My favorite ice cream flavor…. hmm…I like all sorts of ice cream flavors. At Cold Stone I love getting chocolate and banana ice cream mixed up with bits of Heath Bar in it. Mmmm…. unfortunately, the closest Cold Stone is about 30 minutes from my house. 🙁 So when I am having an ice cream craving I like to buy Denali Moose Tracks ice cream – specifically the Chocolate kind. Chocolate ice cream with peanut butter cups and fudge. I like to pour some of that Reece Peanut Butter Cup Shell over the top. And if I am feeling really crazy (which usually I am!) I also sometimes dump Heath baking bits on top! Mmmm…. so yummy! I didn’t even know until this very minute that my favorite kind of ice cream has its own website!
I did not go away to college like most. My town has a community college and it partnered with a nearby college to create a what’s called a 2 + 2 program. I did 2 years of classes and earned my Associate’s degree from my community college and then I took the last 2 years of classes from the partnered university and took my classes in my hometown from local teachers and professors. Some of the classes were taught at the community college and some were taught in actual teachers’ classrooms at their schools. I had a lot of great experiences during the program. I guess one of my favorite memories would be our graduation ceremony. We could walk through the graduation line at the university from which our degree actually came but most of my classmates chose not to do that (although I did). It was a huge ceremony like most college graduations are. However, our class also had its own smaller ceremony with just those of us who did the 2+2 program at the community college. It was nice to have been with the same people throughout the two years. The smaller ceremony was more intimate and meaningful than the large one at the university.
Sports? Really?? I don’t “do” sports. Seriously, I think professional sports are the biggest joke. Why should someone get paid thousands or millions more to simply shoot a ball through a hoop than people out there who save lives? Especially when we have so many people who do not have enough money to simply survive? Okay… I will get off my soap box now. If I HAVE to pick a favorite sports team then I pick the Nashville Predators Hockey team. Having a Canadian husband means that by default I am exposed to hockey more than the average person I guess. 🙂
I must admit that my favorite fast food place is…. McDonald’s! Yes, and I am not ashamed to admit it. They have THE BEST fast food Sprite there is! I LOVE getting a big $1.00 Sprite after a long day teaching. Their fries? The BEST fast food French fry in my opinion.
Right now I have fallen back in love with reading. As a kid, I used to get piles and piles of books from the library. I would literally sit around all weekend long and read for hours and hours. I was big into series books – The Baby-Sitters Club, Sweet Valley Twins, etc. In the past few years I stopped reading for pleasure for the most part. I read to the kids at school but that’s not the same. When my husband and I found The Hunger Games books, I fell in love with them but he mostly read them all to me. Yes, we get into bed at night and he reads to me. 😀 Last month, my husband had to go away to a conference to present and I was left alone for a few days. I downloaded some eBooks into my Nook app on my iPhone and I have been reading like a maniac ever since! I’ve read The Host, Defiance, the Beautiful Creatures series, The Mortal Instruments series, Divergent series, Matched series, Delirium series, and now I’m into the Fallen series. Yes, I still love a good series. 🙂
