This is nothing

I started this blog a week shy of two years ago.  I'm not totally sure what I hoped to accomplish by keeping it.  Before I moved here--but after I had accepted a job-- I was fortunate enough to make contact with an individual who not only taught for Language Link, but was actually located in the same suburb of Mytishchi that I was to be living in.  He kept a blog that, in many ways, helped to prepare me for what was to come.  His blog was a no holds barred combination of historical fact, day-to-day life, his own past experiences, and teaching.

But enough of that.  When I started The Rheal World (naming credit to my dear friend Chloe), I probably hoped that I could offer the same insight to what life was like living in the Moscow area and teaching for LL, which I feel like I achieved on at least a small level.  I'm more than happy to field questions from strangers, by the way; just leave me a comment with a way to contact you.  I also wanted to have some kind of documentation of what my life was like during this period of time.

And that brings me to now: I've lost interest in posting here.  I don't understand who reads this now, or why; maybe not knowing my audience has landed me in a state of just not knowing what to say.  I have friends here with blogs I adore: Like Mae's, or Kristen's, and of course Miss Polly's.  But my own blog has lost interest to me.  While I'm a strong writer, this isn't exactly the environment I thrive in.  More than anything, after two years of living here my life isn't much of an adventure these days.  So that's that.  I'm working on ideas for future blog posts.
