It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year...September Currently!

Wow! I had to write that title 3 different times because I kept typing August. Wishful thinking I guess! 

I wish I could say that I've been a tad MIA lately because of something awesome like traveling outside of the country or spending countless hours on my TPT store. But the truth of the matter is, I went back to school last week! And boy oh boy is it tricky moving schools! Tomorrow is the first day with my new kiddos and I am so not ready. Not even close. 

I need to turn my teacher brain back on. Not that it was ever fully off but I'm not in teacher mode quite yet. I'm still in prep mode. 

In an attempt to get back into the swing of things I am linking up with the spunky Farley over at Oh' Boy 4th Grade for September Currently! Eeek! I love these currently's! 

Listening: Okay okay, I'll admit it. I have a problem. I am pretty sure I have been listening to Friends reruns every single time I have done my currently. It's one of my favorites! I'm not even sorry. 

Loving: I woke up this morning like a little kid on Christmas because it is officially September which means fall is here! I am love love loving this fall-esque weather! It's starting to cool down. Football is back. The leaves are changing to all of those beautiful colors. The PSL is back!

Which BTW did you know that you can get it decaf!? (I can't drink caffeine. I get physically ill). I don't know how I didn't know about this before last year. It has changed my world! 

Thinking: Exactly what everyone else is thinking. I am not ready to be back at school quite yet! Enough said. 

Wanting: Wouldn't it be great if our to-do lists could just finish themselves!? That is part of why I am not ready for school to start tomorrow, I still have so much to do! I don't even have all my curriculum/materials yet because of the new school. So stressful! 

Needing: I really need to take a shower. I got a massage this morning and part of it was a scalp massage which means that there are many kinds of massage lotions all up in my hair. And then I ran 3 miles… Luckily I don't sweat/smell! 

3 Trips: This one was so hard for me as I haven't done much traveling at all! You would think that would make it easier to choose 3 places I would like to visit but the choices are endless! I've decided that my top 3 would be Paris (I'm a girl, what can I say?), Germany (the culture/architecture is stunning) and New York (because we didn't get to go this summer)!

Well there's my September Currently! Back to lesson planning, prepping and organizing for tomorrow! Don't forget to go link up your September Currently! I love reading everyones! 

Good luck to everyone who is also starting next week!


  1. I'm jealous of your fall-like weather. It's over 90 degrees here in North Carolina. It's awful!

    I've been back to school for a week, and I'm still not ready for summer to be over. I miss the lazy days!!

  2. Another Friends friend! Seriously, they may as well be in our living rooms. --It sounds like everything is getting to the point right before it all magically falls together. I totally understand the different mind sets. The adjustments we have to make should make any psychologist stand up and applaud. -- Fall. best.time.ever. With the PSL, you should also try hazelnut or toffee nut if you like that sort of thing. Worked at a BN cafe for a while. We tried many different combinations. I hope you take it all in!

  3. I'm SO excited about Fall too! It's been so hot for so long here in San Diego. Have a great short week of school!


  4. Hi Tasha, You are so right about the "thinking"! It's always a hard transition I'm glad you got to enjoy some of your day with a massage and run!


  5. I just found your blog through Farley's linkup. Your blog looks great BTW.

  6. I hope your first week went well! My to-do list is NEVER ending but I don't write it down. I joke with my students that at all times I have 100 things to do and I stay at school until midnight. I love your blog!
