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…

Writing and motivation

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…

50 000 words written

I did it again. I spent this month writing 50 000 words for NaNoWriMo. 50 000 words. 30 days. Unlimited plot holes and mixed up timelines.

NaNoWriMo 2018

How is it nearly November again? Seriously. 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…

Adventures in …

It’s that time of the year again. San Diego Comic Con. Well, it’s nearly that time but I am back in California, hanging with my Uncle and family over here. This also means that I’ve been drinking far too many ice cold caffeinated beverages and trying to relax but also trying to stimulate my brain…

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…

An Expensive Week and NaNo Talk

It’s been an expensive week for me. My laptop, which had survived many overseas trips, adventures and stories, finally decided to give up. After three hours of me trying to restart it and getting nothing but a flashing icon I knew that I had to shell out for a new computer. So I am typing…

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…
