7 Q's

So I've jumped on the Gentri-Lee-7-Questions train and this time it's the "Back to School edition". This edition is quite timely for all those high schoolers (eh-hem, Collette, Cody, and Christina), middle schoolers (eh-hem, Erin), and elementary schoolers (eh-hem, Caleb) who go back to school tomorrow... the poor saps! haha kidding. But really. I can't believe it's school season again! I start my last year of college in 2 weeks! I'm only freakin' a small bit.

Anyway, so here it goes:

#1. It's back to school time! Are YOU going back to school?
Yes, on August 27th. 9am in the education building. AHHHH!!!

#2. Speaking of back to school... You receive 10 pts if you can name this movie:
"Don't you love New York in the fall? It makes me wanna buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address. On the other hand, this not knowing has its charms."
Answer: YOU'VE GOT MAIL! That has got to be one of my ALL TIME favorite movies. Seriously, if you haven't seen it then you must! Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks are incredible in it and oh, it makes me want to visit NYC so freakin' bad! 

#3. Who did you  hang out with in school? Cool kids, jocks, nerds, were you a loner, etc?
In HS I hung with the swim team, basically. Plus a few others that hung with us but I wouldn't say I was in a category. I was pretty friendly with all "cliques". In college I kept a few friends from HS but gained tons of new ones! 

#4. What was your favorite subject in school?
English! I wrote for and was the sports editor for the school paper in HS :) And now my favorite subjects in my elementary education degree are definitely reading and literature. Can't wait to help those kiddos learn to read!

#5. If you had to go back and redo one of the following, which would you choose and why? Preschool, Elementary, Middle School, High School, or College?
I'd choose elementary just cause it was fun and simple but that's why I'm excited to be a teacher. It's like going back to elementary with all the perks of being a student but not actually having to be the student haha I'm da boss!

#6. Home/Packed lunch or School Lunch?
Back in my K-12 years, I would say school lunch cause it was yummy and all my friends did it hehe but now that I'm paying for myself, home lunch. MUCH cheaper that way. Chartwells sucks the life out of my bank account when I get lunch on campus. 

#7. What's more exciting? The first day of school or the last day of school?
I like both! But this year, I'm going to be so freakin' excited when it's my last day of student teaching and I can graduate! Boo ya!

In other news, today is moving day at our house. I'm so looking forward to being in a new place! Dan's home doing all the dirty work (packing and lifting the furniture) as we speak and then we get the keys at 3pm. Woohoo!
