making some changes...


Where have I been? I haven't been posting much in the past few weeks because I've been debating whether or not to continue with this blog. I began this blog as a practice for my writing, a way to stream my random thoughts, but also to learn how to get comfortable with strangers reading about my life, since that is what I write about. It took a bit getting used to at first but now I feel like I'm right back where I started, sort of. I've learned to accept criticism and the fact that not everyone will like me and I've learned to accept how vulnerable my writing makes me feel. Lately though, I guess I've been craving some privacy. What did we all do before cell phones, facebook, twitter, four square, blogs, live streams, etc? I really can't remember.

Anyway, I weighed out the pros and cons of keeping this blog;

Pros: Two of my friends really love reading it.

Cons: ...

Well, I guess the cons are just that posting about my life has been causing me a bit of anxiety. And I think I want to go in a different direction. (Can I be more vague?) But this blog has been a part of me for the past few years, practically an online journal, and I'd be sad to see it go completely. So the few of you out there that are reading this, bear with me for the next few weeks while my posting will be a bit sporadic. I'm in the middle of making some changes and I hope it'll be better when I return.

Thanks for reading!

more snow

We're supposed to get more snow tonight. What do you guys think? Will we be buried again? More importantly, will I have a snow day?
