Random Facts About Me

  1. I was born in Minnesota in 1985.
  2. I fell off a 2 inch balance beam and broke my arm when I was really young (4 or 5?). As a result, I quit gymnastics. I wish I never did.
  3. I'm pretty sure that I saved a young boy from drowning in a crowded pool when I was 11. No one noticed that he was drowning or that I saved him. The only thing his sister said when she found him was, "Oh, there you are."
  4. I quit playing hockey because I was extremely undersized when checking started; the summer after I quit, I grew about 6" and put on 30 pounds. Again, I wish I never quit.
  5. I had my gallbladder removed when I was 12.
  6. In 5th grade, my teacher showed the class a website that he wrote. I thought I could do it too, so I did.
  7. I swam in high school, primarily butterfly. My 200 IM split times were around 25 seconds, 30 seconds, 1 minute 30 seconds, 25 seconds.
  8. The coach of my high school's wrestling team tried to recruit me my sophomore year. I smiled and told him I was a swimmer.
  9. I tore my meniscus doing the breaststroke. It ended my swimming career.
  10. I almost intentionally hit a canoe when I was wake boarding. It got my brother a date.
  11. I was voted most likely to succeed my senior year. I dropped out of college. Twice.
  12. I enrolled at four different colleges. I feel that the first one screwed me over.
  13. I payed for my junior year of college by playing blackjack on the weekends.

  15. One of my junior high teachers got me my first corporate job.
  16. I want to retire to a resort on a lake or the ocean. Or to a vineyard.
  17. I more than likely have ADHD. I won't get it diagnosed because I don't think it's a problem.

  27. I hate politics. Seriously. The last time I voted was in 2008.
  28. I have an addictive personality. It often results in burnout.
  29. I have a really good memory. It has caused me to lie so I don't come across as a creeper.
