My first job was as a bag boy at the local supermarket, I also unloaded trucks. I created my own side business of cleaning lots. I've been a DJ, I've worked security, I was a bar back. At one time as a teen I held down 3 jobs, I always had money in my pockets. I bought my own clothes, my own shoes, and boots. Mommy and daddy didn't buy anything personal for me. My jobs were legal no bad boy jobs. All these years later I'm now disabled body just took all it could. To keep my sanity I write and I have self-published.

    Hopefully it's fine if I revive this topic.  :P I'm sitting up waiting to do some promo, so I figured it'll be a good distraction.

    Note that I couldn't do more than a few in my first go. I'll try and remember to come back and add more as I think of stuff.

    1. I'm open about my various mental illnesses and have been since my first diagnosis in 2010. I suffer from Bipolar Disorder (2), Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder.

    2. I'm openly HIV-positive.

    3. I found my cat, Jezabelle, on Craigslist, after she was shoved into a box and thrown out of a moving vehicle. (She's fine, for the most part. Suffers from some behavioral issues and arthritis at only five, but she's a trooper.)

    4. I wrote my first story at seven and had my first story published at fourteen.

    5. I'm represented by Hannah Brown Gordon at the Foundry Literary + Media Agency.

    6. I would holla for a dolla (or a cheeseburger.)

    7. I'm a big animal lover.

    8. I used to collect books as a teenager (but no longer do due to space limitations in my home.)

    25 Random Things About You
    « Reply #1032 on: July 15, 2017, 08:08:32 pm »
      This seems fun and, I felt, quite interesting, after reading about everyone. So many interesting things about each person...this world is such an amazing place to be filled with so many amazing people. I am astounded at every brief character sketch I have read. It was like I was reading a brief short story after short story. SO fascinating! This was such a great idea!

      So here I go:

      1. I was born an Army brat and bounced from base to base until my father's time in the service ended.

      2. I have a brother and a sister, both of whom I love dearly and are younger than me.

      3. I have two degrees: A B.A. in P.E. and ENG. and a B.Ed. 

      4. Sport was a large part of my life for three decades.

      5. I am a very spiritual person.

      6. I cannot stand the heat. In fact, I abhor the heat. I love the winter and all things cold. Life starts in October. WOO HOO!!

      7. I am gay.

      8. I am working on my first book (and need help so if there are mentors out there, would love to connect).

      9. I love whiskey.

      10. I cannot begin a day unless my bed is made. Thanks a lot, MOM.

      11. I believe in standing up for what is right even if I stand alone; even if that means making amends for my part of a mistake that was made, regardless of the circumstances. I stand for truth, honesty, forgiveness, and goal-oriented progression.

      12. I had a pet goose I named "Soot". No idea why. He was lilly white. Also, I didn't want him for a pet. When he hatched, he saw me first and followed me everywhere. SIlly goose. Was cute at when he was a gosling, then he grew to a full grown goose and pinched the hell outta me ALL THE TIME. I swear, I still have "ECHO WELTS", I swear. We have the last laugh, though. He made a marvy thanksgiving dinner. Damn goose.

      13. My sweet lovey, who I have been with for almost 6 years now, and I decided to follow our dream, loaded all our belongings into storage on New Years Eve, one of the coldest days of the year, and moved in with my folks (temporarily) in order to find a home in another city 5 hours away (2 months later). We did so, have moved, found work, and are now working hard to making our dreams come true: My partner in the music industry and me writing my first book.

      14. I love ice cream. Oh, lordie, do I love cream. I can eat gallons in one sitting. I won't even say a single word, either. I wonder if they have bourbon ice cream....

      15. I love animals. Dogs. My darling loves cats. I don't mind them, but I love the sweet way a dog loves. One day I would love to get some animals.

      16. My heart bursts with pride and love for my nieces and my nephews. They are all very intelligent, athletic, and are talented in their own unique way. I strive to always let them know that success and failures do not define who they ARE as individuals. They are loved in addition to all of that and that they need to embrace BOTH success AND failure because both are important to help them grow into incredible human beings. I hope that my life will serve as an example in encouraging them because they are that special.

      17. I love coffee. A LOT.

      18. At our cabin, my family plays crib (guys vs. girls) for the dishes. It is a place where all devices and electronics are outlawed and board games are boss. Monopoly usually ends up in a full scale wrestling match. Whoever invented that game had no siblings.

