Day 1: A Month of Interesting

It's February and it's the shortest month and therefore I feel at least slightly justified in talking about myself. I recently did a "25 Random Things About Me" thing on Facebook and I was surprised at how much I liked doing it and how much I liked reading other people's 25 things. I like to talk about myself. It's one of those things that sort of adds to my social awkwardness.

So in a sort of socially awkward and all-by-myself-out-here spinoff of NaBloPoMo, I will attempt a February MoBloPoMo (that's Molly Blog Posting Month, FYI) of an additional 28 random things about me. I will now attempt to be interesting for an entire month, and hope that what comes out isn't just clever, which is just the idiot's version of being interesting.

My career aspirations have included the following: actress, lawyer, architect, wildlife photographer, commercial artist, fine art photographer, photojournalist, print journalist, writer, and mobility and rehabilitation instructor. I have discovered that my abilities and interests are best suited to a career in research and writing, which is, in essence, what I now do for a living.

Most of the careers aspirations I used to have were abandoned after I discovered how much education I would need to have (I like to learn, I just am not so interested in school, although I did the whole college thing) or that they involved a lot of skills that I never really acquired: math, for example, or being pleasant to extremely annoying people for long periods of time.

I had such a wonderful time with you guys. Max is a doll. I just melted when he told me he loved me too. And then following it up with, "Be safe ..." what a sweetie! I am so proud of you for being all consistent with the blogging. As you might have noticed, I have not been. I'm actually supposed to be blogging now while Michael feeds the baby. So, I better get to that. Good luck with the interesting things. And I still think you'd have been a great mobility instructor. You are the only person (including my husband to this day) who didn't run me into things on a regular basis.
