Listening: I am pretty much obsessed with the song “Heartbeat” by Kelly Clarkson. I heard it on tv and then started listening to it on repeat until I will hate it soon. My sister informed me it is not a new song and where have I been? I guess under a rock. I like it though – such a catchy tune!
Loving: It is Spring Break!!! I love my kinders and teaching, but I also love a bit of time to be at home and get a little break!
Thinking: I love reading. I could read novels all day long if no one interrupted me. I am not kidding – I get so lost in novels that I literally can’t start one unless I know I can finish it that day because everything else ceases to exist.
So, when I have a school break, I always read at least a few because I can stay up late! I just finished one and am now itching to click Order Now on Amazon Kindle for another, but hesitant because I have lots to do!
Wanting: Well, I guess you could say I want to read. But I also really want to get myself in gear with some ideas that I have started and not finished! I have many blog posts that are things I am passionate about, or ideas to share that I have started to create, but yet they sit in draft mode on my computer. Hopefully I can make a little dent in them over the break!
Needing: I think we go through this every month in some way when it comes to me and organization. Right now it is my clipart. I am pretty sure it was this last Currently too….. SIGH. I have been putting it off, but the time has come to really organize all my files and folders on my computer!
I have clipart in about every possible place!! To the point that I find myself searching my computer for things like “chicken” no wait it might be called “chick” no let’s try “yellow” because I can’t find the folder! So, this project must happen and soon! I am proud of myself because I DID start an Alphabet folder and put all beginning sound clipart in there, as well as a Word Family folder and put those cliparts in there (can you tell I teach K?) It’s a start!
EGGS-plain your name: My name is Alex. Just Alex. No, it isn’t Alexia. No, it isn’t Alexandra. People asked me that so often that when I was 4 I started saying “Hi, I’m just Alex!” 🙂
My mom wanted me to have a nice, simple name. She taught Kinder and felt sorry for the ones who had to learn to write names the size of Texas. We all know they will learn to do it and do it beautifully (there are some beautiful names!) but she just went with short and simple for her kiddos! So, here I am! Just Alex. 🙂
