Signing Off & Moving On

For those of you still reading or checking in here, despite my lack of posting in six months, thank you!  When I first started blogging in April 2009, I was a college senior at the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse about to embark on a journey of living and teaching abroad in Cali, Colombia for three years. That experience led to many adventures, great friends, incredible travel experiences and invaluable life lessons - all of which you can read about on this blog.

However, upon returning home to Minnesota in June 2012, I needed to find a new home for my writing. After a semester of re-adjusting to life back in the United States, it's time I finally created that new online space. Friends and readers alike have been asking me about the future of my blog/writing over the last few months, so after several conversations, I decided to create Outside the Lines.

The nature of the blog - what I will write about, how often I will write, etc. are still kind of up in the air. However, I don't want to get caught in the trap of "I don't have anything to say" and/or the (very real) feeling that the longer I put something off, the harder it is to begin again. So without knowing all the answers up front, I am just going to start. I hope you will join me there as I continue to blog about transitioning back to life as a 20-something high school math teacher in Minnesota. This blog will continue to exist for the sake of the many people who still find it and use it as a resource for relocating, teaching abroad, moving or traveling to Colombia. 

Whether you are joining me for the next part of this journey, thanks for reading along for the last three years. Here's to many, many more big, bold adventures in our futures.
