Anke at THE ARTIST IN ME asked me to join in for 7 random things. Here are the rules for doing it and of course I ask 3 poeple to do it as well! The rules: -Link to the person who tagged you and post the rules on your blog.-Share 7 random and/or weird things about yourself-Tag 3 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.-Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
The next 3 persons will be:
JANA at Jana's Journey
MARY ANN at Follow Your Bliss
ANG at Altermyworld
You do not have to participate...but it looks like fun!!!

Here are my seven random things about me:

1-I used to play the piano...quite good (from what my teachers said) even got to play at Carnegie Hall...Have not played in eons...I can still read music but cannot play anything by memory...have to study notes...(have been playing since I was 4)
2-I lack SELF - CONFIDENCE big time....have never been able to over come this...I have always been in fear of being rejected or laughed at.
3-I am very laid back...easy going...I have a 60's kind of style about me.
4-I was a cheerleader in grade school/middle school...go figure - for our basketball team...GO TEAM (what happened to that cheerleading body???)
5-I am obsessed with certain TV programs like: crafts shows, poker, law and order and forensic science shows...
6-I LOVE football - both college and NFL...gotta watch it...
7-My first language was spanish....but now cannot speak a lick of it (tho I understand it perfectly) parents decided before I started school that english was more important to fit in. My parents only speak spanish at home - I understand perfectly but answer in english...pretty strange!!!

This was fun!!! Give it a TRY!!!

Thanks Ellie for sharing yours. My husband loves football too. So every sunday and saturday it's football night. It's ok with me ;)
I used to have certain tv shows I used to watch every day, but since Maya is born, I kind of lost interest. Never give up gaining self-confidence, it's not too late! Plus I think yours grew big time in the last couple month!!!! Keep on going!
Smiles, Anke ;)
