Welcome to Sara’s Musings

I come from the world of academia. For over two decades I worked in higher education at colleges and universities, large and small, public and private, secular and Christian, and all except one was nonprofit. My area of expertise is in Student Affairs, and I held professional staff positions ranging from Academic Advisor to Director. I also worked with a variety of students (primarily adult students and graduate students) as well as staff, faculty, and administrators. Additional background information is available on my page titled, A Brief Bio,and also on my second blog, Reflections,” created in April 2018, at this link.

Me @ Today

I started this blog in July 2010 as a way to journal my experiences with long term unemployment as I lost my job at the peak of a recession that occurred back then in April 2009. I ended up deleting my first several months of blog posts as I was just getting the hang of writing blog posts. However, three months later in July 2011, I fired my blog back up and this time it just took off, and I am still publishing on it almost a decade later. In fact, there are currently 650+ blog posts on it.

All of the blog posts on this blog are listed by year and title in a Table of Contents at this link. The table of contents page is also listed at the top of this blog titled Links To All Blog Posts.” Also, it is a personal blog that I consider to be more like a journal.

In April 2018 I started a second blog titled Reflections on the Journey on WordPress. The theme of this second blog is on our journeys as we go through life. Click here to go to that blog.
