How was everyone's day?

I went to the dermatologist today and found out I've developed a severe allergy to scents. So, I'll be up all night rewashing literally all of my clothes, blankets, sheets, etc with new soap. At least I know why I haven't been able to breathe and I've been itchy as heck for a year, so that's good right?

Anyway, I'm glad to have littens and hobbits to keep me company while I do a billion loads of laundry. ❤

xicanti Boo allergies. 😔 2d
Rachel.Rencher @xicanti Right? I'm allergic to like everything but food, so thankful for that at least 😂 2d
Judybskt Yikes!! 2d
Buechersuechtling Well. Okay. Knowing where all your suffering and problems come from is a good thing … but …this sounds like it makes everyday life complicated. At least before having gotten used to the new routines … I hope that everything improves for you and stays manageable. 🤗 1d
Rachel.Rencher @Buechersuechtling Thanks, friend! I'm just glad to be moving in right direction 😊 19h

I'm so excited to read another Backman. ❤

The clock is the background was a present to my grandma when she married my grandpa in 1963. I inherited it when she died a little over 3 years ago. I know this book is going going to tug at my heartstrings bc my grandma was the best storyteller. She would tell me about her rendezvous with a count, trips to Mexico, growing up in the roaring 20s, etc. I miss her every day. ❤❤

Hey, friends! Is anyone else doing NaNoWriMo next month? I tried it last year, aaand I bailed on my project on like day 3. I have a project this year that I really want to see through. I'm wondering, how do you hold yourself accountable for the word goals? How does one even prep something like this?

Also, does anyone want to be buddies on the website? 🤓

Mehso-so

This book started off really strongly as a cute romance set at a Renaissance Faire. I loved the descriptions of the taverns and costumes, but I honestly got annoyed with the back and forth between Mitch and Simon. I know this is DeLuca's debut, but I definitely missed the tension and fast-paced scenes that you normally get from a story like this. It dragged quite a bit and could've been 50 to 100 pages shorter.

I went a little extra with the fake plants, but I can't keep anything alive (ironic since this book is full of gardening tips). I don't know why, but something is stopping me from giving this book a "pick". It was cute, but a lot of the plot felt contrived. The protag, Lili, almost broke the 4th wall a couple times when she said things like, "How perfect that the situation worked out like this!" over and over. Other than that, it was charming.

My box of romcoms got here, and a random box of chocolates from my grandparents-in-law. It's like they knew today was going to be an insanely rough day.

So in addition to my earlier post, I was also passed up for the head teacher job that I posted about a few weeks ago because they wanted someone with more experience (even though the boss told me to apply 🤦🏼‍♀️).

Anyway, it's a wine and romcom kinda night. Cheers. 🍷❤

Omg, I could go on such a rant right now about public school, but instead I'm just going to spend my prep period reading a new book because I need to unwind.
Basically, my VP just told me that I'm a glorified babysitter and to exempt kids if they say they don't want to do work. This is after I came to her bc a kid freaked out because I gave the class a worksheet that he didn't want to do. I'm not getting my Masters to babysit teenagers. 🤦🏼‍♀️

ljuliel Not my business because my kids have been out of school for a LONG TIME , but I liked how they taught when I was in school . They were tougher on the kids. You did your work or got an F . You NEVER disrespected an adult . I think it would have been better to be a teacher in the 60s. They spoke softly but carried a big stick. ( honestly, 2 of my teachers carried sticks and would PROD you in the hallway if you stopped to talk between classes. (edited) 2w
Sace I kind of need this conversation today. I've been wrestling with a colleague about this this week. He's proud his class is easy yet is convinced the students are mastering standards. Yet they are not ready when they get to the next teacher. I think a true education is challenging. 2w
Sace At the same time I recognize that minority children did not benefit back in the "good old days" (trust me, I wish there was more personal responsibility too.) I wish I could find a balance in my own personal philosophy. Clearly 25 years in education mean nothing. And as a Spanish teacher in the deep south I'm pretty sure I'm considered a babysitter. ? 2w

