A Swinger of Birches

Ask me anything   Submit   My little blog in my little corner of the world. I teach middle school. I listen to music. I hang out with my friends. I am attempting to be healthy. I love hard.

Happy Taco Wednesday, y’all! Mike and I cover Jewel to celebrate.

Why Being A Teacher Costs A Lot More Than The Price Of A Teaching Degree
Sitting in class as a student, one of the last things you think about is where all of the classroom supplies came from. The school fairy, maybe?

But realistically, at least some of them probably came out of the teacher’s own wallet. The perks of being a teacher (educating future generations!) might outweigh the cost of staplers and bulletin boards, but isn’t it still alarming to see the financial hoops many must jump through just to do their jobs?

Weight Watchers Week 5

So this is my face, Tumblr. This is my 3rd attempt to post this because my app won’t work :(
Anyway, I lost 1.8 pounds this week for 13.2 pounds total! So excited :) I feel like Weight Watchers might be right for me. I am motivated and focused. And fairly proud. Maybe I really can lose all the weight I need/want to.
Goal this week: Walk/run with my dog four times.
