I've been thinking a lot about my life as a writer. I think I've even written about this before. Since I've been in my new apartment, I've had room to spread out my things (my notebooks, books, and pens) and make room to actually be creative in my own space. And, I thought that being… Continue reading the life of a writer

I've been absent for a couple of days. Friday was our last day before spring break. We had a half-day and I went down to Milwaukee to watch two of the March Madness games, one of them being the Badgers. I got up early Saturday morning to go to Madison from Milwaukee to watch Championship… Continue reading absent
did i laugh enough?
Did I laugh enough? I find myself wondering this lately. Being a teacher has made me realize there are some odd things that us teachers consider taboo. Some of these include sitting down for a minute, going to the bathroom when we need to, reading aloud to kids (just a good book for fun -… Continue reading did i laugh enough?
march 31, 2021 – worn out
I'll be honest, I am pretty worn out today. This was our first week back to school being full in-person with students. It's also the end of the quarter. My day was full of grading, running around, making sure students were getting their late stuff done, emails upon emails, phone calls, dealing with crabby people,… Continue reading march 31, 2021 – worn out

"The secret of good writing is telling the truth." - Gordon Lish Simple, right? I am a truth-teller. I can't lie. It looks bad on me and I truly just can't pull it off, besides special circumstances, like having to tell my students goodbye like it's a normal day, when secretly I know we are… Continue reading telling the truth
I bought flowers yesterday. I had been wanting to buy flowers for a long time. Every time we go to the grocery store, I walk back and forth staring at them. I talk myself in and out of buying them about five different times before I decide it is not a necessity and I will… Continue reading flowers
a writer’s life
I recently found a subscription box made for writers. If you research "go scribbler" you will find it. I couldn't be more excited for the box to arrive. They also have an Instagram that seems very inspiring and welcoming. One of the items that appears to be in a recent box was a mug that… Continue reading a writer’s life
I’m feeling rather empty today. I am a Head JV girl’s basketball coach and assistant to varsity in the school district I teach in. Last night, we played our third playoff game, the game to go to state, and lost. I am no stranger to this feeling. I have lived it many times before. I… Continue reading empty
A few quotes have been heavy on my mind lately, ever since I saw one like them while surfing Pinterest. Here is the gist: “Indecision is the thief of opportunity.” “The biggest killer of dreams is indecision.” I don't know if I've every fully considered this. I've never really thought about how not doing anything… Continue reading decisions
Anxiety is something that has plagued my life in a negative way the past two-ish years - more intensely, the last six months. However, I have experienced some form of it for most of my life, especially as I look back. I'm definitely more "prone" to it, you might say. This is probably a very… Continue reading anxiety
