I managed to post something yesterday. That was a miracle in itself. So how am I supposed to remember to post something on my blogversary? It’s the day after I already posted something.
I would love to write more often. Unfortunately, I am still deep in the grad school life. I write all the time. It’s not fun writing either. It’s boring stick-up-my-ass writing. Pages upon pages per week of that. And loads of reading. I get weeklong breaks about every 2.5 months, and during those breaks, I rarely feel like doing much writing.
This sounds like I don’t enjoy the academic experience. I do. Most of the time. I love learning. I enjoy reading research. I just do too much of it at the moment. It’s not forever, though. I’m looking to be done at the end of March.
Knowing the end of grad school is coming so soon has me antsy. I’m pondering getting a real job again. It’d be nice to have a steady paycheck and the comfort of that. Some real health insurance would be nice too. I have an abdominal injury that is doing better than it was the last time I wasted time trying to get help for it. But who knows how long that will last?
So blah blah blah. Happy blogversary to me. Maybe I’ll figure out how to do more of this over the next 12 months. Maybe that won’t come until the end of March. Maybe it’ll come sooner. Maybe it’ll come later. One thing I’ve learned is not to set expectations for that. That’ll only guarantee that I screw it up.
