I'm linking up with Blog Hoppin' for Teacher Week 2014!
1 - I'm a second year, second grade teacher in Charlotte, NC. My kids come a week from today. Cue panic attack.
10 Fun Facts About Yours Truly
2 - I have a major sweet tooth. (Thanks, dad.) My two vices are candy and Coca Cola classic. I also love chocolate milk. I am a child.
3 - I am overly competitive. Like, if you want to get to know me on a too-deep level, initiate a game of rummy. Or Monopoly. Or say "I'll race you home."
4 - My middle name has been passed down four generations. My great-grandfather had to make up a middle name for himself when he enlisted in the Army. They wouldn't let him enroll without one! That middle name was given to my grandfather and then to me. How cool is that story?
5 - I like to eat (obviously) but I do NOT like to cook. I hate the prep. I CAN cook, though. I make mean green beans. My favorite meal is chicken parmesan, but I've never tried to make it myself.
6 - I'm currently a victim of wanderlust. I've been to 4 countries (not near enough) and 22 states. I will have visited all 50 states someday. I collect mugs from places I've visited. See this post.
7 - I loooovveee football. It's a side effect of attending the University of Alabama and I'm convinced it's also genetic. A love for football runs in my family as much as competitiveness does. (Guess who's going to win the family fantasy league this year? ME.)
8 - Reading is my favorite relaxing activity. I make time for it during the school year, but it's hard! This summer I read The Fault in Our Stars, The Goldfinch, The Best of Me, The Martian, Let's Pretend This Never Happened, and Sharp Objects... just to name a few. I plan to write my own book someday called The Gym Diaries about all of the crazy people I have to deal with in my gym. (Just kidding. Maybe.)
9 - I'm a perfectionist and have a little OCD. I'm pretty sure my coworker and wall-sharer, Jess, thinks I'm insane. I often have her look at my stuff for her to reassure me that everything is perfect enough and that I shouldn't redo it.
10 - My favorite movie is 500 Days of Summer (followed closely by Grease) and my favorite TV series is The OC. I've developed a love-hate relationship with reality TV and enjoy watching the Kardashians and HGTV while I'm on the treadmill. (P.S. I'm an A-list celebrity on Kim Kardashian Hollywood. A word of advice: DO NOT download the game if you haven't already. It's addictive. If you have already, may the odds be ever in your favor.)
WHEW. I just reread everything I wrote (because perfectionists have to proofread everything) and that was exhausting. I wear myself out. Time for a nap.
(Fact #11: I love naps.)
