Here I Go.. Again..

I guess I should start this thing out with an introduction -- I'm Molly. I live in Raleigh, NC and I've been working as a civil litigation paralegal for the past few years. I was born and raised here, but once I graduated from high school I high-tailed it to Oxford, Mississippi, where I spent 4 (or so) years loving every minute of the college life. In 2009 I graduated and moved back to Raleigh, where I've been working and living ever since. I'm an avid cooker and I'm always trying to learn new recipes (several of which I'm sure I'll be sharing here on the blog) and I also enjoy hiking, writing (obviously), photography, and traveling to new, exotic places. I'm currently single, but I'm sure I'll be sharing some dating stories on here as well, which are usually good for a laugh or two.
As for the writing component, I've started many blogs in the past, and never kept them updated.

But lately I've been reading other peoples' blogs from all different walks of life, and I've decided I want to give this thing one more try. I love the idea of sharing daily experiences, thoughts, and recollections with others, so a blog seems to be a natural choice for me. I mean, why not? If nothing else, hopefully it will help me sharpen up my writing (and photography) skills!

I'm a writer; I've always been a writer. I can't tell you how many times I've sat down and put pen to paper and let my thoughts flow. And to me, there's nothing more cathartic.

Who needs a therapist when you have the written word?

Unfortunately for my blogging tendencies, as is true for most things in my life, I'm an all-or-nothing kind of girl. I'm either writing twenty posts a day, or none at all for weeks at a time.

That seems to be a bad habit of mine. I get so consumed with one thing at one time that I can't manage to focus my energy elsewhere. And I need to get better about that.

Anyhow, I figure this thing is worth a shot. If it goes down in flames (as I'm sure it eventually will, knowing me) then no harm no foul. I just need something, if only for the moment, to keep my mind occupied and to make me feel like I'm contributing something worthwhile to.. well, the blogging world I suppose?

Here goes nothing.
