  1. Goals met, goals surpassed.

    Four and a half months ahead of schedule, I have finished reading my 52 book goal...Really 54 because I had the time today.

    Sort of. Three of the books are repeats, but they were 2-3 years ago and I read them (and appreciate them) much more a second time around. So I guess technically I still have more work to do.

    Since my last blog:

    Books

    The Wolf On The Run
    The Wolf At War
    Childhood’s End
    SW HR Rising Storm

  4. My "Retirement"

    Enough people have asked so....Let's try to keep this as un-dramatic as possible.

    To make a long story really short...Recent developments in my life has made it really difficult to continue being a staffer. I was recently hired in a teaching job (hooray!) but coming into it halfway in the year has given me a great deal of anxiety, which has led to some health issues popping up. I was already suffering some issues in the month prior to being hired (and I "felt" they were coming ...

  5. A Year In Review

    Man what a year.

    Since the last time I have written a blog my life has changed a lot. The biggest change was being told I was not being invited back to teach at the school that hired me a year ago. While I never found out the reason, I suspect they just did not feel I could improve enough to justify another year.
