O.M.G... I can't believe that it's already JuNe!!!! That means sooo much in this house!!!! So I am linking up with Farley over at her blog for her monthly Currently!!! I have been MIA from my blog with the end of school and all that has been happening in my life at school!!! I am hoping this summer to be a better blogger, even though I won't have school to write about exactly... I'm sure I can find something to write about!!! I am also wanting to create a few products this summer!!!! Wish me luck!!

Listening: My son is sitting on the floor driving his trains around the blanket saying "I think I can..." over and over again! He is really intro Thomas the Train. I am very excited that I get to spend a lot more time with him now that its summer time!!!

Loving: This school year is OVER!!!!! To say the least it has been the longest, hardest year from HELL for me!!! Not only was my class very difficult, but my admin didn't like me from the first day I stepped foot on their campus! Not sure how I made her not like me before she even knew me but somehow I did it!!! So of course she made my year very difficult and almost made me want to not be a teacher anymore!!! Seriously! I was thinking what else could I do with a teaching degree because this is NOT for me!!! But then I realized that I was a good teacher and my kids loved me and I was doing what I loved and to hell with her!!! 

Thinking: I HATE the unknown!!! Since I resigned from my job I have been called for two interviews, I felt very confident for the first one and was planning on getting that job... well a week went by and NO news... NOTHING!!!! So I came home and I had a message from a different school in the same district for an interview!!! I called back on Friday and the Principal wasn't on campus... she was the one who called me the day before wondering if I was interested in an interview!!! 

Wanting: This one sort of goes with the above statement!! I want to know where I will be working next school year!!! I am also wanting to be finished with my Masters degree!!! My school is starting to make me angry!! They keep changing around advisors and classes!!! So instead of being finished THIS December I am looking more like NEXT AUGUST!!! Oh yeah I also have to finish packing up everything in my room on Monday!!! Geez I feel like I just did this... Oh wait I did!!!!

Needing: My classes start on the 10th and I need to go up to school and buy my books... Not sure exactly which books I am needed because they keep changing the stuff online! I also need to email one of the schools that works with children with Autism during the summer to "get a kid" to study and work with this summer for one of my projects!!! Super excited about that!!!

3 Vacay essentials: Electronics: phone, iPad, computer... I think that all counts as ONE item... RIGHT?!?!?!?! Well in my house they DO!! Haha, I need my phone for games, movies and whatnot.. my son needs my iPad for his games and movies, I also have my kindle books on my iPad so it is also my "books", and of course I need my computer for when all other electronics are dead. Then I need sunscreen otherwise I BURN!!!! My son also got my fair skin, we both tan easily however if we don't wear sunscreen we burn burn burn!!!! OUCH!!!! And last but not least... My Thirty-One bags!!! Since I started to sell these I am OBSESSED!!!!  I have always had a few Thirty-One bags but now I keep looking at the magazine thinking about how I can use EVERYTHING!!!! I am so excited about what this company has to offer for their Independent Consultants!!! 


  1. Hi Michaela - I thought I was a follower already but I am now. :o) I love thirty one bags...they are the best. Enjoy your summer!

  2. Found you from Currently. I always hate the unknown too. When I applied for jobs, I would check my phone and email a hundred times a day waiting and waiting and waiting for responses. Good luck with your interviews - they can be so nerve wracking! But I bet you'll do great =)

  3. Good luck with all the changes. Changing schools is hard, but working with Admin that don't like you is harder.

    Cheers to something better!

  4. Good luck with the job hunt! I hope I never have to do that again... so stressful and defeating when you live in an area where teaching jobs are limited! Good luck!

  6. First off your blog is adorable! :) Second good luck with all the work changes. My roommate had the SAME experience this year at her school. Principal didn't like her right off the bat, made her year hard, and forced her to resign at the end of the year. And she was a great teacher. So not fair. I really hope you get a much better school where you WILL be appreciated! I too am a 2nd grade teacher from Texas so excited to follow you! :)
