  • absolutely obsessed with the new plan for #RoomatesWIP my friend and i came up with. this story is really starting to come together with a beautiful message about trauma and family and nature.

  • also realizing i haven't posted photos of my little orange furball in a hot second, so here's leo being a sunshine boi this morning to remedy that! guesses on how old he is are very much welcome.

  • suddenly realized after seeing @BluesClues post about the golden girls that i probably should share my own family's chick-related news on this very much chicken-loving site. i don't take care of them myself, but we did hatch some chicks very recently! here's a photo of the adorable little balls of fluff from the day after they hatched.


    Mageheart @lliyah i think you'd especially get a kick out of these little guys <333

  • today is time to do the most dreaded part of edTPA: watching recordings of myself and then analyzing everything i did in them

    i can't wait to painfully watch myself use the same annoying filler words and stumble over my words while talking with students <333

    Mageheart i'm also not sure the recordings are genuinely the best i've ever taught, so i'm going to have to do a LOT of work to make up for it in my reflection.

  • sad to admit that i was so busy yesterday and distracted by both school & dnd that i totally forgot to write more of my novel :( yesterday was the first day i didn't even write a snippet

    ...though i did very much think about it on my way to school and way back home, since its playlist's songs came up in my daily mix playlist.

  • not there being an early dismissal back at school on the very first day i ever chaperone a field trip

  • forgot how grounding sitting down at my keyboard writing a story can be after having so many days where i didn't do that. i've gotten in the habit of writing on my phone at night and when i'm waking up in the morning, which is...a very different experience. but this really makes me feel like i'm pausing & taking a break from my hectic day and week

    Stringbean teach me your ways, wise master :')

  • one last little writing update that i totally forgot to give updates on: #RoomatesWIP got a restart! i was really struggling with writing my side of things in the story, so my friend and i decided to revamp it and figure out what made our original fic/rp work so well. now we have some new characters filling up old characters' roles, but those characters still get fun cameos in roles more fitting of them!

    here's a fun little #teaser i wrote a few days ago of one of my newest kids, blake, being a total icon. she's such a riot to write.

    Blake grinned.

    "I'm glad you asked," she said. She grabbed Mads by the arm and jerked them out of the bedroom. "We have to celebrate you getting a job with a mandatory psychic reading. You're going to get to meet the infamous Little Red Riding Hood."

    "She means our friend Red," Kody supplied, peeking his head out from the stairs. He had heard Blake's voice and come down to see what was going on.

    "Also known as our ex," Blake added. "She's got a psychic gig she does outside of her other job. She's done readings for all of us. Me, plant boy, social recluse-"

    "She even did one for Gordy," Kody added, "back when he lived here and she did, too."

    Mageheart (Gordon/Gordy and Red were both the original roommates! Blake's replaced Red, and "social recluse" is our replacement for our boy Gordon.)

Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.
