7 Random Facts

I got tagged by Joanna. So here, for your reading pleasure, are 7 random facts about me. Turns out, I like talking about myself. :)

1. As a child, I spent most of my time in the backyard collecting rocks, and I refused to smile for photographs.

2. In elementary school, I spent 20 hours a week training as a gymnast.

3. In junior high school, I was cut from the Knowledge Bowl team because I was too afraid to buzz in.

4. In high school, I made the top 10 in the State Math Competition, I went to the national Science Olympiad competition, and I was the colorguard captain. Super geek, in other words.

5. In college, I learned that I pronounce the word “ancient” wrong. I say it as if it has an “x” in it, like “anxious.”

6. Just now, I learned that my pronunciation is acceptable. So there.

7. After college, I won $80 playing the nickel slots in Vegas. Sshhh.

Oh, I'm supposed to tag 7 people and post these rules:

1. Link to the person that tagged you, and post the rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself.
3. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post, and include links to their blog.
4. Let each person know that they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Instead of tagging 7 random people, I'll just tag 5 of my high school friends (ooh, I'm breaking the rules): Amy, Brooke, Lauren, Debbie, and Katie.

If you guys don't feel like doing it, I won't be offended. :)

I didn't know SAIS-R had a website. Wow! When I clicked on that link, I wnet right back down memory lane. What an amazing school, and what an awesome time we had there.

Fun post!

Good little factuals and fun post! (I'll have to come up with some good ones for myself that no one knows...hmmmm...kind of hard).

I think piano was the only productive thing I did as a kid, and you did tons of stuff. (I know you did piano too even though you didn't mention it here.)

I think I might be offended that you didn't tag me.

No, not really.

you didn't look like a super geek in H.S. -- you look cute as always!

Gambling?! I'm shocked. I'd be more shocked if I hadn't taken this picture...


Marie said...

I remember how big of a math nerd you were in junior high. ;)

That colorguard pic is FANTASTIC. I'm stealing it and posting it on facebook because I'm lucky to be standing next to my favorite people!
