How long has it been since I’ve posted on this blog? Too long. It got lost in cyberspace, covered in cobwebs and dust, and I’m finally pulling it out of that box in the far corner of the internet’s attic, dusting it off and putting it back to work.
I’ve moved to Tacoma, Washington and made some big changes in my life. I no longer work for the State of Alaska, since I no longer live there, and I’m searching for the next step in the adventure I’m on. I have started a small editing business and I can’t wait until it’s off the ground. This fall, I plan to go back to college for engineering. I’m working part-time for the division of elections in my new county, and I am enjoying all the changes as they come. It’s anyone’s guess what the next step will be, but isn’t that the point of adventure?
It’s funny how when you leave something for a while, returning to it will show you how much you have changed. That is what this blog is doing for me. It’s easy to get caught up in picking apart your past, noticing the things you don’t particularly like about it and wishing you could change them. I don’t think this blog was any good and I want to go back, edit each of my posts and make them better. Make them fit who I am today, maybe, and not who I was two years ago. But there is beauty in the past and there is something to be said for accepting it as it is, acknowledging your growth and appreciating it. So I’m going to try to do that and leave the old Arctic Journal alone.
With that having been said, I’d be thrilled if you came and visited my new blog. It’s right here. Enjoy!
