Three Random Things About Me: Let's Get Acquainted Linky

I am linking up with Latoya of Flying into First Grade and sharing three things about myself using my initials.

My initials are CNG

(All of my names rhyme – figure it out if you dare!  And yes, I did realize my married name would add to the pattern, but what can I say, I love the guy!)

C – Coffee and Chocolate!

Oooh!  How I love coffee and chocolate…better yet, chocolate raspberry coffee.  My Kuerig is my bestie!  Starbucks is not.  I know that people swear by Starbucks, but I really dislike their coffee.  The new blond blend is much more enjoyable.  I’m a Dunkin’ girl, Tim Hortons is a close second. My favorite candy bars are ones that include peanut butter – right now, Take 5 takes the prize!

N – New Student - Again

I have gone back to school…again!  I am in my second class as a doctoral student in Teaching and Curriculum.  I am loving every minute of it!  School was always my thing – I’m a reader.  Somehow, even though it is a big time and financial commitment, it’s so enjoyable for me.  It gets me out of school earlier and thinking in a different way about education.  So, hopefully, by 2017 (yes, 2017!) I will finish my degree!

G – Great Books

I LOVE to read.  I will search and search until I find just the right book to work on.  Right now I have a pile so high that I run out of re-newels at the library before I can get them read.  I really commit to reading for my own personal joy as often as I can.  My tastes vary widely, but lately I have been into the City of Bones series and I just checked out The Host.  Both books are coming out in the theatre and I am a book snob.  I love going to see the movies and then saying how they just didn’t do it justice on the screen – pretty disappointed with the movie version of the Hunger Games (they just didn’t capture the main characters for me, and then the downright fabrication of the origin of the mockingjay just frustrated me!)

Okay, this one was just funny…I think I need to frame it!

Thanks for hopping in!  Check out the linky!

  4. Chocolate & Coffee - um, Hazelnut...YUM! I had a 1 cup Mr. Coffee but it died. I switched to a 4 cup and it actually works better for me.
