The story in 250 words

Just a little reminder in case you think this months post are a little random, and just me talking about myself ALL the time. I am taking part in Jenni's blog every day in May challenge.


In case you haven't worked it out yet it is day one, hence the 1st May and today's topic is to write the story of your life in 250 words or less, aka one paragraph. I love you guys, but I'm not going to spend my evening counting words for you :)

So here goes.....I'm just going to write.....OK this is much harder than I thought it would be.....

First step, I was born. The story goes that I shot out, and the midwife had to catch me. (I know, too much information, but we are all friends here.) I like to think I was just announcing to the entire world that I was here, it was all OK because I had arrived. I was so big-headed. I was diagnosed with a genetic condition called Cleidocranial Dysostosis (see, you didn't know that.) I cried, a lot and didn't sleep. I talked ALL the time. I constantly asked questions. I loved, sorry love, to learn. I decided at 7 years old I wanted to be a teacher, at 22 I changed my mind. I fell in love with the theatre whilst watching Panto when I was 4 years old. That is the first time I have ever cried at a song, it was Abba's 'Thank You For The Music', I know cringe-worthy. I studied drama at University. I still firmly believe, and always will that whatever profession I am in I am wasted in it; I should be on the stage. Maybe I never lost that big-headed trait. As an adult I have been through so many jobs, and not held one longer than 7 months, I didn't get fired; temporary contracts were the culprit. I am still unemployed, but I want to re-train as a social worker. Well at least now I do, give me 15 years and I might just change my mind. 

I think we can all agree that is enough about me, well for now at least.

What is the story of your life?

I like your story because it was quick and to the point with a little humor thrown in! Maybe all of those jobs were there to remind you of how much you love theater. You could probably find some pleasure in working at local theater in your town for a while and then see what happens from there. There are also some cool live arts festivals that you could get involved in...some that even pay. It's a nice option to mix fun and work for the things that you love :)
