Hmmm.... the story of my life..... that oughta be interesting! Especially in 250 words or less! Reader's Digest version, anyone?
Here goes nothing-
I was born on a Thursday morning to a couple living in a small suburb of a bustling metropolitan area. My first babysitter was the family dog. He'd watch me in a laundry basket in the yard while my mom did whatever it was that she was doing. I was very sheltered and protected, despite my early babysitter, even though my siblings had limitless freedoms. I had pretty strict rules imposed on me, and I found my way through life, surviving most of the time, but managing to have some fun along the way.
I was introduced to horses at ten, and spent the rest of my youth surrounded by the majestic beasts to which I credit my survival. I’ve been an avid reader my whole life, and getting lost in books kept me sane. My family camped instead of traveled, roasting marshmallows year round in the fireplace at home. I graduated from high school and made it through university, landing my dream job. My siblings live all over the globe, and I’m not the greatest at keeping in touch with them, but I try. My family has instituted a “family dinner night” for those that do live local, and while I try to avoid it as much as I can, it is nice to get a brief dose of the mirage that they believe in.
