    2. TV watching & being on the computer
    3. Morning walking (at my indoor mall, park, & college alma mater grounds) & I need to head back to the gym!

    150 books and only four behind at this point? I'm impressed! My Goodreads goal this year is 16 books.r

    1. Family trip to DC and a cruise
    2. Reading a lot, maybe even some for school
    3. Relax and recharge

    I finally set a book goal, and have found myself just about two books into my 20-30 kids book goal for the summer! Finally reading the two first books in the "Diary of..." & "Dork Diaries" series...it'll help me better connect with those kids who love those books and help them find others!

    Good idea! I really need to read those, too. I did read the first 2 Wimpy Kid books a couple years ago, but not Dork Diaries. I brought home a lot of books from my library (not those) to choose from, and so far have read 2. I love reading what my kids read - it creates such great community!

    Interestingly enough, the Dork Diaries book seemed better than the Wimpy Kid books - more detail and depth, with an actual somewhat-storyline too it. Just the fact that the latter book took place over a whole year (in ~200 pages), vs. Dork Diaries taking place over a month and a half or so (in ~280 pages) showed that.

    The funniest thing is that I think I recognized some of the narrative techniques from Dork Diaries from having seen some of the girls in my class used it in their narrative writing...haha.

    I'm 5 books behind now!! Well, after tomorrow I have 2 weeks off before summer school starts so I'll catch up for sure. I have a plan of about 8 books that I have to read and submit reviews for to start with.

    Today is graduation! I can't wait to start relaxing this weekend. We might go to one of those Escape Room venues. Has anyone tried them? They sound interesting but I'm afraid of not being able to escape LOL :toofunny:

    Reading the Song of Ice and Fire series. Watching Game of Thrones in tandem with reading. Hopefully entering another powerlifting competition soon.

    1) Vacation! I just got back from visiting Colonial Williamsburg with my sister and best friend. I'm planning a visit to see my family for a couple of weeks next!

    2) Reading! After four years of my undergrad in English and going through my first year of teaching, I'm finally enjoying reading for pleasure again. I had set a goal to read 20 books this year, but I have only one done. I'm hoping to catch up this summer!

    3) Moving! I decided to leave my job for a private school position near my family. That means moving to another state, but I'm really excited about the change!

    Thank you! It's all happening so fast, but I feel really good about my new school and the area I'm moving to.

    It's time to relax during summer so if I'm a teacher, I'll probably focus my time for a family get together or bonding. I'll organize an outing for the whole family.

    I've been working at a summer retail job to support my clothing addiction. I finished one conference and have 2 more to go! I'm also taking my 84 year old mother to Florida for a family wedding.
