When I sat down to write this first post, I was at a loss for how I should begin and what I should say, something that rarely happens to me. I even resulted to googling how a person should best write an initial blog post and everything I read said I should "state my intent." Well, that is the problem. I cannot give you the usual introduction and discuss what exactly this blog will be about because, honestly, I have no idea what will come of it except a lot of happy surprises...some serendipity, if you will. :)
I am busy, but sometimes think I have too much time on my hands. I take on too much because I have trouble saying no for fear of disappointing people. I am impulsive and driven beyond belief. I am committed to living life to the fullest and trying to make those around me love life. I have big ideas, but I am sometimes unsure as to what I should do with them. Admittedly, I am a type-A personality, but with a lot of emotion driving my decisions. I am overly organized, but as a teacher, I think you have to be. Most importantly, though, I am a newlywed who loves her tiny family (my mister and my kitty) more than anything in the world.
Originally, my plan for this blog was to review the books I read, and I read a ton of books. However, the more I thought about it, the more I realized that while including books reviews would be fine, I really just want to talk about whatever I feel is important and whatever is on my mind. Goals? Definitely. Personal struggles? Yep. Obsessive love of books? You betcha. Married life and my adorable cat, Warren? Of course!