      19. I am allergic - Celiac allergic -  to gluten. Totally sucks.

      20. I have epilepsy. One minute I am working on spelling with my nephew over Skype, then next, I was eating at Denny's, and suddenly I'm in the hospital. Weirdest trip ever.

      21. My three favourite books are: (1.) Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving (2.) Not A Penny More Not A Penny Less by Jeffery Archer (3.) The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar WIlde

      22. Last concert I went to was Queen with Adam Lambert. It was spectacular. The arena was packed solid. Next up: Lionel Ritchie and Mariah Carey. The older generation knows how to put on a real party!!

      23. I appreciate kindness in people. It seems as though society is so pressed to be faster, do things faster, we forget to slow down and take a moment and invest in those around us. Sometimes all it takes to change a persons day is a friendly smile or a polite and  friendly conversation. I am learning that more and more every day: investing in the lives of the people who surround me and taking the time to listen to what they have to say. You would be surprised how much better you feel, too.

      24. I cry when my feet are massaged because it feels so good. I can't help it.

      25. From October to New Year's, I am on a high because Canadian Thanksgiving and Christmas are my favourite seasons. It makes me shake.

    « Reply #1033 on: October 03, 2017, 03:00:17 am »
    I have so much in common with so many people here that I will try to only list the things I haven't seen much. This is a pretty fun thread to read through. It's amazing how everyone has something about themselves that really stands out.  :)

    1. I am adopted, and was brought to my hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio at just 10 weeks old. At eighteen, I met my birth mother ("meh" to "aggh!" kind of experience), and just this year I met my birth father (it's been a much more positive experience this time around!). Regardless, I've come out of the whole thing feeling that family is what you make of it, and that bonds mean more than blood.

    2. I was a hard worker during my teens and ended up saving for a down payment on a condo, which I bought at fifteen (with my father's name on the deed, since I was a minor). I have run a successful real estate business ever since, where I am a landlord and do the majority of the property fixes between tenants and otherwise. Writing is my first love, though, so I have scaled back on the properties to focus on my books.

    3. I am a huge car lover. I play all manner of racing games, have built model cars, collect model cars, and go to car museums whenever I have the chance. My favorite toys as a little girl were Hot Wheels. My husband and I plan on visiting race tracks whenever we are near one. My favorite is the Nurburgring, but given my refusal to fly with the TSA in airports, I doubt I'll ever see it in person.

    4. I also love all sorts of machinery and other modes of transportation. I'm a huge fan of trains (and drag my husband to every railroad we can make it to), construction equipment (don't ask), boats, golf carts, you name it.

    5. I am an avid lover of video games. I started gaming when I was three on our family's DOS computer, along with the SNES and Sega Genesis. Today, I have a dedicated gaming room where I have a gaming PC, twelve consoles (including duplicates of handhelds for the hubby), gaming artwork (both professional and my own), weapon replicas, and my collection of a few thousand games stretching back a few generations. Gaming is my top inspiration for everything I write.

    6. I modeled as a teenager. I loved the photoshoots and even loved the runway, though I was too short to be invited to more than one. I got out of the industry after an acquaintance of mine ate tissues to appear thinner (she claimed the tissues would absorb water weight in her gut). Loved the job, hated the industry.

    7. I met my husband when I was 16, and he was 21. At the time, he got made fun of for "creeping" around a younger girl, though in reality, I was the pursuer (because the man is hot!). We met on March 31, 2005, were engaged March 31 the next year, and married March 31 of 2009. We're still in the honeymoon phase, and half of the time we don't know how long we've been married since we just count the years we've been together (much easier that way!).

    8. I am vegan (as is the hubby), and I hate saying it due to the stigma. My dad (adoptive father, of course) is a meat and potatoes kind of guy, and he insists on announcing it to everyone whenever we go out to eat, so I end up having to deflect the questions as he beams with the "isn't it so funny? My daughter and I are so different!" face. But my dad's charming, so he gets away with it.

    9. I went to school for dietetics (nutrition science), and stopped just short of the internship, because I knew it wasn't what I wanted to do. I already had my real estate business by that point and wanted to focus on writing. The parents insisted I go for the experience, which was both good and bad. At least the subject matter was interesting!

    10. Continuing on with the vegan/nutrition thing, I was bullied for it extensively in middle school. Not only was I vegan, but I lived on a ranch with the whole nine yards (horses, chickens, etc., smack dab in the middle of suburbia). I attempted suicide, and spent a Christmas in the local Children's Hospital. Somehow, I not only made it through, but I'm now an exhaustively bubbly person.

