1. If you had to be shipwrecked on a deserted island, but all your human needs – such as food and water – were taken care of, what two items would you want to have with you?
my bible and an internet connected computer!  word.

2. If you were a salad, what kind of dressing would you have?
umhm, that greek vinaigrette by kraft (i think)  it's basically a simple vinaigrette but with feta cheese.... 'cause i'm cheesy.

3. If you had to live on a ranch, what kind of animals would you raise/own?
i have no idea!  i don't know anything about ranches or ranch animals.  i guess i have to say horses.  and .... sheep.  because they are so funny.  and i think i could find a lot of devotional material watching them follow each other around.

4. If your life was was portrayed as a movie, who would you choose to play you and your significant other?
i really don't know about me.  maybe gabrielle union.  not sure why ... but my significant other?!  oh gosh.  don't tell the sarge. but probably will smith.  they are both funny but smart, responsible, smooth, and hot :)  i think he'd play sergeant j well, i've seen him do the player mode and the sweet husband role.

5. What was the last thing you put a stamp on (envelope, duh, but what was in the envelope)?
UGH!  the SECOND to last payment on a debt that we owe!  whooooo hooo!!

brittney's blog challenge day 3
favorite teacher 

i had a favorite teacher in elementary (fourth grade) but of course, i don't remember her name now.  she's the one i accidently called MOM in front of the class.  don't front, yall know you had one of those.

middle school was mr. waller, which was funny because he was the hardest and most hated teacher on our campus.  but i loved the way he challenged us; i felt like i was in high school!  he is the teacher who taught me good note taking skills.

my favorite teacher in high school was my spanish teacher.  i had her for pre-AP spanish 3 and AP Spanish 4.. .she was amazing.  her name was elizabeth brooks and she was young (probably 24 or 25), so naturally that made her awesome.  she was a conservative christian lady so she wasn't wild, but she was pretty understanding and related well to all her students.  i attribute my love for spanish to those two years of school.  i also had two outstanding psychology professors, but i'm trying to select ONE from each stage of schooling.  it's already hard. 

so.. i know what i just said... but i have three from college.  but that counts because i had a major and a minor..and general studies, so that's three different stages right?  the first was dr. steve phillips from the communications department.  he was one of those you either love or hate... he has such a relaxed teaching style.  i never felt nervous about speeches in his classes... i think it was because of him.  he talked to us like equals, not students.  just people he shared information with.. it was awesome.   the second was dr. motl, western civ.  he brought history to life.  granted, i love history, but there isn't anything like a good history prof.  nothing at all. 

which brings me to the favorite.

dr. terry carter, the dreamboat.  yes i said it.  i pretty much loved all of my professors in biblical studies, but he takes the cake for sure.  i mean, he had so much knowledge packed inside of his head.  i think it was due to the fact that i LOVE history, and like all good history instructors, he made it interesting.  he was probably one of the hardest professors i had, but i am better for it.  and that's what made him so dreamy.  and i'll be honest, that's why i went to so many of his classes haha.. but seriously...


i have to say, ouachita baptist has an awesome faculty, especially in christian studies.  i was never so challenged and loved by so many people at once.  i would call them ALL favorites: douglas nykolaishen, joey dodson (dr. j), paters (dr. marvin pate), ray franklin, and byron eubanks all hold a special place in my heart. ESPECIALLY scott duvall and danny hays (and their wives) with whom i visited israel in 2008.  

this post has made me want to enroll in school again... to learn more. 

...and it passed.
