… working two jobs!
I’m finally here. I have two more days of being both a nanny and an English teacher. And boy is Friday a tough day to end on:
- 7.45 to 8.45 Nanny work
- 9.00 to 11.30 first class
- 11.30 to 13.30 second class
- 14.00 to 15.30 third class
- 17.00 to 18.45 nanny work
And then home time and chances are I’ll have a migraine.
The next few weeks, I’ll be sorting out my organization. I’ve to make time for class prep, my 2 books that I’m working on (the one you know about and the secret one), re-start my French lessons, and do all my extra hobbies: my carpet, my drawings and paintings, my zentangles etc.
I wanted to drop a line to let you know that this week is a high anticipation week for me and I may be too tired to do any blogging this weekend. And a special hello to all my new followers, thanks for joining me!
I hope your week is as exciting as mine,
I have had the Patreon blog for two years now and I think I’ve finally figured out how to use it. I will try to do a monthly review at the end of each month. On my WordPress blog, it will be a summary of the Patreon blog. I am asking you for a minimum of €1 per post. You are welcome to donate whatever you want, €5, €20 or even €50!
My priorities for the year 2018 are: Continue reading

Organization skills need to improve! I’ve been contemplating putting WordPress on my phone so that I can work on my posts when I’m not near the computer. However, at the same time, I enjoyed the break from all of the Internet ties when I go away for a few days. For the moment, the pros and cons balance each other out.
chapter 1 @ the betas
start chapter 2
Yeah, I am nowhere near finished chapter 1, every time I sit down to write, I get lost in the massive holes I have! Chapter 2 is a far distant light that is not getting any closer.

I finished Wells of Ascension! I am so delighted to have that tome of a book over with. I re-read The Eye of the World Robert Jordan. This time I highlighted any piece of writing that stood out to me, I then wrote all of these quotes out and put them into my S.B. to teach myself how to write.
We were walking through a book market and I saw something that jumped out at me, “this is about my city! And New York, but it starts off in my city.” I gushed about the book so much that my boyfriend bought it for me. Les Cendres D’Angela by Frank McCourt. I read it years ago. It was nice to have a bit of home when I was walking around a French market.
Yesterday, we bought Le Meilleur des Mondes by Aldous Huxley (A Brave New World). I have never read it before, and it is the next book on my to-read list after I finish The Great Hunt. Yes, I got hooked by The Wheel of Time. This time is different though because I am analyzing the writing throughout.
May’s reading goal: finish The Great Hunt, add quotes to S.B. and start Le Meilleur des Mondes.
there aren’t any old people in the castle. The castle itself is old, the stones on the outside and worn down compared to the stones and the insight. Those stones are grimy to touch, layers and layers of smoke from the hearth. My mother died in her 30s, a grandfather died young, so they say. I don’t understand what all days. I suppose it means I will be Queen, but that means father won’t be here I wish I could stay put and not move forward, stay in this bubble right here.
the house, the coins, the servants will all belong to me. I will get married to someone lower than me, it’s important he knows who is in charge. I will take over my father’s role as Treasury and help Yazmin rule the kingdom. I will be ruling the kingdom. She is not reading this, is she? If she is, take that part out. Better she believes she is the ruler.
No more tight clutches on the purse strings, dear father.
the only future I think of is what crops to plant for next year.
I’ll slit my own throat before I get old enough to get sick.
I’ll check under the bed first though.
