Why you want me on your Trivial Pursuit team. I have degrees in Psychology, Studio Art (with dual emphasis in Photography and Ceramics), and Literary Criticism. I collected enough credits for minors in Renaissance History, Art History and was just shy in Music Theory and Geology. And yes, I spent an inordinate amount of time in school. As a grown-up I studied Web Design which included HTML and CSS, and I am currently learning PHP. Yes, those are all foreign languages.
Ten Facts you may not know about me:
1. I love to write fiction; genre, chic-lit, don’t judge.
2. The boy has Sensory Processing Disorder, diagnosed at two. Now I am an expert, I can prove it, ask me anything. He also has an A-Typical Tic Disorder, I am not fond of this un-diagnosis.
3. I fancy myself the Music Director of everyone else’s life and my own. My soundtrack making skills are unrivaled.
4. My husband either has ADD or an undersupply of observation, I write about it often.
5. We live with a barrage of food allergies and environmental allergies. I am also an expert in Anaphylactic Shock.
6. I can’t promise I won’t run off with John Cusack.
7. My son might be a pyromaniac. Either that or he will be an explosives expert one day.
8. I followed the Grateful Dead for two years, and probably showered twice.
9. Woody Allen lives in my head.
10. I am a fourth generation photographer and have the daguerreotypes to prove it. Deciding not to live in denial of the fact that Photo Chemicals are Toxic has scarred me forever.
