Finishing the Sentence

July 14, 2014
When I open the fridge, I always hope I find...leftovers so I don't have to make a full meal, milk, and fresh fruit.  I'm on a smoothie kick.

My favorite article of clothing is...a tie between a pair of yoga pants that I lounge around in and my maxi dress.  I only own one maxi dress because it's hard to find maxi dresses long enough to fit my tall frame.

Last week I was really pissed when... I paid for an oil change and lube service at Wal-Mart and the guys marked "complete" for stuff they didn't even do!! They didn't vacuum or wash my windows AT ALL and they wrote that they did!

One thing nobody understands about me is...that I like to do stuff alone!  Everett nick named me Emily Dickinson because he said I'm in my room too much reading or catching up on blogs.  I guess I'm just friends with a lot of extroverts who prefer to be around people more than I do.

One thing I don't understand is...why many "standard" jobs in America give so little vacation time. Many European countries have the right idea.

The world would be a better place if...education was valued more than it is.

If I had a million dollars, I'd...pay off my student loans, invest some, save some, and would not worry about working for a few years and instead volunteer all over the world.

If I knew I'd die next week, this week I'd...spend every second doing my favorite things the best people I know.

If I could change one thing about myself, it would be...to have more confidence in myself and my abilities!


Something that can always make me happy is...getting a piece of snail mail from a good friend or relative.

Something I'll never blog about is...religion, politics, and student information.

If I could go anywhere I would go...on a trip to Central America, but for several months.  I've been wanting to do that for a long time!!

If I were an animal I would be a...wild horse...because I could roam free without having to carry around heavy people on my back all day.




My idea of a perfect day is... stress-free, full of laughter and time to unwind.

  4. So True. If the US had more vacation time, employees would be less stress & able to do their jobs better! :] // itsCarmen.com ☼

    1. Amen, Carmen! I've had friends quit their jobs to travel because they were sick of only getting 2 weeks off at a time.

  5. I'd love to spend a couple months traveling. And I'm with you- being alone is definitely needed often.

    1. Now that I have to consider looking for jobs outside of education, just having the standard 2 weeks off sickens me a little.

  7. I have the opposite problem with maxi dresses - they're often too long! Want to borrow some of my extra fabric?

  8. Smoothies are awesome - but I'm too lazy to make them. And I'm noticing a trend with people wanting alone time. I can definitely understand that! Every so often I need to lay around without anyone trying to engage my brain or judge me for being a slob.

  11. i feel you on the maxi dresses, i have like 2 or 3 that are actually long enough! i never buy them online anymore as they are always too short! and with the confidence, i think we all struggle with that. but fake it till you make it ;)

  12. Aww I love horses (although I may be a tiny bit afraid of them as well)! If I were an animal Id probably be a dog, a small one, but horses are so beautifully intimidating.

  13. I always hope to find milk in my fridge too. Of course my reasoning is because without milk I have two crying babies!!!
    I totally agree with you on vacation time. Corporations around here really need to offer more free time :)
