Back to blogging

It has been almost a full year since I posted on my blog. There are many reasons for this, one of which is that life got away from me and another is that I graduated from college. It always happens this way, the important things get pushed away by "more important" things and then a year goes by.

Scary how that can happen.

At any rate, I'm back to blogging or I want to be back to blogging. Mostly because I need to write, I have this ache to write and when I write, I feel better.  Feeling better or feeling good is something to strive for, I think. Not to become someone who is obsessed with feeling great all the time, but in order to bring sanity into an otherwise hectic lifestyle.

Did I mention that I am a full-time graduate student and also work 25+ hours a week? I don't pretend to have a harder schedule than most of the working women in America, most of working men for that matter (I'm big on comparing in context)- but I stay pretty busy.

I realized I have a good bit to say and while no one is reading this blog, I can say them and not get embarrassed when no one asks me about them.

Most of all, I can hone my writing here. My old blog, Set Apart, was all about venting or pushing out thoughts about random parts of my life. I want this blog to be about honing my writing, about making statements about things that matter to me but also matter on a broader scale (hold onto your hats, we may talk politics).

Who knows where this may take me.

If you're reading, thanks. I hope we can learn together.
