It’s time for the first Crusader Challenge. Okay, I’ll play.
Secret: Sometimes I surf the Internet while I’m working. Shhh. In my defense, I only do so when I have to, such as while watching a movie for the 5th time. And only if I’m not having behavior issues. I have to do something or else I might lose my mind.
Interesting quirk/annoying habit: Which is which? I’m not sure, so I’ll let you decide.
I use “big words” all the time. (I had no idea what fuliguline meant, but I had heard the word bloviate before.) This annoys the students, but most of the time I don’t realize I’m doing it. Someone has to tell me, and then I don’t understand. “That was a ‘big word’?”
I have to load the dishwasher in a specific way, and I will pull things out and put them back to make sure that it’s loaded “correctly”. The cups have a specific order, the knife blades must be aligned, and the plates have only one spot they can be in.
As for a best character trait… I have no idea. I’m not good at praising myself. It’s so bad that back in the 4th grade when we had a writing assignment called “What is special about me,” I couldn’t do it. I stared at that paper for an hour, and I didn’t write a thing. It was the only assignment that I didn’t do that year. So, sorry, I can’t answer that one.
Favorite thing: I love to make things. I love the feeling of accomplishment when I have a finished object. I make many of my Christmas presents, like this past year I made a soft rabbit-shaped pillow for my baby nephew.
I may have revealed something about me that isn’t strictly true. Can you guess what it is?
