I don't know about interesting, but here we go....
- I played the flute from ages 9 - 18. Despite countless hours of musical training, practice and education, I still consider myself to be tone-deaf and the only song I'll sing in public is Happy Birthday - and only with others.
- I was a straight A student (with a stray B here and there) whose GPA was brought down only by gym class, and the fact that I passed notes in Science. I rarely brought books home to study and did most of my homework on the school bus.
- When I was a tween, my entire wardrobe (with the exception of jeans) was pink. Every. Single. Item.
- I collect Barbies, but am currently looking at selling my collection on eBay. If you're interested, email me.
- I was born with one leg longer than the other.
- I've had arthritis in my knees since I was fifteen.
- Nuns hate me. I'll elaborate in a future post - but seriously, they hate me.
- I've never been drunk. I had one full beer in college - and promptly threw it, and my dinner, up in some random guy's bathroom. Let's hear it for higher education!
- I get text messages with updates from CNN, ESPN and The Weather Channel. I set them up several years ago, and no longer need them, but can't remember any of the passwords to change the settings.
- I wrote my first story in pencil when I was eight years old. At thirteen, I won a fiction-writing contest for a story written entirely from a baby's perspective. In college, I won awards and was asked to present academic papers. Then I graduated and needed a job. "Life is what happens while you're busy making other plans."
- I put up a Christmas tree in every room of my home. Each is decorated to match the room where it sits.
- When I was about five, I had a terrible experience in a daycare center. I ate cooked carrots for the first time and got sick. True or not, in my mind the carrots caused the sick, and to this day - I don't eat 'em.
- I've never been on a legitimate roller coaster, though I am determined to one day work up the nerve.
- I studied for four years to earn the CPCU designation. In insurance land - that means a lot. It also means I get a little alphabet soup on the end of my name, when I like.
- I long ago accepted that I am a flawed person. The thing I like least about myself is my appearance - it's the one button a person can push and really hurt my feelings. Because of that, sharing my photo is not something I do lightly....
