Surfacing again, to say...what?
I miss this blog.
I stopped writing here for very good reasons. Mainly, the stress of constantly needing new and original content meant it wasn't as fun as it used to be. Plus, as much as I loved gathering together ideas and finds and inspiration, I was simply less capable of putting in the time required to, you know, actually be a blogger. Comment responses? What are those again? Graduate school (yup, still in the thick of it!) tends to really force you to rethink your priorities. Blogging was supposed to be a fun and relaxing outlet...it was supposed to relieve the stress I accumulated in my very demanding Ph.D. program, not add to it.
Still, I miss it.
I'm not even sure that anyone could possibly still be reading. But, if you are...you may be seeing just a bit more of me. No promises! But it is a new year, and a new me, with a few new hobbies to boot. I have a good feeling about 2011. We'll see where this adventure takes us.
