I've been tagged!

I've been tagged by Laeitia of Laetitia's World , so here are the rules:
1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Write 6 (or more) random things about yourself.
4. Tag 5 people at the end of your post and link to them.
5. Let each person know they’ve been tagged and leave a comment on their blog.
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up.

But in between you also have to write something about yourself, something most people think, they don’t know about you. If you don’t want to expose your darkest sides – show only the sunny side of you, maybe they never find out the other stuff. So here goes, some of my pet hates and some of my joys!!!

1) I am an outdoor girl and I love to take long walks with my friends and, if nobody wants to join me, my dog!
2) I love to hike in the mountains, but that's no secret.
3) I really hate feeling helpless when so many people live in poverty and misery and I can't do anything about it.
4) I studied to become a highschool teacher but I did not finish my studies. It took me a long time to break the taboo and talk about it.
5) I hate myself when I notice that I am sooooo honest, that I aaaaalways speak the truth, when I lose my sense of humour....
6) My personal freedom is most important to me. I could never take a bank loan, for instance :)

I tag the following persons:

1) Ayamlin at A Comfortable Vacation 2) Martin at
jours chômés 3) Susan from The Irish Photograph 4) Mary Beth at Small City Scenes of Stanwood 5) Jorge from Vaggabundices 6) Marina from Marina's Life and Family

Hi Maria :)

I liked all the points you have mentioned especially points 3 and 6

Here are some statistics on poverty : One third of deaths - some 18 million people a year or 50,000 per day - are due to poverty-related causes. In total 270 million people, most of them women and children, have died as a result of poverty since 1990. Those living in poverty suffer lower life expectancy. Every year nearly 11 million children living in poverty die before their fifth birth day. 800 million people go to bed hungry every night. Poverty increases the risk of homelessness. There are over 100 million street children worldwide.

Some evils of borrowing apart from losing your freedom are:
Predatory lending is one form of abuse in the granting of loans. It usually involves granting a loan in order to put the borrower in a position that one can gain advantage over him or her. Usury is a different form of abuse, where the lender charges excessive interest rates. Credit card companies in some countries have been accused by consumer organisations of lending at usurious interest rates and making money out of frivolous "extra charges".

Have a good day :)

Fascinating comments about YOU, Maria! It was fun to read them! Yes, being honest is is not wanting to have the burden of a debt! And worrying about others less fortunate! You are a very special person in this world, I think....and I am glad I "know" you!

I'm ready for it since Friday when I first saw it! But I've just made the time for it...! Thanks for choosing me for it! Honesty really hurts sometimes but it's better to be honest than a liar!
