Thanks to Harold Watts, I have been officially Meme'd. Whatever that means, I thought. I figured it out, and I have been trying to follow the meme's for a few weeks now and was quite surprised by all the wild and fascinating lives others live out there. I mean, we have a Real Estate agent who backpacked across the nation on a greyhound bus, an agent who travels the world, and one who rides elephants. I, unfortunately, can not compare. There isn't much about me that I haven't already said on my blogs, and nothing that would surprise anyone. But, I shall do my best.
The only time I have ever been east of the Mississippi (or Texas even) was a week long visit to Washington DC for Citizenship Washington Focus with 4-H when I was a Junior in High School. I participated in 4-H from the time I was 9 until I was 19, winning best demonstration day as a Junior (9 years old) and Senior (14 years old), and various other competitions (including the Washington Trip) and was part of a youth council for JOLT, a Summer Youth Camp for Arizona 4-H Teens. "I pledge my head to clearer thinking...."
I was part of the winning team for Arizona's 1995 Parliamentary Procedures for Future Business Leaders of America. I also placed in other various business skills from communication skills, and typing, transcription to Business Interview. I guess I was born for business :)
In 5th Grade, when everyone chose their instruments the first day of Band, I chose the Oboe. The other kids said it sounded like a dying goose (especially playing on plastic reeds until you play well enough for wood reeds). I kept playing the Oboe until college, where I did play a solo for Spring Concert and Tour. It did not sound like a dying goose. I also played the tenor sax and percussion for marching band and jazz band, and the violin through private lessons and group orchestras. My best instrument was my voice though. I sang Soprano and wanted to go on to be an Opera Singer. Marriage and kids didn't fit the touring Europe lifestyle so I gave that up.
I started chatting on IRC (Internet Relay Chat) in 1995 under the nick "Huny", and had quite the amount of IRC friends from all over the world. I actually attended a few IRC Undernet parties (punch and cookie parties, tame for what I consider parties now days :P) and was actually engaged to a guy I met (and met in real life) over the internet. I was 17, give me a break :) Let's just say that people are a lot more honest about who they are now days then before digital pictures, and webcams! Before IRC, I was an avid PenPal to friends in China, Austria, and all over the U.S. I don't think there has ever been a person I couldn't carry a conversation with.
My picture on my real estate website doesn't look like a home, it looks like a quail. That's because it IS a quail! When I was born my mother used to put "dippity doo" in my hair and make one giant curl on top. My grandfather starting calling me "quail top" because of it, and it stuck. So the quail is my little "symbol" for life.
P.S. Somehow I erased my website last night after I wrote this, but I'm working on getting it back up! Sorry!
So there you have it! Not earth shattering, but I suppose interesting none the less.
And so I hereby declare the Next Three Meme's (I am just trying to find those who haven't been Meme'd)
