Hi ladies, I've been lurking for awhile and have finally decided to start posting around a bit, but since everyone seems pretty close knit and to know each other pretty well I figured I should introduce myself first!
Screen Name: YourDogDontKnowSit
Significant Other's Age: 26
What You Do: I teach second grade and I go to school full-time
What SO Does: He's a PhD candidate
State of Relationship: Living in sin
How Long You've Been Together: 1.5 years
How You Met: OkCupid
Wedding Date (if you're engaged/married): We're not engaged
Real Babies: None
Fur Babies: Two boxers, Bella and Jake (not named after Twilight) who I brought into the relationship, but I'm pretty sure their loyalties are questionable at this point.
Loves: My dogs, working with kids, horses/horseback riding, swimming and being around the water in general, reading and audio books, running, TV shows but not particularly movies, sushi, being disgustingly lazy on weekends, county music, etc.
Hates: Working out/going to the gym other than running, watching movies, the way that it is literally impossible for every piece of laundry to be clean at the same time
Pet Peeves: People that are incredibly loud/draw attention to themselves particularly when they're with me, slow drivers, a long list of things my students do such as making noise when they raise their hand ("ah ah ahh" or "me meme")
Hobbies/Activities: Horseback riding, swimming, running, reading
Favorite Thing About Your SO: We align nearly identically morally, he's just a genuinely good person
Least Favorite Thing About Your SO: He's terrible with time - if he says he'll be an hour, he'll be two. We're always running late and I'm super anxious about being on time (among other things)
Describe Your Personality: People's first impression of me is that I'm very quiet. I don't like to talk just for the heck of it, but when I'm comfortable in a situation/around people I'm much more conversational. I'm a weird mix of awkward/shy/anxious and judgmental (not something I'm necessarily proud of) all the time. I'm constantly
worrying or stressing about something, but I chalk that up to the fact that I work 40 hours a week and go to school full time as well. I get along better with animals and kids than I do most grown adults because most grown adults can't appreciate sarcasm like I do.
Snark Level (1 [low snark] - 10 [high snark]): Internally an 11, but I generally try to reign it in and operate on a friendly 7 or 8
I've Been On TK Since: Spring 2013
How You Came to Be On TK: I was MOH in my BFF's wedding and helping her plan
How I like my potatoes: Every possible way (just not sweet)
Favorite book/author: The Harry Potter series, but in general I'm a Chick Lit fan
Tell Us Something Interesting About Yourself: I chose and hated 3 different majors before finally realizing I wanted to teach for the rest of my life, I was already teaching preschool which helped me make the final decision
