Top Ten Lists: Music, Mornings, and More

As part of an application for a school leadership group, I had to submit a personal top ten list.  The theme of the list was open.

I had a ton of ideas, so for the final list, I mixed a bunch of my ideas together.  For some reason, posting the final list feels immoral.  I don't see why.  But it does.

Instead, I'm posting the lists I didn't submit.  (Plus some fun photos that I think are kind of cool).

These lists are pretty dumb, but this is my blog and I do what I want.


Parties I want to host
1. Hannukah party
2. Bobbing for apples
3. Bring/make Christmas cookies and decorate them
4. Smoothie bowl party
5. Toast party
6. Study party 
7. Blogging party
8. Jam session
9. Outdoors party where we go hiking and canoeing and stuff
10. Everyone bring their dogs and all the dogs and friends have a big bow-wow



Best lead guitarists (deep down I knew I wouldn't submit this, so it's pretty painful.)
1. Matt Bellamy
2. the guy from Pink Floyd
3. Jimmy Page
4. Jon whatsit from the Fratellis
5. Van Halen
6. The guy that did Bad Horsey
7. Me
8. The guy from Deep Purple
9. Bill and Ted
10. Jimi Hendrixx
11. Malcom and Angus Young

(this reads like someone reading Apples to Apples cards)


Songs That Will Get Stuck in Your Head But You'll Be Okay With It
1. Light My Fire- The Doors
2. Piece of My Heart- Janis Joplin
3. I Will- The Beatles
4. Henrietta- The Fratellis

Ways to Be a Morning Person
1. Wake up and be thankful you woke up
2. Whisper "good morning" before you get out of bed
3. Dance and smile in the mirror
4. Hug yourself
5. Make a funny face
6. Forget any stress or negativity from yesterday.  Today is a new day.
7. Drink a lot of water
8. Say "good morning" to your family with a smile on your face
9. Make a breakfast that will make you feel good
10. Watch the Weather Channel


I was going to post all of my list attempts at once, but then I said to myself, what kind of a strategy is that?  What about when I'm pinned to the ground by exams and I can't find the time to type up a post, but I need to post to appease all three of my readers?  So I tucked five lists away for a rainy day.
Stay tuned for Top Ten Lists Part 2!

And check into The Blergh on Thanksgiving because I might post! We'll see. 

Until next time, have a very very happy Thanksgiving if you're American.  If you're not, have a very very happy Thanksgiving anyways.

World peace, love, and thanks,

Heather Motro <3
