What was your first “real” job? If babysitting children outside the family doesn't count , then my first job was as a custodian in the dorms of a local college the summer that I was 16. I worked 3 days a week that summer. I was a custodian for a few years during the summer, school breaks, and semesters...so basically, what they say is true. "Once you start working, you don't stop!"
Where would you go if you wanted to spark your creativity? A church nearby me has a peaceful area with a lovely flowing fountain and wooden benches to sit on, so I've been there a few times. I also used to enjoy the "top of the hill" from where my parents live. It housed a bench, broken many times by teenage boys but still a place of quiet overlooking the 100+ acres of fields my next door neighbors own.
Complete this sentence: I am embarrassed when… run a yellow light and it turns red when I'm still in the line of vision...whoops!
What values did your parents instill in you? A healthy sense of following through with discipline. One time, when I was about 10 or 11, I defied my parents...probably called them names, though I don't remember that part. I was a very strong willed one, and I'm sure my parents had given me a warning or two. I kept on challenging them and was then informed that I'd lost a trip to the lake with the family and my grandfather. I was not a happy camper, pleaded that I would "be good!!!!" at the lake, but it was a lost cause. My parents stuck to their guns, and the family took off for a wonderful day of fun. My mother and I stayed home and I remember it to this day!
Name 3 fads from your teenage years. Long skirts, long, flowing, curly hair, and no pierced ears... I was a Catholic, homeschooled gal, and this was the rage, if you could call it that. Around age 16 or 17, I started wearing short(er) skirts (or pants to church...gasp!), cut my straight hair to my shoulders, and by the age of 18 had 7 ear piercings. Ha.
