Hey Y'all! My real name Gina, and I’m very pleased to join you all in this special forum. This is my very first post at The Gazebo. I figured I ought to begin at the beginning, so here's my introduction. No hecklers, please, lol. I was born in Panama City, Florida to parents who were also born in Panama City, Florida. At least five generations of my family have been Southerners. Beyond that, my ancestry is half Irish and half British, but for some reason I identify more with my Irish side. Some of the things I enjoy are books, nature, music, history, psychology, math, and science-- and about once a season I like to get a little drunk, muhahaha! I appreciate people with strong opinions who aren’t afraid to disagree with me, because that’s how I’ve learned some of my most valuable lessons. But of course, like everyone, I also like to be told that I’m right! This past December I graduated from Gulf Coast Community College with an A.A. degree in pre-elementary education (summa cum laude honors-- straight A's all the way through, thank you very much!). I was accepted into FSU's Education program but then decided that the life of a public school teacher wasn't what I wanted, so I stopped right there in order to get myself figured out. I married my dear husband in September 1990 and have been completely love-struck ever since. And btw, we're both Christians. I'm really looking forward to getting to know everyone and having a little posting fun!
