Back when I first started my blog and was avidly reading other style/fashion blogs (almost two years ago, HOLY), there was this strange phenomena that I noticed.
Bloggers would actually apologize to their readers for not "writing" enough. I never wanted to be one of those bloggers. Whether that meant writing without extended leaves, or just being unapologetic, I am unsure of now.
But there is one thing I am sure of now, and that is that I am going to say SORRY and make an excuse for why I have been MIA and awful at blogging. We're talking, "neglect my Instagram, don't ever stress about page views, hadn't taken pictures in weeks" kind of blogger.
The good news is that it is because I am the happiest, and probably the busiest, I have ever been in my life. Teaching has taken the main priority (besides my husband) in my life. I regard that as a wonderful sign! That means I truly love it. I am one of those people that can only dedicate my life to something if I truly adore it.
Which means, kudos to you, husband AND blogging.
I just chose to dive in head first to the teaching thing. The first week I also accepted a position as the Student Body Officers' Assistant Advisor (I get to plan the homecoming dance!!! EEK). I also calendared all of my IEP meetings (not in the special ed world? Fear not, Google can clear up that acronym!), which was a huge step in the right direction. Note: when I say calendared what I actually mean is wrote down tentative dates to start collecting data, send home notice of meetings, and actually have the meetings. I haven't actually set up the meetings.
Along with that, I worked extra hours at the Friday night football game and dance right after. Not sure why I'd go and support my students at the football game and NOT get paid for it, so I volunteered to sell tickets so I could get paid:)
TL;DR: I am sorry for sucking at blogging, but I am NOT sucking at teaching.
In fact, it is the most rewarding thing in my life. Constantly. Not just once a day, or once a week, but every single class period. I am just waiting for the day that I'll hit the wall and hate my job. Pessimistic side of me always plans for the worst. However, I survived my first hectic week, and my first ever career "brain fog". Things are going good. (optimistic side wins).
But I mean, for now, don't worry about me, worry about your brows. (while you're at it, just buy this shirt).