    11. I see people listing IQs here, so I'll list mine: 139. The only reason I care about this is that the number 139 has been a crazy lucky number for me my whole life (I finally embraced it after battling with it because of my OCD, which only likes even numbers). When I was tested and received that result, it felt like life was trolling me.

    12. I've been writing books since I was in the mid-single digits. I wrote my first full-length novel when I was nine, and my teacher was nice enough to edit it for me. It was called My Acorn, and it was an auto-biographical account of my relationship with my first pony. I wrote it on a really early version of Word Perfect, and I printed it out one side of a paper at a time. Those were the days.

    13. This isn't really about me...but my husband is a great cook, and he learned out of necessity (I'm too lazy to cook, and eating out is expensive). I'm really good at eating everything he makes, though, so I guess I'm a certified taste tester...?

    14. Adding to the adoption thing...growing up, I had one brother (who was the biological son of my parents). After having met both my birth mother and father, I now have six more siblings. I am the youngest of all of them, adoptive or not.

    15. I have my own opinion on politics but rarely speak of it. I seem to be in the minority here, but I like following people with political opinions that differ from mine just as often as those who think like me. I have a pretty fantastic ability to see things from other perspectives, even if I disagree on what to do with that information. I find that I wouldn't want to have it any other way, and am quite thankful for this.

    16. I have an obsession with weapons of all types, particularly bows. The only thing that has ever been consistently on my bucket list is learning to shoot a bow. My husband and I have various types of NERF guns in the house that we whip out for impromptu battles from time to time, and we have been to the gun ranges before with others. I am an impeccable shot. More than guns, though, I love blades. There's just something beautiful about a well made blade.

    17. I dance while I'm driving...all the time. I've been gawked at it before, but I know that catching others dancing the same way is the highlight of my day, so I don't let that stop me. And before you ask, no, I have never been at fault in a wreck, and I have never gotten a ticket (parking or otherwise).

    18. It's impossible to offend me. My sense of humor is vast and varied, and my best friend has tried repeatedly (and failed) to find the line to cross over the years. Now, he and I just resort to insulting each other for laughs, like normal people.

    19. I rarely cry. What does make me tear up, you ask? Video games. Shadow of the Colossus is one that is understandable, while the Forza Horizon 2 intro is unforgivable. I'm sorry, cars driving in slo-mo to touching music is just too much for this cold black heart.

    20. I have really, really bad arthritis in my knees. I was diagnosed when I was 23. The culprit? Writing. I sat cross-legged for almost a straight 24 hours writing the first book in The New World series, and then wondered why I couldn't bend my legs. Lo and behold, years later, and I'm using Ben-Gay, wraps, and taking medicine daily and hoping it'll solve itself, since I haven't been able to afford health insurance for the past few years. I'm pretty sure I'll need knee replacements by my mid-30s.

    21. I name everything. My computer. My car. Hubby's car and computer. My filing cabinet. Each and every video game console. Every piece of technology in the slightest (a desk fan, for example). Everything has a name. What's worse is that both my husband and I know and remember these names, so we talk about all these things like they're people. Yes, we're crazy.

    22. I prefer salty snacks to sweets. While I like chocolate, I would much prefer sunflower seeds. I'm pretty sure they're the food of the gods.

    23. I love vinegar so much that I've been known to drink the rest out of the bowl after a salad (and I don't use much oil at all). It is one of the few foods that can make me salivate just by thinking about it. I eat it on everything I can put it on. Some of my favorite snacks are full of vinegar (banana peppers out of the jar, marinated artichoke hearts, salt and vinegar chips).

    24. I love Thanksgiving. I love the time of year, the premise, and the fact that it revolves around food. I do not celebrate any other holidays outside of familial obligations (and tried opting out of the others years ago, to no avail).

    25. I am obsessed with rainbows. So much so, that I was teased in school because the others thought I was gay, when I'm as straight as an arrow. I wear a rainbow ring on my wedding finger, buy rainbows on everything, and color a lot of things rainbow in my artwork (as well as in games; I have a rainbow Bugatti Veyron Super Sport in almost every Forza). What is my favorite color, then, you ask? Brown. A deep chocolate brown. *shrugs*

    There it is. I hope to see more of these on here, so I'm not the only one resurrecting a three month old thread.   ::)
