Blog on Fire

26 Aug

 

So the other day I was very surprised to see a comment come through from Beauty Still Remains nominating me for the “Blog on Fire Award”.  I was very excited as this is the first time I’ve had such an occurrence [this is a new blog after all].

Unfortunately, she caught me during my flight to DC/VA for work and I’ve been living in a crazy flux state since the nomination, so now I am just getting to fulfill the “requirements”, a list of 8 things about myself and nomination of other blogs on fire to keep the chain moving.

Here are the long-awaited 8 things about me:

[1]: I own a horse [a beautiful arabian] and I do equestrian vaulting [think gymnastics/dance/cheerleading [stunts] on a horse, but not mine].
[2]: I love photography.
[3]: I’m Economist at heart [and by training].  Any decision can be seen through the lens of Economics, like having sex or why people hit the snooze button.  It’s not just about guns and butter $$$.  That’s why I love the discipline.
[4]: I want to live overseas for out next tour or at any point really.  Anywhere [that fit with our life circumstances at that point], but would *love* Italy.
[5]: I’ve been trying to work in Iraq or Afghanistan… I’d settle for Bahrain as well.  It would be great if my husband could get stationed there too.
[6]: I live a life composed of “just one of those moments”.  Maybe I will elaborate someday.
[7]: There was a period in my life when the number of gay men I dated was greater than the number of straight men.
[8]: I want to write a book.

I’ve sent out my nominations.  Thanks for including me!

    I love economics as well (it was one of my majors in college). And you’re right, any decision can be traced back to economic theory. It really is a true social science.

      I agree. I never thought after my Econ 101 class, with a boring professor who talked like Elmer Fudd, that I would be so interested in the discipline.

      What is your other degree?
