My so-called Life By Annette Charboneau Dickens
My Childhood • My childhood was all right, high school sort of sucked (except for sports), the military was painful yet educational, but college was pretty awesome! • I grew up in “Small Town, Oklahoma” (Fairview) but got to live in Washington D.C. for almost five years before moving back to the Oklahoma City area. Guess I’m just Sooner born & Sooner bred!
We are Family • Actually, my best friends are the members of my family. I’m proud to say that my favorite people to spend time with are my husband David, my daughter Tawny, and my parents J. N. & Wynema (especially on vacations).

Dreams Dreams Pretty much all my dreams have come true: great family, friends, church, career, and new house in the country. But, some future goals would be a masters’ degree from OU, publishing a book, buying a few toys (boat, motorcycle, jet skis, etc.), restoring an old two-storied Victorian home, traveling to Europe, and of course, someday actually meeting . . . . . . . . . . . . THE ROCK! Dreams
School is Cool Naturally, I like school because I enjoy teaching, coaching, and seeing most of the students every day. However, I don’t like giving out detentions, doing lunch/bus duty, or faculty meetings (too early)! But Summer Rulz! School Daze Yuck!
