Weekly Wishes!

Weekly wishes

Sweet little Macy girl! Every summer when I go home I tend to bring home another animal- I wonder how much longer my family will continue letting me come home?

Well I’m back in Chicago and already missing this sweet girl’s face! However, my new roommate’s cat has decided I’m her new best friend so I’ve still been waking up with a furry thing beside me! Also, yesterday when I came back from a shopping trip I got the best parking space right in front of my apartment so now I never want to leave. I suppose I have to go to work though!

Last week was so much fun with my family- I was so sad to leave! This weekend I accomplished moving, getting a bed, and putting together a dresser so I feel pretty accomplished going into this week It’s the first week of work and school and the beginning of this new chapter of my life!

Last week’s wishes were to:

1) Be sure to make the most of my time left with my family. Done! I just wish I could have had more time.

2) Get all moved into my new apartment! Done! I’m in and mostly settled and don’t have too much more to do.

3) SERIOUSLY get everything figured out with my new school. HAHAHA no. Not at all. But ya know, that’s life.

4) Keep baking and cooking and doing these things that allow me to love on and care for my family in such a fun way. Yes! And I loved every minute of it.

This week, my goals are to:

1) Enjoy getting to know and getting used to my new school! Starting work is terrifying and incredibly exciting all at the same time. Time to put all this education and training to good use!

2) Not cry at school. #TeacherLife This week is going to be so busy! I have either meetings or grad school classes every day after work this week. I know that stress and no sleep are going to take a toll on me, so really my goal is just to keep it together!

3) Make some time for myself at some point this week. I need to keep doing my yoga for my sanity and my body!

That’s going to be it for this week. I just want to focus on getting all settled into this job and back into the city most of all!

What are you goals this week? Have a busy week too? Let me know so I can cheer you on!

    You are going to do amazing at your new school! Just stay positive no matter what and embrace the change. I know what it’s like to make this kind of transition (I cried almost every day for my first semester of college ever because I was so scared) but eventually you will get a hold of it and you’ll take it on like a badass wonder woman! <3

    It is not always fun being away from loved ones, but you will make some great memories and will have some incredible experiences. It is definitely important to make time for yourself.

    I am spending this entire week cleaning and organizing our home. It’s gotten out of hand and I need to get things back into shape. In between cleaning, I will be going on play dates with out little guy too so overall, it will be a week filled with cleaning and play. Just how I like it.

    Teaching is the BEST JOB EVER! I taught for 4 years and I loved it so much but I will say it is sooooo exhausting and can be emotionally stressful and overwhelming! Especially the first 2 years. You can do, remember that you’re making a difference even if you don’t feel like you are! Teachers have one of the most important jobs! Good luck! What grade?

    She is the cutest little thing!!!! Good luck on your goals this week! When I just need a sane moment to myself, i write in my gratitude journal..im almost positive its saved me from tears more than a few times!

    That is the cutest dog! I can’t work out if she is full grown or just a puppy. Goals for the week? Well, I would like to finish re-organising our shared craft room/office. Fingers crossed!

    Oh I know about getting back into the groove at the beginning of the school year. I’m doing the same. I teach in Abu Dhabi and went home for the summer, it felt so good to be with my mom and friends. Leaving family is always super hard.
    Wishing you all the best in the new job and with your goals.
