May 2018: What I’ve Been Up To

jakarta-1-2

Most of my May wasn’t too terribly interesting, as I continued living and working in the suburbs of Jakarta. Highlights from the first part of the month included watching Deadpool 2 and Solo, visiting a few new malls, and eating some good vegan food.

April 2018: What I’ve Been Up To

When I started drafting this post on April 11th, I wrote an intro explaining that my April wasn’t very exciting; it had been uneventful so far, and I expected that trend to continue throughout the rest of the month. I’m happy to say that I was wrong!

April 2017 – March 2018: What I’ve Been Up To

A year ago, I was experiencing some of the worst times of my life. I was struggling with mental and physical health, and I was not feeling comfortable in my career. I loved my students but was so burnt out from the challenges of teaching and being a team leader. Even living just outside Disney World was not much of a silver lining, because I often didn’t have the time or the energy to spend time there. I stopped attempting to update my blog because I had started to hate writing as much as my students did. I promise, I’m in a much happier place right now, but I think it’s worth recording some of the challenges and highlights of my past year.

Since the year started, I knew March was going to be incredibly busy, and it certainly was. It felt like almost every moment of my time was booked, but I still managed to enjoy myself every step of the way.

The new year has been off to a fantastic start! I can’t believe it’s only been a month because of how much I’ve accomplished over the past few weeks. If you’re along for the ride on this month’s update, buckle in–it’s been a month of big changes!

December 2016: What I’ve Been Up To

If you’re a teacher, then the best way to sum up the first 2 weeks in December is: survival mode. Once my last day of school was finished, I hit the road and went to pick up my little sis from Georgia.

November 2016: What I’ve Been Up To

The first part of November passed in a blur of being sick with a monster cold/flu hybrid. After a few months of only having some cheap beanbags to sit on, I finally got myself a nice couch at IKEA. So between bedrest and wanting to enjoy my new couch, I watched a lot of TV this month.

October 2016: What I’ve Been Up To

While I’m usually a pretty chipper person, I always look forward to October since it gives me a reason to celebrate the macabre: I use it as an excuse to go out occasionally with black lipstick, read spooky books, watch horror films, decorate my house and classroom with bats, and seek out any other appropriately scary/dark things.

August and September 2016: What I’ve Been Up To

After a full month of road tripping in July, I was happy to be back in Florida, but the adventures slammed to a halt at the beginning of August when it was time to go back to school.
