Now that August is here it is the sad sign of the impending end to my summer vacation. This summer has felt kind of weird. I have worked quite a bit – over 16 hours moving into and setting up my new classroom, not to mention hours reading and planning for the year. But overall it is kickass getting to make your own schedule and have no real set plans. I’m going to miss it. It always feels so short. I haven’t workout out as much this summer as I was planning too. I’ve felt really lethargic the passed few weeks. I do have some goals I am working on, and feel that I will be able to develop a more consistent routine now that my work is so close to the gym.
Here is a sample of what I’ve been up to lately:
