Me – A-Z

 

Avid reader

Brave, I like to feel the fear and do it anyway (As long as cockroaches and butterflies are not involved).

Cheerful (most of the time)

Dreamer

Enjoy cooking and baking

Fan of Stephen King

Goofball (sometimes…okay most of the time)

Happy (most of the time)

Intelligent (except during ‘Blonde Moments’)

Juicer ( I juice all kinds of veggies and fruits and drink a juice everyday)

Kindhearted (most people I know think so)

Love my family, friends, chocolate covered strawberries, animals, nature and basketball (Go Heat!).

Mondays I don’t have a problem with it’s Sunday nights I have a problem with because it’s the end of the weekend and I have to go to bed early, but I’m still on weekend mode!

Never underestimate the power of being kind – one of my mottos.

Observant

Polite, persistent

Quiroz (my Sicilian surname)

Rascal, my little toy Pomeranian

Saucy (sometimes)

Talented

Unique, understanding, unpredictable and upbeat.

Vivid imagination

Willing to try very hard to win over someone’s affection, but after so long – click – the switch is turned off – for good. I can only jump through hoops and bend over backward so much.

Xanthocomic (yellow-haired)

Yikes! (I couldn’t think of anything else for Y)

Zzzz – I love to read and sleep during thunderstorms.
