My Husband and I got to play with adolecent tigers on our Honeymoon in Thailand.  That’s my thing so far.

Flew on one of the presidental campaign plains with a few cabinet members and the campaign chiefs across the country.  Seriously, one of the moments when you look around and ask yourself “how the hell did I get here?”.

I graduated with my BA at 20 years old. Smile I was accepted into a Ph.d. program this year at 22.

@supervixen:  You might have 10 years ago, my political days are done, but I have done a lot of local tv (in the areas that I worked) and some national am radio.  I am way to old to be sleeping on folding tables, eating no doze for lunch, and replacing all my tires and windows.  I will leave that to the young people.  It is an easy business to get burned out on if you are not willing to work in DC.

Hmm…I’ve gone skydiving, I have climbed one of the top 10 most active volacanos on the planet to the point where I was climbing over lava, and hmm…I once decided, on a whim, to travel to Guatemala. When I got there, my friend and I pointed at a location on the map and said “okay, let’s just go there” and set off without a plan/accomodations, etc. in mind.

I hope all of this will someday be overshadowed by summiting Mt Kilimanjaro!

I don’t know if this counts as “cool” or not. One of the things I’m most proud of:

My and my younger brother’s biological father left us when I was 3. When I was 18, his Grandmother (my great-grandmother) died and I went to the funeral. He gave me a check for $2,000. He told me that $1000.00 was supposed to be for me and $1000.00 for my younger brother. At the time, my Mother was going through her third divorce and desperately trying to provide for us. We gave the money to her.
