  1. Oh yeah, and what mountain did you climb? And why was your pic in the newspaper? Sorry, I’m asking a million questions, lol. But that’s why I like these blog entries- so I can learn about other people (and more about my friends), and then ask them about this stuff… 🙂

  2. Answer to your questions:
    – I got fired from my job at the library when I was 20, because my contract expired and they couldn’t legally prolong it as I had exceeded the number of renewals you can get.
    – I fractured my wrist when I was 9.
    – I can’t remember, but it was a small one in the Czech Republic
    – I had my pic in the news paper a few times. All times were because I was involved with the local sort of cheerleader group that I used to dance in from 7-11. We always got our picture taken for promotion purposes.

  3. -Here in the States I think they would actually call that “being let go”, as “fired” means you did something wrong to get your job terminated, which you didn’t. Kinda the same thing happened with my government job.
    -How did you fractured your wrist (if you remember)?
    -Climbing a mountain in the Czech Republic sounds like a feat still. Especially since I hate climbing/hiking, lol.
    -I had no idea you used to dance. That, or I don’t remember you mentioning it. Did you save any of the newspaper pics & articles?

    • – yeah well technically you’re fired. I always thought being let go is just a euphemism for being fired…
      – I fractured my wrist while rollerskating with a friend. I slipped, didn’t fall the right way and crack it went. I had a bad year that year anyway. Just a few months later I nearly fractured my knee when I fell off my bike while coming home from school.
      – I’ve been dancing since I was six! Am still doing it too! Yep all articles and pictures from that time are in my photo books from when I was little.
