5 Things Maybe You Don’t Know About Me

Since Geof tagged me….

5 Things you maybe don’t know about me

1. I have a mild case of scoliosis. Since I was diagnosed as a child, but haven’t had any problems since, I wasn’t sure this still affected me. When I went to an orthopedist for my hip, I did ask about the scoliosis. He checked me and I still have a mild case, but it is so mild it is unlikely to have anything to do with my hip problems.

2. I was in the gifted art program at my home high school. I miss art, often. But I find that I need “assignments” and some form of instruction still to keep it up. The “assignment” need is why I liked the artsy-craftsy challenge so much earlier this year.

3. Santa came early one year. He came to our house and gave me my presents. After he left, I could “see” Rudolph’s nose as he flew away. True story. I was maybe 2 or 3, but I still remember!

4. I was going to work toward two degrees in college. One in Electrical Engineering and the other in Physics. I really wanted to do physics, but I was afraid I wouldn’t have many job options with it. Now I know that’s not true, but I didn’t know that then. In any case, I figured out it would take way too long to work toward both degrees, so I picked engineering. I think between the two though, I chose the right one for me. Even if my reason back then was flawed.

5. I’ve been overseas once. I went to Italy my senior year for Spring Break. I loved it! I would love to go back with Rick one day. There are several other European countries I’d like to visit too.

Ok, I don’t know how many of those people did and did not know, but that’s what I’ve got. 🙂
I tag…. Rick and teamwinks. I’m out of people at that. 🙂

Four Words Meme

1. cold
– Our bathroom. I think we’ve got some airflow problems in there (as in the outside air gets in). I need to look at it soon.

2. beauty
– Jessica. period.

3. green
– Envy is the first thing that comes to mind for that. Then I start thinking of Jessica’s desire to sleep. So I guess I’ll say that I envy all of those people (like Eli) that get to take a nap every day. I could use a nap this afternoon (not that I’d let myself slow down to take one)

4. book
– I forgot my book at home today, so I had to find something else to do on my lunch break… thus my response to this meme

And I’m lazy and don’t feel like passing this on. I guess my King Face just isn’t going strong with regard to this meme.

Tagged – 4 words

Becky at TeamWinks tagged me with the four words meme. I’m supposed to respond quickly to each. I kind of cheated since I first read this at 6:30 and my brain was not yet turned on at 6:30! It’s not much better now, but at least a little bit. So, my four words:

1. Photography – I am interested in Photography. Although, perhaps not good at it. However, if I ever get the opportunity to get a Canon Rebel Digital SLR, I definitely would! An expensive camera would make me a good photographer, right?

2. Dream – I wish I were dreaming right now. No really, I wish I were in my large, comfy bed with the covers pulled up to my nose, happily dreaming away. I don’t remember many of my dreams past the first minute of being awake. Too bad, because I know I’ve had some funny ones.

3. Sexy – A canon rebel digital slr? My baby? Yeah, that’s it!

4. Friendship – Friendship is very dear to me. I can say that I’ve been blessed with many friends, who are always there for support and entertainment! 😉 New friendships are always a good thing as well.

And now I’m supposed to tag 4 people. Who to tag? I don’t normally do this, but I will this time just for fun.
1. Ashley
2. Misty
3. Geof
4. Rick

plus a bonus extra tag to anyone else who wants to respond.

Your words:
1. cold
2. beauty
3. green
4. book
