I have shared that I’m a 9th grade English teacher in a junior high setting and that I really enjoy my job most days. Obviously I don’t blog much in connection to school. What brings me to blogging is my interest in Young Adult Literature as a teacher, but mostly as a reader.
A is for age: 31 years young! 30s ain’t no thang.
B is for breakfast today: Bacon breakfast sandwich and iced tea from Starbucks.
C is for currently craving: I’m stuffed–nothing! I had two cookies after dinner which was probably my craving before eating. 🙂
D is for dinner tonight: Tacos!
E is for favorite type of exercise: Boot camp–BC changes it up every time and I like the variety and the challenge.
F is for an irrational fear: The dark!? It’s just a sort-of phobia, but I think that qualifies. Public transportation. I’m not a fan and I’m okay not using it.
G is for gross food: I’m such a picky eater–anything. Mushrooms, slimy seafood, chunky peppers (although I don’t mind them in moderation), etc.
H is for hometown: Puyallup, WA. I’m a Washingtonian at heart!
I is for something important: My family–my husband, mom, dad, brother and sister-in-law. I adore them and we get to spend a lot of time with them, for which I am so grateful.
J is for current favorite jam: Raspberry preserves. Or The Beatles, depending on what jam we’re talking about.
K is for kids: Someday, hopefully.
L is for current location: Tacoma, WA. We get a bad rap (rep?) but this is the home of the high school featured in 10 Things I Hate About You which I think is amazeballs. 🙂
M is for the most recent way you spent money: Groceries.
N is for something you need: My family, my friends… on a lighter note I need more time and more money. If anyone knows where to find those let me know. 🙂
O is for occupation: 9th grade English teacher, Entangled Publishing intern
P is for pet peeve: Ignorance
Q is for a quote: “It takes ten times as long to put yourself back together as it does to fall apart.” -Suzanne Collins
R is for random fact about you: I wear my engagement ring on my wedding ring finger and my actual wedding ring on my right hand. They are completely different rings but I love them both!
S is for favorite healthy snack: Raw almonds
T is for favorite treat: Fro yo!
U is for something that makes you unique: (according to my husband) I’m unique because I’m covered in moles/beauty marks. Thanks, babe? Or he says that I’m always covered in glitter (this is the plague of being a leadership teacher where my students regularly handle glitter). 🙂 Plus I love sparkles and shiny stuff so it’s only appropriate.
V is for favorite vegetable: Carrots
W is for today’s workout: No comment. 🙂
X is for X-rays you’ve had: I’ve never broken a bone but have the standard, very cool teeth/mouth x-rays.
Y is for yesterday’s highlight: Spending time walking on the waterfront with my friend Becky (and her son Jett) for the first time in weeks.
Z is for your time zone: Pacific, baby! The land of spoilers on Twitter (I basically stay away from like 5-8 my time on the nights of favorite shows).
