one thing you should know about me is i love to make history. probably because i actually dig history. it’s dark and painful sometimes, but it’s also exhilarating and exciting and quite liberating. there is all that talk about not knowing your past means you’re destined to repeat it. whatever, i like knowing the past because it’s full of firsts. who doesn’t want to be the first at something?
my love for making history has led me to do some pretty awesome, and kind of crazy things. i was one of a gazillion people freezing our tails off at barack obama’s first inauguration. it was a-maze-balls! but i’ve also been lucky enough to help set two world records in the great city of seattle. three years ago i participated in the first fremont zombie walk and this past weekend i helped seattle break the world record for the largest snowball fight! oh joy!
i know you’re probably thinking, dang she is really cool. yes, it’s true. i am cool. but mostly i just live in a very cool city inhabited by people who understand that life is best lived out loud. i can’t say that enough. get out the house and do something! have fun. laugh. enjoy yourself. be a kid!
that’s exactly what i did with the more than six thousand people who showed up for the first ever seattle snow day. we made snow forts, drank hot chocolate, took goofy pictures, danced to a dj and of course lobbed snowballs (really ice balls) at each other for a few hours. it was cold as the arctic out there but we made history so who cares? here’s a quick video of our shenanigans!
that video made it seem like no brown people were there at all. but trust me, we were in the mix. me and my cute self was all up in the mix. i have photographic evidence though so it’s all good!
