A blog from a thirty-something year old broke teacher trying to figure out why her fridge doesn't have food in it and why her life isn't fabulous like the Kardashian girls.

Longtime Lurker, First Time Blogger
I am an avid follower of several blogs and I attempted to set up my own blog last year. That lasted about a week. I recently noticed how long I was spending reading my favorite blogs and thought I have gotta try this again. Hopefully, this time it will stick. They say it takes 12 times for something to become a habit, if I can get past 12 posts then I will addicted to writing for my blog. What will I write about....being a teacher, coping with post-college life, being single, trying to climb out of debt, saving money, having psoriasis, the world of pop culture and the fact that the life I am living does not seem as cool as the girls on The Hills.
This is a place where I can rant about my life as a third grade teacher who continues to try to get her act together years after graduating college.
It is hard to find teaching blogs where the writer is not all rainbows and unicorns. Teaching is hard work and at times the kids are not fun and you don't feel like anything inspiring is happening in the classroom. It isn't that I don't love teaching, I can't imagine not doing it but I can't handle blogs where the writer never writes about the frustrations of teaching...or of the small paychecks that one receives on a monthly basis.
