Throughout December I am Kickin’ It Old Skool with Jamie Ridler, Shannon Ridler, and a whole group of other creative bloggers. We’re bringing back the days when blogging was fun and not just another chore on the social media frontier. Join in any time! The more the merrier.
First Job: I assisted the pre-school teachers at the daycare center where I had spent before and after school and summers. I remember being really excited to go to my first staff meeting.
The First Thing to Your Left: My phone. I guess it's always nearby.
Something You Remember About First Grade: I remember my teacher, Mrs. Ikeda. She was a kind, tiny, Korean woman who worked a second job at a department store in the mall. She used to give my mom a bunch of free perfume samples when we stopped by to visit.
The First Book You Ever Read: I have no idea! I remember my favorite childhood book was Because a Little Bug Went Kachoo. I also remember playing read-along cassette tapes and turning pages to the chimes. Bambi and The Pink Panther were definitely in that mix.
The First Thing You Do In the Morning: Check to see if my teenager is up and getting ready for school.
The First Food You Knew You Didn't Like: Green beans. Blech. Now, I will eat green beans if they are fresh. I'm still not a fan of frozen or canned.
Your First Memory: I remember getting pretty pillows for my fourth birthday. Though it's hard to say now whether I remember it from the moment or because I've seen it in pictures.
