That Friday Feeling…

Especially when Spring Break is so close! You know that feeling, when you don’t want to do anything, and contemplate taking some time off…

#DSFWeeklyRewind: Can I get a Do-Over?

Good afternoon Rewinders! I seem to have a pattern of good weeks followed by bad weeks. If that’s really true, this coming week should be phenomenal!

The short version: I am so awkward that I managed to show my crazy (as one of my co-workers would say) to the gentleman that took me out last weekend, and now I’m being ghosted.

Or at least I’m 97% certain that’s what has happened. I’ve been kind of fixating on how to fix it, which of course always makes it worse, right?

#DSFWeeklyRewind: Good Days

Good afternoon Rewinders! This week has been a slew of good days and a few new beginnings. I began reading a new book. I began overcoming my fear of failure in my writing. I even began a new piece as I’ve stalled on my other WIP’s.

And while normally I would feel a little bit frustrated that I hadn’t finished what I’m working on, I’m more thankful (even gratitudinous!) that I still have ideas flowing to make up the slack!

So, let the rewind commence!

#DSFWeeklyRewind: Recognition, finally!

Good afternoon Rewinders! This week has been hectic but in a good way. I’m definitely thankful for my work friends and my kiddos this week. They have (even if they don’t realize it) given me ample validation that teaching is,┬áin fact, my calling and that I am, in fact, relatively good at it.

If we work our way backwards, today (Sunday) has been all about the writing side of things. The Twitter Chat was about distractions, and thus it was also the theme for my weekly #ThinkBIGSundaywithMartha post.

I Light My Own Candle

The wheel has turned again, and we find ourselves at the next holy day of the old ways… well, a particular pantheon of old ways, anyway.

For those of you who have been around for a while, you already know I don’t fit in a particular religious group. There was a time when people would call me a dabbler, intending it as an insult, though I rarely took it as one. I am a bit of a dabbler. I am strong in my faith, and I accept that my faith doesn’t exactly fit well within the parameters of any other particular faith.

Though this day and age is particularly suited for exactly that sort of thing.

#DSFWeeklyRewind: Playing Catch Up

Good evening Rewinders! This week everything is a little wonky. Again, I didn’t get the #WriterWednesday post up on time… or at all! Again, the weekly rewind is a little late, though I promise to post before the weekend is technically over. But, hopefully, after today is done I’ll be back on track. It’s been a busy weekend!

For that matter, it’s been a relatively busy week!!

As such, the soundtrack for this week’s rewind is full of trance and dubstep.
