I enjoy writing the “Days of Our Lives” opinion articles for this site. I live and grew up in Brooklyn, just like the book “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn.” I did get a chance, when I was in college in my twenties, to live in upstate New York, in Poughkeepsie, for a while. I went to a community college there. I majored in the health care field and continued in that until I received my BS from St. Francis College in Health Care Management. I married on September 16, 1984 and had two children named Benjamin (who is now 27) and Natalie (now 17). They take up a good part of my life. Although I worked previously in the health care field, right now I am an Advertising Sales Rep for a magazine in Brooklyn as well as a Sales Representative in a Real Estate Company. I enjoy both part-time jobs.
In my spare time, I enjoy working out at a local gym, researching medical information on the internet, listening to music, and of course, shopping (as most women of my age do). Every ten years my hobbies change with the passing of time. I also have enjoyed taking courses either online or in an adult education program. I feel that the mind never stops working and has to be challenged. That is why I feel that keeping extremely busy and always wanting to learn new things will challenge my mind.
I also enjoy watching “Days of Our Lives” very much, when I have some spare time. I started watching the show 3 years ago and have not stopped. Some of the problems that the characters face are very similar to the problems and challenges that viewers face. I feel more involved with the show now that I can write these opinion articles about it. The most important feature that I have is that I enjoy talking to and working with people. I’m a people person and that gives me a sense of fulfillment.
