Currently in March
So, for a while I've been reading others' blogs and I've always seen the fun "Currently" posts that originate from Oh' Boy 4th Grade and now I get to do my own!
I'm a little to the party this month, but here goes anyway:
Listening - I'm a fan of 1940's music, especially jazz, and Billie Holiday is one of my all time favorites.
Loving - Wonder by R.J. Palacio is one of the best books I've read in a while, and I'm an avid reader. This is going into my rotation of books that I'll read with my kids every year.
Thinking - We have our state standardized writing tests this upcoming week. I feel like I've done my best to prepare my students, but I'm still dreading them. I hate having to sit there and watch the kids do formulaic writing to a prompt for hours on end, for 3 days.
Wanting - A big mug of coffee and a donut would be great right now. I can remedy the coffee problem, but the donut is not worth driving to the store for. Alas!
Needing - My wife and I have a horrible habit of eating out, getting take-out or eating from a package. We haven't been blessed with any kids to feed, so it's usually just easier to grab something for two than it would be to cook for two. Still, we really need to stop!
Like/Love/Hate - I like new teaching blogs that I can add to my list to read. Nothing bums me out more (okay maybe some things) than seeing my little Google Reader App displaying "0 new items" to read.
I love a good novel. I read more than is probably good for me, and I've usually got 3 to 4 books going at once. It's a real problem.
I hate this winter weather! It's time to end! I typically ride my Vespa pretty much everywhere I go, but for months it's been too cold. We've been teased with warm weather this weekend, and I can't wait for it to warm up enough to ride again.
So...time to go make that coffee and smash an english muffin into a donut shape! So long for now!
