happy birthday to my little blog
Yes, folks, knit me more time is a year old today! A year ago I trepidatiously started a blog. Reflecting back on those early entries now, I can see how much and how little has changed, both in my life and in my blogging style.
In terms of my blogging style, I am more "public" than I ever imagined. Although this has been wonderful and I have made some great new blogger friends (in person and through blogs) I am sometimes more careful about what I post now than I was in the beginning when I used to post more recklessly. That's not to say my blog isn't raw and personal- sometimes I post things and read it later and can't even believe I said all that. But, that's what blogging is all about and I kind of like it.
In terms of my life, well, I kind of laughed just now when I read some of my beginning posts from this time last year. That was the time of the brilliant study-for-prelim-and-write-masters plan. I remember distinctly last summer at this time totally loosing it because I had the prelim, the masters, and hourly work on a project to do. Let me tell you that now I see I didn't have it so bad, and that in the past year I have gained more mastery of doing tons of things at once (yay!). Going into this summer, I have a 20 hour a week job, hourly work on three projects, a prelim to study for and an article to finish. And I'm not panicking. I know with some insane calmness that it will all get done. Sooner or later, things will get done. And this summer we have a canoe. And new found friends in the women who live across the street. So despite the how packed this summer is with work, I will sneak in hours of paddling and BBQing that will be wonderful.
so happy birthday blog. let's see if this lasts another year...
