I have been tagged by my new Flickr friend Jodyangel. Here are 16 things about me that you may not know. 1. I am an only child though I never felt as spoiled as everyone thought I should be because I am an only. I have always been a hard worker and liked to earn my own money and pay for my own things. I started working at Midway Oh Boy restaurant the summer between my eight and ninth grade year and have been working there part-time since. You do the math...I am now 29. 2. I have had four back surgeries since 2003. My first was a spinal fusion at the L5-S1 level in 2003. In 2004 I had a nerve decompression. In February of 2006 I had a spinal cord stimulator implanted and in June I had the surgery revised. I live every day in chronic pain and see a chronic pain doctor every month at the Cleveland Clinic. I feel fortunate that I am able to get out of bed every morning and that I have a great pain management doctor that treats me very well and is very knowledgeable. Things could always be worse and there is always someone out there that has it worse...I try to always remember this when I have a difficult day. 3. I have five tattoos. All but my college "tramp stamp" have a Holly leaf theme. My favorite is the one on the right hand side above. I live by that quote! 4. My husband and I DO NOT want to have children. I get annoyed when people ask me "Why not?" I don't mind so much that they simply ask but I get annoyed when they disrespect y opinion. I have never wanted children and with all of my medical problems it probably wouldn't be the best idea. I wouldn't ask someone "Why did you have kids" so I don't expect anyone to ask me why I chose not to. 5. I have a cat named Brandy and she is my child. She is my buddy and is always at my side. She lays on my lap on the couch, sleeps right next to me and often lays on the floor next to the shower waiting for me to get out in the morning. 6. I was a HS special education teacher from 2002-2008. I found out last May that my position was being eliminated and that I would be moved over to the Middle School where I now teach sixth grade. I think I still like the HS age better but the sixth graders are growing on me. 7. I played clarinet from the time I was 9 years old until I was 23. I stopped shortly before my first back surgery because it was too painful to sit in my chair during rehearsals for hours at a time. I played in numerous orchestras at Oberlin College in HS and after. I would love to get back into music some day. I was going to go to college for music but I knew that the job market in this area for music teachers was difficult and I wanted to stay around my hometown so I changed my mind and decided to become a special education teacher. I have never regretted my choice to change majors. 8. I have a bachelor's degree in elementary and special education from Baldwin-Wallace College in Berea, Ohio. I also received a concentration in psychology. I earned my Master's degree in Educational Technology from Baldwin-Wallace as well. I dream of going back to earn my doctorate by the time I am 35. I would love to go into clinical psychology. 9. I am a type-A personality who happens to be a neat-freak, control-freak, perfectionist and probably a little OCD... 10. Photography for me is very therapeutic. I would never go into it for a career but would love to do it part time and earn a little cash. I enjoy working with my hubby on this passion. He has become quite the photographer as well! He shoots Nikon and I shoot Canon...therefore we are a divided household! LOL! 11. I consider my parents Cindy and Paul to be two of my best friends. My husband Howard is my other best friend. My parents are the most kind, considerate giving people I know. They have been married for 35 years and have marriage to envy. I can always count on them to be there for me. 12. I met my husband online but shortly after we found out that he and his family went to the same church as my parents. Not only that...they went to the same service and sat across from eachother. He likes to tell people we met at church and not online. 13. I hate to wake up early and get up as late as possible. I hate primping in the morning and that is one of the reasons why I have short hair. It is very low maintenance. 14. I love salty foods but they don't love me. I blow up like a blimp every time I even look at salt. I love to eat!!! 15. I need to work out and lose at least 10 pounds (preferably 15) in order to fit back into my clothes from last year. I hate that I let myself gain this much weight but am working out daily and watching my food intake. I would love to get down to 135-140 by summer for bikini season. 16. I live a few blocks from Lake Erie and love being by the water. I like to go to the beach daily in the summer and even go down there to take pictures in the winter. I can't imagine ever living inland. I am a "Cancer" through and through. Thanks for listening to be babble. I wasn't going to do this but I figured I needed to get outside of my box and share a little of myself with my great Flickr friends. Thanks for always staying by my side even when I sometimes haven't been the best contact. My job takes up a lot of my time and often leaves me with little time for Flickr.
