What I Like About You

When I was applying to college a few years ago you know how they ask you about your whole life and your extracurricular activities. At the time I felt like I had a hard time coming up with a lot of things but being back around children who are involved in activities and discovering their talents reminds me of all of the things I have done in my life when I was younger and talents I have explored.

  • I used to double dutch
  • I used to be an awesome hula hooper
  • I was involved in African dancing
  • I used to be in chorus (but I knew I could not sing and left eventually)
  • I was in band from 4th grade through high school graduation (the flute is my first love) I accomplished a lot with the flute because I was good at it and loved it but unfortunately since I didn't want to make it my career I didn't have time for it after high school
  • I played the piano since 7th grade and it is absolutely my second love, the same situation happened with me not playing after high school, well I guess that's not 100% true. I may have let it slip at my job that I play and I've been asked to play the chorus accompaniment for my kiddies at the school I work at, Also I have a song I used to play for NYSSMA tattoo'd around my leg so yea... there's that
  • I was on the step team in high school. Loved it
My point is being a teacher can make one be reflective in many ways. :)
