I’m not talking about the love affair, or the indulgence into chocolate while on a diet, type cheating – I’m cheating…ON MY BLOG!
I’m back again with my favorite professor of all time, and hopefully he’s not sick of me yet, especially since I have him in the Spring, but the class is a writing class. And I love it.
We started blogs today.
I’m excited because the class is going to challenge me to write to audiences I’m unfamiliar with. Moreover, it’s going to put me in an awkward situation of seeing the people in person that will be reading my posts. That loving, and protecting, boundary of the computer screen to the unknown world is … so comforting. I don’t have that anymore, and it makes me ridiculously nervous.
We were supposed to write on something that we are passionate about – but those things are taboo for me to write about – mainly because I didn’t want to be water boarded by my students in the class. Saying things like “Cathy is a hypocrite” and “I’m pro-choice, not pro-abortion” and “I think gays are entitled to the same rights as heterosexuals” and “organized religion sucks” may have earned me a few spikes to stick my head on in that class. So I decided to write instead of the biggest problem I have – – taking on the weight of the world.
I do feel like I’m cheating on my blog – because A day after i’s my baby and has been so faithful – but I guess there’s always times to venture…so what do you think?
I’ll be posting there, and here, of course. I’m just…movin’ round!