Rachel.Rencher @ljuliel I need a happy medium between those days and today. I have many students who think it's okay to walk all over me, and they act like smug little bastards when they come back from administration unscathed. Even when I was in HS less than ten years ago, if I had refused to do my homework and started a riot in class I would have been suspended. 2w
Rachel.Rencher @RestlessFickleBookHoarder This is something that I see everywhere at my school. I got lesson plans from another teacher because I took over this class last minute, and the other teacher would STILL be doing ice breakers and there are a lot of "movies as curriculum". I had a student yell at me because I hadn't given them a coloring assignment yet and they saw posters in the hall from the other class. I'm just so amazed at how this is acceptable 2w
ljuliel According to what my grandson tells me, there are no consequences. Doing your schoolwork is optional. They let it slide and pass the kids whether they do the work or they don‘t. Where‘s the incentive or rules for kids who really need an extra push or extra help ? Kids did not disrespect teachers in our day. They still gave whacks for misbehavior. I‘m sure that‘s not a very popular opinion in today‘s world, but it worked for us. 2w
ravenlee Honestly, this is part of why I honeschool my daughter. I don‘t want her around that kind of environment. 2w
ljuliel @RestlessFickleBookHoarder I can‘t really comment with any information on that situation. I grew up in a backwater where we had 100% white kids. Sadly, they probably wouldn‘t have fared too well here because of that. I‘m also from the North, so don‘t know what schools are like down south. I commend anyone who is a teacher. It takes the patience of a saint , and sadly, so many teachers today sound less than happy with the “ rules” in their schools 2w
Sace And I honestly understand every point of view represented here. Trust me I am just as frustrated by smug bastards (had about 70 of them last year) and lack of consequences. But I also have a lot of students where private school and homeschooling is not an option and my heart aches that they have to deal with ridiculous educational policy and disruptive classmates and I am at a MAGNET high school. 2w
Sace Education is supposed to be a great equalizer but an equal education is not available to all and I'm starting to feel like I've wasted 25 years of my life /melodramatic wailing 😩 2w
Sace Ugh *are not an option 🙄 2w
GingerAntics I feel like a glorified babysitter half the time, too. The other half I feel like a slave driver for busy work that we all know is pointless. 🙄 I feel like either way, I‘m spoon feeding 17 year olds mashed up carrots. 2w
SleepyDragon I see threads like this and my heart sinks. My sister is a teacher and has been hospitalized twice for breakdowns. She worked hard to go back to school to be a teacher and now hates it. She's at a school where the principal actively plots against her, and parents call her racist instead of dealing with their children's behavioral issues. She wants to leave but is scared of starting over in another district. Cont. 2w
SleepyDragon It breaks my heart bc the district my kids are in isn't nearly as bad as hers or as ehat you guys are describing. The principals my son has had so far back the teachers for the most part. He's in jr high now and so far personal responsibility has always been stressed. They have incredible intervention programs so kids don't get left behind. The jr high seems incredibly strict avout doing the work. Only thing is they pay the teachers squat here. 2w
SleepyDragon Ignore typos, please. 2w
jmtrivera I'm so sorry. It's hard to be a dedicated teacher with so little support. Take the You Time. You deserve it. 💜 2w
Rachel.Rencher @ravenlee I so don't blame you. That's awesome that you're doing that for your kiddo ❤❤ 2w
Rachel.Rencher @GingerAntics Yes! Omg I literally had a kid smash playdoh into his freaking test and then got mad when I told him to redo it because I couldn't read his answers. Like I'm sorry, what the hell is going on?! 2w
Rachel.Rencher @SleepyDragon I'm so glad your kiddos have a good environment. ❤ The district I grew up in was like that, but I moved to a bigger city for more job opportunities and clearly the quality is lacking here. 2w
Rachel.Rencher @jmtrivera Thank you ❤❤❤ 2w

I didn't fully realize that this book was going to be a about a widow when I grabbed it today, but ugh. 😭 I couldn't do life without my husband. This story is all about moving on in a healthy way, but I'd be like the girl in P.S. I Love You, except I'd never get out of bed.

Holy sh!t... I thought I would just casually read this while I was sipping on my coffee this morning seeing as it's only 16 pages. I was NOT prepared for that magnitude of insanity, and my mind is blown. If you haven't read this, I definitely recommend it. This is something that I'll think about a lot and probably teach in my future literature classes.

BarbaraBB Great review and yes, only 16 pages but packed with all the feelings! 2w

Laughing at myself because I ordered what I *thought* was a novel on Amazon for $1, and then I get the skinniest book I've ever seen. Someone published a 15 page short story on its own. 🤣 This is supposed to be a short story, right? Like it's not just a weird misprint, chapter preview thing?

I'm about 1/4 of the way through this book, and I am so hooked. I don't want to spoil anything, but this is everything I was hoping it would be. 💚

Okay this is going to be a rant, but these past few weeks has me ready to move to China and be an ESL teacher. Omg, it's been a day, guys. So I work every other day at this high school, and I was told I needed brand new material in my lesson plans for the next 2 weeks. I was like no big deal, just put me on the schedule for Friday and I'll work from home since someone uses my room on days when I'm not there...(cont. in the comments)...

