She was lucky enough to live for 27 minutes without me... I was never given such a privilege. But my life wouldn't have been the same without her. My mother gave birth to twins on May 19, her oldest, Abigail, at 6:03, and her youngest, me, at 6:30. We were both unplanned but we turned out to be pretty cool mistakes (only exception being we have cost a lot over the years and we are almost always arguing).
When I was in the 8th grade, a kid fell on my ankle during P.E. and tore ligaments in my ankle. It left me on crutches for over two months (my ankle still gives out all the time because of this injury). Thanks to the help of the physical therapist I had, I was able to regain most of the strength in my ankle and get back to running. She inspired my future career.
I took three years of French and fell in love with the language and the culture. Some of my favorite songs are in French (including the one linked) and some of the prettiest poetry I have read is written in it. It's a dream of mine to be able to go to France some day in the future.
I run track in the spring. I'm a sprinter, not a long distance runner like my sister, though I typically stick to high jumping.
I've worked at the Bedford Arby's for over a year now. It's not my dream job but it pays (very well) and I've had the chance to meet so many amazing people, most of which are over 50 years old and consider me their granddaughter. Believe me, there is nothing I'd rather be doing with my life than trying to get people to correctly pronounce "gyro" and trying to get customers to understand we don't sell "double quarter pounders with cheese" or "frosties", that we sell Beef and Cheddars and chocolate shakes.
If I go anywhere Italian, there is a 99.8% chance this is what I will get. And breadsticks.
I became the mother of the brattiest cat when I was only 9 years old. She is a beautiful, extraordinarily soft, blue-gray Persian with golden eyes and a white freckle on her left cheek. She has a bad tendency to leave her fur on anything I own that is black and ignores me half the time, yet she still manages to have power over me (and anyone who comes into her home). She does not like dogs and her name, consisting of twelve parts, still blows the minds of many.
