You know when you’re in a job interview, and the first question out of the interviewer’s mouth is, “So, tell me a little bit about yourself.” and you totally… blank? And for the life of you you cannot come up with a single, solitary interesting fact about yourself. At all. Ever. And you sit there awkwardly shifting in your seat, with your mouth hanging open, looking like a total and complete moron, and you’re wondering if they would even notice if you just got up and walked out without saying a word?
But because this isn’t a job interview, I will do my best to tell you a little something about myself. I have a Bachelor’s degree in writing, and a K-8 teaching license. If I ever get my life together, I may just finish the Master’s degree I started a couple of years back too. I’m a dedicated sister, daughter,and kitty mama. I’m also a Christian, a book snob, a divorcee, a ranter, a raver, a Catholic convert, a Catholic revert, a champion napper, and all around awesome peep. (Trust me on this one.)
Loves: I love Coca Cola, Jon Hamm, boyfriend jeans, potato chips, Chuck Taylors, “The Good Wife”, Ray Bradbury, Harper Lee, Dr. Seuss, spaghetti, naps, Mormons, rainy days, coffee, children’s books, Corn Nuts (I know… they’re disgusting… but DELICIOUS), old movies, gifs, owls, and politics.
Hates: I hate jerky husbands, divorce, anything to do with the Kardashians, mean people, Chobani yogurt without added sugar, stupid people, mullets, mouth breathers, the weird dude on the Trivago commercials, cliches, bar soap, running, poor writing, improper punctuation, run-on sentences, cat puke, and pharmacies that try to kill me.
There are certain foods I do not understand, and things that confuse me. There are lots of things that make me go, “Hmm…”. I try not to offend people, but sometimes inadvertently do, and if I do, let me just apologize ahead of time and advise you to get over it. I write a lot about teaching. I also write a lot about random, funny crap, because if there’s anything I love more than teaching, it’s writing about random funny crap. Just so we’re clear.
So, that’s me in a nutshell. Want to know more? Keep reading…
