Not that I expect anyone to really care, but here it is anyway, the reasons I've been away for so long:
1. Making my way through my last semester and student internship so that I can get my teaching license.
2. Procreating yet again with my lovely wife. Child #3 is due any day now.
3. Volunteering at a local school that is sadly lacking a Theatre department, yet has an AWESOME facility for it.
Note: Above mentioned volunteering is not entirely altruistic. I do so in the hopes of reviving their Theatre dept. and then, of course, applying for the job when it opens up.
On the subject of Theatre, the project I've been working on had it's semi-culmination this morning in the opening of the show. It went great, got laughs and kept students' attention, and hopefully will, over the next week of performances, inspire enough of them to register for Theatre classes next year to justify hiring a Theatre teacher (the position for which I will be applying mentioned above).
It may not take up a lot of space written out like this, but believe me, it's kept me PLENTY busy!
Anyway, it's good to be back and I hope to wander around the community here a bit more and get to know more folks.
That's all for now!
