Truths for Mature Humans, such as myself. Right.

Good morning! I found this somewhere…won’t mention where in case some of you are getting tired of hearing about it…but it starts with a p and ends with an interest. Moving on…

There was no easy way to format this post, so you can read the graphic first, then scroll down to see my thoughts on some of the points. I would love for you to leave a comment about the points you can relate to…I think it would be fun to see how “mature” we all are. 😉

Most of this is so true but I don't agree about the HS kids.  Maybe as a teacher I'm too close to issue to be objective though.


(*If I left it blank…it means I don’t have much of an opinion on that particular point. I realize you are going to be doing a lot of scrolling back and forth anyway, so I’m trying to help you out here.)

1. My computer history is not so exciting, so this isn’t really necessary for me. I can tell you exactly what you’d find: blog, pinterest, facebook, e-mail, web-md, google…and that’s about it.

2. Hate, hate, hate that. It does happen to me from time to time. Usually my tactic to deal with it is to try and  confuse the person I’m arguing with to distract from the fact that I’m wrong.

3. I honestly do. And the naps are one of the main things I miss about college. Now those were the good days…

4. I would definitely want to use a sarcasm font, but I can see myself getting into trouble with it too.

5. Chris and I usually try, then just give up and crumple them into a ball.

6. Cursive? Probably not necessary, but I still like to use it when I write. Actually, when I’m not using my “oh-so-proper” kindergarten teacher handwriting, my personal style is a combination of print, cursive, capitals and lowercase.

7. So true. The same is true for Ken, my GPS. (Yes, I named my GPS. The dude talking has an australian accent…and that may or may not have been the reason I chose that particular GPS.)

8. Morbid? Kind of. But I did actually have that thought the other day.

9. I was just having this conversation with another teacher. When will the tiredness stop?! Apparently NEVER. Boo.

10. No comment.

11. Another true statement. Sometimes I push through, sometimes we have a little something I like to call “extra recess.”



14. This thing is reading me like a book…so true! I’ve stopped even buying clothes that say they require ironing. I’ve finally admitted that it’s just not going to happen.

15. I do get a little annoyed when this happens to me, but I know I do it pretty regularly to other people…so I guess I can’t say much. In my defense, it usually happens when I’m returning a series of calls. If you don’t answer, I move on down the list!





20. Yeah…I wouldn’t last 5 minutes in the ghetto. I’ve got no street smarts.

21. So many “cartoons” are this way, like Shrek. It’s kind of wild when you consider the amount of adult humor that is in most of those movies.

22. This was especially true when I lived in an upstairs apartment. I hated carrying in groceries.


24. Or sadness and hunger. Or stress and hunger. Blah. Let’s just say that lately I’ve been so hungry ALL THE TIME that I’m having trouble distinguishing much of anything from hunger.

25. I do this with my neighbor all the time. All the time.


27. I knew it was time to wash a pair of my pants the other day when I could slide them down without unbuttoning or unzipping them. Glad nobody tried to “pants me” that day.


29. Which is exactly why I don’t lean back in my chair.

30. Once, when learning to ride my bike, I ran into a truck that was stopped at a stop sign. So embarassing. (Not exactly sure how that relates, but I thought of it nonetheless.)

31.  This happens to me most typically right at the start of school. I have so much going on, in life and in my head, that I have trouble focusing on the even the most simple things.

32. Again, no truer statement. I set my regular alarm clock and my phone, and I can snooze them both with my eyes shut. It’s kind of dangerous really…I’ve been known to turn them off in my sleep. No bueno when I’m supposed to be waking up.

Me in a Nutshell.

Today I have a few little vignettes for y’all…little glimpses of what makes me who I am.

Not gonna lie, who I am can be a little weird sometimes.

Let’s get on with it…

not good for my hypochondriac-self


WebMD is my #1 “frenemy” (think friend + enemy). It is my automatic go-to when I start feeling something a little off in my body, or when I want to self-diagnose to see if I can self-medicate. Of course, my searches on WebMD hardly ever lead me down the 0ver-the-counter route. Typically they lead me down the “oh-my-gosh I think I’m about to kick it” route.

It is for that exact reason that I’m trying to wean myself off of WebMD. It’s not good for my mental health.

Me into We


I think I’ve only written like a million posts on this topic. (Or maybe 10ish. Whatever.) I learn more about this everyday, and I’m thankful for my patient husband and forgiving Lord.



This one just made me laugh. I’m not always an inappropriate joke-teller, but get me in the right mood and I can be pretty funny. Or so I’m told.

best in the world!


My Mom is more than great. She is my best friend, and I aspire to be like her in so many ways…as a wife, parent, friend, teacher, and as a human being in general. If one were to look back in my call history, she would without a doubt be the recipient of the majority of the phone calls I’ve made. She is absolutely fabulous, and I do love her lots!

bwahahaha. sooo true!!!


If I’ve tried to explain this to Chris once, I’ve tried to explain this to him 1,000 times. He looked over my should when I was pinning it and said “Hey, haven’t you said something like that to me before?”

Uh, yes.

Yes I have.




Thanks to my crazy husband, I’m never short on humor or laughter in my life. I think being able to laugh together is one of our biggest strengths as a couple, and it’s definitely one of the things I enjoy most about our relationship. many times have we said this?


Ever pull up next to someone at a stop light and look over to see them just jamming to whatever song is on their radio? I mean singing (at what looks like the top of their lungs), dancing around, making weird faces as they try to hit the high notes…and absolutely oblivious to the fact that there are other people watching?

Yeah. That’s me.

I love to sing, and I love to sing loud. This does get me in trouble on occasion when the actual singer and I have a little discrepency on what the real words of the song are. I usually blush a little and stammer my way through the rest of the song. Chris usually laughs so hard he can hardly stand it. Haters gonna hate…I just keep doing my thang!

too true @Laine Bryant


Touche. I remember reading a chapter book backwards once just because I ran out of books and wanted to try something new. My mom would usually have to force me to put the book down and go outside to play…and if I was in the car, then I was going to have a book in my hand.

Not much has changed.

thought it was just me!


I read this and said “YES!”

That is all.

And that’s all I’ve got for ya today…now you know a little more about me than you did before you logged on. Lucky you! 😉

KEEP CALM & IF YOU CAN RELATE…THEN LEAVE ME A COMMENT! (Because no one likes to feel all alone in their weirdness.)

P.S. – Thank you for reading my blog…especially on days when it’s just little snippets of information about a silly girl. You guys are awesome!
