So she is home, reluctantly, and equally reluctantly looking for a summer job here as well as back in Pittsburgh. Here's hoping she finds something close to home first.
I've also been trying to get a wider audience for this little blog of mine. I submitted applications to several places such as Examiner-dot-com and HuffPost, and received rejection letters which said that my writing style did not fit their needs at the present time. Form letters, but they stung. And I hung up my pencil for a while. Add the rejection letters to what's been going on in the news -- particularly the refusal of the Senate to do any meaningful gun reform -- and I was wondering what the point is of even trying to express an opinion.
And the point, of course, is that it's therapeutic for ME to vent my thoughts. I would love it if I found a wider audience, but the main thing is that I do it for me. The both of you will just have to bear with me.
