So my friend over at Bits & Pieces has decided she wants to know a little more about me. I’m generally not a meme sort of girl, but I’m making an exception this time. Except I’m not tagging anyone. 🙂
So here’s what I’m supposed to do: “Share seven facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.”
Feel free to comment about which facts about me are random and which are weird. Or maybe that’s not such a good idea. Anyway, here goes.
Fact #1: I once lived on Sunnybrook Lane. Remember the book Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm? Because my name is Rebecca, I was called Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm all the time. Oh, the irony.
Fact #2: I have been kissed by only two people in my life. My first kiss was on my 26th birthday, in 2001. After that day, I wasn’t kissed again until July 4, 2005, by my soon-to-be husband. It was our second date. (I’ll tell you more on our anniversary. About the July 4 kiss, not about the 2001 kiss. Just sayin’.)
Fact #3: I didn’t have sex before marriage. I made this decision about the time I learned about sex. Waiting was difficult, but it was the right decision for me… and for us.
Fact #4: I have a “chin implant.” I had major jaw surgery before my sophomore year of high school for medical reasons. I wasn’t blessed with a well-defined chin. Since they were going to be in there anyway, my parents decided to have them give me a chin. So, technically, yes, I’ve had cosmetic surgery.
Fact #5: I haven’t ever slept straight through the night… or at least not since I was a teeny tiny kid. In fact, I didn’t realize that it was NORMAL to sleep through the night until I was in college.
Fact #6: I worked at the Olympics in 1996. I got the gig through my college. It was a great experience and is how I got my first job out of college. Also, the money I made allowed me to buy my first car, a 1992 Mercury Sable. (Boy, was I stylin’.) I needed a car to do my college internships my senior year, and I couldn’t get a car until I could pay for it myself. The Olympics could not have come at a better time (the summer before my senior year).
Fact #7: In college I struggled MIGHTILY in the two photography classes I had to take for my degree. If you’d told me then that I’d enjoy photographing just about EVERYTHING, and that I would put it “out there” for all of the Internet to see, I’d have said you were nuts.
There you have it.
If you’ve not seen this one and want to play along, please do so, let me know, and I’ll stop by.
