|My brain in graduate school....|
OK. I have been at this school thing for YEARS now. I got my undergrad degree in 3 years and turned around and charged back into Grad school. I'm actually starting to get near the end goal...sorta. And I'm fried. Totally brains gone, fried.
I know some of you have missed my blogging. I'VE missed my blogging. Hell, I miss ME! Have really struggled this semester with paper work, and I think I maybe have climbed on top of it a bit now, but the at the cost of my last remaining 2 brain cells, it feels like.
I suspect that I'm maybe more than usually tired right now (that paper work thing I mentioned) and that a little self rest and care will help a bit. So I am refusing to have an intelligent thought for the next 3 days (Friday + the weekend). I don't have the brain capacity to spare. I'm gonna vegetate. Rest. Let the little poor shriveled brain cells down there in the dark see if they can rejuvenate and grow a little.
I'm going to spend time with my wife. I'm going to spend time with my poor lonely puppy and my cats. I'm going to sleep whenever possible. Maybe build a fire and curl up in front of it tomorrow night. Read something that isn't school work. (I'm re-reading Les Miserable by Victor Hugo, probably out loud to Dreamweaver, but that's actually light reading compared to what I'm reading in school. Think a about that for a minute folks...)
Mostly I just want to say, I miss my blog. I miss my readers! I miss having the intelligence to be able to write coherently here at the end of a long day. I miss having time, for go'sakes, to be able to write more than a few token words every now and then.
I view life in the metaphor of walking the Labyrinth, so somewhere on this turning spiraling path is the way through grad school. I'm kinda holding on to that. And I ask, please, those that read my blog, don't give up on me. Really. This blog is not defunct. I will keep posting here and there - get me out and through and done, and I'll start back to how I used to write. It may still be awhile. Because I have to be responsible and finish grad school.
But it isn't forever.
I keep telling myself that.
