April Currently

I'm baaaack! I had to dust the cobwebs off my dashboard, folks! Sometimes school and personal life can be pure chaos as y'all well know. There's a hundred things I feel I need to get accomplished. I'm determined to get back into the blogging world and catch up on what I missed. 
To get back into the swing of things, I'm linking up with Farley for April Currently. Here we go...
Listening- My annoying neighbor has decided now is a perfect time to BLAST music. I'm seriously tempted to call and make a noise complaint. As the Southern expression goes, some people just weren't raised right. It doesn't help that she comes across as a witchy, cold personality. Bleh.
Loving- Today I got back from my first trip to NYC! I had such an amazing time even if the weather wasn't quite warm enough for me. I'll definitely visit again. The food, shopping, sights, fast pace, and interesting people made for a great trip. 
The Empire State Building is a must do! Even if it's a cold day, you can't get an experience or views like this anywhere else. 
My inner child couldn't resist playing the big piano at FAO Schwartz.
My advice for any first time NYC visitors? Carry a brush and hand sanitizer! 

The frozen hot chocolate at Serendipity 3 can't be missed! 

Thinking- Yes I need to eat dinner, but I also need to finish a blog post from last month. I need to finish my Liebster Award post. I am normally not this behind, but as I said earlier it's been busy busy busy. 
Wanting- I finally braved the light rain and got my suitcase out of the car. Thankfully my team plans together, so I just need to type science plans and save. Too bad I don't have a magic wand that will do everything for me.
Needing- It's the time of year when all teachers feel like there's not enough sleep to catch up on. Can I get an amen??
Hours and Last Day- Contract hours for teachers are from 7:30 to 3:30. Pshh those hours don't do a thing. My goal is to get to school everyday by 7:15 so I can do minor housekeeping things. My goal is to leave everday by 4:40 so I make it to Crossfit on time; sometimes this works out sometimes it doesn't. 
Our last school day with students is now June 6th. Thanks to the crazy winter we've had we'll be using all bad weather makeup days this year.
