It’s been a long time coming

…but I haven’t fallen off the face of the Earth. I don’t have much time to post semi-polished blog entries, so I thought I’d just go with a little personal update. I’ve been insanely busy and stressed. For some reason I thought that once I got a job the stress would magically go away. Wrong. Between finishing my dissertation, buying a house in East Stroudsburg, PA (my soon-to-be home), preparing the syllabi for my upcoming classes at East Stroudsburg University, and dealing with all of the many hassles of preparing to move; my stress is through the roof. Somehow I doubt that it will be coming down anytime soon. At the same time, I’m pleased to say that I’m excited about my upcoming move, my new job, my new house, and the people that I’ve met in East Stroudsburg so far. I’m beginning a new chapter in my life, and I couldn’t be more thrilled–that is when I’m not paralyzed with fear. 🙂 Seriously, my future seems bright, and I’m grateful. I hope to begin blogging again soon. Until then…take care and don’t forget about me. 🙂
