If You Really Knew Me...

In an effort to get to know each other and trust each other, I'd like you to take a little risk and post five things that you'd like other people in the class to know about you. The quirkier/more unique and personal, the better.Here are my five:

1. I am a terrible sport and throw a fit when I lose--especially when it comes to board and card games.

2. I have a phobia of people throwing up.

3. I like to watch one rerun of "Scrubs" before going to bed because I find it relaxing.

4. Sometimes I'd rather curl up in bed and read a book than go out and socialize. I would have never admitted this in high school because I used to think that it made me a dork. Now I'm automatically a dork because I'm old and a teacher, so I don't really care.

5. I really want to be writer, but I've never submitted anything to publication because I'm afraid of my work being rejected.

  60. To Sean: How many pounds of bass have you caught over your whole career?

    2. My best friend is my sister

    3. I have been dong motoX for five years

    4. I'm a dog person

    5. I LOVE FAMILY GUY!!!!

  62. 1. The relationship between the two people in this painting suggests they are husband and wife, because they look like an older couple running a farm. With the looks on their faces, I think they've been through a long marriage.
    2. I think this painting is called American Gothic because of the farm house behind them, their clothes, and the pitchfork in the man's hand. They symbolize the old days, were people had to work really hard to live. This gives you an image that in those days people had been through a lot. I agree with this painting.
