I have met some people who think their lives are really boring but I think that if you ask them the right questions, you'll find that it's not true. However, that's no guaranttee that you'll actually be interested in my life no matter how amazing I think it has been thus far. But if you are, then now is the time to find out what you want to know. Here's a few things you might not know about me:
1.I've been writing poetry since I was seven years old. I've had my work published in a few magazines over the years and I've even won a few national poetry contests.
2.I grew up in a family of twelve kids. My mother had four kids with her first husband and my step-dad had eight with his first wife.
3.I am a hard-core Jazz enthusiast.
4.I LOVE hummus. I can eat the stuff for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. There is no better food on the face of the earth.
5.I can not dance, not even a little bit. The German is a better dancer than me and so is my daughter.
6.Of all the places I've lived in my lifetime, I loved Madison, Wisconsin most of all. I'm hoping to move back there in a few years if all goes well.
7.I am a video game fan-girl. I play video games on my computer almost every day that I'm up and about. Yeah, that's right. I'm one of those geeky girls with glasses who wear jeans and tennis shoes almost everywhere I go and would gladly sell her right arm for the opportunity to have gone to the E3 this year in order to get a look at the new games line-up for myself. My favorite game is The Sims and I have absolutely every expansion pack from the first and second series.
8.I used to have a birthmark on my back in the shape of a marijuana leaf. Even my doctors said it looked like one and people often asked me if it was some sort of tattoo. It's unrecognizable now due to the radiation treatments and surgeries on my back.
9.I am an NPR junkie and I think that Clear Channel is of the devil.
10.I am a "collector". I collect dolls, rocks, traditional clothing from different countries, and books of Persian and Arabic poetry.
Well, that's it for now. If there's anything else you want to know, feel free to ask and I'll be glad to talk about it. My life is pretty much an open book.
