Back to Business

August 2016… the last time I logged in on this blog and wow, so, so much has changed.

Over a year ago, I took a *much longer than intended* break from blogging, social media, and writing all together because I felt that because of all of the real world commitments I had made, I couldn’t commit to much in this virtual world. While life stressors seem to be building and life seems to be growing more and more hectic by the hour, I still feel empty. I feel like I’m missing something, that I’m not doing something that I’m supposed to be doing- which feels very similar to walking into a room and forgetting why. It’s aggravating, frustrating, and you feel taunted by your forgetfulness.

I recently downloaded Google Docs so that I could write something for grad-school (Social Work), and came across my rough, ROUGH draft of a poetry book I started about 2 years ago. I hadn’t looked at it since leaving this blog. It flooded my heart and filled that strange void I was feeling.

I plan get back into the rhythm of things and get my flow back… get it… rhythm and flow… like a poem..? Ah, forget it!

ANYWAY, without further ado, I just wanted to re-introduce myself to this wonderful community. I hope we will get to know one another soon!

  1. I just had to reply to comment – I also just logged onto my blog for the first time in quite awhile last night (though not as long as you) as I am feeling that angst and have been missing writing sooo much! I too am in school for Social Work and that is taking up my life (as you well understand!). But…I am feeling such a void and must try to make time for beautiful words. There has been silence for some time but I think I finally hear my Muse whispering out from the depths… 🙂

    Happy writing and best to you in your studies!

      1. I seemed to somehow naturally fall back into this, it wasn’t planned and I hadn’t thought about it at all for awhile. I guess we’ll see how things go this time around!
        School and work is definitely overwhelming, however, we should always make time to do what we love, especially when it feels like the right thing to do.
        Good luck to you in all of your endeavors!
