I live in a growing town in East Texas and for 18 years I got to teach my favorite subject: English. I loved everything about it: teaching it, reading it, writing it, reading about writing it. I have recently resigned my college teaching position and gone back to school for a nursing degree. It is crazy. It is intense. It is hard. But hard is not the same thing as bad. The hard is what makes it great, to steal a line from A League of Their Own. I have a large family and a small life, but a lot of life experiences.
