Under Pressure ...

I have come to this blog and started a new post 127 different times. Such pressure to be witty and readable. I'm going to stop pressuring myself and just write. I don't have any readers anyway as my posts are less than consistant, right? Nothing ventured ... nothing gained.

End of the college semester right now. I am always mixed about my feelings ... on one hand I am so glad for the down time that comes with summer. On the other, I have some wonderful students that I am truly going to miss. These students are amazing. It is fun to be a part of their experiences - however small my part is. I enjoy them.

Today was Bring Your Child to Work Day. Michael was an excellent assistant - shredded documents, took messages to co-workers, and we even had lunch with my great friend/co-worker and my big boss. Not my direct boss, but the boss' boss. The Director of the School. Fancy company. Michael wowed them with his tales of Star Wars and even told them how cool ... or uncool they were. Honesty is a virtue, right? Right.

I am going to try to keep up with this blog once a week. Especially now that summer is here - it should be no problem. We are also going on some fun trips, so we will have many adventures to share.

no pressure...just great to hear from you! I know what you mean about the mixed feelings with summer approaching. On the one hand, I am ready for a break, but by the end of the summer, I am craving structure!

Looking forward to at least a weekly ya like chocolate!

i'm Cindy's cousin John from NJ. I check her blog pretty regularly..and then follow the links to you, Liz and Kim. My advice is..don't write to please your buds. Your weekly idea is a good one.Instead of pressuring yourself to be funny or cute or even interesting..just approach it as a great place to summarize the activities and feelings that engaged you for that week. It's a great tool for that. Even if no one read it..a year from now you could look back on a particular week..and know for sure where you were..literally and figuratively. Our memories tend to get fuzzy, or exaggerated with time. A blog, or a written journal keeps things in perspective. Good luck with it.
