The last few months have been very much a time of transition for me. Because of all of this, many different aspects of my life have been shuffled around in my list of priorities, especially as my time has been extremely limited. Unfortunately, Odyssey is one of the many things that has suffered because of it.
Right around the same time that this transitional period began for me, I had a sudden drop-off in Creators, as everyone in my community was having difficulty keeping up with everything they'd obligated themselves to. I wound up with no team here at UIndy except for myself, and that prevented me from wanting to write anything myself. While this is not the ideal situation, it is what I found myself left with.
Since then, I have wrestled with whether or not to attempt to rebuild this community or just let it go. I ultimately decided that I wanted to return to Odyssey and do my best to get my team back up and running again, in large part because I genuinely missed writing articles and working for and with my team. While I'm sure that it will take a decent amount of time to rebuild everything, especially to where things were before so many Creators were unable to continue.
I really do hope that I will be able to return the University of Indianapolis Odyssey team to what it once was, and I hope that there will be many people who will be interested in joining (or rejoining) the team to work with me. I know that this community can be great because it was before, and I have very high hopes that we can reach that point again.
