For those of you that celebrate Easter . . .

What traditions does your family have?
What's for dinner Easter?

My family used to go to Church on Easter, but within the last 3 years we've stopped going. My mom still makes Easter baskets for me and my brother. We spend the day together and have a big dinner. This year's dinner is:
Crab Cakes
Lamb with Tarragon-Mint Butter
Green Veggies
Couscous with Pine Nuts
Strawberry-Lemon Parfait

I'm starting to apply for teaching jobs for next year and one of my professors recommended I contact an instructor I had last semester (who is an elementary-school principal). I'm having trouble wording the email so that I sound interested in working for her but not all "omgplzhiremenow". Does this email sound stupid? Any advice?

Hi [instructor]

I hope your spring semester is going well. I have just completed all my requirements for a Regular 1 license for teaching in the District of Columbia and am beginning to apply to jobs for the next school year. In addition to applying to the large pool in the DCPS website, Dr. O. recommended that I reach out to you and see if you expect to have any grade-level vacancies for next year at [your school]. If so, do you know if it is possible to apply directly to you in addition to the general pool?

Regards
Lindsay

It's my mums birthday tomorrow and i've made cupcake strawberry cheesecakes. I'm going to have to hide them by my bedroom window, which is pretty cold, but I want to decorate them with fresh strawberries and double cream. Is it best to hold off till tomorrow to do this, or will it be ok to leave overnight?

Smile!

Do strangers ever tell you to smile?  What's your gender?

I see people complain about this a lot online but I've never heard someone mention it IRL (or had it happen to me).  Is this a common occurrence where you are?

Sanitation Habits

How many consecutive days do you typically use a towel after getting out of the shower before switching to a new one? (I usually keep the same one for about a week)

How often do you change/wash your bed sheets and comforter? (Don't ask)

I'm a college student interviewing tomorrow for a summer internship. I've been on a few interviews before, but this is my dream organization to work at so I'm extremely nervous. Any tips or "musts" for having a successful interview? Thanks so much!
