Questions Answered!

I had fun receiving questions from everyone!! I'm always curious about all of your fascinating lives and don't mind sharing about mine one bit! I have to tell you I'm not that interesting though, haha ..typical college student! Now on to the questions..

1. What is your ideal grade you want to teach?
Right now my internship is in a second grade classroom and I absolutely love it! I would be very happy if I could land a job in a second grade class in the future. I would also be happy in kindergarten or first though!
2. What is your favorite online and in person store to shop at?

I love shopping online for affordable cute dresses at Modcloth and LuLu's. I also love JCrew and take advantage of the JCrew factory store- you can only find this site on the weekends but they have great deals! (comparable to outlet prices). In person, I like to shop at Nordstrom (because they have EVERYTHING), Francesca's, local boutiques, Ivy & Leo and Ann Taylor Loft! It was too hard to pick just one- I love to shop!
3. Is the boy you went to Semi and Christmas cocktail with a potential BF? Or are you dating at all?

No, afraid not! This girl is one hundred percent single. I met Dylan recently and am so glad I have had the chance to get to know him and attend these date functions with him. Other than that we are just friends. I'm still waiting patiently on the right guy to come along.. we'll see!

4. Do you have any big plans for Christmas break?
I plan on heading home tonight or tomorrow morning and couldn't be more excited! My only plan is to relax, spend time with family and old friends, read and enjoy the holiday! I do plan on completing all of my graduate school applications over break. That is big for me!! I will be applying to ECU, NC State and Appalachian.
5. What do you want to do after you graduate?
Now that is the question of the year! The answer is terrifying and exciting (to me, anyway!), I don't know. I'm running out of time and need to figure that out soon! I plan on getting my masters in Education immediately. My two choices are Option A: Get my masters as a full time student living in Greenville, Raleigh or Boone. Option B: Get my masters online and start teaching at the same time. I think I would really like to live in Raleigh but we will see where life take me!

6. Do you have a job right now?
I babysit M-F for a local family and love it!!

7. What do you like to do in your spare time?
This semester spare time was hard to find. When I find "me time" I love blogging, shopping, reading and catching up on my favorite TV shows. Oddly enough, I also enjoy blasting my favorite music and cleaning!

..and lastly just for fun, check out this video! It will surely bring a smile to your face!!


  1. Love this! I'm hoping to get lots of questions to answer for mine. I have one bit of advice when it comes to doing masters online & teaching... my soon-to-be mother in law has been teaching for awhile now (10+ years) and is doing her masters online and it is super super hard. She said that she probably wouldn't have done it online, but also with work from her own classroom, she is very very stressed. If you could, I would go with option A, especially being a brand new teacher with even more stresses...adding masters classes might be way too much! :)

  2. I love this post! I'm a little partial to Raleigh :-) I can't wait to hear of where you decide!

  3. That is so exciting about applying to grad. school! I hope you get into Appalachian! I absolutely love it here! Also, I thought it was too funny that my list of things I like to do in my spare time is exactly the same!

  4. Raleigh is awesome def an A+ Choice!! I am applying to Meredith and NCSU for masters in elementary ed :)

  5. Loved learning more about you! I say go to ECU for grad school. Great education program and I love Greenville. I had a lot of girlfriends who were Zetas down there and were able to show me around. :)

  6. I'm 15 minutes from Raleigh so I go there all the time to shop and explore-I love it!! Wish I lived there! And I now know what I'm doing tomorrow-getting Pop rocks for my grandma to try over break, haha. Wish I enjoyed cleaning too! Someday...

  7. I love this post! I go to Appalachian and it is such an incredible place to live and a great school to attend! Good luck on the applications!

  16. love the tip for the JCrew Factory store, but I have to ask, why are the clothes so reasonably priced? are they damaged? out of season like an outlet? or are they clothes made for the factory that are lower quality?
