These are my confessions:


Go ahead, channel your inner Usher.

Open up this video in a new tab. Go ahead. This post is best when read while listening.

It’s a slow week on the blog, and a super fast week in my life. Between classes and more new students and ya know, trying to sleep sometimes, blogging has fallen to the background. I know I said this last month as well, but I really do have a plan to get back to it soon. Pinky promise.

It’s Wednesday, which means it’s either wedding talk around blogland or confession time. Let’s be real the only weddings I have to talk about are the ones in the beautiful pictures on my Pinterest so that leaves confessions. Right? Right.

So here we go.

I’m falling a little in love with Chicago. I know. I feel like I’m cheating on Atlanta here but it’s happening. Have you seen this city in the fall? People talk about summers here but this fall thing is INCREDIBLE. The trees are seriously the prettiest things I’ve ever seen and the weather is perfection.

I’m legitimately afraid of winter. Contradicting my falling in love from above? Probably. But it’s the truth and these are confessions.

I bought riding boots this week and 100% have no intention of riding horses any time soon. Hmm, oh well. They are so pretty and I deserve them.

I’m exhausted. I’m probably not supposed to admit that. Emotionally, physically, mentally. They say October and February are the hardest for first year teachers, so that means it’s got to get easier for the rest of the semester, right?

I’m now in love with dry shampoo. My hair feels so much better now that I’m washing it less, and it cuts down on getting ready time on busy mornings too! All thanks to Amber!

I’ve eaten popcorn for dinner more often these past couple weeks than I’ve eaten real food. I’ve also eaten grahm crackers for lunch.

I’d be perfectly fine staying in all weekend and catching up on TV and sleep. I know it’s Halloween but I had a great birthday weekend this past weekend and now some alone time actually sounds pretty great. I love people, but I need to get away from them sometimes.

I really NEED to know who was in the bushes with Darryl at the end of Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead. I can’t wait to find out what happens!

I’m getting more sleep on a regular basis than I did in college but I’m more tired. #OldLady

No matter how many years of schooling I go through, buying textbooks always makes me want to cry. So much money gone for a book, amiright?

On the other hand, more audiobooks makes me oh-so-happy. Seriously, I’m addicted.

That’s all I’ve got for today, friends. Tomorrow I have another formal observation from my school and I’ve got preparation to do and children to teach at the same time.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

    Personally I would enjoy staying home as well curled up on the couch, a horror movie marathon going on, and passing out candy. But I’ve got to take the kiddos out trick or treating… Ugg sugar overload night!

      Woo my students were on sugar overload all day! Luckily I was able to spend the night watching movies on my couch!

      It already started snowing yesterday and I almost wanted to cry! We’ll see if I survive once real winter hits!

    Chicago falls are lovely, but the winters can be pretty tough. 🙁

    I did four of them while I was going to college. (And I’m from Texas, so I had no idea what winter really was!)

    But, I think the cold winters make you appreciate spring so much more!

    I used to live in Chicago as a child, and graduated highshool there, it is very beautiful! Especially Lincoln park. Take some time and sit in the park just to reflect and get some personal time.

    You’re right, text books are so pricey. I’m always bewildered at how a book can cost $100 and more. Btw, I really need to get myself a dry shampoo.

      DO IT! You will love dry shampoo! It really is such a life saver sometimes! And textbooks, well, I just try to ignore the prices as much as I can, haha.

    Welcome to Chicago! I live in the suburbs! Just invest in a great pair of winter boots and you will make it through the winter just fine! And be glad you weren’t around for last winter, it was rough!

    I also did grad school while teaching and the textbooks made me want to cry, too! A few of us actually started sharing them and we would make copies at school of certain pages we needed. Saved us a little money!

      Thank you! I just got some boots yesterday, actually! Once the little flurries started I wasn’t messing around! Now I just need a good coat! This semester I’m sharing a textbook too- such a good idea to save us all a little money!
