I’ve Moved!

March 22, 2017

I find it ironic that after ditching a 30 day writing plan I decided to make an even more ambitious goal of writing a weekly blog. Life is ironic sometimes!

ST Reflections // 11/30 Days

October 26, 2016

Guess who started substitute teaching? Mind has been firmly centered on anticipating anything that could go wrong in any classroom, thus the delay in this post.

Joseph // 6/30 Days

October 15, 2016

On a Sabbath walk four days ago, I ran into great friends who I haven’t seen in too long.

One of them reminded me of my lingering 30 days of writing. Thank you for the encouragement, R ! Resuming starting now.

Lots of life transitions lately. Resigning from one position, embarking on another. I’m thankful for the transitions! And I’m thankful for Joseph.
