I know you're looking at your blogger feed like, "Who the heck is this?" I know, I know. It's been a while . . . you haven't heard a peep from me since late 2010 so . . . PEEP!

I've still been around on twitter and tumblr and occasionally fotki but I've been missing posts longer than 140 characters that don't include cute bunnies eating bananas and the like.

Let's play catch up, shall we? ROLL THE HIGHLIGHTS!

Since my last post, I graduated from college (again!) on May 14, 2011!

And I turned in my creative thesis (i.e. my book of poetry) on November 15, 2011 and was officially awarded my Master of Fine Arts in Writing.

On Valentine's Day 2012, I finally started submitting my book out to publishing contests. Cross your fingers for me, okay? I really want to get this thing published! I need it!

*insert picture of YOU crossing your fingers*

Also, somewhere in that mix I was happy, sad, angry, sleepy, grumpy, perky, and I dyed my hair and it grew a lot, lol.

And here we are . . . May 9, 2012. I'm still a college professor (well, technically a "lecturer" but, eh, I like the sound of professor better, don't you?) and we're about to go on summer break. Yay for breaks! I've gone back to retail for the summer in a management position so I'm exhausted all the time but it's a good exhausted because they give me money, lol. Anyway, I have good news . . . CUE THE NEWS!

Sunday night it hit me -- I want to go to school again! Yeah, I know, I know . . . I'm a college professor so I'm in school all the time. What I mean is I want to be a student again . . . specifically a doctoral student. That's right . . . Ph. D. application time, baby!

So, I figured I'd dust this blog off . . . get to logging my experiences again. Over the next couple of weeks, I'll try to gussy up the place (I'm a bit over the large bee and yellow).

And for kicks . . . a cute bunny eating a banana!

  1. Congrats! I followed you back when we were both applying to MFA programs. I graduated a year ago with an MFA in Creative Nonfiction and am also hoping (someday!) to publish parts of my thesis as memoir. I loved every second of being a student again, and I can see why you've got the PhD bug. I very much wished our program (Eastern Washington) was 3 years. Good luck in your applications.

  2. Thanks, Bess! And congratulations to you as well! Yeah, I love being a student, I can't wait to do it again! Good luck to you as well!

  3. This article is interesting and useful. Thank you for sharing. And let me share an article about health that God willing will be very useful. Thank you :)
