First Steps…. OUCH!

Recently I’ve been trying to better myself, and so far it has not been going well. While I am taking in less sugar each day (it doesn’t count if it is in cereal right?) I’ve also been walking more and working out more often. Tonight was going to be the first night in which I…

The Wonders of a Cup of Tea

Tea. It’s calming, invigorating, and healing. Tea is usually the perfect beverage for any occasion from a piping hot cup of breakfast tea in the United Kingdom every morning, an occasional evening blend for a night curling up with a good book, and even a tall, refreshing glass of sweet iced tea in the afternoons…

Summer Fun

  I’ve been back from Scotland for a month now, and I must say I miss it an incredible amount. The Kansas summer heat has been overwhelming lately, but the plus is that it’s almost the end of the summer program that I work at! With the beginning of August closing in, we will soon…

Hello Jetlag!

I made it! I did not have a panic attack on the plane, I almost finished knitting one dishcloth, and I successfully  completed 5 sudoku puzzles without looking at the solutions in the back of the book! The lady sitting across the aisle was having some issues with hers, but I will admit that I…

Travel Time!

Today I leave on a 10 hour flight. Hooray! Adventures, new places, planes (yikes!). I absolutely hate flying. There are really very few things that I dislike more. In order to keep myself calm and collected, I am taking my knitting needles, which are allowed by the airlines in both the US and the UK,…

MOANA!!!!!!

Hello All!! While I have been keeping up with my knitting and working on Gilmore Girls, I’ve also been trying to catch up with everything else that I missed. I missed quite a bit with student teaching and that very short period after graduation, where the loan money that one has been living off of…

Challenge Gilmore: Day One

Twenty-four hours and the first two episodes of season one later, and I have made some progress. I had recently almost finished a sweater vest that I was making for my father, before misreading the pattern and deciding to tear out the entire project (for reference, I was maybe an hour away from finishing a…

Gilmore Crazy

With the revival of Gilmore Girls (one of the best shows to ever grace this earth), brings lots of incredible thoughts with it. Now I realize that Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life has been available on Netflix since November of 2016. Here is the slight problem with that…. I have horrible, terrible, awful…

20 minutes for meals… What????

Finally, after a long summer of all work (and very little play) school has started! I loved school as a child, and even now I love school as an adult and student teacher. I must say however that the best part of this week was watching all of the students leave today (Friday) and having…

Seven Months Later…

Obviously I did not do what I had originally intended! “Write in your blog once a week… How hard can it be?” Well apparently for me it is very difficult!! So here’s my new attempt, write once a month in amidst the crazy schedule and timing. It can’t be too hard to do with student…

New Beginnings

It’s a new year, and it is blatantly obvious everywhere I go, with gym memberships being announced over the radio constantly, with the broadcasters stating “This year don’t ditch the resolution!”. I realize that the idea of a resolution is decent, but at the same time, why don’t we work on ourselves more by trying…
