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 you try to figure it all out.

I’m stalled.

So, while I try to figure out my steps I will update you with my currently list.

Reading: I just started Beauty Queens by Libba Bray. I’m barely started but already I am loving the satire. It has been described as the female version of Lord of the Flies and, it may well be, but I am loving the commentary that it provides. Imagine a plane full of wannabe beauty queens crash landing on a “deserted” island… and that’s all I’m going to leave you with.

Playing: Wordscapes and Fallout 4. The first one is just a free game on the app store where you get a circle of letters and you have to make words out of the letters and they fit into the crossword type puzzle at the top. And Fallout 4 currently has been going round in circles. I just sided with the Railroad for the time being before I plan to fully side with the Minutemen… well, I think that’s my plan. I died six times in a row last night trying to take out a Courser.

Watching: I’ve finally gotten around to watching Teen Wolf. So that has been playing in the background while I try to write. I’ve also just introduced my nieces to Stranger Things which has been fun. (If you haven’t watched it yet please get on top of it…)

Listening: I watched Matilda the Musical recently and have been listening to that soundtrack on repeat. Not gonna lie – loved “When I Grow Up” and “Revolting Children.”

Doing: Trying to figure out how to get my car back on the road… metaphorically…

So there we go. A quick update and hopefully some clarity will come eventually.

Peace and pancakes.


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 invested money in blogging maybe I’ll actually do something with it. I mean, I have been blogging on and off for the last fifteen plus years so I may as well try to make it more official. Or at least make myself feel a little bit guilty about putting money into something and then leaving it to collect dust.

The next thing is to figure out what I really want to do with this blog. If you click on the about page you’ll see that I’ve made a separate blog for my teaching. Partially because I want something else that I can write about than just teaching. I mean, I love teaching but I am more than just a teacher. I need a proper outlet for my geeky endeavours, right?

So, I am toying around with a few ideas. Some along the lines of more reviews – films, novels, shows etc.

I want to have more of my Five Things lists as well.

If there are any other things that you would like me to write about let me know.

In the meantime you’ll notice that the layout will be changing over the next few weeks while I figure out how I want my blog to look. I’m just fussy – I’ve already spent most of this afternoon fart assing around with the layout and I’m still not happy.

To tide you over here is a quick list of my current obsessions… Continue reading
