On Sabbatical

For the past 10 years, I've relied on social media for most of my socialising and communication. My time on G+ in particular has been incredibly fulfilling, and I've met a lot of really great people in the 3.5 years that I've been here. 

But things change and I think, for me, it's time to step away—at least for awhile. My idea is that'll I've give myself a year off to reconnect with myself. Maybe without this... (beautiful, wonderful, glorious, time-consuming) crutch, I can finally finish mourning the losses that I've never recovered from, put them behind me for good, and learn to accept and embrace where my life's journey has taken me. Maybe, I can figure out how to forgive myself. Maybe—just maybe—I can even learn to be my own best friend again. 

Maybe.

Bright blessings to all of you who have been such an incredible part of my G+ experience. Thank you for allowing me to share my thoughts with you. Y'all take care, and maybe—just maybe—I'll see you again in 2016.

Introduction
A native Texan living in England, I am a writer who is well-versed in both British and American English. My skills include scriptwriting, article writing and editing, turning technical content into user-friendly material, and developing material for marketing and promotional campaigns. I also have extensive experience with editing scientific and academic works for publication, research and writing online content for SEO purposes, blogging (including ghost blogging), promotion through social networking, and creating templates and formatting documents in PowerPoint and Word. While my university studies focussed primarily on English literature, writing, and psychology, my education is ongoing. Always studying or researching something, I regularly participate in online university courses, with topics ranging from social science to world history.

My hobbies include reading, writing poetry and fiction, photography, and PC and console gaming. I am also a huge science fiction fan. Quote Firefly and I'll follow you anywhere...

*I am currently on a personal, one year social media sabbatical, which means all of my personal social accounts (excluding LinkedIn) have either been deactivated or closed. See you in 2016.*
