Writing about my life
To say that I am an avid blog reader would be a lie, I just pop around the internet and peruse different sites. However, now I have been inspired to write about what matters to me in my life. Maybe there will be strangers out there who can offer me a different view of what I perceive or just to tell me to get a life. But I look forward to writing and expressing myself online.
Hiding behind Internet identities: How many do we all have? Right now, I have up to 6. I post on one teacher forum under an anonymous name and another with a form of my real name. Then there is myspace.com where I am Jenny with a dog for my picture that I use only to check up on my children's myspace pages and to view those of the kids in our small town. (If other parents did this, I can only imagine their reactions). Okay, so then Livejournal beckoned based on what I read on Myspace and that can be mildly interesting to read the angst of suburban kids. My last identity is my gaming profile on Pogo.com, I am seriously addicted to playing games on line. This game playing has definitely changed my leisure time. A future blog will be a reflection of my compulsive hobbies.
Future musings--> Oldest going off to college next year, Leaving teaching after only 4 years, The state of Special Education in schools, Youth sports, Sandwich generation, Raising boys, the list can be endless.
