Why Start Blogging Now?

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.
