"The 'John Believes In Me' Contest"

The "John Believes in Me contest" is the genius work of John C. @ Homeless in Jacksonville and The homeless Family Blog
He's a real Blogger, with a heart of gold and as in such he has offered a real prize for a lucky winner, So, it's a good thing to do this contest! I personally don't know what the prize is, but, knowing John it has to be good!
OK, so this is what you have to do, BUT, you have to hurry, because it's almost time for the deadline..... Here's the rules:

Create a post with the following things:

1. What you like about yourself.

9. All entries will be checked, some immediately and others at the deadline.
10. Answers to #1-#5 must all be paragraph in size. Default count will be 30 words per question.

1. What you like about yourself.
The thing I like the most about me, is my love for Family and friends and traditions of such. I like to think that I instill love and warmth and that I teach all that come my way how important it is to love and live for today, because tomorrow may not come....
2. What you don't like about yourself that you can change.
I hate that I procrastinate... It's one of my pet peeves about others and I often do it myself, Its really a flaw, I feel one that can be changed, if the individual (me) wants to change it...

3. What you can do to make that change happen in #2.
Well I think to stop doing this , I have to completely change my outlook on waiting to do things.... I have to get rid of the thinking that I can do"it" later and just do what ever I'm putting off, NOW. Some things need to be done at the time they come up, not whenever I have the energy to deal with them....

4. What you can't change about yourself and haven't accepted.
My legs are TOO short..... Yes I know, I could wear high heels but I don't.... John, you said what I can't change, that's it my height.....
I have always had to fight to get anyone to notice I am actually smarter than my 5 foot 2 inch height.... Some people don't give much thought to "smart" being short as well as tall....


5. What you can do to overcome #4.
GET OVER IT! I have just faced the fact I am short and that some Tall people are idiots..... Other than that , You can't change your genes... My Dad is short , My Mom is short, they are above average intelligence , I am short and I'm smarter than even I, give myself credit for....
6. Link that post to this entry.
7. Title that post "The 'John Believes In Me' Contest".
8. Comment here with the URL of your entry on your page.
9. All entries will be checked, some immediately and others at the deadline.
10. Answers to #1-#5 must all be paragraph in size. Default count will be 30 words per question.

So this is it , My entry to Johns contest!
Peace!~!

I hope your day was great Judy... did the balloon ever make it all the way there? ;-)

Now. Here this you silly nut. You left me a message about the fuelmyblog contest and said you didn't enter because you didn't think you had a chance. I'm here to tell you that you HAVE won something, and that's a snorgtee. You see, that "View Clicks" page is the top 100 blogs votewise. They all get a free snorgtee at the end of the month only if you haven't posted an "I'm IN" post, then you won't be able to claim it. You HAVE enough votes to stay on that list and get a shirt but you need to post an "I'm IN" entry so that you can claim it. Otherwise, you'll have won a free shirt but won't be able to get it.

So write a post so you can claim your shirt. I promise you that you'll be on the top 100 list on the 31st!

Silly nut. You're a shoo-in for a shirt. Don't not get one for not having a post up or I'm going to have to tag you for 6,847 memes. LOL.

Mwah.
