The Return

It has been so long since I have last posted. I would have said written, but honestly, once you write, you always continue writing in one form or another.

I look at the vivacious style of previous posts, and think, it has changed so much. However, in truth, I have changed so much! I have grown up, and grown weary, and hopefully wise. But there are always new adventures on the horizon!

Over the past several years, I held my first real job as a public librarian. I gained a mean and gritty perspective on the world from a bastion of literature and idealism. It was a place where the best intentions of society clashed with its very real illnesses.

After a couple of years, I decided it was time to make a more meaningful impact on the world around me, and I went off to study nursing in Sin City. Exhaustive work made me weary of books, while the desert paradise urged me to indulge in long, hot nights devoted to dance and drink. I survived the gaudy glitz and glamour, to begin a career dedicated to compassionate care. I graduated, returned to the nest and wallowed in a limbo between licensing and my first job, comparable to the one several years earlier. Now that I had found my life-long carrier, my parents pressured me to find my life-long partner. That time period was not uneventful. After a few hits and misses, on both the career and relationship fronts of life, I eased into a very eventful and eye-opening job as an emergency room nurse, and found The One. As of now, I am taking a break from work to focus on wedding preparations--a whole new world in and of itself.

So here's to chronicling this series of misadventures!
