Progress Check-Up and Other Ramblings  0

Hey yall!

Well Monday is almost on its death bed. Can I get an Amen?! Today was purely awful. Not in the sense of shopping withdrawal, but other things. So I am sitting here rocking out to my 90s Alternative Rock music, a kitty curled up on my lap, and sipping a coffee. This definitely makes the day better! Read more

Today, I Feel Human Again!  0

Hey yall!

So the title of my post my sound weird, but when I explain it, you will totally understand! I have not blogged in a while due to the new school year starting up. For those of you just following along (thanks for reading!) I am a 2nd grade teacher and school just recently started again!

Ok, so let me explain the title of my post. I have heard so many teacher friends use this term, and I totally get it. For the past 2 and a half weeks, I have lived and breathed school. I’ve literally had no life. I’ve worked (and don’t get me wrong, I love it!), and worked and worked. When I get home all I have wanted to do was lay on the couch and go to sleep. Our job is so stressful and you have to be 100% dedicated. I try to go to sleep at night and all I can think about are things I need to do and what can I do with this topic. The first week is brutal for all teachers. We have so much paperwork to do, we are trying to get into a routine, and we work extremely long hours. And did I mention we can’t even go to the bathroom when we want to? Ha! I’m not complaining. I just am trying to give you an idea of my world the past few weeks! Read more
