Seven amazing things I still can’t believe I have done:
I graduated from high school with over a 4.o GPA thanks to honors and AP classes. I always got good grades, but I couldn’t believe this.
I got a masters degree in library and information science. It took a lot of hard work and studying. Studying gets harder when you are an adult. Now, I just wish I could use my degree.
I was an exchange student in San Luis Potosi, Mexico for six weeks when I was sixteen.
I sang with some other members of my high school chorus and some other high school students at Carnegie Hall on Good Friday, 1996.
I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Guatemala in 2002 and 2003. I taught health and hygiene in three rural elementary schools. I also got to travel around the country a bit and get to know the culture by living with a Guatemalan family.
I went to Italy with my church choir in 2008. We visited Siena, Florence, Rome, and Assisi. I got to stand where Saints have stood. I climbed the Holy Steps on my knees. We sang in several churches. We went to St. Peter’s Basilica and the Sistine Chapel. We saw Pope Benedict XVI.
I met and married my wonderful husband. In the little town where I lived, I wasn’t meeting any single Catholic men. I went out on a limb and tried catholicmatch.com. I met B. and we hit it off. We’ll be married two years next month.
