I’ve been a real big slacker lately because of work. I’ll admit it. Between setting goals for next year, grading short stories, and generally trying to keep my sanity I have had a PILE of products to talk about, but the energy has not been there. Real talk. Teachers don’t stop working when the last bell rings. I know I don’t have to say that more than once. But, summer is here…almost. Memorial Day has always been the unofficial start of summer for most teachers. Here’s how I’m feeling as of right now…and probably up until their graduation when I ugly cry because I’ll miss them. 

After lunch all hell breaks loose. At this point in the year I’m like, can we just not get hurt?

I also let them police themselves. Sorry, I’m not stressin’ at this point in the year. Luckily, I have at least one rational person in each class who can discipline as well as I can. 

Another assembly? But…I have things for them to READ! And stuff for them to WRITE!

Sometimes I just yell incomprehensible nonsense at them. They’ve accepted it’s that time of the year.

But despite all of that, I’ll be doing THIS come June 10 when they move on to the world of high school. 

Just stay tuned! I’ve got some amazing vegan nail polish and cruelty free summer essentials headed your way!
