After six years of teaching, I've realized that I have a teacher's life cycle. In the beginning of the school year, my entire focus is on teaching, so I stop doing other things that were once important (such as a blog). Then, as school breaks come, I become motivated to do things again. (So I re-start my blog...) Lastly, as class starts up again, I stop all things but school related things. My reason for saying this is that it is summer vacation, and that's probably why I'm making an attempt at re-starting my blog. I really hope it will last, but unlike other times, I am not going to make promises.
I've realized my mistake from past attempts. Unlike before, I am not going to promise to keep updating. I can't promise to read other people's blogs, although I will as much as I can. And I WILL NOT sign up to write promotional blog entries unless I truly feel comfortable that I can continue to blog long term. It's not fair to the companies who send me products to try.
I've erased all unread mail messages, and will write when I want to, because once I feel this blog is a chore, I will stop.
So here's to starting fresh!! I missed this. :-)
