When I first started thinking about writing a blog, I was hesitant because I thought that – in the event that this blog totally sucks – that would kinda be really embarrassing. But after some more thought, I decided to let it all out there anyways, crap and all. However, I decided to protect myself a bit by just going ahead and starting right off the bat with 3 things that have horribly embarrassed me in my past. This is just so you know in advance, that this blog won’t be the most embarrassing thing I’ve ever done.
- In 4th grade, a booger shot out of my nose onto a paper I was going over with my teacher, Mr. DeFreeze. It was doubly bad because I was convinced he’d be my husband one day – but after he politely wiped the booger away, I knew there’d never be anything between us.
- Once at the doctor’s office, I panicked and couldn’t figure out how to put the night-gown thing on me, so I panicked even more thinking I’d be all naked when my doctor came in. So I tied it around me like a halter-top almost (using the sleeves as ties around my neck). I then proceeded to sit there for at least 20 minutes anyway waiting for him to come in, never quite pulling the trigger on fixing it. When he finally did come in – even being as nice as he is – I know he judged me.
- On the first day of one of my new classes, we were asked to write our name on a piece of paper and fold it into a name plate so everyone could learn each other’s names. I found this super challenging because the teacher didn’t demonstrate how to do it, so while everyone was easily folding their paper into thirds – I folded mine into at least 12 folds. Needless to say, it didn’t stand on its own, so I had to stick my pencil through one end of the paper and then put the other end of the pencil into my spiral notebook so it looked like a flag almost. Unfortunately, no one could actually read my name since I folded the paper too much. I should also mention I was in college at the time.
Ok! Glad that’s out of the way. Let the blog begin!
