Peer Pressure

I cannot believe how quickly I fell to the pressure of my sisters to create a blog. They've recently jumped on the bandwagon and I guess I just have a hard time feeling left out of their particular sorority...so here I am. Maybe I'll develop the thirst for posting they all seem to possess, and if not... I just won't post as often as them!

I guess it's customary to begin your blog with a bit of an "about me" post. Unlike my sisters, I am not married. Sometimes I wish I were but for the most part I enjoy the freedom of being single and figure as long as I'm without an EC, I should enjoy the time to myself. (BTW, you're catching me on a good day. Sometimes I suffer from the love bug just like many of the girls I often ridicule...)

I'm a senior in college studying history, and if all goes well, I should walk in graduation this April and finish classes in June. For a long time I assumed that I would start teaching as soon as I graduate (more on that in a bit), but lately I'm not so sure of that. With a lot of life decisions lying ahead of me I find my life in somewhat of a limbo, hence the clever blog name.

Other tidbits: I coach a local high school cheerleading squad and work as a teller at a major bank. When I planned to teach, it was primarily a ruse through which to allow myself to keep coaching and only secondarily because I honestly think teaching would be extremely rewarding. At the bank, I just passed my teller "Final Exam" with a 95% yesterday, which means they'll trust me with my own drawer of money now. I've been in training all month and so far feel like I'll really like this job and the people I'll work with.

Hmm...is this too long for an intro post? I'm new to blog rules and I have a tendency to be long-winded, which is proving to be a bad combination right now. So for today I'll say tata and we'll see where this blog craze leads me!

Good luck with living in limbo--I'm excited to see how things turn out with you. My parents are starting to ask questions involving words like "job" and "after you graduate" too-- I think this means that we should all escape on a road trip to Brazil. . .

Hey! Finally found you! Welcome to the happy bloggy world.

About that road trip to Brazil...I think it could be awesome...

Also, I'm glad you have a blog. :)
