I have to thank Sheila for giving me the Versatile Blogger Award. I feel humbled knowing that other people appreciate what I’m doing…even if I don’t really know what I’m doing haha.
The rules of the award are:
1. Add the Versatile Award photo on a blog post
2. Thank the award-giver and link back to them in your post.
3. Share 7 things about myself.
4. Pass the award along to 15 favorite bloggers.
7 things about me:
- I played baseball for 12 years and tried out for major league scouts when I was 18.
- I’ve been on the field at AT&T park in SF and got to take batting practice against a couple of trash talking former major leaguers, Vida Blue and Tito Fuentes. Tito said he’d buy me season tickets if I went deep on him. I crushed one to left but the wind knocked it down at the warning track 😦
- My photoshop skills (I don’t use PS for this blog) are self taught. All you need these days is an internet connection and you can learn anything.
- I have an associates degree in Early Childhood Education and I’ve taught preschool in the past. I’m also looking to get back into the classroom.
- I wrote and illustrated a childrens book that I’ve been meaning to upload to ibooks as soon as I redo the illustrations in photoshop.
- I like to bake almost as much as I like to eat desserts.
- If I could eat one thing the rest of my life, it would probably be pizza.
