Well, hello there! It’s been a little while… 2016 is almost over, so it feels timely to check-in. Since I last posted (at the beginning of August, oops), I’ve been pretty busy. I taught full-time at a rural school for two months. That was a good experience, but also exhausting. I was very relieved once… Continue reading End of Year Catch-up!
