Glitter (v.) to add sparkle, excitement, and vitality to that which is dull and unimaginative

Jot (v.) to quickly pen a line before the thought flits away, perhaps never to be recaptured


Living the Lime Life

Actually, I'm simply saying, "Stay posted!"  After zealously stalking Pinterest and Instagram, I took the DIY plunge for making a teacher's bullet journal planner.  Yes, I have tasted the koolaid and spent a small sum of money on gorgeous Erin Condren planners.   Yes, I would graciously accept the donation of a new EC planner (and use it for the short term).  Yet I always feel a slight sense of dismay, frustration, just doesn't magically encompass every aspect of my teaching life.  As a high school English teacher who has six preps,  participates in a variety of committees, and advises a few groups, I am ready for the epiphany of a sixteen-year career.  In the words of the ultimate crooner Frank Sinatra, "I did it my way."

First things first.  I had to ponder and fret over the perfect notebook, the just right color (it has to match my classroom!), and the dreaded page count.  I settled on the Leuchtturm1917 slim master A4 size journal in LIME (please note the picture is an A5). I nearly had a meltdown trying to find THE size in THE color, but the internet scavenger hunt finally revealed one in  - - - Oregon!  More specifically, this gem is coming from the University of Oregon's bookstore - - the Duckstore.  Go Ducks!  So my precious is currently en route.  Stay tuned for the unveiling, the creating, and the implementing of this fabulous DIY ultimate planner.
