Veracity Blogathon Day 25: eating out

When you're not up for cooking or eating at home what restaurants do you generally go to? How often do you go and which ones are your favorites? Places we really like are: Applebees, Olivegarden, Subway, Firehouse Subs, and 4 local places: one's a country style cooking, one is a piza/sub/pita/etc place, one japanese and one chinese. lol I didn't want to give exact names for security reasons! I have really gotten out of eating fast food with the exception of hardees. them and that blasted chicken sandwich! We don't eat at olive garden except special occasions like anniversaries and birthdays. We eat at applebees fairly offten. I also eat at the pizza/sub/pita join at least once every 2 weeks or so. Usually when david gets paid. … [Read more...]

veracity day #24: subjects

What is one of your favorite and least favorite subjects in school? Why? I was always an english/grammar person. I know that half the time around here(i think i have this wrote in my about section lol). That I don't do it half right with the grammar, but I do try for the most part.It's freaking online for godsake. at least i'm not writing in all caps and sticky caps and stuff you know? I always liked reading/writing so the grammar part just came in with all of that ...I always made A's in the classes..and I have speed reading capabilities.. then.. I had teachers that always wanted to read my papers before others in college..lol seriously got my papers back alot of times the same day I turned them in. I honestly find that my writing and reading fast capabilities have been a gift. A book that would take most people days to read , I can have it read in a matter of hours. A paper that most people would take a semester to write, I could write the night before. I'm lucky what … [Read more...]

Veracity Day #21: Childhood Career Goal

When you were younger what did you want to be wgrew you grew up? Looking at ur life now, how close are you to that job and what do yu aspire to do now career wise? I have always wanted to be a teacher!!! When I was in elementary school my teachers would let me have their extra copies of worksheets and stuff to take home and play school with! I had an entire filing cabinet of them at one point! As far as how close I am to being a teacher? really really really close. I had about 2 more semsters to go/student teaching and i would have had my degree. things got to expensive with me living off campus when my mom had to quit her job when she got her foot hurt though. I had intended to get a job make money for my rent, and my dad was gonna pay my tuition, and go back the next fall, but I ended up meeting david and it never happened. I did get a degree in medical office admin ...but it's basically just to say I have a degree because noone is hiring ..and honestly even in the … [Read more...]

Veracity Blogathon Day 20: computers

img via amazon.com

Post a picture of your computer(s). When did you purchase it? What do you like and dislike about it?   My Laptop is an HP Dv4 and I LOVE it. It is white, and everyone knows i'm a sucker for white electronics. I bought it last May and I can't even remember all of it's specs.. I think it's a 4gb with a 320 harddrive though lol. I know it has an odd screen size: 14:1 I think but it's seriously not too small or too big. It has a nice webcam and card reader. There's nothing I don't like about it!           My netbook I just bought a little over a month ago. It is an Hp Mini and it's pink plaid and I LOVE It too! It really helps about getting things done while david is on the reg. laptop. The webcam sucks about video making, and there's alot of feedback on skype if I don't use my headphones.. other than that no complaints with it. Oh except darn you windows 7 starter I can't change the desktop theme! I didn't per se buy this … [Read more...]
