I recently rediscovered my old blog... As in the blog that started my blogging days. I'd say that was when I was a fledgling blogger, but I think that's still true today.
The backstory for those of you that don't know is that when I was student teaching, I began to express some of my daily thoughts in the fashion of a blog in which my college friends read. What we all quickly realized is that while life was busy and hectic and we rarely ever saw each other (welcome to the life of an education major), we were all experiencing similar hardships.
For us, my writing provided the opportunity to relate. And so I wrote, and will continue to write for you.
I called myself "the Erratic Student" then; erratic doesn't even begin to explain me now. The old blog is hilarious, mostly because it was +3 years ago and my life is vastly different now. I'm a little embarrassed of some of the things I wrote back then, but I've always been good at making a fool of myself, so allow me to continue.
I present to you some of my former blog posts:
If you have the time, peruse these posts of the past. They're interesting, surely, but they also show how far we've come.
One thing has been entirely true throughout this process; the pen and paper, or even this keyboard, help share my joys, my burdens, and my experiences. And while I have a unique story to tell, many of you can relate. And for me, someone who often feels overwhelmed by our (in)significant lives, this helps me see the significance in our short times together.
Continue reading my friends. I'll continue writing.
