+/- week 2 of teaching

Standard

I really need to set up some kind of blogging schedule so I can better communicate with myself (if that doesn’t make me sound crazy, I don’t know what does).  I had the intent to blog all week but right now this will have to do.  I make my creative writing students write three pages in their journal per week so maybe, I should do the same.  I am trying to get back into writing but I feel disillusioned by all of the critical literary papers I had to write in college.  Then came the lesson plans.

+ EK and I decided on a tentative wedding color palette.  We’re thinking a rich brown, cream, and turquoise for the main colors and since it’s a fall wedding, I’d like to do a orange for some minor accents.  I really would like a brown or turquoise sash to go around my wedding dress. But I have to pick the dress first.

+ My learning specialist in my classroom is just wonderful to work with.  I can be very easy going regarding students who require accommodations.  Having been an at risk aide, I get where you need to let go and where you need to be a little more steadfast. Anyhow, I just like her and she gave me a wonderful recommendation for a wedding photog that will only charge about $100 for our engagement pics.

+I assembled the majority of my fall wardrobe this weekend and last.  I feel good about this. 

+My idea of a Friday night equals a nap, late grocery shopping, and renting The Walking Dead Season 2 from Family Video with EK. 

+EK and I are going to see The Gaslight Anthem tomorrow!  It was a birthday present and it’s finally heeeeere.  I haven’t been to a concert in ages!

+ I will now have a little more freedom with my weekends since I put in my intent to resign at Younkers.

– I just quit a job that I have worked 10 years at.  I have formed a lot of relationships.  I have been taken care of by some of those ladies more than some of my family members have taken care of me.  Most of them are gone.  Some I will invite to my wedding, but, mostly it’s just bitter sweet.  I don’t deal well with change either.  I’m struggling on this.  I am working my last two shifts at the end of the month and I imagine I’m going to be pretty bummed.  Hopefully, I’ll have come to terms with this a little more by then.

-I have been asked twice if I am pregnant this week.  One in part because I was wearing a tunic and another because a kid was generally interested as he put it, I dress like I am. I’m happy to have an open dialogue but a girl can only get asked if she’s preggo so much before it starts to affect her self esteem.  I have a belly.  I will always have a belly.  It is not a muffin top, but it is a belly.  I am built like a brick shit house but I am a beautiful one.

-I hurt my knee at the gym last week.  Like really hurt it. It was swollen for awhile and because I was favoring it,  my hips and back hurt too.  It’s finally starting to feel better and I’m going to attempt the gym on Tuesday.

-I am over the test the new teacher game.  So over it. Fortunately I’m good at confrontation.

-Two students added to my roster are emancipated and as they call themselves “street rats.” I am keeping a very watchful eye on them to make sure they can have a chance at receiving their due education.

-My nails are brittle.

-I haven’t had any time to read Dance with Dragons. 😦

-I haven’t had any time to read, period.

-I have 3 huge loads of laundry to fold in front of me, but I’m going to take a nap.

About bohemican

"About Me" sections make me feel awkward. I am a 26 year old who often forgets how much I do in a day. I love fashion, makeup, all things girly, teaching, reading, and gaming (when I have time). I am an introverted, awkward, clumsy, English teacher. I'd say the "way to my heart is to..." line but, see, someone's already found that path. Oh and I love cats. English teacher stereotype? Yeah, I fit it.

  1. “I really need to set up some kind of blogging schedule so I can better communicate with myself” .. I’m pretty sure I’ve said that a few times myself so you aren’t too crazy.

    I am in love with your color palette!
