In August, I headed to Roanoke, Virginia to pursue "The Dream." Then I disappeared off the face of the earth for four months.
To the few people who actually read this blog, I apologize. My three excuses:
1) Grad school knocked me on my ass (I was forced to write more this semester than in the previous two years combined).
2) I began living on a $1200 per month budget (a fraction of what I subsided on before). It was quite the adjustment and suffice to say, I couldn't afford to travel as much (in retrospect I wasn't that creative...it doesn't cost a lot to travel one city/county over or explore your neighborhood). A lot of interesting revelations about money came out of that time, however.
3) I went through a faith crisis and struggled to keep on believing in my dreams and ideals. Since so much of this blog was based upon dreams and ideals, I found it hard to write when I didn't really believe what I was saying.
I will expound on these points in the next few days, but I was determined to get a post out there. More to come.
