Verging on the front of blog failure…
The longest time between posts (ever) has just past and I am left with these thoughts.
1) In its own inexplicable way, I am facing “busyness” with a new urgency. I literally could not let an hour pass today without a massive pileup of meaningful (read: necessitates a thoughtful response) emails.
2) I am in pain.
Yesterday, I hurt my back (again). I’m always cautious about doing academic work while on pain killers, but that fact that I can’t move doesn’t make the world stop.
It was actually quite comical. The pain was mild enough that I was mostly fine so long as I didn’t move. This led to a rather epic conception of how to get around the house. I slid across the floor, pushing myself with my legs and a pillow under my head, and my friend, who came over because I couldn’t reach my food (shelves/drawers are a bit high from the floor), pulled my arms.
Sleep flew out the window with spring break, and I’m due for another pack of highlighters (I spend $60/year on highlighters, true story). But I’m lost in what I love, doing new things, and filling new roles.
…and I’m going through it with all the right people.
