Bad habits: talking about myself, giving unsolicited advice
Why I'm blogging: talking about myself, giving unsolicited advice
Really, why I'm blogging: I love to write.  I miss writing.  When I was younger I was an avid journaler, then I switched to all academic writing and I loved that, but now I do neither.  I'm looking for a way to combine it - something in between stream of consciousness and structured essay.  Also, I'm an efficiency fiend . . . as a teacher I was obsessed with streamlining processes, organizing people/things, and helping kids to understand how to succeed at life.  Now I have no one to force my wisdom upon.  So unsolicited advice is born.  It won't always be advice, but with some mix of opinions/thoughts/musings I figure there will be some kind of point in there somewhere.
