In the past few weeks I have written several blog posts, and posted zero of them, as I’m sure at least a few of you noticed.
I got pretty personal in my last post which touched on my struggles with mental illness, and the response I received was great, but a little bit overwhelming for someone who had previously been very quiet about the issue. Family members and friends are still approaching me about it, wanting to talk about what I wrote. Posting again is a little bit intimidating after that.
So that’s one reason why there hasn’t been anything new on here. Another is because, frankly, I don’t feel like myself these days, and the posts I’ve written –and discarded- have seem strained. I’m not really willing to upload posts that aren’t a representation of my authentic self (whoever she may be).
The semester is over for me, and I’m happy to be home for a few weeks. I’m still loving everything about Glendon as a school and a community, and I hope I’ll come back from this break well rested (hah!) and ready to take on a new semester with some energy and drive in me.
I hope that all of you reading this are having a safe and happy last month of 2015 so far. I should have a real post up soon. (I have one in progress in another window, so we’ll see where that goes.)
