I love Jesus. I use the term “religious” loosely. I don’t ascribe to a certain denomination. I ascribe to Christ.

Things I love:

making people laugh. mexican food. performing skits. playing the drums. playing the guitar. volleyball. teaching. my students. harry potter. people who use parentheses and ellipses to convey sarcasm and comedic pauses.

Things I dislike:

making people cry. seaweed. watching skits performed by people who can’t perform skits. hearing the organ played when it’s on the ugly setting. the dobro. twilight. not being able to sleep on long airplane flights.


Why are you still reading about me? Creeper…
