You want to know about ME?

My favorite blogger Suzie81 has posted a blog asking various questions to her followers.

Since I am new, I have opted to answer her questions on my blog so that all my followers can learn a little more about me.


1. Why have you chosen your blog name?

The T represents the first letter of my first name. I decided on memoirs because I want my blog to be an electronic journal on what is going on in my life.

2. When you have an hour of free-time, what do you do?

I like to crochet, knit, blog, and exercise. Lately, I have been using my lunch hour to catch up on the blogs I follow. To be honest, in the last couple of months I have had no down time.

3. If you could choose to stay a certain age forever, what would it be?

Well, I am 30 and over the last couple of months, I can see my age starting to set in with fine wrinkles and other body changes. I would want to be 22 forever.

4. If you could learn to do something, what would it be?

I would want to learn more about the American Legal System and more about human behavior. I hope to get into law enforcement in the next coming years and hope to understand why people do the things they do so that I can help them over come their hurdles. Learning about space would be nice to know too!

5. What would be the first thing you would buy if you won the lotto?

I would buy a house for my family.

6. What is the thing that makes you absolutely unique?

Hmmm. I can’t say I have a unique skill but I am a unique snowflake and I am making a mark in the world. I am doing my part to make the world a better place. Or at least I hope so!!!

7. What is your favorite blog?

Well, I answered it in my opening. I really enjoy reading from various bloggers but the questions is what is my favorite blog and it’s Suzie81’s blog.

Thanks for wanting to know more about little Ole me!!!

P. S.
I would like to learn more about you, so feel free to answer the questions above in the comments section or create your own post and ping me back.

Common Misused Words

When writing, I have noticed that I sometimes second guess myself about using certain words.

I don’t know about you, but the following are some words that cause me some grief.

1. Loose vs. lose

I have a loose tooth.

Don’t lose your phone.

2. Too vs. To

I worry too much.

You will want to watch the movie, too!

3. Choose vs. Chose

Chose is the past tense for choose.

4. Affect vs. Effect

Affect is an Action

Effect is the End Result

5. Advise vs. Advice

My doctor advise me to start exercising.

Please, take my advice and stay in school.

6. Your vs. You’re

Your paint brush needs to be put away.

You’re welcome.

7. Do vs. Due

I will do my homework in the morning.

My report is due on Wednesday.

It’s embarrassing to admit that these simple elementary words would cause such an issue but they do.

I will usually ask my 4th grade daughter to help me out and if she is not around I have to google it.
