I'm at a point in my life where I have busted my butt working on my career all throughout my twenties and early thirties, and now I just want to slow down and start to rediscover myself and what makes me tick. I'm sort of in a position where I don't really feel like I belong anymore in many communities and I want to cultivate a new space where I can be myself again. I am myself around a very small group of people and I want to find other like minds out there in the world.
I've always thought differently and had different interests than many of my family members. It's frustrating to me that I can't share with them who I am because they are a bunch of assholes. I don't show who I really am to many people in my work life either because I am either too progressive or have different interests. For years I allowed myself to be bullied and made into an outcast at work. Now I have a really bad itch to connect with people who "get me". I think I'm at the point in my life where I have to take my quest to the internet now.
Don't get too comfortable here because soon I will be changing things up a bit. I plan on blogging on feminism, politics, books, current events, health/fitness, and any other topic that really comes to my mind this year as I learn how to life my life to its fullest. Enough already with being a workaholic--2012 will be the year of reconnecting with ME!
