About Me

My name is Allison, and I started this blog about a year ago with unsure intentions and no clue on what I planned to do with the blog itself and my writing.
A difficult time in my life urged me to search the internet for “how to make my own blog” and the first link I opened led me to WordPress. I thought I was going to write pieces on lifestyle, relationships, do some ranting and maybe a little complaining here and there to help me work through the troubles I was having. Though, after I had the blog for about 3 months, I, for some unknown reason, decided to write a (honestly, terrible) poem and ever since then, that’s mostly all I write.
I wrote under the pen name, Blair King, until this past October, until I finally decided that I wasn’t ashamed of what I’m doing. Even if what I put out there isn’t the best, or even my best, poetry is still new to me, I’m still learning and I should be proud of how far I’ve come with no knowledge or background with writing or blogging. Poetry helps me transform my thoughts, emotions, confusion, pain, etc. into an experience that I, and hopefully others, can learn from.
In a year of having this blog and maybe 8 months of actually writing and posting, my whim and random decision has transformed into this amazing community.
I sincerely cannot believe the support I have received. Thank you all for the the follows, the likes, the comments, and for simply reading what I have to say. You will never know how much it means to me!

EDIT: I have beenΒ away for now over a year, I have made some major life changes and will be making some major online changes as well.Β I do plan to-revamp this blog and make it a bit more… me. πŸ™‚

  1. As a teacher/writer the best advice I can give you is follow your passion. I was doubtful about teaching at first and now I am so happy it was something I pursued. I love working with students; and I also love writing. Teaching doesn’t give you time to write but it can give you a reason to.

    1. What do you teach?
      I’ve been gearing toward teaching kindergarten since I was in kindergarten myself and while I still believe that I will enjoy teaching young kids, it doesn’t give me much of an opportunity to dedicate myself to writing. I didn’t realize how much I loved it until my senior year of high school AP English class. Ever since then, I look forward to writing essays for my classes more than I look forward to doing my clinicals in elementary classrooms. I’m the only person I know who sighs in relief when most of my coursework is to write thirty-page papers – No matter the topic!
      It may just be nerves, as student teaching is nearing. But it also may be my brain trying to tell me something.

      1. I went through to teach high school but went back so I can teach elementary. I did a lot of teaching in Grades 3-6 and now I am working in supplemental education- which means I teach pre-K to end of high school! I am right with you. I was totally the person who would pick courses because the projects were mostly essays vs. labs or other assessments.
        Honestly teaching is difficult and teacher’s college is not a very accurate snap shot of what teaching is like either way. If you have made it this far I would encourage you to try it out for at least two years after you graduate (the first year sucks a lot but it does for everyone). If after your second year you find that you really don’t enjoy it then I would say at that point see what your options are. I found I did a lot of writing while I was on supply and that things that happened to me during the day would give me ideas. Writing became my safe harbour and I enjoyed it more and prioritized it more than I do now when I have a bit more time on my hands.

        1. I’m definitely still going to finish school for it and give it a shot. At least try. Right now, I’m just planning to go where my heart and mind takes me. I know that sounds a little naive, but that’s really all I can do. I don’t want to be trapped in a profession I can’t stand and I don’t want to miss out on something I was meant to do.
          I’ve heard a lot of teachers say you only use about 10% of what you learned in college and everything else is learned through experience after you have your own classroom. I can believe that because I feel like I’m missing a lot of necessary information that I will need to just begin to teach. So I guess all I can really do is trial and error.
          And lately I’ve been considering maybe trying to reach a creative writing class or something that kind of meshes my interests. I don’t know, I have a lot of thoughts, too many options, and not enough surety in my own decisions.

          1. Frank McCourt spent his life teaching and then wrote some fine books–Angela’s Ashes, Teacher Man. Writing is a difficult choice for a career unless you are willing to work tirelessly to promote yourself and are very very focused and disciplined, as there are no time clocks and once you’re out of school and you have no one directing your writing activities, it’s just not the same. Be a teacher. Be a writer. Teaching will no doubt give you all kinds of inspiration. Keep a journal and write down those moments you know will be literary gems when shared in just the right way. There are tons of online writing courses, and I find that writing is one of the subjects that lends itself really well to online study. I recommend the GALE or ed2go courses if they’re available in your area. I was able to take them free for a while through my local library, but now they have a small cost attached to them. The wonderful thing is you are young and have some time to find your voice and develop your style. Best of luck to you in both endeavours!

