I’m back. You missed me right? Come on, you know you did. It’s ok to admit it. 😉
I was away for three days but, to me, it felt simultaneously longer and shorter than that. I missed my bed and my computer. I missed my kitchen and my view. I saw people I love and offered support and love in return. Some unexpected stuff happened. I’m still processing it.
Now, half-term/reading week is almost over. Only tomorrow left to enjoy and I’m equal parts disappointed and relieved. On the one hand, a return to reassuring routine. On the other: early mornings, long days, and heavy thinking.
Possibly the overriding emotion is one of guilt. I did not read anything. I mean, sure, I read some stuff (Leslie Jamison’s Empathy Exams, Terry Pratchett’s Eric) but no course related perusals of heavy textbooks, no eye-watering examination of online, jargon-filled journals. I haven’t even finished my Grad Skills assignment – theoretically the easiest one of them all – because (get this) I’m struggling with the self-reflection aspect of it. This wouldn’t be a problem if it wasn’t due on Wednesday. Silly deadlines.
Anyway, since it’s Sunday, I’d like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very productive, enjoyable, entertaining, love-filled, stonker of a week. Get out there and conquer the shit out of the world.
I believe in you!
