Are blogs still a thing?
Or even relevant anymore? I wrote a draft of a post about this on Christmas day 2015, that I never published, and I want to revisit this theme. I started this blog in 2015? 2016? IDK, right after Diego and I got married, and he was still in Mexico and I was in my DNP program. It was just sitting here already created and everything, so I am going to start using it again. Ain't fixinta start a new page if this old one is here and works just fine...
I am going to start blogging again, even if this is just for me and 3 other people to read (probably just my mom and my sisters, which I would be lucky to have), I had a "mildly successful blog" (a hilarious joke, because the most views I ever got was maybe...like almost 100, and all the extra traffic I ever got were my mom's quilt followers, and my sister's fabric/quilt followers, and thank y'all so much for viewing my blog that one time) while I was in nursing school approx 11 years ago, and then I deleted it a few years later. Part of me wishes that it still lived somewhere in the depths of the internet, but it doesn't. The internet was a much simpler place in the early 2010's, and those were my prime blogging days. But guess what, Melysses S. Grant is dusting off her keyboard and getting back out on these internet streets y'all.
I need to process my thoughts and feelings re losing my dad (he died barely 2 months ago), what is like to be in an international marriage, what it is like to have a wild 2 year old, work life balance, and being a nurse midwife/ women's health nurse practitioner in a wild world that's falling apart. If you have any interest in participating in this stream of consciousness, you are welcome here. If you don't want to read my run on sentences, or excessive use of the oxford comma, and occasional swears, then with all the love in my heart kindly GTFO. If you can tolerate those things and are along for the ride, then welcome I am so glad you're here. I'm glad to be back.
LOVE YOU SO MUCH,
Melysses s. Grant
