So, I've been on a bit of a mental break for the past few months. I've debated if I want to start the blog back up again. While reading a new Pagan book this morning, I decided it would be a good idea. This year has been a blur of constant stress. Between co-workers who treat me as an outcast because of my Pagan faith and "green" values and parents who constantly harass me because I dare to challenge their students with hard work and accountability, I've been nothing but a bundle of nerves. So, I abandoned my blog. I honestly don't know why I did it in the first place. Writing here gave me hope and understanding. I connected with many of my readers on Facebook and speak with them privately about Pagan issues. Why did I throw away my connection to what I've been looking for? I guess I couldn't balance it all. My faith doesn't bring me paycheck, teaching does. So the world of stress took over my life.
Thankfully summer has finally arrived. Today work crept in to provide me with some stress: One of the parents who gave me more grey hairs than I can count is still complaining. Her son slept through my first period class all year and how *dare* I hold him accountable for doing nothing with a failing grade. I must have some nerve. But it's done. It's over. I took care of her bitching. She got what she wanted. Hopefully my cell phone and house phone will stay quiet for the rest of the summer except for when friends come calling. I want to see pleasant people's names come across my caller ID for the remainder of the summer. School can ring me in September.
So, what does all of this mean? Is the Green Witch back?
I'm not sure where I'll begin in my writings again. I suppose talking about my house and the Pagan elements I've added around it would be a good place to start. It's the only positive I've had since I last wrote in March. I know I'll share about the Mets/Yankees game I'm going to tonight. I'll be the lone Yankees fan in a group of Mets fans.
PS - I guess my internal witch clock knows best when to start over. I just realized today is a New Moon.
