Well, I did a thing. I started a blog. Why? Well, let's ponder that for a second. I already have a full-time job teaching fourth grade, a part-time job barista-ing, and a full class load to get my master's degree, so I guess I needed something else to do? Some people might say I have a lot on my plate, and I have to admit that I do. I constantly have a million to-do lists running through my head, and frequently can be found color coding the tasks in my planner so that I can keep my life straight. So do I need to tack on blogger to my bio? No. However, I'm not doing this to add to my resume and create another job to worry about in my day-to-day life. I'm doing this because I like to write. I'm doing this because it's a creative release. I'm doing this because I want to. I tend to justify everything I do with what I determine is an adequate amount of reasons. Do I really need those new shoes? Should I really eat take-out tonight? Should I really cancel that work out class? Usually "because I want to" isn't a good enough reason for me. But this time, it is. I've always wanted to start a blog, so I've decided now is the time! And, call me crazy, but I think that maybe I have some things to write about that people might enjoy. I'd like to think I'm kind of funny and have good advice to give, so maybe someone will stumble upon this little blog of mine and learn something. Or, maybe just my family will read this and be able to hear my voice as they read about my musings (hi family!). Either way, I'm writing this blog for me -to reflect on my life, share my thoughts, and have some fun. So stay tuned! If you read something you like, share it (because I guess I would like more than just my family to read this)! Go on this adventure with me.
