I recognize I haven’t been around much lately. Whether or not its affected you, I feel the absence of regular blog-posting. The thing is that the last two weeks have pretty much been chock full of activity. And honestly, I’m glad. I had an amazing vacation followed by a real-life slap in the face via school work.
After vacation, I suddenly realized that a HUGE project was due in only a few short hours. For nearly all of this week I was feverishly reading, writing, and editing an entirely pointless critical analysis of Charles Dickens’ Bleak House.
Fortunately, reading Bleak House (a piece of my Book Bucket List) means that I’ll be able to do a book review. But the review will have to wait because today is catch up day, when I get to all the stuff that was ignored this week because of impending homework-based doom.
Like cleaning clothes.
Writing toward a deadline, while providing a sense of accomplishment, always kind of kills my joy of writing for fun. Thus, I anticipate more episodic blog-silence in the coming weeks. May (end of semester) will see my return. But I’m going to do what I can to keep posting, at least snippets. I like my blog. I want to keep it happy and well fed so it doesn’t turn on me.
Here are some photos of things that kept me from doing homework on vacation, thus requiring a frenzied week this week. It’s a snowball effect, isn’t it?
