Summer, Summer, Summer Time

Time to sit back and unwind........

This is probably the first time in my teaching career that I've been out of school before Memorial Day. I love it!!! It was definitely a year of many more downs than ups so I'm happy to see it come to an end.

Because it is summer for me, I now have time to get my act together and blog more. And trust me, I'll definitely be asking lots of questions regarding common core. Before we get to that though, let's play instead. Thanks to Farley and her currently :)

Listening: I love Dateline. Actually, I love any sort of investigation/detective shows. My dream job would be a detective.

Loving: I am LOVING LOVING LOVING being on summer break. I like having time to myself. A time where I don't have to worry about doing school work every waking hour. Even though it's break, I've been up at 8:00 (except the weekend) to go for a run before it gets too hot outside.

Thinking: I cleaned my house for 8 hours today. wasn't even my entire house! Just four rooms. I'm spring cleaning right now. I thought it was a perfect time because I've lived here a year and also because I actually have the time and wanted it to be clean and nice for the start of the summer. I have one more room to finish tomorrow and then just a couple of odds and ends and then I'll be finished with that task.

Wanting: I've put my application in at a few school districts. I think I am needing a change. I'm afraid if I stay in my current position, I'm not going to be able to get out of my rut. However, waiting for a phone call is hard. I'm sure people look at the number of years plus my masters and just bypass me. Most schools do not have the extra money for that. I'm just keeping my fingers crossed!

Needing: MONEY!!!! Owning my own home is expensive! There's always upgrades or things I want to do to it. I also just like spending money-what girl doesn't!?! ;) he he. I should probably start playing the lottery in hopes of winning.

3 Vaca Essentials: My phone for sure. I like to take pictures. Well, all right. I'm also addicted to social media.  I would also need my nook so I can read a ton of books. That is my FAVORITE thing to do all summer. Lastly, I would need my bikinis. A girls gotta get a nice tan :)

~May the odds be ever in your favor~

  1. Found you through Farley's Currently. I hope you get the chance for a job change! Sometimes it is best to just start fresh! I am in school and so many people are saying to continue right to get my masters but it definitely limits the job search as that means paying more. Enjoy your break and don't forget to take the time to just relax!
