10 honest things about myself

1. i have a terrible sense of direction. i rely heavily on my navigator to get around. the first few weeks of high school i was lost. i had such anxiety over it that i'd stay after to "practice" my schedule, and i still have nightmares that i can't find my locker!

2. i failed my driving test the first time. the second time i did even worse! the instructor felt bad and passed me, but made me promise i wouldn't go anywhere i had to parallel park!

3. i was once hit on by a much older man with an accent who told me he likes girls with short heads. (i believe he meant hair, but who knows!)

4. while preparing food with coconut oil, i like to stop and rub the excess from the measuring spoon on my face, hands, and hair. is that gross?

5. my sweetie pie john and i decided that we are married on a plane ride to holland in march '08. hubs told the hotel worker we were on our honeymoon (well, we were!) and she upgraded us to a great big room with an amazing view!

6. i can name all 50 u.s. states in alphabetical order in less than a minute, thanks to my 5th grade music teacher. however, i'd probably encounter some difficulty locating them all on a map. =/

7. i taught first grade science in a low-income, environmentally-focused charter school for three years. my classroom was home to ants, crickets, mealworms, silkworms, moths, beetles, worms, and a tree frog named boris!

8. my favorite things to do are snuggle, play, and eat. (i'm a lot like my cat, mrs. bigglesworth. =)

9. i hate being cold but get really excited when it snows.

10. i feel hair is a nuisance and seriously consider shaving mine off. maybe this summer?

7 blogs i'm nominating


  1. Most of my skin has a coating of coconut oil right now, because it works better than anything else in the winter!

  2. thanks for the award! I've been working on it for a few days as someone else put my up to the challenge! it's been tough.

    i love that you had all those critters in the classroom! kids love that. I used to teach 4th grade and I taught the kids how to do a worm bin. We loved our worm pets.

    I put coconut oil on my face too. my face was sooo dry until I put it on overnight the other day. you are in good company. :-)

  3. Love ur facts! I am sure you still better in the orientation prob! I get lost everywhere..really everywhere!( have so many stories...)

  5. Wow to number seven! I'm in college to be an elementary education teacher, and it's my dream to teach in a school like that. Since I don't think there are any around here, I'm hoping that I will at least be allowed to incorporate gardening and animals into my room.
