I've come to a (not-so-shocking) realization. I've realized that I don't update my blog because I'm lazy nor is it because of a lack of things to share. I don't blog because I have one of the shortest attention spans of anyone that I know. If you could just listen to my inner monologue for a few minutes, you'd quickly realize what I'm talking about. Here's a sample for you:
"I can't wait for the Hunger Games movie tonight! I hope it's as good as the books. I need to read more books. I need to use the Nook that Kevin got me for Christmas. I hope he doesn't think I don't like it. I hope we can get good seats at the theater. I wonder if I should wear shorts or pants. I need more shorts for summer. I can't wait for summer. I want to go on a cruise or something!"
That it is all to say, I finally GET why I'm not an A+ blogger! And, you know what? That's okay! I'm going to do the best I can & if people what to listen to me, let them. If not, that's alright too! So, this past week was my Spring Break! Another time I remember one of the awesome perks of being a teacher (apart from the whole preparing the nation for its future leaders -- blah blah blah). I have been very productive over my break. I did ALL my laundry which is pretty much something that should go into the history books. I've done a lot of spring cleaning, patio gardening planning, & also just straight up chilling. Here are some pictures to prove I'm alive & well!
I bought a new dress! Please excuse the blurriness. My boyfriend has shaky camera hands.
I'm taking a pottery class at a local art center with some teacher friends.
This is my first batch of completely finished & glazed pots. I'm (more than a little) proud of myself.
We got a new patio set for the balcony. It's so stinkin' cute. I also have plans to make a pallet garden. I've already "rescued" a pallet from the back parking lot of my local grocery store.
Stumbling upon murals & small parks such as this one around my city is the exact reason why I love where I love so much! People may talk crap about Cincinnati, but there are so many hidden gems if you are willing to do a little exploring!
To those of you readers who can stomach my spastic blogging, you get mad props from me! Enjoy your Saturday!
