I got Tagged!

Sary Walrus of The Walrus Room tagged me in a fun blogger challenge and though I don't quite meet the requirements (I currently have 352 followers, not the prescribed under 200) I'm happy to do it anyway. 

5 Things you Need Everyday
  1. My journal. I use it for everything, from jotting down lists of blog post ideas or scraps of poems, it goes with me everywhere.
  2. Blogs. I'm on the internet quite a bit, I'll admit, but I can't help it because I'm obsessed with reading blogs. And not just Goths either! I love getting little glimpses into the worlds of people with other interests, and on any given day I can be tearing through home sewing blogs, or granola crunchy parenting blogs, or biology blogs. Really, anything will do.
  3. Skirts. While I just posted last week about overalls, I'll be honest, I adore skirts. I can't stand the lack of freedom of movement I have when I have to wear pants. It's a total nightmare. So, skirts it is.
  4. My claddagh ring. Given to me by my boyfriend, I wear it every day, and it's something simple and cute to remind me that A. I'm a pretty lucky lady and B. that I need to get my butt back to Scotland.
  5. My camera. I carry it around everywhere and it's my first "big girl" camera, so I use it all the time. So much so that I started a Project 365 blog to document my life in one photo per day. It's been a great experience and now if I don't have my camera on me I feel unprepared.

5 Places You Wish to Visit

  2. Los Angelos, California
  3. France. All of it. Cathedral tours forever and ever.
  4. Rome, Italy
  5. New York City (I've been six or seven times but I would love to go back.)
