I may have been a long list, but anyone can make a long list. Quality over quantity. I wish I had Brianna1998's list... I was more of a B/C student low achiever with nothing to show for it. I am just "practical" not academic nor exciting. I'm a jealous person (although maybe I don't show it) and the grass always seems greener on the other side.

RE: Toot your own horn
Ok:

I've achieved the ripe old age of 41

I have been married once and for 16+ year, and I'm still madly in love.

I've successfully procreated 3 times all boys (although we lost our last at 4 months)

I've owned a house (the bank really) for 12 years, and the current house for 7 of those.

I will this month finally pay off my student loans!

I have a masters degree in Analytical Chemistry

I worked on a grant designing an experiment which was slated to go up on the Space Shuttle, although it was ultimately cut.

I am a published author in the magazine Nature!

I work for one of the leading Health Care/Pharma companies in the US.

I can touch the tip of my nose with my tongue.

That's all I got.

Oh I forgot about this:

I started questioning religion when I was 7 years old after I watched Carl Sagan's Cosmos.

When I was 10 years old I read an entire TIME-LIFE enciclopedy.

I can move my ears.

I can bend my left hand fingers and knees backwards Big Grin.
