and got rejected. I was shocked! Anyway, you should be so proud of yourself for getting in there for grad school! The fact that they only accepted 14 people out of hundreds says a lot about how smart you are! :)
