Happy Fourth of July for my American readers. I hope you’re enjoying your day. My town celebrates on the Third of July so I watched fireworks last night. The junebugs watched with us. Those little buggers like to run right into you. Anwyway, the firework show was nice and I must say that my town knows how to do a firework finale.
As I was watching the firework show, I was reminded it has been about a year since I packed up and moved away from the parents for my first teaching job. What a year it’s been. I’ve had my ups and downs, but I’m still sticking around. Summer school finishes up in two days and then I have a month off until the school year starts again.
I’ll be spending part of that month moving into a new apartment. The current one hasn’t been so friendly to me this past year. I’m hoping this new one won’t flood every time it rains. It’s probably a good sign that I don’t see tarps on the rooftops like I do on my current apartment.
I’ll also be going to a Disneyana Convention during my month off. I’m excited about that. It’s going to be a pirate theme. I’ll take pictures and share them here.
As for writing, I haven’t participated in a ROW round in awhile, but I have continued to write. I have close to 15,000 words on the project that I last reported I had 3,500 on. I’ve been doing by participating in #wordmongering on twitter when I have time. My ROW goal for this round will be to write for 30 minutes 5 times a week.
Do you have any goals for ROW or this summer? Do you have any reflections for the past year? Summer plans?
