I've been thinking about what I'd like to do with the blog, and where I'd like it to go.
The thing I keep thinking about as I approach my fifty-third birthday is that there is less and less time. If there are things I want to do, or be, or to achieve, the time has to be now.
With that in mind, I registered at the University of the People. I will be working towards my bachelor's degree in business administration. I completed my Associate's degree in 2008, but I always wanted to keep going.
UoPeople isn't just any school. It is a tuition-free online accredited university. UoPeople is revolutionary and ground-breaking, and I am SO FREAKING EXCITED to be part of it! Since I plan to take you on this journey with me, I added a blog category for UoPeople. It will soon be getting its own page, too.
Social Justice, specifically anti-racism work, is another area of my life that deserves more attention. I attended a couple of the recent protests locally, but there is a lot more we (and by 'we' I mean white people) need to do. One way I can help is by using the blog to help share resources, and amplify other voices. I've added a couple of categories for those posts, too, and yes, the architecture of the blog will be changing to support this focus.
I'll still blog about writing and family life, and random things that bring me joy, because why not? But as I incorporate the changes mentioned above I will probably be archiving or re-arranging some of the older material.
If you want to read how I decided what the blog should be about back in the day, you can do so here.
