Can't fight it

Tagging me is a very smart way of getting me to blog again.
(This is for you Aubrey!)

6 Random Things About Me:
1. I have a mild obsession with flossing, as of late. Anytime, anywhere. Not shy about pulling out the floss. It makes my teeth feel like they're floating.

2. From January 25th 2007 through May 11th 2008 I typed in my journal on MicrosoftWord every.single.day. Consecutively. Every day during that time is accounted for. (Must be honest- I did forget once in a while, when I was camping in the desert wilderness for instance, but I would fake an entry the next day instead.) Shamefully, my trip to Europe totally threw me off and I haven't gotten back into the groove.

3. Since I was homeschooled until 4th grade, when I resumed my education in the public system I was an odd duck. Certified nut. I wore gold knee-high cowboy boots over striped stretchy pants to school. I read thick chapter books during recess. I played the flute during recess. I beat all the kids at math games. I got my first B (on a science test) and had nightmares for weeks that I wouldn't get into college. 5th grade & being in a class with old friends led itself into a pattern of normalcy that I maintained through the next 7 years. But I always felt I carried a "homeschooled aura". (Read: Notable Moments at Home-School Prom)

4. Didn't eat chicken until age 10. From ages 1 through 9 I thrived on cold cereal, peanut butter sandwiches with no crust, spaghetti with butter, pizza without sauce, and dunkaroos. To this day, chicken has been my most prized eating achievement.

5. I have actually been blogging since 2002. Since then, I've written in about 4 or 5 blogs, most of which I can't remember how to find them. But the original, in all of its immature, adolescent glory, can be found here.

6. Some people call me Jennifer. Most people call me Jenn. A select few call me Jenny (e.g. those who've known me since I gracefully exited the womb). Unaware of ever being called anything else.

The End!

P.S. I tag Aaron (again, in case he missed the 1st one), Meagan, Marissa, Kristi, and whoever wants to play.

P.P.S. Happy Birthday, Mom

  1. Thanks for heeding! :) That was fun to read! Boy, could you lend me some of your flossing obsession...that's something I NEVER do! And I didn't know you were homeschooled at all...that's pretty cool. I should try that with a journal....it would be much easier to type on than write one....like I try to do.

    Oh, and I didn't even know blogging was around in 2002! I just figured it out 9 months ago! haha

  2. I gasped when I found out that you stopped writing in your journal. But I guess that is a hard thing to keep up with every day. And I really enjoyed your experiences of going back to school after being homeschooled. I can just picture little Jenn sitting on the grass playing her flute during lunch.

    PS. What does "Tagging" mean?
