What Happened: This week was a “get back in the swing of things” week. After a lovely week-long Thanksgiving break, I had to figure out what my plans were for this month. And let me tell you, there are a lot! I got a lot of planning done for this upcoming week which I can’t wait to share with you! I also created a school library Instagram (follow us @tarranthslibrary) and started using social media […]

What Happened: I had the entire week of Thanksgiving off. And I took the entire week off. I had a couple of chill days where I read a lot. I had a day of running errands and cleaning the apartment. I spent a few days at my parents house for Thanksgiving. I played games. I watched football. I enjoyed the fall weather. It was a lovely break from real life. But tomorrow it is back […]

What Happened: I HAVE MADE IT TO THANKSGIVING BREAK! Y’all, I really don’t think I have needed a break from school as much as I do this week. This week was accreditation for the school, so things were just a little extra hectic. But we survived. And to end out the week, I created a life-size Candyland board on International Game Day. The kids came in all day and played! It was so great to […]

What Happened: I’ll be honest: I am tired. This time of the year is always exhausting. The lack of sunlight doesn’t really help. I am just in “trying not to get sick” mode right now (but I do feel a sinus infection coming on). I did do a little bit of after Halloween retail therapy this week though. That made me happy.  And my school’s football team made the playoffs! They have been working really hard […]

What Happened: October has been a roller coaster of a month for me. But the last week or so has been much better. I do think that the darkness is really affecting my mood (and my sleep). Hopefully I can get my emotions and mental stability back on track. I have been using weekend visits to Starbucks as my recharge time. I put a book in my purse and my pup in the car and […]

What Happened: With Hurricane/Tropical Storm Irma coming so far inland, we actually cancelled school for two days to avoid potential threats. Thankfully my area was spared most of the storm–we just got the occasional 30mph wind gust. But it is better to be safe than sorry, especially in an area that is never prepared for hurricane weather (and also tends to flood during a regular thunderstorm). But I must admit–having the extra couple of days […]

What Happened: So it’s been a while since I have written one of these posts. But I want to use them to keep myself thinking about my reading life more consistently. Last weekend was Decatur Book Festival. It is one of my favorite weekends of the year! This year I bought more books than I should have and got to see many of my favorite authors again. It was a great time! School has been […]

What Happened: Work, home, sleep. Work, home, sleep. Work, home, sleep. But I apparently read a lot. And started playing Pokemon again. So there’s that. Also, I have decided that every weekend needs to be a 3-day weekend. I just feel much better about everything when I have that extra day off. What I Posted: My review of American Street by Ibi Zoboi. Take a look at the movies I have watched over the last […]
