Since school is out and I’m officially on a more relaxed schedule, I thought I would give you a preview of my summer plans. It includes two blogging conferences, among other things.
I’ll be honest and admit that I want to take some time this summer to just relax and have fun. As you are aware, the last year has been difficult (see my life changes post to understand fully) for me. So, now I just want to unwind and try to deal with things. So, I fully intend to spend several days just sitting at home. I may get online or I may just watch some tv on DVD (you would be surprised how many un-watched shows I have right now). I could also just catch up on some reading for pleasure. There are several books I keep meaning to read.
My other summer plans involve traveling. I already announced why I’m going to BlogHer this year, so you know about that. However, I’m also planning to attend Reviewer’s Retreat again this year. I went to Reviewer’s Retreat in 2012 and had a fabulous time. So, I’m very much looking forward to returning with my friends Shanaka (Mama Bee Does)and April from This Lady Blogs. We are riding down from North Carolina to the conference to room together with Kayla from Kayla Aimee. I think it will be lots of fun for us all. I’m very excited about these conferences and can’t wait to attend them.
Lastly, my summer plans surround looking for jobs. Since school is out, I’m obviously not working as a substitute teacher right now. However, I am still stalking the counties’ websites and applying like crazy. Many are just now beginning to post jobs though. So, I’m hoping to finally (finally) land my first full time teaching position. So, I may have a couple of job interviews to go to this summer as well. I guess time will tell though.
So, now you know my summer plans and how I plan to spend my time. What are your summer plans? Are you going to be traveling any? If you are attending either of those conferences, let me know in the comments so we can meet up.
