I used to blog a lot in my twenties. At first I started doing it because it was something trendy and I thought it would impress a new friend. Then it became a place for me to rant a little bit and throw out some of my hostility into the netherweb. I've since discovered better ways to express myself and also have a better handle on how to make my mark on the world.
Fast forward a bunch of years and now I'm more than halfway through getting a degree in Elementary Education and married to a writer/filmmaker. I was lucky enough to meet my lovely husband at the age of 32, way beyond the typical Utah marriage expiration date. He's my best friend and favorite person in the whole world.
I haven't felt the need to share my opinion about things online like I used to, because I was so involved with writing papers and reading textbooks. So much has been happening in society and the world at large that makes me wonder about the future but it also just makes me that more determined to be a teacher. I want to be able to help kids develop critical thinking skills so that they can learn how to filter out truth from fiction in this world where information is available immediately and isn't always factual.
So if no one besides my husband ever reads this, I can live with that. But at least I'm leaving something out there for my future posterity to find.