        I think you should be a writer,
        because your About Me post had me at Hello.

  2. I have approached teaching from another aspect. I went to college, studied history and planned on becoming a lawyer. Along the way, I started tutoring other students. When I graduated I was asked to take on a larger role in the tutoring department, which in turn led to teaching remedial classes. When I completed my master’s I ended up teaching English. I love teaching! I can’t imagine pursuing another career. I now work with several education majors and my advice to them is to find out what inspires you. If it is writing, then see if you can work some creative writing/writer’s workshops into your classroom. When I volunteer at the local elementary where my kids attend (theya re in K and 2nd) they do creative writing exercises. Kids are a lot of fun…and a great source for things to write about! Best of luck!

I hadn’t really thought about writing workshops for elementary students. That’s something to think about! Thanks!

      1. You are quite welcome. In college I was a history major not an English major. I took a few literature classes but actually studied Math more than English. However, when I went to earn my MA, I found an excellent program that caught my interest. So, I became an English professor quite by accident. I still teach remedial Math and other courses but I always work writing into what I do. I’m always happy to help if I can. Good luck.

  3. Hi Blair, Enjoyed reading your poetry, but could not seem to like it. This is a dilemma for many, but a lot of the writers I am following at the moment are teachers, who write part time, but have published several novels (mainly for children and teens) in fact one of my great friends is a teacher ( he taught me) and a considerable author and runs one the major sights for Children’s literature in the world. I had the choice of librarianship and teaching, but not really feeling confident to stand up in front of people I became a librarian, and a writer, and strangely a teacher, as I ran courses for the libraries for running a business, becoming a tour guide, and creative writing. I am retired now, and running a charity bookshop for help the rural child. Writing may be a bit difficult to start with as you set yourself up in your new career, but I think that may be the same in any career to start with. The main thing is to find at least half an hour per day to write. Best wishes and blessings, Charles.

      I’ve heard a lot of people say that one of the most important things about writing is to read every day and write every day.
      I’ve considered applying for a job in a library because they offer workshops and things like that to kids and I felt that it was something I would enjoy. The times just don’t work out with my school and work schedule. Maybe I could volunteer during the summer sometime.

  9. I read your pieces and though I found them pretty good. At this time, it would be best to finish school and try to teach. You can always change your path if you don’t like. At least you won’t regret not trying teaching. As far as writing full time is concerned, I’d say no because writing is your passion but it might not be your bread and butter. You can pursue writing along with other things too. And believe me, you get a lot of ideas when you’re busy.

  10. Hi Blair,

    It’s been wonderful reading you poetry and all about your life. I’m not a teacher nor am I a journalist, but I do identify with your crisis. I’m a writer who’s been working in films, television, e-commerce industry, e-learning industry and what have you. But while doing all this has been satisfactory and has been paying the bills, I always feel a ache in my heart. Almost as if I’m longing to be somewhere else, do something else. I still don’t know what that something or somewhere is. But I can tell you one thing, the journey to find that out is far more beautiful that knowing directly.

    Some people are fortunate to know what they want in their life. For the rest, like you and me, its another way to discover ourselves and the world we will live in. Its perfectly normal to not know what you want to do or where you want to be headed. Enjoy the journey! I certainly am enjoying mine and reading your work adds some more colour to it. Keep writing and keep smiling! πŸ™‚

  12. I felt lost recently in my life. I am in college too and I told myself it would be better if I pursue a major in Criminal Justice because I overcame a lot in my life and I want to save people. However, I am a very artistic, social intellectual. I can get very silly at times. I tend to disobey rules. But I always wanted to be tough and protect people with my strength. Then I realized music, art, and literature save people too. Art is powerful, so powerful that even life itself imitates art. It can give people hope, a feeling that you are not alone, that you are not the first person to struggle with any given situation. So now I aim towards majoring in Liberal Arts because I do not have to prove to anyone that I am strong by sheer brute force. I am strong in a way that displays vulnerability as power. I am not afraid to express myself and to admit I can relate to others. It is good to explore other opportunities or else you will always wonder, “what if?”

