Share Your World … March 27 2017

Does your first or middle name have any significance (or were you named after another family member)?

I don;t have a middle name (total weirdo, I know) but I do have a first name! I was named after Lauren Bacall…Which I think is kind of cool, she was a very cool lady. I try to be that cool, but I fail,lol

Music or silence while working?

It honestly depends, but most of the times I do listen to music, but it does help me focus. I have a couple of playlists on my ipod, depending on what I want to do. Most of the time it really does help and I don’t even usually get distracted, it does really help. The only time it doesn’t seem to work is when I’m already focused on something else.

If you had a special place for your three most special possessions (not including photos, electronics, people or animals), what would they be?

  1. My Mufasa plush that I’ve had since I was a teenager. I bought him from a Zoo and he’s just the right size for cuddling and laying my head on.
  2. When my Pa passed away I bought a bracelet with the money he left me. It has his birth stone in it and I love wearing it when I’m about to go somewhere and I am really nervous.
  3. Anything with Belle from Beauty and the Beast on it. I just love Belle.

The Never List: What are things you know you never will do?

I’m not even sure how to answer this one because i’m a person who often says “Never say Never”.

I am Lauren…The Plant!

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Name that… You!.”

I was named after the now dearly departed “Lauren Bacall”…There are a couple of different meanings for my name, but the most well known meaning is “the bay, or laurel plant”.

When I was younger “Lauren” was a really unknown name, but it feels like every second person I meet now is a “Lauren”. In fact there is another Lauren I know and we are studying the same course, we volunteer at the same Library and NOW we are working casually at the same place.

I absolutely feel like a Lauren, although to be honest, most people call me a nickname MORE than my actual name, but all my nicknames are based on my natural name. I also think my name is probably one of the most misspelled names ever, there are just too many variations!
