Didyoustealmytoaster?

Didyoustealmytoaster? I spend my days with little people; exploring the world, expanding their minds, until they grow to be bigger-little people.

I like puns. They make me laugh.
I like writing. It helps me think.
I like The Holy Trinity. They make me feel.

Making Friends

Someone told me they would like a story based on something said in Grace’s podcast. And so I tried. 

“Do you remember what we talked about?”

Grace crouches down, tugging on the front of the small jacket in front of her and settling for adjusting it, just one last time.

“Uh huh.”

“Okay good, off you go. Have fun at the park with your mother.” Grace smiles, standing up and taking her hand to guide her outside to Hannah, waiting on the porch. “And remember, it’s a surprise for your mother!”

Today my principal asked me to to sort through photos of my students from when they were younger, for the end of the year. Everything was going fine, but it got a little tricky when I got to the identical triplets’ photos, so I asked them to help. And even though they tried their best, they didn’t know either. All four of us were guessing. It was just dozens of conversations like this: 

Me: “Ok guys, who is in this photo?”

T1: “I think that’s me.”

T2: “It kind of looks like me though.”

T3: “It looks like all of us, we’re identical.”

T2: “Right…yeah…sorry.”

Me: “But, like, who is in the photo?”

T1: “Umm….”

"I did not realize you had an accent. That is very cool"

When you think about it though, don’t we all have accents?

But I’m glad it sounds like a happy surprise :) I wouldn’t know how to fix it if you were disappointed.

"Hey, wanted to let you know I'm getting paid £7 an hour to read your fanfics. Five hours in, best job I've ever had. Even got a cooked breakfast."

That’s pretty cool. I’m glad I could help a little. If only we could all get paid to read/write fanfiction. But gosh, I’m surprised you weren’t bored with my words after five hours!

"What the heck your accent is really hot haha!! What accent do you have?😍"

Gosh, I’m really not sure. There’s an ignore button, although I’ve never used it. I think it stops the people that you ignore from seeing what you post? Perhaps someone who sees this will be able to be more specific.

Sorry that things aren’t so good at the moment. I hope you figure your way through it. Be strong! If you ever need to talk, or just vent, feel free to come back :)

Hi anon, first; I hope things will get better for you sooner than you think. Second; yes, you can block people and then they won’t be able to acess your blog anymore. If you ignore them (I believe if you go on your ‘blogs i follow’ page you’ll see the button ‘ignore’) then they won’t come on your dash and you won’t see them anymore.

Thank you!

Grace and I went to the Streamy Awards years ago to do red carpet coverage for mdc.

I remember us feeling like the unpopular kids at the prom as we watched iJustine and Smosh stroll by. We were sat a few rows behind them and a handful of other popular youtubers.

We watched people go up and accept their awards… I turned to Grace at one point and said “you’ll be up there very soon.”

"I've just seen that you are doing a masters in theology. How interesting! What made you want to study that? If you don't mind me asking :)"

Asked by Anonymous

I sure am, I’m about halfway through it, and it’s great. I chose theology because words have always been something I’ve needed to work at, I’m definitely a numbers/Math person. I love how it’s like an adventure. I get to ask questions about texts and then be a detective and put all of the information together to see if there’s an answer. It’s just so fascinating! (to me at least). 

"You're great."

No you are. You’re the one sending lovely messages to people to make them smile. I think you’re the great one.

"I have no idea what I'm talking about. I just watch to many shows on the cooking channel. Mostly "chopped". Also no it was late so I had to be in bed so I just went to sleep. -K/\t"

Asked by Anonymous

But that’s how great things start! You should definitely keep watching the cooking channel.

I would always choose sleep over food, so I have to say I would agree with your choice!

But like, wow. I just want you to stop and pat yourself on the back and just take a minute to be proud of yourself. Because you did that. All by yourself! You did it. We’re two thirds of the way through the year and you’re still doing it. You’re amazing. I’m proud of you, and I hope that you are proud of yourself. I hope that you know just how great you are. 

"But teachers don't have exams they make the exams don't they? (Good luck though!)"

Asked by Anonymous

This is true. Usually teachers set exams. But some teachers (that’s me!) have to sit exams as well. I’m halfway through a Masters of Theology and so this weekend I had two more exams.

I can only imagine how weird it must be to teach a room full of teachers though.
