If you can't read a calendar here's some breaking news--it's February! Just four more of these Currently posts and school will be over! Makes summer seem a little bit closer by counting Currently linkys instead of how many days left of school, huh?? Am I right?!
Listening: I'm still in bed with an awful headache and Chip has decided to play with his squeakiest toy in bed too. Oh wait, he's gotten tired of the squeaky toy and moved on to one that doesn't squeak! Yes! My head thanks you Chip.
Loving: I'm taking two grad school classes this semester and am really enjoying one of them. I like the other one too, but this particular class is all about improving America's education system (and I know all of us teachers have strong opinions about America's education system). The professor is super nice and the texts and videos she's having us read and watch are truly inspiring. The class is making me re-evaluate myself as a teacher and how to do the best by my students, no matter what the state government says is the best for them.
I really want to buy this shirt and actually wear it to school.
Thinking: "I hope Megan doesn't think my idea for a blog design is completely and irrationally impossible or weird." I wanted a design that really showed my personality and I'm the worst at putting my thoughts on paper so I hope she doesn't end up hating me (not to mention I changed my mind from the previous design I had talked to her about). If you're needing a new look for your blog go check her out, she's very talented (and one of the nicest people I've met through the blogging world).
Wanting: I went from living in a house to living in a teeny apartment and I'm starting to loathe it. There's hardly any storage space and about a square foot about counter space in the kitchen. Plus I feel really bad for Chip because he doesn't have a yard to run around in anymore. I'm not sure if I want to buy or rent but I do know I can't handle this cramped space much longer!
I'll take one, please and thank you!
Needing: I always need these, as I'm sure we all do, but especially lately. I'm struggling with balancing school with grad school and the rest of life, like cleaning my aforementioned teeny apartment and getting a good night's sleep. I had planned on going to Vegas this summer but I'll have to use what I had saved for that for Chip's upcoming vet visit (which is totally worth it, don't get me wrong). So yeah, an extra hour or two and a little extra cash would be nice!
Pageant Title: Haha, this is so random! I chose Queen of the Runner Ups because I feel like I'm always the last to know about things, whether it's things in my social circle, at school or what's happening in the world (I never watch the news because it's mostly depressing stuff). I also feel like I work my bum off at school and don't get much recognition for it (another problem I'm sure other teachers have- if not, I need to come work where you work!). Ironically, I actually was a runner up in a real pageant when I was in high school.
This would probably be me! I walk better in cowboy boots than heels.
Thanks for reading! Now go read some other Currently posts!
