I participated in one of those survey things on Facebook. Since FB doesn't really have the greatest long-term storage capacity, I thought I'd post it here:
Amanda Jones Goodman gave me the age of 16.
At age 16, I was
Dating: (i didn't date in high school other than to go to girls' choice
dances.) One month after turning 16, I went on my first date. His name
was Jake, he was a senior, and I was smitten. He treated me kindly. It
was a double date for the spring fling. A friend of mine asked my older
brother to be her date. I remember we went to a park
to take pictures. And then I don't remember what we did. Pool? Mini
golf? I just remember being nervous and so happy Jake was so nice to me.
And that having my brother with me was kind of cool.
Living: with my parents in Orem
Driving: my mom's Tracker (when she let me)
Working: I was working at 5 Buck Pizza, which was my first official
job. I rolled dough, answered phones, made pizza, and tried to keep
pizzas from falling on the floor.
Fears: I was afraid that I'd
never date or kiss a guy. And while I didn't date or kiss in high
school (my first kiss was one month before i graduated, with a guy who
moved out of state the very next day) and that made me sad at the time,
I'm happy to report that i did eventually date and kiss several guys
while in college.
Today at almost 29:
Dating: happily married to my amazing, hilarious, supportive Austin for going on 7 years. Love you!
Living: in a condo in Pleasant Grove
Driving: (when I do drive) a really crappy rundown Lancer. Looking to buy a new (to me) car this year.
Working: I've been working as an editor for WGU for 5 1/2 years, I've
been a doula for 2 years, and mama to my crazy Danger Boy for 3 1/2
years. I'm hoping life gets less insane this year.
afraid of not meeting my various life goals. I'm afraid Morgan will not
progress. I'm afraid that life will continue to be almost more than I
can bear. I'm afraid of losing friends and family. But despite my fears,
I move forward as best I can.
