I have no idea how this semester is already over. Wasn’t Halloween last week? Didn’t football season just start? I must have inadvertently gone down a rabbit hole, waited around for a minute, and reemerged three months later. Call me Rip. Seriously.
But what a stressful, amazing semester it has been! I’m still not done with my latest dissertation chapter. I LOVED teaching again. My students were hilarious and rowdy and intelligent, even if they weren’t all the best writers. Beastie is in full-on terrible-twos mode: she will do it herself (whatever it is).
I have desperately missed posting here. I’ve realized how much I need a creative social outlet separate from my academic and personal life. My goal for winter break is to finish my chapter and then write about all of the other things on my mind. Here’s to all of the things!
