I know the few readers I have left may be scratching their heads and saying, "Where the hell is she?"
Well no, I didn't drop off the edge of the earth. I didn't join the French Foreign Legion. I didn't sell all my things and run off and join the circus.
Nope. I went to graduate school. For the past three years I've been reading, studying, researching, interviewing and testing. But as of a couple of weeks ago that's all behind me.
I've graduated with a Master's Degree in journalism, an accomplishment I can barely believe I was able to complete. The photo above is of a bloom from a beautiful bouquet of sunflowers I got as a graduation present. I look at that photo and all the golden optimism it seems to represent makes me smile. Somehow it perfectly captures my re-energized frame of mind.
I'll write more about my school experiences in the coming weeks, but right now, I'm ready to launch back into the blogging world, breaking some boundaries with my ideas and my writing.
What does that mean for Megan's Minute?
Damned if I know.
Kind of like when I started this blog five years ago, I'm playing it by ear. I may come up with some new features, I may have some guest bloggers, I may also tinker with the design. But those changes will be gradual and as the spirit moves me.
In the meantime:
- There's a presidential election going on and I'll have a lot to say about that.
- I've been watching some amazing TV shows and I'll have a lot to say about that. ("Game of Thrones, anyone?" I'll have a review of the finale on Monday)
- I'm way behind on my non-school reading, so I'll throw in some book reviews.
- I'm still a huge tennis fan, so I'm sure I'll mention that as well.
So, I'm back. Tell your friends, and don't be a stranger.
