Hi! Thanks for
falling in love with me checking out my blog.
I am Renée A. Schuls-Jacobson.
The girl with the ridiculously long name.
I know. It is a mouthful, and no one ever calls me all of that, so you can just call me Renée. Or Nay. Or if you want to get all fancy and French, you can call me Née. Please just don’t oui-oui on my rug.
So now you know I’m not super funny the way some bloggers are. But I can tell you are digging me and you’d like to take our cyber friendship to the next level.
You clicked the ABOUT button, so you probably want to know more about me.
And I’m so glad you asked!
When my son was a wee thing, I started my own business as a professional organizer. In helping people to organize their external messes, I witnessed the strong (and often irrational) connection people sometimes have to certain physical possessions.
My wee son is now a teenager who goes by TechSupport on this blog. Our day to day has gotten kind of rush-rush. I schlep Tech to his activities and scribble ideas for future essays on napkins scraps and bits of paper. For later.
You should see the pile I’ve got going in here.
A perfectionist by nature, I still like everything in its place.
I am learning to find beauty in the chaos.
When this blog was born in 2010, it was called Teachers & Twits.
But I didn’t always feel free to write about any topic. I often felt more than a little trapped by the “brand” I’d created for myself.
Meanwhile Google kept sending me folks looking for “tips on how to spank my naughty students” & “hot teachers in bad girl costumes.”
I felt like I was letting them down. (Not really. Sorry pervs.)
In September 2012, I started to write under my own ridiculously long, super sloppy name.
Because it’s true.
Life doesn’t always fit in a file folder.
