It’s ridiculous trying to write a semi fashion themed blog when there is never anyone around to help me take photos. I fail at this. The majority of my clothes are now en route to Brooklyn inside a crate. So I’ve been sticking to t-shirts and 2 pairs of jeans for these 3 weeks till we get settled in our new place.
It’s the first day of summer vacation! Yesterday I cleaned out my classroom, said my good byes and left TMAHS for the second time in my life (first time was as a high school graduate). I almost don’t know what to do with myself now that I instantly have all this free time. B is also out of town for the weekend getting smart at some superhero conference thing. So I went shopping after leaving school yesterday. Madewell was having an extra 20% off sale items, so of course I ended up leaving the store with a few things. I had to buy this lace t-shirt because I figured it would be perfect for my dinner date with Marisa and Matt later that night at the Salt House. It would have worked better with a black tank underneath, but all I have with me now is white. Oh well.
This past week I’ve also broken my long standing ban against adding students as facebook friends. I now have something like 30 new friends and my newsfeed is cluttered with screenshots of students chatting on ooVoo. I’m having mixed feelings about this. I want to keep in touch with students and I’m invested in their future, but at the expense of my own privacy (hi kids!!). Then again, I keep an open, publicly viewable blog. So what kind of privacy should I be expecting? All of a sudden I’m gripped with fear that my social life is being judged by my students.
