Seven Things About Me

1. While in high school, I won a Wendy Ward Modeling School scholarship and after high school, was signed by Ann Geddes modeling agency (now Geddes Agency).  But, I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up.

2.  My sun sign is Aquarius and I’m true to the song “Aquarius” from the play “Hair.”

3.  One of my most favorite things to go out for is karaoke.  I love singing and music and was with Up With People in my senior year of high school.

4.  Once owned a corporation that was in the top 5 employers in that town.

5.  Widowed and mother of one, now retired but take on special projects for attorneys.  But, I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up.

6.  Since the age of 8, and other than about 3 years of my adult life, I’ve owned a dog. My first dog, a mixed German Shepherd and Boxer, lived 15 years.

7.  Love to write.  My first college major was journalism, then changed to business management and hung out with students of the School of Law; because I didn’t know what I wanted to be when I grew up.  Did I say that I love to sing?

  1. Awesome! I tried out for Up With People but didn’t make it 😦 LOL


    • @Rachael. I distinctly remember that at a rehearsal, a “Northside” girl tried picking a fight with me by hitting me on my back each time we did the choreography of lifting our hands. And, a “Northside” guy got in her butt about it. Her actions were totally against what Up With People stood for. I looked into his baby blue eyes and thanked him. She cried and left.

      Sorry you didn’t make it. I’m sure you would have enjoyed it.


  2. Congratulations, Xena.

    Our lady of many talents!

    Your ability to sing must bring you and others much joy. Where would the world be without music?

    As I have read your comments over the last year+ here and elsewhere, I DO see how you are, as you say, “true to the song ‘Aquarius’ :

    Then peace will guide the planets
    And love will steer the stars
    This is the dawning of the age
    Of a Aquarius, the age of Aquarius
    Aquarius, Aquarius
    Harmony and understanding
    Sympathy and trust abounding
    No more falsehoods or derisions
    Golden living dreams of visionsMystic crystal revelation
    And the minds true liberation
