Yesterday Dr. Hari Chana supported Stoic Lawyer with a nomination for the Versatile Blogger Award. I am very grateful to be nominated, especially by a blogger whom I respect as a thoughtful and insightful writer.
As with anything, there are some rules for me to follow with respect to this nomination.
Here are the rules to the awards:
- Thank the person who nominated you and link back to them in your post.
- Share 7 things about yourself
- Pass the award on to 15 more bloggers that you enjoy
- contact the people you have nominated.
Seven things about me:
1) I’m learning to be a runner. I ran two 5ks last year and plan to run at least one this year. Since starting running in August 2011, I’ve lost nearly 30 pounds and am lighter than I was at any point in college.
2) My first love is history and I have my undergraduate degree in that field
3) I took up baking bread while studying for the bar exam. I make a mean batch of bagels.
4) I am married with a young daughter and 2 cats.
5) Although I was raised without organized religion, I really wish I belonged to one. If I had been born Catholic, I think I would have pursued a life in the priesthood.
7) My favorite past-time that I don’t get many chances to indulge is fishing. I can’t wait to take my daughter fishing for the first time this spring. (She asked to go; I didn’t even have to bring it up.)
Paying it forward:
I don’t actually read 15 blogs. I’ve only recently discovered that blogs aren’t a waste of time and I’m trying to catch up. That said, I’d like to give a shout out to my current favorites.
- Pamela Daw – Musings of a Stoic Woman
- Words of the Ancient Wise
- Michael Daw – Living the Stoic Life
- Cathie Filian – Make Something
- Professor Howard Freeman – Religion Clause
- Meditation Enthusiasts
