Memed Again! - The 5 Things Meme

I got tagged last week by LiteracyTeacher at Mentor Texts & More. Since I'm in procrastination mode, here goes.

Five Things I Was Doing Ten Years Ago
(I barely remember what I was doing last week, so this might be a stretch!)
  1. Entering the world of grown-up responsibilities by buying a house and taking on a mortgage.
  2. Playing second base and batting first on an awesome coed softball team.
  3. Learning HTML and embarking on the world of WebQuest construction with my preservice teachers.
  4. Repairing my own computer (a Mac, of course)
  5. Working with our chemistry department on the use of technology to improve students’ abilities to visualize and understand chemistry concepts.
Five Snacks I Enjoy
  1. Chips, Chips, Chips (Lots of salt, no flavors)
  2. Cashews
  3. Dried apricots
  4. Olives
  5. Cheese and crackers
Five Songs I Know All the Lyrics To
(This could be 50 and there wouldn't be enough room to list them all!)
  1. Somewhere Over the Rainbow
  2. The Coast Guard Hymn
  3. 50 Nifty United States (Yes, I've been able to sing the states in alphabetical order since 5th grade!)
  4. Embraceable You
  5. Goodnight Saigon
Five Things I Would Do If I Were A Millionaire
  1. Fly to see my family as often as I want or am needed.
  2. Send all my nieces and nephews to college without student loans.
  3. Start my own school, a lot like this one, right here at UR. (However, I would be a teacher, not an administrator.)
  4. Travel extensively with William so he can learn about the world through more than just books.
  5. Keep working, because I love what I do.
Five Bad Habits
  1. Drinking milk from the gallon when no one is looking.
  2. Procrastinating (duh!).
  3. Loud music--in the car, the kitchen, my headphones, you name it.
I'll let you know when I come up with 4 and 5!

  1. I love Pente. It seems like such a sweet, simple little game until it makes you want to start shouting at your opponent.
