Hello?      Hello?     Hello?      Hello?

Is anybody there?

I'm still here, I promise!

Yeah, it has been a while since I've updated this blog.  Truth be told, I've focused so much of my attention to my other blog, A(nother) Year in Reviews and on the other things going on in my life (job, working out, writing) that this blog has kinda (okay, for sure) fallen to the wayside.  But I have plans to rectify that situation.  For starters, I'm adding something to the Things Keeping Me Busy list.  That list consists of:
  1. Job
  2. Working Out (I've lost 100 lb since May 2010!  I've got 40 or so more to go, so keep cheering for me.)
  3. The "other" blog
  4. Writing (NaNoWriMo is coming up!)
  5. "Time Wasters," namely games from Big Fish and on Facebook...Zynga, you make some great games but they sure do make time disappear!

So I'm going to work on reducing the amount of time I spend on #5 and replace it with a new #5, namely...

            Working on my Bachelor's degree.

Yep, I'm going back to college, specifically Walden University Online (since I don't live in Minneapolis, it kinda has to be online). I've finally figured out what I want to do with my life.  I've always been told I'd make a great teacher, and I enjoy English so why don't I finally get off my lazy duff and go back to school so I can become an English teacher which is something I've secretly wanted to do for, oh, maybe twenty years now? Plus, I feel I have a God-given directive to teach, an instruction I received when I was agonizing over whether or not I should teach Sunday School (let's just say God made it pretty clear that He wanted me to do it...if you ask nicely, I'll give you my testimony someday.)

HIPPA laws prevent me from giving any kind of detail about the residents at the nursing home where I work, so I really can't talk about the things that go on there except in very general detail, and what fun is that?  And though I know you'll cheer me on, how much blogging can I do regarding my work outs?  Some, but not much.  I can blog about my NaNo progress, but that's only one month out of twelve...what about the other eleven months?  And do you really want me to blog about the games I'm playing?  If you want that kind of fun, log on and start playing.

So college blogging it least, I'm going to attempt it.  Like many other adults, I'm going back to school to finish my degree and change my career path.  Let's hope you find this journey as interesting and exciting as I hope I will!  

Um...and now that I look at it, I'll work on the layout of this needs some serious help!
