Month: October 2011

Back from hiatus

It’s been a LONG time (three months!) since my last post.

What’s been happening? Well, we did end up buying a new home. And I’m back in school as the oldest college freshman EVER. Just call me “Jerri Blank.”

I’m happy to be back in school. But at the risk of being a buzz kill, I want to repost an entry from last year, when there were a rash of teen suicides. We’ve had the same happen this fall, for the same reasons.

Check out that old entry and my personal experience with that particular journey. And understand the costs of that kind of violence goes far beyond some kid getting teased at school. I’m happy to be doing what I’m doing and being back in a learning environment. But I wouldn’t wish that kind of delay, or hiatus, on another kid.
