Day one: 250 words.


One of my favorite bloggers, Jenni, has started a link-up: Blog every day in May
Today's challenge: The story of your life in 250 words or less. 

I was born on September 10th, 1986 outside of Boston. One of my lungs collapsed when I was born, and doctors are pretty “impressed” with the story. I have no side effects other than a small scar and asthma. My parents were not married until I was 19. My childhood was surrounded with family and filled with happy memories of American girl dolls, rollerblading attempts, and playing house. I've been a student at a Catholic school, a private school and a public school. One year, at summer camp I was thrown into a pool and I still can’t look at a body of water the same.  I did well in school, without putting much effort in – but I wasn't a “joiner” which later affected my college applications. High school was marked by 9/11, getting my license the day I was able to, getting my first job at a party supply store, spending a lot of time with friends and moving across the country to live with family for my senior year. I moved back to the Boston area to graduate and began college that fall. I changed my major a lot, and somewhere between dating Sean, working a couple of different jobs, and going to classes -- I graduated with a degree in English. I got a teaching job (at the same private school I once attended), and Sean and I got engaged.  Since then, we've moved a bunch of times, gotten married and are parents to two adorable kittens.

Count the words. There's 250. :)

I can't guarantee I'll get to participate each day, but I'm going to try!


  1. WOW! impressive that you fit all this into 250 words, even though I knew everything already i enjoyed reading :)
