    Think About It Thursday--New (School) Year Resolutions

    If you are anything like me you have probably completely forgotten what resolutions you made back in January. With the new school year starting I felt it was a perfect opportunity to come up with some new resolutions. I didn't want to overdo it so I have three top resolutions for this school year...

    1. Go to bed earlier!- I have been a night owl for as long as I can remember. I swear my best ideas happen after 9pm which is horrible because no one likes tossing and turning at night because you can't stop thinking about how you are going to change a lesson or rearrange your desk! I need to go to bed earlier.

    2. Get up earlier!- Anyone who has taught with me and pretty much anyone who has tried to meet me somewhere knows I am always late! This is mostly due to the fact that I am NOT a morning person. I move so slow in the morning and on most days I wish caffeine could be injected intravenously! I think a lot of this stems from the problem in resolution #1.

    3. Leave school earlier!-(Hmmm I am beginning to sense a theme here.) As I mentioned last week, I am a bit of a perfectionist which leads to many late nights at school "perfecting" whatever project I am currently working on. This leads to getting home late... eating dinner late... and going to bed late. It's a vicious cycle!

    Wish me luck on my resolutions and leave comments on what resolutions you want to have for this school year! Best of luck to all my readers on a new school year!
