It’s been a long time since I shared here. Of course I’ve been writing for myself over the last two years, but in that same time, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to say to all of you. I fell in love with YouTube, but by the time I started teaching in the fall of 2020, I even fell off there. I drifted away from many of the things that brought me joy and focused primarily on surviving. And really, can you blame me? During a time filled with so much loss and uncertainty, simply getting by is taking all of my energy, and then some.

I missed you, though. So much has changed since I stopped posting regularly, and especially in the four and a half years since I created this site. My early twenties are forever immortalized here (for better or worse). My mid-twenties? Largely absent. But as I tip-toe into my late-twenties, I’m again reminded of what remains constant. Writing has always been that thing for me, especially when so much else is fluid.

While I still don’t know what I want to say, I simply want to be here, using this beautiful space I created. Welcome, or welcome back.
