Weekend Coffee Share: Summer School…

This weekend, if we were sharing our lives over a cup of steamy delicious caffeine, mine would be a salted caramel latte. I haven’t had one of those in a very long time, and I’m kind of fiending for one right about now.

But, I will not actually have one today. I have very serious plans not to leave my house.

Weekend Coffee Share: And so it begins

This weekend, if we were talking over coffee, we would be having a late night slumber party, watching Star Trek Enterprise (I’d not seen it until relatively recently), and waiting for my laundry to finish. My roommate is out of town for the evening, and so I’m using the time for some binge watching while I completely relax. I had some pizza, took a bubble bath, and am now enjoying some wine and strawberries.

2016 officially sucks…

So. It’s two days until Christmas. I woke up this morning, excited! Yesterday, they told me that the other guy’s insurance was gonna cover the rental car, my email showed me that Sense 8 Season 2 is finally about to start (and there is a Christmas episode uploaded now!!), and Goodreads Guy graced me with an email and a naughty photo…

Haven’t heard from him in quite a while, and didn’t expect to hear from him ever again, to be honest.

And yet, there he was. In my email, saying he was “just thinking about [me].”

Weekend Coffee Share: I’m Not Worried

This week, if we were chitchatting over warm caffeinated beverages, I’d tell you that I think I’m about to have the best school year of my teaching life!

Yes, it’s true that this school year has begun even more dramatically than last year. The school is requiring us to do double the paperwork of last year. Perhaps even triple! Enough so that it’s been difficult to even grade papers for all the beginning of year (BOY) assignments. Progress report grades are due on Monday, I’m only halfway done with them, and I’m not worried.

Note, I didn’t even say “yet.”

Just checking in…

So you just missed #JustAddTea. It was a good one.

I know I’m doing this a little backwards, but I didn’t have time to post before. I didn’t leave the school until 7:45… Only giving me 15 minutes to race to my diner for #JustAddTea on Twitter tonight.

I guess it’s safe to say I’m not quite back on schedule yet.

I want to thank some of my fellow #Iggles for joining me as we discussed Beauty and a mini side discussion on Disney princesses…. which led to me deciding that next week our #JustAddTea will be ALL about Disney stuff. An all things Disney #Just AddTea.  Continue reading

Hectic, But Solid…Mostly

I just realized it’s been exactly 2 weeks since my last  post. So much for my routine…

Although, I have decided that me not having time to write isn’t exactly a bad thing. I’ve been very focused on work, more focused on work than I have been in years, and I can tell a difference in my lessons, in the atmosphere in my classroom, and already in my relationships with my kiddos.

I feel that invincible sensation of a First Year Teacher.
