This seems like a good filler post. Plus, it's been so damn long since I have blogged regularly that you probably forgot who I am. So, here's a reminder. :)

Age: 29. The last year of my twenties ... amazing! Sometimes I forget how old I am and I think I am a recent high school grad. Or a recent college grad. I frequently catch myself saying things to my students like, "I wasn't in high school THAT long ago." But considering the fact that I graduated 11 years ago, I probably can't be saying stuff like that anymore.

Bed size: Queen.

Chore you hate: Hmmm, where to begin? I will start with cleaning the bathroom. Unloading the dishwasher. Mopping the floor. Laundry. FOLDING LAUNDRY. All of them.

Dogs: Yes, I have one. His name is Oscar. I believe most of you are familiar with him.

Essential start to your day: Cell phone alarm. And standing in the shower for a couple of minutes in hot water. Ahhhh.

Favorite color: Blue. And pink. And purple.

Gold or silver: Normally, I would say silver, but lately I've been way into gold. So how about ... goldver.

Height: 5’6

Instruments you play: Violin since I was 3, piano since I was 4.

Job title: Graduation Coach

Kids: Yes please!

Live: I have no idea how to answer this question. So ... yes. I am living.

Mom’s name: Judy

Nicknames: None, really. Although my dad sometimes shortens my name from Shaina to "Shaine." And I have been called the Shainster. And Shaina-Baina.

Overnight hospital stays: None.

Pet peeve: Oh man, there are SO many. I hate when people use the wrong letters in a name to make it sound cute. Like ... Krazy Kat's Korner. AGH I HATE THAT. I also hate when people make up names for their babies by ruining perfectly good normal names. Like the other day, I heard of someone naming their kid Jaxsyn. It just hurts my eyes. Also, I am kind of militant about spelling and I have an issue when people spell "ridiculous" with an e: "rediculous." It happens more than you'd think.

Quote from a movie: They've done studies, you know. 60% of the time it works, every time.

Right or left handed: Right.

Siblings: None of my own, but I have four sister-in-laws.

Time you wake up: 5:35am on weekdays, earlier if I work out before work. On the weekends ... more like 8-9ish.

Underwear: Yes. I wear them.

Vegetables you dislike: I love pretty much every veggie except zucchini. I find that icky.

What makes you run late: Fatigue. I am so tired in the mornings that sometimes I get out of the shower and curl up on the couch under a blanket while I stare blankly into space. And staring blankly into space can really take up a lot of time.

X-Rays you’ve had: Hmmmmm ... quite a few I guess, although I have never actually broken anything.

Yummy food you make: A lot! I am very good at cookies. And breakfast foods. And I am very talented with creating really tasty meals out of whatever is laying around.

Zoo- favorite animal: Giraffes!!!

I love "goldver" - it perfectly describes how I'm feeling about jewelry these days as well.

HAHAHA what makes you late is what makes my husband late. However, the man is a fan of "staring blankly at the tiles in the shower under nice hot water for thirty minutes". My sissy and I call his showers "power half hours" HAHAHAHA!
