10 Confessions.

I love popping the bubble wrap that sometimes comes inside of packaging. It's somehow therapeutic.

Babies secretly scare me because they are so helpless. It almost makes me wish my future children would be born potty trained and fully mobile!

I sometimes give my students secret nicknames to help me remember their real names.

I hate shopping inside stores and malls, but I love shopping online.

Every night when I go to bed, I like to wrap myself with the comforter like a mummy. It's a leftover habit from my childhood days when I was afraid evil spirits would attack me in my sleep.

I had a habit in high school of deliberately falling in love with boys I knew would never reciprocate my feelings.

I tend to rely heavily on first impressions, not budging much on them unless the person does something drastic to change it.

While I'm not 100% sure if I believe in the presence of God, I happen to find comfort in prayer whenever I am upset.

I detest baby showers with a passion, especially the silly games they make you play.

Despite my pretty high friend count on Facebook and Twitter, I don't have that many "real life" friends I can count on, other than the boyf.

haha agree with ALL of these..even the nicknames one, except im not a teacher, but nicknames are applied to everyone in my life .. in a few cases its led to forgetting peoples real names ..whoops. x

Emma Jade said...

Thanks for all the comment-love, guys! And Emma Jade, I would so tell you the secret nicknames, but then I'd have to kill you. :p

confession: i don't like babies either. i tell craig all the time that if it were medically possible (and wouldn't be ridiculously painful) i'd give birth to toddlers and just bypass the entire baby phase. some girls think i'm terrible for not liking babies, but they just stress me out b/c they can't tell you what's wrong or why they're crying. no bueno.

#1: not a secret. i am the bubble wrap popping queen. yah.

#2: i actually am not afraid of babies, although i do agree about the whole helplessness thing. but i'm more scared of when they grow up... i love toddlers, but adolescents? not so much :P

#3: bwahaha! nice.

#4: i'm a mall rat. i love shopping online, but never buy anything... because i'm afraid it won't fit. srs.

#5: i also wrap myself up in my comforter!

#6: i do that now. sad, but true.

#7: same... but i'm trying to change that, because i'm scared of what people would think of me if they only relied on their first impression!

#8: prayer is amazing. just sayin'.

#9: i'm with you 100% there. we went to the sweetest baby shower ever a few weeks ago, because none of those horrible games made an appearance.

#10: most of my "real life" friends live far away from me... it makes me sad!

also, i love this post and i love you :)

Gee, considering that I have two kids, drive a stick shift, and win baby shower games because I know my nursery rhymes and cartoons, you must think I'm the bravest woman in the whole world! :P

I love this. & bubble wrap. & you.

I still wrap myself in a "burrito" when I go to sleep. It makes me still feel safe. & I hate baby showers too. & I don't have a lot of RL friends either. 8)
