I don’t know what I was thinking. I do love to write, and I have bunch of foolish/not-so foolish thoughts to share with the world, but did I really account for the time it would take out of my schedule? Initially, I wanted to (re)start a blog to document my upcoming travels and experiences as a working court reporter (yes, yes, I was looking waaaaay ahead), but then I decided to start now.
Now, when I already have full-time schooling, a frisky and unrelenting toddler to mother, a part-time job, two crazy athletic events to train for, and sleep and more studying somewhere in between. And now this blog. WAIT – I forgot to mention the volunteer hours I hope to be logging at the zoo this summer and the continuous European vacation planning extravaganza that is to take place this August. Perhaps I possess masochistic qualities, but I.love.having.a.full.plate.ALWAYS. Hear me squeal and whine about it now but I fully intend to have every single item crossed off my to-do list!
My sincerest apologies for not writing sooner. It’s review week and I’ve been catching up on some of the exercises I’ve been sort of neglecting. I’m caught up now, so here I am! Though I don’t attend class every day (we operate on a self-guided schedule, and I must attend class at least 50% of the time), that doesn’t mean I’m not working. I have to account for at least 10 hours of online writing practice per week, plus daily dictation exercises and reports, and a very tricky grammar course that stumps even ME at times (if you don’t know me personally, I’m a spelling and grammar PSYCHO, so please proof-read your emails and comments before you send me any =P).
I once had a blog on which I posted almost daily, and in the mere 4 (?) months of its existence it accumulated over 1,500 visits. I’d say that ain’t too shabby 😉
Please help me get there again this time – heck, let’s exceed that goal!
Thank you for your visit today, and hopefully tomorrow and several times after that!
One day I plan to do a post on cupcake reviews. I like to call them fat cakes actually, because since I returned from maternity leave, stopped working out and started ingesting these little cups of satan, I gained 7 pounds 😦 For that reason, I am going to be running a 10K race in May and some scary-looking what-the-fk-was-I-thinking Spartan obstacle race in June, after which I expect to melt off the aforementioned poundage. Then go on vacation. YAY!
I digress. Stay tuned, upcoming post is already in the works 🙂
