Prompt: How often do you get a chance to tell your life story? And when you do, how long does it take?
I love hearing people's stories, finding out what makes them tick, where they came from, where they've been and how they got where they are. The struggles they've faced, the joy they have experienced draw me in. It's one of the reasons I love blogs. I'm much more comfortable reading and listening to other people's stories than I am sharing my own. I tell my stories in bits and pieces...here. In person, I tend to give edited versions of my stories until I know the person well and trust them. I also take the audience into account. Last week my supervisor and I were exchanging "how we met" stories. Big Yankee talks about it here. And while I love how we met and it's an important chapter in our book of life, I don't need my supervisor of less than two weeks to know we met in a bar. I gave her the abridged version for now. She got the "how we met" but not "where we met" parts.
and...time is up.
