I'll take an adventure.  The first day was great - what a relief.  Back for more tomorrow.  I even gave them homework.  Yes, I am that teacher.  Ready for more?  I hope so.

My first day back in a high school is today and I am pretty excited.  I can't wait to see how this year pans out and how it feels to get involved in clubs and sports again.  I'm nervous, but in a good way for sure.  I am hoping for a great first day meeting students who are hopefully as excited as me.  How do you remember feeling on the first day of school?

Today is my final Friday of summer vacation.  Monday I have to be up early and at work for my prep week before school starts.  I've already gotten a head up on my classroom and have started moving in, but it all starts for real on Monday.  I'm pretty excited, but sad to see the lazy days of summer end.  How are you spending your weekend?

Neon vs. Orange

I'm not quite sure how I feel about neon, but I do have a friend who is willing to push fashionable trends with simple neon accessories.  I think that is as far as a grown woman should go,or at least one who has already seen this trend come and go.  I'm all for day-glo in workout gear, but am unsure if I could do more than a strip about the waist or perhaps an earring, or even more daringly a shoe.  How would you wear this shade?

I wish it were that easy.  I would love to go outside and enjoy it - but that is usually only about 7 o'clock in the morning, or while I'm pool-side.  This is my last free week before I'm back to the good old grindstone and working full time again.  I really want to play outside, but that will have to wait for fall.  I guess I have good things to look forward to.  Where have you been playing?

I currently have the first version of slang flashcards laminated and ready to put up in my classroom.  I find it perfect that this new set of big words has concrete literary references.  With pregnant friends popping up all over someone is bound to be gifted something awesome like this.  Can you tell I have school on the brain?

Versus Series

I've been considering a weekly series and came up with the perfect word play.  Versus = vs = my initials.  Could the stars be more aligned? This week, obviously I'm getting ready to head back into the classroom.  Next week is my final week of summer and then it's back to the grind stone.  I have a purple pencil skirt in my wardrobe and I thought that I could dress it up or down.  My normal outfit would be the cardigan all the way.  It is my standard wardrobe element for sure.  The same goes for flats.  I'm on my feet all day, so that usually leaves any type of a heel out of the question.  I think I could pull of a petite wedge, not a heel.  I'm still hunting for the perfect blazer.  How would you wear this outfit?  What would you choose?

My goal for the upcoming year is to feel a little more put-together, and a little more stylish.  It's easy to show up to work in a middle school and look like an adult because you're taller than most of the students around you.  Standing out as an adult in a high school is a little more difficult.  I want to make a good impression and although it might have been flattering to be confused for a high schooler a few years ago, now I'll take college undergrad.  This is my shopping list and so far I've scored a few awesome pencil skirts, and anyone who knows me has seen the cardigans galore.  Is there anything I'm missing?

Tomorrow the Lithuanian basketball team plays USA.  I'm having a game-watching party at my house, but the live game is too early to host a group of friends.  We'll be watching the re-play in the afternoon, so I'll be avoiding the internet just as to not spoil the results for myself.  I even have some tie-dye gear that my husband will be sporting because we're rooting for the under dog in this house.  Lithuania already has a gold medal from the London games thanks to Rūta Meilutytė winning the 100m breaststroke. Who are you cheering for these games?

I'm not a wuss!  It wasn't my fault that the lawn mower wouldn't start.  No amount of pulling the mower chord would have worked because the carburetor was clogged and needed to be cleaned.  I feared that the moment my husband came home and pulled the lawn mower chord that the whole thing would start and leave me looking like a wimpy fool.  Once the part was cleaned the lawn mower started up and yesterday I did the whole yard myself.  Yes, I'm proud, but can you blame me?
