More Than a WLS Patient....

Here are some things about me that are non weight loss surgery related. :)

  • I like foreign films. Thankfully Netflix has helped me to be able to watch more of these.
  • I hope I inspire my students to be better people. While teaching academics is important, wanting them to be good human beings is more important to me.
  • I do not like large group settings. I want to blend into the background as much as possible. This has gotten a little bit easier since I have lost weight, but is still an issue.
  • I don't need a large circle of friends, just a few good ones to lean on.
  • I am not easy to trust people with details about my life. (Blogging aside of course!)
  • I have very average intelligence. I've achieved the academic goals in my life by hard work.
  • I love encouraging people. It delights my heart to see people encouraged and uplifted.
  • I wish I could achieve half of the goals I set for myself. I am proud that I do set goals, and that I meet some of them.
  • I love trying new restaurants. Although once I find a restaurant that I like, I tend to stick to one particular dish.
  • I say I'm sorry way more than I should. I always try to be a peacemaker.
  • I am thankful for how close I am to my dad.
  • I feel so alive when I travel... Experiencing other cultures and places leaves me in awe.
  • I love learning about the Holocaust. This sparked when I was in 4th grade and I read the Diary of Anne Frank. I especially want to hear the stories of survivors.

Thanks for sharing! For the record, I think you encourage and uplift people through your blog (myself included!)

Foreign films: I don't know if Australia counts, but there is a film called Lantana that is amazing. It's a bit mystery but not like gory or anything. Highly recommend.
