Seven Quick Takes Friday

Seven amazing things I still can’t believe I have done:

Seven

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.

Six

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.

Five

I was an exchange student in San Luis Potosi, Mexico for six weeks when I was sixteen.

Four

I sang with some other members of my high school chorus and some other high school students at Carnegie Hall on Good Friday, 1996.

Three

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.

Two

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.

One

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.
