Tea Time | First Week in The Ville

It feels so weird to be typing this post as I haven’t done a tea time in so long. I miss it honestly. It was such an awesome way for me to get out what was on my mind without having something “specific” to talk about… even though what’s on my mind does all revolve around one topic: I moved! A few bloggers have my personal Facebook and have probably seen some of my journey, but exactly one week ago, I made the move to my new home… three and a half hours away from where I previously called home.

You’re probably like, “Girl, why did ya go and do that for?!” Well, I got a job! My dream job, actually. Many of you know that I have been studying to be a special education teacher for about four and half years now and I finally graduated in December! Woohoo! ūüéȬ†I honestly can’t believe that I am actually a college graduate or that I’ve got my first job already. I did not see myself getting a job right out because it is so much harder for December graduates, being that school starts in August here. However, I am so proud of myself and my determination to find what sets my soul on fire. I absolutely love my job already and I think my new school is going to be an amazing home.

As far as “titles”, I am now an ECE Resource Teacher at Portland Elementary School in Louisville, KY! It’s crazy when I actually type it out because I’m still not used to actually having the title of “teacher”. It’s been “MSU student”, “student teacher”, “student”, and so many other titles for so long that I forgot what I was actually doing all that work for. I know my mom is smiling down at me, proud.

As for Louisville, I love it! I’ve always wanted to live in a big town and this job has given me that opportunity. You really don’t realize all that you miss out on living in small towns until you make the jump. There are so many different areas of Louisville, so there is something for everyone. I’ve honestly thought about doing some local restaurant/shop reviews as I’ve already looked into some that I think could be real gems. (Would you guys be interested in this?)

Anyway, I think that’s about it for tonight. I’m going to try my best to get back into blogging regularly, but it may only be once or twice a week for now. I have lots of new products to review and put up that I’ve purchased over the last several months. Let me know if there’s anything specific you want to see reviews on!

July Goals

july goals

Goals always help me get organized for the month ahead so what better way to dance into the month of July than a goals post. These are¬†all things that I really¬†need¬†to do because it’s crunch time for me. This is my last month of summer “break” and I am going straight into schools and student teaching within the first two weeks of August. So much to do and so little time!

July Goals

  • Get organized for student teaching next month (!!!): As many of you know, I am a special education/elementary major and I am starting my final semester in school, the “internship” or student teaching on August 11th! I am so excited and I cannot wait to move forward with this journey. It has taken a lot and so much time and effort for me to make it here. I just wanna say a huge thank you to all my family, friends, and you guys for always supporting me.
  • Start using my planner again: I usually slack a lot with my planner during the summer because I don’t have a lot going on but then I feel like I still forget things and I really need to start planning better so these types of things don’t happen. I am so pumped as well because I got a Teacher Planner from Erin Condren¬†on sale¬†when they were having either 30% or 40% off. It wasn’t too expensive and I got some cute accessories to go with it as well. I will do a whole post dedicated to that soon!
  • Stay focused on blogging: I always seem to fall off as a new semester starts with blogging and I cannot and will not allow myself to do that this time. I know I always say this but I get so down and disappointed with myself whenever things get too busy for me and I forget about LOK. This place has helped me in so many ways and I truly enjoy getting to write so often.
  • Start my YouTube channel (finally)…?: I really want to know y’all’s opinion on this as it has been something I have wanted to do for a looong time but never done. I get so nervous behind the camera and I truly hate the way I look when I talk in videos… but I have so much makeup and so much love for¬†blogging¬†and I think YouTube is like the next step for me! Plus it would make doing reviews, makeup looks, and tutorials so much easier to follow and create.

That’s about it for my goals! I’ve got a lot going on these next few weeks so I don’t want to overwhelm myself too much but setting goals is always an awesome way to keep me motivated and plus I love reading other bloggers’ goals so I figure somebody else probably enjoys reading them here.
