7 Random Things

In honor of 7-7-07 and because I've seen this all over scrappy blog land, here are 7 random things about me:

1. I graduated from high school with straight A's and was salutatorian of my class. The valedictorian had one more honor's level class than me, earning her the right to be first...I do believe I gave a better speech though!

2. I hate bananas...I think it's mostly a texture thing, as I will eat banana bread, but that's about it.

3. In college I was a cook at the Bistro, a student run coffee shop on campus, as well as a member of the band staff.

4. I participated in Academic Decathlon my senior year of high school, earning myself a grade for computers...figure that one out...our team did quite well and I rocked the speech and interview sections! Please refrain from the nerd jokes....

5. I went to 3 universities before finishing my degree. I started at Loyola University in New Orleans, ended up deciding to transfer second semester of my sophomore year, attended Arizona State University for one super easy semester, and finished my degree at Willamette University in Salem, OR. I also changed my degree from Music Business to undecided (leaning towards education), to Music Therapy.

6. I have unconventional pets (thanks to my husband), a rat, Ruby, a turtle, who remains unnamed but usually gets called Tortuga, and several koi in our backyard pond.

7. I once payed $40 (well, Jessie and I split this bill) for a bagel and a stick of butter...long story that involves a third college roommate whom we had many issues with, one being her belief we were constantly eating her food, when in reality we had borrowed a stick of butter and thought the bagels were ours....this did however become a fun mnemonic device for learning polyrhythms for our entire music theory class!

I'm off to play with my sister and have some wine and scrappy fun! Enjoy your day of luck, 7-7-07, which is really just a marketing ploy for casinos and wedding vendors!

Academic decathlon? That makes you sound like seven or ten times the dork.

I like your list!! I knew ALL of those things, although I'll admit I'd forgotten a few of the details. Although not the details of #7. :)

Very creative!!
