It’s time to get this show on the road, my friends and fellow educators!
Weeelllll, maybe not yet exactly, but I’ve always suffered from (been blessed to find myself with?) excitement over subsequent semesters. I’ll return to working at the middle/end of January, but I’ve been thinking about what changes to make in my classroom (“courses,” Shoujo, come on, higher ed now, remember?) since like… November? Maybe it’s part of the ADHD, but I just get so enthusiastic about trying new ways to reach my students and teach them what they need.
I’ve started writing an FAQ, and I’m working on my policies/assignments/syllabus. (How GREAT is it to have more than like 2 days to prep this time around?! It’s amazing!) After teaching PreK for a few years, I had grown confident in my curriculum/lesson building abilities, and I’m sure I’ll get there in ESL eventually, but I’m…

Anyway, I am now 3 years post-injury and going through my 103 unpublished drafts. ❤ I was … Continue reading So Far I’ve Come, and Gratefully — a reflection 1.5 years post-injury
Author's Note: This post is from *checks notes* 2017. I never published it assumedly because there were categories I never finished writing for, and at this point I can no longer do so because 2016/2017 was so long ago! I also probably intended to write my "whys" behind some of the winners that I named, … Continue reading Ridiculously Random Anime Awards, 2016-17
Author's Note: This short post from the backlog was written in 2017 when WordPress used to provide single word prompts for bloggers to fill. Do they still do that? I don't think so? And in twilight, it almost felt like she could count the innumerable, white-lit pinpricks in the uppermost western sky. It almost felt … Continue reading Gingerly: In Response to the WordPress Prompt
You've probably never looked at a title and wondered, "Is this shojo?" and let's be honest; you'll also probably never need to ask. The hallmarks of shojo are usually pretty obvious on sight, but at some point I began wondering if anyone ever bothered to make a master list of the tells, tropes, and subtropes. … Continue reading Shoujo’s Shojo “Tells & Tropes” Master List ❤
