8 things about me

I’ve been tagged by Tanya at The Motherwear Breastfeeding Blog to tell you 8 things you don’t know about me, so here goes.

1. I spent the first 18 years of my life living in two different houses on the same street. When I was about 12 years old, my family moved from a ranch on one side of our street to a two-story house on the other side of the street. I’m not even sure we needed a moving van since everything just had to go across the street.

2. I was pre-engaged once (and even had a small diamond ring to prove it) to my first serious boyfriend. We were together for 3 1/2 years – from when I was 17 to 21. It didn’t last, and I ended up pawning the ring to buy a ring for my next boyfriend (which also didn’t last). I should’ve just kept the darn thing.

3. I took Polish dancing lessons when I was growing up. And I was darn good. 🙂 Ask my sister. She’ll tell ya.

4. I was a Girl Scout through my senior year in high school.

5. Even though I was a Girl Scout for all of those years, to this day I’m not fond of tent camping. (Much to Jody’s dismay.)

6. During my sophomore year in college, I took court reporting classes. It seemed like relatively easy work that I could do from home (the transcribing part, not the recording part which takes place in court), and made good money. After a semester and a half, I decided that was NOT the career path for me, and it wasn’t as easy as it looked. You gotta be damn fast to be good in that business.

7. I have a horrible habit of being late. I’m sure I will be late to my own funeral.

8. I’ve always secretly wanted to be goth (or at least dress that way).

I’m tagging Heather G., Mama Saga and Melody. 🙂 But if you aren’t Heather G., Mama Saga or Melody and haven’t done this meme yet and feel the urge, do it! Then let me know that you did so I can read more about you. 🙂

  1. Loved learning more about you.
    The idea of moving across the street – one trip at a time. Good grief! I suppose easier in some ways, but – since moving is one of my least favorite trials to have to endure – sounds like prolonged agony.
    I can totally see you going goth. Really. Ever do it for Halloween? 😉
    Last – now you know we’ll all want to see pics of you doing Polish dancing. Cough it up.

  2. We did the same kind of move once – we moved from a townhouse we were renting to one we bought in the samw complex. Kind of crazy, but it worked.

    ‘ve been tagged for the same meme, too – I really need to get on it.

  3. Thanks for the tag…I promise I will do it once I’ve moved! Loved learning more about you.

    I secretly was goth… 😉 And I have always secretly wanted to be crunchy.

  4. My 52 year old Aunt is a goth – she’s got the dyed black hair and funky clothes. And an under 30 British boyfriend who’s in a punk rock band (and she’s quite satisfied that he’s still in England). She’s a very interesting person, to say the least – she got me into the whole UFO scene about 10 years ago.
