Over the last few weeks I have played the first four games in the Uncharted Series, been to Auckland on a school trip, finished reading two books, seen several movies, done normal chores, and planned some of my trip to San Diego Comic Con. Not to mention looked after my nieces and done the whole work thing – who knew teaching was so difficult.
Anyway, I thought I would update with a currently. It’s just a quick way of sharing what I’ve been reading, watching, playing etc.
It may surprise some people to realise that I am an expert procrastinator. What I mean is that I avoid doing many of the things that I want to do due to any number of reasons. Things such as keeping up to date with my blogging, reading, writing, and numerous other activities. And, yes, teaching does take up a significant amount of time but I use it as an excuse as well.
I love autumn. There is just something about the changing colours that brings me joy. It also helps that it’s not boiling hot and I am able to walk around and not sweat the minute I walk out in the morning. I’m all for that sweater weather – the autumn aesthetic. Not to mention coffee, crisp mornings, long nights.
It’s the school holidays – the summer break – which means I have nearly a whole six weeks to do so many things. Of course, one of my main priorities is relaxing and taking some time for myself as teaching is rather draining. But, as my friends have reminded me time and time again – I’m not good at relaxing. Call me an active relaxer. Why am I this way? Who knows – it could be due to my anxiety which is tied in with my A type personality which is tied with the desire to be productive. It’s a knot of Gordian proportions.
I guess being a teacher means that time goes so much more quickly than I feel it has a right to. That being said, it’s heading into summer here in New Zealand which means it’s nearly the end of the year.
And, more importantly, it’s nearly time for NaNoWriMo.
