Some things you may not know about me

The other day at school some teachers and I were talking about our phobias. I had everyone rolling when I started telling them some of the things that make me uncomfortable because they are all really stupid. 

1) I can't STAND cheese..unless it's melted. The thought of eating a piece of cheese makes me so uncomfortable. You would have to pay me a really high amount of money to eat cheese. The smell, the texture, the taste.. it all just freaks me out.

2) Calling strangers on the phone. I just can't do it. My mom has pretty much handled 99% of wedding planning because I refuse to call anyone. I had to call a student's mom this year and I seriously was sweating I was so nervous. I don't know why.. it's just something I've always struggled with. Again, really stupid.. but it makes me so uncomfortable!!

3) Kind of along the same lines as the cheese thing.. but the thought of sweat tea really makes me want to vom. I know I'm from the South and I'm supposed to love sweet tea but I really just can't stand it. I think it's the fact that it's not carbonated.. but I don't know. I've honestly only had like two sips of it my entire life but that was enough to put me over the edge. 

4) Another thing that makes me super uncomfortable is shopping at Wal-Mart. I know I need to get over this but that place just disgusts me. 

5) People that I barely know gossiping about someone else. I know I am guilty of gossiping from time to time, but I at least make sure it's someone that I know and can trust! To me it's more of venting than gossiping. But when I barely know you and you come to me talking about someone else I just freak. This happens EVERY DAY at the elementary school. I don't know why but teachers just come to me with all of their problems. Being in the middle of gossip and drama that I am not apart of makes me so uncomfortable!


  1. Jamie this is SO funny!!! I have a post ready for Tuesday about my phobias!!!! So so funny!!

  2. HAHAHA the cheese thing cracked me up! I love cheese and for someone to hate it..cracks me up.

  3. HAHA! Walmart... I'm so with you.

  4. Totally agree with you about Walmart! Sadly there is no Target anywhere close to the college that I went to this year, so my choice was shopping at a sketchy Walmart or the sketchier Walmart... fun fun.

  5. WHAT? Girl, how can you not love sweet tea? WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM?? Haha,
    but in all seriousness, I understand. I think. No, I don't understand. But I still love you and think you're an amazing person. And I'm with you on the phone calling thing. I hate it when I have to call someone that I don't know personally. My mama still schedules my hair appointments for me!

  6. I feel you on that last one. Student teaching has shown me that sometimes adults have more gossip than the kids. And that's saying something since I'm in a high school! I always make up an excuse to dash away!

  7. YES! Someone else who can't talk to strangers on the phone! Finally! I have to have my boyfriend or my mum call places for me and they tell me off all the time but I just can't do it!

  8. Girl I am the same way about sweet tea and I AM FROM THE SOUTH...what is wrong with us?? haha. Glad I am not the only one!!
