If you followed me here from my last blog, welcome back! If you are an entirely new reader, welcome! I needed to take a break from blogging for a bit and reinvent and refocus what I wanted my blog to be. I feel like I have been gone longer than I have, but I missed having this outlet and way to communicate with my blog friends. However, things will be different this time. I probably won't post as often, and I think I want to focus more on topical posting versus random thoughts that pop in my head. I want to write (and maybe even teach) about projects I'm working on. I want to share political opinions sometimes because this Country and the people in it are important to me. If we disagree, that is fine. We are a diverse world so I don't expect us to always see eye to eye. Most of all though, I want this blog to be a way to converse and share fun ideas, tips, and stories. I hope you'll decide to join in on this conversation because I look forward to hearing what you have to say.
