Currently Thursday 9th April

So we are now two weeks into our lockdown…keeping in our bubbles. Which means I have been talking to my cat as if he were a real person. It also means that I have been dancing around my house and re-enacting film scenes with said cat…which, let’s face it, isn’t that different from what I’d…

The “B” word… (busy)

Last year I realised (and was told several times) that I was always busy. Every time someone asked how I was going I was quick to respond with busy – but I realised that busy, for me, was synonymous with stressed. I found that was I was doing a lot stuff that was really not…

I Created A Bookstagram…

I am a reader. I’ve always been a reader. Yet, since I have become a teacher I feel that I haven’t been reading for pleasure as much as I used to. Sure, I read heaps of essays and educational related material but I don’t always read simply for the joy of finding new friends in…

Summer Bucket List

It is finally the summer holidays. School finished for me two days ago. This means that Christmas is just around the corner. The beaches and lakes are ready and teachers are taking their first proper breaths since term three. It also means that I suddenly have weird amounts of time on my hands which is…

Currently May Edition

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…

What I’ve Been Doing …

So it’s the new year and I’ve been busy doing a million things over the school break. Most of them trivial but some of them important. The biggest thing is I have joined up with two other nerd minded people to create a collective blog called: This Nerd Life The aim is to have three…

Currently as an update…

What am I currently doing? Everything and nothing. Do you ever get to that stage where you just are stalled because you’re not sure what you really want to do. You have ideas, mood boards, lists, and a gigantic map that highlights your next steps but you’ve kind of stalled and have pulled over while…

Why I loved Wonder Woman.

I will be the first to admit that I am not as knowledgeable about Wonder Woman as I am about Batman and that side of the DC universe. Of course I remember watching re-runs of the 1970s show and I loved watching the Justice League cartoons when I was younger and, although I know about…

Things I am not good at…

…regular blogging. I get all excited and then I forget things and then this happens… Then again, I’m not that good at being regular… well that could be TMI. In order to motivate myself to write more and take more time for me I actually paid for a domain name and everything…now that I’ve actually…

Of Tattoos and things…

You know how I talked about crossing things off your bucket list last post? Well, I crossed another thing off. I got a new tattoo. Yep, it’s an origami stegosaur with a splash of water colour.
