I've begun counting down to the time when my classes for this additional teaching license are over (31 days). I've started thinking forward to next year. To my next move. I have yet to experience no school. I'm looking forward to having a little more time to read, to blog, to see friends, to go to movies (I can't remember the last movie I saw in an actual theater).
My plan, my well intentioned plan, was to take a mini-vacation from this blog. To not write. To take the time I spend doing this, on something else. But I miss it. I miss sitting here having a conversation with... you. Myself. My future self. Who knows. But I know I miss it. The blank page that I get to create. The clickety clack of the keys as I type my thoughts and then the click, click click, of deleting an entire sentence or two.
I think I may start to do a series I found on another blog. It's a list of 30 topics that you write on. Just so I don't have to rack my brain too hard trying to come up with something out of thin air. And it's kind of a fun idea.
For now, I'm going to sign off. Head home from the cafe that I have holed myself up in for hours at a time for the last couple months (it's my homework haven). And take a night to relax. Well, that's the goal at least.
Remember life is short. So think about your dreams a little harder.
Reach a little higher. Laugh a little louder. Love a little stronger.
Because many things in life can wait... The Sunset Won't!
I took a vacation from blogging, too. Only mine lasted about a year and a half. It's okay to do that. Life is the reason we write -- not the other way around.ReplyDelete
And no matter how long the vacation lasts, we tend to return with renewed vigor and energy and determination. And that's always a good thing!
