It’s so nice to be out in the world again, working amongst real live people. The Writer’s Center is a community. We all want each other to succeed, instructors, tutors, and students alike. Don’t get me wrong, I love being home wearing pajamas while I work, but I feel a little more alive working part-time in-person.
There are pros and cons to each, which of course COVID taught us all, but the mix is the balance I needed, the balance I didn’t know I wanted.
When I come home from work, I appreciate all that I have here at the house, and the inhabitants of it do, too. The pups are visibly happy to see me, and Baylee comes out to greet me at my Jeep.
Things are good right now. I wish I could rid myself of the worry of the bubble bursting, but I suppose I will always have that. Being productive, busy, and creative helps make that bubble a tad tinier, and I’ll take it.
