All About Me – My Completed Homework

I was given an assignment to complete by friend and colleague, Tia Henriksen, who in turn was challenged by really cool guy Dean Shareski. Read Tia and Dean’s posts here!

First,  thanks for this homework Tia. I have absolutely nothing else to do tonight 🙂

Second, here are 11 random facts about me:

  1. My parents are both Italian immigrants – and I am VERY proud of them!
  2. I have 4 sisters and no brothers.
  3. I went to art school out of high school.
  4. I once owned a Triumph TR7 – yes…life is about making mistakes.
  5. I met Canadian Prime Minister Jean Cretien and Canadian astronaut Robert Thirsk on the same day.
  6. I drove 14,500 kilometres across Canada and back with my family in 2007.
  7. I love dogs.
  8. I never planned to be a teacher. When I was a teacher, I never planned to be an administrator.
  9. I camped overnight at the peak of Golden Ears Mountain last summer with my son, Sam.
  10. When I was in grade 3, my school burned down with me and all my sisters in it.
  11. Some might consider me a picky eater.

Next up, I am to answer the following questions from Tia:

  1. What are your favourite and least favourite colours? My favourite is BLUE and my least favourite is TURQUOISE.
  2. What was your favourite subject / least favourite subject in school? My favourite subject in school was MATH and my least favourite was READING (Sorry – I have to be honest 🙂
  3. Where were you born? Vancouver.
  4. What was your lowest grade in your post-secondary classes? In what class? I got a PASS in some computer programming course that made absolutely NO SENSE to me! I think I got the pass so the teacher could get rid of me!

  6. What is your favourite childhood memory? Summers on our farm and playing soccer on the grass.
  7. How old were you when you learned to swim? I was a young adult…but still not great in the water, though I LOVE to snorkel.

  9. What’s your favourite video you’ve watched recently on social media? Just watched WHAT IS BEING CREATIVE and THE ENCOUNTER COLLECTION on Vimeo. Awesome!!!
  10. If you could plan it, what would your last meal consist of? Anything my mom made…hopefully her lasagna!
