Where Have I Been & Where Am I Going?

Hello friends! It is July, and I am now 19 years of age, so it's a good time to take a deep breath, step back, and reflect on this past year and the status of this blog. I've forgotten who I've shared this blog with already, it's been ridiculous keeping up with url changes, especially with the email subscriptions. Unfortunately, you will have to resubscribe if you want to keep receiving updates. It should be fairly easy as I've double checked the feed burner settings and now I've upgraded to this shiny new URL which I intend to keep! Happy birthday to me!

I think this may be my first time publicly sharing my blog, but since a number of friends (hello Diana and Kelly) are sharing their blogs, I thought I might do so too, especially since I want to deactivate my Facebook account again soon. I'm still a bit hesitant or insecure to share this blog; it's rather private and I'd prefer not to have people poking around my thoughts. There are things on here a bit further down the blog roll that I would rather people not know about me at first glance, for fear that it could change their perception of who I am according to my carefully crafted public self (whether my perception is what I intended, I have no idea). Some of it is really old writing that I find to be immature when I read back. Then again, there are some wonderful posts that I look back on and am proud of.

To recap this summer so far, I've been in Almaden, Seattle, Berkeley, now I'm in Sacramento teaching writing at a summer program called Breakthrough. It's been amazing working with my advisees, in the picture above, even if I spent 15 hours on campus today teaching a day of classes and staying after school for Back to Breakthrough Night. The kids are phenomenal and I can't wait to see how they grow this summer. After this six week program, I'll be back in Berkeley moving in to my apartment and getting ready for sophomore year. It's crazy how quickly time flies.

That's about it, feel free to say hi in the comments, and maybe I'll see you around! ◊
