So . . . it’s come to my attention that seemingly overnight, I have acquired a lot of new readers. And since part of the reason why I got into the blogging world was because I liked getting to meet like-minded people, I decided that today, I want to meet you.
But before I ask YOU to get all up close and personal with me, I guess I’d better start by introducing myself first.
My name’s Torrie.
My husband is Matt.
We live in Utah.
I teach 7th grade Language Arts.
I sometimes like it.
I sometimes hate it.
I am currently trying to get over a mild Dr. Pepper addiction.
I am doing that by feeding my Tootsie Roll addiction.
I like to read, write, and try to teach myself new things (hence the blog title).
My most current dream is to finally have enough money to buy a nice camera.
My husband is trying to convince me to warm up to the idea of getting a dog.
I don’t want to.
I can play most sports, but none of them very well.
However, I was never the kid that was picked last, either. Just puttin’ that out there.
I actually really like to exercise, when I take the opportunity.
I ran my first marathon last year.
(I’ll be honest–I haven’t run very much since!)
I still love running though.
I wish I were a better artist.
I really wish that I was a dancer (I am teaching social dance twice a week at my school, so that’s pretty much the closest I’ll get to that fantasy).
I recently learned to love to cook, and I’m in the middle of a semi-difficult transition of trying to eat more vegetarian (simply because, I’ll admit it–I hate how expensive meat is).
Um…that’s all I’ve got for now.
So now, I want YOU to do something for me:
Go ahead and leave me a comment. If you need a jumping-off point to help you introduce yourself, go ahead and consider some of the following questions:
Do you have a blog? (If so, leave the link–I promise I’ll check it out. I love finding new blogs!)
So go ahead–let’s grab a virtual cup of hot chocolate together as we have a little chat.
Can’t wait to meet you!
