Days like today remind me that there is more to life than the repetition of work and school. Days like today remind me that there are more important things in life than making a lot of money and having a high GPA. 

This past semester has beaten me senseless with the notion that school and work are the most important things. While they do score high on my priority list there are things I deem more important; things like family, friendships and doing things I love. 

I have nearly given up on writing this past semester. Aside from my weakly blog posts, it has been a struggle to write anything worth keeping, and for me that is quite possibly the worst thing in the world. 

I have neglected to put the time and effort I need to into my writing because my mind has been so absorbed with everything else, and that is a tragedy.

Writing has always been an important part of who I am and there is no way I want to give that up again. So in the spirit of perfecting your craft and doing what you love, I have decided to dedicate myself to writing this summer starting with.... blogging every day! 

I did this all last year and it was the most amazing thing I have done. I did not miss a day, not one. But the most important thing is that is not only helped me perfect my writing skills, but it also taught me how to be in the mindset of a writer. I knew I had to write every night, so during the day instead of thinking about who is posting what on Facebook, I would think about topics I could blog about. I would notice things I normally wouldn't, and think hmm I could blog about that. It made me more observational and  able to understand what can create a really good story. 

I miss that feeling. I miss those long nights of blank word docs. But I think I need to get back on the right track and enjoying myself, and blogging is going to bring me that joy. So get ready people, Blog Every Day of Summer is here!!!!
