TT - things you might not know about me (some good some bad!!)

Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Things most people don't know about me...some good, some bad...

These are all things that I have worked on and am working on in my life...

1. I turned down a trip to Libya with a prominent white rights leader (and I am darn glad that I did!!) (This was a phase that soon ended when I believe God spoke to me about what I was really here for! I might share this sometime, if you ask me nicely;-)

2. I hated school, kids made fun of me and I only went to get it over with

3. I was .5 of a percent away from honour role one year and they didn't let it "slide"

4. I dropped out of school with 4 credits left to get, but I worked twice as hard to finish, after the fact, in order to graduate with my class

5. I hitchhiked across Alberta with my then boyfriend, now husband and ended up in Grande Prairie and pregnant!!

6. I am freaked out to talk in front of large crowds of adults!! (working on it...S-T-R-E-T-C-H) (self-esteem being worked on as we speak)

7. I was raped by a friends boyfriend (and I have dealt with this one...praise God!!)

8. I had my eyebrow and bellybutton pierced, it was a huge rush and my head was shaved!!(the piercings have since come out, but the scars remain for life!!)

9. I went to summer camp and me and 2 guys were going to pierce each others ears. I was the only one who went through with it (it was supposed to be a "bonding" moment!! When I got home about a week later, my ears were so infected that I had to go to the hospital and get them manually removed by a doctor. Do not ever try this when you are 13!!)

10. I used to smoke (believe it or not, people didn't know!!), drink a lot and do drugs...(not anymore!!)

11. I used to race BMX bikes for fun, I placed third in Ontario for 12 year old girls one year (out of 3!!)

12. Princess, my daughter, is named after my best friend who died in a car accident when she was 15

13. I moved out of my parents house when I was 17 and 2 weeks later moved back in. My parents helped me move out and helped me move back too!! (I loved how they handled the situation)

  1. I didn't know #11 Cool! I used to ride BMX bikes too, go over ramps and jumps etc. Just ask my drummin cous, we got our picture taken for the front cover of the newspaper once...

    thanks for opening up a bit more and allowing me to stretch you....

  2. Wow - and I thought I was wild in my young years...Isn't God great how He can use all our experiences to bring us closer to Him - although they might hurt very much, but at the end He uses them for the good...
    Thank your your openess.

  4. I can relate to #7 but it was just a guy. :/ Thankfully, I am at peace with it now to.

  5. Haha, I just reread the ear piercing one and it sounded like I had my EARS manually removed...No woories, I still have my ears but the earrings were removed from inside my ear lobe!! This was done very, very early on Thursday morning, I should really wait until I am truly awake first!!
