September Currently

Honestly I can't believe it has been a whole month. It is sad that the last time I posted was for the August Currently. The good news is that I have a list of ideas to post. I'll tell more later, but for now the September Currently.
Listening:
I am watching the Outlander series on Starz. I haven't read the books, but I am so seriously hooked on this series. If you have the Starz network I highly recommend it. 
Loving:
So if you have read any of my posts from last May or over this summer, you know I moved rooms. I took this opportunity to create a new theme in my class. I went with a navy, white, and turquoise Nautical theme, with touches of coral. The result is I absolutely love it. Everyone that comes into my room says how calming and soothing it is. Can't wait to get the pictures up for you all to see too. If you want some sneak peaks head on over to my Instagram feed. 
Thinking:
Seriously I am having pangs of guilt over this. I've been in school for 3 weeks now, and well I am still feeling so overwhelmed. However, I think I can make some time soon. :)
Wanting:
Like I mentioned, I am feeling a bit behind and overwhelmed. I think part of my problem is that I am still figuring out where I want everything to be. Don't misunderstand, I am completely unpacked, it is just still trial and error as to where all my centers and whatnot will find their permanent homes. I feel like I am constantly setting up.
Needing:
I said I was still working out the best place for all of my workstations. The room has a slightly different arrangement, and it is smaller. Class has been going for 3 weeks now and the kids have been begging me for their workstation time. At the moment I am struggling with where to put my pocket chart. It used to live behind my bookshelf, but I downsized and well it doesn't work anymore. Tomorrow I am going to try placing it on the closet door.
HOWEVER, what I am really needing is this awful cold, I got last Friday (just in time to ruin the long weekend) to go away. At the moment it has dropped to my chest and is making me cough so much. :(
3 Trips:
Hawaii and New Zealand: I mean it is paradise. I want to feel the sun, learn to surf, and just generally relax on the beach.
Victoria, Canada: I've heard it is gorgeous, just want to take a peek and visit the Pacific.
Truth is the place I'd love to return to is Scotland, but couldn't choose it cause I've already been there.

With all that said, I make a promise to post more than once this month. I hope to be back soon with a tour, some tips and tricks. Hope you have a great rest of your short week!
For all of my blogger friends that just went back to work, hugs, you only have 3 more days until the weekend.
Oh! Before I forget, please go over to Farley's blog and check out the other 380+ bloggers who linked up this month. I was hoping to be number 400 but I don't think I have that much patience. 
Farley, the Linky rockstar.
