Today's prompt: It's All About You.
Gulp. I already did this back in January. On my birthday, I posted 31 random facts about me. Today, I'm posting a list of a few things I said I'd never do (that I ended up doing anyway):
- Marry Drew. In college, one of my friends would ask, "Well, what about Drew? You could marry him." To which I replied, "I'm NOT marrying Drew. We're just friends." Sometimes I still laugh and think, "I gave birth to Drew's children, and I would not have it any other way."
- Become a nurse. When I started at college, I thought I was going to be an elementary education major, but I realized teaching was not something I wanted to do. Someone asked, "Well, have you considered nursing?" I laughed at the thought, "No, I'm not good at science or math. Bodily fluids.. bleh." (Yes, I'm kind of like Sarah in the Old Testament.)
- Move to the DC Metro area. I'm a small town girl and had no desire to move to DC. The biggest place I wanted to live was in Pittsburgh, but then I became engaged to a grad student studying at a university in Washington D.C. The rest is history. I still have not lived in Pittsburgh.
As you can tell, I should take the advice of Henri in An American Tail, "Never say never again."
What about you? Is there anything you said you'd never do and then that thing happened?
