Let me start by saying Greetings to any and everyone that takes the time to visit my blog site. I came up with my site name several days ago while substitute teaching a wonderful 5th grade class. Since they were working on metaphors, I asked each student to recite a metaphor they had learned at home that relates to achievement. One young man stated that his grandfather always says, “hitch your wagon to a star.” I loved it!
So, here I am today, embarking on new territory. Blogging! I really embraced the idea while watching Julie & Julia. It is actually a phenomenal concept. My hope is to express myself in a variety of ways. And in turn, befriend others by sharing similar and even dissimilar interests, opinions, foresights, etc.
Now, a few more specifics about me. Currently, I am a graduate student at the University of Georgia. One might ask, why is this important or worth mentioning? It is important because I am a middle age women attending a major university amid thousands of students still in their twenties. Conversely to my initial expectations, I have been welcomed with open arms and a lot of warmth. So from time to time, I will blog my experiences which I hope will encourage and inspire others to bite the bullet, so-to-speak. I have two children; both of whom are in college also. Creatively, my hobbies abound. I enjoy knitting, cooking, gardening, traveling, making jewelery, sewing, decorating especially around holidays, church, and mingling. I am socially very conscious and concerned about many of societies problems.
