Tell me three things about yourself you think I don't know. If you have the stamina, tell me 10 things about yourself you think I don't know!
I'm feeling: curiouscurious

1. I miss performing a lot, but I miss wearing pointe shoes not at all.
2. I'm intensely aware of the class privilege I have through my marriage that allows me to keep working as an adjunct, which would otherwise be financially untenable. I love the work, but I have really mixed feelings about the way that I'm allowing the academic system to exploit my knowledge and labor.
3. I am remarkably good at making a realistic sounding frog noise.
4. I'm incredibly hard to gross out. Things many people find disgusting I just see as really fascinating.
5. I had much better mentors as an undergraduate I did as a graduate student.
6. One of the things I like best about my work as a teacher and a tutor is the process of reverse engineering how I came to have the skills I take for granted now. Seriously, how DID I learn to perform close reading on a text? And how can I teach that to other people? I honestly don't remember, so the experimenting is a lot of fun.
7. I keep in touch with almost none of my extended family – most of whom don't make any attempt to keep in touch with me either – but I am still close with and regularly speak to friends from both early childhood and high school.
8. I really wish I could talk Tish into letting me get a pair of pet rats.did you know that rats laugh when you tickle them? I think this is pretty much the coolest thing ever.
9. I really love wrestling and playful roughhousing, particularly with my husband.
10. I have a secret right now that part of me is absolutely bursting to tell and part of me is loving keeping to myself.
