How Could This Happen!!!

Oh, Mama Kat, how could this happen!! I chose prompt two early in the week.

2.) Five Things. List 5 things we don’t know about you, 5 things you’re knowledgeable about, 5 things you know nothing about, and 5 things you believe. (inspired by LouLou’s Views)

I wrote in my little notebook that I would blog about 5 things I believe today, and then I turn around and do something ridiculous!… I blogged about 10 things I know to be true YESTERDAY! How could I be so silly? So, I’m changing my mind slightly, and I am very thankful that your robust prompts allow me to do so. Instead of 5 things I believe, I’m going to write 5 thing you don’t know about me.

Hmm…I’m pretty much an open book. This might be hard. Well, here goes!

1. I went to Catawba College for four years and got a degree in Theatre Arts. I loved it. I hate to admit that it was probably the peak of my life. I knew that to be true for years. But, then I had children. What a relief to know I didn’t peak and drop so early!! My parents moved to Salisbury, the town of the college, after I graduated. So, now I get to call my college town home! And, I love it!!

2. OK, so most of you probably know, but if you don’t, here’s my chance to share it again – I suffer with bipolar disorder. And, when I say suffer, I mean SUFFER. It sucks (sorry mom), but it does. But, there are also good things. I have a great support system. My compassion is close to infinite. And, I think I’ve finally landed the *BEST* doctor!!

3. When I was in 6th grade I took a journalism class, and decided I wanted to be a writer when I grew up. But, then I pursued theatre for about 15 years, and now am RETIRED from that. So, I’m finally realizing my original desire for myself. My first big dream. It is a perfect creative outlet for me in my solitude.

4. I LOVE popcorn. That may sound silly, but I do. I go to Target just to buy popcorn and a drink for less than 2 dollars, and then I walk around and look at all the shiny pretty stuff. Oh, and I also love ice cream (which I swear should totally be one word). I practically lived off of milkshakes when I was pregnant. Both times. And, the nutritionist told me it was OK. I only gained 1 pound the first time, and 8 the second.

5. And, last, but definitely not least. I am a Christian. Most everyone who knows me, knows this, but sometimes I still hold onto a postmodern philosophy that says, we all can have our own truths. I know this is not true. There is an absolute truth. Jesus IS the son of God, and he died for me. He even prayed for me in John 17! Really, He did. Check it out if you don’t believe me. It could have been you He was praying for, too! Oh, and if you can’t find it, just ask me. I’ll tell you the exact moment where he uttered words to His Father in prayer for me!

  1. Well I learned a couple of new things about you. I forgot about your love of popcorn but did not know you went to Target for it. They always make it smell so good there.

    I think it’s funny you put popcorn over ice cream. As your first editor- Jesus IS the Son of God. : )

    1. Caroline says:

      Thanks, MOM! I’ll go fix that right now!!

  4. Emily says:

    I learned two things about you that I did not know we had in common. I wrote a lot when I was a kid and although I did not major in theatre I did do a lot of it. I decided not to pursue acting because I did not want to be a starving one, and years later, here I am blogging!

    1. Caroline says:

      Yes! I was a starving one for about 10 years!!

  5. Jenners says:

    I love that you retired from theater to pursue writing! That is my kind of career path!

    Thanks for your visit earlier today!

    1. Caroline says:

      Yeah, HA, I’ve never quite tried a *real* career!

  6. Sara says:

    Thanks for sharing! I’m a new follower! I’m going to snatch this idea up for my blog for a later post!

    1. Caroline says:

      Snatch away! I’m so happy to have a new follower!!

  7. Rachael says:

    I love popcorn too, it is my go-to snack at home. Salty, and you can eat a lot without many calories!

    1. Caroline says:

      Yep, other than ice cream, I’m a big salty fan!!

  8. Melissa says:

    Love #3! I’m going back to my first grade dream of being a writer as well. Wait, does this mean I was smarter when I was 6… yeah, that sounds about right…

    1. Caroline says:

      No, or course not, it just means you were an unusually wise 6 year old!!
