Me – The Person

My name is Samantha Douglas and I am a teacher. I love my dogs, I have two poodle crosses named Beau and Luke (I adopted them from the Humane Society, and am not a huge Dukes of Hazzard fan… someone else was). I am very close with my family… I even bought the house across the street from my parents! My brother lives in Denver, so I have grown to be a huge Colorado Rockies fan. I love baseball in general, even the Blue Jays on a bad day. I enjoy listening to live music, and travelling across the continent to watch concerts. I enjoy all sports and have many different favourite teams – San Jose Sharks, Oakland Raiders, Los Angeles Lakers, Tampa Bay Rays, Kentucky Wildcats Basketball. I enjoy travelling to Las Vegas and spending my time by the pool, or walking from sun up to sun down at Disneyland. I am a bookaholic, and try to read 100 books each year on Goodreads. I’ll admit that I binge watch too much TV on Netflix, and am a part of many different fandoms. Speaking of which, I am also a Hufflepuff.

I have decided to update my blog for my Cree 100 class that I am taking as a part of my second degree. I am very excited to begin my journey learning a new language. I am a Cree woman that has only learned a few words – the language in my family has been lost. I am excited to begin sharing this journey with any readers that I have!

Though I have grown over the years, it is funny how much is still the same. The last time I edited this page was eight years ago… Below was my description of myself then, I couldn’t bare to delete it.

I have described myself as a teacher and as an artist, so maybe I should describe just me. I am Samantha Douglas, born September 12, 1990. I have lived in a small town, and I have lived in Moose Jaw. My family is very important to me, as are my friends. I’m quite weird, but have a sense of humour that is easy to associate with. I am usually long winded so I am trying to keep this to the point.

I like math, baseball, music, art, dance, hockey, education, movies and much more.

I speak my mind, I talk a lot, and i laugh for at least thirty minutes a day. I try to stay positive, but its hard sometimes. I have an eclectic set of interests and find ways to connect with people through them. I am a very social person, but only have a few people close to me.

I am me.

I don’t know how else to explain myself. I feel passionately about many topics and I enjoy reflecting on these to justify my thoughts. If I am going to have an opinion on something, I am going to be able to back up my thoughts. I try to keep in mind treating people with respect, especially myself.

I like realizing the areas I have grown in. Reflecting on the progress I have made, and the opinions I have changed and reformed. It reminds me that life is continously changing.

I love to sing. I love to dance. I love to talk to people.

I find words to be very powerful, and quotations to be very important.
“Life is a series of images that repeat themselves” – Andy Warhol

That is basically me.
I like me.
I hope that you can get a sense of who I am through my blog.

Thanks for listening,
Samantha Douglas.

    It sounds like we have a lot in common…except for the math part! I think we would be friends. πŸ™‚ I enjoy your blog.

    One question, where is Moose Jaw?

    All the best!

    Becoming ‘freshly pressed’ with the 100% post made me curious about you. So young and already so wise. Now math is not my cup of tea, but ‘laughing for at least thirty minutes a day’ surely is. Isn’t laughter the key to hapiness? Have a nice day in the Land of the Living Skies, Samantha, what ever that means πŸ™‚

    Hi, Samantha, I liked your blog. I found it from googling the quote about fishes climbing trees. And your art is really nice. You seem to have all the atributes to make a good teacher. Could I make one suggestion? Maybe in your intro after “Moose Jaw” you could add it’s in Saskatchewan which is in central Canada. Some of us are stumbling on your site from as far away as Australia, so of course we go “Moose Jaw???” Best wishes for the future. – Richard.
