Who do you call when you need to vent?  I usually call my close friend Everett and vent to him if it is something teaching related.  We took classes together for three years and vented to each other about our  frustrating program quite a bit!  He is a great listener and always has sound advice.


Where do you go when you need alone time?  My problem lately is that I haven't had very much alone time and it is causing me to be a grouch!  I usually just go to my room because that's where my laptop is and there is a comfy space where I can read.

What is your favorite alone time activity? Blogging and reading!  Although, I find myself reading less these days.  My literature professor had us reading a lot of children's and adolescent literature while I was taking classes at OSU.

What is something we should all stop and read right now?  I finally read To Kill a Mockingbird this year, and if you're one of the few that hasn't read it, I would recommend that!  I normally don't choose to read classics, but this book was one I enjoyed.


Who do you wish would read your blog that doesn't already?  Some of my friends that I'm close with in real life don't read this, and I kind of wish that they would!  I'm not offended--keeping up with blogs is just not their thing!

To Kill a Mockingbird is one of my all time favorites. I can't believe you just now read it!!!!!! Better late than never! ;P
No alone time turns me into a grouch, too.

I'm totally opposite. I don't really want my IRL friends to read my blog.
I've never read To Kill a Mockingbird. I should add that to my to do list :)

For some reason it was never required reading for me in middle school like it seemed to be for everyone else.

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

It wasn't like how I expected, but I mean that in a good way.

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

I, (along with almost everyone else who has read it), really recommend it!

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

I guess I should get used to having no alone time if I ever have kids, and I do hope to have children one day!

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

The characters were so great! I loved Atticus!

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

When I was forced to read the "classics" in school, I didn't enjoy a lot of them and thought they were boring. I thought that this book might be boring as well, but it was far from it!

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

Oh, I have not told a lot of my IRL friends that I blog, but I would be happy if I knew the ones that I told were stopping by regularly!

Im the opposite I dont want anyone that I know in real life to read my blogs.
I read to Kill a mockingbird in 9th grade but didnt really like it until I read it again in college.

I haven't read that book yet! I keep meaning to, but maybe one day I'll get around to it, since you say it's a must!

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

Oh, there are plenty of acquaintances or even friends that I do not want to read my blog...I even made up a separate Facebook and Twitter account for my blog for that reason. I guess I just really want my bff's to read!

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

It's intriguing, I like that it's told from Scout's perspective, and the characters are well-developed. Let me know if you ever read it!
