What I Was Doing When I Wasn’t Doing What I Was Supposed To Be Doing

In college, my room was never cleaner than during midterms and finals. I am not a fan of cleaning, but when it was time to buckle down and study (something I’m also not a fan of), I all of sudden couldn’t look past my clothes that weren’t put away or my messy bathroom counter. How could I sit and focus when these messes were practically screaming at me to be picked up?! And so came the term my cousin coined so perfectly:

I am a productive procrastinator.

Just give me a deadline and that other thing that I’ve been waiting forever to do and dreading, will magically get finished. Does anyone else do this? Nope? Just me? Figures.

Like I’ve said before, Liam’s teacher is amazing. I’m so thankful that she sends me updates and daily ongoings that happen in their class. Here is one of their latest conversations she emailed me about:

Teacher:  Liam, didn’t you just wash your hands?  Why are you doing it again?

Liam:  Because Mrs. J busted me picking my nose when I thought no one would see me.  She was standing right behind me!

Teacher:  Yeah, we teachers have eyes on everyone all the time…parents do this as well.

Liam:  I know…tell me about it, my mom and dad catch me all the time!

Teacher:  Well, you could think about not picking your nose and using a tissue..

Liam:  That would make way too much sense…

Teacher:  Yup… (and we both laughed)

Oy. That child of mine. He’s hilarious.

The Radio Game

Here’s a fun game to play in the car. Perfect for road trips or just to make your usual everyday drive more exciting.

Your name is your “call in button”. Put your radio on scan (Note: This works better in more urban cities that have a lot of stations, although where I live every other station is in Spanish, so sometimes that plan backfires). In the three seconds or so that it is playing a song, try to be the first to “call in” and name the singer. After you buzz in, you have about a second and a half before the other players are allowed to buzz in and you lose your turn.

Me: “Rena! Maroon 5!”

And I get a point.

We play it so that if you call a wrong band, then you get a minus point (although we don’t really keep track of points, just the glorious pride of getting it right before your spouse is usually enough of a prize).
