Icing on the cake...

    I can count the times I've worn makeup on one hand. Most people don't care about it. Why should they? It's my face after all. Naturally I was dumbfounded when a close relative confronted me about my face.

    One day when I was at a relatives house she pulled me aside and asked to talk to me. I was concerned that something serious was wrong. She said that she was "worried I was not normal because I did not show interest in makeup and dresses". As I stared at her with my jaw dropping more by the second she compared me to a cake. "Cake tastes good plain, but even the best cake needs a little frosting."

     Did she just compare me to a cake? A cake that needs frosting? What the f*** just happened?  I had no clue how to handle this situation so I walked away and stayed in the bathroom for a few minutes. I didn't and still don't understand why this  happened. 

     I won't lie though for a while it bugged me. It made me second guess myself.  Comments can hurt, and when they come from people you are close to they seem to hurt a little more. Be careful with your words. Thank goodness I can laugh about the ridiculousness of this now. I hate to disappoint everyone but I'm a human not a cake; and I plan on staying that way.


Edventure Girl

I have been reading Edventure Girl for a few years. Hannah is pretty cool. I love how her blog shows that even though she is a world traveler she is just a normal teenage girl. She world schools. I know a few of you may be saying world schooling? What's that? It's a nomadic version of homeschooling. Could you handle traveling the world with your family? I don't know if my family could do it. I first found out about Edventure Girl when my mom sent me the link. She had just posted about elephant riding in Thailand. I had just started homeschooling and mom was trying to show me that there were several very cool people around the world who homeschooled. Yes, even I had reservations about homeschooling once upon a time. There are many types of homeschooling and I think Hannah's family has a good idea. I love this post she wrote. Ten ways world schooling has 
ruined my childhood. Make sure to check out all her posts. You won't regret it. Here is the link.  Edventure Girl


Blog Design

You may have noticed quite a few changes on Awesome Anna. I really like how it is turning out. I owe it all to my best friend Bryleigh. Yes, on top of being there for me 24/7 she also is helping redesign my whole blog. From fonts to color schemes you will see changes. That is how amazing she is. She is also a good writer. Please check out her blog, I promise you won't regret it. A Little Yarn Blossom

Deaf and Hard of Hearing Roller Derby Skaters Worldwide

So I got a package the other day. It was from Deaf and Hard of Hearing Roller Derby Skaters Worldwide! They sent me a shirt signed by meat train! In case you don't know... Meat train is a deaf roller derby player from New Zealand. She is pretty awesome. I respect her so much. She made it to the roller derby World Cup. The World Cup was in Dallas this year by the way. She got a bunch of other really awesome people to sign the shirt too. But I really respect all the work she has put in to get where she is. It's not easy. Not in the least. So a big thanks to Meat Train and Deaf and Hard of Hearing roller derby skaters worldwide! 
Make sure to check out their awesome Facebook page. It's under Deaf and HoH Roller Derby Skaters Worldwide.
