Hey There!

     I am in my final year of study at the University of Wisconsin and I am a little overwhelmed. I love school, I enjoy learning and I believe that I can teach. My struggle is with management of time and resources to get the best possible outcome. 
     Right now I am struggling and with an inclusive scholarship opportunity that covers my expenses and a full time job, I may need to step out of one realm to make the other a priority and i struggle with my responsibility to my children and their right to adequate health care and opportunities. 
     As I reconsider my current position and doing what I can to make sure all avenues are considered I will keep WrightProp posted.

Switching of the Gears

     So, I am changing gears once again. I don't know what it is or why it happens, but I am moving this here blog in a new direction. We are going to move toward bigger and brighter things within the realm of education as a student which will serve as an educational archive of what I know, and also include my developing philosophy.
     As you may or may not know, I am in the last year of my undergraduate program for certification in elementary education through the University of Wisconsin-Oskosh. I love it, I feel like I am doing what I was suppose to do in this moment. I am where I believe I am needed the most.
    I know I am fortunate to have found a place to stand in the world, and to do something beyond myself and to teach my own children by example. I am grateful for the opportunity and I know that after this year my life will never be the same.
     I have finally had the chance to watch a part of Dr. Maya Angelou's services which were held on my birthday. Oprah is a great speaker and a powerful force on her own, I loved this segment because it's fundamental in what we all know, what we all believe, and how we feel when we know a higher power is at work in our lives. Enjoy and watch it again just to make sure you feel it.

Tiny House I Want!

I saw the tiny house blog in 2011 and I have enjoyed the articles ever since they posted a dream home on a house boat that stole my heart. I have been mulling over my personal need to store, and buy in bulk, and make the most of my purchases through our local Bountiful Basket organization. 

Take a few minutes to read the OTIS article and tell you aren't attracted to the idea of minimalist living and saving a few thousand dollars a year. The building they created is amazing!

I would love a garden shed or even a small house this size for my children to do their homework, for me to sew from, or even my kids' father to spend time with them at and explore our home and help with their ongoing projects. 

Mobility and low maintenance living are gifts I hope to instill and give my own children. My research and tracking articles like this are keys and building blocks for me to foster that strength within each of them.
