1. What is something you've always wanted to do but are afraid of?
This may come as a surprise, but I've wanted a nose piercing for a long time. I'm not afraid of the pain of the piercing - I've got pierced ears so I know what it feels like - but I'm afraid of the reaction I'd get from some people. I live in a small, very conservative Southern town! I know I wouldn't be allowed to wear it at work and I'm not sure how my in-laws would feel about me having a piercing - even though my Biblical namesake wore a nose ring.
2. Where do you see yourself in five years?
My actual dream house - it's a modular on display in town!
I love the stonework, craftsman style and big windows.
3. What are you looking forward to before the end of 2013?

4. What are your hopes for your blog?
On a Bible study retreat in college.
5. Do you always see yourself living in your current town/city?
Photo by Mr. Q - why would I want to live anywhere else?

On work days, I take a shower immediately to help me wake up, then come downstairs to brew coffee and eat breakfast while checking e-mail/Facebook and watching the local news. Mr. Q and I get dressed and leave for work about the same time every morning because we live very close to both of our jobs. I get a little NPR in on my 5-minute drive. When I get to work, I make sure my copier is turned on just in case, drop my stuff in my classroom and my lunch in the teacher's lounge, sign in and check my mailbox. I usually say good morning to the administrators and secretaries on my way out of the office, chat with my team to make sure we're all ready for the day, then do any last-minute prep before homeroom starts at 8:00. I check my e-mail and the local newspapers (in online form) while my students are arriving. On the weekends, all bets are off because...
