Pic of Handwritten Revisions on 12 pages

These are the 12 pages, 1.5 spaced of my rhetoric term paper draft, all hand revised! Now to type those revisions back into a text doc & to write the remaining 6 pages.

But today on the blog I’m not talking about #ohgradschool. My brain needs a break, for the duration of a blog post, from #ohgradschool. Instead, I’m doing an Alphabet Survey — posted by Katy Upperman on her blog today. My NA Sister Juliana also did this survey, so that’s neat and you should read it.

Alphabet Survey, because it’s fun!

A is for age: Twenty-three, for another month (ish).

B is for breakfast today: Vanilla latte and an English muffin w/ crunchy peanut butter & nutella.

C is for currently craving: Nothing. I just ate a popcorn snack.

D is for dinner tonight: A piece of pizza leftover from lunch, and the sandwich I made for lunch but didn’t eat because I went for pizza instead.

E is for favorite type of exercise: Soccer and ballet are tied, but I’m loads better at soccer.

F is for an irrational fear: Butterflies.

G is for gross food: Sea urchin. (and yes, I’ve tried it and know I don’t like it.)

H is for hometown: Albuquerque, NM is close enough. (I don’t post my actual hometown or where I live now online.)

I is for somethingone important: Cheesy, but Boyfriend. He is definitely the better half, especially during #ohgradschool. (Yes, I changed that prompt.)

J is for current favorite jam: I’m playing all albums by The Hush Sound on repeat — soon I’ll be sick of them until this same time next year. I always break them out in springtime.

K is for kids: I don’t have any, if that’s what this prompt means.

L is for current location: My English office.

M is for the most recent way you spent money: On pizza for lunch.

N is for something you need: No final projects or papers due ever again ever!

O is for occupation: I’m a grad student, I’m a teaching assistant, I work in IT… yes, I think those are all the jobs I hold at this moment.

P is for pet peeve: There is something about this question that always makes me draw a blank. I definitely have pet peeves, but I usually only notice them when they are in the process of peeving me. It’s been a pretty peeve-free Tuesday.

Q is for a quote: “Persons attempting to find a motive in this narrative will be prosecuted; persons attempting to find a moral in it will be banished; persons attempting to find a plot in it will be shot.” — this is at the front of Huck Finn, a book I don’t really like interestingly enough.

R is for random fact about you: I’m bilingual — I grew up with English and Spanish. But my spoken Spanish is now abysmal because I never use it, though I can still read it without much hindrance. I can also write in Spanish just fine still.

S is for favorite healthy snack: Can I confess that I don’t really eat healthy snacks? I eat really healthy meals, so I pretty much reserve snacks for junk food.

T is for favorite treat: Summer vacation. 2 more weeks, 2 more weeks.

U is for something that makes you unique: I am not unique. I am not a pretty little snowflake. — that’s a paraphrase of something else, but I have no idea what. But I don’t have a clue — I don’t think I’m all that unique. I’m me, and I like me, and me likes to do lots of things other people like to do, things other people are way better at. I discovered about 5 years ago now that when I stopped trying to hard to be unique and special, and caring if other people thought I was unique and special, I became a much happier and less stressed person.

V is for favorite vegetable: Zuchinni — but that can go very wrong, very quickly. It’s a finicky vegetable.  (Also, is that how Zuchinni is spelled? I don’t think so at all.)

W is for today’s workout: Sadly, none. I have to return to this term paper soon.

X is for X-rays you’ve had: Let’s see, I had braces & other metal crap in my mouth for YEARS, so all those teeth X-rays; I’ve had my hip and legs X-rayed twice or thrice. I think that’s it, though.

Y is for yesterday’s highlight: Going to sleep before 2 am. Not a highlight I get to repeat today. Bummer.

Z is for your time zone: Central.
