Hi All my two readers (maybe three, since I know my mom occasionally reads it) who have stuck with this blog and its lack of posts. I just cannot find enough hours in the day to post on this blog.
I am in the classroom or lab for over 20 hours a week, I am slated to work my part-time job for 20+ hours a week, and this is not including the crazy commute time of Oahu traffic. Teaching two college courses also means grading and creating curriculum. I think that it takes up a bunch of my time because I care too much and I want my students to learn as much as possible. Then I choose to spend my free time playing with my daughter and getting her ready for the day and night.
Maybe I'll post once every couple of months (if you use a Reader, it will be easier to see if a sporadic post pops up). Maybe I'll switch to Tumblr and post random notes and pictures of food. Maybe I'll just post pictures of the food that my students cook in class because I certainly have not been cooking or baking very much. Mike has been stepping it up and our daughter probably will be a bit confused on stereotypical gender roles. She'll tell her classmates, "No, daddy has a full time job, yet he cooks and cleans too." So can you see why I do not have free time? If I did, I would try to help Mike out a bit more.
Although this past January has been super duper busy, I think it may get worse or at least a bit more er...challenging. A new opportunity has fortuitously been thrust my way and I really think that I could help Hawaii out... and it's related to food and people.
On a personal front, there are new adventures in store for us...2014 might be the year that we make a big purchase....here's a hint, it rhymes with "mouse."(yeah, cheesy I know). I am very fortunate to be given these opportunities and am super stoked at what is in store for the rest of the year. Lots of new changes and things to look forward to.
