We had a SNOW DAY today, so no fun tales from the front line.

Instead of fun kid tales, I thought I'd share with you a few things you might not know about me.

Things I don't like..

  • bad grammar. I know, I know I'm guilty of typing like I talk and that's fine, it's when people mess up there, their, and they're or your and you're. It hurts my brain to read things like that from adults.  Exception: texting. There's just not enough room to type everything properly.
  • the toilet paper roll being fed the wrong way. Again, not a big deal in the grand scheme of things, but my OCD tendencies enjoy the toilet paper coming from the top. Not the bottom.
  • horrible drivers.
  • negative nancies. I don't like when people are negative about everything. Yes, I have my bad days but I like to think that I have a pretty positive attitude about life and I work with students who come from horrible homes, so I have very little empathy for people who are all "my life sucks because...". It's okay to have a bad day, but not okay to have a bad outlook on life.
  • loud breathers. I can.not.stand people who breathe loudly. I feel like I'm sitting with Darth Vader and I usually can't comprehend what is going on because I'm constantly thinking, close your mouth and breath so I can hear what's going on around me.
Things I love...
  • the internet. Self explanatory, I think.
  • people who shake hands with integrity. There's nothing worse than shaking hands with someone whose hand is limp.
  • people who are honest. Seriously, when I'm looking for advice, please be honest. Even if you think it's not what I want to hear, be honest.
  • yoga pants. I could live in those things.
  • making up words. Yes, it goes against my feelings on grammar, but I love making up words.
  • anyone who uses adverbs. And uses them correctly.
  • having an honest-to-goodness talk about education. I know, I'm a HUGE nerd, but I strive to be the best teacher I can be.
  • sleeping on clean sheets. I'm talking fresh out of the laundry. Bonus points if they are still warm from the dryer.
  • a nice surprise. This could be anything. A card or package in the mail, an email from a friend who just wants to say hello, an unexpected 2 hour delay in school, or surprising others!
So, there you go. Things I don't like and things I love. Of course, family, friends, and the pup go in the category of things I love, but you already know that about me!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love your likes and dislikes and I think that I agree with most all of them. I hate bad grammar and bad drivers. Ick...and the t.p. I will definitely refeed it if it is wrong!

There is nothing better than clean sheets. I love them! And I can nerd out to a good education convo!

I'm right there with you on the bad grammar (maybe because I have a degree in English) and the toilet paper. I love clean sheets. I think I'm going to wash mine now. :)

I'm a 'over the top' TP'er too!
It irritates me if it comes from the bottom! :)
