Educators work so hard during the school year. They spend countless hours outside of the normal 7:40-3:40 working on lessons and worrying about students. As a school counselor, I do not have the stress of having 20+ students all day in my classroom, but I do have my fair share of challenges. I taught kindergarten for three years, and I remember how exhausting it was to be “on” all of the time. While I was teaching, I was in grad school full time, so I never had a break. Now that I am finished with school, I can finally enjoy my summer.
Here is my summer bucket list (I plan on getting a few of my 30 things before I turn 30 items checked off):
I have a trip to Greece and Mexico planned and cannot wait to share with you!
I want to build up my endurance again to be able to run 6 miles by the end of the summer. This may be difficult because I am still experiencing quite a bit of pain from long walks and jogs, but I am determined.
Try and share new recipes
In my free time, I want to try new recipes. Of course, I will share my favorite ones with you.
Eat vegan for a week
This was one of my 30 things and I plan on trying this out in a couple of weeks.
Every summer I organize all my closets and cabinets, but this year I want to purge all the stuff I don’t need and start simplifying our life a bit.
Catch up with old friends
This is my favorite part of summer! Lunch dates, anyone?
I have a lot on my blog to do list this summer, including Pinterest updates and more!
This is a no brainier, but too often we, as educators, forget to relax. This year I will spend a lot of time reflecting, swimming, relaxing, drinking wine, and having quiet time to refocus and rejuvenate.
