Awesome August Holidays

Aug 01, 2014

Besides all the crazy, weird and totally bizarre day-long occasions that happen, August is the official month used to recognize Catfish, Golf, Eye Exams, Water Quality, Romance Awareness, Peaches, Foot Health, American Artists, Home Businesses and Inventors. And then there are the week-long observances in August: Clown Week (first week), Elvis Week (second week), Apple Week (second week), Smile Week (second week), Air Conditioning Appreciation Week (third week) and American Dance Week (third week).

No matter what you celebrate, we at Kidzworld wish you a Happy August!

You know what, I have asked a lot, like A LOT of people - every person I have ever interviewed these three questions and you are the first person that answered the question about going back in time - so levelheadedly! (is that even a word??!) What a grounded answer.  love the answers above you too as I think it's a cool way to describe giving advice as we can all use the wisdom of others as perpetual learners but still - very cool answer. I think if you feel drawn towards a helping profession and that is the very best thing for you. Dream big now and you will always have universal help to get to your goal!

Welcome to kidzworld! :D You sound like a really interesting person! ^^ As Kirten said, kw is one of the best places on the internet and..it's just amazing. :'D I'm Sahithi, but you can call me Jelly, as that's what I'm called on kw. :D I joined kw in March 2013, and I'm really glad I did. :')  My answers for the questions you asked :D - 1) Reading. Reading books moves me the most, I really, really like reading. :)  2) Um, I'd tell myself to be more confident, helpful and open minded. 3)  I'm trustworthy. You can definitely trust me. :)  And hey, Deanna, you never answered these three questions yourself. ;D  Yay! Love your answers!! Great job and you are right, so I shall later on tonight :D
