Another month gone, another personal update! I’m going to preface this one with one of those internet e-cards, because it is particularly apt considering what I’m going to be up to today:
I’m sharing this one because it makes me laugh a bit: my Summer Break is over! Today and tomorrow I have Orientation Meetings, Monday is Meet the Teacher Night, I have PBIS/Discipline training stuff on Tuesday, we’re off Wednesday, and school starts on Thursday! Where did summer go, seriously? It always just seems to fly by even though I’ve been off for over two months. Craziness!
With the start of a new school year looming, I am still cautiously optimistic that I will be able to maintain some sort of blogging consistency and continue to keep things on a regular posting schedule. I’ve been giving some thought to how I want to run things, and have come up with the following:
Monday: Review post
Tuesday: Top Ten Tuesday
Wednesday: Waiting on Wednesday
Thursday: Merin’s Musings (once a month) – the rest of the month will have something TBD
At the beginning of each new month, I will also share my TBR Pile, give a personal update via a State of Merin post, and do a Monthly Recap for the previous month.
I am still trying to come up with something I can do on the Thursdays when I don’t have a Merin’s Musings post. Since I’m doing Books & Cupcakes Monthly Photo Challenges over on Tumblr, maybe I can share some of my favorite bookish photos that I’ve taken or something. I am still debating; next week will be a Musings post, so I have two weeks to figure things out!
I am not currently planning on posting Friday-Sunday aside from the first Saturday of the month when I will share my monthly Book Haul posts. I know I am going to need this time to read and decompress from the work week, and am trying to keep things as low-key and stress-free as possible. I think that was part of my blogging failure over the last half of the school year last year; I was feeling anxious and overwhelmed over my lack of reading, and I just don’t want a repeat performance of that.
So, anyway, that’s where I’m at right now! I shall sign off with one final teacher e-card:
Bring on those staff meetings! :D
