My Birthday Countdown 2013

About 5 days ’til my birthday this year. I hate counting down to my birthday because it always makes me feel old! I’m sure most people will tell me (or even you) that 32 is not old, but dang! I can’t help but think how many historical events that have happened while I’ve been alive and that’s why I feel old. It doesn’t help that I work with the public and the young people tell me how old I am.

So what sort of things do I remember throughout my life? Well, here goes (in semi-chronological order):

  • MTV “born”
  • AIDS outbreak
  • Berlin Wall came down
  • Challenger Exploded
  • Gulf War I
  • Kansas City Royals won World Series
  • Cold War was ending
  • War on Drugs
  • Hubble launched
  • Princess Diana was killed in a car wreck
  • Kosovo Conflict
  • Y2K scare
  • Gulf War II
  • Bill Clinton Impeached
  • Saddam Hussein killed
  • Human Genome Project
  • First cloned animal
  • World Trade Center attacks
  • War on Terror
  • Recession

I’m sure there were/are more, but I am too tired to work on this more or write more on it tonight. Anyway, that’s all for tonight as I reflect on my age and try not to complain so much.

God, bless us — everyone!


About Christy

I enjoy: my family, my faith life, photography, drawing; writing, working on cars, basketball, football, and baseball. These are just a few of the many things I'll just have to read my blog to know me better to know more of them. Other things you may not catch on that I enjoy are: cats, angels, ballroom dancing, Christian music, camping (being one with nature and all of God's creations), traveling, cherry and apple blossoms, and the colors blue (in all shades), white, black, dark purple, and SOME shades of pink. (Rainbows are cool, too. And I'm NOT a lesbian! Although, I'm friends with some gays and lesbians as well as a few transgenders.) I am Roman Catholic. I graduated from Johnson County Community College, where I majored in Animation in hopes of fulfilling my dreams of being a computer generated animation movie maker. I also have a degree in Corporate Communication from Avila University. I'm currently employed at Nestle Toll House/Haagen-Dazs (at Oak Park Mall in Overland Park), I own my own business -- C & S Productions, L.L.C. (check it out at, and am single. My favorite time of year is Winter and the Christmas season! It's just so...well, I can't put it into words. ^_^ Lastly, I am 36 years young!