You can’t do and have everything, you have to make choices. But I hope that I will be able to incorporate writing into my life regardless of my profession.
      I agree that writing and art saves people. It provides a sense of comfort that’s almost impossible to find anywhere else. Strength of the mind is more important and more useful in many ways than strength of the body.
      Through art and literature, you can do anything. You can uplift people, create pain, happiness, anger, anything you can imagine. Words are much more powerful than most give them credit for.
      Good luck with your major!

  13. I rarely give advice since I got out of the mental health care racket, but I saw this post, and thought I’d add my last two cents.

    Live out your dreams, but keep bread in the pantry when you wake up every morning.. Writing is a labor of love, and it costs just for the chance to make it a career that will pay the bills. You have the background and momentum to teach; a necessary and under-appreciated role in society, but one that will pay you. As others have commented, your experience will give you something to write about, though not enough time. That’s precisely the kind of writing that sells and makes a difference too, because you won’t have time to agonize over perfection or striving to be unique. You’ll find yourself saying close enough to what you want, and be able to relate better,to more people, at least from what I’ve seen from other writers who have demanding professions.

    Journalism is tough, and it’s getting tougher, and maybe not for the reasons you think. Truth is an outmoded commodity that is getting pushed out of the journalism business, at least from my disillusioned perspective. If you’re in the Pacific Northwest, and want to give it a shot anyways, I have a couple contacts that I could refer you to.

    Thank you for checking out my blog, and I’ll peruse your site some more. Good luck with your studies and whatever path you follow in life.

    1. I already am very pushed for time and have managed to write at least every other day. I actually enjoy writing quickly, and I don’t really know how to take my time, getting the wording “just right” – at least with poetry. To me, I think that it should be written quickly, to avoid straying from the thought. It keeps you and your work more honest in a way.
      I am going to look into freelance writing while I’m still in school, whether it is paid or unpaid, just to test the waters before I dive into something over my head.
      I agree, there are a lot of aspects of journalism that I don’t agree with or like. But, I don’t think all media is corrupted. If I were to go into journalism, I would either work to change those principles or find somewhere that doesn’t support them.
      And I would appreciate that! I’m actually closer to the East coast -But, who were the contacts?

  15. So glad to have discovered your site and interested to read of your uncertainty about your career choice. Being a teacher will open up many doors to you in the future. It is sometimes amazing how life turns out. After many years working in the secretarial/PA field, I trained to work in adult education and spent three years teaching. This experience helped me in gaining other roles.

    I have a wide work experience but what I consider as the highlight and passion of my working career was to set up and run a community mediation service, which then led to developing a service for young people and their families. My teaching experience enabled me to train our volunteers (and I had previously trained childminders in another role). Sadly I had to leave that role after 8 years but I started a creative writing course which I absolutely loved and it has opened up a whole new world. As a direct result, it was an Access to University course, I discovered a Social Sciences degree and became a (very) mature student.

    I also became a Student Ambassador and just before I had to take a break, did a teaching course so that I could teach in the community and in schools for the University’s partnership development office. I am interested in the value of creativity and memories, and working with people who may otherwise not realise that they are able to create either in words or images. I was able to apply for a Community Scholarship and we put on a day for young people and their families and it was a great success.

    So, a question for you, if you had no limitations and could do anything you really wanted to do, what would you do? Spend time dreaming about it, find yourself some quiet time to yourself, and write about it (three pages minimum!).

    If you decide to do this, and felt able to share it, I would love to read it. Kay

I’d love to teach a creative writing class, to own an animal shelter/sanctuary, to spend all day writing, to design billboards, to work as a detective, lol. I have too many deep interests, it’s so hard to really settle on any one thing.
      I think doing some sort of creative writing course in an inner-city school would be great though, if I were to mesh my teaching and writing interests. Kind of like what you said about yourself, I value creativity and I’m interested in helping people realize their creativity who may have never known they had it in them.

