Here is the reason I started this blog
-- the girl I want to be near night and day.
I'm hoping to freelance write and teach so that I can make my own hours and raise my own daughter (as opposed to raising other people's kids, or other people raising my kid). When I told a friend of mine that that's what I was gonna do to make money, she said, "Do you have a blog?" I told her I hated blogs. She told me to get over it, that a blog would be a good way for potential employers to see my work.
But maybe she's right. Maybe blogs are more than just the ramblings of self-involved gadflies. In any case, I'm going to give it a try.
And anyway, I'm an Aries. We're known for being self-involved.
