September Currently!

It sure has been awhile since I've linked up for a Currently! but I'm so happy to have made it in time for this month's link-up.

LISTENING: Hubby is addicted to Game of Thrones. Anytime I go into my office to get some work done, the TV immediately goes on.

LOVING: I am in dire need of catching up on some rest…and relaxing. There just aren't enough hours in a 2-day weekend to get everything done!

THINKING: That I need to decorate my office! Since I'm not in the classroom this year, I've been placed in a trailer-yup…a trailer! It is nice to have my own bathroom, full size refrigerator, and water cooler……but it needs some loving. I need to turn it into a pleasant and welcoming place for teachers to come to have meetings. 

WANTING: Speaking of office- my home office looks like a tornado hit! I had to move ALL of my stuff out of my classroom into my 1100 sq. ft town house! I didn't really have much room for it all, nor the time to sort through anything….so it's just kind of all piled in my office. Not to mention that I didn't want to get rid of anything….because I may choose to go back to the classroom next year. Can you say hoarder?! There is no visible carpet space. 

NEEDING: To exercise and eat healthy. This NEED will become a GOAL that I WILL accomplish :) 

1. Being that I'm in a new position, the job responsibilities that come with being a curriculum coordinator are much out of my comfort zone. I HATE public speaking and get really awkward and nervous. My goal this year is to work on speaking (since I'm a nervous wreck each time I need to present something at a faculty meeting). I also want to work on communicating my thoughts to people. I'm on the shyer side when it comes to talking/communicating/expressing things to others, especially when it's people who I'm not too familiar or comfortable with. I'm really trying to grow this year--and working on expressing all my positive thoughts about others to their face. What good will it do to keep things in…especially when it could make someone else's day!

2. Goal 2 kind of goes along with goal 1. I'm working on being a motivator and encouraging people. It's human nature to complain, and I am definitely guilty of doing this. This year for myself, and for others, I am working on motivating myself and others to come up with a plan of action that will help to solve/make these complaints better. Complaining and grumbling will never fix our problems nor change the outcome. It takes US to spring into action to make a difference. Plus-being around negativity isn't always pleasant.

3. Last but not least, I am going to exercise, eat better and lose some weight. Enough said! :) 

What are you CURRENTLY up to?! Head on over to Farley's blog to link up!


  1. My hubby is addicted to Game of Thrones too. But he managed to get me addicted too. Good luck in your new trailer this year.

  2. I LOVE Game of Thrones! It took some getting used to, but is addicting. We even played the theme song to announce our bridal party at our wedding ha. I just redid my office/craft room and am FINALLY happy with it. It takes so much time. I love your second goal. I am no longer a teacher, but definitely saw this all the time among other teachers and myself at times.

  3. Wow! I can totally relate to your goal #1! Once, a colleague asked if I would share a lesson idea at a collaboration, and I stressed about it for the whole week leading up to it. Good for you, making it a goal to make this more of a habit for you! I also need to work on being more positive. It totally is human nature to fall into that trap, and I am SO guilty of this, sometimes daily! Wishing you the best in your new position! How fun it will be to decorate your trailer!!
