That’s right. It happened. I just combined Honey Badger with Merit Badge. Why? Well, basically the meme makes me laugh and comes in handy when the going gets tough and I need my big girl pants. I also keep bees, wash my face with the versatile tonic – honey (blog post soon), loved my time as a Girl Scout, and am infatuated with the Mary Jane Farmgirl Sisterhood. Still thinking, honey badger? Here is a website collating all thing HB. [note: adult language]. And BTW, I do care, about a lot of stuff, but sometimes you need to let things go… and be fearless.
One of the many benefits of the Sisterhood is the ability to learn new skills and share with others, though the Merit Badge process. Much like I remember Girl Scouts…. I have been putting off getting this journey started and the end of 2013 is nearing, so time to get on it. There are seven sections with a total of ninety-nine tasks, each with three levels of achievement (7 x 99 x 3). In other words, two-thousand seventy nine bits of awesome necessitating a spreadsheet! (yes, I did that too.)
In reviewing the list, I have a pretty good start on a lot of the badges, so in honor of you all, my loyal readers, my first badge submission will be “Each Other – Blogging”.
How did I do? Here’s my submission. Now I wait…..
