The Cutest LGBTQIA+ Podcast on Spotify
Have you been looking for a wholesome, sweet, and adorable podcast to listen to lately? Me too and I am happy to inform you that I found one. The Two Princes is an original fictional podcast full of fun, mystery, suspense, and love. The characters being LGBTQIA+ is just an amazing added bonus. It isn't sexual or rated R which, for me, just makes it the best wholesome podcast to listen to right now.
I am sure, like many of you, I have been put through the ringer this past year and a half. I struggled. I had my friends, my family, myself, and my students to worry about during every stage of the pandemic. My life was turned upside down, and coping with it felt impossible. I burned out so quickly within my job and my life. So I looked for therapy.
We Tired Teachers
A recent series of events has led me to consider leaving my profession as a teacher. The idea had never passed my mind before, until yesterday. I am not alone in this. 1 in 4 teachers have left education as a profession entirely. Grading, lesson planning, counseling, and all the other tasks we have to do are already incredibly overwhelming. It's enough to burn out the strongest of us already, but I have never experienced a year like this.
Lately, I have felt like an impostor. I have been teaching for three years now. That's three years of lesson plans, grading, working with students, making assessments, and working with colleagues. Even with the pandemic making my experience different from most other newer teachers, I still have quite a bit of experience under my belt now.
Gaining Confidence and Love
Deja. Why did I pick the name Deja for my rescue dog? Deja means "already" in French. I named her Deja because when I saw her picture on the rescue's website she was already my dog, before we had even actually met. Something about her beautiful smile and brown eye just drew me in. I knew she was meant to be my dog. I emailed about her immediately.
The Exhausted Teacher
Teaching in person, teaching virtually, teaching a hybrid of the options, every teacher is bending over backwards during this pandemic to make things work. Students are distracted and disengaged. Admin are pressuring teachers and constantly changing the plan. Why? Because honestly there is no plan. Vaccines are around the corner but just out of reach as teachers get sick. Teachers aren't just tired, they are exhausted.

How To Be Active At Home During Quarantine, And Why It's So Hard To Stick To It
The earth has rotated around the sun for yet another year, and what a year it was. For most of 2020, Americans spent it in quarantine. We worked from home, we cooked at home, we ate at home.
