I'm not going to even count the months I've been away.... Its been a long time.
I've missed blogging... I've missed reading updates on my blogging friends....I've missed the process of recording my thoughts, and of having a record of what was going on in my life in a certain month, in a certain year... 2012 is completely remiss.
I had such good intentions.... When we returned home, I'd spend a week locked away with my computer editing photos, writing down stories, editing video.... and then life happened. We got swirled together with projects, applications, reconnecting, and my life recording tumbled off a cliff.
And then GRAD SCHOOL started. Summer school took over every waking minute. If I did anything except study in my free time, guilt curled its way around my soul and squeeze the life out. Economics was especially tough. I made an "A," but I'm not sure the anxiety was worth it. Before one of my tests, I started swallowing air. My throat had restricted. The internet explained that these were signs of extreme stress...
I'm now in the second semester of my international MBA and its much calmer. Its not a breeze by any means, but I have a few moments to catch my breath. Something I didn't feel I had before.
I still feel guilt at not studying in my free time, and using it to blog, but its okay. Life is going to be okay. I'm not sure if I will be able to regularly blog again until after I graduate, but I'm gonna try to update more than I have.
