Suppose you have been here before; you will notice some significant changes to this website and a few of my other sites. For two and a half years, I have attempted to try and maintain my sites with little success because of college. I started working on my master’s degree about three years ago. The process and journey took a toll on my free time, energy, and life.
As of May 6th, I completed my master’s degree. This last semester was the most difficult of all the years I have worked on my other degrees and programs. It was nearly impossible to complete this degree. School is hard, and it is rough on family life. After speaking with other women juggling full-time jobs, family life, and marriage, many shared the same struggle I endured these past few years.
Since graduation, I have craved to start working on my site, and it relaxes me and helps me think. Weeks after my last check on my grades and graduation, I felt hesitant as my brain was still in the mode I needed to hurry because school would start again soon. Of course, school is over, and without a doubt, there is no way you can get me to go back. I think it will take a while for my body to adjust, that I no longer need to hurry, and that I can now use my time to do whatever I want.
So, about the site… Initially, the sites started as projects for my WordPress classes. After playing around over the past few years, I kept the project and created this site (my blog) and Fifty Shades of Chaos (an interactive community site). I put so much work into it I didn’t want to drop them. It doesn’t matter to me if people join or do not become active. I am doing some of this to refocus, guide myself for the next journey, and have fun. In the process, I figured, why not share the joy with others if they are interested?
I converted Fifty Shades of Chaos into a course site (no longer for in-person or online classes) and returned to my online playland. It will be filled with activities, challenges, and random things. In the meantime, I made 50 Shades of Chaos a fun site to my satisfaction. I want it as my blog and inspirational place. I hope that someday, others who have experienced the same things I have in their lives will feel inspired and not alone. It is nice to know others have experienced similar things and felt the same emotions. The Hawaiian graphics inspire me – I adore Hawaii and the natives born there. Hawaii is my peace of mind, inspiration, and remembrance that life is good.
I hope you will join me on this new journey. There may be days it will be quiet as I refocus on real-life things (offline activities). I will be more active and enjoy the freedom to play. Some people like gaming, watching TV, or reading books, and I like messing with websites.
Thank you for taking the time to read this long post. I hope to see you again soon.
