50 things about me:

  1. Unless I initiate it's probably not a great idea to talk to me in the morning, especially on a topic I really don't want to discuss.
  2. I apparently think very highly of myself (see 1.)
  3. My dad may say on occasion that it's not a good idea to talk to me in the evening either.
  4. It's possible that it may simply be a good idea not to talk to me.
  5. I can get up on time and still be late to work.
  6. I'm not sure if I'm going to succeed as a teacher (see 1. and 5. and, well, 4.)
  7. I blog at work.
  8. My parents are SAINTS - my mom especially (nothing against you, Dad, it's just that Mom puts up with WAY MORE from me!)
  9. I know I need to grow up because I hate feeling like I'm being treated like a kid or that I am incapable of being a grown-up when I run out of time and have to have my mom do things for me.
  10. I am a fully capable baker and cook with very little time on my hands to do either.
  11. Sometimes I yell, and I don't always know why.
  12. I have to eat every 3-4 hours to keep from being nasty.
  13. 12. isn't always true. Sometimes I'm just nasty.
  14. Some days I'm in tears because I scare myself.
  15. I am a sinner saved by grace.
  16. I can't spell occasion the first time - ever.
  17. I watch too much NCIS.
  18. I love teenagers.
  19. I love Jesus and would be an even bigger mess without Him.
  20. I want to live in Greece for a year.
  21. I want to live in a musical.
  22. I know how to type and actually enjoy doing it.
  23. I wish I knew Spanish.
  24. I wish I had kept up with my piano lessons.
  25. I was born in England, and I really want to be there sometimes.
  26. I think 2 Timothy is an incredibly challenging book.
  27. Pride and Prejudice is my favorite novel.
  28. I'm a military B.R.A.T.
  29. My abs hurt right now because I've started learning Pilates as of yesterday.
  30. I miss pizza.
  31. I miss ice cream.
  32. I need to save this and get to work. (I did - break time again)
  33. My joints pop.
  34. When I set my mind to something, I get it done.
  35. If I think something is pointless it's very hard for me to get it done.
  36. I have amazing friends.
  37. I love to laugh.
  38. Samwise Gamgee is one of my literary heroes.
  39. Edmund Pevensie is another.
  40. I blow my nose a lot.
  41. My hands need lots of moisturizing.
  42. Making this list is making me feel better. (I'm shootin' for 50 now...)
  43. I enjoy list making.
  44. I really love checking things off of a to-do list. (I even write things on them that I got done but didn't plan to do, just so I can check them off!)
  45. Praying is like breathing for me - I need to do it or my soul will shrivel and die.
  46. I don't pray enough.
  47. I don't drink enough water either.
  48. I love singing.
  49. I love to dance.
  50. I love life - all of its joys, sorrows, happy times and sucky times, every heartache and every reason to jump for the sheer pleasure of being excited about something! I want to live my life to its fullest by Jesus' definition and I will - with that goal in mind, His strength behind me, and His love to carry me through the good and the bad.


  1. This is a great list. And you are clever.

    Do you add an extra i to "occasion" because I think I might have problems with that word, too. And vacuum. I lost my 6th grade classroom spelling bee because I added an extra c and I've been doing it ever since. *sigh*

  2. Thank you.

    I actually add an extra 's' the first time I spell occasion (even that time - it's automatic). And I think the spelling bee people were wrong - I spell vacuum with two 'c's too! But let's face it - it's a really weird word!
