Truth Revealed!

The other day I received a blog award which required me to tell 5 facts about myself and only one could be completely true.  Did you guess the correct one?
1.  During college I studied abroad for a semester in London.  Our flats were in "Little Venice" which is located just blocks from the area where Madonna owned a flat and one afternoon while out on the walk I ran into her and had the chance to chat with her for a few minutes.  FALSE! All of this is true except for the part where I had a chat with Madonna.  She did live nearby and we always hoped we would run into her but never did!

2.  After college I moved to California to work as an Americorps VISTA with Habitat for Humanity.  While there I had the opportunity to build a house with Robin Williams and Dustin Hoffman. TRUE!  The build was called "Hollywood for Habitat" and we built 20 houses in a week along with many celebrities.  It was a lot of fun.

3.  I have been on crutches six times in my life for breaks and/or surgeries but I do not consider myself a clutz!  FALSE! I have broken my leg and/or torn ligaments 3 times but only needed to be on crutches 2 of those times b/c the first break happen when I was only 3 years old!  I've had surgery on each foot and had to use crutches then.  So that totals 4 times.  I might have had to use them one other time for a sprain but can't remember for sure!

4.  I went to Boston College Graduate School of Social Work and graduated 2nd in my class. FALSE!  I wish this were true.  I did go to BC for grad school but I'm not that smart.  Haha!

5.  I am a medical social worker at a hospital that is the "Official Healthcare Partner for the Boston Bruins" and therefore see Bruins players as patients often.  FALSE!  I do work as a medical social worker for the hospital that is the official healthcare partner but I have yet to see a Bruins player as a patient.  A few of them have visited and signed autographs!
Did you guess right?  Hope you enjoyed!

  1. Just stumbled upon this old post while reading your blog, and realized you did Americorps, too. HOW did I never know that?
