Let that Fish Climb

I've been seeing a lot of this comic, or similar sentiment recently. It's mostly being used as propaganda against standardized testing. And while I'm not necessarily a fan of standardized testing, or at least of the way it's used in this country, wielded as a tool to judge students and teachers alike, I've come to the realization that I don't agree with this sentiment.

Not one bit.

Subscription Boxes

at 11:15 AM 1 comments
Subscription Boxes are the new craze and it seems like everyone has to have them! From Birchbox to Lootcrate, there are choices for makeup, Japanese snacks, video games, doggie treats, and so much more! The idea is that you pay a fee per month and every month a package shows up at your door filled with awesomeness. Now, I love packages. And, to be honest, I love fads. So I wanted in on this. I scoured the internet for different boxes that would suit me (and there were upwards of a thousand) but I came to the conclusion I didn't need 5 new pieces of jewelry every month (I barely wear what I have) or a sampling of beauty products I will never use, or a new lipstick in every shade imaginable. So I gave up looking.

And then. My friend Sarah tagged me in a random post on Instagram. @earthcookiecreates was offering something called a "Jane Box" and my friend, knowing my love of Jane Austen, though I'd be interested. Boy was I interested. So I bought one. Not a normal subscription box because it was a one-time offer, but it ended up being my gateway in.

Memory Jars

This post should have happened around New Year's, but to me summer vacation was always more of a fresh start than New Year's Day. My brain has always run on a school calendar, even when I wasn't taking classes, so I guess it's a good thing I became a teacher. But, even though this was my New Year's "resolution" I think it could be relevant any time of the year you wanted to start it. It started when HelloGiggles posted a BuzzFeed article on Facebook called "Here's What You Should Do Instead Of Making New Year's Resolutions."
The article talked about decorating a jar to fill full of memories throughout the year. The idea is that next New Year's Eve, you sit and read through all of the things you put in the jar throughout the year and feel proud.

So my friend and I set a day to decorate them for ourselves and our moms.

Unicorns and Bacon

My good friend Stacy threw a party for our friend Elena. Elena's birthday coincided with the end of the school year, and she's leaving us to go to college next year, so we wanted a big shindig! Stacy, in all her creative awesomeness, themed the party Unicorns and Bacon. So, of course, I went to Pinterest to comply with the theme!

Photos and recipes below!
