What is the Mystery Blogger Award?

“The ‘Mystery Blogger Award‘ is an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging and they do it with so much love and passion.~ Okoto Enigma.

I’m going to do things a bit differently because I really don’t think I deserve all of those lovely words up there, but my nominees certainly do.  Therefore, I will list my nominees here instead of the bottom of the page.  Visit them and enjoy.  You can thank me later.  🙂

3 Facts about myself:

  • I am very pet-centric.  I adore all of the animals in my life.
  • I have a rare type of epilepsy and the depression that comes from the restrictions it places on me.
  • I strive every day to as much of a Renaissance woman as possible.  I want to know everything, be able to do everything and teach everything.  I don’t want much!  😉


My Favorite Post

This is a tough one.  I think one of my earlier ones is still my favorite.

Jess’ questions (not Jessica’s because she hates that):

1) What is your favorite word and what does it mean?

Syzygy is the first word that came into my head when I read this question.  I love the way it sounds, I love the way it looks, I love the meaning.  Plus, it’s a kickass Scrabble word!

2) What has been the happiest moment in your life?

The one I have right this very second.  The past is gone and the future is yet to be.  What I do right now will color both.  How can that potential be anything less than remarkable?

3) Why did you name your blog what you named it?

I named my blog “Everyone Else Has the Best Titles” out of sheer frustration.  I had a whole bunch of ideas.  They were brilliant (in my own mind) and every single one of them had been used “out there” somewhere.  Song titles, other blogs, poems…”I finally threw my hands up in the air and said everyone else has the best titles!”  I sighed, thought about it, and figured what the heck.  At least it was unique.

4) What is your great goal in life?

To recover my mind.  About 3 years ago I was diagnosed with epilepsy.  My cognition suffered, my memory was bad, and I started spacing out.  Through a long journey of drugs and hospitals and tests I have made some progress, but I still have a long way to go.  The one thing that isn’t gone is my ability to write.   My goal is to regain some of the other aspects of my life.  I want my math skills back, I want to drive again, I want…well the list goes on for quite a while.  The good news is that writing here is really helping to keep me out of the hole of depression.  You all are part of my brain recovery program.  🙂

5) Hero, villain or anti-hero? Which are you?

Gotta be an anti-hero.  Isn’t the anti-hero always the most interesting?  Heroes and villains tend to be fairly predictable.  They think inside the box and it is either all good or all bad.  I say “What box?”

  2. That is pretty funny how you came up with the name of your blog. Creative! I’m sorry to hear about your health challenges, but living in the moment seems to lend itself toward a positive attitude. Happy Writing!

    1. I am so happy you like the title. It was born of frustration. I wanted something that was unique and everything I thought of wasn’t!

      I think we have already goofed up our plan of goofing up and becoming the best of friends. I think we are becoming the best of friends already. Yay, we goofed up at goofing up! We are amazing! hahaha

        1. Yay for US!!! You know, when I saw the title of your blog, I loved it. When I saw the subtitle, I followed you immediately. You obviously had a unique way of looking at things and I LOVE unique things. Then you made me HATE Stacie. There we have it! It was meant to be for us to be friends.
