Corner View - 5 Things About Me

Corner View is a weekly appointment - each Wednesday - created by Jane and currently curated by Francesca, where bloggers from all corners of the world share their view on a pre-arranged theme. If you'd like to join in, please leave a link to your Corner View post in the comments at, and be sure to visit other participants, too.

5 Things About Me:

(1)  I just got back from an amazing vacation in Italy. (See photos below.)
(2)  I am going back to school for a 2nd BA - this one in Humanities.  I submitted my application to my number one choice, Rollins College, tonight - please cross your fingers for me!
(3)  I have the sense of humor of a 13 year old boy.  I can make any statement "dirty."  I consider it a gift... but I don't think my friends fully appreciate my "gift" :-)
(4)  I've only been back from my vacation two weeks and I'm already planning my next one. (January 2015 - Thailand and Cambodia - any tips on either destination are welcome.)
(5) Even though I'm 45, I talk to my parents almost daily.

Sorry that I've been out of blogland for so long.  I was in Italy for almost 3 weeks.  The week before my trip, I had surgery.  I had my gallbladder removed.  Who knew such a useless organ could cause so much pain?!?  I was a sick girlie the two weeks before the surgery. (I am doing wonderfully now!)  So, that's where I've been.  This weekend, I plan to catch up on my blog reads and look forward to seeing what everyone's been up to recently!

Happy corner-viewing!

  1. Hello Heather, I was beginning to think that you'd stopped in Italy, and never taken your plane back! :)
    Hope the trip was a success, and that you had a great time.

  2. Wow! You've been busy! I like how you described the gall bladder--so true!
    I get a lot of that typed of humor at school and by 7th period, I am no longer amused, so pity the poor 7th period boys!
    Glad you're back!:>)

  3. venice!!!!!!
    so much news! surgery, BA plans, holidays, ...
    i bet your five things change daily, hourly?

  4. great for the recovery and trip. Good luck with your application! I'm a bit older than you, and talk to my parents daily as well ;-)!

  5. Ha, your 5 things are so likeable! Don't ever change! I think I had fun with your teenage humour! And it's so WOW you're starting your 2nd BA!
    And Venice...I have to go there soon, I guess! I have been there when I was 2 or 3, so I don't remember much... ;o)))

  6. So glad you're feeling better! Fantastic that you're heading back to college. Good for you!

  7. Sorry about the surgury. I have been wondering where you have been at? Glad you areok! So jealous you got to go to Capri! I have wanted to go there forever. Love Italy. Would have never guessed you were 45. I thought you were in your 30,s. you must have great genetics.

  8. well, your trip to Italy is more important than keep on blogging! by the look at your photo's you have had en great time!
    how nice to look forward to your next trip and i guess you will take your 'thirteenyearoldhumor' with you too!
