For Ms. Jolly

A. Each tagged person must post 8 things about themselves on their journal.
B. At the end, you have to choose and tag 5 people.

1. I am loving school, which is something I never thought I would say. I realize now that all this time I was afraid to fail at it so I avoided it all together. I’m still insecure about my ability in this area, and it continues to make me uncomfortable.

2. I have officially been working the same job for three years (with a few title changes and raises) as of this month.

3. My favorite board games are Trivial Pursuit (90’s Edition), Cranium (Jolly and Seanzy, I want a rematch!), and Stratego.

4. I’m going to sell my car this Spring for something more practical (i.e. four doors, better gas mileage).

5. I am terrible with proper comma usage. Every paper I’ve written for school so far had at least three comma splices in it; therefore I’ve seen ‘CS’ in large red ink more than I care to say.

6. Like most early twenty-somethings, I want to change the world. However, I don’t want to tell anyone this for fear of breaking the illusion that I am a deeply cynical and logical person.

7. My social anxiety issues that are popping up more and more at work. They take the form of tiny panic attacks before in-person meetings and I usually try to avoid them in favor of conference calls if I can swing it. Even the calls can be painful sometimes.

8. I am obsessed with crock pots and crock pot recipes, if anyone has any to share, I want ‘em!

I'm supposed to "tag" 5 other people, but instead this will be an open invitation to everyone who wishes to participate.

I make a mean beef stew. Though I ganked it off the back of a seasoning box lol, if you want it let me know!

* hugs* see you in a few weeks girl!

Ugh! Cockpot was on my Christmas list this year but apparently, it doesn't really exist out here. The UK has them but there are still voltage issues even from there. And I've had bad luck with converting voltage with anything that heats up.

I miss Cranium! I brought it to AMS with me. Now I've got to get all the cool kids to believe it's hip enough for them to play.

I always knew you had the capabilities of conquering school once again. It can be daunting at times, but it allows you not only to learn more, but also to tap into that underlying potential you have in you -- potential you may not have realized you had. I'm super proud of you with how far you've gotten to this day.

What's wrong with your comma usage? Do you happen to do a lot of run on sentences that should've had a comma in them to split up your thoughts so that it doesn't make it sound like you're trying to say everything on one breath? You really shouldn't make something like that a habit because it could potentially cause you to choke on a sentence one day and that could be really really bad particularly if you end up suffocating. ... :)

I wanna pick your brains on the social anxiety issues -- AlexIM sometime soon?
