THE WEEK IN REVIEW: “April Showers” (APRIL 23rd – April 30th)

Posted April 30, 2017 by @Angelized_1st in Memes, The Sunday Post / 12 Comments

I decided that I would do a weekly recap, and link up with The Sunday Post, which is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer, that was inspired in part by In My Mailbox. It’s a post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

The end of the school year is just flying by. I have less than 30 work days left, and I couldn’t be happier. I’m still trying to transfer to another school, but I found out on Friday that I got my wish to switch to 4th grade next school year. I’ve never taught 4th before, but I think my experience as a 5th-grade teacher will be an added bonus, as I know what the students need to know going into the final year. I’m also excited as my European trip looms closer and closer.

Aside from work, I spent the week watching my Ebay listing. In the end, a scammer won the auction for my iPhone. I knew he was one since he joined the same day, and over bid for my phone. Now I have to relist my device. What sucks is that I had a real buyer interested in it, before the scammer outbid him 🙁 On the positive side, I was able to realize the scam before I mailed out my iPhone, and contacted Ebay to inform them of the situation.

Saturday I participated in Dewey’s 24-hour Read-a-thon. I decided to play it smart this time around and drank plenty of water. I also didn’t eat a lot of junk and drink tons of caffeinated beverages. I ate regular meals and took frequent breaks. Of course, there was snacks and coffee, but I didn’t overdo it.

      I’m so ready for summer! This year has been super stressful. Even though I only have 26 more days of the year, I wish today was my last day. I’m so over it. Ha! I can’t wait for the trip. I’m really excited. Have a great week!

  1. Yay for only 30 days of school! We are done June 2nd, but who is counting!? Congrats on getting the 4th grade position. I am not sure I could teach elementary. I taught 5th grade for 1 year; that was enough for me. I’m crazy and will pick the hormonal teenagers I teach!
    When and where are you going? I leave for Europe on June 16th! We are going to London, Paris, and Brussels! Have fun!

      I want to switch to secondary. Hopefully, I’ll study for the test over the summer, so I can take it, and make the change the following school year. I really am more of a secondary teacher personalitywise. Most people are shocked when they find out I teach elementary. There’s nothing sweet and bubbly about me. I’m going to Austria and Croatia and we leave June 20th. Your trip sounds wonderful! I hope you have a fun and safe trip as well.

  2. Oh that Ebay thing would drive me nuts. People are such jerks lol. Sorry that happened… and yay for the school year almost being done. Can’t believe how fast summer is coming…

    American Gods I’m not really familiar with, but that guy in the preview is Lincoln from the 100, I know that much. lol

      Yeah, I’m going to relist the phone this week. Hopefully, I’ll get a legit buyer this time around. I’m so excited for summer! It’s so close I can almost taste it. American Gods was pretty good last night. If you haven’t read the book, you should definitely check it out. So far it’s my favorite Neil Gaiman book.

      I just finished Ride Hard yesterday. It was good! I plan to read Ride Rough today. Have you read her Hard Ink series? You don’t have to in order to enjoy this series, but it’s worth checking out. Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful week!

  3. Ugh sorry to hear about the ebay scammer. Congrats on switching to 4th grade next school year! Yes, I think having been a 5th-grade teacher already you’ll do great. My son is in 5th grade 🙂 OMG I wish I could go to Europe. I’m so jealous but happy for you 🙂

      I’m excited to try something new. 4th grade should be fun. Thanks for your well wishes. It’s been years since I’ve been to Europe. You must be excited for your son to head to middle school.
