Dear Diary,

It’s been too long! I haven’t been neglecting you, I’ve just been caught up. The last 6 months have been a LOT! and I’m finally open and ready for some new connections, experiences and enterprises.

I released my book earlier in the year (yay me) and the feedback has been amazing! So yes, that’s right; I’m a published author! I can’t wait to start writing the next one!

I also decided to go back to school. I didn’t tell very many people because I didn’t want to hear any negativity…it was already a difficult decision for me to make not only because of the financial aspect, but because I hadn’t been in a classroom in so long and wasn’t sure if I would be able to endure it all over again.

Well guess what? I did it! After two back-to-back semesters of driving from one end of the city to the very next end of the city, after loads of late nights and early mornings, after sacrificing my social life and a whole host of luxuries I never used to think twice about treating myself to, I completed the classroom portion of the program.

It definitely was not easy; there were many days I questioned if I had made the right decision, but after I got back those final marks and saw that I got a ‘B’ and ‘B+’ in the classes I thought I failed, my self-esteem and confidence increased ten-fold.

So yes, I did take a bit of a break from writing because school was kicking my ass, but I’m back now and I’m super excited to begin sharing my thoughts and feelings again!
