A Little Info About Me:
My name is Janet Spoon. I am a full-time college student at Simpson University, located in Northern California. The twist? I am one of the oldest students here. I am Mom, Gram, and Great-Gram. Some of my oldest grandchildren are of college age.
I have started theRagingSpoon as a course requirement, but I have always wanted to start a blog in the proverbial some day. From the time I was eight years old, I have wanted to be a journalist. Like the elderly couple in the popular children’s movie Up, life got in the way. I don’t know if I will ever be a journalist, but I believe the most important thing is that I am finally taking steps to be able to say, “I am following my dream.”
TheRagingSpoon may be a bit of a misnomer, for I have learned that it ridiculously harmful to hold onto rage. Use it to your advantage, then let go. Believe me when I say I have had plenty to rage about. I am a survivor: a burn survivor, a cancer survivor and amongst other hazards thrown my way, I have survived three complete semesters now!
This is not a “Christian” blog per se, yet I do believe in God. I believe he is active in every detail of my life. If I ask Him for help, He is there. I am living proof of His willingness to rescue those who trust and lean on Him.
This is a blog in which I hope will be filled with humor, observations, a few rants, a little poetry, and an occasional sprinkling of sage wisdom. Thanks for reading!
