I can't believe the summer is nearing an end already. This summer has been a pretty good one. In a nutshell, between my DD and I, we have: Gone to two movies in the park. Gone to two local baseball games. Gone camping for five days, which allowed us to go to a lake, a… Continue reading Summer Bucket List – Filling it up!
I'm back (finally) with another Ultimate Bundle Challenge check-in! As you may have noticed from my previous post, my focus has been a bit scattered lately and my energy level has been a little unstable. But, I have completed Days 3 and 4 in the Stretched Too Thin online course from Jessica Turner. It is… Continue reading Ultimate Bundle Check-in #3 – Stretched Too Thin Pt. 2
I am joining Five Minute Friday over at Heading Home this week. I am late, yet again. I tried to write this yesterday (on the actual Friday), but just couldn't get it out. But, this Saturday morning, I found my words. For five minutes, at least. This week's prompt is "Truth". And, begin! Truth is… Continue reading Five Minute Friday – Truth
It is unbelievable to me that in one week I will be on Spring Break. And this year, I'm going to work really, really hard THIS week in an attempt to not work at all next week. I have a lot to do. I have a lot to do for work, at my house, and… Continue reading Stray Thoughts Sunday: Planning for a REAL Break
Today in my class, we were discussing euphemisms and doublespeak. One of my students raised his hand and asked if political correctness was a form of euphemism or doublespeak. I quickly started to answer no and then rethought that response and asked him to define what he meant my "political correctness" as I felt… Continue reading Politically Correct or Simple Respect?
You know those days when something becomes so clear to you that it is like when the eye doctor switches those lenses and everything that was previously blurry and dark becomes perfectly clear and strikingly bright? Yeah, that just happened to me in a way that makes both my personal and professional life so much… Continue reading Mind Blown: Mind/Cognitive Loads at Home and Work
Instead of doing a "year in review" for 2016, I decided to do a "look ahead" for the month of January. I thought it might be fun (or scary) to lay things out for my month on the first day of each month and then do a check in at the end of the month… Continue reading January 2017: A Look Ahead
I am bad at goodbyes. I was always horrible at breakups. I tend to let friendships fade out rather than end in some kind of fiery glory of true "Fin!". And this all equates to my final few weeks of the semester being horrible. I used to think it was because I was tired of… Continue reading Bad at Goodbyes – Ending the Semester
Now officially in the final countdown! Sorry, but for most of you that is probably true. I actually love the commercials with that song in them. It was a fave of mine back in the day and I think the commercial is hilarious. But, seriously, I AM in the final countdown. One of the campuses… Continue reading Six Word Saturday – Final Countdown Edition
Joining up at Six Word Saturday over at Show My Face. Summer is Coming. End in Sight. That is basically my mantra these days. I have four weeks left. Three weeks at one campus and four weeks at the other. And then I have some time "off". I put that in quotation marks, because although… Continue reading Six Word Saturday -Summer is Coming
