Touch Base Tuesday River Ram Press #InspireWriters #InspireReaders The launch of The Ram Boutique: Volume One is coming fast and we are all working hard to make a masterpiece of an academic journal! It has been such a privilege to feature our 12 Highlighted Authors for the last year and I cannot wait to give them a real build up to their publication date. All the content that you missed and all the content you loved and lost will be back in a beautifully constructed journal.
It’s that time a year again, when the leaves of brilliant reds, oranges and yellows float to the ground and so very slowly that bite of winter can be felt racing up noses with every breath. Children are back in their classrooms, energetic from their summer holiday and ready to start a new year in their education. It is the time when families start huddling up in their homes around warm fires and feeling ready for bed at 6pm with the darkness out their windows. It is also that
I am a nice person. Generally, people find it easy to get along with me and are calmed by the fact that my smile is always genuine. However, the longer I find myself a woman in this world, I am beginning to discover a new level to relationships (and not the romantic stuff). For a long time, like most women, I wanted to deny it all and pretend the problems were my imagination. But these problems are real and in that fact, I am a feminist. Yes, I am a Feminist.

I’ve changed a lot since being home. Set back in location, but advanced in person, is a odd combination to work through. This making me more reserved when it comes to social situations, and I find myself rejecting the idea of connecting with my past – well, most of my past. There are some relationships that, in rediscovery, fit me so well now it’s surprising that there was ever a lull.

We’ve made it to 2013! With this particular New Year, there continue to be changes that I constantly ask myself if I am ready for. Of course the question, can I handle being an adult? I am only 24 after all and the answer’s still undecided, but I’m leaning to the positive. I miss the days of being a student, though they are not long past.
