About Me

So, yes, this is from one of those FB tag games, but I think it's a nice, introductory start to me. More to come, I'm sure.

  1. I LOVE my job!
  2. I don't really remember many details about my life before the age of 20. Weird.
  3. I lived in Russia for 6 months teaching English. I went so I could travel after college. I came back wanting to be a teacher.
  4. Half of my family lives in Europe. I think about getting my Dutch citizenship someday because of it.
  5. I used to be a serious Molly Mormon. Now, I'm an atheist. And no, nothing bad happened to me, I just listened to my brain (see 14).
  6. Growing up, I would tell people there was NO WAY I would get married before the age of 24 or have kids before the age of 29. I got married when I was 27 and had my first baby when I was 29. Check!
  7. I used to think that it wasn't fair that my younger sister was born in February and I was born in March. I thought that since I was older, I should have been born earlier in the year than her.
  8. I was Salutatorian of my graduating class, even though I had the highest GPA. They didn't count the final semester towards rank, so the the Valedictorian totally slacked off that semester and ended up with lower grades than me. But I'm not bitter,
  9. I used to play the violin. It's still in my house somewhere.
  10. I can speak a teensy bit of Russian, but my accent is spot-on.
  11. At the age of 2, I only spoke Dutch. Now, I don't know more than 7 words.
  12. I try not to eat meat from the grocery store.
  13. However, I can't stay away from Vietnamese lemongrass chicken.
  14. People who knew me in my "former life" can't understand why I'm not Mormon anymore. I just stopped believing in it. I just can't believe what I don't believe. I can't force myself to believe it. It's all malarkey to me. (see 5)
  15. My first 5 boyfriends all had names that started with the letter J. My husband? E. Phew.
  16. I will always choose to wash the dishes over cooking dinner.
  17. Cold weather is WAY better than hot weather. But I LOVE to work in my garden...
  18. I played varsity tennis in high school.
  19. We bought our first house in 2009. It's awesome. Except when my sink falls off the wall.
  20. Sometimes, I feel REALLY lucky.
  21. I love my life.
  22. I want to have goats someday.
  23. I am VERY pro-choice regarding abortion. I'm also VERY pro-family-planning, so that women don't have to be put in that situation.
  24. I think that being pro-life means being against the death penalty, against illogical wars, and in favor of universal health care.
  25. I am way more political than people expect.
  26. I have a greyhound named Ramona and I love her. If you can adopt a dog, go check out a greyhound. You'll fall in love.
  27. I have clinical depression and anxiety. It's genetic. If you ask my mom, she'd probably say I started displaying symptoms around age 7 or 8.
  28. I hyphenated my last name when I got married. It was my compromise with my husband.
  29. I am VEHEMENTLY against circumcising babies. Eric and I F-I-G-H-T every time the word comes up. Like, clawing at each other's eyeballs fight.
  30. love to dance. But not well.
