So, I fully acknowledge that I have a very divided group of readers who read this blog on the regular. I have my family and friends who know me personally that read this blog… and then I have a large group of people I’ve never met before in my entire life who read this blog.
I love both groups of super awesome readers.
However, this post is primarily for the latter of the two groups. I kinda felt like doing a “things you may not know about me” post, and while I realize that a lot of the stuff you are about to read is known by my family and friends… it is most likely not known by the rest of you.
So, without further adieu…
1. I played golf for 18 years… and I played competitively for about 10 years. This picture below is from the girl’s Virginia high school state golf championship (I’m second from the right). The rest of the girls in this photo all kept playing golf in college and a few of them are even on the LPGA tour now making a whole lot more money than me. But hey, that’s okay. I just honestly was tired and wanted to play for fun. So, now I play for fun!
2. This picture you see below was my senior picture in high school. And no, it was not a joke. I thought that hair looked awesome. It was awesome, but not in the way I hoped.
3. I was a total dork in college and involved in everything. I tried to make up for being uncool in high school by being overly cool in college. Or something. I was in a sorority, a sketch comedy group, countless honorary societies, class president, and my senior year I was student body president. I didn’t sleep. I drank a lot of Diet Coke and ate a lot of Fun Dip to stay awake.
4. For my first two years after college, I was a high school teacher. And yes, I looked like a high school student. I even was the varsity golf coach… this picture below is me with my golf team. I blend right in, don’t I?
5. I used to be a comedian. I still sometimes consider myself a comedian, I just don’t perform on a stage anymore. I performed sketch and improv comedy for over 12 years… I even dabbled in standup. I quickly realized standup wasn’t fun for me. I love the impulsive nature of improv. Sometimes I consider going back and performing again, but I’m so happy right now, I don’t think I’d be funny anymore. I was really unhappy when I was my funniest. Does that even make sense? I don’t know.
6. When I moved to North Carolina, I worked in radio. That’s how John and I met. He even proposed on the radio.
So, there you have it. Six things you may or may not have known about me. All over the place, I’m aware.
So, now tell me something I don’t know about you! Preferably something super embarrassing. 🙂
