6 Things About Me

I stole this idea from Dak-Ind, but since she stole it from someone else I doubt she'll complain ;) I thought it might be a fun challenge to come up with 6 things about myself that a) I don't mind sharing with the world at large and b) regular readers of my blog don't know already. Hopefully this will be entertaining and/or informative for someone other than me!

1) Since I graduated from high school I haven't lived in any one place for more than 3 or 4 years. This has technically been broken by my long stay in PA, but I'm not sure that counts since I only really live there a few months out of the year while I'm going to school in NYC.

2) I love to cook. Over the last few years I've discovered a real love and talent for cooking. My better half has been very impressed by some of the dishes I've come up with. I probably inherited the talent from my grandfather, who was a chef.

3) I'm currently living (at the seminary) less than 30 miles from the hospital in which I was born.

4) I'm currently living close to 3,000 miles from the town I lived during most of the first 18 years of my life.

5) I have no regrets. This is something I couldn't always say, but I am truely content and happy with where I am in life right now and wouldn't change any of the descisions I've made in the past, because any one of those changed choices would change what I have now. And I wouldn't change that for anything.

6) I like myself (ok, I stole this too *L*). Something I haven't always been able to say. In fact, something I haven't truthfully been able to say until quite recently.
