Need. More. Time.

With a few rough months behind me, I think it's time to focus on some positive and easily attainable goals to lift my spirits a bit. And by goals, I don't mean things like losing 10 lbs (although I should highly consider that one...) or getting a raise (I'm a teacher. Stop laughing.). I mean fun, meaningful activities that I don't always get the chance to do.

We all have them... You know all those things you wish you could do if only you "had more time?" Lately I've been thinking about all those things... And with the pink slip I received a couple weeks ago--standard procedure in my district for all non tenured teachers--and the the way things are going for public school teachers right now, there is a chance "thinking" about those things may actually turn into an opportunity to "do" those things in a couple of months.

Now let me preface this by saying, I am not worried too concerned about my job next year. I might be tempting Fate here, but I know the kids need to be taught and they will need teachers to teach them. However, a pink slip is a pink slip and nothing is guaranteed.

But, back to those "things" ... I've compiled a list of things I'd love to do with a little more free time.
