Today’s daily prompt : When you started your blog, did you set any goals? Have you achieved them? Have they changed at all?
When I started my first blog, Mixing Chicory, a few months ago I did it as a lifeline to get through the burnout of my current job. I had been getting rejected from one PhD program after another, and I thought that writing this blog may satisfy my longing to conduct research. It has intentionally kept me connected with my field and kept me questioning relationships and theories. The positive vein of golden ore that I did not expect to find is that, by keeping up Mixing Chicory, I’ve been feeling as though I’m still working towards my ultimate professional calling, though I’m not beginning PhD just yet.
This blog, I Didn’t Just Wake Up This Morning With a Craving, is meant to be a more fun one, one through which I can answer daily prompts and with which I can be more creative, like a word canvass. Thanks for reading!
