1.I was just voted in President of my son’s PTA.
2.I grew up going to church 3 times a week. I hardly ever go to church now.
3.I’m an Aries Sun Sign, Sagittarius Rising and Gemini Moon.

5.I am obsessed with personality quizzes, and I love studying other people.
6.I am nosy, but I know how to keep a secret. I should have been a detective or professional journalist.
7.I’m half Korean. My dad was a military police officer in South Korea, and my mom was a waitress. Legend has it that my dad was chasing a spy when he bumped into my mother. He went back later to apologize and asked her out on a date. Thanks, North Korean Spy Guy!
8.I’ve been obsessed with studying sociopaths/psychopaths ever since I met one. Just finished watching “The Jinx” (Robert Durst story) and reading “The Psychopath Test.” Did you know that there are more sociopathic CEOs and politicians than there are sociopaths in the general prison population?
9.I wish I could be a full time student again. There’s so much I want to learn. I don’t think my husband would approve though.
10.Whenever I lie down, I start to rub my feet vigorously. I don’t believe it’s Restless Leg Syndrome because I feel no pain. I don’t even realize that I’m doing it until my husband holds my feet down
