I hardly ever wear heels because I can’t walk in them and I always get blisters. I love them, though, and I’m trying to wear them more often. I wore them yesterday and could only make it to lunch before I needed to change into a pair of flats that I brought because I knew my feet would be killing me. I also wore my flats in the morning to walk from the parking lot to my classroom all the way to the other end of school.
Etsy is awesome for having things that you never thought you needed until you see all of the innovative designs. I found some novel heels (get it? yeah, that just happened lol) and my favorites are below.

I was searching for something else, and came across these adorable calculators at Ali Express. As an English teacher, I never think about using a calculator until grading time comes around. Then I realize if I can’t count it on my fingers and toes, I’m not going to be able to add up all the different sections on the test AND calculate the percentage grade.
Um, more owl love. What can I say?
The site has at least a dozen Hello Kitty design calculator
Foldable, bendable calculators in bright colors

Modern and basic.
I decided to dedicate an entire post to my love of owls. Owls are pretty popular lately and there are so many modern, colorful depictions of owls on clothing and jewelry. I’ve found some cute, affordable owl adorned supplies for the classroom as well.
