Well, it seems as though I gave up on my ladylike quest once I stopped getting unemployment money on that snowy mountain debit card. I've got a job now, so apparently I can remain uncouth and immature . . . But really, let's face it, I didn't have much going on last year at this time.
Even though I'm now up to my eyeballs with essays to grade, creative side projects, and a mountain of housework, I've decided to NOT give up on this blog. Looking back at my previous posts, they create an interesting snapshot of life one year ago...
I was quite broke, feeling quite alone, and spending too much time watching television. Now, I still watch way too much boob-tube, but I can pay my bills - and more importantly - I feel much more comfortable in my own skin. I'm not any more or any less "alone" than before, but now I'm at a point where being alone doesn't feel lonely. And that feels pretty good.
So, I'll do my best to get back on track with my entries. Perhaps I'll post a short story or two. Maybe you'll even be lucky enough to get a taste of my junior high poetry (why yes, I did find my old journals in my parents' garage recently)!
