A Little Bit of Procrastination...

Here I am, sitting on the edge of my seat...ready to type up some lesson plans but not really delving in just yet :) The past weekend was glorious - so warm, sunny, and wonderfully relaxing! I went to the beach and it was absolutely packed. I didn't mind, I love seeing people enjoying themselves outdoors and I'm glad to be part of the fresh air bunch :) It's much more fun than being a TV watching mole person :) Not that I don't watch my share of quality television sometimes...

Monday mornings can feel a bit rusty since it's all about getting back into the swing of things - the routine of your regular work. I feel so lucky to have lovely teachers around me. Hanging out in the teachers' lounge and chatting away while admiring a gorgeous ocean + mountain view = loads of good fun and laughs :) I also take my breaks there and it helps so much to take that breather between classes, connect with other teachers, and re-focus for the next class. I find that just about any experience is way better when you share it with somebody. Treading a new path on your own can be difficult, but going on an adventure with lots of friends beside you feels much better. Of course, there are some tasks that we have to tackle on our own. Like making a perfect sandwich :) But really, independence and self-sufficiency are super important too.

Ramble, ramble, ramble...see what procrastination can do?! I'm in need of some focus right now, methinks!

Do you find Mondays to be more difficult than other work days? Or is it all pretty much the same?

Happy Monday!


  1. I love your positive attitude! The way you look on the bright side of everything really reminds me to do the same. You really see the beauty in everything, whether it's in a picture or in nature or in your students! I'm glad you had fun at the beach :)

    I agree that Mondays can be rusty, some more than others. If I've had a relaxing weekend (like at the beach!), I find it harder to get back in the swing of things. But, if I've been slogging away at homework or work all weekend, well, I feel like it's just an extension of what I do during the weekdays :)

    (I want to see your perfect sandwich! Hee.)

    Have a wonderful day!

  2. Awww, I hope you'll get more time to kick off your shoes and relax on the weekend - we all deserve a refreshing break :) Now that it's sunnier and warmer it's so wonderful to run outside and feel freeee :)

    Ha ha, I'm no food photographer, but I'll try to get a sandwich photo up at some point :)
