First off, let me apologize for being M.I.A. for the last three years. Yes, three years, and I feel like during that time I have lost a little of myself by not writing. To begin let’s just do a little quick catch-up.
I am still single, and as far as I’m concerned couldn’t see myself any other way. I have finished my post-bac in the biological sciences. I am still trying to get into grad school… I’m the poster child for the Chinese proverb, “Fall seven times, get up eight”. In order to help my applications to grad school, I decided that being a science teacher would not only look great but show my “ability” to teach (which is something I will have to do when I get in). As far as I know, right now I’m teaching ninth graders and maybe some chemistry. I have forgotten what it’s like to be in high school let along being in high school with a cell phone, I never had that when I was growing up. These kids nowadays don’t look their age, hell, they look older than I do at times! If my high school teachers could see me now they would probably choke; never would they have thought I would be a science teacher of all things.
During this unplanned hiatus, I have had a lot of time to grow as a person and believe you me, I plan on sharing those moments with you. There is something cathartic about writing (or in this case typing) things down that soothes the soul, and I can assure you that I am a soul that needs some soothing. I can’t promise much, but I hope to make you laugh along the way, because Kermit is right, we aren’t making it out alive.
