As you can see I have condensed the website down moving old things to the "2017 Archives" tab up top. A massive update for my friends and follower who think that I might have disappeared: I'm still here, I haven't figured out how to turn invisible or teleport yet! All kidding aside, these last couple of years have been crazy! I am now a certified teacher and work for a magnet high school in Houston, TX. Due to the advancement of my career from substitute teacher to writing tutor to a full-fledged teacher, as well as health issues for my parents and myself I've been preoccupied. Now that I am learning to balance my health, all other things related to "adulting," and my career you will see me add to this site periodically. Speaking of site additions, I've posted chapter 2 of the web story, check it out! I would not expect there poetry posted often this year although I am writing it...I've decided to return to school for a master's degree in creative writing, therefore any new pieces I write that I feel are of publishable quality will actually be added to my portfolio for grad school applications.
