Eight Things About Me ...

I've been tagged by both Apple and Tex for the "8 things about me" meme. The rules for this meme are:
  1. Each player starts with eight random fact/habits about themselves.
  2. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
  3. A the end of your blog post, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their name.
  4. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged and to read your blog.

I do not believe I have participated in this meme before, so here are eight facts about me:

  1. Besides doing genealogy, I also like to read (Something you have probably figured out by now.), write stories, draw, paint, knit, crochet and play the piano.
  2. I also love to learn about other cultures, countries, religions and languages.
  3. I have studied German for almost five years. I had two years in high school, and almost three years in college.
  4. After I finish my bachelor's degree, I plan on continuing onto graduate school, and hopefully, I will eventually obtain a PhD in history. (It looks like I will be in school for a long time.)
  5. I also like to play computer games, and my favorite computer game at the moment is Age of Empires 3. (It's not exactly a historically accurate game, but the historical theme and strategy are what interests me the most about this game.)
  6. I hope to write a book someday and have it published.
  7. The historical topics and eras that I am interested in span from the Middle Ages to the present. (Yes, I realize I have a broad interest in history.)
  8. I would like to travel the world some day.

And now, I am supposed to tag eight other people. The eight people I am tagging are:

So, that is eight things about me that you now know. I hope you find them interesting. Enjoy!

Go for that PhD! It's lots fewer hours than the undergrad degree. :-) The coursework was great; the dissertation process ate my lunch!

Enjoyed your post! The funny thing is you posted it before I actually tagged you! ;-)
