This post is inspired by Emily from Chatting at the Sky.
:: According to BuzzFeed quizzes I am the following: Mr. Potato Head, Ann Veal (her?), a Londoner, Albus Dumbledore, Jess (from New Girl), and--my favorite quiz result--a writer.
:: DisneyLand is actually for grown-ups.
:: The right things aren't always super easy or convenient. (I seem to relearn this one often.)
:: Safeway is the only grocery store chain in the Portland area that carries those gross, fake Valentine Pillsbury cookies that I secretly love.
:: A bowl of steel-cut oats is the best breakfast in all the land (next to birthday cake--obviously).
:: My husband doesn't like cake.
:: If I have to pick a team to win the Super Bowl, it has to be the Broncos. The Pacific Northwest can't take away my Rockies roots!
:: Stephen King is a much better writer than I'd ever given him credit for. (I'm currently in the middle of The Stand. To see what else I'm reading, check out my Goodreads profile.)
:: The response I received to this post affirmed its message that gracious dialogue is more effective than any cruel words.
:: Making this place a priority makes hard things in my life so much more manageable. It's so worth it to sacrifice a night of stretchy pants for a couple hours of real learning.
:: January and I may be ready to make peace.
