Top Ten Tuesday- 10 Things About Me

Okay, I’m actually cheating and reposting a very old post I did- to compensate you’ll get 20 things about me, haha. I would choose these same things so I figured why not repost? Plus, I’m lazy. There. You just learned another thing about me.

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke an the Bookish. Each week a different question is posed and gives us bloggers an opportunity to share our top tens on all different types of bookish topics.

To the Old Post…

After reading Octavia’s post inspired by Consuming Worlds I decided that this might be fun to do. Then with some peer pressure by Octavia and Pili on Twitter I decided I would…so here it goes.

1. I have never been in a physical fight.

2. My P.E. teacher in junior high let me sit on the sidelines and read instead of playing volleyball. Yes, I was that bad.

Dragons of Autumn Twilight  (Dragonlance Chronicles #1)Dragons of Winter Night (Dragonlance: Chronicles, #2)Dragons of Spring Dawning (Dragonlance: Chronicles, #3)

3. My first ‘chapter’ book was Dragonlance Chronicles which contained Dragons of Autumn Twilight, Dragons of Winter Night and Dragons of Spring Dawning

4. I worked in a music store called Warehouse Music to see if it was like the 90’s movie Empire Records. It was not, though still was a blast.

5. I have a bachelors in Communications

6. My first job out of college was at ADV Films working in marketing. ADV Films hired voice actors and produced dubbed over versions of Japanese animes. It was such a fun job and was where I met my husband. While working there I developed and was in charge of the Anime ADVocates program which sent out samples DVDs to school anime clubs. Click here to be embarrassed on my behalf.

7. My favorite anime is Fruits Basket (my first love triangle) followed by Outlaw Star (neither dubbed by my former employer)

8. Now I am a stay at home mom

9. I am a photographer (hobbyist)

10. I used to paint/draw until I found that I loved photography more.

11. I worked in photo-labs in high school and college.

12. I wanted to be a marine biologist all through middle school. I only recently realized I am terrified of the open ocean

13. My husband is an amazing artist (digitally and painting). You’ve seen some of his work in our Lego Cover art feature.

14. I love learning about insects-my favorite being the Praying Mantis. Which is cousins with my most hated insect…the cockroach.

15. I am much braver behind a camera than not.

16. I have a serious case of Wanderlust though I’ve not traveled since having my son.

 

17. My first video game I played was King’s Quest on the old Tandy computer

18. I love the Dragon Age games–Alistair being my favorite game character though Fenris is a close second

19. I forget my age and have to be reminded by my family members

20. My birthday is September 11
