Let's Skip the Awkwardness...

Let's just not talk about how long I've been gone.  Let's just not do that.

Instead, I think I'll just jump right in like I've never been gone. Sound good? Good.

Here are some topics we need to catch up on…yoga, school, writing, Germany, reading, did I miss anything?

So, yoga.  Yes, yoga.  I've started volunteering as an instructor at the gym on post.  I've taken the small first portion of my teacher training and I have a long way to go, but guys, how did this happen!  Seriously, within two months I vocalized the desire to teach yoga and bam, here I am.  It's been an awesome journey so far, and I feel so incredibly blessed for this opportunity.

School!  I have ONE class left.  Eeeep!  I have senioritis hardcore along with that "what now?" fear.  For those who don't know: I'm set to graduate with my Bachelor's in Creative Writing in May.

Writing.  So, the good news on the writing biz is that I've successfully started a writing group in the area.  I've found some other novelists and even some NaNo'ers.  It's amazing how quickly the writers will come out of the woodwork once you put the bait out there.  Every one has a writer inside.
As for my writing…the book is slow moving and I'm missing something in terms of motivation that I'm working on.  It's pretty much finished and needs heavy (HEAVY) revisions, but it's getting there.

Germany.  Life is good.  I've managed to make some amazing friends and although it's not really "home" in the same sense that other places have been, we're still happy and comfortable here.  We have some trips planned over spring and summer and we're always eager to soak up the culture (read: beer and food).

Reading.  Oh it's been bad. Very, very bad.  I can't tell you the last book I finished, guys.  I read everyday and I've been trying so hard to get into anything, but it's all coming up short.  It's been like speed dating, really.  I've started and ditched too many to count.  It's okay, I've built up a healthy obsession with BBC's Sherlock to compensate.

As for the book chat…let's take baby steps for now.  I tried to jump back into blogging and the book chat before and it backfired.  We're going to take this slowly.

I think that's all for now.  I'm excited to dive back into blog reading and see what you've all been up to. I have no idea where this blog is headed for now, but I feel like it's going to be something new and different than before.

Oh yes, and Jeremy and the boys are all doing well.  Guess I should mention that, huh?

Oh you have so much going on! No wonder you have been away a while! Sherlock was filmed around my work building, I love watching it and thinking ooh I saw that bit! Good that you're back :)

Welcome back!! Glad to see things are good in Germany. And I didn't know you were training to be a yoga teacher - that's pretty awesome!

It's good to see you back! I've been following you on Twitter and Instagram so I know how busy you've been. So much excitement going on! But at least it's been the best kind of absence. It looks like you've had a lot of fun with your boys (so cute!), and Germany seems full of beautiful places to visit!
