Return to Me

Here's the thing... Writing is pretty hard when you feel like you don't have anything to say.

I've spent the better part of two years feeling like I didn't really have anything to add, nothing to contribute. It was odd how going to school affected me and almost made me feel less human. And then... for the first time in two years, I took the summer off from school and started working part-time at a design firm and then... Like magic, I began to feel more like myself again. It was amazing, like the color was back in my cheeks.

But the pitfall is that I'm not done. I have only a few classes, but with my luck it will take another year before I can walk away with a diploma. It's a three year program but I've been trying to jam through it. Maybe it's why I felt so useless? The thing is, I thrive on work. Not school. I'm not programmed to be an adult student, I'm programmed to be a never-stop-real-world person, a worker bee.

Regardless, I'm vowing to not lose myself again. And with that, a re-newed interest in this blog.

Let's give it another shot.
