Seven Things!

The lovely Mrs. Pancakes over at Mrs. challenged me to share 7 things about myself so here goes!

1) My favorite dish is Oxtail & Rice n Peas.

2) My family heritage is Jamaican, and I speak fluent Patois.

3) I had emergency gall bladder removal surgery last December, after being misdiagnosed for a year. (Anyone having tummy troubles, make sure they rule gallstones OUT!)

4) The furthest west I have ever been is New Orleans, (and that was one day on a cruise!) I sure hope to explore more western and southern areas like Vegas, Cali, Chi-town, Colorado, Texas and the list goes on!
5) I’ve never had a broken bone.

6) I skipped 2 grades, and graduated high school when I was 16. (no club after prom for me!)

7) I received my Masters Degree in Public Administration, and my dream job is somewhere in Government or politics. Obama give me a ring!

Those are my 7 things! That was fun. :)
