Now… 10 interesting things about me…

1) I wrote my first book in preschool.

2) I love traveling but I don’t like flying.  I would much rather drive.

3) When I was in seventh grade, toe socks were a huge fad, but I couldn’t wear them because I have two webbed toes on both feet (worse on my right than my left though).

4) One of my favorite trips I ever took was to Hot Springs, Arkansas.  I went with my church choir in January 2003 and every night, we went swimming outside in the heated pool.  Also, the insides of all of our ears turned green.

5) I love to swing dance, but haven’t been in ages.

6) I had a poem published in my University’s Arts Journal in the “Best Of” Edition.  No one told me about it though, so I found out because one of my friends came up to me and congratulated me.  I hated that poem.  It was so awful and I’m so embarrassed to admit I wrote it.  I wish they had published the one I wrote about slaughtering a cockroach instead.  That poem is magical and hilarious and probably the best thing I’ve ever written.

7) When I was in high school, my friends and I invented our own tropical island called BanaCoco.  It had a Pirates Hotel, a church named after St. Francis of Assisi, and a bike trail that went all around the island.  I still kind of want to live there.

8) When I was in Calculus my senior year of high school, my teacher went around and handed out applications for kids he thought could pass the AP test.  I didn’t get one.

9) I’ve worked several odd jobs in my life from camp counselor to lifeguard to cashier to wedding photographer.  For the record, camp counselor/lifeguard was both my favorite and the cause of one or two mental breakdowns.

10) When I was nine, I won a goldfish from the State Fair and she actually survived for a year and two months.
