Day 30: My Favorite Comfort Food.

It’s the final day of my #30DayChallenge! I’m a little sad to see it end. It’s been a lot of fun writing every single day, but I don’t know if I can keep it up without some set list to work off of.

It makes me a little sad, actually…. Wait a minute!

Is that why whoever came up with this challenge picked Comfort Food as the final post? They knew the writer would be saddened by the end of the challenge and wanted them to be prepared for such a thing, with their favorite comfort food handy and ready to go?

How very thoughtful!

Unfortunately, I’m not sure it will work for me. My absolute favorite comfort food is simply potato chips. Specifically Lay’s Original potato chips. Continue reading Day 30: My Favorite Comfort Food.

Day 29: A Weird Quirk of Mine

I have oh so many quirks… The weirdest one (and in my opinion the coolest) is that I pick up other people’s accents. I’m pretty good at it, if I do say so myself. It comes from my theater background.  I’m not the best, but I do have a nice array of them that I keep handy when needed.

I say when needed because you have no idea how helpful it is to be able to randomly jump into a Jersey accent when trying to teach children who can’t keep their mouths closed.

This is a thing that I have yet to figure out about teaching: I don’t know when it became acceptable to talk over your teachers… not subs, but actual teachers. When I put the kiddos in a seating arrangement, they complain throughout the lesson, or worse they try to talk across the room. If I let them choose their own seat, they ignore me completely. When I speak to them about it, they tell me that’s just how it is. When I point out that it’s disrespectful, they tell me that’s how they act at home, too.  Continue reading Day 29: A Weird Quirk of Mine

Day 28: Top Things On My Bucket List

As I just finished a lengthy post about the movie Insurgentthis post is probably going to be rather short. I’m just going to give you a brief look at my bucket list (like just 5 things). We know how I tend to be wordy, so here’s hoping that I don’t go overboard.

Go to Ireland

I have this fascination with the island of Atlantis. I even had a dream that I found it by finding a map in a cave off the coast of Ireland. It was a recurring dream. I had it when I was twelve for a month straight, and then a modified version of it again when I was nearly 21.

It may be just a silly thing, but it was enough to make me want to go there. And one day I will. Continue reading Day 28: Top Things On My Bucket List

Why Four from Insurgent is the Perfect Guy

When I began thinking about this post, I was going to write a review of Insurgent, the movie based on the book by Virginia Roth, but I noticed that I kept coming back to Four, the male love interest opposite our heroine, Tris. So why mess with a good thing, right? Any discussion of the character will have to involve discussion of the movie, so it’s a bit of a review.

But also, since I’m discussing the movie: Spoiler alert!

But gentlemen, if you’re looking to find out what women want, then go see this movie and take notes on Four.   Continue reading Why Four from Insurgent is the Perfect Guy
