I have some pretty cool 'rents. This blog post is an homage to them. :-)
My mom is the reason I'm in college. She is responsible for my insatiable desire to learn, succeed, and excel in all things academic. She was going to PLU while I was in high school getting her Bachelors degree, then went on to get her Masters degree and graduated Cum Laude (I'm pretty sure... don't be mad if I got it wrong mom!). Awesome. Hopefully I can follow her lead and go that far! Thanks mom!!
My dad is the reason I live for music. He is responsible for my desire to be nourished by chords, melodies, and lyrics. He has done much in the way of music, but I mostly remember his listening to classical music and opera. Oh, don't forget the oldies station. ;-) We used to listen to Heart's "Bad Animals" album in his car blasting while he would beat on the steering wheel, the dashboard, and sometimes our heads to replace the drums. Fun times. Thanks dad!!
So a big thank you to my parents for molding me into who I am today. I love you! <3
