Until someone can convince me otherwise, I've decided to return back to this domain and blog. I like the title and tagline better. Let's see, what else...
I've written over two hundred blog posts on this one and about 20 on the other. If I'm looking at this from an archival or even transformative perspective, I guess this is the place to me.
Much has changed since I began blogging in 2006, and for me to try and play catch up now would be ridiculous. So I'll just start from here, the now, and fill in gaps as they come.
This will mostly serve as a space for me to publicly vomit my thoughts I find most worthy for the public. It will include thoughts about teaching and motherhood, but my goal is to use this space to rekindle (that word makes me giggle) my creative writing. So you might see the occasional poem (*gasp* Jason, don't get your hopes up), or just reflective type thoughts that may lead to some more creative outlet.
This is a big leap for me. I'm extremely self-conscious about my writing. Especially since I'm surrounded by really great writers. I used to be a good writer. But I fell out of it (creatively and professionally) pretty hard when I got deep into teaching. When you're grading and planning lessons, there just isn't time for that shit. And now I'm a mom, which is the ultimate "cock block" of creative writing. Oh yeah, I'll probably swear. And be inappropriate. So, that's you're warning.
Welcome back, me!
