2021 In Search of Fresh Dirt

Good day all!

My last blog post was written in June. I lost all motivation for pleasure writing this year or I was just exhausted or both. I am a teacher at a community college and every waking minute was spent tracking down students, creating virtual content, and just trying to keep my head above water. Hiking is my antidepressant and an antidepressant needs to be taken regularly, like any prescribed medicine. Hiking became sporadic in 2020 and that hit me hard. In addition, I was teaching in front of a computer, not walking around a classroom, so even that little bit of exercise was squashed. 2020 was a shit year…let’s move on. 😀

This year, even though still living with the pandemic, I hope to explore more of western Maryland. I am also setting a schedule for updating the Girl Gone Hiking Blog. I like to write…not particularly adept at it…but I like it and that is enough. It is enough for any of us, actually. If you like to draw, or sing, or do math, or walk, or do whatever, then please, for all our sake’s, DO IT! If 2020 has shown us anything it is that life is always shorter than expected and reality is crafted by each of us. So, make art, sing loudly, calculate away…and as always, Hike on!

    Nice to hear from you! Yup. 2020 was Awful! I’m hoping to get a lot more hiking in this year.

    YES, I hiked for the first time in 2 years last week. It was GLORIOUS!

    As a fellow college instructor I 100% feel your pain. I so hope we’re back to in person classes by fall. Getting very sick of lecturing to my computer screen.

    Looking forward to reading about your 2021 adventures!

      Strength to you my friend! It’s going to be another tough row of it this semester, I fear. I feel a little, emphasis on little, more prepared for this semester! 😊
