In case you haven't noticed, there are tons of cool new people hanging around here lately.
Now, I know a lot of you are here because of the iPad Mini giveaway, but I want you all to know how super thrilled I am that you chose to click "Follow"! (And if you still haven't entered that giveaway, there is still a little bit of time. Just click here.)
Well, for those of you who are new to my little world, I thought I would take a little time to tell you about myself.
I have a wonderful husband, his name is Richard. His name makes random appearances around here from time to time.
We have no kids, but we do have three
I used to teach high school English. I did that for three years and hated it! I loved the kids and all of my co-workers, but I hated all the standardized testing, state involvement, and dealing with parents. So, a teaching opportunity at a local two year college open up. I applied, and I ended up getting the job. I just finished my first semester, and I can absolutely say this was the best decision I could have made! I am so much happier now! I love this job!
I have three Master's Degrees. I really loved college, and learning, in general. I am a super nerd, and I'm ok with that. I watch Jeopardy every day. I've even tried to get on the show a couple of times.
Let's see...what else? Oh yeah...I LOVE HARRY POTTER! It is still a huge part of my life, as is LOST! My life still has emotional voids left from these! I'm still looking for something to come along and fill those empty holes in my life. Right now, Once Upon a Time seems promising, but it is still too early to decide. (I know, it's a sad life)
I also read a lot, I mean a LOT, of books. So, from time to time, I talk about what I read. It you have any good suggestions, I always open to hear them. So , please...share!
As far as this blog goes, I try to post at least four times a week. Sometimes it ends up being more, sometimes less.
I am excited about each and every comment that I receive, and I try my best to reply to every one.
Since I am super into the Christmas season, I'm sending Christmas cards to anybody that wants one. So, if you would like to receive one, just let me know by clicking here.

I have cleared out a special space in my sidebar just for some of you!
And last, but not least, I am super exited to share my own personal giveaway with you.
Yes, I know a lot of you are here from the group giveaway. But, I wanted to do my own giveaway to show my appreciation for everyone that made the choice to hang around here!
