25 Random Facts about Me

Borrowing a worn-out meme that made the rounds at Facebook a few years ago, here are some things you probably don't know about me:
  1. Until I was 11 or 12, I wouldn’t eat white food: no potatoes, cheeses, etc.  I did drink milk, though.
  2. I was born in Australia (g’day, mate!)
  3. When I was in 6th grade, I missed a day of school to attend the naturalization ceremony in court for my mother and me to become U.S. citizens.
  4. After my undergrad graduation, I’ve really only had two jobs.  One for two years and the other for 15+ years (same position in more than one place).
  5. I won a poetry contest when I was 19 years old and it literally changed the direction of my life.
  6. I love cilantro.
  7. I love sriracha red chili paste/sauce.

  21. I have lens implants in my eyes because my corneas are too thin for LASIK.
  22. I won the school spelling bee in the fourth grade.
