I'm sure you all fall into the latter category, so I thought it would be fun to share why we are all unique! What makes you different from every other average Joe?



I think for me, it's the fact that I left my family and friends behind me in America to move to Australia and have no intent on moving back!

    That I come from a really low socio economic background worked my butt to be the first person to graduate uni. I now have a great job, have travelled the world and experienced things that most people in my family have never dreamed.

    I feel like I've had a pretty...not rough but interesting life....list of things that have made me stronger and more unique:

    Survived 14 malignant melanomas over the last 11 yrs (only 2 sunburns in my life too...damn that sun!)
    Domestic violence survivor
    Birthmother (AND PROUD!)
    Military wife (AND PROUD!)
    I am 25 and have started my own company and co-founded another company.
    I am a certified Beer Judge
    I make the best truffles! AND AND AND Toffee! YUM! now i want some...perhaps this is why I need MFP haha

    other awesome things about me include my love for Archaeology, business and traveling!

    I'm awesome? LOL No really I'm not sure......I've managed to get two degrees in less than 3 years while staying home with my kids...that has to account for something!

    Me too please. :-D and BTW, look at you go! You'd think the melanomas would have given up by the tenth, but you just kicked its stubborn teeth right in.


    Oh right, the thread...
    I've ridden an elephant, he was an Asian named Wimpy.
    I've written a lot of songs and poetry, not much lately, kids.
    I like painting with acrylics and am not too shabby at it.
    I haven't used commercial shampoo or conditioner since May and my hair is better for it.

    I'm the only person in my entire family to get a PhD. And I never had the chickenpox.
