It's been four months and I've failed to post on my blog, and for that, I'm sorry. I could load you down with a bunch of excuses: school, work, life, family, etc., but essentially that's all they are -- excuses. Some are more viable than others, but accountability is necessary. In the last few months I've let some things in my life slide and, unfortunately, this blog was one of them.
I won't bore you with a recap of the last four months, just let you know I'm still alive, still working on my Masters, still teaching Freshman Composition at the University, and yes, the students are still killing me! : p
As I approach my final year of school (thank goodness)! I've had to do a lot of self contemplation of what I really want to do. Do I want to go on to get my PhD and continue teaching? Do I want to move to a new state, city, town, country? At this point, as I consider the possibilities and my options it all comes down to happiness. What will make me happy?
As anyone who knows me will attest, I'm often found with a smile on my face, a ready laugh, and willingness to make others happier, but now it's time to get a bit selfish. Focus less on others and more on me. -sigh- That may be one of the most difficult things I've had to do. In every major decision I've considered others: parents, friends, family, co-workers, etc., and I was last on the list, but now it's time to be number one.
Hopefully this blog, and any comments from you (the peanut gallery), will help me in this process.
