The 7 Things I Love

I was tagged by both Kelly of Gratiae Ut Deus and Joe of Verbum Veritatis to do this so I will. Also, it serves as a "filler" post since I haven't finished reading "I Kissed Dating Goodbye" yet. And, yes, the blog (which I started last week) is on that particular topic. I have my reasons which you will soon read about... Anyway, without further ado -- the 7 Things I Love

1. Going to Mass and wearing a mantilla to the Mass. Anything having to do with the Mass makes me happy. Liturgical abuses make me one sad nerd. P.S. I refuse to clap along when singing hymns.

2. Saints. Reading saints books and having saint dreams. I'm also in the process of making myself a bracelet made out of saint medals.

3. Tea. All kinds of tea. I even drink it during the super hot summer. I guess you can call me a tea addict. Maybe I should've been born British. lol.

4. Flowers. I don't know why but I'm not happy unless there's a couple of flowers in each room. I also like falling asleep in a friend's garden. My favorites are different kinds of lilies and pink roses. If I ever have a home with a big backyard, I'll have a huge garden and put a statue of St. Fiacre in the middle of it. Wouldn't mind getting one of St. Therese of Lisieux's roses either. ;)

5. Things from the late 1930s to early 50s. Fashion, movies, music... love it all from that era. In fact, if I had the money, I would change my entire room to reflect this. Audrey Hepburn would be proud. :)

6. Music in general. Dancing to music, singing along to music, playing an instrument, etc. I have an "addiction" to iTunes. I've been trained (vocals and guitar) by the best, too. I've been very lucky. I still say St. Cecilia chose me, not the other way around, and am very happy she's my confirmation saint. :D

7. Ireland and the Irish culture. I don't know why but ever since I was a little girl, I've had a thing about Ireland. I wear a claddagh ring (and want to eventually get one with an emerald - my birthstone - on it)... one of my patron saints is Irish (St. Dymphna)... I look forward to St. Patrick's Day more than I do Valentine's Day and/or other holidays... in middle school I use to mumble something about wishing I was Irish on St. Patrick's Day to anyone who would listen... the men of Celtic Thunder and The Script make me swoon like a school girl (lol), etc.

See? That was short and painless and now you know a little more about the nerdette that writes this blog. lol. Okay, now I'm going back to my reading. :D I hope to have the new post tomorrow but no promises. :) Hope everyone had a good week. Thanks for reading and God Bless. :D

Hi, I randomly found your blog by searching for CSUN on twitter. Enjoying it very much so far, I look forward to reading more about a culture utterly foreign to me, though we do share the writing ambitions :)


Miss C.N.W. said...

Welcome, Denis. :)

Oh, twitter! lol. Thanks for reading, though. I don't know many people who would stick around to read with a nerdy Catholic girl writes. :D Are you a student at CSUN?

Denis said...

I was considering it for a moment. I was supposed to start an MFA program this fall, but that fell through, so I thought I could apply to CSUN's MA program. I don't think I want to do that though. I was just looking for people who knew something about it.

Miss C.N.W. said...

Ah, okay. Creative Writing program?

Denis said...

Yeah, the MA with the creative writing option.

Miss C.N.W. said...

Ah, gotcha. I'm looking into their Creative Writing B.A. (I'm way behind on finishing this darn thing.)

Kelly said...

Wow,wow,wow. I can't get over how much we have in common! Great minds think alike. ;) Thanks so much for taking the time to blog this and sharing a little about yourself.

God bless!

Miss C.N.W. said...

Really? Like what, Kelly? :D

Denis said...

Yah, I have a friend who was in their CW BA, and she seems to have enjoyed it immensely.
