She Keeps Me Warm

This Is Your Song

Take a line from a song that you love or connect with. Turn that line into the title of your post.

She Keeps Me Warm by Mary Lambert is a great song.  It’s my kind of lesbian anthem, sweet and cheery.  The song is all about comfort and love.  I fell in love with the first time I heard it.

If I had written (wrote?) this post back when I first heard this song, the title of this post would have been “I can’t change, even if I tried, even if I wanted to.”

Last winter, Mercy was keeping the apartment so hot that I had to where shorts and a tank top whenever I was home.  One day this song came on and all I could think of was Mercy…She keeps me warm!

Naked or Fully Clothed?

Are you comfortable in front of people, or does the idea of public speaking make you want to hide in the bathroom? Why?

Sunday Night:

9:00 PM: I should go to bed soon.  I have the conference to speak at.  I have my PowerPoint and a rough outline of what I’m going to speak about.  Just like when I used to teach, I never fully prepare.  I’m best when I wing it a little.

10:00 PM: Maybe I should’ve made more notes?  What was I thinking?

If I Could Turn Back Time

Daily Prompt: If I Could Turn Back Time

If you could return to the past to relive a part of your life, either to experience the wonderful bits again, or to do something over, which part of you life would you return to? Why?

I try not to dwell on past mistakes or regrets.  There is one decision in my life that I wish I could’ve had a do-over for.  I regret buying into the “renting is a waste of money, you need to buy a house”.  The main problem with this regret is that I firmly believe that everything up to now has led me to the place where I stand now.

So I vow, to give up that regret, as it gets me no where and I am in a much happier/healthier place in spite of that mistake.

So let’s relive a wonderful bit…

She Drives Me Crazy

Daily Prompt: She Drives Me Crazy

It makes me crazy when people wear their shoes in my house. What habit/act drives you crazy? How do you prevent it from happening?

“Why?” — one of my biggest pet peeves

I don’t mind questions.  I don’t even mind someone asking why something is the way it is.

What I hate is when someone uses “Why?” like a toddler.

This happens in class every term.  There is always one student who continues to ask why no matter how many explanations that I give.  A student like this can derail a class for the whole term.  It is a challenge.  A declaration of war.  The start to a rebellion.
