Hello peeps. The last time I posted something personal, I discussed beginning my Ph.D. program. I’m two quarters in, and I can’t juggle everything. I receive two job offers this summer, so I am now teaching at the university I have been with since 2015 and an additional college. That’s four days of work a week, plus grading and other essential functions. Besides that, I’m a wife and mom. I’m a friend and a daughter. In order to prioritize, the Ph.D. has to be put on hold. I’m okay with that. After all, I want my family and friends to remember me for spending time with them, not for having a nose in a book (which is what I have done all summer). Things may change between here and the first of the year, but I highly doubt it. I am going back to my first love: fiction. I miss writing fiction more than I can even explain. So, I am already picking up where I left off with my Between Worlds Series.
There are a few more weeks of scheduled posts coming, and then I will post this quarter’s work, but thereafter, it’s back to fictional writing and posting for me. I am NOT Wonder Woman. As much as I would like to be able to handle three jobs (I was also given a teaching assistant position for the Ph.D. program), being a wife, a mom, spending time with my family and friends, fitting appointments in there, and trying to find time to sleep, I can’t. Something has to go. For me, it’s the quest for higher education. However, that doesn’t mean I won’t go back to it. It may just be temporary.
So, thanks for reading my scholarly stuff! Fiction will be on the way very soon!
