7 Things Meme

I started this blog as a class assignment, and to be honest, I hadn't decided whether to continue now that the class is over. But then, two things happened. Paul Blogush linked to me in a blog post, and Wendy Sigele and Valaina Maher tagged me in the 7 things meme that is spreading around the blogosphere. So, I figure I can keep blogging...for now!

So, here it is. Seven things you may not/didn't/don't need to/don't care to know about me.

  1. I never wanted to be a teacher. After college, I went to Japan to teach English and fell in love with teaching and learning.
  2. I am NOT a shopper. I really really don't like it unless I get to go to my favorite store, Anthropologie, and not worry about price tags. (But that doesn't happen often, or ever.)
  3. When I want to forget about life, I play Rachmaninoff preludes or anything in a minor key on the piano. I'd rather take out a loan for a Steinway piano than for a car (but haven't done either yet.)
  4. I've lived six months or more in Australia, Japan, and Mexico (and of course my home country!)
  5. I went to Mardi Gras in New Orleans once.
  6. My sister is my best friend.
  7. I still have my "blankie" from childhood. Friends tease, but on the cold nights in Japan and Mexico in apartments without central heat, it made a great head warmer.
I tag Theresa White, Pam Nielson, Jennifer Dorman, and my friend Monna.

I think it is great that you and your sister are close! By the way, I'm glad you have kept up blogging and you are in my Google Reader so I don't miss any of your updates.
