Monday Motivation

by - July 11, 2022

Happy Monday, friends! I don't know about you, but I really don't like short weeks, especially the ones that start on Tuesday. It just throws everything off!

We have a lot to talk about this morning, starting with what's going on with the magazine. I told y'all a few weeks ago that I've accepted a job teaching 7th grade English Language Arts. I have orientation next week, then pre-planning, and the first day of school is August 2nd. Obviously that means changes for me with the magazine, specifically in that I'll be scaling back my duties to a part-time role. I'll still handle all of the editorial content for the magazine, but I'll no longer be over advertising, the website, or social media. I also will not be writing a monthly editorial column, but I will continue to do page layout for some of the local content. In other words, I'm getting to keep the things I distribution.

Speaking of distribution, I spent a good chunk of the weekend on that. I'm finishing up today, then have a few things to do to finalize getting Alexis registered for school. I'm also going to try to get a few things done in my classroom so that I'm not rushed getting everything set up the way I want it. I'll probably give you guys a sneak peek on my Instagram/Facebook stories while I'm there.

As for the rest of this week, I'm working on the next guide/directory for the magazine and have a couple of things to edit/write. I'll also probably start working on the stuff I'm in charge of designing, but it's still fairly early in the month so there's plenty of time to get it all done.

I'm also still putting together an outline for what I hope to do with my students for the entire year. I'm a big planner, but this is on a scope that goes beyond how far in advance I typically plan things. I also am lining up the resources I want to use outside of the novels we've chosen. I am excited about both of those, though!

Well, I think that about sums up life for the moment. I hope everyone has a wonderful week!
