Hello *listening for the echo*

I've been away for quite sometime (writing in the dark corners of a dorm room and hunching under the every day pressures of "the real world"). Let's see, since my last post in January 2013 I have:

-Graduated with a BA in Psychology and a BFA in Creative Writing

-Interned as a social worker

-Been in my first Car Accident

-Got my first "big girl job" as a Marketing Coordinator

-Quit my first "big girl job" to move to England

-Stared working on a Master's in Creative Writing in Oxford!

I've also aged two years (but that's a given). Of course there's been more going on, but those are the big events, the memorable ones. No, I didn't become a world famous author (like I'd dreamed) or a psychologist (like I'd planned) but I have grown up quite a bit (at least, I like to think so). So over the next few posts, I'll be re-introducing myself as the Morgan two years older than the one frozen in the screen and figuring out what direction I'll be taking this blog in (self-exploration, yay!)

Has this happened to anyone else? Have you stepped away from your blog or other parts of your life and looked back on them and thought "what was I thinking?" Because that's how I feel coming here... cringing at some of my old posts and laughing at some of the others. It's like reading an old diary and feeling like a stranger. I had half a mind to delete it and start over new, but then I thought, "Where's the fun in that?" so I'm just going to pick up where I left off, a year and a half later, and see where it goes. Here's hoping it's fun!
