And begin

I decided to start another blog. Many of you might not have known, but I kept a blog religiously for about 3 years, one of which was my year in South Korea. I love that I have those blogs now. I've always been a fan of journaling, perhaps because it's so easy to forget what your daily life was like. I like remembering.

Also, since I am, yet again, far from my place of birth and separated from many people I love, I think it will be a good way to share what is going on in my life, so when I see people, it won't go something like this: " have you been up to?" And I will admit, when I moved to Nebraska, I sort of disappeared from Michigan, with nary a "Goodbye!" or an "I'll miss you, friend!" It was a difficult and strange in-between point in my life, and I'm glad it's over.

In case you didn't know, the current title of my blog refers to the nickname theme that has started since I've moved to Nebraska. It must include both my name and another word that has the long-a sound toward the beginning. Examples:

Renadio (the first and most enduring)
Renapist (the most offensive)
Renanal (the most hated)
Renalienated (the most brilliant)
Renainbow (the most adorable)

Which ones am I forgetting?

Anywho, I'm off to try to find a jogging route through my new little hometown of Waverly, Nebraska. Then, I shall watch the U of M vs. MSU game with my Michigan homies.


  1. yeah, the Keyzer club totally gave me a million nicknames...some of those are:
    Steinbecca (in reference to my love of John Steinbeck)
    Beckliada (David's favorite, because he had a little song to go with it...)
    I feel your pain, my friend.

  2. Glad to be aboard. Excited to see what is going on everyday in Waverly. Go Blue/green.
