I am not sure why I want to blog. I am not even sure what I have to say...Really makes you want to read this, huh? I guess I feel the urge to blog because I have always wanted to; I have an MA in English, so I also feel like I should work on my writing.
I graduated with my MA in 2007, so I have been getting rusty on my writing. I've had various jobs since graduating: guest relations at Biltmore Estate (aka tour guide), independent bookstore clerk, adjunct at a community college, and Direct Services Coordinator for a Sexual Trauma Center. Right now: adjunct. I think this odd mish-mash of jobs and experiences makes for a promising blog. I also like to bake and have cats; cliche, but true.
Most importantly I am a newly wed who is trying to find her way in religion again. No, I won't condemn you all to hell, but I will be tackling my own questions with religion. (Also, who am I to condemn? I am writing this while drinking wine; I am no Angel.) I want to make 2011 a year of self discovery and understanding of happiness.
I picked up a book before I got married titled The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin. I've just now gotten around to reading it. The premise of the book is that by changing the way you view the world and how you go about your day, you can find happiness. (I promise when I picked up the book, I had no idea it was a semi-self help book; I liked the title and the cover. I tend to "judge a book by its cover!"I would, however, recommend the book to anyone.) I already write in a journal, but Ms. Rubin said she gained a lot of happiness from her blog. Since I am starting my own "Happiness Project," I figured that I too would get that nagging feeling of "I could blog" out of my system.
Therefore, what you will find in this blog is:
--job stories (some funny, some not so funny)
--newly wed stuff
--and who knows what else!
