Today I’m going to do the very first prompt, which I missed:
Day 1, Wednesday: The story of your life in 250 words or less (or one paragraph… no one will be counting your words… probably).
I was born in mid-September in 1986 and I lived in Yardley, PA for the first 9.5 years of my life.
My brother came three years and three months after I was born, and my sister followed him three years and four months later. My family’s dog, a lovable multi-colored mutt, was my best friend. Unfortunately he was hit by a car when I was about seven. He was thirteen.
I was homeschooled until December of 1998, when I was in the middle of sixth grade. In 1996, we moved to New Jersey. I made friends in school that I am still friends with today.
I danced (ballet, jazz, and a brief flirtation with tap). I sang from age five (Kindermusic) up to… now, actually. I thought maybe I would go to performing arts high school, but I ended up staying in regular high school. Then I went off to college where I majored in math and econ.
In college I met my future husband at age nineteen.
Since graduating I have had probably 6 jobs. I worked for a federal institution (twice), I taught and tutored math, I worked at a web startup out in CA, and now another web startup here in NYC (I left and then came back). I never thought I would be a programmer but that is what I ended up doing.
I became a yogi in 2008 and completed my teacher training in 2011.
We adopted a cat in 2008 and then another one in 2009.
I got married in 2010.
That’s all I got, and that’s 249 words.
