Remember When I Used to be a Blogger?

Ah, yes, I remember those days too. The good ol' days when I actually kept up a blog and told people how I felt about people and stuff happening in my life. In case you're concerned, I still do tell people those things, I just haven't been doing it via a blog. In my last post, I said, "Will I continue chronicling my life here on this blog? For now, absolutely, but there are no guarantees here at Life: The Ongoing Education, just as there are no guarantees in life itself." I suppose I meant it at the time, but clearly I didn't follow through, since there has been no chronicling since that post. Why is that? Well, there are a few different answers...

1. I was busy with other things. Like I said at the time, sometimes it's more important to live life than to write about it. I had a great summer of 2012, I enjoyed the following school year a lot, I went to Europe in the summer of 2013, and the 2013-2014 school year was one of the worst AND best of my life (worst in the first half, best in the second half). So yeah, I've had things on my plate.

2. I started a fashion blog as a way to connect with my students, and when I could manage a little bit of time for blogging, the time went there. Don't worry, though -- I was pretty bad about regularly keeping up with that one too.

3. I became much more socially active. 2011-2012 was the school year that solidified "The Girls" as a clear-cut social circle of which I played (I think) an integral part, and there were suddenly a lot more activities going on.

Me and (some of) "The Girls" in question.

In 2012-2013 we started having extended gatherings that included "The Boys," a clear group of guys we also liked to hang out with (and including one guy who ended up married to one of "The Girls"). There was a lot of fun stuff happening all of a sudden, and it seemed better to enjoy it than to document it on a blog.

So yeah, lots has been going on. And what's with this post? Is it the start of something regular again? I don't know, honestly. Part of me misses blogging and tweeting with you all. Part of me doesn't even know who "you all" includes. Part of me likes living life without an online agenda. Part of me wants a place to share my snarky one-liners. I just don't know.

Oh, and also, I have a boyfriend now. We'll call him Pakk. He is AMAZING and I am so incredibly in love that you could not even believe. So I guess if I start blogging again you'd hear lots about him.

That all said, who thinks I should come back to blogging? Who's even here to read if I do come back to blogging?

I read too. So honored to have been a part of your journey. I, too have had to adapt and change in the process of blogging - had to recently go private thanks to students finding me, just added you to list if you care to catch back up.
