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.