Rachel.Rencher But I got a call from my principal this AM and he was upset that I wanted an extra day to learn & prep 2 full weeks of brand-new material before I present it. He said my hour long prep on Monday should be enough and took me off the schedule. So now I'm in a position where I'm like do I work for free, or do I scramble on Monday morning to get everything done and just take it day by day? I'm not gonna lie, I'm feeling so under appreciated by... 2mo
Rachel.Rencher Admins and students, and I have a few friends who have gone overseas to teach. One was supposed to be gone for a year and now she's been gone 7. I'm legit cleaning up my resume and looking at expat ESL jobs. Someone tell me I'm not crazy and give me tips on teaching elsewhere, because I thought it would get better once I had my own class, but nope. 😅 2mo
Rachel.Rencher Anyway, I'm gonna say screw it for now and kick my feet up and read because I'm hella frustrated. 2mo

It's not even 5 yet, but I just dropped my MIL off to go home and I need a nap. She is single handedly the most exhausting person I've ever been around and she thought it would be fun to just "pop in" on us during our first week back to teaching and second week back to school. So, we just had to drop everything and entertain her for three days.

So yeah. I'm going to read some more of this book, spray some lavender on my pillow and check out. ?

This is the first time I've ever made an Amazon order while drunk, and it was surprisingly practical. 😂 I was a little surprised when I got an email the other day saying all these books had shipped, but I got everything for my class book club, a couple that have interested me for a while, and I vaguely remember adding Nickel Boys to the cart after seeing it on Obama's list.
Anyway, I always love bookmail.😂

Has this ever happened to any of you?

Buechersuechtling Nope. Sorry, in that respect I can‘t be helpful. I didn‘t even make stupid phone calls or so while being drunk – at least not in my adult life – maybe once as a teenager. If you ask me I only get affectionate when being drunk. 🤭 2mo

What in the sam hell was this steaming pile of bull shittery? I'm sorry, but women trapping one another in abusive situations is not a storyline I can "abide". The plot holes in this story were ridiculous and the graphic depictions of abuse followed by everyone scheming to con one another made me want to chuck this thing at the wall.

Just sat through my first lecture of grad school! I've been going through syllabi and doing intro posts all morning, so now it's time to burn off some nervous energy. 😬

Btw, I'm in love with this book. Admittedly, it's a bit steamier and NSFW than I expected, buuuut that paired with Stella's quirks and Michael's sensitivity is making this a 5 star read for me. 😉

GingerAntics You actually have lectures? What are you studying? 2mo
Rachel.Rencher @GingerAntics Yep! One class has them every Monday, my other classes are recorded and I watch them whenever. I'm getting my Masters in Education. 2mo

I like how the plagiarism section in each syllabus is exactly the same. It's almost like it was copied and pasted there.

But seriously, the fact that grad school starts tomorrow may be a contributing factor to the reading slump. I started getting organized for tomorrow and of course I'm already overwhelming myself. Here's the most expensive book haul of all time, plus my brain food for the next 5 months. (Kidding, sort of). Wish me luck. 😬📚

Lovesbooks87 Good luck! You got this!😀 2mo
GingerAntics I‘m pretty sure it is. Each institution has a uniform policy and all the professors have to follow it, so they can just copy and paste. Usually the syllabus changes dates and maybe a few books occasionally between times each class is offered, so often teachers use the same syllabus from year to year (or cycle to cycle with grad school). By the way, YOU GOT THIS!!! 🎉 🥳 🎉 2mo

What do you guys do when you're in a book slump? Idk what it is, but I just can't read more than a chapter or so without getting bored lately. I bailed on a book I've been trying to read for months, and the 2 I have going right now just aren't holding my attention, even though they're good books.

I keep seeing the amount of books I have to read each week to meet my GR goal and I'm nervous I won't meet it again. 😅📚

