Self-care aha moment
teaching // APRIL 21, 2018
Teachers aren't the only professionals who neglect self-care. Therapists and doctors see back-to-back clients. Chefs and parents don't get nights, weekends, or holidays off. While the importance of self-care may resonate with people from various walks of life, I'm talking to directly to you, teacher tribe. It's easy for us rationalize skipping self-care. It's easy to say that we'll eat lunch tomorrow or promise ourselves that we'll head to the gym this weekend.

Love in ya fiction
lifestyle // july 1, 2017
I react to the article "Please Stop Marrying Fictional Characters to People They Met as Children, It's Creepy". In this rant piece (hey, not my words - it is labeled as such), author Katherine Trendacosta claims that a character marrying someone he or she met as a child is not only a "trope that is nigh ubiquitous in YA novels," but that it is also "creepy as hell."
