This first post is making me a bit nervous because I feel like I’m trying to sum up the future without knowing anything about what’s going to happen! An impossible task that certainly will not be accomplished through a blog post. I suppose I should stop worrying.
Anyways, I will lay out my planned post schedule and tell you a bit about myself and what I hope to get out of this blog as a structure to start with.
Who Am I?
I’m Maddie. As the description bar states, I am a twentysomething living in Chicago and trying my hand at figuring out how to keep myself happy and entertained in a place where it is currently -6 degrees and I know very few people. I’m a daycare teacher studying to be an elementary school teacher and I spend lots of time reading books, sitting under my heated blanket wishing it was warmer, trying to make the spaces I occupy beautiful and efficient, and doing craft projects both by myself and with the students at work.
I plan to post on a regular schedule so that I and everyone else can keep track of what is going on. I do best on schedules. Schedules are my very good friends.
Monday: Lifestyle (What am I up to? What am I doing? Why?)
Tuesday: Beauty Post (I am attracted to the ue/eau semi-alliteration in Tuesday and Beauty, FYI)
Wednesday: Weekly Project (again with the alliteration, obviously)
Friday: Student Craft Roundup (projects I did with the elementary school kids during the week at work)
Saturday: Organization Day (tidy up after the squalor of the work week)
Why is this suddenly structured like a five-paragraph English essay? I don’t know. Onward!
