I Spy... Me!

So this new job is the reason I've been M.I.A. for the past week or so!

I've been working 9 hours every day, putting stuffed animals in bags and taping them up or putting stickers on them.

Oh so exciting, huh?

I feel like every time I start a blog I hit 12 blog posts and then it's a dud.

But this is something I really want to keep up with! There's soooooo many ideas out here and I want to contribute to them!

This post is going to be super short, but I just want to make you all aware (if you aren't already are) of these awesome baskets at Target in the dollar spot. They're called burger baskets and come in packs of 3. GREAT for use in the classroom. Not really sure what for, but I would've bought more if I had my own classroom!

Mine are an aqua color... Not sure what other options there are. Maybe orange? I'm not sure!

Five for Friday on a Saturday

I know I've been M.I.A. most of the week.

I've been busy relaxing before I start my warehouse job next week.

I wish I didn't have to work there, but a job's a job.

I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching to share what I've been up to this week, besides sitting around watching Ugly Betty on Netflix.



The week started off with finals. On Tuesday, my roommate and I had two finals in our two most difficult classes. I have no idea how late I stayed up, but I was running on Lipton Peach Iced Tea - my favorite! At one point, it got so bad I started reading children's books, and she caught it on camera.

People seem to catch my crazy life on camera too often. Like the time I got stuck in an elevator - more on that in another post!

After finals, it was time to move on out! Here's my empty room. So sad and depressing! Quite a change from how it looked just days earlier...

I LOVE this picture. These are seriously my favorite trees on campus and I hate that I had to leave right as they started to blossom. I'm so glad I got this on camera! Beautiful!


I am literally obsessed with making these binder covers. I've also made dividers that look similar, but I don't have a picture to post. I plan on making lots of these to make available to all you lovelies!

 MY CLOSET IS CLEAN!

I have been waiting for this FOREVER!

I cleaned it out last night, to my mother's dismay. It just had SO many things that I didn't ever use or want to keep.

So I cleaned.

Well, hopefully next week is a bit more exciting. I really want to start posting more teacher-y things, but until then... you all get random tid-bits about my life.

Help Wanted!

Sooo.... I may or not be a bit technology inept.

Still.

Yes, yes, I know I've taken a technology class here at college.

But they don't teach you anything about the blogging world!

Like how to make your blog design pretty and cool without hiring someone to do it for you.

Or finding clip art for free or relatively cheap.

Or making products for TpT - or even cute ones just for yourself.

Finding fonts, however, is actually my one skill. I just have to find them again for THIS computer - I broke my first laptop (oops)!

So if anyone has any advice to share or knows somewhere with great tutorials, I would greatly appreciate it!

Help this lil' girl out, why don't ya?

I will love you forever!

Currently... May! Say What?!

Soooo.... According to my computer screen it's May.

It's May. Already.

It feels like just yesterday I came back to campus and found out we didn't have classes for two days because of how freezing cold it was.

And now it's May.

Anywayyyssssss. I'm linking up with Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade for her Currently!


 
 
 So. Here it is! I guess I have some explaining to do, huh?

Listening: I am enjoying the silence that rarely occurs on my floor. While I love the people who live on this floor with me, I truly enjoy the piece and quiet that comes with finals week and 24/7 quiet hours. {by the end of writing this blog post, it was fairly loud again - laughter coming through the walls, girls talking in the hall...}

Loving: The two things getting me through studying for my five finals and my English research paper are Lipton's *new* peach iced tea and colored pens. I mean, who doesn't love some color added to their notes!?

Thinking: I literally have a list that just never ends of things I need to do to finish up this semester. It's crazy. And I really just want to curl up with the children's books I got at the bookstore the other day and just pretend I'm 5 again.

Wanting: I really just can't wait to be home. Being home means I can take my chances at getting the job as the interim children's minister at my church meaning I would be planning summer Sunday school and Vacation Bible School. Exciting! It also means a break from school and working my booty off - AND being thismuchcloser to my preschool field experience next semester!

Needing: It's finals week. What else is there to say? Annnddd my overhead light just went out so that must mean I should go to sleep sooner than later.

Surprise!
