I am pretty sure...

  • I am pretty sure that I am probably one of the worse drivers in the world. If I had to pass the driving test again, I'd probably fail. 
  • I am pretty sure that I have the cutest Valentine in the world. Will (my four-year-old nephew) asked me to be his Valentine today!
  • I am pretty sure that I have been having crazy dreams lately with uninvited visitors.  I may or may not end up hurting someone if this visitor keeps showing up in my dreams.

  • I am pretty sure that the Jackson Ward has the best Young Women ever. I love them so much and I am so excited to work with them. 
  • I am pretty sure that I have a love/hate relationship with my job. I hate going to work everyday but I also don't like not going to work.
  • I am pretty sure that I may give the worse advice ever. So, if I ever give you advice you should probably do the opposite of what I tell you to do. 
  • I am pretty sure that I look like I've "let myself go" every day I don't put on make-up. 
  • I am pretty sure that I am completely happy with my life right now. 
That's all

I'm A...

One of my more recent pet peeves is when people define themselves by their careers.  I really could care less what you do for a living.  It is crazy that in America when asked, "What do you do?" people automatically answer with their job description.  The crazy thing is we do so much more.  I am also annoyed that people define themselves by their jobs because it prevents me from getting to know that person as a person.  So, I am going to try my best to describe all the roles I play that contribute to who I am as a person without divulging too terribly much.

I'm a teacher.
I'm a daughter.
I'm a sister.
I'm an aunt.
I'm a friend.
I'm a lifelong learner.
I'm a reader.
I'm a baker.
I'm a dreamer.
I'm a stargazer.
I'm a hopeless romantic.
I'm a Mormon.
I'm a listener.
I'm an animal lover.
I'm a know-it-all.
I'm a napper.
I'm a cuddler.
I'm an online shop-a-holic.
I'm a writer.
I'm a thinker.
I'm a critic.
I'm a southerner.
I'm a lover of life.

All these roles I play in life really do contribute to who I am as a person, how I feel about various things, and why I form certain opinions.  However, if you just looked at me as a teacher, you would miss all the other things that help define who I am as a person.  Thus, be careful when you meet a new friend or your in a casual conversation.  Don't be afraid to share who you really are!
