I: Interesting facts about you
Honestly, I've shared SO much about myself on my blog that it was difficult to think of anything interesting about myself to write. So I thought I'd share five facts. I hope they're somewhat interesting.
1.) I'm absolutely stoked to be a member of the Fighting Texas Aggie class of 2015. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!
2.) I'll be taking sign language as my foreign language in college. I'm very excited. I've always wanted to learn sign language since I got the chance to minister to a deaf little boy at an inner city ministry where I live. His mom had never bothered to teach him sign language and his elementary school didn't have the tools to communicate with him. Despite his struggles to communicate, he was very smart and very sweet.
3.) I have been to twelve countries outside of the United States: England, France, Italy, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Holland, Canada, Mexico, Kenya, Jamaica, and Haiti. I've also been to Grand Cayman, but I don't think it's considered to be its own country.
4.) I'm almost always cold. At work, I'm constantly wearing a jacket and jeans, even when it's over a hundred degrees outside. In my room, I'm always curled up in a thick quilt, even if my thermostat says it's 77 degrees in here. When I take my temperature, my average body temp is about 96 or 97 degrees, which apparently is possible.
5.) On May 5, I had LASIK surgery. It was one of the best things that ever happened to me. For the first time in almost fifteen years, I can see without assistance. I can drive without help. I can swim without my contacts bothering me. I don't have to try to remember to take out my contacts each night before bed. I don't have to worry about contact allergies all the time. I feel like my eye surgery was a miracle from God. I can see!
