Re: Trends of 2017

Working with teenagers all day long, I will excited to see if the revived crop top shirt trend goes away. I always feel like something took a bite out of their shirts, and I can't understand why you'd want to wear something half-missing when it's 17F outside. These girls are beautiful and can wear t...

Re: Week 1 - Discussion: How do you read?

Let me start by saying I need to read more. I've been reading A Wrinkle in Time for forever because I read a chapter or a few pages and put it down. If I am on IRC and doing nothing, please tell me to go read. That said, I CANNOT write in books. Annotating in high school was straight painful, becaus...

Re: Early Bird or Night Owl?

My chronotype is apparently dolphin, so yes, there is proof that I'm most definitely a night owl. Thanks for the quiz idea, Scarlet!

Re: Reschedule Thread

I asked Alex and Scarlet if we could move Tuesday's match back half an hour to 11:30 HOL time so that I can eat dinner beforehand. They both said yes. Is that okay?

Personality Test!

How many of you have taken the Meyers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) personality inventory? The test was developed based on psychologist Carl Jung’s theory on personality and behavior. The test is a series of questions about your perceptions and interactions with the world around you. At the end of th...

Re: Early Bird or Night Owl?

I absolutely am not a morning person. I'm that whiny "leave me alone" person in the morning. I go back to sleep if I wake up, which is terrible for you. On any given day, I am easily able to stay up until midnight or 1 am. I get super tired around 10 pm, but then push through and am not ti...

Re: If you had a time machine, what time would you travel to?

I would travel to 5 years in the future so I can see where I'm at in life. I keep talking about travelling overseas to visit my HOL friends, do I do that? Do my boyfriend and I get married? Do I have kids or did I adopt? Am I still at my current job or did I decide to pursue my alternative thoughts ...

Re: Celebration Memories

I'm having quite the mental block on past Christmas memories right now, but I can say this year has been quite special. I moved in with my boyfriend over the summer, and we were able to have our own tree combining decorations from both of our lives onto this tree. My mom bought us a beautiful star f...

Re: Real Life Jobs

My RL job is being a High School Counselor (they're not called "guidance" counselors anymore") and I absolutely love it! My initial career idea was to be a Forensic Scientist because I find DNA fascinating, but then I discovered that working in a lab wasn't for me. I graduated with my...

Re: Holiday Sounds

I agree with Vanessa that I have a love/hate relationship with holiday music. A lot of this is due to the fact that I've been a musician for almost my entire life. I've played Christmas music in a symphonic band setting for almost every Christmas since I was 10. I hear Sleigh Ride and either sing th...

Re: Nobel Prizes

I think I'd have to make a Nobel Prize for Perseverance. I think like that primarily because through my work I am always amazed that some of my best students have the hardest life stories, and it's always amazing to see some of my struggling students pull through whatever they're going through to ac...