      1. Thank you for coming back to me Blair. Don’t think of it being sad that you cannot choose, although I have some idea of what you mean. It can be so frustrating having so many interests in different things and I have been like that most of my adult life – still like it! Maybe it’s something about people who are creative in some way, but I believe it leads to a rich variety of experiences and opportunities to meet different people. Interestingly, the one time things really came together for me was when I was at a crossroads carreer-wise, needed a job, and wrote down everything I wanted in a job and everything I didn’t. Quite amazingly I ended up – in a very synchronicitous (is this a word?) way – getting a job that I would never have applied for had not someone pointed it out to me and encouraged me. I knew nothing about mediation. Some while after I started, I came across my list and it was startling how it met with my desires. I never thought I would find a job that enabled me to do all the things I liked doing and which avoided most of the things I didn’t like. It was such a fulfilling role in so many different ways, my wonderful colleagues, exceptional team of volunteers, the satisfaction gained through the help provided to our clients seeing the difference made to their lives, learning so many new things, training members of the community, other professionals and young people in schools in mediation skills. Putting on social events to raise funds and being able to utilise the skills of one of our staff team who was also a professional artist. We were able to develop many different projects including working in partnership with two Universities and we were just a small local charity. The opportunities were endless, sadly the funding was not. But working in the voluntary sector was the best decision I ever made, it opened up a whole new world. I’ve yet again rambled on a bit but just wanted to show, sometimes you don’t have to decide which path to take, just try and keep a focus on the things you really want in your career (even if you don’t think you can have them all at the same time).

All our decisions are taken at a moment in time based on how we feel then. So every decision, even if it is to do nothing, is right. We may want to change it later because we fell differently but that is also right. Every decision we make is a gamble, a choice we have to make. We will always get plenty of advice from others and it’s easy for them because they don’t make our decisions for us.

With newspapers disappearing, I don’t know what your chances are of getting a job as a full-time journalist. Whichever road you choose, or even if it’s ten of them, it’ll work out however it does, and you’ll learn a lot. Best of luck to you!

  21. Hi Blair, I too work with children as an early childhood educator, but my real passion is writing! I’m almost finished my studies at uni, Bachelor of Arts in writing and media. I get your feeling of been lost, I’ve been lost in this area for a long time. All I know is I want to write! So I’m pursuing my dream of becoming an author!
    Good Luck with it all, and remember do what you love to do, follow your dreams!

    1. I’ve decided to go ahead with my degree and try to get published at the same time. I finished a short chapbook to just get my foot in the door and I have been waiting to hear back from publishers for over a month now with no word. I had no idea it would take this long to hear back. Now I’m to the point of just wanting to know SOMETHING, even if it is rejected haha.
      Thank you, and good luck to you as well! πŸ™‚

    1. No problem πŸ™‚
      I ended up having to drop the journalism :/ my schedule wouldn’t allot enough time for the rest of the classes. But I have half of a journalism minor and half of am English minor haha, maybe I can go back once I graduate and finish those two up. I don’t know why, because I still have no idea what I want to do.

    How goes your teacher prep? I have read some of the encouragement and good advice you have received here: Good words. In all likelihood, you will have more than one career. How wonderful that you enjoy so many things. I say start with teaching and write for fun.

  24. I used to be a careers counsellor. And if a student came to me with the same story I would say to choose the more difficult of the two. IE Journalism. If you don’t like it you can more easily transfer to teaching. If you choose teaching and later you want to change it is much more difficult to get a position in journalism.

  25. Just write what is true, write from the heart and write for you. And remember, you can always write, but you need to experience life, for life experiences will become your material regardless if you write fiction, nonfiction, essays, or poetry. Good luck and be well.

  26. Thanks for dropping by and ‘liking’ my post. Interesting isn’t it how everyone’s willing to offer their ‘words of wisdom’ to you. I won’t add to that here. But thanks for the encouragement and hope all works out well for you – who knows what dreams may come?
