The Story of My Life

When I saw Jenni was doing a "blog every day in May" challenge, I was immediately intrigued, yet intimidated.

I wanted to challenge myself to do it, but at the same time, I tend to cave under pressure. Meeting a deadline, I guess you can say. I love most of the topics though, so I've decided to do a few of them on my own anyway. :)

The first day's topic is: the story of your life in 250 words or less, or one paragraph


Me at 3 years old, feeding pigeons at the zoo

I was born on a hot summer Texas day in July of 1987 to the greatest set of parents I could've ever been blessed with. However, I didn't have the perfect childhood. My dad was an alcoholic and my mom did the best she could. I still love them more than ever. I was lucky enough to find my true BFF at 9 years old. She's like another sister to me. I grew up in a teeny tiny town where my graduating class was only a mere 20 people. In high school, I was very outgoing and participated in every extra curricular activity I could get my hands into. After high school, I dabbled in college (and still continue to do so) and I've also had my fair share of heartbreaks (from those icky boys!). I met the love of my life, online, when I was 21 years old. Afterwards, I attended medical assisting school to get my registration and to get my foot in the door of the medical field. I've been working as an MA at an internal medicine practice for almost 3 years now. I enjoy my job, but I crave more. I live in Dallas, TX with my sweet boyfriend and our yorkie dog. I love coffee more than a normal person should, wine like an alcoholic, shopping like I actually make money or something, blogging and hanging out acting silly with my boyfriend, family and friends. I am a happy, determined, awkward, high strung kinda girl. Let's be friends, yeah?

BOOM! 250 words. Count 'em and weep. ;)

I am loving everyone's stories. I feel like everyone is being so honest and real with them, and I love learning more! I wanted to participate, but if I stuck to 250 words...there would be a LOT left out. Haha

Cute post :)

I did this two years ago and while it was hard being disciplined and blogging for nearly 2 weeks ahead b/c I was on vaca, I ended up being pretty proud of myself. And have not repeated it since LOL

Heather said...

Yes, we can definitely be friends. Now pass the wine. ;)

Amanda Haney said...

I love that pic of Binky!! Your relationship with your boyfriend is totally cute!! I hope you get into nursing school if that's still what you want. :))
