Travel Log: Germany


Hi Friends! Last time I checked in, I was heading out from Prague on the train towards Berlin, Germany! Most of my family members have travelled to Germany over the years, but I somehow hadn’t, so I was really excited to get there. I hopped on a train from Prague around noon, and was supposed […]

Travel Log: Poland


Hi Friends!  I haven’t had a sec to update everyone on my travels for a little bit!  Last we left off I was flying out from Norway to Poland. Why Poland, you wonder?  Well, when I started to research possible locations for my “grand tour,” I really wanted to get to a few locales that […]

Travel Log: Norway


Years ago, I had a really, really tough class that I was teaching. I had to be really creative to get them to behave in a socially acceptable manner. They were a little younger (aged 10-12) and somehow I figured out that they loved, and I mean LOVED, the sing-along version of the Disney movie […]

Book Review: How to Be Alone by Lane Moore

Life, Reading

Hi Friends! I’m FINALLY getting around to reviewing my first book of 2019! ICYMI, I made a goal to read 20 books in 2019, so I’m trying to keep a good 1.5-2 book per month groove going. This book appeared on a Buzzfeed list about self-help books that didn’t read like self-help books. Since reading […]

Friday Faves: January Edition


Hi Friends! When I first started this blogging thing, I hopped on the “Friday Faves” bandwagon, and for a few weeks I really enjoyed it. Then a week or so passed when I didn’t necessarily have any new favorites, and so I felt like I was forcin’ it, which is the last kind of content […]

To All The Romance Novel’s I’ve Read This Year…


This past summer, I re-discovered the glory that is a moderately trashy (but compelling!) romance novel. Between July and December I whipped through five romance novels, all of which were frivolous and fun and just what the doctor ordered. Here are my rankings! 5.

Book Review: The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon


So, firstly, you should know that I love a good YA Novel. I loved YA growing up, of course, but my love for it returned when i became a teacher.

19 Goals for 2019! (+Website Restoration update)


Hi Friends:) For the past week, I’ve been doing a bit of reconnaissance on this blog. Here’s what I believe happened, in my extremely un-trained words: A Wordpress plugin malfunction resulted in about a dozen full backup files being saved to my URL’s disc space last June. With the disc space nearly full, the backup application then […]

The Worst.


You know what’s the worst? Signing on to your blog to draft out a long-anticipated update and then having your entire website crash and burn when you clicked “okay” on an update. It could have been worse, but not much; My backup plugin had stopped functioning back in June for some reason, and so I […]
