Blogging What I've learned

I've learned it's very difficult to sit down and put you're thoughts into words and get the meaning that you desire. It's hard to find the time and the energy. Especially when my two year old is climbing up my lap screaming "MY TURN!" It's hard to make yourself sit there and write something no matter what. I am freely admitting that I did a very poor job of doing this daily. Maybe, that's the reason that I didn't not get that much out of this writing assignment. I didn't really see what the point was. Why write something when you know no one is going  to read it? I suppose for my own mental sanity. It did help to resolve some own issues going on in my head, but I don't think I learned anything in doing this. I didn't learn to better my grammar or expand my vocabulary, The two things I need the most help in. Maybe I would have learned how to better these things if I had some feed back but as I said no one even read my posts.


  1. Good reflection. Children make college a challenge, but also make college worth it. You will inspire them! ~Ms. A.

  2. I know it's been a bit since you've posted a blog, but perhaps you'll get this comment. I'm not preaching, but... writing is good for you. Sometimes, things will come out when you're writing that you may not have even realized you were thinking. It's freeing in a way. For me, it's hard writing when I KNOW people will read it, because I don't want to be judged on what's going on inside of me. EVEN if I write something totally from imagination. I don't put that stuff out there yet. I'm not secure enough with the interest levels. As far as going to school, being married, and raising children... it's tough. It's even harder doing it as a single mom, but I can't tell you how it feels to finally finish and know that you have a future waiting, and to know that no matter what, you will be okay, because you've carved a spot for yourself. It IS important in the long run, though in the short run, it may seem like you're fighting an uphill battle. Good luck and I hope you write some more at some point!
