Yaaaaay, so Yums tagged me! I love these little tagging games. It’s fun to get to know a little something about you fellow bloggers. I’ve also thrown in an old skool pic of myself. ‘Bout a year ago. Loved that hair color. I may do that again come this Spring. Oh wait…check me out in Blue Black.

Crazy difference, no? And I was rockin’ a fab Hello Kitty necklace that I can’t find. Urrrgghhh! And what’s with pics in the car? LOL, am I the only one that does that? Anyway…let’s get to it.

(1) 5 of my favorite genres of music are: classical, jungle, screwed&chopped, ballroom and Egyptian. And I absolutely loathe mainstream music.

(2) I speak Spanish fluently. So much that my sisters and I used to pretend that we were Dominican back in the day.

(3) I don’t know where home is.

(4) I have several hobbies including cooking, make-up (obviously), photography, writing, reading, graphic designing, volunteering, traveling and water sports. I indulge in all of them pretty regularly.

(5) I’ve had some pretty random jobs. I’ve been a baby sitter, an assistant manager at Walgreens, Production Assistant, Photo Technician, teacher, telemarketer (the worse) and newspaper editor.

(6) I just graduated in August 2007 after 4 long years of undergrad. I changed my major from Journalism, Broadcasting, Computer Programming and finally settled for Africana Studies. 4 months later and I still don’t know what I want to do. HA!

(7) I know the alphabet backwards in English and Spanish, all of the books of the Bible, the word tongue in four languages and can identify several Vivaldi pieces. I know, I’m a nerd!

Whooooo’s next? I’m taggin’ the following:

..and I don’t know who else to do because I don’t want to TAG people who’ve already been tagged. LOL….ahh well.

Peace and jazz.

    Ok… I’ve never been tagged. What do I do?
    Btw, Love that hair color in the 1st picture, my hair is naturally auburn – great color:)

    Hey there!

    I was a Journalism graduate too! But, I couldn’t handle the stress of freelance writing and working for local newspapers for dirt cheap so I “sold out” and started working in Advertising. I’m making good money and now with the blogosphere exploding, I can write what I want and not have to answer to a damn editor!

    Let me know how your journeys go, I’d love to keep up with you!

    Much love,
    Lilan from The Daily Cookie!

    Ok, think I got it. I have no clue who to tag though – I’m brand new to all this!

    Hi there Divine Blackness!

    Thanks for your comments in my blog, they really made my day, seeing as I’m still relatively new to all this blogging and haven’t really made contact with that many people yet.

    I absolutely love your description of your blog: I read it and I was like: “Hey, wait! That’s me she’s talking about!” I could say the same thing about myself word-by-word. :-)

    I’m loving Clumps of Mascara and added it to my blogroll if that’s okay with you. I’ll be back many times, beware! (Will write about the 7 things soon, but just like Mikaela I have no idea who to tag either. Anyway, thanks for tagging me! 😉


  • Izar

    Oh and the auburn color really fits you, you look gorgeous with that shade! You should definitely do something like it in the spring.

  • ren
