And so it begins...

For years, I've been telling myself (and anyone who would listen to me) that I was going to start a blog- a place where I could reflect on the daily happenings in my life as a thirty-something, bibliophile, novice baker, art admirer, cat lover, and teacher, among other things.  Time after time, I've put it off for a variety of reasons...what if I don't have anything relevant to say or what if it all comes out wrong...I have too much on my mind...what if nobody wants to read my ramblings...I'm not sure what to write about...I don't have my own cool graphics...Lately, that's been my main page is not beautiful enough to support my words or worthy enough to compete with all the other amazing blogs out there....but no more excuses.  It's time to face my life head on.  I'm not getting younger, and life isn't stopping to wait for cute graphics.

While many people choose December 31st to become more resolute, as a teacher, my life revolves around school, so tomorrow is my New Year, and today, I resolve to begin my blog.  I'm not sure about my POV (point of view) yet.  I don't know if I'll focus on my classroom or my recent dive into the world of cupcakes.  Perhaps my blog will be a mish mash of this and that, just like my life.  After all, this is a reflection of who I am.  My goal is to write at least once a week.  I know I won't be able to write every day, and I don't want to set myself up for failure.  Who knows...a year from now, maybe I will be writing every day, but for now, I'm going to keep my goal attainable.  I can't wait to look back and see the growth and change that is sometimes hard to see in the present.  Here's to a year of reflection and sanity!
