Life Happens

I feel like I'm coming to a point in my life where it's time to turn a page. I have done a lot of awesome things and traveled to a lot of places, but I'm getting older and it's time to start thinking about more serious saving money, buying a house, and finishing school. I don't have any major problems in my life, but I do have some insecurities that it's time I start to deal with instead of just escaping on a vacation like I tend to do.

Last week was spring break where I teach and it also happened to be the same week as my brother in law's break so my sister and I rented a cabin in the Red River Gorge area of Kentucky. We booked it through Red River Gorge Cabin Rentals. It was fun. The cabins weren't five star or anything like that, but for the price it was a decent deal.

My sister lives about 4 1/2 hours from me and RRG was another 4 from her place so I had a lot of time to ponder the meaning of life. I feel like I gained a lot of clarity of things that have been bothering me and for that I'm grateful. Perhaps I'll blog about some of those realizations. During that time I realized I need to start blogging more regularly, even if no one reads it, it's therapuetic for me and I'm sad I've neglected it for so long. And, it's about time to make some changes to the blog. I would love to get a new web address, but I don't think that will happen. For now, keep your eyes posted for a redesign. Originally I created this to be a travel blog, and didn't want to post too much about my daily life, but I think there is room for that. I'm a PhD student and perhaps it would be interesting to readers to know what it's like to travel through a graduate program.