Texreader I hate slumps! It‘s odd but comforting to know it happens to other avid readers. I‘ve put down many a book because of slumps and then never get back to them because of the bad connotations even though the books don‘t deserve that reputation! May be better to try to wait it out... 2mo
aprilpohren I have this sometimes and it's horrible. I just keep going through my piles, trying different books and eventually one will finally grab ahold of me. It can be especially difficult being a mood reader, which I am. 😊 2mo
Megabooks Slumps suck! Sometimes switching to an unusual genre for me or from fiction to nonfiction or vice versa helps! Audiocrafting/coloring/cooking maybe?? I‘m sorry!! 2mo
See All 25 Comments
Buechersuechtling I pretty much second what the previous comments say. For me it‘s a combination of just trying, of switching genres, and lately due to my long enough car rides audiobooks. I like where @Texreader puts her finger because now I finally have an explanation why I sometimes am so reluctant towards certain books. 2mo
Soscha If you really, really want to meet that number try a few picture books. Go to the library & look into some Caldecott winners. Don‘t think of it as cheating because the creativity and grace of the best picture books have the power to reignite your love for reading. I have been there. 2mo
BarbaraBB I‘d get rid of the Goodreads goal, it shouldn‘t be a threat. It‘s nothing! And then I‘d try for some pageturner (thriller or chicklit). You‘ve read so much, maybe it‘s just okay to read a bit less for a while? 😘💕 2mo
charl08 Sometime I try a reread of a much loved book in this situation, or as others say, a quick read: a book of poetry, a graphic novel, or a novella. 2mo
Smrloomis I usually read something lighter like others have suggested although sometimes I just listen instead. I‘m with @BarbaraBB ; I feel free to edit my goal as the year progresses or delete it altogether so I don‘t feel stressed. Just my two cents! 2mo
megnews I second @charl08 When I‘m in a slump, I try quick reads like a novella, graphic novel, or poetry. Also, middle grade or young adult fiction. They‘re usually shorter and faster paced. Quick reads leave you feeling accomplished and help get out of the slump. 2mo
TheLudicReader I go for something I know will be quick, a psychological thriller or mystery, or something by an author I like. Or a re-read. Slumps suck. 2mo
avgeyer I usually opt for a thriller or mystery, something that I won't want to put down! 2mo
MamaGina I just don‘t try to force it, I take s break from reading and entertain myself instead watching movies, binging tv series, listening to podcasts. It doesn‘t last that long, especially if some of those movies, tv shows and podcasts are based on books. Last time I had it happen I binged the CB Strike tv series then read Lethal White and the slump was over 🤓 2mo
AlaMich Perhaps setting aside the goal for now might help? If you don‘t meet the goal, what happens? Nothing! You can always set another goal for yourself, and it‘s not worth ruining your enjoyment of reading. 😊 2mo
Rachel.Rencher @Texreader Same! I try to give them a second chance, and one of my favorite books was actually a book I'd put down during a slump. Thanks. ❤ 2mo
Rachel.Rencher @aprilpohren I am suuuch a mood reader! That's why series intimidate me because I never know if I'm going to want to pick up the next book. I have so many unfinished series. 😬 2mo
Rachel.Rencher @Megabooks Maybe I'm doing myself in because I've been pairing a nonfiction and fiction together. If I listen to an audiobook, my mind wanders and I have to rewind. Maybe I should add in a 3rd, unusual book. 😂 2mo
Rachel.Rencher @Buechersuechtling Right! Me, too. I hadn't really thought about why I was so reluctant toward some other than I "just didn't like it". I now have a short list of a few that I'll have to try again. 2mo
Rachel.Rencher @Soscha That's such a good idea. I just spent the summer reading picture books & easy readers to my classes of littles, and I didn't count any of them toward my goal. It did help reinforce my love of reading to see how much they enjoyed the stories. ❤ 2mo
Rachel.Rencher @BarbaraBB I'm master at comparing myself to others, but you're right. I just shaved 20 books off the goal, and now I'm going to let it go for a bit. I sometimes forget the real reason that I read is for the enrichment of it, not the competition. ❤📚 2mo
Rachel.Rencher @charl08 As soon as I read your comment, a few titles came to mind. I'm going to go pick those up. ❤ 2mo
Rachel.Rencher @Smrloomis I agree! I just shaved 20 books off the goal, and I'm going to try to let it go and be okay with it if I don't even get to the new number. 2mo
Rachel.Rencher @megnews that's a good idea. I love YA stories, so I think I'm going to try one of those. 2mo
Rachel.Rencher @TheLudicReader Slumps do suck. Glad to know we're in it together. 😉 2mo
Rachel.Rencher @MamaGina I just binged 2 true crime docs on HBO! Its funny you say that, because I'm on my 2nd true crime book in the last couple weeks. Maybe that'll help. 😁 2mo
Rachel.Rencher @AlaMich Yess, I just have to remember that it's for fun and not the competition. I deleted GR before for that very reason. I'm a bit too hard on myself. 😂 2mo

This book is so interesting. There's a lot that I never knew about the beginning of oil drilling, forced assimilation of Native Americans, Oklahoma, etc. I'm only about halfway through, but it's hard to put down.
