So Now What Am I Supposed To Do?

The Texas 83rd Legislature has completed its session. There will be no more bills filed. There will be no more committee meetings. There will be no more votes.

Given that I have spent the past several months reporting and assessing Texas legislation, this has left some wondering what they will expect out of me and the other contributors here at Mental Aikido.

I cannot speak for the contributors. Well, I could, but I won't.

However, Jared Royka is writing at his own site, again. Some of his articles will be cross-posted here. Some may be political in nature. Others may be comments on society. Still, others may be in regards to veterans' issues or PTS. We'll see what he has up his sleeve.

Melissa has a list of reviews she wants to write. I am sure she will get around to them, eventually. If not, the list will grow, old items will be purged, and she will still have a deep well to draw from. She is also still in school, despite having crossed Texas A&M's stage. So, she has some academic and practical application hoops to jump and a couple of large tests to take this summer. Her own blog contains various works from her professional life, her experiences in grad school, and poetry.

As for humble little old me, I will always find something to write about. Prior to covering state-level legislation in Texas, I covered a variety of topics. I also write op-eds and analysis. The first Friday of each month, I will continue to post my layman's look at the BLS numbers (unemployment, etc.).

I also have my list of books to review. Summer movie season is starting up. I'm sure there will be reviews in there somewhere as well.

Also, election season in Texas is not that far off. Then we'll have the 2014 mid-term elections. There will be executive actions, and court decisions. I have some investigative stuff going on as well. So, there is plenty.

We are not disappearing.
