I’m not sure how, but I managed to… break my blog entirely? Everything decided it didn’t want to work, I lost all of my posts (kind of — I managed to get some from an archive and am now re-posting them here because I think it’s good to keep them around). But yeah, I broke things.

Anyway, it was a good excuse to have a fresh start! Even if it’s a slightly frustrating one. 

I have a few projects that I wanted to start on that include:

  • Working on a novel with the tentative title The Devil Used to Work for Prada (okay, not really), but it’ll be based in the lived reality of my past two years of experience working for one of the most corrupt “educational” institutions that I’ve ever had the displeasure to exist at.
  • If possible, maybe working on a stage play about some of those experiences (particularly the more interesting and adorable ones with the students).
  • Maybe a stand-up comedy routine that I’ll be too shy to ever do but would be cathartic nonetheless.
  • My International School Chronicle, which will be a section that catalogues some of the more frustrating experiences, including some truly awful moments.

I’m also moving! So even with all the projects that I want to work on, I’m going to be super slow between moving, general planning and preparation for my classes at the new school, reading so many books, and maybe doing professional development all at the same time.

Summers are amazing. Maybe one day I’ll actually have a real one.

It’s a new adventure, but I’m really excited!
