Hey, There

It’s been a long time since I welcomed new readers. How’s it going? Thank you for finding me, and I’m completely fine if you decide to stay or leave. But I’d prefer that you stay. And if you stay, I’m fine if you lurk or comment. I do like comments, but I won’t push you to do anything that makes you uncomfortable. And if you comment, I’m fine if you make yourself at home – please do – but please don’t leave your dirty socks on the coffee table. I reserve the right to take your socks and put them on your face while you sleep. But I will probably also make popcorn and sit down to a movie with you.

We can all be friends, right?

Thanks for visiting, friends of friends, who are now also friends of the first degree. Thanks for coming back, loyal long-timers. All of you are wonderful.

I’m going to try updating this blog weekly throughout this semester. I’ve really, really enjoyed the summer, and now it’s time to get down to business. And of course I’m going to have things to say about what I’m learning and the kids in my classes and my professors and chances I’ll have to socialize and go to church. You know I’ll have opinions.

They just won’t come as often.

Anyway, just thank you for reading, perusing, getting to know me. My whole life isn’t my blog, but it’s honest and fun enough, maybe. Sometimes it’s entertaining. It’s a good place to start.

Besides, I’m so much cooler in person.

And, I’d like to get to know you.

I have a hunch you’re pretty cool, too.
