It’s day one of my five day challenge and I am so excited to get this ball going!
I decided to write five facts about myself. I feel like it would help people know a little more about me.
Fact 1: I am working towards my Bachelor’s in Science.
Since I plan on one day going to medical school, there are certain prerequisites that need to be obtained. I decided that majoring in Biology and minoring in Chemistry would be the best choice for me. I would be able to complete all the prereqs, for ceratin medical schools, without having to take additional classes.
Fact 2: My birthday is June 22, 1996.
Which means I’m a cancer baby, and that I just turned 21!
Fact 3: I am a substitute teacher!
I have a love/hate relationship when it comes to this job. I mostly hate it because we never get called into work the first three to four months, which means no money for us! When the end of school comes though, we are getting job offers left and right! I love it because it gives me the freedom of making my own scheduel and making my own choices. I especially love working with the kids. I’ve come to learn that not all kids are the same.
Fact 4: I am a black belt in the style of Goju-Ryu karate.
This fact comes to a shock for most people when I tell them. I started martial arts when I was seven, because I was bullied on a school bus. I recieved my black belt when I was fifteen! It took a lot of hard work, but I am so grateful for my parents who consistently took me to practice and pushed me. I know this might be shocking what I am about to say, but I am so thankful that I got bullied that day. I know weird, but hear me out! If I hadn’t gotten bullied then my parents would of never enrolled me into karate classes, which means I would have never met my current boyfriend.
Which brings me to fact number five!
Fact 5: I’m in an amazing relationship.
It’s true, if I hadn’t been bullied I would’ve probably never met Hector. I feel like everything happens for a reason and we just have to wait to figure it out.
We currently turned four years and a month about three days ago. He is the most amazing, funniest, dorkiest person I have ever met! He is also a black belt, just in case you were wondering.
Let me say that it took him three different tries to get me, but I am so happy he persisted and never gave up.
These are some facts to help you get to know me better. I hope you enjoyed my post/day 1! If you have any tips for a new blogger, feel free to help a girl out!
