To accept an award, please link back to the person who gave you the award and list 7 things about you! We all want to know more about our blogger friends. Finally, feel free to pass along your award to other fabulous bloggers like you.
So here goes, 7 things that you may or may not know about yours truly...
1.) I am desperately trying to find a middle school math teaching position for the 2009-2010 school year. I recently got certified to teach Math 4th-8th grade and have applied to like 15 school districts. Seems like it should be a piece of cake to get a teaching job, especially a math one - but the economy is making it a very competitive year and at the same time lots of school districts are cutting their budgets and trying to get by with fewer teachers. Anyway, so this is a big stress in my life right now, please say prayers, cross your fingers or do a rain dance for me....whatever works! Thanks! ;)
2.) I used to say that summer was my favorite time of the year but I have recently decided that it is actually the fall. I love football season (esp. TEXAS football), Halloween (my favorite holiday) and the cooler (non 100 degree) temps.
3.) I used to be really involved in my sorority during college. I was the Social chair and also helped out a lot during rush. I think all of that participation burned me out though, bc now I only do the bare minimum required of me with any social organization I am apart of.
4.) However, I do love planning parties and entertaining, especially when there is a theme
involved (thus, my love for Halloween)!
5.) Mason and I knew each other in college, but were just friends (he actually dated one of my pledge sisters for awhile). He definitely had a crush on me by our senior year though and one night when we were out on 6th street (at a bar called Mooseknuckle) he bought me a shot of tequilla and we kissed. He says it was because I had the hots for him, I said it was because I wanted free drinks... anyway, the rest is history... ;)
6.) I used to be in drill team during high school. I very much miss being able to learn new dance routines and perform them at half time or at pep rallies. Those were the days...
7.) When I was younger we used to have a brazilian nanny named Elsie who barely spoke english and we would watch spanish soap operas all day long. I also taught her how to ask my dad for a raise!
I would also like to pass this award along to Cee @ Curiosity for being such a great blogger! :)
