I have done next to nothing to prepare myself for the upcoming week, and I feel fucking great. You see, Friday I got tired of my own bullshit (again). I have been giving, giving, giving almost every ounce of myself for the past six months that I haven't had much leftover at the end of … Continue reading Function vs. Fun

Now that I’m teaching high school, I have a whole new appreciation for Thanksgiving Break. It is necessary. I’ve spent almost this entire week in pjs and sweatpants, and am pretty sure I’m a better person for it.
