(no subject)

So, I don't actually write in this livejournal anymore and I feel kind of odd coming back here because it's kind of like looking at someone else's life - I wrote very freely here and did not feel afraid of being judged or called out for what I wrote.  Addmittedly, not many people read my livejournal, and very likely most of the ones I followed or was in contact with have long since left this site for other places (much like I did with Tumblr).

But there really is something so safe and comforting about livejournal.  Something much more real than Tumblr, which feels very superficial to me at times.  I don't know what it is.  Maybe the amount of older people here?  Maybe I'm mistaken.  I was not particularly involved in groups or things here, so I don't know how many young pre-teen types there are around here.  It just seems better.

I am planning to become more active here again.  Continue making graphics and things that made me happy before.  This is not to say that I'm not happy now.  I think I'm currently at one of the happiest points in my life.  Everything feels good and everything is falling into place.  But that's not to say that I can't come back to things that I loved about my life from years before.

A general update on my life...

  • I finished a third year up at my small rural school as band and choir teacher, and have resigned so that I can return to school to pursue a Master's of Music Education.  It was incredibly difficult leaving all of my kids and having to tell them I won't be back next year, but I know this is the best step for myself and my life.

  • I am still with the guy I mentioned in 2011.  I find new things I love about him all the time, but I have to say I really am lucky to have someone so openminded and positive as a partner.  And he loves my horse, so that is a huge plus.

  • Last year I bought a horse.  He's a shire/thoroughbred cross - Navigator.  I think I mentioned him before.  I was working with him for a few years before finally buying him.
