Proverbs 31: Day 2: What Makes Me Uniquely Me?

"What makes you uniquely you?"

Welllll... this could be an interesting list!  Beyond the fact that I was created to be me, with my own soul, here are some characteristics, the combination of which you probably couldn't find anyone to match perfectly.  :-)
  • I am Katie R-- B------ Hodge
  • I have spent my entire life in Southwest Ohio.
  • I have a B.A. from Miami University, where my parents met, dated and married and where my little brother is a senior.
  • I earned this degree three years after graduating high school... I took a full freshman year of college during my senior year of high school, at a branch campus of Miami.
  • I am an aunt to a beautiful niece and a rascally (cute-as-a-button) nephew, thanks to my big sister.
  • I have my daddy's nose, and my mom's expressive face.
  • I seem to be the only person in my family with green eyes.
  • I have a few more medical conditions than seem really necessary--Type I diabetes, polycystic ovarian syndrome, ADHD, major depressive disorder, allergies (don't laugh--this might be the crappiest on the list when they get bad!)... blahblahblah...
  • I met my husband on an online dating site.  It's okay to look :-)
  • All of my grandparents are still alive and feisty! 
  • Spiders give me nightmares.  Literally.
  • The key to my heart: office supplies.
  • I love a crafting challenge, and can usually meet it.  I made a sea shell bouquet for a friend's wedding... and had no idea what I was doing.  It turned out great!
  • My favorite color is blue, which is a big surprise to a lot of people.  I wear a lot of pink, decorated my dorm room and my room at my parents' house in pink... Love blue.  
  • I have a dry, slightly morbid sense of humor... funeral director's daughter.
  • I love to bake... it makes me feel domestic.
  • I hate most other domestic tasks.
  • I love being a teacher's wife... just conjures up a cute, smart, conservative little woman, no?  And I love my teacher <3
  • I'm a pretty good mix of mountain and city folk, with some ancient regal and Native American thrown in for good measure.  And Irish... can't forget the red highlights and temper. ;-)
  • I kill plants.  I just do.
  • I have the heart of a servant.  I used to volunteer as a Rape Crisis Victim Advocate, and for years as a candy striper.   I hate to see anybody lonely or scared, and will do everything in my power to change that.
  • I have been employed as: a yogurt girl, cashier, mall cop, and substitute teacher.  And they're not as different as they sound.  
  • My first career ambition was to teach pigs how to cut hair.  After that, to be a stay-at-home mom like mine.  I've come back around to SAHM, but not back to the porcine cosmetology instructor... we'll see.
That's long enough, I reckon... I may or may not have told you anything you didn't already know, but... I had fun writing it :-)
