High Five: 50/50 + survey

HIGH FIVE for getting called back for a second interview with the principal. This means I have a 50/50 shot?! The interview is on Wednesday at 10 A.M. Remind me!

HIGH FIVE for a self-prescribed workout.

Jill Coleman's "How to Lean Out Your Legs" was meant for me! I took her tips and headed the gym yesterday to do a LiveFit-esque workout.
  • Sprints - 1 min on, 30 sec off (5 rounds)
  • Leg extension - 70# x 15 (3 sets)
  • Wide stance barbell squat - 55# x 10 (3 sets)
  • Squat press - 250# x 10 (4 sets)
  • Seated calf raise - 210# x 10 (3 sets)
  • Leg curl - 50# x 10 (2 sets)
  • Leg press - 210# x 10 (3 sets)
  • Deadlift - 75# x 10 (3 sets)
  • Stair climber - 5 minutes
HIGH FIVE for Thirsty Thursday! After a dull day at work, I met up with my friend Sara for drinks in Long Beach. First stop, Rock Bottom Brewery. I ordered the beer flight.

The White Ale was my favorite. The stout tasted like straight up coffee.
Nope, we weren't done. We went to Congregation Ale House as well where we "shared" a Black Market Brewing hefeweizen.

I headed home, texted or messaged a bunch of friends for no reason, and was lulled to bed by the sounds of Pandora.

HIGH FIVE for waking up early the next day. I headed to yoga and boy was it tough today! We worked into side crow and I can get my top leg straight!

Like this but I probably don't look as put together

Today's my day off so I'm taking a midday luxury nap & I'm hoping going to study after I finish this fun survey. :)

A. Attached or Single?


B. Best friend(s)?

Yancey, forever and ever even if we're near and don't talk sometimes.

C. Cake or Pie?

Best cake I've ever tasted from MILK in Los Angeles.

So cake it is. Unless it's pumpkin pie, but I mostly like the filling. Unless the crust is unconventional pie crust.

D. Day of choice?

Thursday and Saturdays. Thursdays because it's almost the end of the week and sometimes Fridays are a disappointment. Saturdays are always a good time.

E. Essential item?

Q-Tips, the paper kind. Plastic bends so easily! I can't recall how many times I've regretted forgetting them.

F. Favorite color?

Retro pistachio (KitchenAid mixer color), the exact orange in this picture, and ice blue

G. Gummy bears or worms? 

Bears, but right now, these are my favorite:

H. Hometown?

Huntington Beach, CA, but I lived on the interior.

I. Favorite indulgence?


 and getting a mani-pedi.

J. January of July?

My birthday is in July and even though it's hot and sometimes dull (yes, I said it), I meet new friends and go hiking.

K. Kids?

None at this time. Right now, I don't foresee myself having kids because I could never give enough [time] to my kids and to my students at the same time.

L. Life isn't complete without...

My students. That's the first thing I could think of... and my phone!

M. Marriage date?

Maybe one day. I'm more partial to this than having kids at least.

N. Number of brothers/sisters?


O. Oranges or Apples?

Apples! I'm pretty sad it's not apple picking season right now!
What's your favorite? Fujis, Honey Crips, and Pink Ladies are my favorite

P. Phobias

Heights combined with water.

Q. Quotes


R. Reasons to smile

#1: Possibility of getting a teaching job!

 Hanging out with old friends and new friends

S. Season of choice

T. Tag 5 people

U. Unknown fact about me

I can't swim.

V. Vegetable

Sweet potatoes

Grilled corn

W. Worst habit

Picking at my nails.

X. X-ray or Ultrasound?

Neither sound good. I did get an ultrasound once to see if there was anything wrong with my belly.

Y. Your favorite cereal?

No joke.

Z. Zodiac sign 

Okay, fine. This is true too.

Take this survey or answer any part in the comments!


  1. I only like pie filling, too. Although thank you for pointing out that I will, in fact, be excited if the crust is unconventional. It's sort of like has to be worth it.

    Also, I am going through a slight Fiber One addiction myself. The little twigs, though. Why are they so delicious???

    [Congrats on the job potential! Fingers crossed...]

    1. I'm the same way with bread too!

  2. Haha I'm the opposite when it comes to pies! I like the crust with some of the pie juices (um, yum?) on it and am definitely an apple pie kinda girl. Congrats on your call back for your job! That's so exciting :)

    1. I love apple pie if it's just fresh out of the oven, and it's made with real apples rather than a can of filling.
