Day 1: The Story of My Life

In an effort to write more frequently, I decided to take part in the Blogging Every Day in May challenge. I know I’m coming into it a few days behind, so I’ll be posting quite a few things in the next couple days as I get caught up. 

But anyway, without further ado, here’s post number one, the story of my life in 250 words or fewer:

I was born on July 25th, the fourth of six children. I grew up in a small town in Wisconsin, and was home-educated all the way up through high school. I attended college for two and a half years at a private Christian school in Chicago, but then dropped out because I didn’t like my major (Political Science), had lost motivation, and didn’t think that spending $30k/year on an education I didn’t really want was really worth it. I lived in Chicago for another year after I left school, and then moved to Minneapolis. I spent five years in Minneapolis, and had probably the majority of my formative young adult life experiences there – making and losing friendships, dating, job changes, etc.  After five years in Minneapolis, I moved to Las Vegas for a year. I lived with my youngest sister, who was attending school for interior design, and spent a lot of time at my older sister’s house, hanging out with her, her husband, and my two beautiful nephews.

I have gone through a lot of ups and downs in my life, and a lot of very difficult experiences. However, each experience has taught me something, and I know I am a better person for having survived each challenge.

So that’s me in a nutshell! J What’s your story? 


I'd love to know what you think! Leave me a comment - it will make my day!
