Shamae I read your entire post and loved it! I too have a few more followers so maybe another post about me is due.

So here it goes...

~I hate drinking milk out of a plastic cup. For some reason it just tastes different to me. The cup must be a glass cup!

~My absolute favorite date is to go to dinner and a movie. I have always loved watching movies, but going to the movie theater is seriously the greatest thing. My dream is to be able to make enough money that we can go to the movies every week as a family.

~I feel that I have the potential to be a really amazing person. Unfortunately I am stuck at being mediocre. There is so much that feel I should do or I felt prompted to serve but there is something holding me back. I haven't narrowed it down quite yet, I am sure there are many reasons actually, but someday I want to move past it all and be the woman that I am meant to be.

~I own over 100 cookie cutters. I used to make sugar cookies at least once a month, but it has been a long time since I have made them.

~When I was in Junior High I was so self conscious that I used to change into my gym clothes in the shower stalls. Thankfully the only people that have ever made fun of me for it is my sister. (Love you sis!)

~A few years ago our family wanted to become more self reliant. We have a pretty large yard so we ventured out in getting chickens. Jane and Mini were part of our family for about a year then we had to give them away. They were messy and my family wouldn't eat the eggs. It just wasn't worth it anymore.

~I was a pretty outgoing teenager. I didn't have a whole lot of fear. I worked for a pretty popular radio station all through high school. I was on air a few times and even did a commercial. I was the announcer at many events where I had to get in front of crowds like the battle of the bands, movie premiers, rock concerts, and much more. The best part was being able to hang out with different rock bands when they came into town. I got asked out on a date by the lead singer of 7 Mary 3 (here is a song in case you don't remember who they are), hung out with Queensryche (check out this song to remember them) for a few days. I played baseball with them in front of a crowd of thousands. I got to meet Don Shanks who played Michael Myers from Halloween #5 and Diamond Dallas. Life was pretty interesting back then, but I am so grateful that isn't my lifestyle any more. I am much more shy now.

~I organized a walk-a-thon for the Muzak Heart and Soul foundation several years ago. That was tons of fun but so much work. It makes the JDRF walks more meaningful. I am super excited that I am going to be volunteering with the JDRF this year to help get families excited for the walk. Hopefully I will be helpful to them too.

There task completed Shamae.

Now you know way more info about me than you ever wanted to know! :)

I knew you were a wild one :)

Love your list!!!!! Very strange about the milk...but that makes you YOU...and YOUnique :)

TravelMama said...

Reading about your job through high school made me think how your experiences with those things possibly prepared you for your present and future role with the JDRF. Plus, Maybe you can get 7 Mary 3 to do a fundraising concert ;)

I also feel like I have the potential to be a really amazing person but am stuck being mediocre. I'm guessing most people feel that way. Good thing we have forever to work it out.

Great post!

Stace said...

You know what your problem is though...you are amazing and you haven't even realized it yet. ;)

Love ya!

Reyna said...


Ditto here on mediocracy...but I am TOTALLY fine with it. I am happy.

And I am so with you on the milk thing...it really doesn't taste right. I never heard anyone put it into words though...so never really thought about it.

Thanks for sharing...I am so enjoying getting to know you all as a group...living parallel lives from all over.

There is NOTHING medicore about you, you have always been amazing.

Even after 15+ years, I think the shower thing is still pretty funny.

Nicole said...

I hear you on the plastic cups and milk....yuck!! I will not do it!

very cool life you lead as a teenager, lucky you :)

and you are an amazing person!! But I understand what you are saying.

Holly said...

Don't feel strange about the milk - I feel the same way about water.

mommyoffour said...

Yep, I am with you on the milk thing. It has to be in a glass. My sister thinks it is strange, but it sounds like I'm not alone on this one! :)
