The Story of My Life in 250 Words

Blogging can be hard. Life gets busy, the words don't come, I wonder if my life is too boring to blog about, I watch TV instead, and then I don't write anything. The easy fix would be to stop blogging, but I can't! Has the medical industry given a name to a blogging addiction yet? I think I know a lot of people who suffer from it.

Life may be busy with work and school, but when Jenni posed the challenge to blog every day in May, I figured I'd give it a shot. I may not follow all of the prompts, but I will try to give this blog some extra love this month.

Today's challenge is to tell the story of my life in 250 words.

My fashion sense peaked at age 2.

I was born on September 28, 1984, in San Diego, California. I am the middle child of three to two amazing people I call Mom and Dad. I grew up trying everything from softball to dance to swimming to singing to volleyball, and ultimately, I fell in love with musical theatre. My life revolved around singing, dancing, and shows until I moved to NYC at 21 for an AmeriCorps program. If I am asked to sing something on the spot, nine times out of ten I sing “Orange Colored Sky.” I’ve wanted to be many things: musical theatre actress, city planner, non-profit director, event planner, nursing home administrator. I wish I could do all of them. Now I live in Houston, Texas, with my husband and our cats, Amelie and Boone. We dream of living on 40 acres with farm animals and a huge garden to feed our vegetarian souls. We are vegetarian for environmental, health, and animal rights reasons. I manage a medical office and am in school for an MBA in Healthcare Management. I aim to be fiercely loyal to my family and friends. They have guided me through some really tough stuff including the unexpected death of my high school boyfriend. I surround myself with truly good people and work to be worthy of those relationships. I haven’t been officially diagnosed, but I’m 100% sure that I’m suffering from baby fever. The story of my life is to be continued. I have really loved it so far!

Yeah, that photo definitely isn't helping my baby fever. May I please travel back to 1986 and adopt you? 'Cause holy cow, you are adorable.

Also...loyal is definitely a word I would use to describe you. Thumbs up, sis!

Love you!

I really enjoyed this post, Lindsay- I feel like I got to know so much about you! It's interesting because I will be graduating from university next year and many of your "dream careers" are ones I'm considering pursuing as well. I also dream of having my own little "hobby farm" way out in the country with lots of land... we must be kindred spirits! :)
