When you were a child…

  1. What did you want to be when you grew up and why?

I wanted to be a writer. So, I saved my money and went to college and majored in Mathematics with a second major in Education. What the?! What’s the matter? It made perfect sense to me…

2. Who was your favorite person to do things with (excluding your parents)?

Yeah right… like I was going to choose my parents. Sceverenia Kubota was my favorite friend to do things with from Sixth Grade on up to High School. She always had the coolest toys and her parents let us have wild crazy parties when we were teens. When you see those teen movies where there is a huge party, Scev’s parties were just like that, sans the music and dancing. We tended to watch videos instead of listen to music.

3. Did you love school or did you hate it? Why? Did that change as you got older?

I loved school. I loved it from the moment that I started until the day I graduated. I still miss it and it’s hard for me to go cold turkey on the school supply shopping in September. I have nothing to shop for, yet I buy school supplies anyway.

4. Was your family close? What were your favorite family traditions?

Mom, Carol, Stacey and I were very close. I would get ready for school every morning in the bathroom with Mom and Stacey. My mom was so cool because she would let us listen to whatever music that we wanted. Mom and I were both morning people and we loved to torture Stacey by singing songs to her. Heh, heh… I’m laughing just thinking about it.

5. Did you think that being an adult would be cool?

No. I was totally scared of growing up because everyone always says, “These are the best years of your life…” I wish I could find every pathetic adult who said that to me and punch them right in the gut. Things just keep getting better the older I get. Sure, there are hard times, but I don’t care about those temporary setbacks. On the whole, being an adult totally rocks compared to the gut-wrenching agony of being a kid and teen.
