Gearing Up for Gonzaga

Just a little over a week ago I was celebrating the fact that I completed my first year in Gonzaga University's Communication and Leadership Program . I still remember the semester's intense moments. I wasn't quite sure how I was going to manage my course load with work and becoming a new homeowner, but I managed. Spring has finally arrived and while many students across our nation have graduated, or are looking forward to graduation, I've already started my next two courses in Diversity and Leadership and a Communications Practicum. Gonzaga's campus as the sun sets. Initially, I wasn't looking forward to summer courses, but as part of my course work I get to visit the university. That's a definite plus in my mind. I love to travel and see places I've never been. This Sunday I will fly to Spokane, Washington. It will be my first trip to the state.

Long Over Due Post

This post is long over due. Yet again, I've fallen off my writing horse and feel the need to own up to my lack of focus on the writing front. I'm not going to beat myself up like I tend to do, instead I just need to break the pattern. I'm not sure if it is because spring is here and I have this need to spring into some writing action or it's the realization that I'm half-way through 2012 and I'm not making the progress I envisioned back in January. Truth be told, I think it's a bit of both. I've come to see that even the layout for Blogger has changed. I'm not sure if I like it, time will tell. Since I've starting blogging I have noticed a few individuals that I follow have switched their blogs to Wordpress  and have been contemplating the change myself. I'm still on the fence about it. If you're a blogger who has made the switch from Blogger to Wordpress I'd be interested in hearing you feedback on the transition. In some mor
