The longer I am part of this kick-a$$ blogging community, the more I want to participate in different events. I’ve always enjoyed learning about different perspectives and meeting new people, and I am learning quickly that the possibilities are endless as a blogger 🙂
Today, I would like to share a leisurely cup of Verona dark coffee (freshly ground of course) with you exactly ONE week before the end of February. Come join me for a moment for #Weekend Coffee Share 🙂
Take a seat and listen to a little Coldplay with me while we talk about our week. I treasure mornings the most because it is so quiet–the rest of the house stays up later than I do so while they sleep in, I wake up early to write and blog. I hope this moment is quiet, or at least relaxing for you.
I’ve been working on a few things when not working as a substitute teacher for the Anne Arundel District in Maryland.
I picked up the writing habit back in November via “Write Yourself Alive Challenge” that just kept going past last August. At first I just wrote and bled about my past–all the pent up feelings and memories. Then came NaNoWriMo and I completed my first (not so crappy) rough first draft, followed by joining Scribophile then WordPress Blogging University. And here I am!
I also participate in numerous flash fiction challenges during the week which are an amazing way to produce lots of new material 🙂 I haven’t won many, but that’s quite alright. I really enjoy the challenges themselves and when I produce something, I feel happy because I created it.
This past week, the brutally cold weather has caused the school district to start school two hours later than normal. We are hoping that spring will be here soon.
As a recent replant from the Midwest to Maryland, I have observed so many different cultures and perspectives that are foreign to me. I grew up in a small town and in a private school where most of the population were upper middle class, Norweigian sugar beet farmers.
Everything is so different here: people act different towards one another, accents are strange (to me), and culture is very diverse. I work primarily on a military base called Fort Meade where I am the minority and there are so many more students than what I saw in my tiny town. It is a lot to take in, but I am up for the challenge.
Well, I don’t know about you but I need another cup of coffee and some egg-in-a-hole. I really enjoyed sitting down with you for a bit.
How was your week? Anything out of the ordinary happen? Feel free to talk to me 🙂
