New blog topics

I originally started this blog over two years ago under the theory that my life is just as interesting as anyone else's. (I also thought that blogging about my weight loss efforts might be an additional motivator.) Based on what I've written here in 300+ posts, I now think that both premises are debatable. ;-)
I know I've mentioned here on more than one occasion that I hate how boring my blog entries are sometimes. . . . and lately *I* don't even want to read them! So I've decided I'm going to change things up a bit.
As I've said in my last two posts, I've been feeling a bit disenchanted with work at the moment. I guess one could say the bloom is off the rose in my current position. I will say that this is about par for the course with me; in fact, eight months with no real complaints about a job may be some kind of record for me. LOL. Yes, I have had many adult jobs: I worked for five different employers (at 10 different hospitals) in seven years as a nurse, and have now had two jobs as a lawyer, not including summer or temporary jobs (I had 4 of those, too). I'm always searching for that "right fit."
One of the career-related dreams I had long ago (say, age 8 or 9) was to be a writer. One of several things that's held me back from pursuing that dream is a lack of creative ideas. I've always been good at expressing my thoughts in words--even in elementary school--but I am not particularly inventive. What would I write about?
My friend KKL has often told me that my love life would make a good book. So I'm going to kind-of put her theory to the test in this blog.
Although I know I don't have the self-discipline or the time to write about this topic every day, I am going to start blogging about some of my past loves and other situations with men. I will admit that several of them are the kind of stories that will probably be entertaining in the retelling. At least, over the years, as I've shared them with friends, they certainly seemed to find them amusing.
I know I can tell a good story face-to-face, and I know I can produce a good written product at work. It remains to be seen whether I can write well when the topic is the kind of thing I'd usually only talk about.

Hey there... can't wait to read what the next phase of this blog has in store!!

I got your comment about meeting up for a drink. UnFORtunately, I don't think it's going to work out this time (I'm there for a very short amount of time, and it's packed-full with a trip to the Grand Canyon and a spa day with my mom and such), but never fear -- I will be back! I have a few great friends in AZ who I really want to see more of!
