Beginning in the midst of an already long adventure!

So I have recently found that writing things helps me process them and since I am also hope full that my experiences will help others I decided to start a blog.

So here is a little about myself just to started off, my name is Alyson but most people call me Aly. I am 28 years old and I have recently discovered no one is in charge of my life but me. During the week days I am a pre-kindergarten teacher which I absolutely love doing (most of the time) and this is a hard time of year for me where I have to say goodbye to all my children as they move onto kindergarten in September. But come on who wouldn't want to act like a kid all day and get paid for it?

Another defining aspect of me is that I am a cancer survivor! Right around this time last year I was diagnosed with stage IV Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma with a c-MYC translocation. I under went extensive chemotherapy and by December 20th, 2010 I had achieved a complete remission!! However since then I have become an entirely new person and so this is why I have started to blog.

To get into the blog part there is nothing particular that this blog will be about. I imagine it will mainly be about everyday life however since I am trying to change my life I think that it could be quite entertaining yet informative for others. Oh yea and please excuse my "writing" sometime I just ramble and then forget to edit :-)

So here's to the adventures that have yet to come!
