It has been a while since I have done any writing here. I took some time to explore my world and what I want to do. It has been a really interesting fall and winter working through the process of beginning to get a grip on my disability. I have made some progress and increased my overall happiness with who I am and where I am going.
The who I am part is extremely complicated. That is something I have known, and now that I am starting to dig around in it, I have found that the depths of who I am are starting to make String Theory look like child’s play. Trying to unwind this mess of what I am, how I got to be where I am, and who I want to be is challenging at best.
Where I am going is a bit simpler. My goals in life are well defined now. I want to move into academics and research in information technology. I am currently working on my MSIT in Enterprise Software Architecture. I am working on a couple of journal articles and scribbling down some ideas for research projects. I already enjoy the time I spend teaching and mentoring others in the workplace, so teaching at a college level will definitely be rewarding.
The biggest challenge in getting there is keeping myself on track and starting to put myself out there. Although I have said it before, I need to start blogging more regularly and interacting with my peers more. I really hope to start generating some useful material and feedback. My goal is to start making at least two posts a week on any topic. The feedback hopefully will come as become more prolific.
