Slice of Life Challenge #21 Day 21: Depending On When You Met Me

For the month of March, each day I am writing and posting a slice of my life, hosted by Two Writing Teachers. 

Slice of Life Challenge #21 Day 21:

Depending on When You Met Me   

As usual, I am almost always late to the party. Thank you to Leigh Anne for this invitation. I have enjoyed reading other bloggers respond to Leigh Anne's invitation. 

Depending on When You Met Me by Trina

Depending on when you met me, I might have been: a kid who played tag in the church sanctuary while her father prepared Sunday sermons, a piano player who had to be nagged to practice, a Girl Scout, a little sister who read her big sister's diary, a tenth grader who got to collect holy water from the Jordan River, a babysitter, a flutist, the girl who sold tresses of her blonde hair to a market vendor in Bolivia, the kid who got emergency surgery on her wisdom teeth two days before a trip to Germany, the girl who moved and switched high schools the summer before her senior year of high school, a hostess and waitress, a church camp counselor, a book seller, an university Information Technology Student Worker, a graduate of a English Education, a chaperone of high school students to the British Isles and later Australia, a teacher of middle school students, a graduate student who had to put her degree on hold when her baby boy was born premature, a sleep-deprived full-time working momma of two, a baker, a ukulele player, a secondary district literacy coach, a high school English and Alternative Education teacher, a mentor, a divorcee, a cat owner, a plant enthusiast, a woman who is learning how to sew again, a girlfriend, and a voracious reader and writer.

  1. Trina, I love reading this short biography of your life. I didn’t know your son was a preemie. You’ve had some wonderful travel experiences, and I know you’re going to have much more to add to this life story as time rolls on.

  3. Welcome! Your list showed in a short paragraph how much has changed...and how much maybe is the same. The threads that run through all of it and make it a life.

  4. Thank you for joining and sharing your ID...you naughty little sister! :) You have been quite the world traveler. As with everyone's response to this prompt, there is so much more to tell!

  5. Welcome to the party! As an older sister with a diary I scoffed in older sister offense at that identity. I loved learning about you though through your various identities. I played tag in church too -- did you hide under pews and stuff as well?

  6. Thanks for the reminder to join the party-I will be late too. I love this list. I was very impressed with how many places you traveled. I was also a church camp counselor!

  7. You're not as late as me. I haven't done it yet, but I'm reading a few today. It's amazing how many things you can fit into a sentence about a life. Your words paint a picture of your history. We find seeds that interest and want to know more: premature baby? the ukulele? (I failed at this instrument)

  9. So fun to get to know you better. Glad you could come to the party. You brave girl to tackle travel two days after getting your wisdom teeth out. And moving just before your senior year stinks. I think we might enjoy baking together!
