S is for Six

Six minutes before I have to leave for work, so I'll try listing a quick six random things about myself.

1. In 2009 I visited Australia for the first time and France for the third time. I love traveling and wish I had the time and money to do more of it.

2. I went to a creative arts school from 7th through 12th grade. We auditioned as 11 and 12 year olds to decide our majors. I scored 9/10 in art, and became an art major, while I only scored 4/10 in creative writing. Irony is awesome.

3. I love baseball and the Cincinnati Reds. My grandfather played minor league ball and probably would have been tickled that my brother and I enjoy it so much.

4. My favorite subjects in high school were math and chemistry. I tested out of those classes in college, instead taking more arts classes. I often wonder what would have happened if I pursued the sciences.

5. My younger brothers are straight edge. No drugs, no smoking, no alcohol. Me, I go to weekly wine tastings. Love me a good malbec or cabernet sauvignon.

6. When I was 9 I got on the wrong school bus home (first day of 4th grade). I was too shy to tell the driver so I got off at the first stop and started walking.

Love this format. I promise to steal it for my own purposes sometime soon. It'll come in handy when I'm looking for a different approach during an interview.

I, for one, am glad you found your way to writing.

I remember getting on a wrong bus, and then getting on another wrong bus trying to correct the mistake. I wasted 2 1/2 hours that day.

Here are six random things about me, that play off of your random six:

1. Mine and my wife's (wait, or is it "my wife's and mine"? "my wife and my"?) honeymoon was in Australia.
2. I love to write too--ironically I barely passed the writing portion of my state teaching exam by a single point.
3. I hated Pete Rose as a Phillies fan growing up. Then he was traded to the Phillies.
4. I managed to finish high school without a single lesson in chemistry (because I was in Japan my junior year, when my US school took chemistry).
5. I've never even touched a cigarette in my life.
6. I still remember my elementary bus number: #86
