Take 5!

Mari had this meme up on her blog recently and I thought it would be fun to play along. You're welcome to play along too. Here's how it works. Mari got 5 words from another blogger and she did a post about the words she was given. She then offered to give 5 words to someone else. I thought it would be fun, so now I'm going to post on the five words she gave me. If you want to join in, tell me in the comments and I'll send you your own five words!

1. Work
I have been blessed with 2 part-time jobs. My favorite job is at West Shore, a counseling office. I am the office assistant there and I absolutely love it! I have been working there for about a month now and I think I have gotten the hang of what I do. My job is extremely detail oriented and constantly busy. The phone is always ringing, or there are clients waiting to be checked in, counselors needing things done, copies to be made, papers to be filed, faxes to be name it, I probably do it! My other job is at a nursing home. I do laundry there, not the most glamourous job, but it is something that has to be done. My favorite part of this job is interacting with the residents, there are so many interesting people in our home!

2. Love
Well, if you read my blog, you know that I have the most amazing boyfriend. We have been dating now for 18 months (last Saturday) and I wouldn't trade a second of it. I wasn't terribly into guys in high school, but I did wish that I would have a special guy to spend weekends with and such, especially when many of my friends were dating. But thankfully, God had a better idea, and I met Mike my second semester of college. We've spent a lot of time together, getting to know each other. I've learned a lot from Mike: I've learned the meaning of unconditional love, he loves me even when I don't feel loveable; I've learned selflessness; I've learned patience; and I've learned to say I'm sorry. Mike, if you're reading this, you've taught me so much and I'm so thankful for you! I love you!

3. Cooking
If I could have my dream job, it would be to be able to cook and bake all day! If you read my recipe blog, I'm sure you've noticed that I love to create new recipes and try out new things, modify old recipes, and try recipes from other people. I could spend hours browsing websites for yummy recipes. My favorite days during the school year were Fridays because I didn't have to go to school so I would stay home and bake all day!

4. Music
Where would I be without music? I am constantly listening to music, and I almost always have a song stuck in my head (for instance, right now it's "Lucky" by Jason Mraz). In highschool, I played the clarinet, I have taught myself how to play the keyboard, and I used to sing in my church's praise team. Music has always been a huge part of my life!

5. Car
Where do I start? I have not had much good luck with cars! I was so proud of my first car, a little green Sunfire. Then it started giving me more problems than it was worth (literally, I put about 3 times as much money into all it's many repairs as I spent to purchase it!) and I decided to sell it. Then I bought my beautiful Sebring convertible. That was such a fun car to drive, especially with the top down and the wind in your hair! Unfortunately, that car's life with me ended tragically earlier this year. Now I have a nice Stratus. It is a good car and I think it will last me a while!

I'll try to post again later this week when life slows down a bit to update a little more on my new job. But this is all I have for tonight. If you'd like me to pick out 5 words for you, please let me know!


  1. Wow - you are quick! I enjoyed reading what you had to say about your words!

  2. Hi Melissa!

    I've got inter-net at home again... back to blogging regularly. I'd love for you to send me 5 words -- so I can have something fresh to blog about. Ü
