State of the Blog

I don’t know if there are any followers left out there, but for those who are still around, it’s quite clear that Graduate School has taken the wind out of my blogging sails.

I’d like to change that in 2016. I have more realistic goals, and I realized as I sat here debating whether or not to renew my domain, that I do want to keep this blog. It is an important part of my life and it’s helped pave my path to my current situation.

So what does that mean for the posts?

It means that there will be less of them. But they will be more in depth and, mostly, related to my current field of study. There will be a lot of works reviewed by Native American authors, a lot more non-fiction, and quite a bit of fiction as well. This semester I’m taking a Canadian Lit class, so I’ll be reviewing 14 titles by Canadian authors! I’m super excited by those.

It means, also, that I will be updating on real life things more often too. I’ve applied to five PhD programs and am crossing my fingers that acceptance (and funding) comes through. If not, there’s an adventure out there waiting for me as well. But one thing is certain – the journey through this blog, into graduate school, and life in general, has shaped my reading and understanding of so many social justice issues that.. I just can’t even say how much it’s changed me.

I’m a living example of someone who changed drastically through reading. If you ever would like to hear my story, just drop me a note.
