Where Did Summer Go?

Apparently, I have not blogged since July 11th. It has become a pattern that I just do not have as much time or desire to update this as I once did. Although as I enter the next stage of my personal, academic and professional life I can't bring myself to pull the plug entirely.

The last couple months have been good and things have begun to fall into place. I have been busy preparing for my first semester in the Leadership in Student Affairs Program at the University of St Thomas, and recently began an internship in Student Services at Concordia University in St. Paul. It is a challenging, fun and exciting time as I begin this new journey.

Many people have asked me recently if I am ready to be back in school. The answer to that question is really a multi-faceted one. Yes, I am ready to learn, to be taking steps to move forward on my chosen path, and to be back in the higher education environment I love. I know, however, that the rigorous schedule of work, internship, classes, studying, and attempting to maintain a personal life will take some time to get used to again. But I am ready and I embrace it.

Wish me luck!

You'll get back into the swing of things! Might be a bit stressful at first, but you can do it!

As for keeping up a blog...its definitely difficult sometimes to find the time for it. I, personally, lost interest in I don't blame you for a lack of posting!!
