Alright, I'm back with this week's edition of 5 facts.5 foibles from my life. I figured since last week looked at my childhood.. this post could focus on the next phase of existence called 'school years' (ugh, I'm already breaking out in a cold sweat!).
Fact #1: I am terrible at math...
(which is why I love that quote: "Math: I'm not a therapist, solve your own problems!")
Foible #1: I had tutors try to help me with this issue - I can remember really wanting to learn subtraction with the one tutor that used Smarties for counting!
Fact #2: I always loved sports(gym) and art.
Foible #2: This fact made me an 'artsy.tom-boy'... a strange combination really, so I never fit one clique in school - just happily drifted amongst the jocks. the artists. the wallflowers....etc.
Fact #3: In highshool I started colouring my hair.
Foible #3: When I was cheap/lazy I would simply bleach it... without putting 'blonde' back on to it... so it glowed like a rubber duck and felt like straw. I then played with shades of plum, neon red, fuschia, orange, blonde, black, mahongany for the next few years. (Let it be known, once this current baby is out.. I want a shot of crazy colour again!). ;o)
Fact #4: I got my nose pierced in highschool (and still love it).
Foible #4: So... the piercing may have taken place in a bathroom stall IN the highshool... but you didn't hear it from me!
Fact #5: I have a Bachelor of Arts in Ministry (B.A.M!)
Foible #5: the longer story is ... I was going to go to an arts college... but figured I should do one year of Bible college to make sure I knew what I thought I believed = four years, and a degree, later I finally figured that out better!
So there's a few more tidbits from my 'growing up' days... stay tuned for next weeks top five list!
Thanks for hearing my confessions,
