I’m going to BlogHer15 at the end of the month so I’m really, honestly trying to blog this month. I have a few days off before Summer School begins so let’s see how this goes.
On weekdays, I’ll be responding to the prompts supplied by BlogHer BECAUSE OMG MY BRAIN IS FRIED AND IT’S HARD TO WRITE.
Do people generally understand what you’re trying to say?
This is a loaded question. I guess it depends on what aspect of my life you’re looking at.
My grandfather always said if you want to have intelligent conversation, you need to talk to yourself.
I understand me, most times.
This, however, doesn’t mean I understand what I’m trying to say. I think, sometimes, I get caught up in the moment and get verbal diarrhea. I am an English teacher, however, so I usually am able to articulate what I mean halfway through my ramble.
My students, for the most part, understand me. I break things down and usually end up talking in slang so they “get it.”
My family and loved ones know me so they know my varying levels of insanity. I struggle more with communicating with them because I sometimes (wrongfully) assume they can read my mind.
My dog understands me.
My fiancé’s dog (my step-dog?) is starting to understand me.
I hope you all get me.
