A is for Alpha

Here we go!  I have been anticipating this day for the last two weeks.  When I learned about the A-to-Z challenge I thought "what a perfect way to draw a line in the sand" and declare "this is the beginning of a new day." A is for alpha - the first letter of the Greek alphabet - synonymous with "beginning."

One thing I have learned along the way is that life is seasonal and I sense a new season on the horizon.  I have been a stay-at-home mom for the last twenty years and even though we still have two children at home (13 and 15), I am looking for a new beginning.  Recently, I finished a master's degree in Library and Information Science with the intention of working in information management for a business/corporation or possibly working in an academic library.  I am hopeful that something will materialize soon!

While I do not have a theme for this blog, my purpose for beginning this blog is to see what emerges by the end of the month - I expect this blog to be a little of this and a little of that and will reflect my varied interests (thus the title).  I am new to blogging so I hope to learn a lot along the way and with this challenge hope to make some new friends.


  1. Welcome to the blogging world! Awesome post (and blog hop/challenge) to start off with.

  2. This is my first time doing the A to Z (though I have done NaBloPoMo), and I'm excited as well. I like the challenge of writing to the letter but still writing something that is my voice.

  3. Hi there! Sounds like you are on the cusp of something BIG! Congrats on your degree and I look forward to seeing what the rest of April bring in this A to Z challenge.
