Am back. . . again

Its been almost a year since my last post. The only thing thats changed is me, the kids are surely bigger but situation wise, its pretty much same old same old. Stopped blogging because when the job did not happen, I had to keep moving. If I thought I was busy, what happened next almost killed me. I was working, reading and in school round the clock and it wasn't until my parents came over on a visit that I realized what I was doing to myself. 2010 was not a year I enjoyed, and I bade farewell to it gladly.

Like lots of people, I drifted off to Facebook. and noticed that I would spend hours on Facebook just stalking people. For me it was mostly a where are they now kind of thing. After failing a test, I decided not to go on FB unless if I was done studying and done with housework. It worked, I eventually deleted my account when people started acting as if you had to comment on every post that they had. Unlike blogging, where its more like a discussion, FB was more like
"I just took a bus"
"this prof is boring"

It was annoyingly trivial, I honestly do not note what I do every minute of the day, now why would i be interested in what another person was doing? Besides, the people I knew that did that updated their profile (or whatever its called ) every hour or so. and then they would turn around and start beefing you for no response? That was the final straw. Would it make more sense for me to respond with "who cares?" or "Get a job/life" (and many times I was tempted to do so). My mama taught me better than that, it was easier to get rid of the account.

I only tweeted with one of my classes where the prof tweeted reminders and assignments. Other than that, I am so old school that I do not get twitter. As part of slowing down and getting back to myself I have picked up my two oldest hobbies: reading and writing. Maybe soon, I will spin out a story that would rival The Thorn Birds or Master of the Game, for right now, lemme reclaim my blog and revamp my writing skills.

Still job hunting, but not as desperately. I work part time now so I can be a better wife and mother (LOL). And most importantly, am growing ;). Hopefully, will make my 50 posts this year, lol, and if I don't its all good!

Changed my URL for personal reasons, many apologies. did not announce the change cos it would defeat the purpose.
