Monday Mania

Happy Monday, everyone. Remember when I said I was going to be better about posting? I'm hoping I'll make good on my promise one of these days. This past week was a pretty crazy one, as I went back and forth to Houston no less than three times. My fingers are crossed that some good will come out of all that driving! Anyway, I enjoyed a wonderfully relaxing weekend at home. I was able to leave behind the resumes, pencil skirts, and heels in favor of shorts, sandals, family, and friends, and it felt great to leave behind thoughts of the real world, even if just for a weekend. As of last Saturday, graduation is only four short weeks away and though I could (really) not be more excited about my future, I also hate the season of "lasts," that is so inevitable second semester senior year. As of last Thursday I am officially done with class, and the next time I step into a classroom, it will be my own. Weird.

Anyway, it's been a while since I've posted a survey for you guys, so here's a pretty random one for your reading enjoyment.

1. What time did you get up this morning? 7:07am, and though I am usually an early-riser, I got back to Austin just after 12:30am, and it was a little harder to drag myself out of bed with enough time to get ready for work.

2. How do you like your steak? Medium rare.

3. What was the last film you saw at the cinema? The new Wes Anderson movie – The Grand Budapest Hotel. It is very different from the type of movie I would normally choose to see, but I really enjoyed it.

4. If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be? This is such a hard question, because when all is said and done, I don’t ever want to leave Texas, but there are many, many places I would like to visit. Australia is up high on that list, as is Switzerland, and many mountain states in the U.S.

5. What did you have for breakfast? Egg whites and spinach, classic. With a mango on the side.

6. What is your favorite cuisine? I’m going to have to go with Mexican food. That, or American food. Pretty standard.

7. What foods do you dislike? I don’t dislike Italian food at all, but I normally won’t seek out an Italian restaurant on my own because it can often be hard for me to find something that I can eat.

8. Favorite dressing? Balsamic Vinaigrette, especially from La Madeleine.

9. Cup 1/2 empty or 1/2 full? I like to think I’m a half full kind of girl.

10. Where would you want to retire?
I don’t think retirement is on my radar quite yet!

11. Favorite time of day? Sunset.

12. Where were you born? Houston, Texas

13. What is your favorite sport to watch? I absolutely LOVE watching sports. Football and basketball are probably my two favorites, but I’ll honestly watch just about anything.

14. How many siblings do you have? One little brother. 

15. Are you a morning person or a night person? Morning, for sure.

16. What did you want to be when you were little? I think I’ve always wanted to be a teacher (since at least the third grade), but I also went through a period of time when I wanted to be an astronaut. I had a telescope and everything. However, my astronomy class quickly put that dream to rest. 

17. What is your best childhood memory? I don’t think I could pick just one, but I have some really great memories from the sports teams I played on as a child.

18. Always wear your seat belt? Always. 

19. Been in a car accident? I’ve been in a couple, actually, and thankfully each one has been very minor in the fact that no one was hurt. All thanks to the fact that we were all wearing seatbelts!

20. Any pet peeves? I think this question pops up every single survey, but I’ll go ahead and answer it anyway. Tardiness. I’m sure you saw that one coming from a mile away.

21. Favorite pizza toppings? Any vegetable. In fact, I need to bring back my homemade dairy-free vegetable pizza. It’s been too long since I’ve enjoyed one of those!

22. Favorite Flower? Sunflower. 
23. Favorite ice cream? Mint chocolate chip, or chocolate chocolate chip.

24. How many times did you fail your driver's test? I passed the first time, but I can honestly say that is probably because I didn’t actually have to drive as a part of my driver’s test. If that were the case, I probably still wouldn’t have my license, as I can’t parallel park to save my life.

25. In which store would you choose to max out your credit card? Anthropologie. For sure.

26. What was your favorite vacation? Hawaii, California, or Colorado.

27. Coffee Drinker? I’m not going to lie, I am pretty proud of the fact that I made it through 13 weeks of student teaching without a single drop of coffee.

And with that, I'm going to return to my book. It's weird not having any school work to do, but you certainly won't hear any complaints from me! Have a great Monday!
