Meet me on Monday...v6

Acting Balanced

1. What movie or movies do you have to watch when they are on TV? (submitted by@rndmcrftyGAgrl)

How about a pair of Tim Robbins Movies - Shawshank vs. Bull Durham (I just can not choose)

2. When you have out of town visitors, what fun places do you take them to in your town? (Or where do you play tourist in your own town?)

So many places in Charleston...downtown and the market, the plantations, the beach, etc..  Charleston was recently named the best tourist destination in the USA for a reason.

I will however, vote for my favorite moment everyday.  The sunrise view crossing the bridge into the city.     

3. What was the first album, CD, Download you ever bought?

My memory is usually the best but this is a no brainer.  My first album (and it was vinyl) was one of the best of all time - Pink Floyd - The Wall.  I still have the entire score memorized.


4. Do you speak more than one language and which ones? If not, what language would you like to know?
I can speak some brutal French.  One of my sabbatical goals is to pass the French proficiency test and gain my Global Scholars designation.

5. What is your dream job?
I have my dream job.  I love being a professor and being part of encouraging the next generation while also creating knowledge with my research and helping my community through my service.  My job is so much more than a way to make a living, it is a passion.  I look forward to going to work because for me, it is a joy (80% of the time at least).


  1. That is awesome that you love your job so much. I love my job too.

  2. Shawshank Redemption - love that one - and it was just on last week.

  3. Do you teach at CofC? We have one daughter still down there-she's ending her junior year this semester. Can't believe the baby is going to be a senior!

  4. I enjoyed all of your answers!

    Shawshank Redemption is a great movie, one of my faves.

    Charleston is a great town! I really enjoyed spending some time there a few years back. Visiting Charleston was on my "bucket list" :) I had such a great time, we went twice :)

    As for teaching, when I worked in education, as a parapro, I felt the same way you do. I loved my job and never minded being there. Then I was paired with a teacher who was ONLY working for a paycheck. What a bummer! I ended up quitting.

  5. Shawshank Redemption is a very good movie, but you're pairing it with the quintessential movie of the baseball religion and the Minor Leagues!

    I've seen the sunrise in South Carolina, but not specifically Charleston. That bridge shot is beautiful!

  6. It's true that not everyone is lucky enough to enjoy their career; I'm happy for you.

    I had to watch West Side Story yesterday!

    Just got a pop up email reminding me that I need to edit some stories...Thanks for linking up, Wayne, and for taking the time to comment on other fragmenters, too :)
