and last year I totally bombed NaBloPoMo, with a total of 8 out of 30 posts actually published. It was my worst NaBloPoMo ever. Plus, BlogHer has given up on NaBloPoMo, so no official group is getting together to write daily in November. If you are writing for NaBloPoMo on your own, leave a comment and I’ll visit your blog and give you some comment love!
I am always up for a challenge, however, so here we go again! Let’s see how I do for NaBloPoMo 2018.
Speaking of challenges, I’m also attempting another November challenge that I’m not sure I’ll be able to finish. At the urging of the managers at my gym, I’m going to attempt to walk 10,000 steps a day for the whole month. I am really going to have to focus on this challenge to get it done! I rarely walk 10,000 steps a day, so here goes nothing.
In other news, I am no longer a preschool teacher. Yes, after 8 years of doing something that I completely loved, I switched jobs. I want to get back into elementary school teaching, and a good way to do that is to substitute teach. So now I’m a “guest teacher” in a suburb next to mine. So far, it has been going really well, even though substitute teaching is outside my comfort zone! But going from school to school has been easier than I thought, especially because all the school secretaries are amazing! They are so friendly and helpful that my school year has been off to a great start!
I have a half-day job this afternoon, in a 4th grade classroom. Perfect for the day after Halloween!
In order to get these 30 posts written this November, my goal is to not obsess about my writing, so I’m writing this quickly and then hitting “Publish.” And that’s how it’s going to be!
