Back on Track (again… maybe)

I managed to miss the weekend coffee share. I feel a little bad about that, but I posted on the Friday before, and now it’s the Monday after and I’m posting again, so you get more, even though I forgot…

With only 2 weeks and some change until teachers have to go back, I’m trying to get back into some sort of routine. Thus far, this summer was well routined during summer school, but then I took about a week to recuperate, which was destroyed with all the guy drama, and then over a week visiting family and friends in my hometown, and I just finished a week or so of binge watching shows and eating horrible food.

And nowhere in there did I write…

So, now we’re going to try really hard to get back on track.

Too many things going on!

It always amazes me how Tinder goes from one extreme to the next. For about a week, I was matching left and right. Granted, only 2 guys made the cut for me to meet, and only 1 got my number, but it’s always a nice boost to my ego when, however brief it may be, the Tinderfellas decide I’m a hot commodity for a bit.

But now, it’s dead silent once again. Oh well.

I had originally decided I was going to post today about the possibility of being too old for a Summer fling, and share my slightly meandering thoughts on the matter. I may come back to it, but the gist of it is this: I would probably settle for a fling, but it is oh so NOT what I want right now, or ever again, to be honest.

While, yes, Tinder has a reputation for being only for sex, I have met plenty of people (or at least seen plenty of profiles) that say they aren’t looking for a just for fun, no strings attached sort of situation, but rather that they want something with some substance to it. Some of them are flat out lying because they are good at hawking the fantasy. Continue reading

Changes coming…

In the next couple of weeks or so, you should start to notice some slight changes to things here at #JustAddTea. As I said this weekend, I’m realizing that I’m not 100% happy with my life, and I want to fix that.

This blog is one of the things that makes me very happy, and with the summer coming up, I can start to do some serious work with it to make it really want I think it can be.

Obviously, I’m not one of those people who can focus on just one thing. Though, in true Aspie fashion, I get fixated, there are a handful of interests that I sort of cycle through.

As in, while it would be nice for me to say this is just a relationship blog, or just a blog about creative writing, that’s never going to be a thing that I can do. There are several things that are very important to me, and in order to make this blog do what need it to do, I have to focus on all of them. Continue reading

Day 14: What’s My Day Really Like?

So as a teacher, my day is not exactly normal…And as I’m not in my own place yet, it’s really not normal!

My normal day (or normal for right now) begins somewhere between 6 am and 7 am. I wait until my friend and her kids are close to being on their way out the door for daycare/school/work before I even get out of bed because it’s a wee bit cold, and I really just want to hop in the shower so I’m not freezing or in their way. So I wait my turn. I probably don’t have to, but I never really feel fully rested anyway, so every little bit of shut eye I can get helps.  Continue reading
