Is the weather so crazy because of this coming transition from summer to fall? Wow! I think I experienced all forms of weather this week (except snow…thankfully!). From extreme heat in the 90s to cold temps in the morning (and below zero temps in classrooms!), to scary gloomy pouring rain and storms. It’s hard to know what to wear! More crazy transitions I’m experiencing? O the excitement of school work 😛 This is the year of science and math and let me tell you, I really don’t like math! However, a necessary evil that “must” accompany the science class. It’s pre-calc, so things are coming back to me from senior year of high school, but still, I’d rather write essays and analyze a text than do 500 million math problems that will never benefit me in the practical sense. I actually liked math when I was younger (I’m talking Algebra I), but as things started getting more “out there”, that love was lost 😉 And props to the adults who didn’t have scientific calculators back in the day! (Although learning to use those can be just as hard as doing the math and graphing yourself!)
I am feeling better about staying on top of things like I talked about last week though. Even though this year I have more work than last, it feels good to finish an assignment, move on to the next, and slowly make progress to my end goal (which I’ve finally figured out). I still have to see how things go, but I may end up switching up my posting. It may be Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, instead of Tuesday, but we’ll see! And don’t worry I still was able to gather up some great posts (and food pins) for you of course!
So if you’re like me and didn’t feel like this week was “shorter” with that 3 day weekend, take a deep breath, grab some coffee, sit back, and start click, click, clicking away at the links that peek your interest (and the drool-worthy food!) xoxo
