Things you didn't want to know and more about MEME!

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Coastal Area Partners

My day started off as usual yesterday. I checked my email but found something unusual. It's not unusual to receive an email from someone on Active Rain. However, this email was different. It's said that I've been MeMe'd. I remember hearing of this before. I wasn't sure if it were a good thing or not. So I went to Active Rain for more information. So, someone wants to know more about me. Five facts about me that no one knows, to be exact. Well, here goes! surgery

Fact # 1: Since I was 8 years old, I always wanted to be a Thoracic Surgeon. I went to college with the intent to be pre-med. Life has a funny way of changing things on you. I ended up majoring in Chemistry instead.

Fact # 2: I was the first person in my family to attend college. It was an exciting time for my family. But it put quite a bit of pressure on me. They were all counting on me and I wasn't about to let them down. I did, however, learn through the course of my college career that I would not be able to make everyone happy all the time.

Fact # 3: I was born and raised in a little Southwestern Pennsylvania town called South Park. I stii have not seen the cartoon South Park though. I doubt it was based on our little place.

Fact # 4: I originally got into real estate because I thought it would be easy and that I would be able to make my own schedule. Boy, I was wrong! However, I did fall in love with the job still. I am a people person and love to help in any way. This career was actually a perfect fit for me. Beach

Fact # 5: I was offered full scholarships to several colleges for Volleyball. I haven't played competitively since college, but still love the sport. May be we need Active Rain Group Volleyball teams.

 

I hope you enjoyed getting to know me. Here comes the fun part for me now. I get to pick three people to be MeMe'd by me. So, without further ado. My choices are:

George Tallabas

Klaus Nicholson

Matt Locke

How does an 8 year old know what a Thoracic Surgeon is? I'm 40+ and don't know what that means.

Yeah, the term makes me think of thorax, which is part of a bug's body.

Is a thoracic surgeon one who works on ants?

Christy, what perfect timing.  You commented on my blog about welcoming new ActiveRainers, and I wanted to get to know you a little better - how better to do that than to read your meme.  'Glad you chose real estate, and I look forward to reading more of your posts.

Well congratulations on being the first member of your family to go to college and that is something you should be proud of!

As for South Park? It is based on a town in Colorado and if you have avoided to this point, don't watch one!

Thanks for information about yourself and good luck to you in the future.

P.S. - Thanks for the slogan with me and my wife...May have to steal it!
