I said in my very first post that I liked all of the 30 day challenges that are flying around the web these days. I already participate in 1 photo challenge & I think I’ve decided to add 2 more, just cause they’re too cool not to. Well, I was randomly surfing the web sometime last week & I found this Blog Every Day in May challenge. I really liked the author & decided to give it a try. Honestly, I’m not really sure about it. I think it might be a bit too ambitious, especially with such a new blog. & I know that in reality, I won’t physically be able to blog every day (due to work & other real life commitments) but I think that I can commit to writing 31 posts based on these prompts. So, without futher ado, here is
Day1: The story of your life in 250 words or less (or one paragraph… no one will be counting your words… probably)
I live in the area where I was born & grew up. My brother is about 4 years younger than me. My birthday’s September 5 & I was really excited to go to school when I was little (I started kindergarten on my birthday!). Looking back now, I realize I was pretty geeky all growing up, but I didn’t think I was at the time. I had a group of friends & that was enough for me. High school was not like all those movies that were popular (10 Things I Hate About You, She’s All That, & so on). I know that we had our cliques, but we didn’t have any Mean Girls. All throughout high school & even middle school, I wanted to be an elementary school teacher & planned on it. I went to college 2 hours away from home (a state school but not that far away & in a different telephone area code, those were my main criteria). Anyway, I was at college & started taking some of the teaching classes & I decided it wasn’t actually the field for me. I knew I needed a major but I couldn’t decide. Eventually, I decided on Psychology, mostly because the classes were interesting & I did well in them (not really thinking about my career goal). After graduation, I went back to working as a Pharmacy Tech at my local Rite Aid, where I had been working since high school. This got old pretty quick. After a couple detours, I ended up working with AmeriCorps for 6 months. After that, I basically fell into my current job as a catering & concession manager. I had worked a hot dog stand for 2 years & got a promotion literally by being in the right place at the right time. & that’s where I am now. Working at an arena & living with my wonderful boyfriend (our story has some detours & wrong turns too, & like the quote says, I like our story best)th). Sometimes, I’ve had what seems like a million things going on & sometimes it seems like nothing is happening. Now I’m in a place where I’m trying to truly find my happy pace.
