Back From the Abyss

So it’s been a while. I know. There’s something about blogging that just keeps me from being consistent at posting. Some days I just have nothing to say, and others my mind races with the possibilities. I have missed my little piece of the internet, though, and I have had so many things in the past few weeks that could have made/could make excellent posts. However, I have just been so exhausted my brain cannot form the words to write. In fact, I am currently trying to warm myself back up after loading my car in a torrential downpour with the temperature hovering below 50 degrees. Wet and cold. Now that calls for a glass of wine. Or three.

The previous statement probably made no sense as I’ve offered no explanation of my job or what I do at all. It’s easy to say “oh, I’m an admissions counselor for the University of Houston,” but that could not possibly describe what I do completely. Remember when you were in high school and you had a “college fair night?” The people at those booths? That’s me. But the thing you don’t realize is that the person behind that booth did not magically appear; they had to travel there with a car load full of all the materials that are on their table and if it was raining they hauled it all in while getting drenched. It can be miserable. But I wouldn’t trade it for anything.

I promise to tell you more later; in my three months on the job, I have met some of the most ridiculously stupid people you could ever imagine. But for now, I need to get to sleep. I’ll change lives tomorrow.

Or crush dreams.
