Assess Me! Linky

What a fun idea for a linky! Assessment is one of those words that should not be spoken in my general direction during the summer time. We get enough of that during the school year, amiright?! But in this case, it's okay.

I've gotten quite a few new followers over the past month, so I thought I'd participate so you can get to know the girl behind the blog!

1. Yep, mostly when I'm anxious. I practice a little self-talk here and there!
2. Not at all.
3. I crack everything. Fingers, toes, ankles, neck. It isn't cute, I know. I can't help it!
4. Eh, I'm good.
5. Heck yes! My last place Phillies are on somewhat of a hot streak.
6. Yep.
7. Moving on...
8. I went to Disney World a handful of times as a kid. Haven't been back in over a decade.
9. Since 6th grade. I'm sort of known for my specks.
10. No, but I'm only one state over and within driving distance!

Head over to The Tattooed Teacher to link up!

Blog Limbo

My blog has been a lot quieter than I'd like lately. I'm in sort of a blog limbo, with a few things on the horizon but nothing quite ready to share!


I'm in the process of a blog redesign by Kristin at Teaching in a Nutshell Designs. After looking around for a designer, I loved her portfolio and went with her! With that design change will be a name change. So scary! I'll officially be a school counselor blogger! I hope that my teacher followers will stick with me, though. I don't think you'll be disappointed.


I ordered a planner from Plum Paper that just shipped! I actually chose a student planner instead of the teacher planner. As a school counselor, I won't need the extra section that is in the back of the teacher planner. The student planner gives me the teacher layout, but without that. I'm hoping that this will fit my needs better. There is a section for quizzes/tests, but I bought stickers to cover that section title. I can't wait to show you when it gets here! Here is the design that I chose, but I chose to get rid of the monogram.

I'm also in office limbo! I'm hoping to get into my new office tomorrow while I'm at school for a meeting. I hope to post before and after pictures once I get settled. Going from classroom to office, I have to downsize my belongings. (I. HAVE. SO. MUCH. STUFF.) I'm looking forward to getting in there and getting started!

Well, that's it! Hopefully one of the three above will be ready to post about within the week.

Currently July

Popping in quickly to link up with Meghan for another Currently!

Listening: Nothing makes you feel like more of a bum that when the "Are you still watching..." notification pops up mid-binge.

Loving: Self-explanatory.

Thinking: Picture is worth a thousand words.

Wanting: Every time I hang out with my work friends, it makes me more sad to leave them next school year. I know this change is for the best, but that doesn't make it less painful! They are the best!

Needing: I've lost about ten pounds in the last month by cleaning up my diet. I have much more to lose, and I need to incorporate exercise to make up for my sedentary summer lifestyle!

All Star: I've always been told that I'm a great listener. So much so that I'm a popular person to vent to in various aspects of my life. This skill solidifies my career choice as a school counselor. =)
