Life Lately

by - August 26, 2023

It's been two weeks since my last post. I would normally say that you could be keeping up with me on social, but my posting there has been just as sporadic. Life hasn't been kicking my butt these days, but social media and blogging haven't exactly been on my priority list since school started back.

For one thing, it's been 100+ degrees every day for the last two weeks, which makes getting dressed a not-much-fun activity, especially since I have to dress professionally. Added to that are the struggles of my school's air conditioning. It just cannot keep up, especially in the halls which may not even have air! So, yes, I've been getting dressed every day, but there's not much thought behind it other than, "what can I wear that I won't melt in?" Then there's my hair. The hotter it gets, the bigger it gets, and not in a good way. All that to say, most days I don't want to take a picture of what I look(ed) like.

Life hasn't really been kicking my butt, but I have been busier than usual. We've started working with this new curriculum, which means I'm once again teaching something for the first time. There's a learning curve and a ton of planning, especially in determining which parts of it all to grade. I'm also making decisions on where to split things up, what parts can be dropped completely, what lessons need to be added in, etc. etc. etc. I'm also trying to make notes for next year on the things that didn't work and what I want to do differently.

My teacher certification program is well underway and taking up a lot of my free time. I'm trying to work ahead as much as possible so that if something comes up, I won't be as likely to fall behind. The assignments are intense and time consuming to say the least. And I still don't know if I passed my content tests yet.

So, you see, my brain space is pretty well occupied at the moment, leaving very little room for creativity outside of my classroom. Once we get through this first unit, I'll be able to breathe a sigh of relief, at least for a little while, and hopefully get back into the swing of everything else. As it stands, I have no blog ideas at the moment. Zilch. Nada. Nothing.

Anyway, I hope you all enjoy your weekend and that this last week of August is a good one.
