Two Truths and a Lie: Were You Right?

Here are the answers for my two truths and the lie:

1. I did volunteer work at an orphanage in Mexico. LIE: I have been to Mexico (the Riviera Maya) twice, but only for relaxation and adventures. I would really like to spend some time there volunteering with children at a school or an orphanage.


2. I was born with three thumbs. TRUE: I was born with an extra thumb stemming off of my left thumb. My parents had it removed twice, but there is still a little bump. It doesn't bother me and it doesn't hurt, so I am okay with keeping it. One of my aunts has a third thumb on (I believe) the left thumb as well. It runs in the family. ;)


3. I was put on academic probation in college and later kicked out. TRUE: I was. I am not proud of it, but it is the truth. I attended Northern Illinois University for 3 semesters before I was kicked out at the end of 2001. I can make a million excuses, but I just didn't apply myself. Having a class an hour earlier than I was used to being at school for 12 years of my life, really threw me off. I would not be able to concentrate because I was falling asleep in class and then at the end of the day I would try to study and fall asleep on my books. I never got into a good routine to succeed. It's entirely my fault. Besides...a lot of the classes were lecture classes. If I am not being put on the spot, I will probably not do the readings. lol ;) In January of 2007 I went back to school part time. I attended the local community college and then transferred to a smaller university. The small class sizes were a much better fit for me. I finally graduated in May of 2012 with my bachelors degree in Elementary Education with a 3.82 GPA. Now if I could only find a teaching job...
