Well, as you may have heard, Chicago is having it's annual "Snowpocalypse", or as we used to call it, "Winter". I guess I'm weird, but it really didn't seem that bad out when I went grocery shopping, my car didn't even slide! Now, I'm the most "over" cautious driver I know. If you are ever stuck behind me trying to turn left, I'm sorry. I will literally wait until there are ZERO cars around to make my turn, and you will probably hate me. I would, too. :)
Anyway, I put in my currently above, and I figured while I'm here, I'd give an update on my 30 day challenge! My students will be done on the 5th, so I'll have more to update then, but I started mine on the 31st!
30 Days of Bringing Lunch to school: I DID IT!! YAY! I was so proud of myself, but on the last day, as you may have seen on my FB page, I almost didn't make it. I got up, looked in the fridge, saw there was no food...sometimes I'm really lazy about that basic survival stuff...and thought, "PB&J!" I made my little sandwich, put out my peanut butter, and went to the fridge for my jelly. Expired. Like, really expired, kill me if I try it expired. So I text my colleague, and she totally saved me by bringing me some of her grape jelly. That was a long tangent. But anyway, I did it, I lost a couple of pounds, and I saved some money in the process! I am going to try and make it a lifelong habit, but I can occasionally get lunch with my co-workers here and there now without feeling guilty.
30 Days of taking a One Second Video: I DID IT! Now, this is a year long project, but I'm glad I stuck to it for the first month. A few days ago I went to bed at 7:30 for no good reason, and I think I actually woke myself up so that I could take a video. It ended up being a few seconds of my glowing Nook. I'm struggling with finding something interesting to take a video of every day. Often times I will get home and think, "I wish I had videotaped _________" that happened today. Regardless, it's fun to look back at my videos and see how the month went!
I'm still trying to think of a good 30 Day Challenge this month, my goal is to decide by tonight. Any suggestions??
