Seven Things and a Photo

I am finished with my last Calculus test of the semester before the final.

It was HARD!! I love Math, but it's not easy. I am always very relieved after I finish a test!

I am giving you photo of me that is about three years old because, as happens with most of you, I am not usually the person in front of the camera. It's a photo that I like, though. I took it MYSELF when my DH was in Iraq. Heh. :)

Here are my 7 Things:

1.) I wanted to be a farmer when I grew up. I'm 29 now, and I still want to have a farm. The happiest times of my life that I can remember were on the farm that we ran when I was a kid. We had sheep, cows, turkeys, chickens, goats, rabbits, pigs, horses (briefly), cats, and we even had a dog for a week.

2.) We are currently owned by two rescue Akitas--Sumo and Pearl. I would rather adopt an older dog from a rescue organization than buy a puppy from a breeder. If I seem a little snippy about that, I apologize. That's just how I am--I would rather give a home to a dog who really NEEDS it than pay money for a small, whiney poop machine. You will never see a puppy grace my home.

3.) I make the best oatmeal cookies ever. I'm serious. I got the recipe from a friend of ours in Iowa. She created it herself. If you want the recipe, I'll send it to you, but you have to promise never to tell anyone what my super-secret special ingredient is. :)

4.) I used to think that Christmas was my favorite holiday, but I have realized over the years that Halloween is my favorite holiday because I love horror movies, haunted houses, dressing up as something else, and especially eating candy!

5.) I am going to school to be a Math teacher. I wish I had started school for this earlier, because the more I research Mathematics, the more I want to learn, and I want to continue taking Math classes. I want to go to MIT and do something cool, like be an Astrophysicist, Propulsion Engineer, or something that involved complex mathematics because I LOVE IT. REALLY. I LOVE MATH. Maybe I will just take summer courses every year for the rest of my life?

6.) I am a stepdaughter as well as a stepmother. I love my stepkids and my stepdad. I have no biological kids, and I don't care much for my biological father.

7.) I have two tattoos. This one is on the small of my back. Both are dragons.

I don't have a photo of the other tattoo, between my shoulderblades. Sometimes I wish I hadn't gotten two tattoos that I will never be able to see. I want to get another tattoo someday of Rosie the Riveter.

Hope you all enjoyed reading these.

I have a carrot cake recipe that I am going to post soon that is TO DIE FOR. We call it "Akita Carrot Cake" because it is SO fantastic, just like our Keeters!!

OK Katiefu, You are absolutely crazy! I mean that as the most sincere compliment. It is great to find someone willing to teach that is truely passionate about their subject matter. I am one of the lucky people who had a math teacher that would take the time and explain the math from a "different view" so that I got it. I am not a math whiz, but I don't dislike it. It is a very useful tool. Just not word problems....

Now about the cookie and cake recipes, you must pass them along! I am reachable at thank you. :) I love baking and my mommy really likes carrot cake, so this will be great.

I am lucky enough to have come into a relationship with a dog who was pottie trained. Thank GOD! My sister's dog has let me know that if Bandit ever passes, I will not be getting a puppy. I agree whole heartedly about the poop machine...LOL

Good for you Katiefu! Keep up the good work. And the pic is great too!
