The first major new event I remember was JFK's assassination. My dad was stationed in France, so we were living there. I was six and in first grade. My mother came into my bedroom and told me there was no school because someone had killed the president. She was crying.

It didn't really have an impact on my world view because I don't think, at six, I really had a world view. Other things had more impact as I got older and started to understand more. Things like the Viet Nam War, The Cold War, other assassinations. Most of those things turned me into a complete pacifist.

Between Kindergarten and graduating high school I went to ten different schools. My father was in the military, so I didn't have much choice. While I was in school, I tended to be very shy and quiet. I was always the new kid in school. I'm still fairly quiet and don't mind my own company, but I learned in college to be more outspoken. I don't always have as much confidence as I would like but at least now I have no problem being on stage and singing, dancing or acting my tushie off.

[Error: unknown template qotd] My favorite arts and crafts project is counted cross stitch. I completed two victorian era houses (patterns by Debbie Patrick) and have about 10 more to work on. The one I'm working on now is a house that's in my neighborhood. I may give it to the owners when I finish it, but I haven't decided.
