New Teacher Orientation: What I Learned

It’s been a busy week for me! I finally have some time to go through everything I’ve learned this past week. There are a lot of programs that this district uses that I’m not so familiar with, so now it’s reflection time! I need some grasp of these things before the students come next week. I’ve taken notes throughout the week to help me with this process. If you’ve used any of these programs before, please let me know what you think! Okay, here we go… Continue reading New Teacher Orientation: What I Learned

Tabletop Tuesdays

It’s been a busy past two days with starting school! But I still had time to make it to Tabletop. As mentioned in my first blog post, I go play board games once a week with a local tabletop community. There are tons of games!

Now that I’m back at school, I won’t be able to stay as late as I used to. I’m hoping to get at least two games in per week. This week I played Harbour and Loonacy: Retro. Continue reading Tabletop Tuesdays: Harbour and Loonacy: Retro

Recipe: 7-Layer Salad

This morning I got my oil changed, went grocery shopping, and now it’s time to cook. Feeling so productive today!

This weekend I will be having a “girls weekend” with some of my family, which I’ll write about when I get back. But tonight we are having a homemade dinner of vegetable lasagna, and I am in charge of bringing the salad.

So I’ve decided to make a 7-layer salad! I really enjoy making this. First, it’s pretty to look at, which makes it a great “party” salad. I definitely recommend using a Glass Serving Bowl or clear bowl of some sort to get the desired effect.

New Job, New Blog, Still Me

I've decided to write a new lifestyle blog. Why? I've always enjoyed blogging. I used to love going on Xanga back in my middle school years, before it became out-of-style. (Side note: Xanga shut down for awhile, but I just looked them up again, and I guess there's a 2.0 version. Good to know…) I've also spent many hours on Tumblr, but I've used it more for reblogging pictures than actually posting my own content. I wanted to get back in the habit of writing about my experiences and photographing them.

Not only would it be fun to go back and read about what I've been up to, I also thought maybe there's a chance I could earn some extra money! I've been doing a lot of reading about bloggers who make $40,000 a month. Wow! That's about how much I make in a year! Now granted, I am not going to fool myself into thinking I'll be making that much money, but any extra income would be helpful, right?
