Confessional Thursday

Happy Thursday, y'all!  Can you believe it's already the end of the week?  Spring break is inching closer and I am so ready.  We've got sixth grade orientation today so my first three classes will have half the students in them, and tomorrow we are back n the computer lab finishing typing our expository essays--then it's freedom for a week!

Lots of bloggers I follow participate in the Confessional Thursday link up, so I decided to try it out!


1. I have made myself a morning person after getting married.  Every morning during the weekday, I am up at 5 AM.  I get my blog reading done, start laundry, put away dishes--you name it and I'm up doing it.  When I don't have to work, I'm up anywhere between 6:30-7:30.  I prefer being up early rather than staying up late--10 PM is late for me!

2. I'm a very fast reader!  There have been many times where I've read whole books in one day.  That talent came in handy many times in college when I would wait last minute to read for my lit classes :)

3. I love eating pizza so much--I just don't eat it very often since I track my calories.  I had enough calories left for dinner last night, so we went to Mellow Mushroom sit on the patio and eat pizza!!
I tried the Thai Dye from Mellow Mushroom!  Two slices of a small pizza were 740 calories.  I had A LOT of calories left over for dinner because I didn't eat very much during the school day.

4. I am very much into routines.  As much as I love going on vacation, I'm always ready to get back home so I can get back into a routine.

5. My husband is a Type I diabetic and has been since he was 4 years old.  I always get really nervous before we go on vacation together because I worry about him having low blood sugars in the mornings and if I would have to call for help.  

6. I've been wearing reading glasses since the third grade, but because my eyes are continuing to get worse, my reading glasses now have transformed into wearing them whenever I need my eyes to focus.  I hope I don't ever have to wear glasses full-time and I'm definitely not ever wearing contacts--not touching my eye, thank you!

7. I had a student write an essay about how I was her favorite teacher.  Her three reasons: my clothes, make up, and personality.  Although it was the sweetest thing ever (and I learned how observant she is haha), not once did she mention anything about my teaching style.  Guess she hasn't learned anything in my class--she only checks out my clothes each day haha!

8. Speaking of clothes (which are my absolute fav), I almost majored in fashion merchandising instead of English.  I prayed about it for a week in college right before I had to really make a decision about which route I was going to take, and I really felt like the Lord was calling me to English.  I knew that if I went the fashion route, I would get so caught up in labels to where they would become my identity--and not the Lord.  So I teach English in nice outfits haha!

  1. We've already established that we have reading quickly in common. I am definitely a creature of habit, too. I love a routine!

  2. I love routines as well and I'm an early bird, too...although you're an earlier bird than me :) Sleeping in on the weekends for me is like 7:30. If I sleep till 8 or later it's a rarity. Love that your student wrote that about you--Im sure she listens in your class...you at least know she's paying attention to SOME things! haha

  4. I just love this linkup! I started wearing glasses when I was 7 and moved on to contacts at 13...fast forward almost 20 years and here we are. I literally can't see anything without them. If you're standing right in front of me, I can tell you there's a person there, but no clue who it is. I think the essay your student wrote is sweet and hilarious at the same time; either way, you're making a huge impact on her life whether it's her education or future fashion sense! haha

  5. I am also a creature of habit and I feel the same way. I love vacations but after a few days, I'm so ready to get back to my normal and routine. Also, 10 is late for me too and I'm not a super early riser. Usually between 6-7 (and thats probably because my mini wakes me up then! haha)

  6. Gosh, I so wish that I was an early bird. The things I could get done if I could just wake up an hour earlier! I drag myself out of bed at 6 and barely have enough time to get ready, get Jacob to school, and get to work on time.

  7. I love a routine and go bananas without one! I'm not up as early as you these days, but I blame that on the fact that I don't get to sleep through the night right now [babies... ;]. If I do get a full nights sleep, I like to wake nice and early and get things done. So much can be done in the wee hours of the morning and I feel like I'm so much more productive with my day if I get up early. Also, I taught English! Fun fun. Those kiddos can be very entertaining and always keep you very busy. - I found you through the link up and am excited to follow along now! :)

  8. I'm totally a morning person now that I'm married too! It makes my days so much more productive :) That's so interesting that you thought about going into fashion!

  9. I'm so with you on wearing contacts! No thank you - I'd rather just wear my glasses all the time. I almost majored in fashion merchandising too but instead changed to business management! - Leah Chasing Texas

  10. Your student is so sweet to write an essay about your good style! That's an awesome compliment! Our spring break (called March Break in Canada) is this week and my husband is loving having the week off! Hope you have a good last day before you're off for a bit!

  11. How sweet about your student writing an essay about how you were her favorite! I'm finishing up my student teaching and I've come to learn from the older educators around me that students may not remember your teaching style or content, but they'll remember how you acted with them. The fact that she loves your personality says everything you need to know!

  12. I love reading these confession things! I really want to get better at mornings. They have never been my thing, but I am SO much more productive when I wake up at a decent time. Also, hilarious to me how you hate contacts so much! Hahaha. I would die without my contacts!

  13. I am such a morning person after being married, ha! (in fact being up this late is something I only do later in the week since I know the weekend is almost here). Seriously, LOVE routines!
