Yep, you guessed it, erica's on another snow day, so she came up with a blog post. (no, not really, this one's been bothering me for awhile).
I worry about a lot of things. Some of them are justified (like when I bypass a bill's due date because I'm waiting for my paycheck to come through) and some less so (like when I think christy might be mad that I didn't send her a chapter or a critique in time even though I know she understands my lack of time perception, haha). I actually spent an entire day worrying that I worry too much. Yep.
In the past week, though, I had a big worry. One that might make me change jobs. And if there's one thing people who know me, know about me, it's that I seriously love my job. Teaching is what I do. But -
**pause for great big tears**
**I was going to start typing again but my tears are still really big and I can't see, so I'm going by my keyboarding skills right now** **plus my mom called and interrupted what I was typing and told me what a wonderful person and teacher I am and the tears got even bigger** **dang moms anyway**
Okay. Deep breath. Moving on.
Sometimes investing your life to do what you really love can result in heartbreak (even after 17 years of doing it). If anyone can relate to that, it's my fellow writers. I love that all of you are working so hard toward your goals to become published authors - and that many of you have achieved it!!
If you have a blog or book link, paste it in below. If you've done something as accomplished as talking and chewing bubble gum at the same time - or even drinking through a straw without choking, paste it below! I want to know!!! OR - goals, anyone? (not to be confused with resolutions - those things are slippery) (fyi - we got like 4 inches of snow. total waste of a snow day here in WI)
