First off...Welcome to my little piece of the internet. You may be wondering why I decided to start another blog. I have had two blogs before this one.
The first was a blog that I had when I was going through a rough time in my life. My marriage was failing and I needed an outlet. I decided to delete it when I felt all I was doing was being fake. I didn't want to post negative things so I posted only cheerful posts even though I felt the walls were caving in on me. I didn't want anyone that read my blog to see how I was falling apart.
The second blog, I wrote under a pseudonym. I was able to write about whatever I wanted and since it was under a pseudonym. I was able to be the person I wanted to be and not have to worry about the ramifications. I made the decision to delete that one about a year or so ago because I wanted a clean slate and really wanted to find a balance between the two blogs.
So here I am with my third blog. I want this one to be a mixture of the two. I want this one to show the real me including all my glorious flaws. I struggled with the decision of whether to write under my real name or a pseudonym. Like most people, I have two sides to me. I just happened to give that side of me a name.
I will be writing about my struggles with balancing being a single mom, full-time employee, full-time student, and not lose myself in the process. No topics are going to be off limits. I am going to talk politics, religion, sex, dating, and whatever else I feel like talking about. This is my blog after all.
I hope that you come back to see what I have gotten myself into recently.
