Sara’s Musings

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 major recession that occurred back in 2008-09 (I lost it in April 2009), and I was never able to secure another job in my professional field again after a massive job search that covered several years.

For over two decades I worked in Academia at colleges and universities, large and small, public and private, secular and Christian, in the area of Student Affairs/Student Services. And then, without warning, my career in academia was over (prematurely by at least ten years) since my years’ long job search never produced another job. So I guess you could say I’m officially retired at this point in time. Additional information is available on my A Brief Biopage, and also on my second blog at this link.

When I started this blog, Sara’s Musings,” in July 2010, I ended up deleting my first several months of blog posts in April 2011 as I was just getting the hang of writing blog posts, and most of those first posts sounded like a personal diary. 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 over a decade later. All of the blog posts on this blog are listed by year and title in a Table of Contents page at this link. The table of contents page is also available at the top of this blog titled Links To All Blog Posts.” In April 2018, I created a second blog titled, Reflections on the Journey,” on WordPress (click here to go to that blog). The latest blog post on each blog is listed below:
