Hi, I'm Asher Barkley.

Yes, I'm this cute!

So I’ve a new family member. He’s a two month old cute, cuddly, razor-sharp toothed rolly-polly black labrador mix.

I got him yesterday and named him: Asher Barkley. Barkley was my boyfriend’s contribution. I figure he’ll grow into having a double name and besides, I’ll need something formal to call out when he’s up to no good.

I’ll add a photo soon as I can’t get the phone app to upload it.


Today’s my first official day back at the office after handing in my notice. It’s quiet. Too quiet. It’s also raining out…

I decided to tell some of my students that I would be leaving. It’s harder then I thought – especially when they ask, “why?” and I just want to reply: it’s better for me.

Two have been gracious enough to congratulate me and wish me well. I’m impressed to note their maturity: they were (my) children just yesterday it seems. I’m hoping the rest of my goodbyes will go as well.

I’ve spent the rest of the morning filing and clearing out my desk. I left only the few things I thought to be useful for whomever takes my place. I know, how considerate…

My birthday (and last day at this job) is less then 2 weeks away! I can hardly believe it! *wiggles*

I guess it will take me a bit longer then I anticipated to get back into writing out my thoughts. ┬áThe last few months I’ve been so… quiet.

So time continues to roll on… Just over 3 years later I am finally ready say goodbye to my employer. I gave my two weeks notice in today; it was bitter sweet.

I’m excited with a hint of anxiousness. That’s normal though – a first time for everything (re: being normal).

That said, I read August is “Happiness Happens Month,” and I am certainly happy about the new prospects ahead. It’s also my birthday month, that alone equates to happiness in my books.

I’ve found an app for my phone to blog with, so perhaps I can make time for these random musings.

Til then… be well.
