Our road trip to Kyushu began on the heels of a typhoon.
I was in the kitchen, teaching one of my students by video, when my phone began to vibrate. It was my husband, which was strange because he never calls from work unless its urgent. I let it go to message the first time, then he called again.
Apologizing to my student, I walked into the entryway and took the call.
I’ll have a cup of routine!
It’s a pity “routine” is seen as the antithesis of a “good” life in much of Western Culture. Growing up I was bombarded with quotes and slogans and messages from popular media that “life was meant to be lived as an adventure”.

I wanted to share this list of excellent posts. One of mine was shared in this list, but I am reblogging this to share the others great posts.
Happy spoopy Friday the 13th! I am officially back from my small hiatus, which means Jason did not get me! My dad has returned to excellent health and humour once again. Thank you so much for all of your words of kindness, positivity, and support. You’re really the best community. ♥
To kick-off my official return to fun blogging theatrics, I wanted to share a handful of fantastic posts from various content creators around July’s blogsphere. In the midst of all the stress and anxiety from the past week, reading your posts kept me feeling excited, inspired, and motivated to return quickly and work harder than ever. You all are so brilliant and creative, and I hope that I can share a bit of your wondrous contributions as a way to show my appreciation of all you do.
Everything will be broken up into relative categories. Please, check…
