100 Things About Kin

Sunday, October 7, 2007
Hmm, where to begin?

1. I'm born on the cusp of Cancer and Leo, which means I'm bossy as all hell, but if you tell me that I'll cry. It also makes me a rather good organiser (of other people)
2. It takes me ages to fall asleep at night. It has ever since I was a child. Unfortunately it looks like the girls have inherited my trait.
3. I was born with jet black hair and dark brown eyes. My eyes never changed colour and are still dark brown (although do change a bit between dark and lighter brown).
4. M&M was born with brown eyes, and still has them. Kiki was born with blue eyes and at nearly 3 still has them
5. I have a Bachelor of Business degree with a major in Management and minor in Politics & International Studies.
6. I nearly finished my Education degree before M&M was born, but due to pre-eclempsia she was induced 3 weeks early, and I never finished.
7. My senior subjects at school were English, Maths B, Drama, Physics, Legal Studies & Chemistry for year 11, and switched to Economics for year 12.
