I know that for many visitors in the last 10 months, this site seems like it has been abandoned. I can assure you completely that it has not. You see, I am a teacher by trade, and since January of 2014 I have been working on a Masters Degree in education. This degree is an accelerated one and it has consumed all of my waking hours since I began it those long months ago. It has been incredibly rewarding, I am a significantly better teacher now than I was before I began, and in spite of the incredibly intense workload, I have enjoyed it a lot.
But the reality of trying to work full time, go to school, have a family, and make terrain is simply too much. I do miss this hobby terribly, and I cannot wait until my program is over and I can unearth my workshop from the dust that has been accumulating on it these last 10 months.
The end date for my degree is February 28, 2015. This means that March 1, 2015 will be my first day of freedom. I look forward to getting back to work on the many projects that sit unfinished on my workbench or yet to be commenced in my head.
So please do not give up on me, and check back in a couple of months to see all of the wonderful progress I will begin to make at that time. I know that I, for one, cannot wait!
