4 Jobs I've had

  1. Lifeguard - High School: First Job. I broke my foot running during a shift where the rental group never showed. I was trying to show off and see how far I could jump into the pool. I had a HUGE crush on this boy named Jon. I slipped and pulled a bone out of my left foot. (not bloody, just protruding under the skin) My dad had to come pick me up in my swimsuit and take me to the emergency room. A week later I had surgery to insert two screws and I was on crutches for a month and then had to wear this funny looking shoe/boot thing for another month. I had this job for about 2 years.
  2. Victoria's Secret - ahhh, this one got some interesting looks from boys in college. I actually asked out the boy who worked at the Disc Jokey store across from VS on a business card from VS. BIG MISTAKE. He was more interesting when I was dreaming about him from across the way. I worked here on and off for 4 years.
  3. The INN University Ministries: I LOVED this and don't really consider it a job. I was an intern for a year and spent another year on Sr. Staff. I learned so much about myself and discovered/developed gifts the Lord has given me. I also met Dave during this time while the INN was holding a retreat at the Firs. I met so many fabulous women who are VERY dear to me as not just friends but sisters.
  4. J. Crew - I was a sales associate for 2 months and worked up to assistant manager. This was a short stint, but SO miserable. I was newly engaged, planning a wedding at a distance, starting birth control (which made me cookoo), got married, planned a move to Portland which meant leaving behind my dearest friends, and was learning to be a new wife. I had a HORRIBLE manager who was mean, deceiving and ruthless. I was only there for 9 months and it was the LONGEST 9 months ever.

They aren't friends, just solicitors to my Hotmail junk box
  1. pharmaceuticals
  2. Viagara
  3. Porn
  4. retail establishments
4 places I would rather be
  1. Bellingham, Wash (this one is for Willow)
  2. On a sandy, warm beach in a cute swim suit that covers my stretch marks (it's 20 degrees outside)
  3. Austria
  4. shopping at Nordstrom (I'm really hoping you all get this one)
4 things I'm looking forward to this year
  1. Reaching my goal weight
  2. first camping trip with the family

Kate! I laughed myself silly reading about your lifeguard experience! Oh my word, if only I could have been a fly on the wall. So, i can't wait to hand out with you and Jodi. That will be so fun! Part of the reason that I am not protesting the move is because I remembered that I have really rad friends there. We are in for some good times. :)
