Let’s travel down memory lane.

1. Your current home: House? Apartment? Trailer? Condo? Other?
My current home is a house – ranch style, with a basement.

2. Which is bigger, your childhood home or your current home?
I think my current home is bigger than my childhood home…although my yard is smaller.
3. Which is better childhood home or current home? Why?
I think my current home is better now – I like my home, and I’ve made memories here.

4. What was your favorite subject in school? (consider high school, college, grad school). Why was this your favorite subject?
Hmmm…that’s a tough one. I always loved art class, but I also really liked forensic anthropology and Latin.

Art was awesome because I loved to draw, and paint, and sculpt…and I always thought I wasn’t half bad at it.

Forensic anthropology was just fascinating – I don’t think I ever learned so much in a class. I also had the opportunity to meet a coroner who REALLY loved his job…and had the pictures to prove it.

Latin was fun because we did a lot of competitions and it was easy. If things had been a bit different, I might have even become a Latin teacher.

5. Are you currently working in a field that you studied in college?
Yes, I am. Although it’s not quite what I thought I’d be doing.

6. Describe your first job.
My first job (not counting babysitting) was in high school at a fast food restaurant at the mall that we affectionately called “Beef & Barf.”  It was fun, mostly, although I had a real lecherous boss. Running the counter was easy, and if I worked the back it was preparing BBQ pork and beef sandwiches, and wrangling with a deep fryer. The worst thing was when we’d pressure cook the pork roasts, and then have to shred them by hand when they were still hot. All that grease was probably good for my hands, but it was really gross.

7. What was your favorite job and why?
I think my favorite job was as a teaching assistant in grad school. I really liked teaching labs and classes, and I often think it’s something I should have pursued.

Bonus: What haven’t we talked about in TMI Tuesday that you would like to discuss?
Hmmm…in the time I’ve been playing this, there’s been way too many topics to remember! Maybe movies, books, or foods.

  1. Ha! I’ve never thought about the people who have to pull the pork. I hope they used gloves. I’m very sensitive to temperature so I’d be useless at it.
